Brigham Young In General Conference 2013

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear Brigham Young in General Conference?

We have a treat for you for this year’s General Conference. Brigham Young will be  preaching portions of his selected sermons. I have only seen short clips of this project when it was in production so I greatly look forward to viewing the final product. If it is like anything else that Bart Pascoal has done, you will not want to miss it. You can learn more about this project and the other works of MormonInfo Graphics here.

Mormonism Confirms That It Is Not Moving Towards Christianity

Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But deceitful are the kisses of an enemy (Proverbs 27:6).

A number of years ago I was asked to be on a local call-in radio program to talk about Mormonism. The San Antonio LDS temple was conducting a public open house at that time. The radio host who thought of the idea wanted two guests, one person representing Mormonism and one person who disagreed with it.

Hans Mattsson’s Mormon world is turned up-side-down

Last week I shared some of my thoughts about the audio recording of a Swedish Fireside meeting where two Mormon Church historians, former seventy Marlin K. Jensen and Richard E. Turley Jr. were sent to Stockholm Sweden to answer the doctrinal and historical questions of a number of Swedish Mormon leaders, most notably, former seventy Hans Mattsson. I will continue at about the one hour and seven minute mark of the two and a half hour meeting. Like last week, the transcript is copied as is, including typos. Read More …

Some Mormons Search the Web and Find Doubt- Evidence Ministries’ Take- Part One

Former Seventy, Hans Mattsson now doubts the historical claims of the Mormon Church.

This story is Huge. Hans Mattsson is a Mormon who was at one time a member of the third quorum of the seventy in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was the highest ranking official in Sweden and oversaw activities for the Mormon Church all over Europe. Because he was in a position of authority, members would come to him with questions about Mormonism that had come up during their study and preparation for teaching Sunday school lessons. These questions eventually led Mattsson to doubt the history and even some doctrines of Mormonism.
