    Holy cow, it is a photo of Joseph Smith. He always wore hats like that.

    I see. I find it just a little amusing how we discuss the afterlife as though we know for certain what will happen there. I think the most important thing to realize is that, if we do not live according to the knowledge we have while we are here, we probably won't need to worry about what happens in the Terrestrial and Celestial worlds.

    Very true. 
     
    Most wards have a bunch of people who genuinely want to help you. You don’t need to be someone’s home teacher in order to just be their friend.

    Yes it is a bold statement. However, I don't assume I am 100% correct, it is just how I read it.

    I based my comment on scriptures, not policies created by committees in church leadership.

    This is the correct answer. The Holy Ghost speaks in the voice of the Father and Son and the others can do the same. Overthinking the gospel can lead to problems in our testimony. It is good to wonder, but the gospel does not contradict itself. If John can sense the presence of the Lord, in the womb, at three months and our bodies are unable to live without our spirit after birth, then I think it is safe to assume that our spirit enters the body at conception in order to make the body live and develop.

    I really feel that there is a problem in the members with judging and ostracizing people that are in real need of their faith being strengthened. We tend to be unwelcoming, speaking collectively and not individually. We need to be more Christlike if we hope to have Him with us as a church. 
    The last time I checked, we are still under condemnation from the Lord stated in D&C 84: 54-57.
    These are just two that come to mind off the cuff.
    We need to be careful to not fail in our covenants or we are in trouble.

    I have considered this passage as well.  What would we gain from knowing the answer?
    Also, the Voice of the Lord could be the Holy Spirit speaking by divine investiture of authority (similar to the angel in the Book of Revelation), and could have received instructions in advance.
    I don't have a for sure opinion either way other than that I think the knowledge, while interesting, would probably not be very useful.

    imagine if they had gone the other route of the sea dragon. A reusable rocket that could have lifted the entire International Space Station in one launch for about the same cost as a shuttle launch.

    The saddest part of the challenger disaster is that most of the astronauts survived the initial blast. It was the impact with the water that killed them. In the post investigation they found that there were switches and controls that were activated after the blast. Meaning that the astronauts were still trying to operate the vehicle on its way to the ground. Very sad day for the space program and they will never be forgotten.

    Technically, Challenger did not explode, it was the external fuel tank that exploded.

    Will the fbi be kicking in these peoples doors and dragging them off to prison in the dark of night? Will they languish in prison, without hearings for over 18 months while being beaten, starved and humiliated by federal cops? No, then release the Jan 6th political prisoners, now. 😡

    It may be a reference to Psalms 48:2 "Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King." And other scriptures like it. There are many references to Mount Zion, which sounds like you would have to climb up to be there.
    Also, in the Book of Enoch there are references to the Son's of God living on a mountain. 
    Here is the footnote for Mount Zion in Psalms 48:2 "There was in various lands a concept that the dwelling place of Deity was in the “north.” Isa. 14:13."

    i taught this lesson, and I covered it all. We discussed how the book of Judges is about the fall of Israel from mostly good to downright evil of it's 500 years of time. We also discussed the Canaanite worship of Ba'al, with child sacrifice, and how that infiltrated every aspect of Israel. Even to the point where the Judges murdering their own children in this way. The lesson also showed how patient the Lord really is, because he would send saviors to rescue them from their sin.

    Be cautious what you support in this world for God will not hold us blameless for what we allow into our hearts:
    Vice is a monster of so frightful mien
    As to be hated needs but to be seen;
    Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
    We first endure, then pity, then embrace.
