    Ammon Bundy, socialists in the church?

    Ammon Bundy, socialists in the church?

    IMHO and in my limited experience, LDS people have a slight tendency to support the local political view (Dem (which is a somewhat diluted socialism, not the Nazi type or the USSR type or the Venezuelan type or the Cuban type but more a "Sure wish we were Europeans" type) or Repub). Doesn't bother me. Just makes me wonder: when food storage is needed and 50% at best of LDS memebrs have that storage, will they share with others like some did during Katrina and ala 1 Kings 17:16 or will it be more like the Parable of the 10 Virgins, with the response being, "Sorry. Can't share." And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.

    Logan, UT Temple Movie?

    Logan, UT Temple Movie?

    I'd like to see a Logan UT Temple move, like Mountain of the Lord. Like when the first Temple Recorder, Samuel Rosskelley dressed in disguise to avoid los federales and Nephite Warriors were guarding the Temple (http://asmissionariesdo.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-nephite-warriors.html) First 100 years: https://deseretbook.com/p/logan-temple-first-100-years-nolan-p-olsen-14743?variant_id=93798-hardcover Please, dear experts, tell me how to make this movie happen?
  5. From your lips to God's ears. I've asked many members of Congress what I'd need to send them to get Church HQ (sans Provo; my apologies) legally designated as sovereign

    strategy vs. entempered habits?

    Using strategies = cheating? Should I surrender my king from the first move in Chess then?

    strategy vs. entempered habits?

    Yes, Pogi. The point is about managing risk Surprised more people don't understand the risk they take by losing money to inflation after 2008-09
  8. Curious as to what others here think: If you learned the strategies required to count cards and used them playing 21, with set limits on what you would spend and when you would leave/how much you aimed to win, would you consider that gambling? Seems like it would be something else. If you analyzed lottery numbers and used pattern recognition, floating averages, and a few other strategies, would you consider that gambling? Thanks.
  9. This confirms I need to get my head examined, but Bill, in all seriousness please help me understand: if I'm called to say YM or Primary for 8 years straight in 3 or 4 wards, and one Bishop in UT said the youth callings take more time than any other calling in the ward outside of bishopric....just not sure how fulfilling the same thing can be
  10. THIS. This is the inescapable truth I'm hoping ceases to be, whilst finding zen in Zion

    Do our values really foster suicide rather than healing?

    Utah's altitude and air pollution contribute to the high number of anti-depressants and chemical imbalances. Since each of us don't progress in a linear fashion in our callings, it's understandable to think: I'm doing all this service and not progressing in my callings, so somethings wrong with me - then mood-congruent thinking comes in and then a Rx. As far as cultures that encourage suicide over healing, Japanese soldiers who killed themselves though losing WWII wasn't their fault, and the high number of Asian student suicides when they don't graduate medical school by 27 years old come to mind

    “And there are many kingdoms; for there is no space in the which there is no kingdom. … And unto every kingdom is given a law.” (D&C 88:37–38.) https://www.lds.org/ensign/1983/09/seek-learning-even-by-study-and-also-by-faith?lang=eng
  13. “It is held by some that Adam was not the first man upon this earth, and that the original human being was a development from lower orders of the animal creation. These, however, are the theories of men. The word of the Lord declares that Adam was ‘the first man of all men’ (Moses 1:34), and we are therefore in duty bound to regard him as the primal parent of our race. It was shown to the brother of Jared that all men were created in the beginning after the image of God; and whether we take this to mean the spirit or the body, or both, it commits us to the same conclusion: Man began life as a human being, in the likeness of our heavenly Father." (The First Presidency [Joseph F. Smith, John R. Winder, and Anthon H. Lund], in James R. Clark, comp., Messages of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 4:205–6). https://www.lds.org/manual/doctrines-of-the-gospel-student-manual/7-creation?lang=eng - https://www.amazon.com/Politically-Incorrect-Darwinism-Intelligent-Design/dp/1596980133 - definitely worth reading

    The Lincoln Hypothesis

    Several states that left the Union did so because the North attacked states that had earlier left the Union. These earlier states refused to sign the Constitution without a state provision for leaving should it become necessary. Lincoln did free Southern POW's after they promised/covenanted to no longer fight against the Union like Moroni freeing Lamanite warriors who promised to no longer attack the Nephites. Joseph Smith, when campaigning for POTUS, proposed purchasing the slaves from their owners. Lincoln, when campaigning for POTUS, emphatically proposed to not touch the issue of slavery.
