The very foundation of each element of your Worship is based on the true character and nature of God. If you get the character and nature of God wrong, then all aspects of your Worship of God will be wrong at best and offensive to Him at wickedest. The Biblical view of the very character and nature of God will be reviewed in this program. His explanation and His description of Himself is the standard we will use.
Our lives are full of real examples and tangible experiences that have taught us that nothing is free in this world. We must work for our food, work for homes and work for every element of substance to keep us alive. But this is a fallen world and it is not the world in which Christ has designed and taught His Gospel, His Promises and His Love for us. The wonderful gift of Grace and the dead value of Works is the focus of this Program.
Throughout the many thousands of years the Bible has been translated, copied and edited, it would seem very logical that significant changes may have entered into the Sacred Text, either by accident or by design. The fact is quite the opposite. With the surviving copies of both the Old and the New Testaments a simple comparison from within different cultures and languages across many hundreds of generations, the Bible can be proven to be 99.5% accurate in word and 100% in doctrine.
As man has influenced the foundation of Organized Religion, we must remember that Jesus Christ Himself came to re-focus the lives and actions of men on Him and not on the Law or the Additions that the Religious men of that day had invented. Jesus alone is enough, Jesus alone is abundant, and Jesus alone is sufficient. This program will re-focus our modern lives on the basic principles Christ taught concerning our Salvation in Him Alone.
One of the purposes of the Holy Scriptures is to give us a true sense of independence without being at the total mercy of this chaotic and brutal world. A true Biblical understanding of our Salvation in Christ can sustain us through the challenges of this world by providing a correct perspective of our life here and our life to come. Peace, tranquility and harmony within ourselves and with others is one of the blessings of our Knowledge and Acceptance of Jesus Christ.
This program focuses on the fact that Joseph Smith Jr. could not remember, record or recite with any clarity or consistency the first and most important element of the supposed “Restoration” of the True Church of Jesus Christ. Continue reading “The First Vision – Confusion in the Woods”
The “Warnick Watch” is a comparative study to highlight some of the younger and most successful intellectuals within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The focus of this review will be to compare and contrast the Church Historical Essays dealing with Becoming Like God, Polygamy – Polyandry, and The Translation of the Book of Mormon, with the thoughts of Brigham Young University Professor: Sean C. Warnick.
Professor Warnick, who supremely represents one of the finest examples of a very rational and exceptionally well-educated Priesthood holder, is the son of Charles P. Warnick who was ordained by the Prophet Thomas S. Monson, who then ordained me as a High Priest in the LDS Church. As demonstrated by the following example of Professor Warnick’s work, he is very much capable of an uncompromising rational and coherent statement on these issues of Doctrine and we eagerly await his response.
