Fruit That Will Satisfy the Conditions of Repentance; One Cannot Repent Without Knowing The Mysteries Part 1

AndersAfterword

30 And now, my beloved brethren, for ye are my brethren, and ye ought to be beloved, and ye ought to bring forth works which are meet for repentance, seeing that your hearts have been grossly hardened against the word of God, and seeing that ye are a lost and a fallen people. (Alma 9) Alma understood a plain and precious concept that eludes modern readers of the Book of Mormon (BOM) because of the commandments of men in the church that deny the commandments of God recorded in scripture! The paradox and absurdity of this contradiction should be self-evident. Alma knew that repentance is directly related to one’s relationship with the Word of God … Read More

In the first two parts of this topic, we’ve discussed many things with regard to the Word of God. In this post we want to bring the Servant of God back to the forefront of our minds and revisit the Great and Marvelous Work (GMW) or the Isaiah Story. When Jehovah stands up, He will come with other servants who will be CALLED OF GOD to declare the truth throughout the earth wherever the Holy Spirit takes them. That’s how it always works with God’s true kingdom. There are not any committees or official “missions” to which missionaries are assigned… God will work His own work as he has done throughout the history of this … Read More

The Word of God: Part 2

AndersEssays on Doctrine

A profound and oft-quoted dialogue occurred between the Master of Life and the Roman governor of Judaea as follows, “Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth?” (John 18:37-38). Jesus’ critically important statement was that, “Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” And this brings us to the heart of the matter regarding the Word of God. A choice is placed … Read More

Anyone who takes this journey in the Holy Scriptures searching for truth and lays aside the false precepts of their religious tradition will tell you that the process of having their eyes and ears opened is one of the most emancipating experiences of mortality. Truth comes at you from every page dripping wet with light you never saw before. The brilliant white radiance of truth is nearly blinding and it brings consummate joy to your soul as the chains of bondage fall away. How can it be that mere words on a page can come to life and leave you brimming full with understanding? As the Isaiah Story came to life, we could finally appreciate … Read More
