  1. My great uncles are Jesuit and before I joined the lds church I was in the process of joining the order as well.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Do you think they are going to video instead of live?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Sorry when I wrote jaw I meant it to sound like yaw. Jah or Yah (Hebrew: יה, Yah) is a short form of Yahweh (in consonantal spelling YHWH Hebrew: יהוה, called the tetragrammaton), the proper name of God in the Hebrew Bible. ... In the King James Version (1611) there is only a single instance of JAH (capitalised), in Psalm 68:4. like 4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.
  12. I have also heard that Jehovah could also be Jahoveh (jaw- Ho- Va)
  13. For me it comes down to Doctrine. not all bibles are equal. any other bible versions, take the control of the Bible from the church and puts it into the groups that translated the Bible in question. do we know there motivation for there English translations? Most of the new English translations are change doctrines and the character of Christ. mark 1:41 New International VersionJesus was indignant. He reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" indignant? kjv compassions.
  14. Every one has an opinion, I don’t care what job or office the hold. my salvation is dependent upon what the scriptures teach. I question everything.
  15. Calm down, I am just jerking your chain. i read a lot about the controversy that the church went through to get it built. one thing to know we can turn any chapel into a temple.
  16. Yes, thats right it’s not true(eye wink) 😉
  17. The lds church already has a temple in Jerusalem. but it’s in disguise.
  18. They said for some of the hearing impaired. I don’t mind people making notes, I have had a few people ask me after my lesson for my notes.
  19. Yes, but shared over the internet. i have reading along quit and have found that transcriptions is not flawless and full of problems, just like the notes from Joseph smith days. so far it makes it easier to see the errors in people’s comments.
