Did They Really Say That?!?

I know just as well what to teach this people and just what to say to them and what to do in order to bring them into the celestial kingdom, as I know the road to my office.  It is just as plain and easy.  The Lord is in our midst.  He teaches the people continually.  I have never yet preached a sermon and sent it out to the children of men, that they may not call Scripture.  Let me have the privilege of correcting a sermon, and it is as good Scripture as they deserve.

Brigham Young, January 2, 1870, Journal of Discourses 13:95

So, Brigham Young is still considered a prophet of the LDS, and he stated that his sermons are the same as Scripture, and yet the LDS now denies some of his teachings?!?!?  How can they justify that?  How can they say the Young was wrong about “blood atonement,” e.g.?

I think because some of his teachings (scripture) are so far out - way too many Mormons are getting the broader picture that this guy was a fraud - just like Joseph Smith.... so - you deny and hope to hold on to some of the followers....

I have read it, and I know that the LDS teaches that the two sticks are Bible and the BOM. AH, but how about we look at the context and see what the BIBLE says the two sticks are beginning with the immediate context at vs. 15. But first realize that the chapter is discussing the divided kingdom of Israel and Judah and that the Lord was going to bring them back into one nation.

15 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.

The passage states very clearly that the sticks are used as object lessons of two separated kingdoms which will be put together as ONE stick - one nation again. All the contortions of the LDS false teachings making these sticks into books is a horrible abuse of the passage and totally misrepresents the lesson taught, just so the LDS can try to support their false teachings about the BOM.
