  1. Perhaps, It seems to be Peter who says it.
  2. I am not trying to be difficult and really do not know the answer. If you search the new testament on the word tree there are (about) four entries that say Jesus was hung on a tree. Anybody have any ideas on this?
  3. My understanding (I could be all wrong) is that a prophecy should fulfil a purpose. Such as those foretelling the coming of Christ's birth etc.. You want warnings or broad strokes there are plenty in the scriptures about the latter days. So let us take a specific example such as the super volcano in yellowstone national park. when that goes the predictions are for at least 20 feet of ash in Salt Lake City. So the Lord wants to warn the people about the volcano and the President speaks to soon about the event then people will forget. Sometimes to be a life saving warning it must not be to far in advance. No big prophecies right now maybe noting big about to go on IMO.
  4. Yeah, let's get some of the bad and ugly stuff out of the way! I know for sure that I am not as good a car driver as I used to be - since my ability's gone down I have to rely on my experience more than before. My night vision is shot, so I avoid driving at night as much as possible and do not enjoy it at all. Car journeys longer than about an hour are more difficult just because I get sore when sitting down longer than that. This is not me being grumpy about these things, but trying to be honest with younger people.
  5. I am sorry about the title I could not resist. Well I am most certainly over 50 for sure. I searched this board for old age and other related age terms with no hits. I understand that at this point in history there are less older people using computers because they did not grow up with them. So YES PLEASE post the good things about being older and also the bad and ugly things. If you are not yet 50 or over PLEASE post your observations of those over 50. I will post as I can. Thank you to all.
  6. I was about to explain carefully what to do, but then remembered my vow of silence.
  7. Wow I have never thought or heard this idea, very impressive indeed. Is this your own concept?
  8. So much history just vanishing, so tragic. The very lastest reports say that they may not be able to save the building, they are focusing on saving the Art.
  9. You mean created first spiritually? A finite number of spirits .would be reasonable but finite is really not a Godly concept it is much more human way of seeing. Less concerned when a species goes extinct? No not really because there is so much evidence that peoples mismangnement and downright not caring is causing present extinctions.
  10. I was moved by your post. We naturally look at the present as human beings and project that into the future. The scriptures testify that changes can occur from the present to have a better future. When the pain is great we despair and that is a very human trait. I will pray that Lord will show forth blessings to make manifest His mighty power of change and hope in your life
  11. When I first joined the Church I took an Institute course (I think I had to pay for the material in a huge binder) It very clearly stated that as members we are only bound by what the First Presidency states. This makes great sense to me and aligns with the Temple.
  12. I think you and I can have gotten forgiveness at times, but if we repeat offend then we have to repeat the process. I honestly do not know what you should be feeling. My struggles have brought me much grief.
  13. You could be very well correct, but saying that former kinds of sins returning and the suffering is still no small thing.
  14. Well my deepest thoughts are that true repentance is not repeating the sin ever again, so a permanet change. There are many scriptures that directly support this. However for myself I continue to struggle with the same problem. May the Lord have mercy on us and show the way to real change and to peace.
  15. Repenting or at least thinking I had and repeating the sin has plagued me for many years. Sorry that this is a hard scripture but you asked for quotes from the scriptures. D&C 82:7 7 And now, verily I say unto you, I, the Lord, will not lay any sin to your charge; go your ways and sin no more; but unto that soul who sinneth shall the former sins return, saith the Lord your God.
  16. Got to love Alberta the Canadian Utah!
  17. Children in my country of origin used to be seen as a source of wealth even a resource for the parents. Now things are turned around children are a cost and a burden. Well it turns out both concepts are wrong. Society projects value or lack of it on the unborn. Some things are so much simpler than we can imagine. That the world must have children is one of them. By the way your avatar picture is scary!
  18. CV75 as I read your post it struck me that perhaps for an audience there is no way of knowing (at the moment) whether the President is speaking as a Revelator or as a Seer. Does it matter, perhaps Presidents only use Seer obtained knowledge to guide and protect the Saints and never speak directly on those things. I am not sure, what say you.
  19. https://ldsscriptureteachings.org/2016/11/25/the-miracle-of-the-seagulls-and-the-states-goods-prophecy/ Half way down the page where there is a picture of Heber C. Kimball. Brigham was in the habit of saying: “Heber is my Prophet.”
  20. I only think this so IMO. Moses had Aaron use his staff to do wonders. It was the staff that Moses got from God but he had Aaron wield it. Heber C. Kimball seemed to wield the gift of prophecy on behalf of Brigham Young. Heber said some amazing things like state goods will be sold cheaply in Salt Lake City when they had a shortage of manufactured goods and it happened. He said many other things some far into the future. The scriptures say that the President of the Church can have all the Gifts of the Spirit and we assume that means in one man at the same time D&C 107: 92. I believe in the economy of heaven. If some gifts are present in the Apostles is it not easier for them to wield them on behalf of the President.
  21. I spend a lot of time being wrong about things. I have also been told that there will be no marriages performed after the resurrection. Anyone else can help out an old man (me), am I out to sea???
  22. Well there is a general type of member that seems to appear more often in congregations. I am not of the general type of member so have more trouble fitting in. Now all we know about most people at church is from their outward signs etc... I asked my wife the other day why most people do not like me, she said because they do not really know me. This is perhaps true or else my wife is very clever indeed.
  23. I have to say SORRY sometimes my fingers are quicker than the brain. It should have read "What we do NOT know is if when Joseph went to marry Emma the Lord said marry another." No attempt to fool you just poor typing and poor proof reading. Sorry again.
  24. What we do know is if when Joseph went to marry Emma the Lord said marry another. If this was the case than poor Joseph would of caused much suffering on himself and Emma. I know when I do not do what I should it causes suffering.
