  1. I don't think it was stupid, but I guess everybody is entitled to their opinion.
  2. Because if they would have done that, they would have done it way before 1929.
  3. Well if GOD the Father and his Son Jesus Christ have long hair and beards in their Celestial form then why is it inappropriate for Temple workers to have long hair and beards or the missionaries?
  4. Wow! Well God bless her. She truly is a courageous woman.
  5. I do not understand why tithing seems to be so complicated for some members of the Church. It does not matter what other people's opinions are on how one should pay their tithing. The only opionon that matters is God's opinion. And God has made it very clear on how He wants his people to pay their tithing, and it is called Doctrine and Convenants Sec 119. 1 Verily, thus saith the Lord, I require all their surplus property to be put into the hands of the bishop of my church in Zion, 2 For the building of mine house, and for the laying of the foundation of Zion and for the priesthood, and for the debts of the Presidency of my Church. 3 And this shall be the beginning of the tithing of my people. 4 And after that, those who have thus been tithed shall pay one-tenth of all their interest annually; and this shall be a standing law unto them forever, for my holy priesthood, saith the Lord. 5 Verily I say unto you, it shall come to pass that all those who gather unto the land of a Zion shall be tithed of their surplus properties, and shall observe this law, or they shall not be found worthy to abide among you. 6 And I say unto you, if my people observe not this law, to keep it holy, and by this law sanctify the land of Zion unto me, that my statutes and my judgments may be kept thereon, that it may be most holy, behold, verily I say unto you, it shall not be a land of a Zion unto you. 7 And this shall be an sample unto all the stakes of Zion. Even so. Amen. If you are not paying tithing according to God's standing law then you are paying your tithing incorrectly. It is that simple. Or maybe I am the one not understanding Sec 119? Maybe tithing is about net vs gross and not on what I recevie. Maybe you can pay your tithing any time you want and not annually? When people read D&C Sec 119, do the words have some double meaning that I do not know about?
  6. I am thankful that we have a GOD that is holy and righteous, and that he gave his only begotten son Jesus Christ that through him we might be saved. I am thankful for the Temples, Churches, and Missionaries that spread the gospel and do good things throughout the world. I am thankful for the family I belong to. I am thankful that I have a job.
  7. Does Church leadership have bodyguards? If so, how does one become one? Does the Church train their own, or are these people just LDS by faith and bodyguards by profession. I have heard Howard Hughes had LDS bodyguards, so I would guess to say there are such people.
  8. Patriot or Traitor? | Ignatius Piazza | Front Sight Blog God provides that in this land of liberty, our political allegiance shall not run to individuals no matter how great or how small they may be. Under his plan, our allegiance and the only allegiance we owe as citizens of the United States, runs to our inspired Constitution which God himself set up President J. Reuben Clark, Jr. Men who are wise, good, and honest, who will uphold the Constitution of the United States in the tradition of the founding fathers, must be sought for diligently. This is our hope to restore government to its rightful role. President Ezra Taft Benson
  9. Thank you for your response. For awhile, I have been living with so much doubt and uncertainty to how I and my loved ones would face these times which I believe many of us will see. Recently my head has been filled with so many thoughts of failure, betrayal, and cowardice that it has me really depressed. So many fears of GOD not being with me to help strengthen me to face and endure Great Tribulation has me worried even though according to scripture I know I should not. I know my Father in Heaven and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ loves us. I also know that scum satan hates us and will do any thing he can to turn us away from GOD.
  10. How about these questions? What is to happen to the Church during the reign of the anti-christ? How are the Saints to survive during this period of time? I assume many of us will die for refusing the number of the beast. Will there be a place for the people to flee to for safety? After watching these links it seems the last days are now the last seconds.
  11. I am going to have to agree with GlockGirl on this one. And just because this link I found is from the NRA, does not mean that all of the citizens in the video are on the NRA payroll.
  12. I agree for the most part, but in the Word of Wisdom there is no absolute prohibition on alcohol consumption. If I remember correctly, it says no strong drink and wine except for wine during sacrament and mild barley drinks. I am still trying to figure out why most members of the church use the Word of Wisdom as the reason why for absolutely no alcohol consumption? Doctrine and Covenants 89
  13. The Word of Wisdom was being discussed by me and a few others in the chat sometime earlier, I and I assume some others, were a little confused about it's details. I think I've found something which helps to sum it up. The revelation given to the Prophet Joseph Smith uses the following words to define and advise against the use of harmful substances and beverages: "Strong drinks (meaning alcoholic or other harmful beverages) are not for the belly." (Doctrine and Covenants 89:7) "Tobacco is not for the body...and is not good for man." (Doctrine and Covenants 89:8) "Hot drinks [meaning black tea and coffee] are not for the body." (Doctrine and Covenants 89:9) The Word of Wisdom not only admonishes against the use of harmful substances, but it also describes those foods which are good for man: "All wholesome herbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man— "Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; "Flesh … of beasts and of the fowls of the air...are to be used sparingly; "All grain is ordained for the use of be the staff of life... "All grain is good for the food of man; as also the fruit of the vine." (Doctrine and Covenants 89:10–12, 14, 16) The Word of Wisdom is a law and a principle with promise. When men and women obey the provisions of the law, they receive the blessings associated with those provisions. However, if they do not obey, there will be both temporal and spiritual consequences. Source: Word of Wisdom - Mormonism, The Mormon Church, Beliefs, & Religion - MormonWiki I believe for the most part you are correct Brenton, but what about verses 5 & 6? 5 That inasmuch as any man drinketh wine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the sight of your Father, only in assembling yourselves together to offer up your sacraments before him. 6 And, behold, this should be wine, yea, pure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make. It seems in these verses, GOD as allowed the use of alcoholic wine for the use of Sacraments. Also I am curious about what other LDS think about this verse from the WOW? 17 Nevertheless, wheat for man, and corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls and for swine, and for all beasts of the field, and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drinks, as also other grain. Barley for mild drinks would mean beer. It could not mean just barley and water mixed together because then it would cease to be a mild drink since there is nothing in the barley and water to make the drink mild.
