Help! Lot's of questions
logsteele posted a topic in Church HistoryHi, I've been brought up my entire life LDS, and never questioned anything--until now. I'm so confused and lost about everything. First off, in the scriptures it says the earth is what, like almost 7000 years old, but the history on earth says that the earth is millions of years old. I don't believe the theory of evolution, because instead of just one monkey looking person, I think they would have found many skeletons like that. Then there's the question of the church itself, how does one know that all the religions on the earth now are wrong, except the lds faith? I used to just "know" these things, now I don't know anything that is true/not true. I'm so confused. Could someone please help me figure out how to know what is true and what's not? Thank you very much, my sould is in constant torment trying to figure all this out.
We can become gods?
PassionForHisWord posted a topic in Christian Beliefs BoardLet me see if I understand the LDS beliefs on this topic correctly: Human beings were born in heaven as the son or daughter of a god and goddess before they were born physically here on earth. Being born into this life here on earth is something that we agreed to in heaven. This life serves as a test and a means of obtaining exaltation one day to godhood. One achieves exaltation by living a life of obedience to Mormon teaching and practices. Those exalted to godhood will inhabit a planet and procreate spirit children. A supporting quote from Brigham Young would be this: "the Lord created you and me for the purpose of becoming Gods like himself...We are created to become Gods like unto our Father in heaven.” (Journal of Discourses, 3:93) So, having that all being said (and if I'm wrong, please correct me), how does the Mormon Church interpret Isaiah 43:10?
My Intro to EnergyTalk; My work is my mission...
vinbeazel posted a topic in Introduce YourselfHaving labored for years without pay in the field of energy education, the doors are opened for me to work for a time in my area of greatest passion; Energy and Education. I started blogging actively in 2006; to promote after-school mentoring programs in the area which is most essential to our temporal salvation; to learn and teach about energy development...Those who control energy control the people who need it. This principle, along with my desire to share our faith has led me to the ends of the earth, looking for active learners in this field of clean energy and clean water development; the labors are best accomplished by experienced contractors in each region, around the world. I have learned for myself the power of Elder Ballard's challenge for US to Join the Conversations, through online discussions and member forums. Having first connected with More Good Foundation Home Page on YouTube, I was an early advocate of helping those with disabilities to share their testimonies on videos. I have recently become involved in radio discussions at BlogTalkRadio; hosted by Alternative Energy dot Com As our influence as LDS pioneers is greatly enhanced when we join the good works of others who share similar concerns for clean air and clean water; or Stewards of the Earth, we can learn how to use our skills and the gifts of the Spirit to unite people to accomplish greater works in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus the Christ, whose coming/return will be heralded by the leaders of nations, and will be awaited with joy by those who never considered Christ as their Redeemer. Thanks to those who have made this forum into an international place of gathering. I now invite you to COME and SEE the power of internet radio to carry our message to other nations in every language and tongue!
