  • Halloween (Guardians of an Altar Youth Discussion)
    Halloween (Guardians of an Altar Youth Discussion) Recording from October 23, 2015 discussion. We feel it is important to discuss the true nature of Halloween and the duty we have as Christians with access to the Priesthood, to combat the literal forces of Lucifer. This life is a battleground, NOT a playground. This sobering topic cannot be discussed in fear, discouragement or intimidation. We must remember that the Lord’s power is greater than even the overwhelming strength of satanic forces. Halloween: Trick or Treat: http://www.zionvision.com/movies/ziontube/halloween-trick-or-treat/ This film exposes the current events and rituals that occur leading up to and on Halloween. NOTE: If you are in your younger teens, you may want your parents to preview the video first and decide whether they would like you to watch the film or just discuss the content with you. Satan & the Occult FAQ compilation of statements from Presidents of the Church: http://www.josephsmithforum.org/research/faqs/satan-the-occult/ Complimentary resources for additional study: (Note: These are optional and included for those who want to explore the topic further.)

  • Communist Christian Persecution (Youth Discussion)
    Communist Christian Persecution (Youth Discussion) Recording from September 11, 2015 discussion. We received permission to upload, share and discuss the movie, The Printing. The Printing tells the story of faithful Christians in Soviet Russia who continued to print and smuggle Bibles in spite of being relentlessly hunted, imprisoned, tortured and killed. Would you be willing and able to lay down your life, if necessary, for the faith? Are you willing to lose your worldly life (vices, popularity or conformity to social norms) for the Gospel? We also discussed the first four chapters of The Heavenly Man. The Heavenly Man is the autobiography of one prominent leader in the underground Chinese house church movement. Did you know there are millions of dedicated Christians in Communist China who risk everything for the sake of their faith? In spite of the book recounting the horrific tortures and brutal persecutions, the book is an uplifting, inspiring account of miracles and deliverance.

  • Believing Christ: Salvation & Grace (Youth Discussion)
    Believing Christ: Salvation & Grace (Youth Discussion) LDS youth review the book Believing Christ by Steven E. Robinson and discussing true doctrine on salvation, grace, perfection and so forth. The “theme quote” for this discussion was the following statement made by the Prophet Joseph Smith: “Our heavenly Father is more liberal in His views, and boundless in His mercies and blessings, than we are ready to believe or receive; and, at the same time, is more terrible to the workers of iniquity, more awful in the executions of His punishments, and more ready to detect every false way, than we are apt to suppose Him to be.” (History of the Church, Vol. 5, p.134-136, See also “The Letter of the Prophet, Joseph Smith to Miss Nancy Rigdon,” Joseph Smith Collection, LDS archives) Visit http://www.GuardiansofanAltar.org to learn more! See discussion material here: http://www.guardiansofanaltar.org/forums/topic/january-22nd-2016-believing-christ/ Is the Parable of the Bicycle accurate? Why or why not? Will our good and evil deeds be weighed in the balance at the Judgment? Will the Lord reward us according to our merits? Can imperfect people be saved and allowed to dwell in the presence of God? What does it mean to become “one” with God? How is Christ “one” with the Father? How is the truth different than advocated by Believing Christ? When the Lord commands us to be perfect, is that an “impossible commandment”?

  • Sanctity of Life/Abortion/Birth-Control (Youth Discussion)
    Sanctity of Life/Abortion/Birth-Control (Youth Discussion) Recording from June 26, 2015 discussion. We live in a culture that greatly devalues children. As one man said, “The Bible calls debt a curse and children a blessing. But in our culture we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture.” This discussion centered the motion picture, Come What May and statements from presidents of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) on abortion, birth-control, modern family planning methods and the sanctity of life.
