Christ's definition of his Church
"And now behold, according to their faith in their prayers will I bring this part of my gospel to the knowledge of my people. Behold, I do not bring it to destroy that which they have received, but to build it up, and for this cause have I said, If this generation harden not their hearts, I will establish my church among them. Now I do not say this to destroy my church, but I say this to build up my church. Therefore whosoever belongeth to my church need not fear, for such shall inherit the kingdom of heaven, but it is they which do not fear me, neither keep my commandments, but buildeth up churches unto themselves to get gain, yea, and all those that do wickedly and buildeth up the kingdom of the devil. Yea, verily, verily I say unto you it is they that I will disturb and cause to tremble and shake to the center.
Behold, I am Jesus Christ the Son of God. I came unto my own and my own received me not. I am the light which shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not. I am he which said, Other sheep have I which are not of this fold, unto my disciples, and many there were which understood me not.
And I will shew unto this people that I had other sheep and that they were a branch of the house of Jacob, and I will bring to light these marvelous works which they did in my name. Yea, and I will also bring to light my gospel which was ministered unto them and behold, they shall not deny that which ye have received, but they shall build it up and shall bring to light the true points of my doctrine, yea, and the only doctrine which is in me.
And this I do that I may establish my gospel, that there may not be so much contention. Yea, Satan doth stir up the hearts of the people to contention concerning the points of my doctrine, and in these things they do err for they do arrest the scriptures and do not understand them. Therefore I will unfold unto them this great mystery, for behold, I will gather them as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings if they will not harden their hearts, yea, if they will come, they may and partake of the waters of life freely.
Behold, this is my doctrine: Whosoever repenteth and cometh unto me, the same is my church. Whosoever declareth more or less then this is not of me, but is against me, therefore he is not of my church.
Now behold, whosoever is of my church and endureth in my church to the end, him will I establish upon my rock and the gates of hell shall not prevail against them.
And now, remember the words of him who is the life and the light of the world, your Redeemer, your Lord and your God. Amen."

There are only Two Churches
“And I looked and beheld many nations and kingdoms. And the angel saith unto me: "What beholdest thou?"
And I said: "I behold many nations and kingdoms."
And he saith unto me: "These are the nations and kingdoms of the Gentiles."
And it came to pass that I saw among the nations of the Gentiles the formation of a great church; And the angel said unto me: "Behold the formation of a church which is most abominable above all other churches, Which slayeth the saints of God, yea, and tortureth them, and bindeth them down, and yoketh them with a yoke of iron, and bringeth them down into captivity."
And it came to pass that I beheld this great and abominable church; And I saw the devil, that he was the founder of it; And I also saw gold and silver and silks and scarlets and fine-twined linen and all manner of precious clothing; And I saw many harlots.
And the angel spake unto me, saying:
"Behold, the gold and the silver and the silks and the scarlets and the fine-twined linen and the precious clothing and the harlots are the desires of this great and abominable church; And also for the praise of the world do they destroy the saints of God and bring them down into captivity."
1 Nephi 3: 136-144, Non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition) http://www.restoredcovenant.org/RCE.asp?CAT=RCE&DOC=I%20Nephi&PAGE=43
And I, Nephi, beheld that the Gentiles which had gone out of captivity were delivered by the power of God out of the hands of all other nations; And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld that they did prosper in the land.
And I beheld a book, And it was carried forth among them; And the angel saith unto me:
"Knowest thou the meaning of the book?"
And I saith: "I know not."
And he saith: "Behold, it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew."
And I, Nephi, beheld it;
And he saith unto me: "The book which thou beholdest is a record of the Jews which contains the covenants of the Lord which He hath made unto the house of Israel, And it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; And it is a record like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many, Nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord which He hath made unto the house of Israel; Wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles."
And the angel of the Lord said unto me: "Thou hast beheld that the book proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew; And when it proceeded forth from the mouth of a Jew it contained the fullness of the gospel of the Lord, of whom the twelve apostles bore record, And they bore record according to the truth which is in the Lamb of God; Wherefore, these things go forth from the Jews in purity unto the Gentiles, according to the truth which is in God. And after that they go forth by the hand of the twelve apostles of the Lamb from the Jews unto the Gentiles, Behold, after this thou seest the formation of that great and abominable church, which is the most abominable of all other churches.
For behold, they have taken away from the gospel of the Lamb many parts which are plain and most precious, And also many covenants of the Lord have they taken away; And all this have they done that they might pervert the right ways of the Lord, that they might blind the eyes and harden the hearts of the children of men.
Wherefore, thou seest that after the book hath gone forth through the hands of the great and abominable church that there are many plain and most precious things taken away from the book, which is the book of the Lamb of God; [the Bible] And after that these plain and precious things were taken away, it goeth forth unto all the nations of the Gentiles; And after it goeth forth unto all the nations of the Gentiles-yea, even across the many waters which thou hast seen, with the Gentiles which have gone forth out of captivity-
And thou seest because of the many plain and precious things which have been taken out of the book- which were plain unto the understanding of the children of men according to the plainness which is in the Lamb of God- And because of these things which are taken away out of the gospel of the Lamb, An exceeding great many do stumble, yea, insomuch that Satan hath great power over them.
Nevertheless, thou beholdest that the Gentiles which have gone forth out of captivity and have been lifted up above by the power of God above all other nations upon the face of the land - Which is choice above all other lands [America], Which is the land which the Lord God hath covenanted with thy father that his seed should have for the land of their inheritance-
Wherefore, thou seest that the Lord God will not suffer that the Gentiles will utterly destroy the mixture of thy seed which is among thy brethren [American Indians]. Neither will He suffer that the Gentiles shall destroy the seed of thy brethren;
Neither will the Lord God suffer that the Gentiles shall forever remain in that state of awful woundedness, which thou beholdest that they are in because of the plain and most precious parts of the gospel of the Lamb which hath been kept back by that abominable church, whose formation thou hast seen.
1 Nephi 3:155-179, non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition)
And after that the Gentiles do stumble exceedingly because of the most plain and most precious parts of the gospel of the Lamb which hath been kept back by that abominable church which is the mother of harlots,' saith the Lamb, 'Wherefore, I will be merciful unto the Gentiles in that day,' saith the Lamb, 'Insomuch that I will bring forth unto them in Mine own power much of My gospel, which shall be plain and most precious,' saith the Lamb.
'For behold,' saith the Lamb, 'I will manifest Myself unto thy seed, that they shall write many things which I shall minister unto them, which shall be plain and precious; And after that thy seed shall be destroyed and dwindle in unbelief, and also the seed of thy brethren, Behold, these things shall be hid up to come forth unto the Gentiles by the gift and power of the Lamb; And in them shall be written My gospel,' saith the Lamb, 'and My rock and My salvation;
And blessed are they which shall seek to bring forth My Zion at that day, for they shall have the gift and the power of the Holy Ghost; And if they endure unto the end, they shall be lifted up at the last day and shall be saved in the everlasting kingdom of the Lamb;
Yea, whoso shall publish peace, that shall publish tidings of great joy, how beautiful upon the mountains shall they be!'"
And it came to pass that I beheld the remnant of the seed of my brethren, And also the book of the Lamb of God which had proceeded forth from the mouth of the Jew; And I beheld that it came forth from the Gentiles unto the remnant of the seed of my brethren;
And after it had come forth unto them, I beheld other books which came forth by the power of the Lamb from the Gentiles unto them, Unto the convincing of the Gentiles and the remnant of the seed of my brethren, And also to the Jews which were scattered upon all the face of the earth, That the records of the prophets and of the twelve apostles of the Lamb are true.
And the angel spake unto me, saying: "These last records which thou hast seen among the Gentiles shall establish the truth of the first, which are of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, And shall make known the plain and precious things which have been taken away from them; And shall make known to all kindreds, tongues and people that the Lamb of God is the Eternal Father and the Savior of the world, And that all men must come unto Him or they cannot be saved.”
1 Nephi 3:183-193 non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition) http://www.restoredcovenant.org/RCE.asp?CAT=RCE&DOC=I%20Nephi&PAGE=46
And it came to pass that when the angel had spoken these words, he saith unto me, "Remember thou the covenants of the Father unto the house of Israel?"
I saith unto him, "Yea."
And it came to pass that he saith unto me: "Look and behold that great and abominable church which is the mother of abominations, whose founder is the devil."
And he saith unto me: "Behold, there are save it be two churches- The one is the church of the Lamb of God, And the other is the church of the devil; Wherefore, whoso belongeth not to the church of the Lamb of God belongeth to that great church which is the mother of abominations,And she is the whore of all the earth."
1 Nephi 3:217-223, non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition)
The Only Thing Worse than Witchcraft is Priestcraft
And it came to pass that I looked and beheld the whore of all the earth; And she sat upon many waters; And she had dominion over all the earth among all nations, kindreds, tongues and people. And it came to pass that I beheld the church of the Lamb of God, And its numbers were few because of the wickedness and abominations of the whore which sat upon many waters;
Nevertheless, I beheld that the church of the Lamb, which were the saints of God, were also upon all the face of the earth, And their dominion upon the face of the earth was small because of the wickedness of the great whore which I saw.
And it came to pass that I beheld that the great mother of abominations did gather together in multitudes upon the face of all the earth among all the nations of the Gentiles to fight against the Lamb of God.
And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld the power of the Lamb of God, that it descended upon the saints of the church of the Lamb and upon the covenant people of the Lord which were scattered upon all the face of the earth; And they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory.
And it came to pass that I beheld that the wrath of God was poured out upon that great and abominable church insomuch that there were wars and rumors of wars mong all the nations and kindreds of the earth; And as there began to be wars and rumors of wars among all the nations which belonged to the mother of abominations, the angel spake unto me, saying:
"Behold, the wrath of God is upon the mother of harlots; And behold, thou seest all these things; And when the day cometh that the wrath of God is poured out upon the mother of harlots, which is the great and abominable church of all the earth, whose founder is the devil, Then at that day, the work of the Father shall commence in preparing the way for the fulfilling of His covenants which He hath made to His people which are of the house of Israel."
And it came to pass that the angel spake unto me, saying: "Look!"
And I looked and beheld a man; And he was dressed in a white robe; And the angel said unto me: "Behold one of the twelve apostles of the Lamb! Behold, he shall see and write the remainder of these things, Yea, and also many things which have been; And he shall also write concerning the end of the world; Wherefore, the things which he shall write are just and true; And behold, they are written in the book which thou beheld proceeding out of the mouth of the Jew; And at the time they proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, or at the time the book proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, The things which were written were plain and pure and most precious and easy to the understanding of all men.”
…And I, Nephi, heard and bore record that the name of the apostle of the Lamb was John, according to the word of the angel.
1 Nephi 3: 224-245, 251 non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition)
And the Gentiles are lifted up in the pride of their eyes and have stumbled because of the greatness of their stumbling block, that they have built up many churches; Nevertheless, they put down the power and the miracles of God, And preach up unto themselves their own wisdom and their own learning, that they may get gain and grind upon the face of the poor;
And there are many churches built up which causeth envyings and strifes and malice; And there are also secret combinations, even as in times of old, according to the combinations of the devil; For he is the founder of all these things, yea, the founder of murder and works of darkness, Yea, and he leadeth them by the neck with a flaxen cord until he bindeth them with his strong cords forever.
For behold, my beloved brethren, I say unto you that the Lord God worketh not in darkness; He doeth not anything, save it be for the benefit of the world, For He loveth the world, even that He layeth down His own life that He may draw all men unto Him...
... He saith: "Come unto Me, all ye ends of the earth, Buy milk and honey without money and without price."
2 Nephi 11: 90-96, 99 non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition)
He commandeth that there shall be no priestcrafts; For behold, priestcrafts are that men preach and set themselves up for a light unto the world, that they may get gain and praise of the world, But they seek not the welfare of Zion. Behold, the Lord hath forbidden this thing! Wherefore, the Lord God hath given a commandment that all men should have charity, which charity is love; And except they should have charity, they were nothing; Wherefore, if they should have charity, they would not suffer the laborer in Zion to perish.But the laborer in Zion shall labor for Zion, for if they labor for money they shall perish.
2 Nephi 11: 106 – 109, non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition)
All Churches Built up to Get Gain will be Destroyed
And it [the Book of Mormon] shall come in a day when it shall be said that miracles are done away. And it shall come even as if one should speak from the dead. And it shall come in a day when the blood of saints shall cry unto the Lord because of secret combinations [conspiracy] and the works of darkness. Yea, it shall come in a day when the power of God shall be denied and churches become defiled and shall be lifted up in the pride of their hearts, Yea, even in a day when leaders of churches and teachers in the pride of their hearts, even to the envying of them who belong to their church.
Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be heard of fires and tempests and vapors of smoke in foreign lands, And there shall also be heard of wars and rumors of wars and earthquakes in divers places. Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be great pollutions upon the face of the earth; There shall be murders and robbing and lying and deceivings and whoredoms and all manner of abominations, When there shall be many which will say, "Do this or do that and it mattereth not, for the Lord will uphold such at the last day";
But wo unto such for they are in the gall of bitterness and in the bonds of iniquity! Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be churches built up that shall say, "Come unto me and for your money you shall be forgiven of your sins."
O ye wicked and perverse and stiff-necked people! Why have ye built up churches unto yourselves to get gain?
Why have ye transfigured the holy word of God, that ye might bring damnation upon your souls? Behold! look ye unto the revelations of God; For behold, the time cometh at that day when all these things must be fulfilled. Behold, the Lord hath shown unto me great and marvelous things concerning that which must shortly come at that day when these things shall come forth among you.
Behold, I speak unto you as if ye were present, And yet ye are not; But behold, Jesus Christ hath shown you unto me and I know your doing, And I know that ye do walk in the pride of your hearts; And there are none, save a few only, which do not lift themselves up in the pride of their hearts, Unto the wearing of very fine apparel, Unto envying and strife and malice and persecutions and all manner of iniquity; And your churches, yea, even every one, have become polluted because of the pride of your hearts. For behold, ye do love money, and your substances, and your fine apparel, and the adorning of your churches, More than ye love the poor, and the needy, the sick, and the afflicted.
O ye pollutions! Ye hypocrites! Ye teachers which sell yourselves for that which will canker! Why have ye polluted the holy church of God? Why are ye ashamed to take upon you the name of Christ? Why do you not think that greater is the value of an endless happiness than that misery which never dies, because of the praise of the world?
Why do ye adorn yourselves with that which hath no life, And yet suffer the hungry, and the needy, and the naked, and the sick, and the afflicted, To pass by you and notice them not?
Yea, why do ye build up your secret abominations to get gain? And cause that widows should mourn before the Lord? And also orphans to mourn before the Lord? And also the blood of their fathers and their husbands to cry unto the Lord from the ground for vengeance upon your heads?
Behold, the sword of vengeance hangeth over you! And the time soon cometh that He avengeth the blood of the saints upon you, for He will not suffer their cries any longer.
And now I speak also concerning those who do not believe in Christ. Behold, will ye believe in the day of your visitation- behold, when the Lord shall come? Yea, even that great day when the earth shall be rolled together as a scroll and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Yea, in that great day when ye shall be brought to stand before the Lamb of God, then will ye say that there is no God?
Then will ye longer deny the Christ or can ye behold the Lamb of God? Do ye suppose that ye shall dwell with Him under a consciousness of your guilt? Do ye suppose that ye could be happy to dwell with that Holy Being when your souls are racked with a consciousness of your guilt, that ye have ever abused His laws?
Behold, I say unto you that ye would be more miserable to dwell with a holy and a just God under a consciousness of your filthiness before Him, than ye would to dwell with the damned souls in hell; For behold, when ye shall be brought to see your nakedness before God, and also the glory of God and the holiness of Jesus Christ, It will kindle a flame of unquenchable fire upon you.
O then ye unbelieving, turn ye unto the Lord!
Cry mightily unto the Father in the name of Jesus, that perhaps ye may be found spotless, pure, fair and white, Having been cleansed by the blood of the Lamb at that great and last day.
And again, I speak unto you who deny the revelations of God and say that they are done away, That there are no revelations, nor prophecies, nor gifts, nor healing, nor speaking with tongues, and the interpretation of tongues.
Behold I say unto you, he that denieth these things knoweth not the gospel of Christ; Yea, they have not read the scriptures; If so, they do not understand them; For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today and forever? And in Him there is no variableness, neither shadow of changing?
And now, if ye have imagined up unto yourselves a god which doth vary and in him there is shadow of changing, Then have ye imagined up unto yourselves a god which is not a God of miracles.
But behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, even the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; And it is that same God which created the heavens and the earth and all things that in them is.
Behold, He created Adam, And by Adam, came the fall of man, And because of the fall of man, came Jesus Christ, even the Father and the Son, And because of Jesus Christ, came the redemption of man, And because of the redemption of man, which came by Jesus Christ, they are brought back into the presence of the Lord.
Yea, this is wherein all men are redeemed because the death of Christ bringeth to pass the resurrection, Which bringeth to pass a redemption from an endless sleep, From which sleep all men shall be awakened by the power of God when the trump shall sound; And they shall come forth, both small and great, And all shall stand before His bar, being redeemed and loosed from this eternal band of death, Which death is a temporal death.
And then cometh the judgment of the Holy One upon them; And then cometh the time that he that is filthy shall be filthy still, And he that is righteous shall be righteous still; He that is happy shall be happy still; And he that is unhappy shall be unhappy still.
Behold, I say unto you that whoso believeth in Christ, doubting nothing, Whatsoever he shall ask the Father in the name of Christ, it shall be granted them; And this promise is unto all, even unto the ends of the earth.
Mormon 4: 34 -74, 84, non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition)
Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things - if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them - That ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men from the creation of Adam, even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, And ponder it in your hearts.
And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; And if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, havingt faith in Christ, And He will manifest the truth of it unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost;
And by the power of the Holy Ghost, ye may know the truth of all things; And whatsoever thing is good, is just and true; Wherefore, nothing that is good denieth the Christ, but acknowledgeth that He is. And ye may know that He is by the power of the Holy Ghost;
Wherefore, I would exhort you that ye deny not the power of God; For He worketh by power according to the faith of the children of men, the same today and tomorrow and forever.
Moroni 10: 3 – 7, non-denominational Book of Mormon (Restored Covenant Edition)
I used to live in Provo, Utah, I know from personal experience that it is a hotbed of satanism and trauma based mind control programming at the highest levels, and I don't just mean the L.D.S. Church, I also mean the United States of America (but that is another post for another day).
After the historic Provo Tabernacle was destroyed by the Lord (due to defilement) the leaders of the L.D.S. Church echoed the words of the builders of One World Trade Center (after the Twin Towers fell) as prophesied by the prophet, Isaiah:
"The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars."
They not only rebuilt, but this time they upgraded it from a tabernacle to a temple (with no mention of repentance), despite the message that Jesus left behind for all the world to see...
