Re: The Chosen live right now

Oh man, wait until you watch episode 8. I saw both 7 and 8 in the theater yesterday and was blown away. Episode 8 is a properly epic finale!

Re: “Your constant cynicism, accusatory tone, and subtle insinuations are tiresome…”

One of my favorite not-so-subtle descriptions employed by Isaiah is " Drunkards of Ephraim ." Guess who he was talking about? Exactly who are they talking about Marc? Those grafted into Ephraim in the last days. Many are LDS who love power, money, Babylon. I go into greater detail in the ...

Re: Lectures on Faith versus Section 130

I won't disabuse you of your perspective of the scriptures as you understand them. Please do or please try to do so, it very healthy for us to be challenged in our ideas. That's the only way to really test how solid they are. I would have said February too, lol. It can't be the same though. You did...

Re: Temple Interview

I am doing the same thing, but they kicked me out. These flaws, as you may put it, have been in place for generations. You don’t have to stay in the church to teach correct doctrine. In fact, the church has put in place policy so that you will be disciplined if you speak vocally. I honestly have no...

Re: Temple Interview

Well, God is definitely a God of laws and I believe His laws are significant. But I don't equate His laws with man's corrupt laws and double speak. I wholeheartedly trust in God's wording, whereas I am dubious about a lot of wording in man's laws including the wording of our church leaders, many of ...

But I definitely don't teach from all...

Re: Lectures on Faith versus Section 130

My position is that the Lectures are more about characteristics and attributes than an attempt to put the image or corporeal nature of the Godhead into the narrow box of man's conceptions. Bingo!
