Re: New Mormon Doctrine - the church is identical to the Savior

In short, to equate human leaders with God is a dangerous, fascistic thing to promote. There is that risk. But then on the other hand we have Amos 3:7. But what about the centuries and centuries of the so-called Great Apostasy when God could do nothing because he had no prophets to reveal anything ...

Re: Scott Gordon Attacks Tyler Livingston Over CES Letter

Yes, a mod did it. Of that you can be sure. Yeah, well, I don't like it. I think this needs to be changed. It isn't cool to single out posters in such a way. I'm sure it will get corrected right away as soon as a mod hears about it. I agree. It was a bit of a cheap shot but maybe it's some kind of ...

Re: Scott Gordon Attacks Tyler Livingston Over CES Letter

I suppose the sky is the limit. But it’s not JUST church history issues, science and religion, etc. It can be other stuff. That sounds reasonable. Let's appeal to Wikipedia Ex-Mormon Reasons for leaving Most ex-Mormons leave Mormonism and the LDS Church because specific intellectual or spiritual re...

My point was that Scott Gordon may have had something else in mind other that what scratch was thinking.

What was Doctor Scratch thinking?

Do tell? What was it that was on Doctor Scratch's mind that he did not say? Was he not simply asking what might be on Scott Gordon's mind?

They just want to sin. That's why they leave, sure. This trope has been around a long time, since the founding. One wonders whether Joseph Smith got that from his magic rock?

He got it from porking girls behind the barn...

Re: Scott Gordon Attacks Tyler Livingston Over CES Letter

I’m not now nor ever have been a fraud. An example of fraud is when the nose of Anubis was hacked out of the lead plate and the head reshaped in order to convert a god into a slave. That's fraud, wouldn't you say? I sure would. And I would hope that honest Mormons would as well. But I question: Is ...

Re: Backyard Professor Expounds on How the Church Guilts its Members

Both you Shulem and Kerry stayed with the church quite a while and defended it with passion. Holding on to the positive in the church? Personal conviction ? natural vigorous curiosity? beating back the guilt? Some of all of these? Did heavy handed guilt push you to stay longer than you would have o...

Re: New evidence Isaiah 29 - The Sealed Book - is a fake prophecy Invented by Joseph Smith

Prior to the invention and announcement of gold plates, I believe some of Joseph's favorite Old Testament verses which he likened to himself is expressed in Isaiah as a marvelous work and a wonder. He planned to use this supposed prophecy BEFORE he ever dictated a single word to Martin Harris and Ol...
