BOUNTIFUL: even until they came to the land which they called Bountiful. And it bordered upon the land which they called Desolation (borders of the land Bountiful; and Amalickiah did pitch his tents in the borders on the beach by the seashore) (fortify the land Bountiful, and secure the narrow pass...

Re: First Presidency Announces Annual ‘Tithing Declaration’

I imagine the new tithing declaration policy is designed go give members more time to get their finances in order and meet their tithing obligation by year end. So that would mean the matter remains open even after the declaration is made but a final follow-up would take place at year end. More time...

Re: First Presidency Announces Annual ‘Tithing Declaration’

How about an annual "honesty with my fellow men" declaration? That could interfere with a business-oriented church. Which is the whole point of this thread; I suggests the Church is primarily interested in finding new ways to motivate the members in order to increase funds for the Church. It would ...

Re: Book of Mormon Geography

So, in this passage, these are the major seas, not local seas. It is the only mention of a “sea north.” I don’t see this feature in your model Your land northward has no east sea. Dan, It would ne nice if you would take the time to read those long threads and understand that Joseph Smith was workin...

Re: Creepy Jesus

Why haven’t you come over to the other side? If you haven’t already, that is. Well that's nice of you to suggest but I have no interest in Christianity as expressed in the bible and have a very unfavorable attitude towards blood atonement and sacrifice whether it be that of man or animals. I'm afra...

Re: Creepy Jesus

And I thought our being saved by faith was a process of sharing Jesus's life of living by faith. You're talking about the Christian religion. I'm talking about Mormonism run by men. Mormonism teaches you are saved by works after all you can do. Mormon faith cannot save you unless it's accompanied b...

Re: Creepy Jesus

shulem, why the choice of this rather unpleasant photograph? Mother Mary had to change his diapers or what ever they called those things in those days. Is that creepy? I am not sure just what is pointed to as creepy. Is this a taste or style sort of judgement? Tramping about Israel of foot in spark...

What you are saying there sounds just like Jesus period. Not Mormon Jesus in particular, but Christian Jesus.

So, what's your point?

My point is that Christian Jesus is creepy enough but Mormon Jesus is even creepier!

Wouldn't you agree?
