When President Nelson called the use of the word Mormon a victory of Satan I knew the church had a loose cannon at the helm. People I know in the Church Office Building couldn’t believe it. It was a huge deal and a lot of expense to change things in the church to meet President Nelson’s order to remove the world Mormon and rename things.
The major gutting and remodeling of pioneer temples will not be popular. He’s completely gutted the Salt Lake Temple basement and is going to turn the ordinance rooms into bland theaters. Much of the 19th Century charm is going to be lost. The historic font room will be gutted and remodeled into something else.
The massive announcement and building of temples is getting ridiculous. In the future all the underused temples will be viewed as Nelson’s blunder. Temples will become a burden and a nuisance in the future instead of something rare, inspiring and sacred.
Using the term continued restoration and making bold changes will make the members wonder why we even bother to follow the D&C, Pearl of Great Price and The Book of Mormon. What value do the past prophets have when the current one contradicts their teachings and claims he’s going to change a lot of what they set up in the church.
Nelson is causing confusion with the members. References and words former prophets used and even sang in songs and showed pride in are a victory of Satan. So I guess Ezra Taft Benson was passed of the devil when he sang “I’m a Mormon Boy”.
The more Nelson changes and the more temples he builds the less recognizable the church I grew up in becomes. If Mormon is bad why is the church using the Book of Mormon? Was the Meet the Mormons program a result of Satan having control in the church. If past prophets allowed Satan to influence the use of the word Mormon in the church, does that mean they were inspired by Satan and not God?
It makes no sense. I’m confused at what the church is anymore. If it’s a home based church why are members expected to attend Sunday meetings? Isn’t a home based church having church at home? If this is the case why are the members listening to people outside the home? How can a Salt Lake based church be a home based church. I have no idea what it means.
President Nelson’s changes are illogical. If all this stuff has to be changed wasn’t it wrong to begin with. Why not just dump the old church teachings all together and start with a clean slate.
