Church News On The Importance Of Righteous Women

Recommended Posts

According to the church news article, Elder M. Russell Ballard said, “Today, the Internet 

is full of those lying in wait to deceive the uninformed and inexperienced.  In our search 

for gospel truth, we not only need to find reliable sources but we also need to give the 

Lord equal time in our daily pursuits to study the scriptures and the words of the Lord’s 

servants.”

 

How can you classify reliable sources if Latter-day Saints cannot accept as truth all 

that is taught in church manuals, magazines, or in speeches given in General Conference?

For example, the March 2008 Ensign magazine, in The Atonement of Christ article, says, 

"His ransom for Adam’s original transgression so that no member of the human family is 

held responsible for that sin ... while all members of the human family are freely given 

a reprieve from Adam’s sin through no effort of their own, they are not given a reprieve 

from their own sins unless they pledge faith in Christ ... and press forward in faithful 

endurance the remainder of life’s journey".

 

The article mentions "Elder Ballard spoke of the importance of eternal families and choosing 

to become a disciple of a loving Heavenly Father".

 

Did he really mean to become a disciple of a loving Heavenly Son [Jesus] or does he infer

Jesus is this loving Heavenly Father?

 

Thanks,

Jim

Since when did anyone say that?

He means that we should become  a disciple of God; which includes the Father and Jesus.  Aside from that there are a few ways that Jesus can also be called our father. But if they said "Heavenly Father", they probably meant God the Father. I am not really sure what the problem is.

Really?

 

You can be a disciple of both the Father AND the Son without them being the same being.
