  1. Actually hasmat did come because diesel fuel was also spilled. Hmmm Diesel fuel + Light beer. That's what I call a mixed drink.
  2. Truck spills beer in church parking lot "A semi-truck carrying Bud Lite beer spilled its load Thursday in a parking lot owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Sgt. Jason Neilsen with the Sandy Police Department says the semi was heading northbound on 1300 East. At the same time, a pickup heading westbound on 11400 South ran a red light at the intersection. The pickup hit the semi, causing it to roll off the road and into the church parking lot. "The driver of the semi was transported to the hospital with minor injuries, according to Neilsen. Hazmat was called to the scene because diesel fuel spilled onto the pavement." Well at least they can be fairly certain it won't be stolen by church goers. 🙂
  3. Only if they happen to be at Disneyland when you ask them. Depends on your definition of "happy" and "people". It's all relative to each person's personality and situation.
  4. I believe our leaders have received revelation on what they tell us; it just isn't recorded in the scriptures, but is recorded in other places. I am not going to ignore what they say simply because it isn't in the scriptures. If we don't follow what they tell us what good are they to us? Of course some things have to evolve over time as the world changes and evolves. We have to keep up with it to know what to do to prevent ourselves from putting in jeopardy our eternal lives.
  5. It is to some degree it is obedience for obedience sake. It's part of our test in this life. But I don't consider it blind obedience. It's called having faith and trusting in God. There are plenty of times in the scriptures where people obeyed, not know how they were going to do something but they trusted in God and did it anyway. When Nephi was commanded to get the plates of Brass: "I, Nephi, crept into the city and went forth towards the house of Laban. And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do. (1 Nephi 4: 5-6) He had no knowledge of how he was going to do this but he obeyed anyway and trusted that God had a reason for him to do it.
  6. Maybe not everything but I get the spirit of what you are saying. We all really just need to put our lists aside and submit ourselves to the idea that following the principle is a test of our willingness to obey the council of the prophets and trust in the promise made to us If we do so. We will "find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures; And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint." (D&C 89: 19-20)

    Worthy

    The "worthy" word makes me squirm sometimes when they ask it. How about this? "Do you feel you are prepared and qualify to participate in temple ordinances?"
  8. But living the word of wisdom has everything to do with what our prophets are telling us today. And my conscience tells me to follow their advice.
  9. They did not have the word of wisdom like we do now from current prophets. So what if you are severely allergic to something someone serves you, do you take it anyway and hope you don't die? I think it's easy enough in our time and culture to just thank the host and ask for something else to drink.
  10. There are some medical reasons which have already been mentioned. But that doesn't change the fact that it is against the Word of Wisdom. The Word of wisdom is also a test of our willingness to obey. I have a hard time understanding why some members feel they need to drink things(like tea) that the Word of Wisdom proscribes. There are just a few things specified in the word of wisdom and there are so many other things that one can drink instead. If someone only wants to drink it because they like the taste, can't they find something else they can like so they don't have to worry about breaking the word of wisdom?

  12. Yep I wonder how many members decided to drink it and now have to quit.?
  13. President Joseph F. Smith taught that the Lord did not insist on strict compliance to the Word of Wisdom in the early years in order to allow a generation addicted to noxious substances some years to discard bad habits. That was nice of Him to do that. No such luck for us since we have been taught all along not to imbibe.
  14. Based on the evidence from some studies, the WHO has concluded that drinking hot beverages (anything about 149°F) is linked to a higher risk for esophagus cancer.
  15. Yes, but why wouldn't hot cocoa, postum, pero/caro, herbal tea, etc? Yes green tea should be avoided too. The idea is to not take anything into our bodies that would be harmful or addictive.
