  1. Do you believe in the 6 days of creation like Mosiah 13:16-19 teaches? "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; But the seventh day, the sabbath of the Lord thy God, thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is; wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it".
  2. What do you believe was the relationship between Adam and Eve before the fall?
  3. From how these devotionals explain the scripture, I would say patriarchy was not designed of God: https://livingtruth.ca/blogs/devotionals/helper https://livingtruth.ca/blogs/devotionals/the-fall-and-brokenness
  4. I wonder why, when the priest gives the eucharist to the recipients, he does not say "the body and blood of Christ". Instead, he only says "the body of Christ".
  5. Thank you. I never heard of this. Do you have an official Vatican teaching about it?
  6. @MiserereNobis @Saint Bonaventure For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, "This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me." In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes" (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me." (John 6:53-57). Consider also that these few men partake in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Why are parishioners who don't drink the wine (the blood) denied eternal life? Aside from them not having eternal life because they do not drink the blood, what does it mean that they don't proclaim the Lord's death till he comes because they do not drink the cup?
  7. Are Catholic women excluded from the holy/royal priesthood Peter wrote about? 1 Peter 2:5, 9 - Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
  8. Based on that, how is Jesus the first spirit child of heavenly parents?
  9. I saw this mentioned in Gospel Principles. "All spirits are in adult form. They were adults before their mortal existence, and they are in adult form after death, even if they die as infants or children".
  10. There is a passage which says "We have imagined and supposed that God was God from all eternity. I will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see". Do Latter-day Saints believe in a God who is God from all eternity?
  11. Do you still feel Elder W. Eugene Hansen is still mistaken in his Ensign article but Elder Packer is correct in his October 2010 GC sermon? Or do you view them both as incorrect?
  12. What are your thoughts on this fireside video by Glenn Rawson? https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?ref=watch_permalink&v=540430227499091 I also saw it on KSL. He made a reference to General Conference but I didn't see it on the church's April 2022 GC talks. Do you also consider it Joseph's greatest sermon or would your rate another as his greatest? Gale
  13. The topic of Birth Control at https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/gospel-topics/birth-control?lang=eng says "Decisions about birth control and the consequences of those decisions rest solely with each married couple". If a couple decides that two or three children are enough and then use birth control to prevent future pregnancies and successfully, what consequences do they face?
  14. Becoming a God and Savior of some other world if LDS theology allows for a female savior I suppose.
  15. Regarding this article: https://rsc.byu.edu/pearl-great-price-revelations-god/doctrine-firstborn-only-begotten "Where was there ever a father without first being a son?" (TPJS 373). Joseph Smith's answer to his own rhetorical question was, "Nowhere." As with any man, there was a time when God the Father was childless, when he had not yet begun the procreation of his spirit family. Consequently, the Godhead as we know it did not exist; there was no Son of God and no Holy Ghost. [2] [2] The spirit personage known as the Holy Ghost (D&C 130:22) was apparently begotten of the Father following the spirit birth of Jesus. Heber C. Kimball taught: "Well, let me tell you, the Holy Ghost is a man; he is one of the sons of our Father and our God; and he is that man that stood next to Jesus Christ, just as I stand by brother Brigham" (JD 5:179). Franklin D. Richards quoted Joseph Smith as saying that "the Holy Ghost is now in a state of Probation which if he should perform in righteousness he may pass through the same or a similar course of things that the Son has" (Ehat and Cook 245). What does that mean that the Holy Ghost will pass through the same or similar course that Jesus has? That he will take on human flesh and atone for the sins of some other world? Thank you, Gale
  16. How do you understand this passage: "For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors. And now, as I said unto you before, as ye have had so many witnesses, therefore, I beseech of you that ye do not procrastinate the day of your repentance until the end; for after this day of life, which is given us to prepare for eternity, behold, if we do not improve our time while in this life, then cometh the night of darkness wherein there can be no labor performed. Ye cannot say, when ye are brought to that awful crisis, that I will repent, that I will return to my God. Nay, ye cannot say this; for that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, that same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world. For behold, if ye have procrastinated the day of your repentance even until death, behold, ye have become subjected to the spirit of the devil, and he doth seal you his; therefore, the Spirit of the Lord hath withdrawn from you, and hath no place in you, and the devil hath all power over you; and this is the final state of the wicked"
  17. The LDS Church membership is about the same size as the Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists I think.
  18. What scripture or revelation says Jesus is a spirit child of heavenly parents who then became a God?
  19. In this analogy spoken by Mr. Uchtdorf (Second Conselor, First Presidency), he uses a poem about using an elephant to discuss aspects of truth. He says that each adherent expresses one thing about the animal that was partly in the right and all were in the wrong. Maybe instead of using an elephant in the cartoon, how about substituting Jesus Christ instead. Some people touch him and say he was a good man. Another touches him and says he was a good teacher. Others view him as a prophet, a lunatic, while others view him as Michael the Archangel. Still others view him as a spirit child of heavenly parents who progressed into becoming a God like all the Gods before him, and others behold him as the one and only always-existent eternal God. Do you believe the scriptures give us a picture which reveals the true nature of Christ? Gale
