  1. Venus?
  2. So we're wondering if it's God or Gene Rodenbury who has power to bring exaltaton and eternal life to his children?
  3. I don't think so. I believe that a person with no income has always been counted as a full tithe payer.
  4. I like this part of the wiki article best! Declared insane By 1895 he was declared insane. One of his more notable eccentricities was the founding of a hot food delivery company to prospectors in the Klondike Gold Fields. The difficult logistics of this service scared away investors and ultimately provided its downfall. He died in Victoria at the age of 71.
  5. I don't understand your first sentence. "but notice it is one thing "voice" would seem to be an incomplete sentence and I'm not really sure what you mean. "how the spirit whispers to each of us" (to quote myself more completely) means that the spirit does not shout. 11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. 1 Kings
  6. You're making my point with your article. You cannot pay people $30,000/yr and not expect them to be looking elsewhere for work. Where did I, or anyone, imply that Utah was the entire country???????? And yes, $30,000/yr is a low wage.
  7. You need to do some real research before you start throwing out numbers. If you have a 45 million dollar budget that would be $45,000 per employee. About $15,000 of that budget is going to be eaten up by benefits and taxes, leaving your employee with $30,000 in take home pay (before the employees taxes). If your trying to run a large organization and are only paying your employees an average of $30,000/yr you're going to be looking at a business with very high turnover as employees are constantly leaving for better paying positions. Your training budget is going to go through the roof and employee moral will plummet due to the constant turnover. Unless you're running a fast food joint (hence the comparison, I guess, to Wendy's) this would seem like a recipe for disaster. http://money.cnn.com/2013/02/28/smallbusiness/salary-benefits/
  8. I read rockpond's post this way at first. But after a reread I think he meant that we shouldn't change anything that has to do with the gospel. I'm not sure what he means by "how we come together as a faith community." Perhaps rockpond could elaborate on that thought.
  9. Theft is the sincerest form of flattery.
  10. I think the key words in the OP's tithing estimate formula were the last five. "...I really have no idea."
  11. Just like each child has to learn what their parents voice sounds like on their own, so we must also learn how to distinguish how the spirit whispers to each of us. There's really no substitute here for personal experience.
  12. I believe that countless hours of instruction has been devoted to teaching people how to identify the spirit. But, perhaps, one of the difficulties is that the spirit speaks to each of us in a slightly different manner. I would think that a much greater problem is helping people to remain worthy to have the spirit with them.
  13. And if children, then heirs; aheirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we bsuffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:17 And he that receiveth my Father receiveth my Father’s akingdom; therefore ball that my Father hath shall be given unto him. D&C 84:38 I don't think there's anything in the scriptures that would imply that any one person would be given any particular planet.
  14. I think the phrase "worlds without end" carries a much different connotation than just saying that that mormons believe they'll get their own planet.
  15. The church still does have thousands of custodial jobs. Temples, visitors centers,distribution centers, offices etc have custodians.
