    Who Was that Rich Man?

    I don't see any attack in Traveler's posts.
  2. As I was studying this weeks chapters, I noticed something I never have before. After all the destruction, in chapters 9 and 10, the voice of the Lord is heard throughout the land, talking about the destruction, the persecution of the prophets and saints, and that they need to repent. That wasn't new to me, but then I compared it to the voice the people heard in chapter 11. I don't know how many talks and lessons it's been pointed out that it took the people three times to understand. This didn't seem to be a problem in 9 and 10. I wondered why. My first thought was that in the darkness, they didn't have any distractions. Not being able to see might have helped them be more open to listening. Second, this voice wasn't described as small voice. The Lord seemed to use a different volume, if not a whole different method, to communicate in the earlier chapters than in 11. Third, having just gone through the destruction, they were shocked and probably looking to God very fervently for safety and relief. A few years ago, I noticed something between chapters 8 and 10. In 8:5, it says that the destruction all started in the first month, fourth day, the beginning of the 34th year. In 10:18, Mormon says that he'll show us that at the end of the 34th year that the Nephites were spared and had great favor. Usually, when people talk about Jesus visiting the Nephites, they seem to think it was within days of His ascension (40-43 days after the destruction). But it seems to me that it would have been at least 9 months afterward. So maybe the people, while looking weren't as in tune as they had been right after all the destruction.
  3. I hadn't thought of it before, that I recall. I'd go with it meaning mountains.

    Becoming like God

    This is a great discussion. I don't have much to add. But I did want to point out that C.S. Lewis is quoted in our meetings more often than almost any other person not of our faith. I've heard some people even jokingly refer to him as "Elder Lewis," the title we give members of the Twelve Apostles.
  5. I haven't researched it myself, but I have heard that someone performed a vicarious baptism for Alvin soon after the doctrine was revealed.

    I apologize

    Is this like the opposite of Youtube comments where people try to be the first comment by just saying "First!"? Last!

    What is happening?

    To me, it seemed to happen near the end of the Mask thread. MG and Grunt got into it. MG left and the thread got closed. The forums haven't seemed the same since then.

    Angels

    I think "species" is a great word to use there. Talking about humans and angels is like talking about caterpillars and butterflies.

    Masks

    My wife made two cloth/denim masks for each family member. They're my favorite.

    Indexing Marriage Index Question

    Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
  11. I think this says it better than I've been able to. The first amendment protects speech from government interference, not consequences from other individuals or businesses. Yes, getting killed for what you say is awful. But I don't think it's a first amendment issue.
  12. But they still are able to speak. They aren't being silenced.
  13. The first amendment protects free speech from the government's involvement. It doesn't prevent a private business from firing an employee for their speech.

    Stopping COVID

    Of all the things to be able to taste........That's too bad. Prayers for your family to have a speedy recovery.
  15. I'm finally really starting to try indexing. The first document that came up for me was a marriage index page. The instructions have been pretty easy to follow and I was moving along fine for a while. The page I'm on is a list of Brides and part of it shows the Groom's name. One of the grooms is a Junior. I don't see anything in the instructions on how to record that. Does it go in the Given Name or the Surname section? I don't see anywhere else it might go. Thanks!
