  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I have also heard that Jehovah could also be Jahoveh (jaw- Ho- Va)
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Yes, thats right it’s not true(eye wink) 😉
  11. The lds church already has a temple in Jerusalem. but it’s in disguise.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Just got an email from the Bishop that they are going to have someone record what people say in classes. what do you think about this, is it even legal? Email Brothers and Sisters, The (Blank) Ward is going to be utilizing different resources over the coming weeks as we try to dial in an efficient and effective way to live caption our meetings. Today in our Sacrament and Gospel Doctrine classes, Sister (blank) will be capturing as much as she can of what is said within the following document. If you click this link, you should be prompted to "request access" to this document so you can follow along as she types. Please come early today to Sacrament meeting if you would like to make sure the wrinkles are ironed out before we start. the document is a google app.
  15. I read the scripture block. then go verse by verse asking questions and finding answers. also I do word studies. and I try and find a way to turn it into a lesson or a devotional. example I was studying Amos and came across his job discription and asked why is that important then I wrote a devotional on it and this is what I came up with. The Gardener. One of my favorite prophets of the Old Testament is Amos and in his book he tells us “I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit.” I asked myself, what is sycamore fruit and why would this be important information for us to know about Amos? So I looked in to it and found that Sycomore fruit is a Fig, and in Its present practice of Egyptian and Cypriot growers of the sycamore (fig-mulberry) trees is to pierce the premature fruit with a nail or other sharp instrument in order to make the fruit edible. The wounding, or piercing, of sycamore figs at an early ripening stage induces a sharp increase in the emanation of ethylene gas, which accelerates the growth and ripening of the fruit considerably (three to eight times). This is important since otherwise the fruit will not fully develop and will stay hard or it will be spoiled by parasitic wasps that penetrate the fruit and inhabit it for reproduction. I also have been an avid gardener for many years, I have mostly been experimenting with indoor gardening for the past 11 years, mostly growing tomatoes and strawberry’s. I have been very successful at it as well, but I always notice when I begin the hardening of my plants, that’s when they become the target of cold and pest. “Hardening off” is the process of moving plants outdoors for a portion of the day to gradually introduce them to the direct sunlight, dry air, and cold nights. So as I continued to study these gardening techniques the spiritual symbolisms just calls out to me. How could a fruit that is damaged become better then if it was just left on it own? How could placing a plant in the world away from its protection help it become stronger? Then the scripture Hebrew 12:6 “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.” I sometimes wish the Lord did not love me so much, But I know it is for my good and the good of my family. I love that we can find spiritual lessons all around us. When Mary mistakes Jesus for the Gardener, I now know why, Because Jesus is the Greatest Gardener of our lives. In the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, Amen.
  16. Scripture is scripture. all the other answers are opinions.
  17. Surplus just read section 119
  18. Faith is a gift, repentance is a gift baptism is a gift And we know that the Holy Ghost is a gift. Salvation is a gift gift equals grace. after you receive your gift do you put it in a box or do you use it?
  19. I used to think the same way, until I realized it did matter. it matters why we do the works. Do I do them to get something, or because I Am grateful.
  20. It comes to order. faith , grace, salvation, works. some like to say faith grace works salvation. what order do you put it in?
  21. I think they were messengers or holy men
