  1. Here is the correct link https://media.ldscdn.org/pdf/manuals/come-follow-me-for-individuals-and-families-book-of-mormon-2020/individuals-and-families-book-of-mormon-2020-large-print-eng.pdf
  2. I found a mention in one of our church manuals https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/new-testament-student-manual/philippians-and-colossians/chapter-45-philippians-and-colossians?lang=eng "Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God the Eternal Father. He is our Creator. He is our Teacher. He is our Savior. His atonement paid for the sin of Adam and won victory over death, assuring resurrection and immortality for all men" What specific sin of Adam? Why no reference to Eve's sin?
  3. My family and I have been reading this manual for the last few weeks. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/come-follow-me-for-individuals-and-families-book-of-mormon-2020/intro?lang=eng I had a question on these passages. 256 - Corianton believed that punishment for sins was not fair (see Alma 42:1). But Alma taught that there is a way to escape from the "state of misery" that sin puts us in. What sin put Adam and Eve in their state of misery? 258 - How can we use our "probationary time" on earth to become more like the Savior? Why isn't the spirit world considered a probationary time to become like Jesus when they can accept ordinances performed for them? Peter
  4. The introduction to this section says "Revelation given to Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Hiram, Ohio, about March 1832"
  5. https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/biblical-topics/bible-versions-and-translations/the-gospel-of-thomas-114-sayings-of-jesus/ No wonder it wasn't part of canon.
  6. I can't interpret 77:6 in another way than literal.
  7. The book is written from an LDS perspective about symbols used in our temple.
  8. I am aware of the proxy work of D&C 138 but tend to believe Alma 5:24-25, 28 and Alma 34:32-35 more.
  9. You might not have seen the parts of the Masonic prayer I mentioned earlier. Strengthened in his labors here by faith in God, and confident of expectation of immortality, he has sought admission to the Celestial Lodge above.
  10. I found this Masonic prayer at https://online.ucpress.edu/nr/article-pdf/4/1/28/317830/nr_2000_4_1_28.pdf My Brethren, the roll of the workmen has been called, and one Master Mason has not answered to his name. He has laid down the working tools of the Craft and with them he has left that mortal part for which he no longer has use. His labors here below have taught him to divest his heart and conscience of the vices and superfluities of life, thereby fitting his mind as a living stone for that spiritual building - that house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. Strengthened in his labors here by faith in God, and confident of expectation of immortality, he has sought admission to the Celestial Lodge above. Amen Masonry teaches the Celestial Lodge is the hope for muslims, hindus, bahais, who don't accept Jesus as Savior.
  11. There's a good book about this. Celestial Symbols - Symbolism in Doctrine, Religious Tradition and Temple Architecture by Allen H. Barber
  12. If they are protected as well as the Dead Sea Scrolls, then yes.
  13. Apart from the cross, we have other symbols. Beehives, moonstones, sunstones, the all-seeing eye, and five-pointed pentagrams are used as decorations on both the Salt Lake City and Nauvoo temple.
  14. Ok, If I assume you are one of the little children , what is your kingdom that you had before you came to Earth?
