  1. I assume that they were worried for the safety of the officers. The same thing happened during the Bundy Standoff.
  2. I doesn't do that when I google the same thing I have to wonder though, why were you googling this in the first place? I assume you don't lick frogs before posting on Thirdhour, but I guess I could be wrong. I would suspect that of a few members though.
  3. Yes, that it how we understand the Old Testament, but not how everyone does. If you were to ask a non-LDS Christian for a scripture on salvation, chances are that he or she would quote something from the New Testament. We also use a different definition of salvation than other Christians do, as well as the means to obtain it. As far as eternal life goes, we understand the connections in the Old Testament, but the references are rather ambiguous without further study or revelation. Christians believe in the afterlife, but even to this day Jews, who use the books of the Old Testament debate as to whether or a not an afterlife even exist.

    Giant Guinea Pig

    Yes, they do (at least when they are tame) and they purr too. Yes they do. They groom themselves with their paws and also lick each other.
  5. It seems to me that most Christians focus on the New Testament because their emphasis in their churches is on salvation and eternal life, concepts that are nearly absent in the Old Testament.

    Faked Protests

    Faked Protests

    My own thought is that a lot of people don't really care about the cause that people are supposedly protesting, but that they are just using it as an excuse to commit crimes. Looting stores and burning cop cars in Salt Lake City really has little to do with what happened in Minnesota and certainly won't make things better. I hope that they are caught and prosecuted.

    Giant Guinea Pig

    Unless you want to get guinea pig hair all over you, Trooper jas to be sitting on a towel or blanket. She sheds! That's why my wife is sitting on the couch with a blanket and guinea pig

    Carb's Take on Racism

    It happened in several places, the most famous at Suicide Cliff. My brother went on a mission arounf there. Wiki has a pretty article on Suicide Cliff: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_Cliff

    Carb's Take on Racism

    I understand that part, but it seems that as terrible as racism is, it seems that most racists don't actually hate other races (though some actually do), but do believe their race to be superior. Of course there are exceptions. I agree that it doesn't make sense.

    Giant Guinea Pig

    Three years ago, we got a baby guinea pig (named Trooper) and she grew up to be huge (as in gigantic by guinea pig standards). She grew up to be much larger than any other guinea pig we have or have ever had. Here she is sitting on my wife's lap. Even though she's really big, she's still sweet to the other guinea pigs and is not the dominant one. The other two guinea pigs are more dominant although they are much smaller.

    Carb's Take on Racism

    Excuse my ignorance on this, but why would South Koreans hate Americans? I understand the animosity and history concerning the Japanese and Chinese, but why Americans? I cant think of any time in history when the United States did harm to South Korea.

    Faked Protests

    The mayor of St. Paul, Minnesota, said Saturday night that earlier statements that all the protesters who were arrested Friday were from out-of-state were not correct: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/minnesota-officials-say-most-people-who-acted-violently-at-protests-are-not-state-residents/

    Twitter vs The White House

    When did he say that? Isn't that what you are doing below?: Murdering a child before birth is a RIGHT! It's all about women's AUTONOMY! Republicans want to ENSLAVE them! Concerning abortion, you are correct that the political left supports abortion rights. How is this more evil than the right's support of allowing corporations/industries/sometimes even individuals to murder tens of thousands of American men, women, and children though excessive pollution and lack of pollution controls? Further, allowing excessive pollution, such as what the right supports, actually forces women to have abortions. How is forcing a woman who wants a child to have an abortion (such as the right wants to do) somehow morally superior to allowing abortions among women who want one voluntarily? Forced abortions from pollution: https://www.deseret.com/2018/12/27/20662077/u-study-yields-upsetting-results-linking-miscarriages-with-spikes-in-utah-air-pollution Studies vary from an absolute minimum of 30,000 US citizens to over 100,000 US citizens a year are killed by pollution under current protections. And the political right not only wants to allow the current death rates, but wants to make the deaths far worse by loosing the protections which will cause many times more deaths. If abortion is murder, then this is definitely murder and terrrorism on much more evil scale because we are talking of humans who can feel pain and will suffer greatly. https://www.usnews.com/news/national-news/articles/2019-04-08/100-000-americans-die-from-air-pollution-study-finds As much as I despise the Democratic party, I will never support the Republican party as long as they support loosening protections on the American people. It's time we ditch the two party system.

    Moroni

    From our chuch website: https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/scriptures/gs/angels?lang=eng Angels There are two kinds of beings in heaven who are called angels: those who are spirits and those who have bodies of flesh and bone. Angels who are spirits have not yet obtained a body of flesh and bone, or they are spirits who have once had a mortal body and are awaiting resurrection. Angels who have bodies of flesh and bone have either been resurrected from the dead or translated. Our chuch believes that everyone will be resurrected, but at different times. I would presume that Moroni was resurrected when he was because he had a work to do.
