• About Jared Kern

    This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but, the Latter-day Church of Christ, whose members are also known colloquially as Mormons, is the only true church of Jesus Christ. I strongly encourage you to join it through the waters of baptism, and continue on faithful in the gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ until the end of your days.


    Merry CHRISTmas

    At this Christmas time the words of Martha, the sister of Mary and Lazarus, are particularly moving and heartfelt. As recorded in the Gospel of John she said, “I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.” (John 11:24–27) His coming is the lynch pin, the crux,...

    But the Sparrow Still Falls

    by  • April 20, 2015 • Faith, Uncategorized, Zion • 0 Comments

    Tragedies abound. The inhumanity of men and women is broadcast continuously on the television, radio, and internet. Wars and rumors of wars (Mormon 8:30-31; D&C 45:26-27) are heard. Torture. Brutality. Violence. Horror. Pestilence. Famine. Sickness. Death. Where in all this unspeakable suffering is the presence of God? Where is any semblance of fair play...

    The Gospel of Hope

    by  • January 27, 2014 • Faith, Jesus Christ, Peace, Second Coming of Christ • 0 Comments

    The classic question, and favorite of armchair psychologists everywhere; “Is the glass half full or half empty?” The correct answer is supposed to yield insight into one’s outlook on life, one’s personality, one’s soul. The true answer is neither, none of the above. The glass is always, and precisely, 100% full. Half fluid, and...

    The Constitution of the United States

    by  • October 14, 2013 • Government • 0 Comments

    As Latter-day Christians, we believe the constitution of the United States was established by The Lord (D&C 101:77, 80). This does not, however, mean the constitution contains a fullness of the Lord’s views on government. While we believe the constitution was an inspired document, we also believe in continuing revelation. The heavens are not...

    Laman and Lemuel Syndrome

    by  • September 30, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    We all pontificate on the merits of Nephi’s actions and the skullduggery of his vile and lesser older brothers. Nephi was undoubtedly a great guy; he saw God (1 Nephi 11:27-33; 12:6; 2 Nephi 11:2-3; 31:17), spoke with the Lord (1 Nephi 2:19), ogled the mother of Christ (1 Nephi 11:14-15), and was not...

    The Sabbath Yardstick

    by  • July 1, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    We are commanded to remember the Sabbath day. The whole day, not just the Sabbath meeting. The Sabbath entails much more than just a few hours on Sunday. It is a day long event. How we observe and sanctify the Sabbath is a sign between the Lord and us of our sanctification by Him....

    Messengers of Peace

    by  • June 17, 2013 • Boy Scouts, Peace, Zion • 0 Comments

    The Boy Scout program is promoting a new “Messengers of Peace” initiative consisting of three dimensions of peace: personal (harmony, justice, and equality), community (opposition to violence or hostility), and peace between man and its environment (social and economic welfare, relationship with the environment). Consider these three aspects of peace. In today’s world of...
