In my opinion, the vast majority of the true foundational doctrines of the kingdom that came forth from the scriptures of the Latter day Saint restoration have been corrupted or completely discarded.
Additionally, new heretical precepts of men have been introduced into the church as binding doctrine. It is incredible that within four generations the doctrinal foundation that was initially established during Joseph Smith’s ministry has been compromised.
One of the many problems with the false narratives that the institutional church teaches is that is skews a person’s ability to accurately interpret scripture, prophecy and church history. False doctrine is one of the great stumbling blocks of the Latter day Saints that prevents them from gaining greater light.
One day while driving in the car, Mrs Watcher and I began creating a list of the false doctrines that we have identified over the years during our study of the scriptures. We came up with about 50 in about an hour of brainstorming. My guess is that there are easily over 200 significant false teachings that are currently being taught in the modern church.
I believe one of the most important things we can do in our scripture study to prepare ourselves to receive the light of the final restoration when it shines forth, is to identify the false doctrines and search out the true doctrines of the kingdom.
Within a week or two I will be doing a series in which many of the major false doctrines will be identified and expose by the holy word of God. If you have identified false doctrines during your gospel study that you think need to be exposed, please send me an email and I will include them in my series. onewhoiswatching [at] gmail dot com.
BTW, Episode 24 of the Ironrodpodcast has been posted. Searcher and MD and I had a lively discussion about this topic. I think you will enjoy listening to it.
