    Brigham Young quote

    I’ll jump on the bandwagon here and pass along a couple of my favorite Brigham quotes (particularly pointed at those who tent to disparidge things taught by Brigham). We are all very apt to speak of what we have heard, and I am happy to say this morning that what has been said to us is strictly true, so far as I have understanding. Now, supposing that one man has light and knowledge that will circumscribe certain arts and sciences, and another only possessing one-third the information that he does, can this other one be of the same service to the people as he can who has more understanding? The Elders that will undertake to judge President Young and his Counsellors, the Twelve Apostles, and all those men that the Lord our God has given to guide his people, they will stumble. You may go and read the revelation, for you cannot know the importance of this except you have the spirit of revelation within you. [JoD 9:40:4] Well, brethren and sisters, try and be Saints. I will try; I have tried many years to live according to the law which the Lord reveals unto me. I know just as well what to teach this people and just what to say to them and what to do in order to bring them into the celestial kingdom, as I know the road to my office. It is just as plain and easy. The Lord is in our midst. He teaches the people continually. I have never yet preached a sermon and sent it out to the children of men, that they may not call Scripture. Let me have the privilege of correcting a sermon, and it is as good Scripture as they deserve. The people have the oracles of God continually. In the days of Joseph, revelation was given and written, and the people were driven from city to city and place to place, until we were led into these mountains. Let this go to the people with "Thus saith the Lord," and if they do not obey it, you will see the chastening hand of the Lord upon them. But if they are plead with, and led along like children, we may come to understand the will of the Lord and He may preserve us as we desire. [JoD JD 13:95:1]

    The reasons for the flood

    I find the argument between Creationism and Evolution quite moot because they are both provably WRONG. Yeah, that is what I said, neither creationism nor evolution are correct in any way- how devicive of Satan in getting us to vigorously argue between two false doctrines as though they are the only two possible choices. The truth is that there are/were no form of life on this planet that was not previously on another. And there will never be any form of life on any future planet that did not already exist on a prevous planet. All forms of life on this planet were brought from another planet - INCLUDING HUMAN. This is part of the knowledge Joseph Smith was called to restore.

    That's your approach, I guess. Just further proof, this is not a good place to share things.

    Always so quick to impose malevolence in others ... More of a failed attempt to prove to myself that you can lead horses to water. Actually it is a failed attempt to share something that brings me and others great comfort and joy. But alas, I am being shown that it is just not possible here.

    Some things to think about.

    So the first two scriptures show that it is the Atonement & Resurrection Perfected Christ such that he became like the Father. So what of the second pair of scriptures? What have they to do with this? What do they mean? What events are each describing? When does eah event occur? Who are the actors in each event? What are the results of each event?

    Adam-God and Idolatry

    Yeah, just saying that Adam is the father of our spirits and the physical father of Christ raises quite a bit of anger, animosity, contempt, ... I don't think it would take much more. sequitur

    3 Nephi 12: Therefore I would that ye should be perfect even as I, or your Father who is in heaven is perfect.

    Are you saying that I can't respond unless something is addressed to me?

    And what do the second pair of scriptures have to do with this?

    Some things to think about.

    In the King Follet Discourse, Joseph says that The Father was the Savior of his world. The First two Scriptures suggest that it was the Atonement & Resurrection that Made Christ to be Perfect like the Father. Joseph Suggested that the Father became perfect in the same way the Son did. So was there ever a Father that was not first a Son? So what does this mean for us, how are we perfected?

    So what does that mean for us?

    Yes, so what does that mean?
  13. Some things to think about. First: Compare these two scriptures, what is the difference between the two? What very significant event happened between the two? What dies that mean? Second: Compare these two scriptures. When does the first scripture occur? When does the second event occur? What is the same, what is different? What do they mean? What is the connection between the two. What do these two pairs of scriptures have to do with each other? Some things to think about.
