    Help with Hebrews 1:1

    Hebrews 1: 1In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. Can someone explain this to me? I read "Mormons are following a false prophet and we know this because Jesus was the last to speak in the last days." and backed it up with this scripture. I went to mi.byu.com and have been searching online, but finding anti-mormon doctrine is unfortunately easier than finding pro-mormon doctrine. Can I get a hand here? What's going on in this scripture?

    Here's the secret. Don't sign up, just go haha
  3. Any Book. I have found that looking through scripture and highlighting what the spirit prompts you to always seems to answer questions for me. A book of mormon, maybe D&C, maybe the Bible. That's up to you. But I think the hardest thing is not being forceful. We can coax people into the church, but force won't help. Invite her and her husband to church, or activities with the other church families. Our ward does a walkabout, everyone has a treat at their house and everyone goes around the neighborhood visiting each house and getting a treat and just saying hello. Inviting them to things ike that would be a great start.
  4. I think you should stand as an example. I mean, she has to really want it -- if she is expecting to fail, she just might. find some great scriptures, highlight them, and give her the book.

    To peacoat or not to peacoat

    Also, a little sidetracking, but my mission pres said music is ok as long as it invites the spirit. anyone have any good ideas for that, too?

    Yeah. well, it helps when you can't see the guys face doing zoolander's blue steel. Makes the coat look less cotoure haha. I have thermal garments for the cold. so hopefully that'll keep my legs warm though.

    Ok, since I'll be in CT it's going to be a little chilly -- I need opinions. My dad thinks a peacoat will be too faddish for the mission field, but, when I'm wearing a suit jacket and missionary clothing underneath I think it looks like a very simple coat and it'll be warm to boot cause it's wool. this is what I'm looking at: Too stylish? or would this work?

    Yeah, I got a letter from my mission pres. I will have to learn a little Portuguese too, which I'm very excited about.

    Need for advice/reassurance in dealing with an ex

    As a child of divorce (I was 12 when my parents split up) nothing my parents did seemed to be right in my eyes. I'm jealous that your children can have such trust in you. I wish I could have done the same. What I have learned though is that, even though I hated the things that happened, meaning the lawsuits cases lawyers and bull crap that went along with it, it was for my own good. I'm not a therapist, or a professional. But from my point of view, I hated it while my parent was "making" me do things, like attend church, visits, etc. But I am forever grateful because now I see what that parent was keeping me away from. Now, both of my parents are active in the church as well as their spouses. It's great. In summary; they may be angry and it may cause them some stress to see you and their mother fight. But I think that one day when they're a little older, they'll understand that you were trying to protect them and that you were doing the best you could at the time with the knowledge that you had. It's the big picture that matters. If you step back, you'll notice that it's not going to blow up as big as you think.
  11. I'm going to be spanish speaking and staying in the United States, Hartford to be exact. What can one expect, culturally? Is it really all that different? Honestly, I WANT to have culture shock when I get home.
  12. This is a sweet site I found that explains the seven last words of christ. I love it! I cried when I first read it. haha The Seven Last Words Of Christ

    Limit your exposure to pornography

    just buy a mac? no pop-up issues here. Pop ups are adware, which are viruses. if you get popups. you have a virus.
  14. If I never came to my bishop about serving a mission, I would not be going. If I were a bishop and I was being asked that question by someone that was seemingly worthy. I'd just think they're excited. Ask him, he's the man to know. Also, when you do receive it. It's not a bad idea to keep a small bottle of oil with you. I do. It hasn't paid off yet, but I'm sure it will soon. :)

    Losing temple recommends?

    I thought this was a question about physically losing it like, it's missing. I'll still add a funny story though and a little information. Two weeks ago I attended the temple (AMAZING!) and received my own endowments. On our way out, I lost my recommend. Yep, don't even worry about it, I threw it down a laundry chute. But! I learned something cool; if you do lose it it has a barcode so if you get a new one, the old one gets deactivated. Sweet! after two days of getting back to the temple and them telling me they haven't found it I interviewed for a new one. 20 minutes after I got home from having my stake pres sign my new one, the tmple called.... They found my recommend :S hahaha. THis totally has nothing to do with the question at hand. but I thought it was funny / interesting.
