  1. The rich ruler matt 19 16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. 18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, 19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. 23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Too many people focus on the part of Jesus saying keep the commandments to be saved. what they miss is that Jesus is saying there are two way to be saved. 1. Keep the commandments. 2. Have faith in him. we can not keep the commandments perfectly. Jesus says only god is good and after Jesus tells the man which commandments to keep he says he keeps them all. Which in turn is saying he is also good. But we know that is not true because only god is good. verses 25-26 teach the true meaning of the conversation.
  2. What are your goals. then I can answer your question better.
  3. My great uncles are Jesuit and before I joined the lds church I was in the process of joining the order as well.
  4. What type of monk do you want to be. i grow up in the Jesuit order. They focus on education and living a Christ centered life.
  5. Sin, Repentance and Forgiveness The scriptures teach that sin is a deliberate rebellious act against God and his laws. It is through the Laws of God that we know we are sinners. The English Bible translates "sin" from the Greek and Hebrew languages and denotes the act of missing the mark; the original sense of the New Testament Greek word ἁμαρτία hamartia "sin", is failure, being in error, missing the mark, especially in spear throwing; Hebrew hata "sin" originates in archery and literally refers to missing the "gold" at the center of a target, In other contexts it was used to speak of losing one’s way on a road. More generally it means, “to do wrong, sin or error.” This “missing the mark” viewpoint can give the wrong idea if not understood correctly that sinners try their very best but somehow fall short. The old adage of no one is perfect. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth: sinners are not doing their best, even by human standards. They are doing pretty much what they want to do, which is to live for themselves and not for God. While the archery analogy implicitly portrays sin as an inability to do good, what people need to know when they are learning the gospel, is that they don’t truly miss the mark by a few inches or feet, in stead they have chosen not to do good at all and have turned there backs on God and have chosen to shoot the arrow in a completely different place or direction. Then they will see that it is by this choice for which God calls them to repent and trust in Jesus Christ to forgive them. It must be taught and learned that only through Christ can the mark truly be hit. April 2018 Behold the Man!By Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf “We have all sinned. Our sins would forever keep us from living with God, because “no unclean thing can enter into his kingdom.” As a result, every man, woman, and child was shut out of His presence--that is, until Jesus Christ, the Lamb without spot, offered His life as a ransom for our sins. Because Jesus owed no debt to justice, He could pay our debt and meet the demands of justice for every soul. And that includes you and me. Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins. All of them.” How can we know if we have truly repented and are now following Christ? The simple answer is, their will be fruit of our change. Luke 13:5-9 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down. Today choose to Seek Christ, Seek his love, and Seek his spirit, and you will learn Christ had already Sought after you first.
  6. Do you think they are going to video instead of live?
  7. Saturday morning was mostly about missionary work in how it’s all of our responsibilities. be kind of cool if they brought back stake missionaries and you could serve a full time mission in your own stake.
  8. After talking with family and friends, some thought that once god reveals something it’s set in stone, but we talk about how things have changed due to the voice of the people. now does it make it right or wrong for God to go by the voice of the people, only time will tell. Israel had God as their king but because they wanted to be like other groups they wanted a earthly king. And we know how that went. god said no to the 114 pages but then said ok. Polygamy yes then no. blacks and priesthood no then yes.
  9. I keep a Sunday journal, where I write down what happened during the week. i also keep a study journal, that now had become digital.
  10. Why is judging someone for drinking beer a righteous judgement? Since beer is against the word of wisdom and has led many people down the wrong road. the act of judging them is only righteous if you are going to help them.
  11. Looking for the Best in others. A young boy is sitting in class and his teacher asked him to come to the front and answer the five math questions on the board, 1+2 = 3 1+3 = 4 1+4 = 5 1+5 = 6 1+6 = 9 After he finishes the kids start to laugh and tease him for getting one of the questions wrong. The boy stands there with feelings of shame and inadequacy. Then the teacher stands up and tells the children to quite down, and asked why are you guys teasing him, they all shout “Because he missed one of the questions” and they begin to giggle. Then the teacher looks at the board and says “So he has, but did you notice he got 4 of them right”. We are so quick to pass judgment on others for how they look, dress, talk, how much money they make, where they live, and the list can go on and on. Why do we do it, is it to protect our ego? The Lord has taught us in Matthew 7:1-2 “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.” And in Luke 6:37 “Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven.” When we choose to judge one another we must do it with good intentions, and never with a permanent conviction upon them, only the Lord can do that. We should judge one another with a forgiving heart, and have hope that the other will grow from there experience. The young man from the beginning story had gotten one problem wrong but 4 right, All the other children should have help the young boy learn his error and help correct it so that he could have gotten them all right. Brothers and Sisters I bear you my testimony that if we choose to strengthen our family and friends around us, instead of bringing them down, the Lord will greatly bless us and answer all our prayers, in the name of Jesus the Christ amen.
  12. I don’t know where I heard this, maby I made it it up. “We are able to judge others as long as it is a righteous judgement and not a permanent one at that, only God can make permanent judgements.” judging someone by the type of car they drive is not a righteous one. someone that is drinking beer is righteous one, but what makes it righteous is that you forgive them and try and help.
