  1. To my knowledge, no reputable Shakespeare scholars really take the "authorship controversy" seriously. So that probably has little impact on the idea of Shakespeare's theoretical involvement with the KJV. The main thing, to my way of thinking, is that playwrights/poets were, in those days, considered to be distinctly lower-class citizens. The main reason women were not allowed to play women's parts in plays of the period is that it was considered a lewd, immoral act. Why, then, would anyone allow an actor/playwright like Shakespeare to participate in a task as sacred as translating God's
  2. There is no proof whatsoever that Shakespeare worked on the KJV. And considering the low opinion many cultural elites had of actors and playwrights at the time, it's EXTREMELY unlikely that anyone on the translation committee would have wanted someone like Shakespeare to work with them. Sure, monarchs like Elizabeth and James found Shakespeare's work entertaining, and they may have had an appreciation for the quality of his poetry, but leaders in the English Church would not have found him remotely competent when it came to handling God's Word. It's only our modern perspective on Shakespeare a
  3. Being non-LDS, I had to look this reference up. Glad I did...it made me chuckle!



  4. SO glad Fall has arrived! My favorite season, hands down...

  5. Had a lovely picnic at Percy Warner Park with my family this evening. Great weather for eating outdoors!


  6. @Dan McClellan I very much appreciated that you laid the appropriate groundwork in the Introduction of your paper, to remind the reader of the following: It seems to me, in the course of your paper, that you make a very compelling case for "after all we can do" in 2 Nephi 25:23 meaning "despite all we can do." Meanwhile, the passage from 2 Nephi seems to address, in its own way, the tension between Paul's emphasis on salvation by grace through faith and James's statement that "faith without works is dead." That tension has long troubled many followers of Christ, not the least of w
  7. A beautiful day in Nashville, TN!

  8. Glad to see I have access back again. I guess upgrades sometimes cause problems. Hopefully all the bugs will get worked out! Meanwhile, I guess I'll have to be more meticulous about my posts before I submit them, as it looks like editing is not possible ex post facto! (I think the mistake in the above meme is intentional...please read it with the intended irony.) UPDATE: Researching the "loss" of the Edit button in another thread, I found that you can edit your posts. When you click on the three little dots in the upper-right corner of your post, it gives you a menu which i
  9. I can't view any posts on the Forum! I browse the topics, but any topic I select, gives an error message. My profile works fine, but that's about it.

    Is there any way to report tech issues to the admins of this forum?

      I’ve “reported” your post.  Maybe that will get some attention.

      Thanks! I checked again, and I still can't access any posts. All I get is this error message...

      FWIW, I have also tried to access the Forums on my desktop PC (I had been using my laptop before). It still doesn't work...same results.

  10. For some reason I can't access any posts in the Forums. No matter what topic I click on, I get the following error message... I've tried reloading the page, I've tried logging out and logging back in, and I've tried it in a couple different browsers, with no success. HELP!!! (Is anyone else having this problem?)
  11. Rest in peace, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.


  12. Just for fun, here's one more handy online gospel harmony: https://biblehub.com/parallelgospels/ This one is not in chart form. It's a list of events with hyperlinks to the parallel passages.
  13. Looking forward to some Fall weather soon...hopefully.
