    Are there greater Gods out there.

    joseph smith taught that God was not always a God and that He had to learn from his God. whether the church is true or not, i'm staying away from that question. :)i'm only saying that as far as this question goes, joseph smith taught that God the Father was not always a God.

    Gods Right Hand

    i know what you put there was/is supposed to be a joke, but some people take it seriously. :) my friend wrote to me while on his mission trying to explain that the Father and Jesus have physical bodies. along with the letter he sent a tape because it was easier to say it all rather than write it. at one point, his companion gets on and i hear him explaining that the Father HAS to have a physical body because the Bible says Jesus sits on the right hand of God. how could the Father not have a body if the Bible says Jesus is/was sitting on His hand? lol your joke reminded me of that story.

    Thought v. Action

    i guess we just see it two different ways. Jesus said it is adultery and the bom teaches that 'Men are judged by their thoughts.' agree to disagree then?

    Thought v. Action

    to quote what someone already put in an earlier post: "Jesus taught (Matt 5:28) 28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart Alma 12:14 says: 14 For our words will condemn us, yea, all our works will condemn us; we shall not be found spotless; and our thoughts will also condemn us; and in this awful state we shall not dare to look up to our God; and we would fain be glad if we could command the rocks and the mountains to fall upon us to chide us from his presence. " the friend is only saying what the scriptures are teaching. are the scriptures wrong?

    Celestial Kingdom

    i always get confused when people say that they can do stuff after this life. marriage being the case here; baptism, repentance and sealings being examples of other conversations. i get confused because the book of mormon teaches that we have to use this life to prepare for the next. alma 34:33 says: "...I beseech of you that ye do not procrastinate the day of your repentance until the end; for after this day of life, which is given us to prepare for eternity, behold, if we do not improve our time while in this life, then cometh the night of darkness wherein there can be no labor performed." also, isn't the new and everlasting covenant of marriage polygamy? doesn't d and c 132 teach that?

    What happens to families...

    random question just poppped into my mind. i remember hearing/reading something a while back that said that eve was one of adam's(miochael's) wives in the premortal existence. is that true? if it is, was there marriage before this world?

    Word of Wisdom

    i think an important thing to point out about this also is when it says "pure wine of the grape of the vine"; it doesn't say juice, it says wine. in j smith's time, they knew the difference.

    Word of Wisdom

    i may very well be reading this wrong, but this is how i'm reading it. "And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used [but] only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine." that comma stands out to me as a break in the sentence. so i'm seeing it as being in 2 parts. 1) not to eat it and 2) exceptions for when it is ok to eat it. that's how i'm interpreting the word 'sparingly'. again, just my understanding :)

    Sabbath Day Observance

    if it's what you believe, then do it. if they get offended, ask them why they are offended. just use that time to fast and pray about whether or not what you are doing is right. it's not like you're forcing them to do the same as you.

    Word of Wisdom

    i think you are putting in bold the wrong words. look at the end of the verse before that one. "...nevertheless they are to be used sparingly;...". the next verse can be broken into two parts. first, God doesn't want us to eat meat "And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used,..."; second part is telling us that meat should be eaten "only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine."
