  1. New First Presidency

    Now, you've just got to be like the cool kids and install a chimney in the SLC temple to burn the ballots...
  2. New First Presidency

    I've only got a couple of pages in, but I have to say that you guys aren't all that different from Catholics when it comes to speculating on why a president/pope was chosen, what was done behind the scenes, and what it will mean going forward
  3. Acts 17:28 Question

    I'm sorry, I guess I was being too sensitive. You and I butt theological heads from time to time but I've always loved our interactions and your contributions to this board. I apologize. And thank you, too, for the rest of your post. It makes sense to me, too. One of these days I'll make it out to LA and we are going to have that lunch together
  4. Acts 17:28 Question

    I agree.
  5. Acts 17:28 Question

    This is incorrect and misleading. Paul of Samosata was not excommunicated for teaching Trinitarianism. In fact, he was excommunicated for teaching ideas contrary to Trinitarianism. He was a Monarchist, which taught that God was one person, in contrast to Trinitarianism, which teaches that God is three persons. Monarchism was a heresy and Paul of Samosata was duly excommunicated for teaching it. Also, an ecumenical council did not excommunicate Paul. It was a synod.
  6. Acts 17:28 Question

    Perhaps this is one reason why Mormons shouldn't get so worked up when someone says they are not Christian..? It doesn't make much sense to claim to be a part of a religion and then claim that that religion's core doctrine -- the nature of God -- is not only wrong but nonsensical.
  7. Acts 17:28 Question

    It's one thing to say that the doctrine of the Trinity is wrong. It's quite another to say that those who believe in it do so because they are fearful, they haven't evaluated the arguments, and that they are dumb for believing something that doesn't make any sense to you. I'm not really interested in arguing about the Trinity, except that I do like to defend those who believe it against the charge that they are dumb. Some of the best and brightest minds of Western Civilization of the past 2000 years (theologians and philosophers and saints) have believed in and argued for the Trinity. This doesn't mean that the doctrine is right. It just means that it's not dumb. For example, one can say St. Thomas Aquinas is wrong on many issues, but I think a reasonable person cannot accuse him of being stupid.
  8. Acts 17:28 Question

    Baptist... so you're a heretical protestant, too. You need to come back home to Rome, buddy
  9. Acts 17:28 Question

    Luther was a heretic. I wish you'd stop using Lutheranism to show what Christianity believes.
  10. Drinking alcohol and non-drinking companions

    And it was a LOT of wine and it was very good wine, too, as evidenced by the host's response to it. Thanks be to the Blessed Virgin Mary for exhorting Him to do it, too. Can you imagine drinking God's wine? Wow, what a wedding party
  11. Yikes. I'm actually surprised, since Mormonism places such high importance on morals and ethics. I thought that his gross immorality would disgust Mormons and push them beyond partisan politics. I'm proud that Catholics came in at only 38%.
  12. The Eastern Churches in the middle east are sure taking a beating these days...
  13. Cathedral bells ring out for President Monson

    Here's the Salt Lake City bishop's letter of condolences: https://www.dioslc.org/about-us/diocese-news/featured-news/353-condolences-to-lds-president-thomas-s-monson
  14. Acts 17:28 Question

    His chart also has under Christianity: no purgatory. I guess I'm not a Christian since I believe in purgatory...
