Re: Oaks and Reasons for God's Commandments

If Oaks cannot articulate good reasons why he continues to be such a butthead to the LGBTQ community, then he needs to cease. He should try filtering his rhetoric through the lens of God's love instead. He can't comprehend love because he has none to give. It sails right over his head. What he imag...

Re: Margaret Barker Decimates Mormonism at its Core

There just isn't any evidence at all that there was a "Mormon endowment" in the Jerusalem temple, either one of them actually. I remember those days also thinking that. We can somewhat piece together some ideas on what they were thinking but this means going to the pagan views as well, since the Chr...

The Amazing Barnabas Part 3 INCREDIBLE background

This is, I believe, my third installment concerning the amazing Epistle of Barnabas. The more I look, the more I find. It really is amazing actually! However, I have cut out the earlier posts and eliminate the footnotes except for this section which I call Excursus the Second. Therefore you don't ha...

Re: Update on Epistle of Barnabas, Barker, and Mormons

Thank you for the feedbacks, they truly help. I have discovered something which I think is sensational about Barnabas that, so far as I know, (very little , but oh well) no other scholar has elaborated on so I suspect I might be able to make my little contribution to early Christian studies in the w...

Update on Epistle of Barnabas, Barker, and Mormons

I left the first 3 pages in if you read my first post you can skip down to "Excursus the First" Enjoy! It is a marvelous topic! I'm sorry all the italics didn't come through the copy process to post it here. Makes me mad. It's way too long to add them all in, again, apologies, but it won't hurt your...

Re: The most powerful Mormon

Jesus. Its definitely Jesus is the most powerful Mormon.

Re: Mayan palace at least 1,000 years old uncovered by archeologists in Mexico

I'm sure someone will consider this evidence of Nephites, even though it's dated to 600 years after their supposed slaughter. When I was growing up I was taught that the collapse of the Maya was due to the demise of the Nephites at the hands of the Lamanites, but discoveries like this continue to i...

My new research project on The Epistle of Barnabas

Hi all, I am hard at work on what I believe is a most intriguing research project that kept hankering me as I plow my way through Margaret Barker's interesting materials this coming up year (among other projects!). I present the beginning of my project to give you the gist of what will be involved i...

Re: Another new church speaks of God the Mother

They say that Abraham represents God, and yeah I can buy that because of the sacrifice of the beloved son bit. And Sarah represents mother in Heaven because she was free and Hagar was a slave. And Mother in Heaven is free. Eh. The Bible says all are alike unto God, both bond and free. So, weak theo...

Re: Margaret Barker Decimates Mormonism at its Core

A small nit, it was not Jeremiah that got rid of the Mother, it was that culprit Josiah in his Deuteronomist reform. Jeremiah was lamenting the burning of the Asherahs and getting rid of the cherubim. Thanks for the correction. Like I said, it has been a long time since I really studied any of this...

Re: Margaret Barker Decimates Mormonism at its Core

I actually found further in Barker's other book "The Mother of the Lord, the Lady of the Temple," p. 267 that the temple had the Throne of Glory, the Cherubim, and the cloud surrounding the temple as the sign that the Glory (Mother) was present, it was her sign. None of these have ever been all toge...

Margaret Barker Decimates Mormonism at its Core

I suspect it is entirely unintentional on her part, but Margaret Barker seems to me to be a singular powerful source of giving Mormonism a stab in the heart with a saber. It didn't dawn on me until reading her truly intelligent analysis in her text "Temple Theology in the Gospel of John" why Mormons...

Re: The Flaming "Whirling" Sword of Genesis 3:24

Excellent paper! Did you do that for a school assignment or something? Very interesting research, which adds perfectly to Parapolo's Assyrian Tree materials. I'm impressed Hagoth! Do you have more papers you have written that we can read?

Re: The Flaming "Whirling" Sword of Genesis 3:24

Yes, and that Assyrian Tree is most definitely on my agenda for putting together more tree symbolism! It is one of the most intriguing articles I have ever read on the Tree.... along with Coomaraswamy's Inverted Tree. Thanks for the feedbacks. I have a lot more coming our shortly.
