Conference Talks

Last Saturday in Boise there was a conference addressing issues particularly relevant to Latter-day Saints. The recordings are now available and can be viewed at this site: Rescuing the Restoration

Although many people think the Restoration is entirely preserved and accessible exclusively through an organization, such as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that is not at all the case. In many ways the institutions of the Restoration are so far separated from what Joseph Smith began that the first generation of believers would not recognize the modern church-daughters of that beginning.

These talks provide some valuable insights into the religion begun by Joseph Smith, and how to continue to believe in the Restoration. We can all own our faith. Indeed, we will all be judged by how we practice our religion, and cannot push responsibility onto the leaders of the various churches. Whether leaders say they cannot lead you astray, or that they are the “only true church” neither of those claims are true. Their churches have been led astray, and none of them are anything different than what the Lord condemned in the First Vision speaking to Joseph. When it comes to the Restoration churches, they are all wrong, and all their creeds are an abomination in the Lord’s sight. The proponents of them are all corrupt. They draw near to God with their lips, but their hearts are far from the Lord; they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof. They cannot be reformed back into God’s favor at this point, for He has begun something new to rescue the Restoration. You would be well advised to get out of their company.
