  1. 4th Sundays in 2018

    A personal experience. Elder Bruce R. McConkie gave a talk about the Sabbath at BYU. My jaw dropped when he stated that it was OK to do homework on Sunday. I am starting a business and have alot to study and learn in a very short time, so I do this on Sunday as well as normal Sunday activities.

    In case you are unaware, being mentally ill does not mean you are stupid. The psychopath/sociopath knows precisely what they are doing. (You are thinking of the schizophrenic, who likely would be incapable of playing professional football) They are using their fame as a platform to disrespect our county and flag, on camera to their dwindling audience. They are fully aware of what they are doing.

    And may explain the kneeling at the national anthem thing. Perhaps football will basically die off and we will join the rest of the world by watching real foosball

    Sigh. I guess gth time is past for an intelligent discussion. I give you the last word.

    I find burning the US flag to be a repulsive gesture that I believe should be protected by free speech though I find it personally repulsive. I find it almost as repulsive that you equate a protest against violence and inequality as an act equivalent to burning the flag. Are you also concerned about the "mental health" of those who oppose flag burning? In both cases it is showing disrespect for the flag and for the sacrifice of those who died to preserve our freedoms. You just don't get it, do you.

    Let's get to the real issue. An inerrant Bible is meaningless unless you have an inerrant INTERPRETATION of the Bible. Where is that source of inerrant interpretation? Are you claiming that honor. Perhaps Martin Luther. Let's look at John 3 [5] Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water AND of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. The inerrant interpretation of this verse? After all, Christ is telling us a requirement for salvation, so there should be no disagreement on His meaning. You have not answered my other questions so let's see if we can get a response here.

    Little, You have now gotten my attention, and I suspect we will be spending some time together, May I suggest that you really do your homework and go beyond the usual antiMormon stuff.

    Is baptism necessary for salvation? What did Christ say. Do ALL Christians agree with you.
  9. jospeh the con man?

    Is water baptism necessary for salvation? Is confessing Christ sufficient for salvation -- how about keeping the commandments and repentance. Tell us about == pre-destination vs free will. Will we all be judged by our works? What did Christ mean when He said, John 17 [21] That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.[22] And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: Does that mean we will become "one substance" (Nicene Creed) with the Father and Son? If these questions have been answered, do ALL Bible believing Christians agree on that answer. You "know" the answers but does the Pope agree with your answers? I think you are full of baloney, but let's see what you got.

    This is a very long sentence that basically says, "I don't get it." I do get it. Just curious, how do you feel about burning the American flag. Istis also a "small symbolic gesture"?

    CFR. This is a very serious accusation and this is a formal request for credible documentation beyond antiMormon gossip.
  12. jospeh the con man?

    Do you believe that you can tell God HOW to do his business? He "protected His Word and fulfilled it" by calling prophets in our day and restoring the Gospel. He did it by giving us modern revelation -- the Book of Mormon -- and calling prophets in our day. Do you remember the Jews rejecting Christ because he did not defeat the Roman domination of Israel. The Jews made the same mistake by telling God what the Saviour would do. They told God what to do and they rejected God's living prophets. They supposed that they were wiser than God Himself.
  13. Thank you for your honesty and confirming that you are putting words in his mouth. You have given an excellent example of the "either/or" fallacy, but surely you knew that already.
  14. Ed Decker == Mormon apologist?

    WE are held responsible for the decisions we make in this life. The test works, but that does not mean that we are guaranteed to make the "optimal" decision. The wicked will find what they are looking for, and the righteous as well. In reality, the test is not about the Gospel, the test is all about us, the individual. Alma 32 is a test of our character, our desires, what kind of person we are. There are no "false positives", only about the decision we make. "It is impossible for us to break the law. We can only break ourselves against the law." Cecil B. DeMille
