Utah quake knocks trumpet from Moroni statue's hand at Salt Lake Mormon temple
A 5.7-magnitude earthquake shook Utah Wednesday morning shortly after 7 a.m., dislodging the trumpet from the hand of the statue of the angel Moroni sitting atop the iconic Mormon temple in its capital city.
Wednesday's quake, the largest since 1992 when a magnitude 5.9 temblor struck the St. George area of the western state, was centered approximately 10 miles of Salt Lake City, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
A series of aftershocks transpired in the minutes that followed ranging from 2.5 to 3.9 on the Richter scale and are to be likely to continue throughout the day, the Utah Division of Emergency Management said. By 9:25 a.m. the USGS had recorded 27 earthquakes and aftershocks....
Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Isaiah 42:8 I am the LORD: that [is] my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
2 Kings 18:4 He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.
Isaiah 42:8 I [am] the LORD: that [is] my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Habakkuk 2:18 What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols? 19 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it [is] laid over with gold and silver, and [there is] no breath at all in the midst of it.
Well , the Lord does use symbolic examples to get his point across. Not withstanding, a candle stick is removed from many denominations. But as for a anti christ religion, such as the LDS church, it would be wonderful if the temple collapsed.
As those who are deceived by another gospel message, through another Jesus, as the Godhead. Isnâ€™t what the Bible teaches, = Bad recipe for one who is embracing the false teachings of The Restored Gospel Joesph Smith tatught!!
2 Cor 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. & no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
A great reminder why to share truth in love, that the Church didnâ€™t fall into apostasy, like Joseph Smith taught & rescued through Him!
Mat 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, & on this rock I will build My church, & the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
