  1. Yes I remember the Jonah issue, but the signs leading to the end of the world are things that are going to happen. Christ is going to come again and the conditions leading up to that event are going to happen no matter what we do. I am just wondering why the proclamation is warning the world of things that are going to happen as if there is something all the people of world can do about it. I guess like you say we just have to look at it on an individual family basis, that if we take care of our own family and keep it together, then we will be spared the terrible events preceding the second coming.
  2. Well it didn't copy over, but I was wondering, if this is a true prophecy about the disintegration of the families, assuming they were true prophets who said this, who are we to try to stop it from happening? Are such prophecies definitely going to happen no matter what we do or do we have the option and the duty to try and stop it from happening?
  3. Most non-catholic Christians who display the cross emphasize the fact that it is an empty cross, representing the living resurrected Christ and His victory over death and the grave.
  4. Being over 50 (60) I have noticed that the bad isn't as bad as I though it was when younger. Experience with life has shown me that bad things have a way of working themselves out. Or at least I am not surprised as much when they happen and am able to be more patient in working them out and resolving them. Grand-kids are a really fun part of being over 50.
  5. I think we have to keep an open mind and a broad definition of the word Christian, which can mean anyone who believes in and tries to follow the teachings and principles of Christ as taught in the Bible. Also, "ye shall know them by their fruits" is another good indicator. All this regardless of which church they belong to.
  6. According to a news report: "Initial reports in the French press suggested that many of those pieces had already been removed last week during the renovations, and Finot said that the cathedral’s collection of relics and other sacred items, kept in the sacristry, were likely unharmed. “Normally there is no risk of things being burned,”
  7. It's hard to know sometimes when one is forgiven of sin but in our last conference Elder Callister said something that helped my understanding: "Some have asked, “But if I am forgiven, why do I still feel guilt?” Perhaps in God’s mercy the memory of that guilt is a warning, a spiritual “stop sign” of sorts that, at least for a time, cries out when additional temptations confront us: “Don’t go down that road. You know the pain it can bring.” In this sense, it serves as a protection, not a punishment."
  8. I don't know and neither do you, but I understand your opinion about it.
  9. How would you know if they have or have not already been doing this? Perhaps they have been praying about it but haven't gotten a definite answer yet?
  10. With regards to political change A Harvard study identified the precise reason protests are an effective way to cause political change. "A clever analysis by economists from Harvard University and Stockholm University finds that protests do in fact have a major influence on politics, just not in the way you might think. Their research shows that protest does not work because big crowds send a signal to policy-makers—rather, it’s because protests get people politically activated." So perhaps while protests might not provoke church leaders into changing something, they might get members better informed of an issue and inspire them into getting involved in doing whatever they can about the issue.
  11. Hey if not now there will be plenty of time during the millennium to find your wife.
  12. Your posts are very much on topic.

  14. There was a building called an endowment house in Spring City, Utah that was built by Orson Hyde. The building is still standing at 85 West 300 South.
