  1. Have you read any of my post, do you think I'm worried about what anyone thinks of me. First I cuss on here, second I post songs by Slipknot, third I am very blunt and to the point. I've dealt with a lot of older Mormon men who don't like me, you won't be the first to try and change my lovely personality. But I appreciate your opinion, thank you for responding. PS bukowski, I've never been the first guy someone calls when they need to give a priesthood blessing, usually I'm the last๐Ÿ˜, kind of, if all else fails, call Mike๐Ÿ˜‚. But, if someone is hitting on your wife, or mes
  2. If I have my Mormon doctrine correct, isn't the only thing about us that's eternal is our intelligence? Our spirit was formed in heaven, our mortal body here on Earth, but our intelligence has existed eternally, just as heavenly fathers. So it makes sense to me that "hell" could be the state of our mind/intelligence. Maybe hell would be not having the veil lifted resulting in never receiving further knowledge.
  3. As I look around and take in everything that probably went in to making a flower, tree, animals, rivers, the ocean, the atmosphere and etc, there's so much science involved, if we do progress after death much of our time is probably spent learning how to organize life. I just don't see God sticking his stubborn children on a planet until they learn their lesson. Must be a better solution.
  4. After final judgement hell. I was always taught it was an actual physical place. You remember the pictures of the glories of heaven and hell, they're always depicted as planets. But the older I get, the more I interact with people, happy people, sad people, hurt people, abused people, the more I think "hell" and glories may be states of mind. Maybe the celestial kingdom is an eternal state of happiness, void of worry, jealousy, resentment, hatred and etc. With hell being a state of worry, jealousy, resentment and hatred. I think there's a good chance if there is life after our mortal
  5. Thanks Robert, I always learn a lot from your post.
  6. I just looked up the temperature in Antarctica, it's now -85 degrees Fahrenheit there. I guarantee after about 90 seconds in Antarctica, you would be wishing for 117f๐Ÿ˜. Maybe hell has already frozen over.
  7. When I was young I remember an old friend of my dad telling me hell would be here on Earth after the 1000 year reign of Jesus. I've also heard that hell is in a far off corner of the universe, in the center of the earth, in a black hole. Me personally, I think hell is a state of mind. I have no idea where we'll be while our mind is in this condition, but I doubt hell is actually a physical place.
  8. I agree, you are very intelligent. I was just telling my wife if I wasn't me I think I would want to be you. Maybe Oprah.
  9. I'm not talking about on here, I'm talking about life in general. In the past ten years or so "victimhood" and laziness has infected so many of our youth it's disgusting. In my profession, construction, I'm lucky to get someone under 30 years old to work a 40hour week for more than 2 weeks. They always seem to think the work is to hard or they can't deal with the stress. Back when I started construction 30 some years ago we could joke on each other, poked fun, called each other names. Now, you have to be careful not to "offend" someone if they're under 30 or so. Everyone seems to wan
  10. But what happens to us is always someone else's fault, making us a victim, don't you know that? Mentally, It's easier being a victim, that way, know matter what happens in our life, if we deem it negative, we can blame someone else and relieve our pain. Eazzzy peazzzzy Scott. You might want to look into that.
  11. Couple of weeks ago a board member posted about how critical race theory is the key to understanding how systematic racism works. The post got 5 upvotes. We are doomed as a society. Save your money, pay off your house and have somewhere your kids and grandkids can shelter. Because we are on the fast track to dismantling everything that is good about America and the train has no brakes.
  12. Here's another grest song you might like nuclearfuels
  13. Can all the true prophets be found in one organization/religion, or are they in multiple organizations/religions? Just wondering, I don't know that much about prophets outside my own church.
  14. Does that same logic apply to someone who says they have the "secret" to life after death, like a prophet? Let's say there's this church that claims they can help you live with God again, as long as you follow the "rules" should they be trusted?
  15. You're right, he could do a lot better.
  16. I haven't read the book your talking about but it sounds to me like what it probably is teaching is to make sure you're always progressing in life, don't let yourself sit still for to long, mentally or physically. For some, the physical aspect might be doing two pushups and for others it could be doing 200, it's not the amount you do, it's that you started and you don't quit, never quit, if you're the person doing the two pushups a day and can only do one in the morning and one at night, then do that, just don't quit. Doing those two pushups bleeds over into the mental aspect of the philosophy
  17. If I ever start a band I'm naming it "designated survivor", thanks for the idea! First I need to find some talent, I can barely whistle.
  18. First, welcome to the board. I'm guessing from what you said, you're probably somewhere around 28 to 33 years old, and now you have four kids and one is a newborn. Ok, that's a tuff situation to be in even with help from your husband, but you can get through this, plenty of couples do, so there is hope. I'm going to take a different approach by telling you what the women in my life would do if I was slacking at home by spending too much time away and not helping out around the house. Maybe you'll get a few ideas by seeing how they handle situations by taking a No Nonsense approach ๐Ÿ˜
  19. Kids all around the world go days without food and we have people here that get mad if little Timmy goes till 2:30 without a nutritious meal! We're doomed I tell ya, were doomed๐Ÿ˜‚.
  20. So like I said, I thought about what you said yesterday, about the people who promote the use of their products have done evil. Here's what I can't understand with what you're saying. Through the lense of Mormonism, we believe Heavenly Father has given Satan permission to tempt us while we're here on Earth, correct? If so, is Satan is using what God has given him to work with? Who made the cannabis plant, shrooms, and so on? I agree that people taking advantage of others by selling crack or meth is evil, but ultimately it's our decision to partake of any substance we put in our body.
