  1. Is there a middle way?

    No such thing as a "middle way" that leads anywhere promising. Everything is black and white and no one is perfect.
  2. Instead of slippery slope, I think it's a way to keep apostates busy and thinking progress is being made without actually letting them get anywhere.
  3. Love and peace among the members

    No priesthood quorum is complete without the occasional donnybrook to keep the blood flowing, the mind sharp, and the knees bent.
  4. No Death Before the Fall?

    Fine thank you. And you?
  5. By Biblical comparison alone, the LDS Church is already THE Orthodoxy.
  6. No Death Before the Fall?

    Nephi 2:22 applies the state of no death begins after the creation in finished; it is not applied to the creative state. Also, thinking of a timeline: Creation/Evolution/Death---> Garden state of no death ---> The Fall ----> Evolution and Death continues ....claiming that there was no death before the Fall is still a true statement. It's a bit more complex to try and tidy up all the details, but one can also have a localized garden state of no death, with death and evolution occurring all around it.
  7. Strange have been the anti-Mormon wanderings within CRI; from Walter Martin to Hank Hanegraff: Interesting that he went back to early Christianity. Also worthy of notation are his new-found critics' emphasis on the authority of scripture when the Bible itself refers instead to the authority of the prophets and their ability to interpret scripture over the the lack of the general public's ability and authority to do so.
  8. Just another Mormon Troglodyte?

    I don't hate anything. Tenure is wrong though because it's unaccountable.
  9. Just another Mormon Troglodyte?

    Only if it's the tenured ivory tower variety would such a destination be automatic. There doesn't have to be a school or institution for this variety to exist. It could be a website with low quality water and electrical hookups for example....
  10. MD&D Posters You'd Most Like to Meet IRL

    No it's not. For example, the Nazi Party is a Socialist party.
  11. Coming late to the question....I would say no advancement possible beyond the degree of glory classification one achieves. The Second Law of Thermodynamics prevents it. There is no more available energy from the Atonement and entropy sets in. Either one breaks the barrier of relativity in the Judgement, or not at all and one's progress becomes asymptotic.
  12. Seems to me that one should establish water rights and resources before one builds.
