  1. Bishops and stake presidents are called upon to be judges. Thankfully the rest of us aren't.
  2. On Sundays we're asked to put aside our labors and do the Lord's work. He promises to help us with that work, but it still is work. I suspect for some people (not all) this has just been a 4 or 5 month vacation from that sort of work.
  3. While I'm not one to stay in a suit any longer than I have to, from what you've described here it's sounding like, for some people, that sabbath has become just like other days.
  4. D. 18-25 year old male with too many beers in him.
  5. How would someone who knows nothing about vaccines (like myself) be able to make a choice as to which one was best?
  6. That kind of reminds me of this from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." King Arthur: I am your king. Peasant Woman: Well, I didn't vote for you. King Arthur: You don't vote for kings. Peasant Woman: Well, how'd you become king, then? [Angelic music plays... ] King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king. Dennis the Peasant: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. Arthur: Be quiet! Dennis the Peasant: You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
  7. That's a good thing, life and kindness have tremendous value. But if there is no God and no revelation then the Book of Mormon may as well have been written by Dale Carnegie or one of the modern self-help gurus. Probably it has even less value than one of those books as I see little value in a book whose purpose if to teach faith in Christ if there is no Christ.
  8. What are my assumptions? If it's that the events in the Book of Mormon really did take place?
  9. How will genuine analysis help you know whether or not over 2500 years ago in Jerusalem Nephi was commanded by God to slay Laban or not? How do you analyze whether or not someone received revelation?
  10. I think we're asked to forgive those who've sinned against us. I don't see any of Laban's sins as being against me, therefore there's nothing to forgive. I believe that Nephi's actions were commanded by God, therefore there is no sin and no forgiveness required by anyone.
