Re: My testimony

If a document existed with the witnesses actual hand written signatures on it would be SO faith promoting the Church would have published it in the front of the Book of Mormon. In similar fashion to publishing the facsimiles in the Book of Abraham. That it isn't in there is sufficient to deduce such...

Re: Misconceptions about the Mormon Church (U.K.)

Tobin said: That's garbage. Polygamy is not essential to the afterlife or the Celestial Kingdom. In fact, LDS theology is, if you read the Book of Mormon, that it is in general a sin. Nice strawman there Tobin. Here's what I said: polygamy is an important part of LDS theology in terms of the afterl...

Re: Teen uses AR-15 to defend his home

I see bcspace believes the solution to too many deaths being caused by people carrying guns, is to have more people carrying guns... :rolleyes:

Ponder on this; if nobody carried a gun how many people would be killed by people carrying guns?

Re: The Violent OT God in Sunday School Yesterday

I think it's great that God is flexible enough to display the behaviours that suit whatever views and opinions people hold about what behaviour by God is or isn't acceptable in societies eyes...

How do you 'know for sure' who tells the truth?
(As opposed to 'believing you know' who tells the truth)

For example, how do you know for sure that Joseph Smith saw God and Christ in person?

Re: Dieter F. Uchtdorf - hostage negotiator...?

Just because a Wiki article does not mention a designated Lufthansa representative as being involved in any negotiating process, does not mean any negotiating did not happen. This is like trying to build an argument on lack of data. Many parties that were not named, but who obviously had a part in ...

Re: Great question - "Why are facts Anti-Mormon?"

First, you accuse us of being ignorant and brainwashed and "can't think for ourselves". But then when all of our intellectuals and scholars ARE in fact "independent" thinking for ourselves, doing our OWN work supporting the mission of the Church, then our research doesn't actual...

Five terrorists had hijacked a Lufthansa 737 jet in Rome, Italy, and were making their way to Athens, Greece, with hostages on board. In an instant, Lufthansa’...
