Salt Lake City | LDS Tours in Cancun
The global headquarters for members belonging to the Church of the Latter-day Saints. A cultural center rich in history, thanks to the work of the people has become one of the most important cities in terms of industry to the economy of the United States.
The story of Salt Lake City begins in the year 1847, when Brigham Youg, the second president of The Church of Latter-day Saints, decided to install his religious community in the south-east of the Great Lake. Brigham Young did the same also who as president of the Mormon Church manages the necessary arrangements with the United States Congress to declare state to the territory now known as Utah. .
Among other things Salt Lake City is famous for the preservation of old buildings, such as the home of Brigham Youg, Deseret Village, with buildings from the nineteenth century, The Family History Library and especially in the downtown, the Temple of Salt Lake City. The most sacred temple for our church. This building was built in a very short period of time (40 years). Because of the beauty and history that is attracting many visitors to its doors, however, although it is possible for the public to know their gardens and surroundings, only church members are allowed access to internal facilities. .
“THE ONLY TRUE AND LIVING CHURCH”
By Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
Our first responsibility and our first objective is to testify of Jesus Christ to a world that is dying to know of His divine mission. In response to this great responsibility, I will talk about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as “the only true and living church.” In doing so, I know I’ll go against the mighty tide of what is called “politically correct”.
The opinion is fashionable these days are that all churches are true. Indeed, the idea that all churches are equal is the doctrine of Antichrist, which is reflected in the narrative of the Book of Mormon Korihor (see Alma 30). That story came to teach us an essential lesson for our time. .
A revelation to the Prophet Joseph Smith in 1831, shortly after the organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, had to do with those who had been given “power to establish this foundation of this church” . The Lord then referred to the Church as “the only true and living church upon the face of all the earth, with which I the Lord am well pleased” (D & C 1:30). .
Because of that statement of the Lord, we refer to this, His Church, our Church as the “only true church.” Sometimes we do it in a way that greatly offends those who belong to other churches that adhere to other philosophies. However, God has taught us nothing that should make us feel superior to others. Of course all churches and philosophies have some truth in them, some more than others. Surely God loves all His children, and certainly the plan of His gospel is for all His children, all in accordance with His own time. .
So what does it mean that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church? .
There are three characteristics: (1) the fullness of the doctrine, (2) the power of the priesthood and (3) the testimony of Jesus Christ to explain why God has said and why His servants argue that this is “the one true church and on the face of the whole earth.” .
The fullness of the doctrine
When Jesus was on earth, taught the fullness of His doctrine, which is the plan that Heavenly Father has established for the advancement of His children. Later, many of the truths of the gospel were lost to be modified by the principles or philosophies that then prevailed in the world where Christianity was preached, and by manipulation of the political leaders. In that loss of the fullness of truth we call Apostasy. .
Many religious denominations and philosophies that exist in today’s world have a greater or lesser extent, with truths that God revealed in the past, along with a mixture of philosophies or manipulation of men. We believe that most religious leaders and followers are sincere believers who love God and who understand and serve him as best they can. We are indebted to the men and women who kept alive the light of faith and learning through the centuries until today. We want every church to investigate and come from other churches or belief systems retain all the good things that have and come and see how we can increase understanding of truth and happiness in so far as to put you in practice. .
Since it was much that was lost in the Apostasy, it was necessary that the Lord restored the fullness of His doctrine. That began what we call the first vision of Joseph Smith. .
The authority of the priesthood had to restore those resurrected beings that had possessed during his earthly life. Priesthood authority, along with the keys necessary to run their operation, is in this church and nowhere else. .
The fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ begins with the certainty that we live as spirits before coming to this land, says that this mortal life has a purpose, teaches that our loftiest aspiration is to become like our heavenly parents. We achieve this by being worthy of the status and relations that are called glorified heavenly exaltation or eternal life, which granted us the power to perpetuate our family relationships throughout eternity. .
The doctrine of Jesus Christ, understood in its fullness, is the plan by which we can become what it is supposed that the children of God should be. This immaculate and perfect state is the result of a constant succession of agreements, orders and actions of the accumulation of right choices and constant repentance. “… This life is for men to prepare to meet God” (Alma 34:32). This is possible through the atonement of Jesus Christ and obedience to the laws and ordinances of His gospel. .
The restored gospel of Jesus Christ is all encompassing, universal, merciful and true. After the necessary experience of mortal life, all the sons and daughters of God will rise and go to a kingdom of glory even more wonderful than any mortal person can understand. With the exception of a few, even the most wicked finally go to a wonderful, albeit lower kingdom of glory. All that will happen thanks to the great love God has for His children, and all that is possible because of the atonement and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who “glorifies the Father, and saves all the works of their hands” (D & C76: 43). .
