    Conference Talks

    I thought the Saturday morning talk by Henry B Eyring about temples was great. I thought the story about his sudden need to move was interesting, he testified of the Prophets' power of being a seer and the need to heed his counsel.

    Non-Traditional "Missions"

    I'm hearing that there is huge success online for missionary work now so maybe the transition to online teaching may end up being even greater. It's funny that you brought up this talking just yesterday a friend, my wife, and I was talking about the pressure and judgment that church culture puts on people one of them was the expectation for young men to go on a mission. I'm just wondering what inspired you to write this.
  3. Maybe the rest of the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible. The book of Joseph of Egypt

    Ready for the Second Coming

    It’s the problems leading up to the second coming that I’m worried about. The goal is to be self-sufficient and off the grid, so I can avoid as much of the chaos as possible. Assuming I’ll be alive for the events leading up to the Second Coming.
  6. Overall it was a positive article considering CNN wrote it. Personally, I'm stoked about all the Revelation we are getting from the Prophet. It is exciting and we should all be trying to receive our own personal revelation on the truthfulness of what President Nelson is saying anyways.

    72 hour kits. Yes or no?

    Here is an old ration pack menu for the Aussie army obviously some things have to be substatuted for Word of Wisdom approval but this is easily replicated at your local supermarket (for you Americans a biscuit is like a cookie) I also attached another document that has a list of things that could be useful for a 72 hour kit, in it i also coppied someones comments on the site saying this list is excessive, which it is, but it might give you an idea of things you want. Pack light pack basics, all you need is food water shelter Ration pack.docx Bug out Bag Both 72 hour kit and car pack.docx

    Self-defense poll for US Saints

    I know I've grown up on a farm. We have rifles and shot guns which I use. Having access to land makes it easier to get a rifle. I have just finished my rifle and hand gun licence course and will soon be applying for the license itself. It's no that we can't have guns it's the restrictions it is difficult to maintain a handgun under the law. There is no concealed carry, No semi-auto rifles or pumpactions. High costs for licensing and many other laws that the government can fine you for if you slip up. If you defend yourself with a gun you are just as likely to be criminalized.

    Self-defense poll for US Saints

    I dislike this poll. I live outside the US and my only option is that I think you guys are crazy. There should be an option that I wish I didn't have an unarmed populace. In Australia we have next to no gun rights and I think that's scary.

    Whom do we worship?

    Just out of interest what are some examples of greek philosophy in early Christian theology. I don't know much about this and I'm curious.

    72 hour kits. Yes or no?

    For my 72 hour kit I’m using a hiking bag with food based on the army rations, a spare pair of cloths, fire source, tarp, knife, sleeping bag, 4L of water and a few army things. You can get a 72 hour kit template almost anywhere online although those kits can get carried away. Test out your kit so you know what you really need, the wife and I were planning on testing our kits out on a three day hike at the bottom of Tasmania to see the Aurora Australis but she got sick. Your focus should be food, water and shelter the whole purpose of the kit is getting you through 3 days most natural disasters are over by then or aid usually arrives.

    How soon is Jesus coming?

    What about the things leading up to the second coming I was reading in D&C 45 about the gathering of Zion and I know in the section it is referring to Jackson county but I'm pretty sure the whole world isn't supposed to gather there so what about the last days outside of the USA. What about me here in Australia Here is the scripture I was reading; 68 And it shall come to pass among the wicked, that every man that will not take his sword against his neighbor must needs flee unto Zion for safety. 69 And there shall be gathered unto it out of every nation under heaven; and it shall be the only people that shall not be at war one with another. 70 And it shall be said among the wicked: Let us not go up to battle against Zion, for the inhabitants of Zion are terrible; wherefore we cannot stand.

    Predictions for General Conference

    Focus on in home family study I think would be great even if they did a by the spirit handbook of ideas or suggestions for family study. I think the first and best point of our spiritual growth should be at home and having your parents lead gospel study at home would be great and there should be no excuse if they lower Sunday meeting to 2hrs.
