    So sad. But she died with honor and will always leave that with her family.

    Also note that my home town of Mesa, AZ has been found to be the most conservative city in America!

    Oh please George, if you really don’t know that the majority of translation was done through a Urim and Thummim, then you’re not worth your salt as an anti-mormon.

    Your Queen Sandra Tanner would be ashamed of you! ;)

    @JGraham III

    From what you wrote, I’m sure you know all about covenants than I every will (I’ve never written a 60+ page paper on anything – even in law school)! But this may be a different perspective as found in the LDS Bible Dictionary:

    “Covenant

    Sometimes denotes an agreement between persons (1 Sam. 23:18) or nations (1 Sam. 11:1); more often between God and man; but in this latter case it is important to notice that the two parties to the agreement do not stand in the relation of independent and equal contractors. God in His good pleasure fixes the terms, which man accepts. The same word is sometimes rendered “testament.”

    The gospel is so arranged that principles and ordinances are received by covenant, placing the recipient under strong obligation and responsibility to honor the commitment. Thus the severe consequences to Ananias and Sapphira, who deliberately broke their covenant and lied unto God (Acts 5:1–11).”

    And here is a quick talk on Covenants from one of our Quorum of Twelve Apostles:

    https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2011/10/covenants?lang=eng&query=covenants

    Just my two cents :)

    BTW – asking George-Harrison to explain The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is like asking a Nazi to explain Judaism.

    This guy must not have a job if you look at all the time he spends demeaning Mormons. Seriously, click on his name and take a look for yourself.

    Not sure what you mean by the “trinity” – never read about that in the Bible. But I do know about the Godhead – consisting of three separate personages being God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost.

    Here’s an example

    “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

    Matthew 3:16-17

    God the Father speaking from heaven, Jesus Christ standing by the water, and the Holy Ghost descending like a dove. Pretty simple.

    Indeed, the Prophet Stephen clearly stated that he even saw Jesus Christ standing at the right hand of God the Father.

    “But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.”

    Acts 7:55.

    Yes, the Godhead is one in that they are perfectly harmonious in all things such purpose and thought. But that no more makes them morph into a singular personage than it would to every soldier that is “an army of one” (if you remember those commercials).

    Christ explained it this way:

    “Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.”

    Jesus Christ is real. He’s not just another name for God.

    It only supports the notion that Joseph Smith was literally translating a foreign language if it would be helpful for him to go back and clarify what he was at the time attempting to express.

    Do you speak any other languages? If so, have you ever translated that language into English for someone? If you have, you would know that if your initial translation ‘on the fly’ was written down, you could easily go back later to clarify with more thought what was initially said – even though the original statement was a correct translation.

    This argument you make is really quite silly.

    Out of the many grammatical and clarifying changes to the original book, there is NOT ONE single doctrinal change to the original Book of Mormon. Thus, the original, just as the subsequent editions are all perfect in the doctrine it teaches.

    By the way – which Bible do you believe is most accurate? There are many more differences between the different Versions of the Bible than there between the different editions of the Book of Mormon. Do you really think the first linguistic translation of the Bible needed absolutely no grammatical and/or clarifying in later editions?

    Please answer which Version of the Bible you believe is a perfect translation and why are there different Versions?

    What is wrong with you? My post has absolutely nothing to do with religion. Why do you feel the need to cyber-stalk me to attack my religion?

    Not cool dude. In fact, very disturbing.

    But I still wish the best for you!

    @Blest

    You are too funny. “And the Bible says that the Father knows things that Jesus and the Holy Spirit do not know.” Yet you earlier tried to say that they are the same person… hmmm..

    I proudly declare that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! For it is literally, as the name describes, the church of Jesus Christ. He literally leads and directs it through a living Prophet. It is His one true and living church here on earth.

    Yet, as simple as it is for me to declare my faith, you have yet to declare your own. So, what denomination exactly do you subscribe to?

  • [1] May 20, 2015 at 9:07am

    Wait… I’m the one who is “blathering”?

    “Jesus is God. God is Jesus. They are the same God, but different persons.”

    “God has relationship within Himself.”

    “See, if God isn’t multiple people within Himself, how could He be a loving God?”

    “When God said “Let us make man in our image”, He is talking to Himself.”

    Seriously, too funny.

    Romney may not have been the most conservatively pure candidate we had, but I dare say that he was likely the most morally pure candidate this country has seen in a long time. Indeed, the left-wing media had to resort to high school pranks to try to smear him!

    Here’s a quote you can take to the bank for 2016:

    If conservatives continue to hold their breath to vote for the perfectly conservative candidate, then they’ll keep holding it while this country turns blue.

    We need a few more red states to win a general election – and we all need to stick together to do it!

    You are so predictable. :)

    I’d rather see the “Bible” for the details that the Godhead consists of three separate personages.

    Here’s a simple example of three separate personages all in different places all at once:

    “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

    Matthew 3:16-17

    God the Father speaking from heaven, Jesus Christ standing by the water, and the Holy Ghost descending like a dove. Pretty simple.

    Indeed, the Prophet Stephen clearly stated that he even saw Jesus Christ standing at the right hand of God the Father.

    “But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.”

    Acts 7:55.

    Yes, the Godhead is one in that they are perfectly harmonious in all things such purpose and thought. But that no more makes them morph into a singular personage than it would to every soldier that is “an army of one” (if you remember those commercials).

    Christ explained it this way:

    “Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.”

    Hopefully this makes the Savior a lot more real all of a sudden. He’s not just another name for God.

    How does one begat oneself? Please feel free to explain.

    God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son: John 3:16

  • [1] May 18, 2015 at 10:33pm

    @Blest

    You denied the very existence of Jesus Christ when you stated:

    “Why couldn’t God set aside a portion of Himself and call it “God’s Word” or “Son” or “Jesus”?”

    You just said that Jesus Christ never existed and was nothing more than another name and/or form of God! Don’t you see this?

    Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God! Please reject your third-century creeds that attempt to confuse this simple truth.

    This is my beloved Son: Matt. 3:17
    Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God: Matt. 16:16
    Jesus Christ, the Son of God: Mark 1:1 . ( John 20:31 ; Acts 8:37 ; Acts 9:20 ; 2 Cor. 1:19 ; Heb. 4:14 ; 1 Jn. 4:15 ; 1 Jn. 5:5)
    glory as of the only begotten of the Father: John 1:14
    God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son: John 3:16
    Dost thou believe on the Son of God: John 9:35
    Son of God might be glorified: John 11:4
    that the Father may be glorified in the Son: John 14:13
    as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you: John 20:21
    God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son: Acts 3:13
    glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ: Rom. 15:6
    God sent forth his Son: Gal. 4:4

    Let’s make this simple. The Bible speaks of those who have actually seen Jesus Christ, a separate individual from God, standing next to God in Heaven…

    “But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,” Acts 7:55.

    Good luck brother.

    @George

    You are nothing more than a fool who cannot declare that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Yet you try to pass yourself off as a Christian. You are not a Christian.

    I, for one, declare with boldness that Jesus is the Christ, the living Son of God.
    God Himself, clearly declared this in His own voice from Heaven when speaking of Jesus Christ said that “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17. Yet you attempt to make Him a liar; this you cannot do.

    Your previous posts have stated that you do not believe that Christ ever existed. You stated this every time you denied Christ’s very existence by saying that He was nothing more than an alter-ego of our Heavenly Father. You stated that Christ did not exist, but rather was just another name or form of God the Father. Thus, you may believe in a god, but not the God of the Bible who was clearly the Father of Jesus Christ.

    I reject such blasphemy. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.

    Jesus Christ Himself stated “I seek NOT MINE OWN WILL, BUT THE WILL OF THE FATHER THAT SENT ME.” John 5:30.

    Jesus Christ repeats over and over that God is His Father, you attempt to make our Savior a liar – you are not a Christian.

    By rejecting Jesus Christ – you also reject God. “He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.”

    You are a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
