    Have questions?

    If you have questions or your faith is wevering, you are loosing your faith, you got problems with LDS faith, but still you want to stay strong. FAIR has opened a new forum for those that need a place to ask and discuss deep stuff, in good spirit. You are well come : Forums | FAIR Mormon Outreach HI, to the good ol` moderators. Long time since I been here. I see many of you stil going strong. I been working with FAIR for a few years now. I also have been translating stuff and got work in a school, read: busy, busy, busy. My love to everybody here, this is still an awesom forum and Pam, the queen, is as awesom as ever. :)

    Will my parents be told???

    Hei kid you are cool You are brave, not so many dare to do what you do, and then the bad feeling just gets worse and worse. It is smart to do something about it! Everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone are willing to pay the price of repention. It is between you and bishop as long as you want it to be. (btw it may well be that your parents already know... you would nto believe how much the parents know adn how much time they spend on their knees that the child would repend... I know I am a parent... of soon 2 missionaries)
  3. Itroduce to him Barleycup. I think that is pretty good and tasts pretty close to coffe (I am a convert, but coffe was not good for my ingestion, so I had no trouble leaving it) Btw I love Barleykop on isecream and in youghurt with suger. All we can do is to wait that they see the mistakes themselves.

    Long time no see

    Hello all. Long time no see It is a few years ago I was here freguently. I dont promise to be here very often... but you never know! I suppose that the moderators are about the same when I got off the buss. I used to moderate here but had not any time any more for that. moderation is not so very easy and it takes a lot of time... and you cant imagind how many dangers ther are trying to get in ... so we all can be thankful for the mods for teh work and time they put to this. I am in full work at the moment so i dont expect I will be her often, but sometimes. So read your scriptures and dont let them decieve you. Even in here there are some wolves in borrowed sheepclothing. BTW I write and speak in 3 languages.. so ther is a possibility I mix them sometimes. Sometimes I talk in one language on skype, write in an other and read in third.. or just write to 3 in fb simultaneouslu in each language... and besides I KNOW I make a lot of spelling mistakes, but that just is the way it is. Pam need anythign just ask... is ther any special place to go for a roomer?
  5. I am sorry but we have nto really bumped in to lables that says: Welcome to Zarahemla or This is the town of Nphiha or Here lies the great worior Moroni From the beginning of the BoM we do have real places named, which JS could ofcourse see in teh Bible. However it is utmost unbelievable taht he would have seen one of the very few maps containing the Arabic peninsula where the name of NHM is written, yet the storytelling in the BoM clarely shows, that the place called NHM, where a few yers ago was found some althars with this name craved on them, is situated excactly wher the BoM says it should be. Also everyone in JS days thought, that the Arabic peninsula was bare sand and made fun of the BoM telling there was a very fertile place there. Later they have found a couple of fertile places and one or two of them lie due east from NHM, where the BoM tells that the people were travelling after berrying Ismael in NHM that incidentally was a graveplace for foreighners. About the Americas we have several theories, but because none of the places ahve come with the lables I mentioned in the beginning we cant say for certanity that this is the place. However many things are found adn many things will be found. The Biblical lands have been researched for hundreds of years, the Americas is only starting. The Biblical research can not either for certanity come out with more than a few real proves, but the proves that re not so certain are accepted easier than BoM proves... after all they DO have the old cities that have not changed their names in the history. Names of the BoM Cities again were probably changed a few times during the history. (A good example of changing manes is fex. Leningrad, that first was Pietari then Leningrad then St. Petersburg... or Oslo that used to be Christiania... names do change) One interesting new found town in Central america is the town of Lamonai. What most scolars now ar for is the limited Central America modell. And even there are a couple of possibilities. For more information visit: Book of Mormon Archaeological Forum
  6. I dont think that the belief you have is wrong. I dont know what to believe about: if there was something before God: as it is not told us. It really does not matter in our salvation and we are here to get through this part of our eternity. I believe we can speculate, but we need to be clear in what is spekulating as long as we are not given more light about things. We cant push our opinion, speculation, as truth to anyone. So if someone claims this or that and you dont believe it and it is not in the scriptures be in peace you are right! Remember speculations are not part of what is expected the LDS to believe. I believe that God will always be above us, no matter if He would make us same level as He is. It is like a father or mother, you can become even cleverer than them, but you will always be their child.... and hopefully act respectfully. Dont worry about thingsd you dont understand at the moment... life is like a long staircase, on each stepp you learn something new adn jumpping too fast or over steps can cause you to loose your balance and roll down adn hurt yourself... step by step is the safest way to God. Not every staircase are alike, everyone has their problems to overcome, their part of knowledge they must aceive. Your staircase is made jsut for you, you cant compare your staircase with someone eleses either. It is to make you whole.
  7. On fb there are pretty many countrysites and more coming up everyday. Administrators are needed for different countries. Language English. Welcome to the excisting sites. Here is the Finnish site: Finland Genealogy Research Community | Facebook
  8. In my country if you nemtion religion to anyone you just met or start talking about it ... your conversation si dead. Sometimes if the discusition goes in taht direction... and sometimes you can help it to go that way... they may ask and then you can tell as you did not push it to anyone. Religion is considered so private that it is not talked about. That is also why I think it is highly important to have stuff in my own language on the internett as people surf a lot and may just by a chanse kilck on your site. Mostly the discusitions dies fast also after you have told that you are a mormon and they never ask again, they never come and visit the Church even if you invited them to.
  9. I been doing some misionary work on the internett and I love it. What I do is : I translate FAIRwiki and mormonwiki and have a discusition board for my language. All those undet More Good Foundation. I also have a couple LDS bloggs in my language that I have not done much on lately. I post LDS stuff on my fb site. Lately a new LDS misionary internett site was opend at Internet MTC | Digital Missionaries and I am there too... curious to see what it all is about. Lately I was contacted by MTC Provo for some on line teaching of my language to the misionaris coming to my country... so once a week I will be talking on skype to some missionaries coming to my country. There is so much to do... if one has time... which seems pretty bad for me now that I have started to jobb too. The jobb is just some idioty jobb, but it gives some money to the bankropcy... Oh I went to Missionary ServiceÂ* to be with the MTC Provo thing. There is also a site where you can go when ypun have time and do some timetaking check of punktuations aso... for ensighn, or some video stuff cant recall where that was but you get in only with your Church id... oh and then there is always the Finnish discusition site, the bad one. Stil I need someone to tell me to sit down and translate... it is too easy to use time on these forums! Anyway I am no more moderating this site... I jsut had no tiem to be here so much, just visiting every now and then. If your motherstongue is not English... translateing good stuff is important! See you around!

    Anti-religion literature?

    You can ask a modertor to do it. Pam for example... it would help thanks. I no longer moderate so I cant do it for you. I think we can not .. or can we go to modify our own posts... such a long time since I was here... anyway you can modify it yourself if it says modify on the right corner of your textbox... low... I think. Go to advanced...
  11. And how did you show that to the members that it was not a contradiction?

    Mountain Meadows Massacre?

    The question actually is WHAT would make the people craving for this happy? First it was NOT LDS Churches failure. You cant put on the Church its members mistakes! Second this is done: Mountain Meadows Massacre - The Encyclopedia of Mormonism People who keep this thing in spotlights only wnat LDS to feel bad about their religion, they have no wish for any admittings or what ever..... they just hang to it as the Church dont take the responsibility of something it was not responsible of!

    Anti-religion literature?

    Anti-mormon literature thread that is not of anti-mormon litarature? Change the name to anti-religion then! If anti-religious books are as stupid as anti-mormon books they are a waist of time. They just try to digg the earth from under you, so suddenly you might find out you stand on a grass-square in the air and fall. If you are faithless so you can read what ever you wont and it dont do anything to you and why should you care if you are faithless? Why start a thread like this in a religious forum? Cant see a point? Except constating here or elsewhere, that church is telling people what to read or what not. I have read a lot of anti- literatutre it dont bother me spirituallya s I read it not because of to find out the wrongs but how to defend against it. To find out how people who read or write such .... think and how to help the weeker not to fall for those stupid sceems!
