    The fate of Judas Iscariot

    Hi Pam! Yep, it's me jumping to the defense of someone I don't know of. You'd think I would learn wouldn't you? I was only thinking about what I was reading on this one discussion, and not on other (previous) ones. I understood the scriptures he posted, and honestly didn't see anything troubling about his posts on this subject. Of course it was after only 2 hours of sleep, and upper body agony from helping push a stuck car out of snow ruts. Maybe I should reread the pages of posts and see what I missed........ after I am able to get a decent night's sleep. :-)

    The fate of Judas Iscariot

    I just called it as it appeared to me- it was just disturbing to me personally. Thank you for giving me your insight on the matter. And thank you @askandanswer you made my day!

    The fate of Judas Iscariot

    After reading numerous posts, and the different opinions, feelings, and statements vs scriptural facts; I just want to add this to the quarrels over who is right, who is wrong and who cares more..... We ALL have our own opinions on different things, different views, different speculations, and discussion is all good until one persons opinion is vilified because he has a different view of something, and then it's open season on that one person"s every opinion or statement. Debate is good, discussions are good, but not when it's the mentality of 'let's tear Rob Osborn apart on anything he says'. I don't get it- It just doesn't seem right. I was used to the older site and I haven't gotten all the bells and whistles figured out with this newer one, so I don't know how to move quotes around within my posting, and don't know how to do the blue highlight name thing- but I love the quote from Johnson Jones, and intend to copy it down and stick it in my scriptures. It's a great quote. Thank you Johnson Jones for sharing.

    Changing skin color

    I can't even tolerate the smell of kim chee. Oh my, now I'm a deplorable AND a racist pig! Couldn't I just eat some rice with kikkomann instead? :-) My two cents..... I was always under the assumption that the Lamanites were the fore runners to the First People/American Indians on the American continent.

    Are LGBT Activists Religious Bigots?

    I know we shouldn't dignify such hateful words, but it still hurts my feelings to be called a bigot, racist, etc, etc, etc because I have conservative values and voted for Trump. If I was called a bigot because I don't like or believe in same-sex marriage, or support the LGBT... agenda, than a bigot I will be and just shrug it off.

    Joy to the World!?

    "Joy to the world, the Lord is come;". sounds Christmas to me. "Let earth receive her King!" Sounds Christmas to me. "Let ev’ry heart prepare him room,". Ditto "And (Heaven) Saints and (nature) angels sing", ditto"And (Heaven) Saints and (nature) angels sing," dittoAnd (Heaven) Saints, and (nature) Saints and angels sing" ditto to the fourth. I understand the discussions about Christmas vs Second Coming. But my two cents is that the very first verse of the song is what I hear most often sang during the Christmas season. The Lord has been born! Let us receive Him..... our King! Let us all bring Him into our hearts and join Heaven and the entire world in singing our joy and love for Him! I will sing Joy to the World as a Christmas song, and will be happy to join Heaven, nature, saints and angels at His Second Coming too! :-)
  10. "Praise to the Man" should stay in the hymn book. We should honor the mortal man named Joseph Smith who was instrumental in bringing the Church of Jesus Christ back to the earth. There are songs of honor.... not worship..... honor.
  11. Just heard this on news- did a little checking - CDC and FDA have both asked that you do not eat ANY romaine lettuce until they have more info. Already 11 US states and Canada have problems. https://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2018/o157h7-11-18/index.html I don't want to see anyone get sick.... or worse.

    72 hour kits. Yes or no?

    I was reading about members of our Church in California who had to leave their houses in a matter of seconds, and lose their homes and everything in it in just minutes by the wild fires. Lost possessions, family memories, documents, wallets, and Temple Recommends. Someone, who lost everything in the fire, said if they kept important things in a 72 hour kit.... well, they could have grabbed it on the way out the door. I need to rethink things myself- my 72 hour kit is in the basement.
  13. People, people, PEOPLE! Upon reading so many posts of anger, aggravation, and intolerance of others opinions........ let me just say...... We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are members of our Church who are suffering with various afflictions in their lives...... and who is it that wants other members to bicker and tear apart? Hint..... it isn't God. Chill.
  14. Carlimac- my heart goes out to you and your son, thank you for sharing your story- it may help others who are living through the same thing. Addictions are so hard to understand for those who have not had to deal with an addiction themselves or have not had to deal with a loved one who is dealing with an addiction. My son-in-law found faith in God because of his addiction (drugs)- but it took 4 or 5 stints in rehab for him to be able to learn to deal. He knows how lucky he is- knowing that there are those who are not able to kick it. I have learned through life experiences how hard it is to deal with an addict, with addiction, and how hard it is on the family. I pray your son can regain his testimony.
  15. Several years ago, my ward had a RS luncheon where a speaker was a 16-17 year old young man from another ward who gave a very enlightening talk- about his addiction to porn that he faces everyday of his life. He started at 12 years old. Twelve! He had barely graduated from Church Primary when he started down that road! The young man got help to try and overcome his problem and said as with any other addiction it is a struggle daily. And he admitted that he was raised in a very God and Christ based, proper LDS home with both parents doing everything the right way....... but his interest in those things forbidden .... basically just drew him in. He said all it took was that first look. The whole point of his talk (that I got) was that even the best parent(s) in the world can't control the urges of their children, or everything sinful that child comes in contact with in childhood. We, as parents can only do the best we can do and pray that our children can fight their inner demons of temptation when that time comes, and make the right choices of turning away from that first look or taste of sin. Satan has made it so easy, has incorporated it into basically everything, and has followed the scriptures by enticing people into calling evil good, and good evil. And he has gone/going after the children, to destroy their innocence and keep them from doing what is right.
