  1. As the hymn states, "Sacrifice brings forth the blessings from heaven." While I don't agree that it is necessarily a weakness to choose another way as sometimes we are required to get our ox out of the mire, it is of great importance to find out the Lord's will and follow it; even if it requires great sacrifice. President Dallin H. Oaks April 2019 General Priesthood Session "At a stake conference in Cali, Colombia, a sister told how she and her fiancé desired to be married in the temple, but at that time the closest temple was in faraway Peru. For a long time, they saved their money for the bus fares. Finally they boarded the bus to Bogotá, but when they arrived there, they learned that all seats on the bus to Lima, Peru, were taken. They could go home without being married or be married out of the temple. Fortunately, there was one other alternative. They could ride on the bus to Lima if they were willing to sit on the floor of the bus for the entire five-day and five-night ride. They chose to do this. She said it was difficult, even though some riders sometimes let them sit in their seats so they could stretch out on the floor. What impressed me in her talk was this sister’s statement that she was grateful she and her husband had been able to go to the temple in this way, because it changed the way they felt about the gospel and the way they felt about marriage in the temple. The Lord had rewarded them with the growth that comes from sacrifice. She also observed that their five-day trip to the temple accomplished a great deal more in building their spirituality than many visits to the temple that were sacrifice-free. In the years since I heard that testimony, I have wondered how different that young couple’s life would have been if they had made another choice --forgoing the sacrifice necessary to be married in the temple."
  2. This is true on many levels: 1 Nephi 14:3 And that great pit, which hath been digged for them by that great and abominable church, which was founded by the devil and his children, that he might lead away the souls of men down to hell—yea, that great pit which hath been digged for the destruction of men shall be filled by those who digged it, unto their utter destruction, saith the Lamb of God; not the destruction of the soul, save it be the casting of it into that hell which hath no end.

    Why we still have Democrats

    This is the reasoning I give when I have heard discussions about how several Democrats running for president in 2020 are advocating for slavery reparations. The fact is, "America" already paid them with blood. If any group owes reparations for slavery, it is the Democrat party.

    In other words, their foul ups and corruption come to light? 😏 😜

    The End Is Nigh!!!

    Federal government regulation/involvement in anything other than a national defense and securing of liberty pretty much guarantees failure in the long term and frustration for the majority in the short term.

    Favorite April 2019 Conference Moments?

    To be fair, the sons of God shouted for joy when the foundations of the earth were laid. Likewise, the hymn says that we'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven to God and the Lamb. General Conference is apparently not the place to do so, however. The thing that stood out to me the most was that the work of gathering Israel is hastening as the time of the Second Coming is drawing close(r?).
  7. Knife surrender boxes? Oh! Thank goodness! Now they can all rest easy tonight knowing that they are FINALLY safe from criminals.

    Sounds like the family should have started the procedure towards due process as that threat was clearly a crime. And as you have answered in a somewhat idealistic manner, then shouldn't we say that anybody who will ever misuse a gun should not have access to one? For that matter, anybody who would ever need to have a gun used against them should not be able to roam free. Clearly, these idealistic responses are not enforceable. The real question then, as was earlier addressed in this thread, is how a determination should be made in order to remove a person's rights. Any method other than a conviction through due process of law is a slippery slope. 14th Amendment: ..."nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law..." If we are going to allow "medical professionals" to make the decisions as to who should have their rights removed, as was hinted by someone else in the thread, we should just go ahead and reopen the asylums. I am very uncomfortable with such an idea and you should be as well. In terms of emergency situations, Joseph Smith already gave the appropriate response: D&C 134:11 We believe that men should appeal to the civil law for redress of all wrongs and grievances, where personal abuse is inflicted or the right of property or character infringed, where such laws exist as will protect the same; but we believe that all men are justified in defending themselves, their friends, and property, and the government, from the unlawful assaults and encroachments of all persons in times of exigency, where immediate appeal cannot be made to the laws, and relief afforded. Just my $.02, and chances are good that you'd rather just give me back my change. 😀

    If they aren't a convicted felon, is there any reason that someone's right to keep and bear arms should be limited?

    Irony - Answered Prayers

    Elder Neil A. Andersen really covered the topic during the last general conference better than I could convey. (I'm not being dismissive, it really covers this topic better than what I would say.) This talk explains why these things happen. https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2018/10/wounded?lang=eng "Along with the bright colors of happiness and joy, the darker-colored threads of trial and tragedy are woven deeply into the fabric of our Father’s plan. These struggles, although difficult, often become our greatest teachers." I would not begin to speculate as to who felt the Spirit and at what times. This situation may or may not been due to softened/hardened hearts. The Lord's will, needed lessons, and experiences all play a part as to why the father might have had these trials.

    Gun people: Tell me about the M18

    Huh. Well, looks like after really not finding a Glock that I've liked for decades now, turns out that I am apparently a Glock 19x guy. It was probably the furthest one down on the list, but there is no doubt about it. Fits like a glove. Love everything about it. Who'd have thunk it?
