Only One Doctrine Left

This is a personal message for one of the men on the High Council who advocated my excommunication. He is a friend. I spoke with him yesterday and, after reflecting on it overnight, have something to say to him and anonymous comments on my blog espousing similar beliefs:____________________________In LDS Mormonism there is really only one doctrine left. Everything else is subordinate and changeable. But this single demand is paramount. If you disbelieve this position, then LDS Mormonism has no place for you. The doctrine: We follow a man whom we call a prophet. If you disbelieve this, and think you… (Search hits: 13 in body, 3 in title, 0 in comments. Score: 22972.58)

…this, and anyone comes to you, baptize them. Refuse no one. Freely you get from God, therefore, freely give to others. Do not charge to perform an ordinance. The ordinance is between them and God and they need to have it performed between them and someone God has asked to do it. You become the people God asks to do it. Before baptism, teach them the doctrine of Christ, which Christ immediately discusses following His instruction on baptism. “Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, I will declare unto you my doctrine.

2 Nephi 28: 4

false doctrine was not taught. They seem to have instead insured that no doctrine is taught. In my view, correlation has failed in its purpose. It has stifled the Spirit and stripped us of doctrine which should be prized and taught. Furthermore, it has not insured the doctrine it permits to be taught is true or consistent with scripture or earlier teachings. Even though correlation has not prevented us from having errors of doctrine I do not believe an error of doctrine makes a person a bad man. Joseph Smith said: “I did not like the old man being called… (Search hits: 27 in body, 0 in title, 36 in comments. Score: 1634.79)

The beginning of the restoration they were called “church-es,” plural. They were not called “a church.” They were societies of believers in different locations, and they governed themselves differently and locally.

One of the constellations immediately associated with Virgo, located next to her in the northern sky, is a constellation anciently depicted as a mother seated on a throne holding a son in her hands. This image of a woman seated on a throne with her son is located just to the north, above Virgo. It suggests both the mother and her son descended from a throne they once occupied in heaven, and is destined to return again there…. (Search hits: 26 in body, 0 in title, 0 in comments.
