Re: Brant Gardner Gave the "Ancient" Bias Game Away on the BofM

I always laugh at chiasmus in the BOM as evidence of hebrew origins when the same is used by the Strangites as evidence for Strangs translations.

Re: Kings, Messiahs, and Sex

Good find! We also get a bunch of parallels of the united order in the Owenites that operated secular communal living experiments in the Kirtland area at the time of the early church. In fact the Isaac Morley "family" was a religious manifestation of that communal experiment based on Sidney Rigdon's...

Re: Gods All The Way Down

This doctrine became really problematic for me on my mission in the Southern US when the biblically educated would whip out Isaiah 44:6 "Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God." I eventually just pu...

Re: Book Review of "This is My Doctrine" Part 1

Good review. This is one of my favorite books in my journey of discovery because Harrell does a good job of laying out in a systematic form all the ways the doctrine has evolved and I found a few jaw dropping gems I had never considered. I love how he discusses the development of the satan character...

Re: The Holy Ghost vs. active shooters

New Zealanders may not have the felt need for firearms because of the way they received their independence. It was practically handed to them in the 1850s by a British government afraid of making the same mistake it had made with the American colonies. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independence_o...

Negative self help

Interesting article on what the author calls "negative self help". I like his thoughts on overcoming our delusions.

Re: Questions about YM changes

That was my very first thought. TSCC has no concern for it's local leaders and their time/family life. Right? I was never a bishop but I had my four kids really close together and was called as EQP right before the fourth one was born. That was just stupid! Life was too busy for me to do all that a...

Re: Resignation ≠ Real Name Removal = Illegal?

All are necessary in the body of MSR, even deletions and requested removals remain in some sector of the digital realms thrown into being at the COB. There is always the possibility ...
