Anonymous Bishop

I've met Anonymous Bishop personally -- and I won't hold his stunning good looks or his charming manner against him!

His message is what matters. What he writes is more important than who he is. I found his explanation for his blog to be cogent, truthful and informative. Perhaps you will concur. Maybe his observations will inspire contemplation and elicit a comment or two from you!

I also enjoyed this post. Yes, it's dicey. Yes, it sets even my teeth on edge. (And I'm not a member of the LDS Church.) I love the Brethren as much as anyone...and I positively melt whenever Jeffrey R. Holland speaks.

But I concur with Anonymous Bishop: the Doctrine of Christ is being supplanted with the philosophies of men, mingled with scripture.

What is that doctrine, you ask?

It's not my intent (with this post) to lay out that doctrine. But, if the scriptures are to be believed, it culminates with being reconciled to Jesus Christ personally, in this life, in our flesh. It means hearing His voicecoming unto Him, recognizing and being recognized by Him and being redeemed by Him from the fall.

Nothing less.

If any man preaches another gospel, or another Jesus, and receives a different spirit, let him be accursed. (2 Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:8-9.)


  1. Will,

    Your previous post was pretty good. :)

  2. I thought you'd like it...since you "wrote" it!

  3. Will,
    You have efficiently and very effectively summarized what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is supposed to be. It is not about wearing a white shirt on Sunday. It not about following any man, not even a prophet. It is not even about being a really, really nice guy and never saying anything stronger than "dang" or drinking anything stronger than root beer. It is about COMING UNTO JESUS CHRIST BEFORE WE LEAVE THIS LIFE. So says Nephi. So says the Holy Ghost. So says Jesus Himself (you know...that part where He says over and over and over again in the scriptures..."Come unto me").
    Thanks for making the point.
