  1. 2 Nephi 1:8 says "And behold, it is wisdom that this land should be kept as yet from the knowledge of other nations; for behold, many nations would overrun the land, that there would be no place for an inheritance". How small of an area is *this land* that there was a concern of there not being enough space for their inheritance when many nations learned of its location? Gale
  2. I read this in a General Conference talk. I am grateful for the testimony of our prophet, President Gordon B. Hinckley. On behalf of all members throughout the world, I express gratitude that he chose to follow the inspiration of the Lord and asked us to read the Book of Mormon. We have been abundantly blessed by his inspired counsel. Do we have a record of other Presidents before Gordon Hinckley following the inspiration of the Lord and asking members to read the Book of Mormon? Gale
  3. Mosiah 26:24-27 says, "For behold, in my name are they called; and if they know me they shall come forth, and shall have a place eternally at my right hand. And it shall come to pass that when the second trump shall sound then shall they that never knew me come forth and shall stand before me. And then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, that I am their Redeemer; but they would not be redeemed. And then I will confess unto them that I never knew them; and they shall depart into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. Where is the place that is at Christ's right hand? Why are those who know Jesus resurrected to be eternally at this place but those who don't know Jesus depart into everlasting fire? Thank you, Gale
  4. This reminds me of the little book "How Good is Good Enough?"
  5. I have heard reports of church services being videotaped. So it would be contrary to Communist China practice to allow a temple to be built without some form of surveillance (what happens inside or who goes in and out). That's why we don't have an accurate count of how many Christians there are in China because many are in non-monitored 'underground' churches so to speak. Talk of a Second Coming when Jesus will establish His kingdom is anathema to the Chinese government.
  6. Thanks. Do you have a decoder for that? 🙂
  7. I once asked a female missionary in person about the royal priesthood of believers (in 1 Peter 2:5,9) and she was not quite sure how to answer, so she said she would get back to me. She never did reply to my followup email.
  8. My question was not related to what you said, but I was just wondering if do you believe in the royal priesthood of believers (men and women) described in 1 Peter 2:5,9?
  9. What about fasting from other activities besides eating?
  10. Do you believe in the royal priesthood of believers (men and women) described in 1 Peter 2:5,9?
