One can then just believe without joining any church according to your answer. Christians that commit horrendous crimes will then be with God too. That may cause some Christians to think crime is no big deal.

I disagree that faith and reason are mutually exclusive. I have faith, but I still try to figure out how it all works out together.
But I have never denied that I have faith rather than proof of anything. I have presented evidence of a miracle. The Bible, Book of Mormon, Koran, and Dead Sea Scrolls are all evidence that Jesus Christ existed and influenced millions.
But please, continue to try to discredit Joseph, Jesus, and Moses, or other prophets. I enjoy the conversation.
This is an aside, but proving that Jesus lived and was influential does not offer any support for the claim that he was divine or rose from the dead.

I'm sort of agnostic on the historicity of Jesus personally. I don't see much compelling reason to believe or disbelieve that such a person lived.

Its the magic parts that I find unbelievable.

I like the way you debate without resorting to tons of scripture to support your views. You are among the few Christians who debate well and defend your faith without coming unglued.

Do you train members of your church to prepare them for their two year ministry?

Nothing, he was not able to speak. There is a video of this but I am sure that you are going to tell some lie.
But what does Lavey have to do with anything? I do not follow Lavey

I'm not one that believes the Bible is inerrant. Men have taken books out of what should have been included in the canon. Men interpreted the scriptures to derive a trinitarian belief. Men interpreted the nature of God as well.
So I believe the Bible so far as it is translated correctly.
There are so many more scriptures that tell us that Jesus and the Father are not the same individual.
I'm still waiting for you to tell us---who decides what is translated correctly and what is not! As far as the trinitarian belief it started with Roman Emporer Constintine in about 300 AD and cannot be supported by the Bible.
Would you like to list the books that have been taken out of what should be included in the canon? And please don't tell me one of them is the book of Moses---I've already been there!

I took a screen shot of your death threat in case Topix erases it. i did report this criminal activity and I will be following up tomorrow with the proper authorities.
A hate crime across the states is a federal crime.
Death threats like this are serious crimes, hope that you get along good with big Bubba

Hate Crime is indeed taken very seriously... So what crime has Anton levey done ? has he murdered you, raped you, physically assaulted you, robbed you? I think you are grasping at straws at best, but if you are willing to invest the time, effort, and $$$ into this , knock yourself out. With that being said, do you actually think the proper authorities will consider this a valid and legit threat that could be acted upon/ in other words, does this person KNOW YOU and know where you live? Do you REALLY FEEL your life is in danger? lol

Oh no. You apparently have not been reading. One must do more than just believe. Faith without works is dead.

Too many references about Him from different sources for me to not believe He lived. But I believe He is the Son of God because I asked in prayer and received an answer from the Holy Ghost. Other than that, I have no proof. Only faith.

Well besides normal Sunday and Wednesday activities that they don't really pay attention to, we try to have a family night once a week.
Then if they decide to go on a mission, they go off to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) to learn what to do and what not to do, as well as start learning the foreign language they will be using if they go somewhere non-native for them. So it could be 2 weeks to 6 weeks depending on the language.

Have you ever googled the books that are mentioned in the Bible that we no longer have access to? It's a shame we don't have all those.

Oh and I agree with you about the Trinity.

Only the Holy Ghost can tell us what had been translated correctly. And yes I believe a prophet would have the ability to correct the errors. Joseph Smith began this work but did not finish it.
