    Sooo… the missile carrying the robotic explorer that traveled 442 million miles from earth to orbit mars (flawlessly) costs not much more than the crashing obamacare website??? Huh.

    @808

    I agree, but the key words you used are “as well” – meaning that they can do both.

    Honestly, I don’t care all that much, but I just wish people would do both, rather than only do it when they get out of their formal worship services.

  • September 19, 2014 at 2:06pm

    Pretty sad that they couldn’t do both.

    For those who appreciate traditional hymns of praise, you’ve got to see/hear this version of the 18th century hymn “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” by the BYU Choir and Orchestra.

    Please share your uplifting traditional hymns as well! :)

    “Finances appear to be one of the factors, as cutting music and staff who facilitate this form of worship is sometimes one of the easier decisions to make when budgets tighten.”

    Huh? People get PAID to be in their church choirs??? I guess being raised “Mormon” I just don’t understand getting paid to do ANYTHING for the Lord.

    For anyone interested, go to one of our worship services this Sunday and every single person giving a sermon, singing in the choir, teaching a Sunday School class, is done by volunteers… no paid ministry is kinda refreshing :)

    @rapture…

    You too will watch the rapture come and go… on October 3rd in a theater near you. (rated pg-13, this film may not be appropriate for children under 13).

    Don’t worry, I’m sure Nicholas Cage will thank you for the free promotions you’re giving his movie :)

    now are there many antichrists: 1 Jn. 2:18 .

    certain men crept in … denying the only Lord God: Jude 1:4 .
    which say they are apostles, and are not: Rev. 2:2 .
    thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot: Rev. 3:16 .

    @Gita

    I’m not saying Christ was wrong, I’m saying that you are wrong in your understanding of what the word “prevail” means. Since Christ’s one true Church was restored in these latter-days, the gates of hell did in fact NOT prevail against it. Thus, the restoration of Christ’s one true church is in itself the fulfillment of Christ’s promise.

    In the early Christian church the saints believed that the second coming would come in their day – but Paul corrected them and told them that an Apostasy is to precede the Second Coming:

    “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”

    Are you saying the Apostle Paul was wrong when he made that statement or he lied. Which one gita?

  • [2] September 12, 2014 at 12:37pm

    @Gita

    Unfortunately, you have been misinformed.

    Christ’s gospel has always been perfect. However, after he ascended to The Father and his disciples thereafter died or were killed, a falling away from that perfect gospel occurred. This is referred to as the apostasy. Thus the need for God to call a living prophet to declare His word once again, just as he had done from the beginning of time. Joseph Smith was called to be God’s prophet and mouthpiece at the young age of 14.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the RESTORED gospel of Jesus Christ in its perfect form – just as Christ originally organized his church.

    I hope this helps clear things up :)

    aaaaand then they disappear.

  • [12] September 11, 2014 at 12:14pm

    Yeah! He needs to ONLY stick to those non-”crazy-beliefs” such as:

    - bringing dead people back to life,
    - walking on water,
    - burning bushes talking to people,
    - healing leprosy with water,
    - healing blindness with spit and mud,
    - healing venomous fiery serpent bites by looking at a staff,
    - dividing the red sea,
    - seeing angels,
    - the flooding of the entire world,

    Glenn should stick to completely logical beliefs such as that, right?

    As a Mormon and Christian, I understand that miracles often defy logic and sound “crazy” to the non-believer.

    I compare them in that they are both testaments of Jesus Christ.

    The Book of Mormon is 100% true… regardless of what you believe.

    BTW – the only “rapture” the world will ever see stars Nicholas Cage.

    Finally, you must also realize that if our good works are what qualify/justify us to partake of Christ’s saving grace – then our bad works must also be able to make a man fall from grace. We must endure to the end to retain our salvation. Please see a sample below:

    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matt 10:22

    lest … I myself should be a castaway: 1 Cor. 9:27

    let him … take heed lest he fall: 1 Cor. 10:12

    ye are fallen from grace: Gal. 5:4

    some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: 1 Tim. 1:19

    If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance: Heb. 6:6

    sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge … no more sacrifice for sins: Heb. 10:26

    lest any man fail of the grace of God: Heb. 12:15

    again entangled … latter end is worse: 2 Pet. 2:20

    Again, I can give you more if you desire.

  • September 9, 2014 at 1:25pm

    Oh, and to show that I’m not simply cherry picking scriptures – that this simple doctrine has been taught all over the Bible, please see below a few examples:

    Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work. Psalms 62:12

    For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Ecclesiastes 12:14

    I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. Jeremiah 17:10

    For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Matt 16:27

    For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. Romans 2:13

    For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 2 Cor 5:10

    And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 1 Peter 1:17

    Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. Rev 22:14

    And many more if you want them.

  • September 9, 2014 at 1:14pm

    Thank you for your reply. However, with all due respect, just because my cited scriptures teach exactly opposite to what you are saying – doesn’t mean that they are ‘cherry-picked.’ In fact, you fail to even attempt to answer my question regarding the requirement of baptism for salvation. Is that not a good work – something we do as commanded?

    Second, when you say- “There is nothing you can do on your own to win or deserve Gods grace.” Well, mustn’t we have faith in Christ to qualify for his grace? (Your own scripture states “For by grace you have been saved through faith.”) If yes, then you admit the folly of your argument when you say that “Grace means to get something that you do not deserve; unmerited favor.” Isn’t our faith in him what “merits” us for grace?

    Finally, I don’t think you completely understood what I’m saying. Again, it is NOT our works that save us, but it IS our works that qualify us for his saving grace. This is in perfect harmony with each of your cited scriptures, as well as mine.

    Please answer my questions. Thanks! :)

  • [1] September 9, 2014 at 12:57pm

    Thanks for the answer WatchingThePuppetShow.

    I agree that Christ was most likely not born in December. And even though I disagree that to celebrate His birth in December is sinful, I truly appreciate your opinion and dedication to your beliefs.

    Thanks!
