  1. Regarding this passage: “The arithmetic of this parable is chilling. The ten virgins obviously represent members of Christ’s Church, for all were invited to the wedding feast and all knew what was required to be admitted when the bridegroom came. But only half were ready when he came” (Dallin H. Oaks, “Preparation for the Second Coming,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2004, 8). Does this mean the 10 virgins are only members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and not of any other churches?
  2. I am Christian, but not a member of your church. When I read that article, it says the ten virgins are members of Christ's church (which I assume is only the LDS Church from other church teachings). Based on these words, it seems to be a literal 50%. “The arithmetic of this parable is chilling. The ten virgins obviously represent members of Christ’s Church, for all were invited to the wedding feast and all knew what was required to be admitted when the bridegroom came. But only half were ready when he came” (Dallin H. Oaks, “Preparation for the Second Coming,” Ensign or
  3. The Seminaries and Institutes of Religion Curriculum Services picked the title for that chapter. The parable cited was applied to the Second Coming of Christ.
  4. This is from Lesson 25 (Religion 250 manual). I had a question about these sections. 111 - “Of [the parable of the ten virgins], the Lord said, ‘And at that day, when I shall come in my glory, shall the parable be fulfilled which I spake concerning the ten virgins’ (D&C 45:56). “Given in the 25th chapter of Matthew, this parable contrasts the circumstances of the five foolish and the five wise virgins. All ten were invited to the wedding feast, but only half of them were prepared with oil in their lamps when the bridegroom came. The five who were prepared went
  5. This is from Lesson 22 (Religion 250 manual). "Our entire case as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints rests on the validity of this glorious First Vision. ... Nothing on which we base our doctrine, nothing we teach, nothing we live by is of greater importance than this initial declaration. I submit that if Joseph Smith talked with God the Father and His Beloved Son, then all else of which he spoke is true". Examining the logic of this statement, if Joseph Smith's teaching of God not being from everlasting to everlasting and that he was a man who
  6. Speaking of a future time, what does D&C 132:20 mean when it says "then shall they be gods"?
  7. The Coming of the Lord by Gerald N Lund is very good. https://www.amazon.com/Coming-Lord-Gerald-N-Lund/dp/1590382080 "Deliberately, avoiding the speculation common to many books on this topic, Elder Lund ties his commentary to significant scriptural passages and authoritative commentary by modern prophets"
  8. I have seen some temples without the Moroni statue. Why is that?
  9. I posted this in another section and @Calm suggested I post in this forum to gain more visibility. I found this mentioned at https://speeches.byu.edu/talks/tad-r-callister/our-identity-and-our-destiny/ by Tad R. Callister, Of the Presidency of the Seventy back on August 14, 2012 In one segment he said "To this He readily acknowledged that He was and declared that they should be likewise: "Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?" (John 10:32–34; emphasis added). In other words, He said not only am I a god, but all of you are potential gods. He was referring to
  10. How is the word 'ensign' in 2 Nephi 15:21 and 2 Nephi 21:10,12 translated in other languages of the Book of Mormon?
  11. Why did they pick the word 'ensign' in the first place to name the magazine and what has changed since then?
  12. Are they going to replace the 3 references to ensign in the Book of Mormon with liahona?
