Quote of the Week

"(40-7) We Can Become like God Because We Have the Seed of Deity Within Us. When Jesus was created after the fashion and in the likeness of the Father, and was therefore in the image of his Father, did he strive also to become like God in every other way? What does the word equal mean? And since Jesus thought that it was not robbery for him to become like God, what does Paul say you should strive to do as well? (See Philippians 2:5–8, 12; 3 Nephi 27:27.)”

 --The Life and Teachings of Jesus & His Apostles Religion 211-212, p. 328. Bold and italics in original.

Review of In Sacred Loneliness: The Plural Wives of Joseph Smith (Signature Books, 1997)

Although many Mormons know that second LDS President Brigham Young was a practicing polygamist, some may not realize that Joseph Smith had many wives as well. When this issue is broached, I have heard it said more than once that we were connocting nothing more than an anti-Mormon lie. What LDS writer Todd Compton does in this book is explain details about each of Joseph Smith's 33 wives. Reading it may cause you to forever change your opinon about the founder of the LDS Church.

Doesn’t the good works (fruit) produced in Mormonism prove this is the true church?

Pointing to Mormonism’s welfare program, relief supplies during times of disaster, and other humanitarian efforts, some Latter-day-Saints believe that “fruit” such as these legitimizes their church. Should the LDS Church's "good works" legitimize its standing as "Christian"?

If I no longer believe the teachings of the Mormon Church, should I remain in the church or leave it for good?

A few years ago there seemed to be a movement to encourage those leaving Mormonism for Christianity to remain active in the LDS Church. After all, the rationale goes, wouldn’t there be a better chance for one’s friends and relatives to convert to Christianity if someone (a new Christian) was able to stay in the local LDS branch or ward and, though covertly, let everyone know the truth? Is this a reasonable rationale?
