Do Mormons wear sacred underwear to protect themselves from non-Mormons? Just curious, where in the book of Mormon does it require you wear it?
By replying to me does that help you to be exalted to a God someday.
Can I down load a free pdf of the book of Mormon online? I want to verify quotes from the book of Mormon.

Great Idea but which book are they going to use? An all inclusive book, non denominational, that the kids can twist and corrupt the readings? Also schools that are state and federal funded should not allow this due to seperation of church and state. Now if kids want to start a bible study before or after with a volunteer teacher that would be fine. What the schools SHOULD do is require kids to take ethics class. It provides different approaches to the modern topics. Its not the same as having bible study BUT the end results are students having a better understanding of consequences, good or bad.

...It makes you wonder how many people involved in these various sects are doing it out of habit or necessity rather than any kind of actual faith.
I suspect it's a lot. NPR ran a story last year that was interesting. http://www.npr.org/2012/04/30/151681248/from-...

Even though that majority of the population in the US reports as being Christian. I firmly believe that if they really gave an honest assessment of their faith, a sizable portion would declare themselves agnostic (at least).

If you walked up to a hundred people on the street and told them that God literally spoke to you last night, as in - "I actually heard his voice and believe it or not, he sounded like George Burns" - spoke. How many would believe you? I'm betting the majority would think "this guy is bat-shit crazy".
And this makes me happy.

I especially find the use of artistic license in the dates immediately following September 11, 1857 to be interesting.

Sounds like exactly what anyone from any other religion would say. They all think they "know". At some point you have to respect the the truth, which is that none of us know if there is or is not a good. In the unlikely event there is a god, no one knows if any of our religions truly represent that god. And if by some exceptionally rare chance, one of our religions is truly from god, know one knows which one.

You can tell yourself you know, but you only believe. If you ever learn to accept that, you can take a much more honest look at the world.

I dont think , in my time , I have taken more than i was given. However I am sure I could have gave more. And maybe cared a little more than I have. But we are all not perfect so , maybe each day we can become a little better.
For what is too come...Great Day

It is better to light candles
than to curse the darkness.
It is better to plant seeds
than to accuse the earth.
The world needs all of our power
and love and energy,
and each of us has something that we can give.
The trick is to find it and use it,
to find it and give it away.
So there will always be more.
We can be lights for each other,
and through each other's illumination
we will see the way.
Each of us is a seed,
a silent promise,
and it is always spring."

How do you explain the millions of people with a different religion, contradictory to yours, who also think they "know." You have no more proof than they do. Your belief is based on the same sort of gut feeling they have. You all think all the others are wrong, but when asked why you are so sure none of you have an answer beyond screaming that you just know.

Doesn't it all seem a bit ignorant?

It has never been verified that this ever happened. Every religion has stories of miracles accomplished by different gods. Why do you believe your particular religion's accounts of miracles, and disbelief the rest?
