Re: How Do Near-Death Experiences Help the Mopologists?

NDE = blathering superstition. I'm not superstitious. Maybe a little stitious. But not enough to believe NDE crap of any sort. If it isn't supported by science (meaning, something more than anecdotes about individual experiences) then it is horsecrap. For this type of stuff, the law would require m...

Re: Gerrit Gong misleads single people at Conference

But you will go in as a servant in one of the lower orders within the Celestial Kingdom and participate in celestial glory but will not be exalted among the gods in the highest degree of celestial glory. You get to be a servant but not a god. Was this originally taught in order to promote polygamy?...

Re: New Church Logo of Jesus in a Bell Jar?

It seems reasonable to suggest that Latter-day Saints in 30 or 40 years time will look back at this era as a time when Heavenly Father wasn't able to influence his prophet (Nelson) in a meaningful way because the man was too interested in worldly things and making appearances for appearances sake. T...

Re: Gerrit Gong misleads single people at Conference

Do celestial women get a say? :mrgreen: It seems that the only women in heaven that have any say are the ones that are exalted in the highest celestial level. The less fortunate sisters in the lower celestial realm and those poor unfortunate sisters in the lower kingdoms will not have vaginas becau...

Faith in the Book of Mormon?

Having faith that Nephi and his little band of followers built a temple after the manner of Solomon’s is faith in something that cannot be substantiated in the least. In other words, faith in Nephi’s temple is not good religion because it’s simply not true. It’s believing and hoping in something one...

I testify

I think it’s perfectly fair to say that as Smith dictated his story to Cowdery he sensed a little uneasiness about including the bit about building the LORD’S temple so early in his story when the Nephites were just getting started. I think Smith was somewhat uncomfortable about including this into ...

Second Class Men

Brethren cannot serve Heavenly Father as temple sealers if they've been divorced.

They're not worthy. Marital status is everything.

Smith was uneasy

I can understand Smith’s apprehension in discussing anything to have to do with the physical construction of the magnificent first temple built by King David’s son, Solomon. How does someone in the 19th century even begin to discuss these affairs unless they are very learned about the historical ori...

Re: How Do Near-Death Experiences Help the Mopologists?

I've studied NDEs for many years and have learned a lot by reading the testimonials of those who have shared their experiences on the Internet. There is a wide array of NDE content available out there and it seems much of it is pretty convoluted and and rather far-out but there is some really good m...
