  1. Also the characters that went with Martin had a translation. the ones we know about do not, so they are not the original characters.
  2. Whatever. You mean I brought light and truth to this man. yeah, I meek does not mean letting people control or abuse you.
  3. What would that have solved? but yesterday I got a phone call from him apologizing, he looked into the matter and found that I was right. now he wants me to show him how he can do it this way as well, I made an enemy into an friend.
  4. Maby shakedown was the wrong word but what would you call it. I talked to the bishop over the phone , explained how it works and why I prefer to do it this way,(I don’t need people knowing how much money I make), then he drives over to my house, asking if he can see my receipt. I told him no and he got bent out of shape. I feel bad for you guys that had people show up last day of the year. we chose November 1st as our last day to pay tithing. Any thing made in December we rolled over into next year’s numbers.
  5. Every time I get a new Bishop I have to explain to them that I pay my tithing to the church directly, where they are not able to see how much I gave, for privacy reason. then they go off trying to shake me down. sorry just a bit of a rant.
  6. If the prayer is said with real feelings then your good. when they turn to just empty words then it time for self reflection
  7. Read the book though it was great. I remember reading journals from past leaders and them talking about stories that were from the Book of Mormon but not the current Book of Mormon and thought wouldn’t it be cool to gather all those stories to help us understand the lost pages. Don did a great job in doing just that. can’t wait to to read the next book.
  8. The practice of the presiding authority receiving the sacrament first started in the 1930 or 40s. from a talk given in general conference.
  9. Truthfully, I don’t care who takes it first. I have little children so I bless and pass. i bless it then pass it to everyone.
  10. Thanks for posting this, I’ll take a look. i love Jesus movies, some are better then others. my favorite is the Jesus film.
  11. I always thought it was 42? going by the number ? Marks. anyways love the chapter study it often.
  12. Not sure. Finding it hard to believe all the options that are being taught about the scriptures that are just opinions. telling people that the sacrament is a saving ordinance is not correct, because if that were true, then all those bishops that keep people from partaking of it are condemning them to hell. I find it hard to believe That we must put our trust and salvation in the hands of sinful men, when we are only to put our trust in the one who was sinless.
  13. Repenting of your sins does not save you it is your faith in Christ that saves you. the sacrament is a way to remember the Covenants you have made.
  14. Here you go. also this talk is the reason the presiding officer gets the sacrament first, if you ever wondered why. The Lord's Sacrament President David O. McKay Second Counselor in the First Presidency David O. McKay, Conference Report, April1946, pp. 111-117 When, on one occasion, the Prophet Joseph Smith was asked the meaning of the strength of Zion, he replied: The strength of Zion is to put on the power of the priesthood D&C 113:7-8 You, brethren, radiate that strength tonight. No one can be in your presence as the
  15. Have you sisters read the scriptures the church has asked you to read? To the sisters: Study prayerfully about the restoration of the priesthood and how to draw upon that power, beginning with reading Doctrine and Covenants sections 25, 84, and 107. Is it going to happen? the president said a special announcement.
