  1. Lacking faith is not a choice and it is not my fault. Without a reason to believe all I can do is live a happy life.
  2. I don't feel or detect the Holy Ghost. I don't find any form of divine communication. No message, nothing. .that is beautiful, but I have no reason to believe there is an afterlife. I can only hope, but I can also hope that Cryonics works in the future.
  3. If that is true I must be completely blind. Did I make a mistake to read David J. Hand and Wathey?
  4. I understand that, but isn't feeling the holy ghost something that all worthy LDS deserve no matter their circumstance? but you believe being blind is just a temporal thing. Spiritual things have eternal consequences, right? I still don't understand why a medication would prevent you from feeling the Holy Ghost. Honestly, feeling the Holy Ghost sounds to me like something the originates in our heads. Like John C. Wathey argues.
  5. Honestly that doesn't make sense to me. Why would a medication be stronger than a benevolent god? So if god had something to tell you a medication prevented him from doing it?
  6. The problem is that many couples, especially men, cannot wait because they have human needs. They don't want to disobey the law of Chastity, so they have no other choice but to get married quickly, especially if they have a high libido. For some it is easy to wait, for others it is not easy at all. You told me the brain doesn't fully develop until the mid 20s. So why do you think it is okay for 18 year olds to join the military and go to war? or have other dangerous jobs? why do you think it is okay for 16 year olds to drive?
  7. 1. Why would a benevolent god care about what the vocal critics say? 2. Secular group practices that contradict the Holy Bible are more persecuted than religious practices. The reality in our country is that religions have the power, not secular groups that contradict the Bible. 3. There are not many critics of the church that are very influential. Everybody ignores them, haven't you been to general conference? 4. Mormon 8:31 gives a better description of the Great and Spacious building, "Yea, it shall come in a day when there shall be great pollutions upon the face of the earth; there shall be murders, and robbing, and lying, and deceivings"
  8. but in some wards the leaders and teachers do exactly that. As a child and teenager I was a good boy because I was afraid of god's punishment. However, I was not perfect, so every time I made a mistake I was tormented in my mind. I was tormented for having "impure" thoughts. No one told me that sexual thoughts and feelings were normal and okay. To the contrary, many (including my Bishop at the time) told me they were not okay. I now understand that I was psychologically abused by my ward teachers and leaders. I always felt extremely guilty for having so-called "impure" thoughts and desires. I thought I was going to be punished in Hell. I was living in a state of guilt and fear.
  9. Made a mistake about Jian Ghomeshi, he was violent. I read some more news articles. but we mush be careful not to quickly jump to conclusions. According to an article of psychology today.
  10. Was Zach Anderson a violent offender? Registering as a sex offender ruins your life. Or was Jian Ghomeshi a violent offender? Read story https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/rape-trial-in-which-complainant-was-blackout-drunk-raises-questions-about-consent i agree there is no one type of punishment that fits all, the most severe punishments should be for violent offenders in my opinion.
  11. Prostitution of any kind is not allowed in adult clubs, please do some research and less assumptions. Private adult clubs are not brothels or businesses. Private adult clubs are mostly for married couples. I mean where is the religious freedom? So pretty much only religions should have freedom? CFR! My point is that Atheists are more mocked and persecuted than Christians. and that secular ideas that contradict the Bible are not tolerated in the US. You just reinforced the point, and I am not an Atheist bytheway.
  12. The reality is that Atheism is more persecuted (per capita ) than Christianity. In many countries Atheists get executed. In the US the Atheists can't win elections There are thousands of books and websites that mock Atheism. Most Americans think Atheists are evil. Our Christian government doesn't like secular ideas that contradicts the Bible. For example, in many states adult clubs can't be in a city. The court in Nashville, Tennessee didn't allow a private adult club (private property) to open, not even when the owner promised the club would only operate Friday and Saturday nights. He also promised that the exterior of the club's building would have nothing to suggest it is an adult club. From the outside it looks like an office building. However, courts sided with religions that didn't want the club anywhere near. See report. So there is severe persecution on secular practices and ideas that contradict the Holy Bible. Private property owners don't have freedom, religions do. Remember the Oregon Bakery?
  13. but I don't think drunk drivers should spend years in prison. Just like I don't think that non-violent offenders deserve to spend years in prison for inappropriately touching a woman. Nor do I feel that 19 years olds deserve to be many years in prison or sex offenders for having sex with 14 year olds, thank goodness the court had some common sense in Zach Anderson case. http://abcnews.go.com/US/indiana-man-zach-anderson-avoids-25-years-sex/story?id=34585365 Punishment? Yes. Years in Prison? Only violent sexual predators deserve that in my opinion.
  14. I think you just took the bait. He is probably going to tell you "and how are the Book of Mormon evidences different?" Or "how can we tell the difference between coincidences and miracles?" It was most likely a bait.
  15. "Map: These are the world’s least religious countries" https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2015/04/14/map-these-are-the-worlds-least-religious-countries/?utm_term=.968b6200a8ec Now find those countries (the democracies) in the Global Peace Index and World Happiness Report https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Peace_Index https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Happiness_Report Now find those countries in the Homicide statistics rates https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate Now find Kentucky, Utah, Idaho, Montana, West Virginia, North Dakota (very religious and least diverse states in the US) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Peace_Index https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_homicide_rate Please tell me how disagreeing with the Lord's prophets makes people more violent, unhappy, and wicked?
