  1. The scriptures testify that the great and terrible period of tribulation that was prophesied by the Savior — the worse period of tribulation for the saints of God that ever was or ever will be — is going to inevitably take place at some point in time. Speaking of this time of terrible tribulation the Savior declared that the only thing that will save the people of God at that day will be his Second Coming when he will rescue his people by utterly destroying the wicked at his coming. As far back as 1988, President Benson warned the Church that the gigantic worldwide secret combination, pro
  2. If you’d ever read the Book of Mormon, you would know Latter-Day Saints believe the transgression Of Adam and Eve caused physical and spiritual death to enter the world, and that only through the infinite and eternal atoning sacrifice of Christ can mankind be redeemed from physical and spiritual death... 6 For as adeath hath passed upon all men, to fulfil the merciful bplan of the great Creator, there must needs be a power of cresurrection, and the resurrection must needs come unto man by reason of the dfall; and the fall came by reason of etransgression; and because man became fallen the
  3. I envision scenes at the time of the Final Judgement — when all truth pertaining to mortality is laid bare and nothing is hid from view — when those who were same sex attracted on earth sorrowfully approach the Church member friends who Ignored the teachings of the prophets and encouraged them to continue acting out on their homosexual impulses against the most solemn counsel of the Lord’s anointed. I imagine these souls lamenting that they wish their member friends who thought they were being kind and charitable when they said they were doing nothing wrong had heeded the warnings of the proph
  4. I believe that Christ did indeed need the ordinance of baptism just as much as we all do, and this in order to continue to grow spiritually unto eternal perfection. For without his faithful submission to the ordinance of baptism he would have sinned and his spiritual progress would have come to a halt. It’s no mere happenstance that the Holy Ghost descended upon him at the time of his baptism, for his reception of the fulness of the gift of the Holy Ghost at that time was given in response to his humility in the acknowledgment that without the constant indwelling of his Father‘s knowledge
  5. He’s saying that though God indeed was from eternity, and that there never was a time when there was no God, the personage we call our God and Father grew into that role in much the same way Christ grew in wisdom, knowledge and stature, while on earth, until he, too, became perfect. The point you’re missing is that the same uncreated divine spirit of love, light, truth, and power that animates Christ can, by the divine right of joint heirship, also dwell in eternal fulness within his sons and daughters. And if as joint heirs they are filled with the same eternal fulness of divine power, t
  6. First of all, the Book of Mormon clearly and unambiguously teaches that God has existed from all eternity, and that there never was a time when there was no God. In fact, the Book of Mormon asserts that nothing at all could exist if there were no God... So In the theology of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, God always was and always will be. Secondly, if the same everlasting God chooses to fill one of his children, as a joint heir with Christ, with the eternal fulness of His perfect, uncreated Spirit of divine love, intelligence, wisdom and power, there is no reason at all
  7. All incorrect. The reason why you are confused is because the individuals who wrote those things are also confused or fail to understand their own scriptures. Carefully read and ponder Doctrine and Covenants 138 for the last scriptural word (so far) on the subject. If you don’t carefully read and ponder 138, please don’t bother to get back to me because all the answers you’re seeking are found in that profound and glorious portion of scripture.
  8. First of all, the New Testament is quite literally filled with admonitions for the followers of Christ to conform their lives to the will of God, and that God expects them to do so. Next, the reason why sin is so deadly to the spirit is that God is morally bound to punish sin because he cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance. The wages of sin is spiritual death and there are no exceptions to that fixed and inflexible law of divine justice. The only way anyone can escape God’s retributive justice when they commit sin is for them to exercise faith in Christ as Saviour and R
  9. And if you read my second post you’ll realize I agree with you and beat you to the point.
  10. I believe there will be many who will also have died without the gospel law, but in their case they will inherit celestial glory because of the demonstration of extraordinary valor to the cause of Christ while in the spirit world. These souls will actually prove themselves worthy of celestial glory while sojourning in the spirit world after the death of their mortal body. In other words, the primary way it will be known that they would have fully embraced the gospel if they had heard it in the flesh will be by observing how valiantly they respond to the message of salvation and the gospel law
  11. Why is it that you make the assertion the inheritors of the terrestrial kingdom “refuse to accept the gospel Jesus Christ“ when Doctrine and Covenants 76 clearly says otherwise? 72 Behold, these are they who died without law; 73 And also they who are the spirits of men kept in prison, whom the Son visited, and preached the gospel unto them, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh; 74 Who received not the testimony of Jesus in the flesh, BUT AFTERWARDS RECEIVED IT. (Doctrine and Covenants 76)
  12. If human babies in the womb aren’t alive, how is it possible that they are able to continually grow and develop in maturity until eventual birth? Are you entertaining the idea that a dead human being can grow and develop as if it’s alive, and then at some point it its development it passes from a state of only appearing to be alive to actually being alive?
  13. The mass slaughter of 62 million innocent unborn sons and daughters of God is a lesser sin than poverty? You really believe this? Wouldn’t you agree that sexual promiscuity is the real root of the abortion problem?
  14. I’m wondering how it’s possible to have genuine, life transforming faith in a religion when it’s most important truth claims turn out to be nothing but an exceedingly long string of elaborate lies. Perhaps it’s analogous to a loving wife who discovers her husband of many years has been a serial cheater whose been unfaithful since before they were married. But she mulls it over and eventually decides to not confront him on the issue and decides it’s best to spend the rest of her life pretending she didn’t learn the truth because she’s too emotionally attached and dependent on her “husband” to l
