    Great.  So I get $500 that can buy a specific basket of goods because those goods have value commensurate to the value of my productivity.  Or in other words, I can buy 10 pairs of pants and 10 shirts using an otherwise value-less piece of paper with $500 printed on its face because the effort of making 10 pants and 10 shirts out of the earth is symbolized by that print on that paper.
    What do you think will happen to the value of $500 if you just give it to everybody without it having any relation to productivity?  Why $500?  Why not $100?  Or, for that matter, why not $1 million?  They would be exactly the same.  The value of any $ given to everybody without productivity is... exactly zero. 
    For $500 to retain its value of being able to buy 10 pants and 10 shirts when you give it to somebody who did not produce anything for it, you're going to need an equal number of somebodies who produced 10 pants and 10 shirts who did not receive $500 for the productive effort.  There's a word for that... I'll give you a hint.  Starts with an S followed by lavery.

    Well, he is right in that case, those denominations will experience a great civil dispute, but those "churches" do not constitute "the" church. Among all these various opposing beliefs, only one church can be right (and even that church, if it exists on the earth, may not have it all right at this moment - maybe they will in April of 2020, but I doubt it), but those churches can't all be right. And the church will not get it right because of a civil dispute. That is not the way God works.
    I don't believe the messianic "movement" is "the" church.
    There is no White Horse President prophecy. There is only your interpretation of the scriptures and, IMO, it is a failed prophecy. The white horse prophecy is about a specific person who has already come and when he comes again, it will not be to run for the white house presidency. That person, IMO, is Adam or Michael.
     
    I would suggest that when anyone asks for wisdom, understanding, or the Holy Spirit, it will be given. The "ask, seek, and knock" offer was not made to Mormons alone, it was made to anyone who lacks wisdom.
  3. Okay
    DennisTate got a reaction from SilentOne in How do you pray for a long time without being repetitive   
    Personally....  I visualize Messiah Yeshua - Jesus and the Ancient of Days the Father  being right beside me.......
    I visualize the Holy Spirit right beside me....  as a person which is a new understanding to me because I did not 
    regard the Holy Spirit as a Person until recently.......
    I sometimes tell Messiah Yeshua - Jesus things that I think He would regard as funny..........
     
    Sometimes I think and think and think and think and give Messiah Yeshua something of a challenge.... for example... to have fun with the 
    strange and unusual things that I just prayed to Him and/ or on behalf of His authority????
     
    Sometimes I attempt to give to the Ancient of Days the Father.....  something that I believe he could show a re-run of in hell......
    to the Devil..... and get the Devil laughing....... (perhaps not for the best of reasons....... but laughter is laughter)....... which may cause
    both G-d and the Devil to take one possibly significant step toward each other??????  
  4. Okay
    DennisTate reacted to brotherofJared in A Great Christian Civil War predicted?   
    I believe that civil war has been going on ever since the first protestant movement started and is still going on. The question I have is what church this Rev is talking about.

    DennisTate reacted to anatess2 in I am interested in baptism as a Latter day Saint but.....   
    There's one basic requirement to baptism - That you believe in God, His Son, the Holy Ghost, and that you believe that the restored gospel is true and the president of the LDS Church holds the sole authority of all the keys of the priesthood.
    So, my family are Catholics so I would attend Catholic Mass once in a while especially for special services like a special mass dedicated to the eternal repose of my father, that we hold on his death anniversary, his birthday, and on All Souls Day.  But, even as I attend these masses, I still affirm the truth of the restored gospel and the authority of President Nelson and not the teachings of the Catholic Church that is contrary to the LDS Church and the authority of the Pope.
    So if, in your ambassadorship, you can't affirm the authority of the LDS Church even as you visit a Jewish synagogue, you wouldn't be qualified for baptism.  Make sense?

    DennisTate reacted to Still_Small_Voice in I am interested in baptism as a Latter day Saint but.....   
    Dennis I would set up an appointment with missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  They can teach you more about the restored Gospel of Christ.  If you would like to contact them go to this link:

    Dennis, let me ask you... where do you think the value of $500 comes from?  What gives it the trade value equivalent to a specific basket of goods?

    To me, because it will make me feel validated. Also, it will be a windfall if there's a cash component.

    DennisTate reacted to Traveler in Foreign interference in our government?   
    I am not a fan of Trump.  I do not believe if Trump is impeached, it is the end of our republic democracy – I think I could endure it.  But there is much more that concerns me about all this.  If I wanted to conquer this nation and people and control this Country’s economy – what would I do?
    The best way to conquer is to first divide.  If I was a foreign power – influencing an election would not be an important goal.  The most important influence would be to fuel a political division.  If there was influence in an election – it would have as the primary goal to divide the voters and create any possible faith (support) in those elected.
    If any foreign government(s) are attempting to influence anything in this country – it is succeeding in dividing the country and convincing the citizens that nothing in the government (elected or bureaucratic) can be trusted.  I wonder - if our country is facing the greatest crisis of it short history?  Even greater than any war fought?
    The question is not so much who is right or who is wrong - the question is - How will we unite such divided political agendas.

    Canada owes us much more than a mere apology. Canada owes us reparations! I think $2 trillion is sufficient. For now.

    There has been speculation on money that really is only tentatively based on real world goods and instead is basically only found electronically or via statements.  In otherwords, money that does not exist FAR exceeds actual resources that money is based upon.
    It would be a dark day if/when the imaginary money falls in regards to real hard assets, at which point I'd imagine the collapse would be far greater than even the great depression.

    Yes..... although we have attempted to be good neighbours.... our Prime Minister Pierre E. Trudeau made a colossal error back in 1974 that I believe was used to impose highly unethical central banking policy on the USA.
     
    Here is a statement that Latter day Saints and Jews and Noahides in Canada, America, Israel, Australia and New Zealand may well begin to cooperate on.......
    in some important ways......... One way I am thinking of is turning deserts green.......  large scale experiments related to longevity is another.....
    and bringing the remains of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov from Uman in the Ukraine to somewhere in Israel is a potential catalyst to all this.....
    "And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
    And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." (Genesis 11)
    I don't think that Canada is supposed to join America.... but that is an option for the province of Alberta that may well get a great deal of discussion over the coming months and years.
     
     
    Alberta leaving Canada... and joining America....  is headline catching information that is for certain..... and I am hoping that a possible remedy to all this may be worked out between Alberta, Utah, Israeli Breslovian Chassidic Jews, and Latter day Saints in Australia and New Zealand.... to get this all started.......????
     
    This is not going to be so easy but I do believe that somehow or another Isaiah 45 is being fulfilled all around us in many ways and on many levels.  Captives are somehow being freed.... and this is awesome to see!

    If you Canadians do decide to apologize, try to use words other than "soorey".  We'll need to accept the apology graciously, and that's hard to do when you're chuckling.

    DennisTate reacted to Just_A_Guy in Prince Andrew   
    I have a lot of respect for the Queen, but she sure seems to have a pretty useless set of offspring.  Charles, methinks, is going to be a disaster.  William seems to be a stand-up guy, and seems to have married reasonably well (other than the whole modeling-underwear-in-her-college-days unpleasantness); otherwise I’d be quite content to just let the monarchy end with Elizabeth II.

    DennisTate reacted to Jamie123 in Prince Andrew   
    Curiously enough, "back in the day" kings (and probably queens too, though I don't suppose they advertised it quite as widely) had personal butt-wipers. The king's butt-wiper was called the Groom of the Stool, and despite what you might expect it was the job everybody in the palace wanted. The advantage was that you got to be alone with the king, and you could tell him who you thought ought to get "the chop" without having them interrupt you!
