    In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the same doctrines taught in Salt Lake City are taught in churches in Rome. The same doctrines taught in churches in Japan are taught in churches in South Africa. The same doctrines taught in Canada are taught in Brazil.

    And what is even more glorious, those sites may all be talking about the same exact lesson on the same exact Sunday.

    As demanded by Christ, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a Church of ORDER.

    Correction…

    Paul made it clear that new members were no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; (Eph 2:20-21)

    Paul further made it clear that Christ gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: (Eph 4:11-12).

    And let’s not forget that Paul made it clear that these prophets and apostles were receiving revelation………………….including about the Gentiles….that the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: (Eph 3:5-6)

    You can’t completely remodel Christ’s Church, change the doctrines (e.g., Godhead, baptism by immersion, etc.), eliminate His Twelve Special Witnesses, declare Christ to be mute and the the heavens closed and be the Church Christ gave His Saints.

    The New Testament is before us. It is clear and precise in what it states. I refer you to The New Testament as the backing for my words.

    Christ established His Church with His doctrine (e.g., baptism by immersion as a symbol of the death and burial of a sinful man and the resurrection of a new man – as taught by Paul; worthly partaking of the Sacrament oft in His remembrance) upon the foundation of divine revelation, Prophets and Apostles (a quorum of Twelve Special Witnesses of Christ including the addition of Matthias, Paul and the Christ’s own brother James when the quorom lacked its intended Twelve), His Holy Priesthood (authority to act in Christ’s name and perform saving ordinances), etc.

    If the majority of Christianity today does not believe in the foundation of Christ’s original Church, divine revelation, Prophets and Apostles, baptism by one with authority, etc., then how does one take comfort in believing that personal interpretations are going to save them?

    Are you referring to the oneness of God the Father and Christ where Christ prays that His disciples can be one like He and the Father are one and that they all can be one together?

    Or are you referring to Christ’s comment to Mary to not touch Him because He had not ascended to His Father?

    Maybe you are referring to Christ’s baptism?

    Or are you referring to Stephen’s dying testimony that he saw Christ standing on the right hand of God the Father?

    Or maybe you are referring to the numerous times that Christ prayed unto the Father?

    Or were you highlighting the one where Christ must return to the Father so that He can send the Holy Ghost.

    The trinity is not supported by the New Testament. Yes it may be supported by a scripture or two, but then even Paul helps to clear that up by stating that Christ is in the express image of His Father. Yes, they are identical….not one being but two beings that look exactly alike.

    As for doctrine, there is but one Church that has the authority to act in God’s name, one Church with the same structure of Christ’s original Church, one Church that has fulfilled latter-day prophesy (angel flying in the midst of heaven, stick of Joseph and stick of Judah, the coming of Elijah and the turning the children to their fathers), one Church led by Christ today and that Church bears His Name even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    Actually, if the courts and government respected the US Constitution, then nothing would be required. But, seeing how neither uphold the US Constitution it is apparent that something else must be done.

    As for strength of religion, Christ’s Church, The Kingdom of God on Earth, is here to stay led by Christ Himself.

    AlexS1 – I read the article and watched the video and either you do not speak English or you do not understand it.

    Louise – Let’s examine your comment for a second.

    1) Nothing in that statement declares that God’s words had an end in His Son, Jesus Christ. It states that God spoke to man by Prophets in the past and God spoke to man through His son in the present.
    2) The Gospels of Jesus Christ were not written for decades after Christ’s death and ascension. If God had ended divine revelation with His Son, then how were the Gospels divinely written?
    3) The Apostle Paul revealed many of God’s truths after the death and ascension of Jesus Christ. Are we to understand that you believe Paul’s writings to be uninspired (i.e., written without divine revelation)?
    4) Teachings of Peter, teachings of James, John the Revelator’s Revelations all came after the death and ascension of Jesus Christ. Are these not divinely written scriptures?
    5) Christ, Himself, told Peter that upon this rock (i.e., divine revelation) I will build my Church (Christ was not referring to Peter but to the statement he made in the previous verses…..Blessed art thou Simon…for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in Heaven)
    6) And lastly, why would Christ have taught His Apostles (John 14:26) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

    The Holy Ghost shall teach you ALL THINGS, ‘and’ help you remember my words.

    Maybe you can enlighten us on what they compromised on.

    Homosexuality, adultery, fornication and self-gratification are all immoral and unholy practices that will never be accepted by Christ’s Church because they will never be accepted by Christ.

    To deny another individual the right to act, think and otherwise do what they choose (as long as it does not violate another’s rights) is a form of INTOLERANCE. The Apostles made it clear that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe in man’s agency and we will be TOLERANT of another’s right to choose even when we may very much oppose their morals and religious convictions.

    I read the same article as you and I did not hear them cave.

    Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints still believe that LBGT participants are immoral? Absolutely. Would they allow them to be baptized into The Church while practicing such immoral acts? Absolutely not. Would they prohibit practicing participants (already members) from partaking of the Sacrament, participating in Priesthood Ordinance or attending the House of the Lord? Absolutely.

    xianpoxi – I agree. The last paragraph was unnecessary. My apologize.

  • [31] January 27, 2015 at 2:04pm

    Yes, Christ’s restored Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, led by Prophets, Apostles, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers for the perfecting of the Saints, for the work of the ministry and for the edifying of the body of Christ with Christ as the chief cornerstone spoke.

    And to which apostate religion are you associated? No where in the Bible did Christ end divine revelation. Apostacy.

    Man came from monkeys. And this is why we still have monkeys………We must have come from that special monkey bread.

    Scientific hypothesis are not like opinions, Scientists have a lot of them, but that does not make them fact.

    Didn’t the Democrats just release a report on torture where no Replicans were involved and no first hand witnesses were questioned. What the hell are they whining about?

    To which country are you referring?

    Each and every federal worker is already a burden to our taxes. There income must be covered by 100% of the rest of our taxes. And now they demand added benefits? I say fire the whole lot of them. Federal jobs (in many respects) are no better off than union jobs (i.e., great guarantees with litte performance demands).

    He went out a coward who could not accept personal accountability.

    May God bless his family and I pray that they do not share his same selfish unaccountable attitude.

    The problem with liberals:
    1)They believe that freedom is free (i.e., they fail to appreciate the loss of life giving us these freedoms).
    2)They believe that the government will continue to ensure these freedoms (which anyone with a brain can tell they are stealing our freedoms).
    3)They believe their freedoms are some how infringed upon when others don’t conform to their will.

    Games are played by teams. An individual can have a great game, but that does not mean the team will succeed.

    God is not a Cowboy fan, a Packer fan or a Jets fan. There are far greater aspects to life than sports.

    “I Co-Founded One of the Most Popular Christian Rock Bands Ever… and I’m Now An Atheist.”

    I am a devout Christian and I will never associate rock bank with Christianity. Saying the name Christ while head banging doesn’t make you a Christian. It makes one a hypocrit.

    God has a choir, not a band.

    Obama serves the wrong master. He has violated the US Constitution on many fronts and would steal our individual freedoms if given the opportunity. Obama has nothing in common with our FOUNDERS.
