    Joseph Smith Translation of Luke chapter 23

    Thanks for the information Mores. Perhaps the original document that Luke wrote did not have the Greek word for paradise in it. Regardless, the correct translation of Luke chapter 23 verse 43 should read as follows according to Joseph Smith: "And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in a world of spirits."
  2. Tell me if there are any thoughts on the below writings I have compiled for a spiritual journal: This is regarding a correction of translation in the Bible concerning Luke chapter 23 verses 42-43. A thief hanging on the cross conversed with Jesus as He was also crucified next to him: 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. The Prophet Joseph Smith taught: “King James’ translators make it out to say paradise. But what is paradise? It is a modern word; it does not answer at all to the original word that Jesus made use of. Find the original of the word paradise. You may as easily find a needle in a pile of hay. Here is a chance for you to argue with me, ye learned men. There is nothing in the original word in Greek from which this was taken that signifies paradise; but it was: This day thou shalt be with Me in the world of spirits; then I will teach you all about it and answer your inquiries.” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, page 309.) The below Joseph Smith Translation of Matthew 27:46-48 reads as follows: 46 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now; if he will save him, let him save him; for he said, I am the Son of God. 47 One of the thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth. But the other rebuked him, saying, Dost thou not fear God, seeing thou art under the same condemnation? And this man is just and hath not sinned; and he cried unto the Lord that he would save him. 48 And the Lord said unto him, This day thou shalt be with me in paradise. As the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible was not complete. I believe this passage in Matthew chapter 27 is not correct. It appears the thief on the cross that cried unto the LORD for mercy was not ready for paradise. The correct translation of verse 48 should read replacing the word "paradise" with a "world of spirits." In the spirit world the thief would hear the gospel of Jesus Christ preached to him. (See page 96 of the New Testament 2019 Come Follow Me – For Individuals and Families.)
  3. 'Deep fake' videos that can make anyone say anything worry U.S. intelligence agenciesBy Joe Toohey, FOX 5 NY -- Posted May 06 2019 -- A video of a seemingly real news anchor, reading a patently false script saying things like the "subways always run on time" and "New York City pizza is definitely not as good as Chicago" gives a whole new meaning to the term fake news.But that fake news anchor is a real example of a fascinating new technology with frightening potential uses.I was stunned watching the Frankenstein mix of Steve Lacy's voice coming out of what looks like my mouth."That's how well the algorithm knows your face," Professor Siwei Lyu told me.The video is what is known as a deep fake: a computer-generated clip using an algorithm that learned my face so well that is can recreate it with remarkable accuracy.

    Suffering

    I know someone who is suffering right now. She feels sick and weak all the time and she is about forty-five years old. She has felt this way for over two years. Before her illness she ran multiple marathons and half marathons. She has received multiple priesthood blessings and I pray for her almost everyday. She is still not getting better. It is sad to watch her. She is losing hope and is depressed a lot. I wonder when the hour of her deliverance will come. I am hoping it is not like the woman in the New Testament who had an issue of blood for twelve years before the Savior healed her.

    Choose the Light

    I really like this video made by the restored church of Jesus Christ. It talks about living on borrowed light and finding our own testimony. I hope you enjoy it as much I did. Watch it here if you wish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jjuG0tznFI

    Oakland Temple Open House

    I have good memories of the Oakland Temple. My parents were married there and I got my endowments done there before I left to serve a mission. The roof top garden is beautiful.

    Does AOC Wear Glasses to Make Her Look Smarter?

    Alexandria got in trouble with DC Comics for copyright infringement on the below picture. In my opinion she is difinitely not a Wonder Woman.

    Should i quit my job?

    If you truly feel this way I would start praying for the right door and looking for another job. My last job lasted about five and a half years. It was so bad in my opinion I was looking for another job for over a year before I could not take anymore and just sent my resignation e-mail and quit. Sometimes your mind cannot take anymore and I felt this way. I was then blessed to start another great job two weeks later after resigning my old job. I have been at my current job for over two years and I love it. The right opportunity is out there for you and I hope you find it.

    Do you take your car to the dealer to be serviced?

    I have seen information that most auto dealerships make loads of money selling people repairs they do not need. I would only take my car to a dealership for recalls I am not charged for and free service. Find an honest auto technician in your area and use them. Ask friends, neighbors or nearby family who services their car if you need direction.

    Nuclear is cleanest, safest, cheapest, and renewable

    How long can I expect my solar panels to generate power that are on my home roof? I got them about two years ago. I heard they will generate power for over sixty-five years but they lose about 3% effectiveness per year from when they were brand new. Is this correct information?

    Should i quit my job?

    Sounds like a co-worker is someone without authority and wants you to do what they want. Tell your supervisor what this person is doing. I would also pray for inspiration on what to do. If you do decide to quit do not quit without first finding another job.

    Modern Feminism is Cancer - Mother’s Day German Edition

    I do not like this advertisment. It was darn near pornographic too. A good father and mother both contribute to the raising of a good healthy child.

    Funnier than SNL

    Saturday Night Live? What is that? I have completed forgotten that the show even exists . It's not worth watching anymore in my opinion.

    The "Mandela Effect"

    People seem to paint Mandela as a hero but he was not. It seems Nelson Mandela's true past has also been erased in the history books in my opinion. Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilising terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.

    Church policy change on same sex marriage

    The only way I passed mathematics classes in college is I passed on college. I went the Information Technology certificate route and took a class, got certificates, and work experience. No college debt for me.
