Juniemoon – If you have a pastor, why aren’t you following the Bible.
Man is created in the Image and Likeness of God
Father, Son, Holy Ghost – Separate and distinct beings
Christ’s Church founded on Apostles, Prophets, divine revelation
Required ordinances – baptism by one with authority as entry into the Kingdom of God (of which Christ obtained to fulfill all righteousness)
Required authority – Holy Priesthood conferred on others by the laying on of hands by those called as was Aaron
Required guidance – Apostolic leadership was through Christ’s teachings and continual divine revelation
Missionary work teaching Christ’s doctrines and baptizing
Missionary work in the Spirit World initiated by Christ between His death and Resurrection as taught by Peter
Baptism in behalf of the dead for those who did not have a chance in this life yet must satisfy the demands of baptism for entering into the Kingdom of God
Establishment of the Lord’s House in the top of the mountains (last days – has happened)
Bringing forth of the everlasting gospel carried by an angel in heaven to be taught to the world (last days – has happened)
Joining of the Stick of Joseph and the Stick of Judah as two witnesses (last days – has happened)
Returning of Elijah to turn the children to their fathers (last days – has happened)
Other sheep (House of Israel) for Christ came unto His own
These are all biblical doctrines and principles followed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

If this is a representation of the so called “Christianity” to which The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is professed to not be a part of, I would concur and am thankful for it.

If 100% percent is completely certain, then what does 110% represent?

Correction – It is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It bears the name of He who leads the Church through divine revelation to Prophets and Apostles holding Christ’s Holy Priesthood. You know, the very organization, means of communication and authority to act in God’s name as taught by the Apostles (particularly Paul) in The New Testament of The Holy Bible.
As for the Book of Mormon – Another Testament of Jesus Christ, it is the everlasting gospel carried by the Angel in heaven to be taught to the whole world. It is the Stick of Joseph containing the words of Prophets included in the Other Sheep (for Christ came to His own people …. The House of Israel).
And what does The Book of Mormon teach……
26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins. (2 Nephi 25)
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is The Church of Jesus Christ restored in these latter-days. It is founded on Christ (divine) revelation, Apostles and Prophets (church leadership) and the Holy Priesthood (authority to act in Christ’s name and perform His holy ordinances). The Church follows the doctrines of The New Testament. We may not fall in line with the apostate view of Christianity, but we certainly adhere to that Christianity taught by Paul and the Apostles and eluded to by King Agrippa.

If you are not for God, then you are against Him. Whether you don’t believe in Him or you choose to fight against Him, you are still in opposition with God.
Life has a purpose. One day there are going to be a lot of people that are going to regret their ignorance and pride. One will reap what they sow and if one sows little, they will reap little.

The atheist group sent a letter to the district on August 20, calling the display of Warner Sallman’s “Head of Christ” an “egregious violation of the First Amendment,”
Correction….egregious violation of an unconstitutional position taken by an unconstitutional court.
In my humble opinion, judges had better worry about their eternal reward. The Constitution is clearly worded and backed by those who wrote and supported the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights and each Amendment since. Ignorance and/or pride is not going to save them from OATH BREAKING. Yes, there is no way that one of these judges could honestly say standing before God that they protected the Constitution. Rather, they protected their own precedence and the Constitution be damned. May God have mercy on their souls.

While each is entitled to his/her own beliefs, all the people in the world cannot alter fact and eternal truths. We know that The Son of Man (i.e., Man of Holiness or God The Father), even Jesus Christ, walked this earth over 2000 years ago. Thousands witnessed his existence. Many witnessed His death on the cross. Then 500 plus witnesses saw the Resurrected and Glorified Lord. These witnesses also saw Him ascend into Heaven accompanied by Angels.
Just because you have not seen something with your own eyes doesn’t make it so or not so. By you declaring that such facts are false, you are declaring that hundreds of individuals are liars. The odds are not in your favor.
Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of this world. He is the Only Begotten of the Father. He is the Creator. He will be our Eternal Judge. You don’t have to believe, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

While I agree 100% on the comment about the Democrats, I would go further to say that even many Republicans have failed to learn the involvement of God in this nation’s founding.
Without morals and religion….our Constitution is wholly inadequate to rule this people.

We call Benedict Arnold a traitor because he betrayed America and stood with the British. He did this openly.
Today, we have Obama, Reid and others that will stand with their arm around you, with smiles from ear to ear while they betray everything that America stands for behind close doors.
Obama is the greatest and most transparent traitor this nation has ever encountered.
Correction...your invisible friend will hear your prayer and pass it on to the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

“It’s not an unpatriotic act by any means because we have a number of ways in which students do learn how to be patriotic and express American pride.”
Who needs enemies when we have communists like this that pretend to be American but disrespect everything America stands for.

James 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works…….WORKS
James 2: 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
James 2: 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
You cannot have faith without works.
You cannot be saved without faith.
You cannot be saved without the works required to demonstrate adequate faith.
Therefore, you cannot be saved without faith AND WORKS!
And because you like scripture, here are the words of a Prophet (Nephi; about 550 BC; America; Other Sheep) taken from the Everlasting Gospel (Stick of Joseph) carried by the angel who flew in the midst of heaven (Rev 14:6) to be taught to the whole world. Scripture written by a Prophet and translated by a Prophet.
2 Nephi 25:23 For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do.
 August 21, 2015 at 4:20pm
You have made the case that we are saved by grace – NOT OF WORKS. Faith requires works for faith without works is dead. You conclude ….but one is not saved by works.
If works are out…..then faith is out. That means by grace we are all saved.
Read your own writings. Your logic reaches this very conclusion. You can’t argue that faith is needed but works are not needed. Faith and Works go hand in hand.
August 21, 2015 at 1:39pm
One can sin and still have faith. Does this mean they will be saved? What is your definition of ‘saved’?
Yes, all will be resurrected (overcome physical death). But not all will overcome spiritual death. In fact, Christ stated that the path to life [eternal] is straight and narrow and few there be that find it. According to you salvation, will be given to all freely. I will believe Christ instead.
Christ is God’s gift of grace. We did nothing, nor could we do anything, to bring about the gift of Christ’s Atonement and Resurrection.

That is a false doctrine.
Christ made it perfectly clear that unless a man be born of water and the Spirit, he could not enter into the Kingdom of God. Christ, Himself, was baptized to fulfill all righteousness.
Christ later taught the Apostle to preach His Gospel. Those that believed and were baptized would be saved, and those who would not believe and were not baptized would be damned.
Peter informs us that Christ visited the spirit world to teach the spirits that had died (1 Peter 3). Paul informed us that baptisms were performed for the dead (1 Cor).
One must be baptized by one who holds the proper authority in Christ’s Church, or THAT PERSON WILL NOT RETURN TO THE FATHER. This is Biblical doctrine.
Yes, all will resurrect, but few will follow the straight and narrow path to life [eternal or presence of The Father]. Christ, Himself, taught this principle. And yes, it to is Biblical doctrine.
 August 20, 2015 at 4:57pm
Let’s do it your way. Let’s focus solely on the Bible.
Christ made it clear that unless a man be born of the water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God (John 3:5). Christ later taught His Apostle to go forth and teach His Gospel and he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that doth not believe [and is not baptized] shall be damned (Mark 16:16).
Is it a requirement for man to be baptized by one with authority in order to enter into the Kingdom of God? ABSOLUTELY. Did Christ have to obey this requirement? ABSOLUTELY (Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness (Matthew 3:15).
And where shall one turn to obtain a baptism by one with authority? Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine…..
Christ established His Church on the foundation of Apostles and Prophets who had received His authority by the laying on of hands and who were directed by Christ through divine revelation.
The Bible contains the writings of the Prophets in their time along with prophecies about the future. You cannot profess to follow the Bible and then deny the doctrines because of private interpretation.

God saves those who love Him (proven through keeping His commandments) and who love their neighbor.
 August 20, 2015 at 4:26pm
Yes, but inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

I am a proud member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a devout follower of He whose name the Church bears.
I worship the Father and the Son. I pray to the Father in the name of the Son. I do not pray to another.
I know that Christ alone is the Savior and Redeemer of this world. I know that Christ is the great Creator and that He overcame both physical and spiritual death that we all face through His Atonement and Resurrection.
I know that Christ has restored His Church and Kingdom in these last days in preparation for His return. I know that His Church, which He leads through divine revelation to Prophets and Apostles, provides the means (Priesthood authority) whereby man may be exalted (i.e., saving ordinances like baptism of water and Spirit).
I know that I bear His Holy Priesthood and that I have entered onto that straight and narrow path leading to Eternal Life.
I am a Christian according to The New Testament and Paul’s witness. Sorry if I don’t meet your private interpretation.
