About the art on this site

... and a QUIZ



This site has over 200 illustrated pages. You are free to use almost any of the pictures (as long as your use is pro-LDS). The old-style line drawings on this site are from a genuinely copyright free source. The maps and charts are original - use them too!

To grab an image (in Windoze), just right click on the picture and select "save image" or "save as". If you think this is just a sneaky way to make you look at the whole web site - you're right!

The cartoon style images are not listed - they come from "DJ's best LDS clip art" (another Brit). If you like them, visit his page!

The photographs in some pages uploaded since December 1999 are adapted (sometimes beyond recognition!) from Romtech's "PrintIt" CD-ROM. No mention was made of restrictions on use, and I recognise some that are apparently public domain. If anyone recognizes any as being copyrighted, please contact me!

The True Gate

Major topics on these pages start with with medieval gateways or windows. This is to symbolize the great choice each of us must make.

The traditional churches have left us some magnificent and beautiful architecture, dedicated to the dead prophets - to Peter, or Paul, or John (see Matthew 23:29-30). They offer us a choice. Do we prefer the living prophets or the dead? Which is the true gate?

Jesus Christ, the light of the world, offers the true gate. Babylon, the woman who was drunk with the blood of the saints (Revelation 17:5-7), also claims to be the gate. The name Babylon comes from Bab-El, meaning "gate of God"

As a missionary (Dundee, Scotland, 1987), I once met a leader of a "Christian" group called the "Gate fellowship". He saw it as his job to oppose the Latter-day Saints. I wondered to myself - "which gate does he represent?" When Jesus offered the true gate, he warned that only a few would find it. Many would have eaten at the Lord's table and heard his words, and think they are saved, but they are not (see Luke 13:23-30).

If we really want to be saved, we must "strive to enter in at the strait gate" - along with all the prophets (Luke 13:28).

(N.B. the true gate is the gate out of hell and into heaven - and the true church holds the keys. This is discussed on the page about the New Testament.)
