  1. Thanks for your response Rev....let me start with your idea that Jesus was begotten on a specific day. Now you need to use scripture to interperit scripture. And I believe what scripture plainly says, i'm with you on that, I just do a little more digging. Psalms 2:7 states Psa_2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. And twice that verse is quoted in the NT: Acts 13:33God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. Hebrews 1:5 5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? I would conclude that "this day" was eternally in the past (everlasting) and not a specific day in history. You see how this conclusion ties everything nicely together, no contradiction? Here's a little more to support my conclusion, John 1:14 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. And John 3:16-18 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. Pretty clear in scripture that the Nicene creed is correct that he was begotten before all ages or worlds....before time. 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God.

    Fashion Question

    From the Ensign article Of course, modesty is not new. It was taught to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. “Unto Adam … and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them” (Genesis 3:21; see also Moses 4:27). Like Adam and Eve, we have been taught that our bodies are formed in the likeness of God and are therefore sacred. I don't think Elder Hales could have possibly misrepresented scripture any worse......classic LDS!
  3. I can feel your frustration. The Christian world feels the same way towards our LDS brothers as you do towards us. Our hearts cry out as we try to comprehend how the LDS could buy this lie from Joseph....which is so easily torn down and shown as a fraud....but yet the LDS church remains and it's followers believe Joseph....my Father is a TBM and it breaks my heart that he has been blinded by such an obvious false Prophet. In essence we do not believe God is a liar.....we believe his Word (the Bible) to be accurate and true. The attitude of the LDS is that they have God "figured out". They completely understand him...everything about Him....no mystery... As a Christian I can't possibly completely comprehend the power, majesty, holiness and compassion of our mighty God...but the Bible helps us to understand and it is sufficient. I see the LDS picking and choosing parts of the Bible that support the current LDS sect's agenda, and when the Bible doesn't agree with them...that's where the Bible has been corrupted. Anyways....I feel your frustration!
  4. I love today's attitude among the "intellectuals", that we are so much smarter and scientifically advanced compared to those cave dwellers. Mean while they believe nothing exploded into the universe and rocks evolved into humans. Equally impossible to reconcile with reality IMO.
  5. This is more like science fiction than science. Pure fantasy on equal ground with any other evolutionary religion. Just a few questions, how did the moon form close enough to the earth without a collision? Why are all the planets in our solar system so different if they came off of a part of the sun which is all hydrogen and helium? Where did all the heavy elements come from? How does a gas cloud collapse in on itself when gasses have never been seen doing this? Why do two of the planets rotate retrograde compared to the other 6 violating the law of angular momentum? Like evolution, the nebular hypothesis theory has some massive holes you need to gloss right over.

    The coats of skin

    This was the first blood sacrifice for sin.....and the first death of any animal......for there was no death before the fall. Also a foreshadowing of the one who will be sacrificed for the world.
  7. There you go hiding behind that silly defense that evolution doesn't involve abiogenesis. Please give me your definition of what the theory of evolution is so I know what you mean. And yes....the evolutionary worldview would state that billions of years ago it rained on the rocks creating a "primordial soup"....then a bacteria...then blah blah blah and then here we are.....all by random chance.
  8. Have you seen his creation seminar series? Anything specific you can point out?
  9. I have heard that the speed of light is not-constant and that it is slowing down.....just throwing that out there for the physics guys....is that true or not I don't know. Also we do not know what the speed of light is in one direction, we do know for two directional, but not for one.
  10. I'm not going to defend a guy I don't even know.....but what about his young earth presentations don't you like?
  11. Have you watched his creation seminar? What do you find so offensive about him?
  12. Your response makes me smile....you say my Biblical worldview doesn't make any sense.....then mention evolution as science......so in your worldview.... a rock evolved into a human over billions of years......great! Makes sense to me! LOL! You do realize your theory can't explain abiogenesis or life from non-life right? Look at that problem there honestly, and the evolutionary worldview says that just randomly happened.
  13. I don't belive the bible is clear on this but it must have been their sisters.
  14. I reject the evolutionary world view and timeline. You have to realize you have been taught this timeline your entire life so I know I sound crazy....I get it (the vast majority of Christians think the young earthers are nuts too!) But the biblical narrative is quite clear in my opinion about the age of the earth. We have the Geneology from Adam to Noah in Genesis 5, Genesis 10 and then Matthew 1 tells us Abraham to Jesus. I am just pointing out scripture if you do a little homework you would come up with the same young earth timeline. Now some of the LDS and Christians alike come up with all sorts of explinations to justify their billions of years old theory of the age of the earth. Or the easy way is to just say the Bible is inaccurate....which I reject. I trust the creater of the universe, the designer of you and I, more than the scientific world view. If you want to be intillectually fair to yourself just you tube "Kent Hovind's creation seminar" he gives an excellent presentation of the young earth...you would probably be suprised that there is a ton of evidence pointing to the bible being accurate.

    Hawking's Last Theorem

    I think there is a ton of scripture that supports this idea of a hologram.......or that we are only privy to see a 4 dimensional universe....lenght X width X height X time. The fact that angels appear out of nowhere shows that there is some kind of "spiritual universe" we are unable to see. The Lord Jesus also appeared to the witnesses out of nowhere.....when they were sitting in an enclosed room. Joseph claimed that God and Jesus appeared to him out of "nowhere" (I don't believe this) but am making a point. The mighty angels in Daniel 10. The "sons of God" and Satan himself appear before God in Job 2....Satan states that he has been walking up and down in the earth. 2 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord. 2 And the Lord said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. The fact that Christ talks of "heaven" and a place where we will be with him. I am no physics guru but the holographic universe has a lot of merit in scripture!
  16. I put my trust in the Bible as more trustworthy than what the "scientists" say. So the Bible says that the earth is young, I go with that. The dinosaurs were created on day 5 with all the other beasts meaning man lived on the earth at the same time as the dinosaurs. Remember scientific "fact" constantly changes...the age of the earth, the big bang all of these theories are constantly changing and evolving.....is simply trust the Bible more than man.

    Hawking's Last Theorem

    Stargazer, here is an excellent presentation I think you would enjoy.....by my man Chuck Missler.
  18. I'm not sure how accurate your dates are above but I will assume that the current scientists are correct. First rocks.....then primordial soup......then a bacteria......dinosaurs.... etc.....all the way up to you.....so you are an evolved rock. If you are satisfactory with this as a "scientific theory" that have at it....just sounds like a faith based religion to me. I can't really explain the LDS take on this either....you can't pin it down, many faithful LDS on this board agree with you paragraph above.....others go with the take from 2 Peter 3:8 that states a day to the Lord is a thousand to us...... I've said this before but I go with the "crazy young earther" take, that the text in the Bible is accurate in its dates (that the earth is around 6000 years old) and that Man lived with dinosaurs that were created on Day 6 ....along with all the other creatures...they were all vegetarians...Genesis 1:28-30. I simply go by what the Biblical texts says. I assume the Bible to be the word of God...that the dates and Genealogies are accurate and to be trusted. I know it sounds crazy...but you believe your great great great great great grandfather was a rock....so who has more faith?
  19. What are you talking about dinosaurs never existed, we have bones buried worldwide...that is pretty well established. What do you mean by that? There is a lot of evidence for a younger earth, for example, the rotation of the earth is slowing down measurably, the moon is moving away from the earth in a distance that we can measure. You don't accept "evolution" as truth do you?
  20. The only way the whole story of the bible makes sense is if you take the Bible for what it is and what it says. The creation claims found in the bible are just as relevant as the claims about Jesus, who he was, and what his claims were as well. The bible absolutely refutes evolution, an old earth and death before the fall. I struggled with evolution for many many years....simply because it is taught in all public schools starting in kindergarten...it is forced on kids at school...same with the age of the earth. The "group think" on these issues is astounding....you can't even raise questions, without being attacked as some crazy person on these topics.....The discussion is over, evolution is fact, you evolved from a rock California boy!
  21. Lucky for the LDS the "science of evolution" has never been even remotely proven.....it's simply a state sponsored religion.
  22. I'm confused. "A Utah family working on a landscaping project unearthed the fossil remains of an ancient horse dating back more than 2 million years." Then the article states this THIS 3,000 YEAR-OLD HORSE GOT A HUMAN STYLE BURIAL How old is the horse? 2 million or 3 thousand years? I know "scientists" like to give a date range but that is a pretty wide range. I didn't realize humans removed the craniums, to make it a "human style burial".?!? Then Hunter goes on to speculate about a rapid burial to preserve everything..... My speculation is that it was buried by a flood.

    Armed with righteousness

    Read Ephesians 6: 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. 21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things: 22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts. 23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
