comment Did God promise to appoint prophets in each generation?
I can see what you mean, but different denominations will interpret such passages differently... anyway, I vote to reopen.

comment What is meant by hot drinks in section 89 of the doctrine and covenant?
To clarify, caffeine is not specifically mentioned in any LDS scripture or official teachings, as far as I know. Some choose to consume it, others don't.

comment What is the reason and meaning of the symbols on the garments worn by Temple-worthy LDS members?
Please see this from the LDS Church; it's much more pragmatic than most of the answers here: mormonnewsroom.org/article/temple-garments

@user3127174 Your edits have vastly improved this answer. Good work.

comment What has the LDS Church (Mormons) historically taught about the Curse of Cain and dark skin?
@user3127174 Actually the reasons behind the Priesthood restrictions were never revealed (that I could ever find). Any reasons trying to explain why is merely speculation, as they don't come from official declarations or modern revelation like General Conferences.

comment LDS Church and Genealogy Research (What is the connection?)
... and just last week I attended a small presentation about the technology behind FamilySearch by the senior VP of FamilySearch, Craig Miller. He mentioned the connection between Ancestry.com and FamilySearch. I know I'm beating a dead horse, but it was very clear that the two organizations are separate (but are they do cooperate to some extent on agreed terms).

Thanks for contributing! I think you're the first currently-serving LDS missionary we've seen on this site.

Wow, well your thorough research has more than earned my upvote now. This is perhaps the most relevant answer at this point.

@FMS The answer isn't missing anything (since all the question can make us do is speculate anyway), in fact the first part of the answer is good; but the last part of the answer starting with "It does appear..." leads readers to the wrong answer. None of the official documents show that the individuals who followed those creeds at the time were sentenced to an everlasting hell. The unofficial ones, well, they are opinion anyway.

Of course that's not what I'm suggesting. And no, this question asks if the Catholic church holds that opinion, then asks for official LDS Church documents/sources to back it up. Your post does not directly answer either question, and it's already heading down the road of an incorrect answer. The most correct, reliable, and least speculative answer that this question has so far without the actual author of that passage being here was posted by @staples.

This question is tagged lds and asks for official LDS sources, so the limitation is not improper. The asker is looking for an LDS perspective to back up the accusation found in another document.

Did you read the linked answer? Books written by or about church leaders aren't necessarily Church teaching. Church teaching comes from the canon of scripture, general conference, or official statements and proclamations. Anyone can write a book with their opinions, but official sources are typically endorsed by the Church. Even so, this isn't about Bruce McConkie, it's about using reliable sources that directly answer the question, not opinions that can be widely misunderstood out of context.

The original question asks for which "official LDS resource/resources do they suppose this statement is founded" and 10 of the 12 quotes are not official LDS resources. So as it stands, this answer does not answer the question. This other answer may help clarify where you can find official LDS teaching.

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
This answer makes too many harsh assumptions. For example (from emphasis in the post) assuming that "two churches only" means that one of them goes to an eternal hell (an LDS doctrine frequently misunderstood) and the other one doesn't is an oversimplification of the doctrine of salvation, which is about people, not churches. Further, Mormon Doctrine is not an official exposé on the doctrines of the LDS Church. Thus, all the quotes in the last part of the answer, are people's opinions, not necessarily the teaching of the LDS Church.

Quite frankly, the phrase "used to teach with some vehemence that Christians were doomed to hell" is wildly extrapolated from a much tamer doctrine.
