  1. For anyone that might be interested. Here is the final product. I had so much help from one of our members. I don't even know how to thank him enough. I don't want to give out his username without his permission but we were up past midnight last night working on it. Well he was working on it as I watched him.
  2. I had no idea. I don't even remember the last time I went to a movie.
  3. Ahhhh I wouldn't have guessed that. I haven't seen any of those movies nor do I have a desire to.
  4. Well you have more than I do.
  5. So can we know what movie caused this conversation? I'm curious now.
  6. But yet we know that there are certain things that have been prophesied to happen before He comes again.
  7. Why should we avoid the one out of curiosity?
  8. We sure are seeing that right now aren't we?
  9. This is from my favorite reference that I use regarding verse 25: "As I read the scriptures, I often reflect upon the chilling implications of what the Apostle Peter meant when he said, 'Judgment must begin at the house of God.' (1 Pet. 4:17.) In our own day, the Lord has said, 'Vengeance cometh speedily upon the inhabitants of the earth. ... And upon my house shall it begin.' (D&C 112:24-25; italics added.) What kind of judgments does the Lord have in mind? Why do the scriptures say that the cleansing will begin with the Church, rather than with the wicked? "The scriptures reveal that the Lord will save his greatest wrath and condemnation for those who outwardly appear religious but who are actually full of evil within. Speaking to Jewish religious leaders, the Savior said, 'Cleanse first that which is within the cup. ... Ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.' (Matt. 23:26-27.) Similarly, the great Book of Mormon leader, Moroni, wrote, 'God has said that the inward vessel shall be cleansed first.' (Alma 60:23.) "President Ezra Taft Benson left little room for doubt that these warnings apply to us. He declared, 'All is not well in Zion. ... We must cleanse the inner vessel, beginning first with ourselves, then with our families, and finally with the Church.' (Ensign, May 1986, p. 4) "There are two methods of cleansing the inner vessel. The first is repentance. But if we do not repent, the Lord will invoke the second method of cleansing-from without. One way or another, the vessel will be cleansed." (Larry Tippetts, "Cleansing the Inner Vessel: The Process of Repentance," Ensign, Oct. 1992, 21)
  10. What section is this referring to?
  11. Go get your own thread.
  12. Dallas Jenkins is his son. Jerry B. Jenkins was one of the authors of the series.
  13. Has anyone ever read the Left Behind Series? While it was written with the mainstream Christian beliefs concerning the rapture I thought it was an excellent series. Fictional mixed in with biblical of the last 7 years. It did go right along with the Bible and revelation.
  14. Yet I can see the similarities. Noah warned the people and they didn't believe him or they didn't heed his warning. So they went about their business like nothing was happening or going to happen and then the rains started. They probably thought it was just the usual thunderstorm going through. But we know it wasn't. We have been warned and many will not believe it or will fail to heed the warning. They will go about their regular business. So yes... I see the similarities from that time with Noah to the time Christ will come again.
  15. I definitely need to get the book. This subject is one that really interest me. I'm glad it was brought up.
  16. This is what I keep watching for. I know that we have at least 3 1/2 years. That's how long they will be preaching at the wall.
  17. Oh I totally agree. I can't even imagine what those in the future will have to endure. Covid 19 was definitely just a small drip of water in the bucket.
  18. I was at dinner with my sons over the weekend. Now mind you they both have nothing to do with the Church any longer. But we were talking about pandemics and such and how COVID had pretty much died down. One son said he expects there will be another major pandemic in his life time. I told him, unfortunately there are going to probably be many things such as that and much much more during his lifetime. My life is winding down and I don't expect to have too many more years on this earth. But I feel sad for the things that my kids will have to go through. I just wish they had not left the Church.
  19. The book that Mirkwood recommended is actually one that I have wanted to read myself. Made me think that it would be fun to have an online book club in this forum.
  20. Welcome to the forum. I look forward to reading further from you.
  21. *Putting my admin hat on* This is a very sensitive topic but an important one. While I can respect opinions from both sides of this, we need to remember to remain civil and refrain from shooting personal attacks back and forth. I am also going to move this to the General Discusion discussion.
  22. Public Square Magazine (owned by More Good) just published an article today on qualified immunity.
