    ***crickets from George again***

    continued again :)

    I believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

    I claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

    I believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

    I believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul-We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

    continued from above…

    I believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

    I believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam’s transgression.

    I believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.

    I believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    I believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

    I believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

    I believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.

    I believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

    I believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

    @George

    Seriously, do you have anything else to do in your life other than stare at websites waiting for your chance to demean The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

    It is the sign of a true coward to constantly knock others down while never having the courage to try standing on your own two feet. You’re like a lobster who always pulls the other lobsters back in the bucket when they try to crawl out.

    I hate to be so direct with you, but the venom you spew is simply noxious.

    So… let’s move on. Rather than hide behind your anonymity as you demean others’ beliefs, why don’t you declare to the world what YOU believe? Since you are so sure that my religion is wrong, why don’t you tell us which religion is right? What do you believe? Do you even know?

    As you gather your thought regarding what you believe, I’ll start this new conversation with what I believe.

    continued…

    George,

    So rather than telling me why you think I’m wrong (which I don’t care) – why don’t you tell us what is right? To what religion to you subscribe? Do you dare declare what you believe – or simply continue to demean others while hiding behind your anonymity?

    Here’s a simple question that should be easy for you to start off with –

    Do you or do you not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

    “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.”

    Three separate personages in three different places – all at once.

    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.

    Now, feel free to rationalize your third and fourth century creeds.

  • [1] February 24, 2015 at 4:06pm

    Holy smokes George, give it a rest! Even you admit that such an “Adam-God Theory” is not church doctrine!

    In October 1976 general conference, Spencer W. Kimball declared the Church’s official position on the “Adam-God Theory”: “We warn you against the dissemination of doctrines which are not according to the Scriptures and which are alleged to have been taught by some of the General Authorities of past generations. Such, for instance, is the Adam-God theory. We denounce that theory and hope that everyone will be cautioned against this and other kinds of false doctrine.”

    Now before you start saying “look, they said B.Y. was wrong!” – understand that Pres. Kimball was referring to things “alleged” to have been taught by past apostles. I.e., faulty theories assumed from what B.Y. really taught – such as your theories.

    This is evident since other Prophets such as Joseph Fielding Smith explained that Brigham was speaking of Adam in the context of him being the presiding priesthood holder over all the human family, and therefore “our Father and our God”, similar to how Moses was called a god to Aaron and Pharaoh (Exodus 7:1).

    This is perfectly evident if you would have actually quoted B.Y. in context. In the very same sermon you misquote, you fail to continue to the point that B.Y. easily distinguishes between God, Christ, and Adam (aka Michael) – “It is true that the earth was organized by three distinct characters, namely, Eloheim, Yahovah, and Michael…”

    Easy

    @Moosehunter

    I was talking to George-Harrison – sorry – I should have clarified that :)

    I’m actually a Mormon who is fed up with George following every article he can to attach my religion – yet is too afraid to say what he himself believes in.

    This may be different than what you believe – but I will not belittle your beliefs for being different than mine. I look forward to hearing other people declare what they believe regarding our Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. :)

    Get out of the basement much? Seriously, go get some fresh air, it will help clear your head.

    Yes, North Carolina is a great place too :)

    BTW – I don’t live in Utah.

    @Tango

    Again, another statement masked as a question.

    By the way – you’ve already been given the answer by Half-Truths_are_lies but you don’t want to accept it. To not understand that God has always given and taken laws – then you would have to ignore pretty much the entire Old Testament.

    You may call that “fungible” – we call it direct revelation from a living God. We do not believe that God is dead and can no longer communicate with his children.

    Now, a question for you to satisfy my intellectual curiosity. Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

  • February 19, 2015 at 10:18am

    Come on Tango – you don’t need to put on the front that you are trying to satisfy an “intellectual curiosity.” If we are being intellectually honest, you will see that your ‘questions’ are really just masked derogatory statements.

    Personal spiritual experiences and growth is great – and the internet can be a wonderful took in reaching that goal.

    HOWEVER – that is only accomplishing the first great commandment but neglecting the second.

    “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.

    And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

    Matthew 22:37-40

    Those who regularly attend a Sunday service should know that gathering together allows us to serve one another. And I’ve found that serving and loving others is one of the best ways to grow closer to God.

    “If any man will come after me [He said], let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”

    “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it”

    Matthew 16:24–25; see also Matthew 10:39.

    “once saved always saved” – the kid was baptized two weeks ago.

    So who cares that he brutally murdered his parents and sister in cold blood – right? [sarc off].

  • [7] February 16, 2015 at 9:27am

    You don’t really think that “any” child could be “set off” to the point of murdering their family do you? If so, that’s a sad perspective on life.
