  1. Is that like defining my 7 year old boy as a less-than-full-potential man? He'll grow up eventually.
  2. One element of faith. Faith in the existence of Christ vs a Knowledge. The Brother of Jared's faith was surpassed by his knowledge. But not in all aspects of his life. He still needed faith daily just as we do. Seeing visions doesn't solve the faith journey. We have dozens of examples that seeing is not superior to believing in faith.
  3. Fortunately if God intends you to know something this rule doesn't apply.
  4. "Before you joined this Church you stood on neutral ground. When the gospel was preached, good and evil were set before you. You could choose either or neither. There were two opposite masters inviting you to serve them. When you joined this Church you enlisted to serve God. When you did that you left the neutral ground, and you never can get back on to it. Should you forsake the Master you enlisted to serve, it will be by the instigation of the evil one, and you will follow his dictation and be his servant."
  5. There is a big difference between "progression between kingdoms" and "progression of kingdoms". The mistake is assuming any of the kingdoms are a fixed location/developmental level. Scripture is clear that those who don't make the Celestial Kingdom cannot go where God and Christ are worlds without end (D&C 76:112) However that doesn't mean they can receive future exaltation when the kingdom in which they dwell eventually progresses to a Celestial level. As long as they are steadily becoming more perfect they unavoidably will be become Celestial material one day. However the
  6. That's not reassuring when even the Church name usage, logo and usage of Mormon have been updated in recent years.
  7. Are they having one Sat Oct 3rd 6pm or is it another special combined meeting?
  8. I consider such ideas to be very scary. New age ideas are today's paganism. Even when mixed with gospel themes.
  9. “The book of Revelation is one of the plainest books God ever caused to be written.” - Joseph Smith
  10. Did I miss something? That's not what your quote said at all.
  11. The rumor about Kirtland involved a large amount of wine consumed, not seizures or drugs.
  12. So then the question becomes "was it revealed by God"? If God said the Earth's temporal existence is 7000 years then it is. Period. If God didn't say it then we can discard those verses as uninspired, much as Joseph said about the Song if Solomon.
  13. 2,555,000,000 - the length of an eternity (creation) so I've heard attributed as a Joseph teaching. Explained as something to do with the rotation or orbit of Kolob. Interestingly the rotation of the milky way is estimated at exactly 10% of that.
