So we all know about the Sword of Laban and the Stones of the Jaredites. But... After thinking about these things, a very cool question came into my mind. Is it at all possible for a normal but fully worthy priesthood holder to bless objects in the holy name of Christ to fill them with spiritual power of some sort? Maybe of course not nearly to the same extent as the Stones of the Jaredites. But I've never heard a passage of scripture saying we can't or even that it's not recommended! In fact, the scriptures seem to encourage it with such passages telling us that with great faith in Christ and Heavenly Father, good and incredible things may be brought to pass under the perfect guidance of the Holy Ghost as long as they are for the benefit of man as a whole and to help bring them back to the Father. Can it be done then? And if not, why not?
I always assumed this was so but I've neve seen it in scripture. Thanks guys!
Hi my name is Kevin and i am new here to lds.net. I have lurked around for a bit but finally decided to create a profile. Let's see what to say about myself... My family joined the Church in California when I was 7 years old. So I have been a member most of my life. We moved to Utah when I was 11 and have lived here since then. I am the oldest of 5 kids in my family. I was homeschooled a good part of my life. I am by nature very philosophical and always trying to learn new things. I have researched and looked into all the major religions and philosophies in the world. I try to be very open and accepting of people from all walks of life. I served a mission in the Canada Halifax Mission, which is Eastern Canada, which covers the provinces of New Brunkswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, and Aroostook County in Maine. I am really big into health and the Word of Wisdom. I am a vegetarian and have been for 4 years now, and have been a strict vegetarian (no dairy or eggs) since Nov '10. I also have been doing a lot of studying into consecration and the United Order. I have a girlfriend and I hope to get married sometime later this year. I think that covers the basics, if anyone has any questions or wishes for me to eloborate of anything just let me know.
