    MormonLeaks does not break the law

    Yes but I think the following quote applies: "What you do speaks so loudly, I can't hear what you're saying." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
  2. The song doesn't say anything about his grave being empty or that he is exalted yet. We only know that he is in heaven now (meaning Spirit world) with the other prophets. Some of the words are written in future perfect or prophetic perfect tense; a way of referring to a person's future position as if it already exists and then comparing that person to himself in that future roll (like Joseph being a God)

    MormonLeaks does not break the law

    Pearls and swine, my friend. And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead." Matthew 17:9; see also, Mark 1:43-44, Mark 5:43, Mark 7:36, Mark 9:9, Matt 9:30, etc. That doesn't sound like transparency to me. Here's another one. In John 16:12 Jesus said this to His apostles, " I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now." He was even hiding things from His own Apostles.
  4. I was mostly referring specifically to Joseph Smith since he is the head prophet of our dispensation.

    Cain's offering

    I think the mark was obviously a form of protection so that when people saw it they would know not to kill him. But we have no certain idea of what that mark was.

    The Church Has Spoken on Immigration Policy

    Funny that the statement made by the church came out only a few hours after this trib commentary. Commentary: The LDS Church’s silence on Trump’s family separation policy is deafening Never mind.
  7. Jesus said: "Ye [the apostles] are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Luke 22:28-30; see also Matthew 19:28.) Since Joseph Smith was also called as an apostle and prophet (see D&C 21:1), and is the head prophet of this dispensation, would he not also perhaps play a role in the final judgment the same as Peter, James, John, and others?
  8. According to a new release, “National anthems will not be included in the printed hymnbooks.”
  9. I guess because he hasn't found them yet ?
  10. I think mostly outsiders and exMormons do most of the complaining. It should stay in. It has one of the few more lively and fun melodies to sing that are in the book.

    Maybe a mission isn't for everyone

    It's also not for everyone just for health reasons. This doesn't really apply today but back in the late 60s and early 70s there were many who used a mission as a way of dodging the draft. I had a couple of those for companions who simply did not really want to be there, but they did not want to go to Vietnam more than not wanting to go on a mission. If there hadn't been that war they would have just been inactive members who no one expected would serve a mission. So it's not like they had that pressure on them to go.

    Pres. Richards and no period in his name

    I had a great uncle who's first name was Aitch, not H, but Aitch. People thought he only wanted to be called by his first or last initial.
  13. What traditional Christians taught in the first century is still the same as today , while Mormonism is quite different . President , First and second Counselors, Elder Quorum Presidents, Relief Society Presidents, Wards, Ward Clerks, Stake Presidents, Stake High Councilmen, Regional Representatives ,Sunbeams, Boy scouts, Mia-maids, Temple Recorders, etc. Well now you are talking about organizational differences. I am referring to the earlier posts about the concept of the Godhead and you quote Penrose who I have also quoted to show that he taught nothing different than what we do today. Why are you pulling statements out of context from things he said?
  14. Josh, your responses to people's posts just don't make any sense. What are you trying to say that might be different from what the current church doctrines teach today?
  15. President Charles W Penrose at general Conference did say that and since it agrees with Traditional Christianity I like it Here is something else Elder Penrose said: "We worship God the Father—first person in the Trinity; in the name of the Son, Jesus Christ—second person in the Trinity; under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Ghost—third person in the Trinity, bearing witness of the Father and the Son. These constitute the Godhead, and are ONE. Not one person, but one in perfect unison of mind, spirit, purpose and action, as all the sons of God will be when exalted unto the perfection of "the gods." Each of the Divine beings in the Holy Trinity is separate and distinct from the others. The Father has a body of flesh and bones, the Son also, but the Holy Ghost is a "personage of spirit" (Doc. and Cov. 130). In their personality neither of them can be in more than one place at one time, no matter how speedily or by what means he can move through illimitable space." (Improvement Era 1914) This doesn't really sound like the traditional Christianity understanding of the Trinity.
