Faith vs Works

September 15th, 2015

When those who comment on the scriptures, with regard to faith and works, say, "I believe James when he says 'faith without works is dead'". Yet another may say, "I believe what Paul says on that subject". According to Paul if grace is come then we no longer need works, but Paul is saying we no longer need the Law of Moses when we have faith in the grace of Jesus Christ.

My Apology for ignoring the Reverend King

July 27th, 2015

Will the Real Mormons Stand Up and Sound the Alarm? is an attack on the foundations of racism and polygamy in the LDS Church. It also provides a brief history of the church and a brief account of my life in the church. Not covered in my book is the fact that it also serves as an act of penance for my failure to properly respect the Reverend King during his lifetime. I wish to apologize for that failure in this article and give my reasons for that failure. This apology takes the form of an account of the cultural warfare we are losing with radical atheists and those who have accepted their priorities. We should have helped with the battle for civil rights in our country while we fought communism.

FALSE PRIDE FOLLOWS DECADES OF DENYING PAST MORMON FAILURES

May 2nd, 2015

Our general authorities and local leaders deserve our prayers and good will. They also deserve to know when their actions are threatening the testimonies of the members. The problems some local leaders and general authorities have caused me has left me feeling that I have the right, even the obligation to sound off about it. I left the LDS Church for twenty five years because of the opposition I encountered when I stood up to racists and discovered over a century of denials about Brigham Young's false doctrine. Out of my concern for others who have been chased out of the church and have not yet found their way back, I have written Will the Real Mormons Stand Up and Sound the Alarm? When I returned to the church I found that the First Presidency was very tolerant of my new and much less naive testimony. Some local influencial high priests, to their shame, were not tolerant. They need to feel ashamed of the things they put me through. Confronting them did little good in most cases so I wrote the book.

HOW RACISM GAINED A FOOTHOLD IN THE CHURCH

January 17th, 2015

My latest book has been published and is available at www.archwaypublishing.com. It is titled Will the Real Mormons Stand Up and Sound the Alarm?. It is available at other vendors, but it is more profitable for me if you buy from the publisher.

Racism gained a foothold in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because the Lord did not require new converts to take a stand for or against racism or slavery. In the early days of the LDS Church slavery was a world-wide business. Racists ideology was used to justify slavery and slavery incouraged racism. But, not all slave owners were racists and not all racists were slave owners. Joseph Smith, our first latter-day prophet and leader of the Church was neither a racist or slave owner and he ordained at least one black man.
