  1. I remember back in the 70s how we were told to buy bags of wheat, which of course we never used, and this is what happened to it.
  2. Several interesting things happened on October 3 throughout the years: 1806 - Oliver Cowdery was born at Wells, Vermont, on October 3, 1806. 1847 - The first stake in Utah, the Salt Lake stake, is organized. 1875 - U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant arrives in Salt Lake City, becoming the first president to visit Utah. 1881 - Orson Pratt died on October 3 1881 in Salt Lake City. He had married seven wives and fathered forty-five children. 1910 - Emmeline B. Wells is called as the fifth general president of the Relief Society. 1918 - On October 3, 1918 President Joseph F. Smith
  3. Could be a woman with short hair, but that was not my first impression. It would be interesting to ask the artist what the intention was.
  4. I got the following post on Facebook from the Church related to Elder Cooks talk. Interesting that they would include rather prominently what looks like a gay couple. I guess they want to make sure they include all types of people, which is a good thing.
  5. Elder Cook said our church culture comes from the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not a judaic or gentile culture. while we rejoice in distinctive cultures we should leave behind aspects of those cultures that conflict with the gospel He mentioned that paul wanted the saints to leave behind cultural impediments that are not consistent with the Gospel. I am wondering what specific cultural aspects he is talking about.
  6. In 1981 he said: "An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence. Because God can be relegated to remote times and places and to ultimate causes, we would have to know a great deal more about the universe than we do now to be sure that no such God exists." (Head, Tom, ed. (2006). Conversations with Carl Sagan (1st ed.)
  7. Searching for Hope? At October 2020 General Conference, Truth and Inspiration Will Be Center Stage "Regardless of your religious affiliation (or lack thereof), we invite you to make the October 2020 general conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints a part of your search for hope and peace in these troubled times. Messages of truth and inspiration will be center stage." Can we speculate from that?
  8. Do you keep the law of chastity? That's all they should be asking. Back in the early 70' my Stake president ask about it in my missionary interview.
  9. Bravo Releases First ‘Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ Trailer These are "real" Salt Lake housewives? Riiiight 🙄 Bravo is taking us to Utah! The network just released the trailer for their upcoming reality series The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. The trailer introduces fans to the new ladies: Lisa Barlow, Mary Cosby, Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose, and Jen Shah. If you didn’t know, Salt Lake City is the global headquarters for Mormons, however, not all the women follow the religion. Meredith is Jewish, Mary is Pentecostal, and Lisa is “Jewish by he
  10. Good and evil are eternal principles but they may not be made evident at certain times. Just like polygamy is an eternal principle but we are not commanded to live it right now. Satan will be bound during the Millennium, but He and his angels will still exist and evil will still exist, but we will not experience it during the Millennium. However, during this time, people will still have their agency and may choose to do wrong things on their own.
  11. I worked with patients in a hospital for a few years and saw evidence of this happening just before someone died. One old guy near death and completely unresponsive suddenly raised his head, opened his eyes up and looked towards the end of his bed and got a big smile on his face as if he saw someone he knew then laid his head back down and took his last few breaths.
  12. "He said not only am I a god, but all of you are potential gods." When referring to "The" God of this earth one would use the capitalized form. When referring to gods in general and in the plural sense, as was done in this sentence (a god), the lower case "god" can be used. Psalms is referring to those who have the potential to become gods.
  13. Curses are not a completely foreign thing thing with the Church. Sounds a little like the dusting off of the feet type of curse: 15 And in whatsoever place ye shall enter, and they receive you not in my name, ye shall leave a cursing instead of a blessing, by casting off the dust of your feet against them as a testimony, and cleansing your feet by the wayside. 16 And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall lay their hands upon you by violence, ye shall command to be smitten in my name; and, behold, I will smite them according to your words, in mine own due time. (D&C 24: 15-16)
  14. Some temples like the Bountiful Temple actually have a lightning rod sticking out the top of Moroni's head. Is the Angel Moroni a lightning rod? Statue does what it's built to do
