  1. The characters Martin Harris took to Prof. Anton- which part of the Book of Mormon are they? Any educated guesses by any of you or Nibley or Skousen or etc.?
  2. This one. Since His behavior doesn't change and He has chosen to obey eternal law, all we have to do is keep our part. I the Lord am bound when ye do what I say.... No?
  3. Thanks Calm. GOod point. Wouldn't God cease to be God if He didnt' follow eternal law and provide blessings for obedience to the law upon which that blessing is predicated? He can't not bless me just because I'm a jerk, can He?
  4. ...but to secure for ourselves and for others blessings that GOd is already willing (And obligated?) to grant but that are made conditional on our asking for them. We must first conceive of the greatness within ourselves, then pray to reach it. CHildren of God, gods ourselves and joint-heirs
  5. Oh I'm definitely the unjust. The thing is: God can't hold back blessings from you or me or anyone else, as long as we're obedient to the eternal law upon which it is predicated.
  6. You're funny. Line upon Line: D&C 130:20–21 www.churchofjesuschrist.org › new-era › 2010/10 › lin... 21 And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated. Irrevocably decreed. Irrevocably—unchangeably
  7. Your last paragraph summed it up better than my original question
  8. I think it's due to covid and it's different rates in different areas, POTUS telling the states that they're in charge of thier jurisdictions (perhaps due to diferent geography, demographics, health status, etc.). The most beautiful thing I've learned from church at home is how much I don't need to meet with my regular ward, in person, face to face, weekly or more often. The Spirit confirms truth to 2 people, same as 20 or 200
  9. Had an EQ lesson on these talks. Mostly the high priests couldn't stop talking about how their toxic interpretation (we're blessed and protected in all things forever based on the extent to which we keep the commandments; the more obedient we are, the more blessed, healthy, rich we are - none of which Elder Cook said, claimed or implied) of Elder Cook's address made it challenging for them to accept his admonitions. The idea that people in the CIty of Enoch were "born with it" (it being thier reighteousness vs. growing line upon line, precept on precept was a related question, semmin
  10. I don't have a problem with people who interpret the gospel different than I do. Where does the myth that everyone in a ward or EQ or RS must agree on a specific limited interpretation of the gospel topic being introduced? People who reply to others and say "that's what I take issue with," I don't get their comments. You take issue with someone interpreting something differently than you do? despite their different upbringing, history, etc? Seems odd
  11. THe fact that God cant' decide not to bless you or me, after our obedience, is a truly revolutionary fact.
