December 12, 2021 - Lured?

Getting through the hazards of life requires understanding, skill, experience, and self-assurance like that required to sink a difficult basket under pressure. In the game of life, that is called righteous character. Such character is not developed in moments of great challenge or temptation. That is when it is used. Character is woven quietly from the threads of hundreds of correct decisions (like practice sessions). When strengthened by obedience and worthy acts, correct decisions form a fabric of character that brings victory in time of great need.

Elder Richard G. Scott, "Trust in the Lord", General Conference, April 1989


All over the Internet, we can find messages and propaganda that are contrary to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We, especially, can find messages from "ex-mormons" and those bent on actively destroying that gospel.


These messages can be enticing and convincing. Please DO NOT BE DECEIVED! Satan has had eons to perfect his lies and deceptions. He is good at it and he is now throwing his best at you and me. Recently, I've lost a couple good friends to those deceptions and it breaks my heart.


We will most assuredly be confronted with these deceptions that will test our spiritual fortitude, they will test our very nature as children of God. Know this....you and I are indeed children of God. We are here on this earth to be tested, to make a decision of who and what to follow. That is the purpose of this life. We already chose Christ once, otherwise we would not have been born. Satan is actively trying to make us choose him, still, and with even more intensity and urgency in this life. Although that option appears to be more attractive and enticing, we will be slaves to him for eternity if we go that direction. Think about that.


Alternatively, there is complete freedom, peace, and happiness for ETERNITY if we stick with the road less traveled....Jesus Christ, His gospel, His church. Stay aboard the Good Ship Zion and do not jump overboard. Build your character and testimony so that when that deception comes, and it will, we will not be lured away into falsehood and eternal slavery by convincing messages and other fiery darts.
