<quoted text>Thanks for the info. The things I read made it look like Smith's dad and brother were always in. I'd post the links but I can't say I really care. If I had my choice I would of rather of been raised Mormon, they seem like they would be easier to get out of. At least they believe in education and don't seem near as stupid as the cult I was raised in.

You represent your religion a lot better than Known Crap represents the JWs.
Thanks.
I think.:-)

And it doesn't qualify as an answer BECAUSE....????? Wow lol
I guess you didn't understand the example I provided.

I'll try again.

If you asked me "what is 2 + 2?" and I replied with "the answer is in a math book" would you think that qualifies as an answer?
WTF

<quoted text>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?
We believe that everyone has the chance to hear and choose to accept the full gospel of Jesus Christ. If not on this earth, then in the Spirit world after this life where we all go to await judgement day.
Since I know several will say that isn't Biblical, I'll remind them of the scriptures where Christ mentions a prison, and a paradise. This is the Spirit world. For example, Christ went to teach the souls in prison after His death. Why, if they had no chance to accept His teachings? To mock them? I don't think so.
So I would imagine that all the people who didn't believe there is an afterlife, they may be more willing to listen after they are still aware of their surroundings after death, right? Now, I don't know if people will have another chance to hear it if they already rejected it on earth. Who knows? But I would imagine hearing only pieces of the gospel isn't really fair, since they are still kind of ignorant of the full gospel, even if the ignorance was willful. I would think they would still have the ability to learn it in its entirety and then decide. Not for me to make those rules though.

Anyway, as I said before, that is why we do baptisms for the dead. Since we believe that baptism is a necessary ordinance for salvation, we do this work for them, in case they decide in the Spirit world to accept the gospel. It's still their choice.

No, no it wasn't. "In God We Trust" was introduced in the mid 1950s in response to the Soviets.

I understood your response. It was a deflection. You're avoiding actually answering my question.
Maybe you're afraid to think about it?

<quoted text>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.
Both 1 and 2 involve faith. I fully admit that. I have said before I believe that's one of the main reasons we are on this earth, to have our faith tested. With proof, there is no room for faith.

How about this: for those that have faith in God, and believe the Bible to be the word of God, why can't there be other records from other groups of people that Jesus visited when He told us he was leaving to tend to other sheep?

And as for 1. That was the purpose of the witnesses of the Book of Mormon. If you read the testimonies of the people that wrote what they saw, they did so to say that they saw and handled the gold plates and witnessed the angel Moroni that brought it forth.

Again I realize faith is required because one could argue that these men were all in cahoots. Though it isn't plausible to me that these men would risk their lives to do all of this, lose everything they had and still die poor.
Some of them even got mad at Joseph at some point and turned away from him but never denounced the BOM and what they said they witnessed.

<quoted text>Great post!
When my Dad converted from mormonism....
He received the Lord with such happiness, and tears!
He was ashamed of his time with the Mormons, and repented
everyday!
I was glad to help him find Jesus!
My catholic friend, when he converted said...
"I never heard God's voice before in the catholic church..."
I thank Jesus that their eyes were opened!
Amen!
I had a similar experience when joining the LDS church and leaving my old one behind.

No. It wasn't built on "In God We Trust." That was a kneejerk that came later. WTF? Did you flunk out of American History 102?

You say that I've tried all of them (drugs)?
Why is it that I CONSTANTLY have to tell Christians not to bear false witness? Is it because they think all they have to do is say "I'm sorry. Forgive me." and their sins are POOF! All Gone.

I'm well familiar with your emotionally charged thought processes.
I understand a little more about Jesus than you think I do, and I know a lot more about a lot of things than you seem to.
