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: 23077.01)

…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: 1642.22)

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. We cannot bear one another’s burdens without fellowshipping with one another. And bearing one another’s burdens presumes that you know what the burdens are that someone else carries.

At every conference that was held, someone was elected by common consent to preside at the conference. Usually, if Joseph Smith was there, they elected him, but they could have elected anyone.

Both of the two largest Mormon divisions have experienced significant splintering. The institutions claiming to be an authentic version of what Joseph Smith founded have failed to produce the results Joseph foretold. This failure is due, in large measure, because Joseph’s teachings have been abandoned or contradicted. There is still a great deal left undone. Joseph told us to expect great events among the gentiles, Native Americans, and remnant of Jewish… (Search hits: 24 in body, 0 in title, 0 in comments. Score: 1288.02)
