Hey all this post is just to introduce you to a new series that will be taking pretty much all year on this blog. Often people who do this ministry get criticized for just quoting from Old Mormon Sources that can be seen as out of date, rather than dealing with the up to date teachings of the Mormon Church.
With that in mind we will be going chapter by chapter through the 2013 Mormon Teaching Manual that is The Teachings of the Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow. I think this will be a great way of looking from an evangelical Christian perspective, what members of the LDS Church are going through today, and what should represent generally accepted Mormon Belief, however in reality there are quite few set systematic beliefs that are held by all Mormons, for example whether God was once a man or not, and if so was He once a sinner? Is something that you will find a mass of different views on from Mormons.
Lorenzo Snow should be a particularly interesting Mormon Prophet to hear from as the classic line “As man now is God once was, as God is many may become” came as a revelation from Him. Often Mormons say that this is out of date and no longer accepted in the Mormon Church, this book should bring some interesting additions to that discussion.
As well as this we will be looking at the ensign magazine every month and putting some thoughts out on that, and plan to review every session of general conference every six months. So its going to be a busy year, please pray for what we are doing and please leave any comments you like.
There is now a small number of us involved with this ministry, but if you are a Christian who feels you would like to get involved with what we are doing, please email me on email@example.com as there is a lot more to come and a we need a lot of help.
