Stake: Meeting more capable people
richard7900 posted a topic in General DiscussionI haven't visited my ward for some time. Yet, I've not actually fallen away. I discuss the gospel with a friend all the time. I'll be back soon and then keep up attendance, because certain (more-favourable) circumstances have changed. I don't actually have many friends that I actually talk to. I'm on my own way too much. But, I'm not a loner type at all. Anyway, the thought passes through my mind sometimes, that I'm living within a Stake, where there are few if any "capable" people. For instance: I have an interest in diuscussing literature. Given the nature of the subject I have in mind, it would be good to form a friendhip with a LDS person or persons, who is or are capable of discussing (with some literary insight) - say the work of playright's. But, I feel there is likely no-one capable of discussing literature, with insight - in my Stake. I've just got that feeling. I know it's a negative one. It seems to me, that if it's going to happen, if discussion is to take place, it won't likely be someone in my Stake. And I don't really know how such discussion could be brought to pass. I live in the Huddersfield England Stake. Rich
Dear LDS Friends, Recently, I was reading about how Joseph Smith's mentioned a man named "Mahujah-Mahijah" a century before archeologists verified his existence in the Dead Sea Scrolls. I would like more information on the matter, as well as on a related story about how the Book of Mormon contains over 14 Jewish names that were unknown in the days of your prophet, but were supposedly later discovered to be genuine. Also, if you know of any other arguments and evidences that would tend to support the authenticity of LDS Scriptures, can you please point me in the right direction? Thanks! Sincerely in Christ, Geoffrey

TimP posted a topic in LDS Gospel DiscussionCan LDS members read non-Mormon or anti-Mormon literarure as they are searching for answers to their spiritual questions? Or are you constrained to read only LDS litereature disregarding all else as I understand it is while you are on you LDS missions.
What C.S. Lewis thought about Mormons
KeithLBrown posted a topic in General DiscussionC.S. Lewis was not LDS. He may, in fact, not have even liked The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But Mormons love C. S. Lewis. Authors Marianna Richardson and Christine Thackeray looked at the famous Christian apologist in their book "C.S. Lewis: Latter-day Truths in Narnia." They wrote about the letters Lewis sent to many of his readers. "(T)here is no record that Lewis had any contact with the Church but he did correspond regularly with a woman who lived in Salt Lake City," the authors write.
