Re: 420

Sounds like you are not having much luck with THC. Might be time to try some cubensis fungus? Seems like it. Sad. Was hoping to see what its about. Friend of mine grows mushrooms and offered me a try but I am not sure on timing. She lives a ways away from me. Did you catch this 60 minutes segment l...

Re: The Church needs a transcendent moment

What does a transcendent moment look like for a giant corporation? Maybe bankruptcy and reorg or a hostile take-over. Neither of these seem probable with the corporation of the president. They have too much money to ever really NEED a transcendent moment. Even if 99% apostatized, they could continu...

Re: Bednar

If there was one COBler I could meet on the street it would be Bendnar. I have this social fantasy where I meet him in a public place and have the opportunity to challenge him to strike me dumb, def, blind or dead. I'd call him out on being a dishonest false prophet who has zero magic powers, yet e...

Re: Why Priesthood At All?

That idea of binding God, does anyone know if that is part of the Masons thing, or does that come from Joseph’s occult roots. Did he combine his occult stuff with Masonic stuff for the temple? Or is that binding power part of the Masonic ceremonies too? D&C 82:10 I, the Lord, am bound when ye do wh...

Re: Why Priesthood At All?

Annnnd.....if we want to really get into exploring this idea, the concept of sealing and binding is rooted occult. "I the Lord am bound". It comes from occult ideas that you can bind God or demons to make good on a deal, harness their power like a genie in a bottle and wield it to your own ends. Ye...

Re: Why Priesthood At All?

In addition to the idea that priesthood gives leaders authority over others, such as women and lower ranking men, it also gives the church authority over Jesus. It's the fundamental difference between Christianity and LDS Christianity-- grace of Jesus vs. Saving Ordinances. All the way up to the se...

Re: God is an 8 year old girl

You know how sometimes in class they talk about “idols” and how we put money before god, or sports on sundays, or whatever it may be. And these proxies “become your god” Well ive been thinking, after years of being lectured about morality by my mother, that the mormon god is now an 8 year old girl....

Re: BOM Play in SLC this Summer

NOM brothers and sisters, I did go down to the Salty City last Sabbath day to see the BOM Play. I found Satan there, stirring up the prosperity of Adam into purchasing and consuming expensive alcoholic venue beverages. So overall I mostly liked it; about a 30/70 split for me. There were some brilli...

Thoughtful, how was Christmas? I expect it to have been difficult, especially if all that fun pathology ensured a lot of "family togetherness" time in the past.
