Jesus is not the Father. He makes that pretty evident. Or else He prayed to Himself in private, asked Himself to remove the bitter cup, asked Himself why he forsook Himself on the cross, threw His voice at His baptism, etc. Jesus is a being of flesh and bone that exists outside of our "time". He lives in an eternal world.
He will manifest Himself to everyone when He returns, but He will return just as He was taken up. Obviously everyone in the entire world witnessed Him ascending into Heaven, or the entire world would have believed on Him after witnessing such.
This trial on earth is to test our faith. If there is global proof, then there is no need for Faith. We are supposed to rely on our communication with the Holy Ghost. Which is why He said more blessed are those who believe and have not seen.
After judgment day, we go to the kingdom in which we earned. And since our souls are eternal, how long means eternity.
Why do Mormons kill other Mormons during World Wars? You would think the Holy Ghost would communicate with you who not to kill. Similar to Friend or Foe technology we have on fighter jets today.

I don't understand why this Holy Ghost would allow Mormons to kill each other. Please explain.

I could not imagine anything more horrible than being forced to praise that being for all eternity
I see your point of view. I kind of look at the OT this way: if I was the one that created a bunch of beings and gave them all my lists of do's and don'ts, along with what the consequences were for whatever their choices, I'd probably be angry at them too. And remember, God works within eternity. This is like 20 minutes to Him. So all the stories in the OT that you refer to where He causes someone to die, it's kinda like a little league baseball game where the kid in left field still acts like he's in Tee Ball. Throwing his glove up in the air, tripping runners when they round the bases, throwing the ball at someone's head, hitting others with the bat, etc. so the coach is like, alright, you're riding the pine, get in the dugout.

I'm in a silly mood tonight, but you get the point. We're not talking about our president and this is some democracy. We're talking about a creator that expects us to follow eternal rules.

My own thoughts: what if these aren't His rules. What if He has a Father that He is subject to? What if these laws are laws passed down from generation to generation? We don't understand eternity, and we know that we are subject to this God, but we don't really know what is beyond that. Anyway, just thinking out loud.

The Holy Ghost doesn't "allow" us to do anything. We have free will. When we do anything wrong, the Holy Ghost leaves us. We have to live worthy of His presence.

Why do religies continually try to act like they know exactly what happened 2000+ years ago? Because they read about it in a book? Isn't it more rational just to admit that the only thing that proves is that a book was compiled 1600 years ago?
Show me any physical evidence that indicates any of the things I list as MYTHOLOGIES are not simply that.

If you have faith in a God,maybe not the true God as you described, let say a muslim or hindu, does that keep you from eternal hell? Or do you have to be christian no matter what denomination to escape the everlasting torture by God?

No, I'm trying to cause him to think. If Jesus visited other people as the scriptures say. Why couldn't the Book of Mormon be a record from one of those groups of people?
I can think of a few reasons.

1) We know it was written by Joseph Smith. There is no reason or evidence to suggest it came from any other source.

2) Scripture does not mean fact. There is no reason to assume anything the Bible says is true. To operate from the view that it is true means you start with your answer and rationalize your way from there. And that is not how we do history, science, or any other truth seeking endeavor.

I don't try and do that though-they do that themselves.

But here, in the spirit of GOOD naturedness I will help @ that level--

Bragging that you survived habitual drug abuse and that you have replaced it with religion doesn't make you lucid, it merely makes me wonder what imbalance you were/are self medicating.
That's easy...
The imbalance of Sin, and Righteousness!

Yes, anyone who formulates a scam, like your bible for example, is usually at least intelligent enough to know that the majority will eventually become too intelligent to fall for that scam. Sadly, your bible was about a thousand years off.

You talk about muslums killing, how about the christian murders? When a christian blows up a womens clinic and kills the Doctors, employees and clients you cheer.(ALL of the Abrhamic cults are evil blood lusting and violent)
Muslums worship the same god as christians and jews you are all devil worshipers!
Gosh!
I would absolutely faint if you ever told the truth!
I might as well talk to a wall...
