There is no need for me to post ridiculous explanations,I leave that task to those who are experts in that field,like yourself.
Nothing contained in any of yours or others responses was based on Scientific evidence or logical proof.It was based on your opinions.
And you based your opinions on events that you knew nothing about or experienced
Suffice it to say,I have my faith and you have your beliefs and they are diametrically opposed.
I know precisely what my faith is based on,you don't.
I have personally experienced the events that led me to my faith,you haven't.
My faith is unshaken,as a matter of fact,the experiences that I've had on this website have served to strengthen my faith,not diminish it.
As a matter of fact,I had never fully understood the parable we have been discussing,until I came on this website and started participating in these discussions.
Then,it became very apparent to me.....
So I thank you and others,your unbelief has been used by my Lord Jesus Christ in order to strengthen my faith,by confirming the truth contained in the following parable
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and attack you.
For that reason,I have no need to continue the discussion on this topic.
You really need to take your medication freak. Do they allow you to be around children? You should not be allowed around children.

I'm not on a pedestal. I didn't state that I praise much of anything, but you do. Your "entitleMental" remark indicates that you have Malthusian tendencies - and the movement most closely associated with that particular evil is the Tea Party.
IF you subscribe to that ideology, THEN you are not in alignment with any of your self-professed saintliness.

I did take my medication for what used to ail me,I was afflicted by a disease called unbelief. Read the Bible and was cured of my affliction.

You,on the other hand,are also afflicted by unbelief,but prefer,as your medication,gibberish and nonsense,which,in turn,only increases that which afflicts you....

As I said truth is revealed every day. We learn more and more as we are prepared to receive it.
Even Adam didn't learn everything. And what he did learn certainly didn't come in one big lump.
But your prophet did the opposite of moving forward to learn. He put forth an idea that lasted in your church for over a hundred years that is immoral.
Point being, if your prophet is not leading you to learn, then dump the idea that a prophet has the ear of god.
But clearly you refuse to admit this could be possible. Just as Muslims refuse to believe Mohammad was the true prophet.

Followers in your church were disabled from learning how to be open to the idea black persons were not cursed black skin for a hundred plus years. What of them?

And again, one big lump is exaggerating the situation. Your church did not even keep up with government. It is pretty sad when someone who claims a moral authority is behind in morality.

How can you keep avoiding answering these charges?

Is it a mere coincidence that the countries with the highest fealty to the Abrahamic religions just happen to be the most violent, that those religious countries rank lower academically than "atheistic" countries and that the U.S. "Bible belt" states rank even lower still?

Back when the Internet was first started the churches spread rumors that it was the antichrist. I guess that information at your finger tips is anti christian

Revelation has no place in the New Testament and shouldn't have been included. That said, obsessing on all of these Bible verses, somebody is showing they have waaay too much time on their hands and waaay too little cognitive ability. Maybe you should do something productive, curious. Have you thought about taking up knitting or basket weaving? Maybe you can make plywood cutouts of duckies and horsies to sell at Flea World.

Every human can be wrong. That's what makes us human. That's also why we have to depend on the Holy Ghost to reveal truth to us.
The prophet even encourages us to pray about the things he tells us to receive our own witness of truth.
Still waiting for you to tell me the point of having an ear to god if you are such an epic failure to ask fundamental questions? BTW, clearly no one in the church was inspired by the holy ghost to find that Brigham was wrong for over a hundred years.
Sorry, but the track record of your church proves your concept a failure.
It is only human nature for followers of a religion to follow the leader. So if you put a leader on such a high pedestal as your church does, it is inevitable such problems will exist. Thus proving your church to not be true to its word. The prophet clearly and demonstrably does not have an ear to god, nor a holy ghost.
Keep trotting out these supernatural ways of finding truth and I expect you and your religion to keep making epic failures of moral reasoning.

Yeah I hear ya. But put yourself in that position. Do you think little southern boys and girls questioned their slave holding parents? Doubtful that more than 2% thought it out of the ordinary when it was all they had ever known.
I fail to see you having a point?
If you claim a moral high-ground or authority as your church does and your prophet supposedly speaks to god, then you have to prove yourself better than the worst of the bunch. So far your church has proved to not even keep up with American governmental standards.
You keep failing to acknowledge this point. You keep answering the same answer even as I pointed out the failure of the answer. What is up with that? Seriously, are you having a hard time understanding this simple concept or are you being stubborn?

Every prophet in the Old Testament had faults and sinned. It did not make them less of a prophet.
Actually I do think it makes them less of a prophet. This is one reason I do not believe in any of the claimed prophets. None pass the test of having an ear to a god. I do not just hand out that trust to anyone, do you? BTW, Moses failed in a massive way. He ordered the murder of three thousand of his followers for making a golden calf. This puts in on par with Bin Laden.
Also your prophet did not just make a personal sin, he instructed the whole of the church to follow the concept that he claimed was what god wanted. And your church followed that order for over a hundred years. Now keep sweeping that under the rug.

In the dark ages they said the same thing about books. Half of the profit of the Crusades was "rediscovering" writings that had been burned by the church. In the 18th century, lightening rods were the devil's work.
Now, every time a hurricane, wildfire, earthquake, virus or drought hits the same ilk say that it's God's wrathful judgment. Anything and everything that they don't (want to) understand is suspicious at best and guilty until unavoidable.

If a prophet is no more important than a Deacon, then why did your church follow the immoral ideas of Brigham as if he were the big boss?

The Rich Man and Lazarus

19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him,‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

25 “But Abraham replied,‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

27 “He answered,‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my family, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

29 “Abraham replied,‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

30 “‘No, father Abraham,’ he said,‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’

31 “He said to him,‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”
