Lorenzo Snow Manual Chapter 24, Reflections on the Mission of Jesus Christ

December 21, 2013

Well, here we are at the last chapter, this has been very interesting going right through this manual and has raised some great issues and discussions. Next year we will not be going right through the Joseph Fielding Smith manual, but rather just going through a few that stand out. This last chapter brings nothing… Read More ›

Lorenzo Snow Manual review, Chapter 23, The Prophet Joseph Smith by Stephen Livings

The chapter I have been assigned to review is something of a gift really.  The title and content of this chapter go to the heart of what most mainstream Christians would say is one of their main bones of contention when addressing the beliefs and claims of Mormonism, namely the LDS church’s emphasis on Joseph… Read More ›

Lorenzo Snow Manual review, Chapter 22, Doing Good to Others. by Vicky Gilpin

  “Cultivate a spirit of charity; be ready to do for others more than you would expect from them if circumstances were reversed.” Obviously doing good to others is a good and Godly principle. LDS, like main stream Christians seek to follow this biblical principle of Charity and service, loving your neighbour, treating others as… Read More ›


Lorenzo Snow–21 Loving God More Than we Love the World, by Mike Thomas

Most of this chapter comprises extracts from a sermon Lorenzo Snow delivered just after he had been called as president of the Quorum of the Twelve in April 1889. That date, that period, is significant because many of the conditions that prevailed some fifty years earlier were again being experienced by the Mormon Church. In… Read More ›

Review of Teachings of Lorenzo Snow chapter 20: The Kingdom of God Moves Forward

For this review I am going to focus on the part of the chapter entitled Teachings of Lorenzo Snow and not look at the beginning of the chapter entitled From the Life of Lorenzo Snow.  I have chosen to do this for two reasons: firstly, I feel that my role in writing this post is… Read More ›

Lorenzo Snow Manual, Chapter 19 – Missionary Work – ‘To Reach Every Human Heart’, by Gary Carter

Nearly every religion on the earth seeks to add numbers to its flocks. Of the major religions that can be considered ‘global’, only Hinduism does not have proselytizing at its core. It is therefore no surprise that missionary activities are considered of great importance to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as seen… Read More ›

Lorenzo Snow–18 Church Leadership and Selfless Service, by Mike Thomas

This month’s chapter is hard to critique and that is no bad thing. There is no spite in what we are doing here, we don’t find fault for the sake of it. The truth is the truth whoever speaks it and a call to selfless service is no bad thing. There is much here to… Read More ›

Teachings of Lorenzo Snow Manual, Chapter 17 by Gary Carter

Chapter 17 – Priesthood – ‘for the Salvation of the Human Family’   As we approach the end of the book, we have seen many trends in Snow’s theology such as specific Mormon theology being wrapped around orthodox Christian theology. This can be seen in our discussions on salvation by works and the Trinity. This… Read More ›

Teachings of Lorenzo Snow Manual, Chapter 16 by Gary Carter

Chapter 16 – That We May Become One This chapter is a perfect example of how deep we have to go sometimes to distinguish the differences between Christianity and Mormonism. Snow is stressing the need for unity within the Saints and there should be no conflict between them. As a theme and a rule for… Read More ›


Lorenzo Snow Manual Chapter 15 Faithful, Energetic Service in the Kingdom of God, by Vicky Gilpin

The main question I want to look at in this post is; What did Jesus die for? I’m particularly picking up on the following statements from Snow p186 of this book. When the Lord called Abraham He made him certain promises concerning the glory that should come upon him and his posterity, and in these… Read More ›
