This broadcast will focus on the irrational veneration of Joseph Smith that occurs in the Mormon Church that is equal to, or over that of the Lord Jesus Christ, during the month of December. As Smith was born on December 23, 1805, frequently the focus of the Mormon is redirected to this false prophet, rather than to our only Prophet Jesus Christ.
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.
Growing up in Mormonism, we did not talk about the Cross. Instead, we were taught that Jesus atoned for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane. We did not talk about the cross and were told not to display it. The Mormon teaching says that the cross could not exceed the Garden, but the Bible shows that the Cross is what triumphed over our sin.
