Re: Corsair Visits Nauvoo in Winter

As far as I can tell, the "temple ceremony" is simply how Nephi is approached by the Spirit in 1 Nephi 1:2-6 . Nephi wants to see the Vision of the Tree of Life. The dialog goes: 2 And the Spirit said unto me: Behold, what desirest thou? 3 And I said: I desire to behold the things which my father s...

Re: Corsair Visits Nauvoo in Winter

But my mother-in-law also volunteered her own apologetic of the whole issue of the Book of Abraham. Apparently this guy named Bruce Porter was commissioned by the church to go to Egypt and research the connections between the LDS temple endowment and the Egyptian temple ceremony. Seriously, there i...

Re: Corsair Visits Nauvoo in Winter

Actually, except for one ancestor, I am descended from the first wife, and some of the stories of how unhappy the first wife was would curl your teeth. So, maybe, if not for polygamy, I would be here, just with a lot less bitterness and swallowed anger. Yes, I would also like to answer the "you wou...

Re: Trapped in eternal progression?

Does this "eternal progression" thing have anything to do with "enduring to the end?"

An eternity of anything sounds like eternal boredom to me. :roll: (In other words: "endure to the end," but the end never comes...)

Re: In which the missionaries came to save Spouseman (Alternate title: new dippy bishop doesn't care what that letter sa

As a kid, my dad was a bishop when we lived in a rural part of the PNW. He and his counselor had visited an inactive member and upon knocking on his door were met with a gun pointed at them. They didn’t panic and were able to talk there way into the home. All the man wanted was to be left alone whi...

On the plus side, maybe if you use your phone, defying obedience, maybe...just maybe, you'll get kicked out. But, as others have noted, what are they going to do if you just pull out your phone in class? Kick you out? I can visualize it now: Angry class instructor: OK! Everyone who is playing on th...

Re: Dreams equal visions?

Anyone who dreams during sleep could probably admit that dreams are basically hallucinations . So why do hallucinations (dreams) about "religious" subjects become "visions" or "revelati...
