Re: Hello, I was led to this site by the Holy Spirit

It was a vision . The clue is in the name. Joseph was the only person in the woods. Truman Madsen more accurately described it as the "First Visitation." Regardless of Joseph's experience, we are unable to endure the glory of Elohim in our mortal state, transfiguration must occur to some ...

Re: Hello, I was led to this site by the Holy Spirit

She's a God. We would be consumed if we entered her presence... And yet we are expected to believe she is our mother and gave birth to us. A large helping of cognitive dissonance methinks. The same goes for Father. I thought this was LDS history 101 w/ Joseph’s experience in the grove. Without tran...

Re: World cup

I took my 4 year old grandson to his first game a few weeks ago. It was absolutely brilliant. He joined in the singing and even got himself on the official club match day photo's. It helped that we won 3-1. I wouldn't take kids near any high level club games. Maybe second division or smaller local ...

Re: And you expect me to get excited about soccer?

I've always been a rugby man (union not league) and have the scars to prove it. I last played back in the nineties though. The soccer world cup is, however, by far one of the biggest sports tournaments out there. The only thing which really rivals it for global reach is the Olympics. I know soccer ...

Re: Why I don’t pray to a heavenly mother

The intelligences are eternal, not the spirits. I agree with this, but there does seem to be some interchangeability when the words are used by Joseph. Despite them not being eternal, I think it is still fair to say that no mother birthing process would be required. It seems it would be more akin t...

I think it's because the source of God's power is His honor: the honor the intelligences give Him because He can be trusted to be completely just (D&C 29, Moses 3). If He we're to allow any sin, He would cease to be God (Alma 43) because He would not have this honor from the intelligences any m...

Because sin is uncleanness. And once uncleanness exists in heaven, then it is no longer clean.
And why is that such a terrible thing?

The usage of “Intelligences” disputes the reality of a Divine Mother how? Our spirits are eternal and thus no mother birthing them. Not true. The intelligences are eternal, not the spirits.

Due to a recent thread about soccer, I thought I would yank the discussion here. I don't like soccer. I appreciate that many people do. It is often low scoring and tedious. But the thing that really turns me off the sport is how some of the players will act as if they are seriously injured when an ...

Nice goal by Messi. Still 25 minutes left plus stoppage time but Argentina have appeared the better team in the second half. The last time Mexico defeated Argentina, I was a high school student.
