  1. Well for what it is worth I do not believe that Joseph stopped translating and said hand me that Bible so that I can show you which section to copy. If I had been Joseph it would have troubled me greatly to have gotten an ancient record only to be told well copy this and that from the Bible. No hard feelings I hope!
  2. Yes freedom is God given here on earth, God is the Father and is powerful in working on the hearts of his children. If we want miracles for people to change we need to have faith. Pray can express faith even if we are not sure what to say we are at the deepest level asking for God to help us by praying. I am sorry for the large text!!! Romans chapter 8 26 Likewise the Spirit also ahelpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should bpray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh cintercession for us with dgroanings which cannot be uttered.
  3. I would suggest that placing limits on what God can do is not something that you will find profitable.
  4. If I might be so bold as to suggest that he is saying the country itself needs the prays. Here in the UK we have the same need, the UK is deeply divided. Simply majorities do not a nation make. Divided countries are a bad no matter what the cause. We look to leaders to unite us, however it is better for countries to heal themselves with God's help so that the citizens change, then they put the country first rather than their own personal interests.
  5. Let us not forget he is also the Acting President of the Twelve.
  6. We had a new Bishopric two months ago. The Bishop and the 1st council both have beards!
  7. Well after staring at the light switches in the left hand side of the picture I can tell you for sure this picture is not taken in England. We do not have those types of light switches in England. Plus a light switch in England you press the bottom of the rocker in to turn on, it is the reverse from North America where you flip the switch up.
  8. This is Spinal Tap Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and... Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten? Nigel Tufnel: Exactly. Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder? Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where? Marty DiBergi: I don't know. Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do? Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven. Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder. Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder? Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.
  9. Cinepro for starters I believe you to be honest. Having said that my reaction to this is WHAT!!!!! Oh well it is good you have stunned me, now I know what the brothers in Elders Quorum felt last week when I said it was inspired that President Nelson listed the Temple Recommend Questions in conference so that no one could tamper with them. They all looked stunned. I would ask where this Jacket and Sweater place is, but support you in not saying. Sometimes things can get really crazy!!!
  10. Sorry I did not make it clear. I meant the Church itself getting involved in political things, propositions, supreme court actions etc....
  11. I have never lived in America. I have always wondered why the Church there is so much more political than other countries. They only thing I can understand was the early Church was not protected by the government from lawlessness. Then the law was after them for polygamy. I am looking for reasons but not excuses.
  12. What I see in the UK is that both the people and the government are going in different directions. A disturbing example is the government combines three childhood vaccines into one to save money so the people responded with anti vaccines movements. (perhaps what anti vaccine feeling was already there was amplified by the government combining the three). The point is the country cannot function without trust. The people need to go easier and the government needs to show that trust is sacred. So the first question show be will combining three vaccines erode trust, once that is dealt with then look at any cost savings.
  13. Please do not be offended. The fault maybe mine. I do not understand your post. I will come at it from what I believe. Growing up I was failed by those in authority over me in major ways. Not the Church as I joined at 17 years old. Now as an adult I hate relying on the government for anything. Sadly I do understand that some changes in society need to come from government. This makes me despair and I must admit with some shame to having given up on getting good government here in the western nations. So I will settle for government that works, having settled just for what works even that now seems to be too much to expect. I look to building Zion as a last hope. We almost waste time listing the problems in society because we cannot find the will to make solutions work. You know the idea about studying history so that we do not repeat it. That does not work because every new generation thinks they know better and can make things work that in the past have failed. The only thing that I am proud of my post war baby boomer generation is that we have not had World War Three. Even this maybe reaching too far and is perhaps only due to Nuclear Weapons.
  14. My best loved scripture about this topic. Anyone care to explain what "the Gods had not appointed unto Adam his reckoning" means. Okay we can say that Adam was on Kolob time, so is that part of the fall to be on earth time??? Abraham 5:13 https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/scriptures/pgp/abr/5?id=p13&lang=eng#p13
  15. Just a question from afar! Is this not taken care of by the Church having stated that you can get married outside the Temple then be sealed right away. Could not the Church say they no longer perform marriages just sealings that are purely religious.
