  1. About all I have to say about it all. As for people entering the CK...I will leave God to be the JUDGE of that...it's not my, or anyone else's job. Period. Regardless of Temple Covenants and Status, we have no idea who will or won't make it to which glory, ever, not our jobs...our jobs and mission in this life is to lead to Christ through the pure love of Christ.
  2. I sort of liked his stuff, it wasn't the end all of art for me, but it wasn't hard to look at. Sadly his death was self induced from alcoholism. People tend to forget that part of his life...he seemed like a very tortured soul to me that tried to paint a better world. May he find peace and the world he wanted to express in his art now.
  3. Right there with ya on that. I told my friend about a dream I had about me yelling at people to get to higher ground when a bunch of rapidly rising water someplace in India started happening. I told her that I saw the whole thing sitting on top of a tin shed, me and a man, were both there yelling to get to higher ground. Then a huge wave came and we were surrounded by thousands of skeletons. It freaked me out so bad I called her. Three months latter she called me right after the Tsunami hit. I've never been to India, all the dead were from India. I keep my dreams to myself now. I have no idea why I have them.
  4. Unless he dies first, then you have his work done in the temple and be sealed to him...or your kids can have the work done after you both pass...or it can be done in the millennium. It's one of the great things about the Atonement, the ability to make it so. But it is easier to do it right the first time, saves everyone a lot of work and worry. However, being sealed doesn't guarantee the marriage is eternal, it simply sets the foundation. The husband and wife must be willing to want and work at having a celestial marriage to make it that...once the sealing is done the real work begins.
  5. My question is this...what happens to all that food storage and money if you have it all in your house and the house burns down due to either an Act of God, Act of War, Act of Terror? I am not saying it's a bad idea, it's is a great idea to have food storage, to follow the Prophets warnings and be prepared, but what if even after all that the guy in the OP ends up losing it all due to something like a massive bomb or natural disaster that destroys everything.
  6. Me...I'm looking forward to the 2nd Coming. Comping at the bit actually, it comes from the knowledge that even if I die some horrible death by the hands of terrorists, I'll be okay. The only thing keeping me from reaching the Celestial Kingdom is me and my own sins, there is no fire ball, no horrible terrorist action, nothing anyone else can do to me to **** my eternal progression, that's all up to me. I'm going to die at some point the way of my death isn't the point of my life, it's if I lived my life in with out fear and with charity, forgiveness and having the ability to teach others of the gospel. I pity people who don't have an understanding of the Atonement and that it covers so much more than just our sins. That must be a fairly scary life to live, fire balls and barbarians at the gate must be horrifying thoughts with out having faith in Christ.
  7. Donald Trump can't even manage to get a decent hair cut, has the morals of an alley cat in heat and has filed for bankruptcy more than once...and I'm supposed to believe him 15 Prophets and Apostles on the other hand has been saying we need food storage and spiritual preparedness for years on end. And it has nothing to do with which country any of us live in or the government of that country...they say it to the entire world. Of course those 15 men also say if we are prepared we have no need to fear because...we do have the winning hand. Apparently some of us didn't get the message the Savior already won the war, we simply need to have some faith and do what the Prophets have been telling us to do for the last 60 plus years. The Donald and his groupies can live in fear all they want. I choose to live prepared and unafraid.
  8. so a man who has just a drop of canaanite lineage could not hold the Priesthood. Interesting.
  9. I'm glad I have Christ in my life, I have no idea how I would face the world otherwise.
  10. I think the First Presidency is a better choice to follow than an editorial in the Boston Globe. I know what my choice will be and it won't be a Boston Paper.
  11. This makes me glad I am LDS. And I think sinners are in the most need of the Sacrament and power of the Atonement it represents...call me crazy, but perfect people don't need either.
  12. I've read it several times, never counted though. Last year when I started reading it again in August I set a goal to be done by December, which I did. However, in or about 3rd Nephi I started doing something completely different, I started to write a journal of my feelings and observations of what I had read. Which lead me to a whole different field of study. So this year I started over from the beginning. I am now writing in my journal of the experiences, feelings and thoughts I have for what I read...I also end up digging a lot deeper than just the BoM on the issues, such as finding modern revelation from our Prophets today that correlate with the BoM and how they all tie together. Just Monday I was reading a part of 2nd Nephi, which took me on a journey to D&C 11 and then to a article in the Ensign and back to Isaiah, so after two hours of really studying one chapter in 2nd Nephi I have several pages of journal entries that are specific to me and my thoughts. I have found it really helps me to do this. It will take me a while to do this, but I am not just reading the BoM to add gold stars by my name to say I did it. I agree about the Nephite cycles, they are very important for us to study now, right now, right here. They are screaming warnings at us today.
  13. 7 And if thou shouldst be cast into the pit, or into the hands of murderers, and the sentence of death passed upon thee; if thou be cast into the deep; if the billowing surge conspire against thee; if fierce winds become thine enemy; if the heavens gather blackness, and all the elements combine to hedge up the way; and above all, if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good. 8 The Son of Man hath descended below them all. Art thou greater than he? 9 Therefore, hold on thy way, and the priesthood shall remain with thee; for their bounds are set, they cannot pass. Thy days are known, and thy years shall not be numbered less; therefore, fear not what man can do, for God shall be with you forever and ever.
  14. In my opinion an emotional affair can be far more damaging to a marriage than a one time opps. Emotional affairs are not just about sex, like a one night stand, there are real intimate emotions involved that are far more binding than the act of sex. That is why they are so devastating, and hard to heal from. It's the emotional affairs that tend to end the marriage, because the spouse is in love with someone else too...it's not just a romp in the hay and they don't have emotional ties to the person. It's more than just bodily fluids that get exchanged in emotional affairs. I think the betrayal is far more real in an emotional affair, because the spouse is sharing their mind, spirit and emotions with someone they have no promise too. I've lived through both...and one is far easier heal from than the other. I do wish you happiness and peace Deniallady ((((hugs))))
  15. I put my daughter on the pill and hormone replacement due to PCOS. Best decision I ever made...and amazingly enough her being on the pill didn't turn her into a sexually active girl. It did, however, make her periods regular, made her hormones normal, evened out her moods (and they were bad) and brought her out of a depression she had been in since about age 13. Her being on the pill made it like night and day in her world, she came out of the dark, her body started acting normal, and she is 100% happier. And if she goes off the pill, it's only days that she slips back into the unbalanced hormonal person. Her cycles are regular now, not all bad wonky, she is not anemic anymore and her over all health has improved. Had I had a clue as to what was going on to begin with, I would have not waited until she was 17 to seek help. Had the guilt of putting my daughter on the pill not been so overwhelmingly strong...she wouldn't have had to be put on all those other meds to fix her depression.
