Hey angel is of a different species, so are human and god! Lucifer and the third that followed him are angels. Lucifer is an angel not a literal spirit child of god.... U moron need to differentiate the different species. God is the creator and we and angels are his creation or creatures. We will never become the creator or a god!

To be blameless, one had to be married to only one wife. God started marriages with only one man and one woman.
This was one of your more pathetically stupid attempts to prove how pathetically stupid you can be in a post and you succeeded!
Show me a single place in the entire Bible where God gave a king or prophet or leader of his people "things" that he stated he was against giving them, but he did it anyway. Show me that and you'll show evidence for your opinion.
Next, when did 'BLAMELESS' ever equate to meaning being the husband of one wife? What is wrong with you? Were you drunk when you wrote this post? Being blameless has absolutely not a single fricking thing to do with being married. Why don't you try Googling "what does being blameless mean in the Bible?" You might try Googling "having a blameless character". Nothing relative about marriage will show up, just telling you.

Duh, if people aren't going to be living together married, there won't be any marrying or given in marriage.
lol...man you are really thick for understanding things. You don't know if people married in this life won't remain married in the next life. You don't know that. There is nothing in the Bible that directly states for or against marriages in this life extending into the next life. You can have your belief all you want as did ancient Jews have their belief that marriage was eternal or like Mormons believe marriage is eternal. But your claim of what you say Jesus said when he didn't say it, you are your own liar.
Jesus said there would be no marrying and no giving in marriage in the resurrection.
Jesus said not a thing if marriages in this life would or wouldn't continue on in the next life.

Jesus's answer actually aligned itself with the Sadducees disbelief in a resurrection. The Sadducees didn't believe in a resurrection at all. And what did Jesus tell them? He said there is no marrying and no giving in marriage in the resurrection. So even though Jesus didn't state there would be no resurrection, he stated there would be no marrying or being given in marriage there which the sadducees would have liked to of heard. No belief in a resurrection to the sadducees meant no marrying or being given in marriage there. Jesus to them agreed with part of their thinking.
But Jesus didn't answer them their question.

Agreed, but the marriage is over at death:
Romans 7:2–3
2 For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage. 3 Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress.
Because she is no longer married.
<quoted text>
Again, I don't care about Jewish writings on the subject. I follow Jesus, and Jesus said we are to be like the angels i.e. not married.
Twist it all you want, but you are wrong. A blind man can see that.
That verse discusses a state of being in mortality. It doesn't address how things may or may not continue on in the afterlife.
And your error is not caring about Jewish writings. Jews got their laws from God, not a man. For you not to care about Jewish writings and beliefs is to disrespect God himself and you seem cool about doing that as usual.
And you are blind to the word of God. You limit God. You tell God what he believes and what he doesn't believe. You tell God you know things better than he does. You have tossed all of God into a book with a beginning and an ending and you tell God that is where his existence is bound to. God said to do as he did. You say it's okay to make exceptions to what God said.
When you stop telling God how things are, I'll wager his Spirit might visit you a bit more often than it does at present. In the meantime, Satan loves a guy like you that tells God how things are and he'll spend a lot of time convincing you to maintain that belief you have, that you know what's best for God to think and believe.

When was the last time, if ever, you’ve been proud of and praised God for your sin?

LDS:
Adam & Eve Praise God for Their Sin
Moses 5:11; “And Eve, his wife, heard all these things and was glad, saying: Were it not for our transgression we never should have had seed, and never should have known good and evil, and the joy of our redemption, and the eternal life which God giveth unto all the obedient.”

Christianity:
Genesis 3:9-16; “And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”

Sure it does, if the woman was still married to her husband for eternity, she would still be under the laws regarding marriage even if her husband were dead.
And your error is not caring about Jewish writings. Jews got their laws from God, not a man. For you not to care about Jewish writings and beliefs is to disrespect God himself and you seem cool about doing that as usual.
I do care about the Jewish writings called the Old Testament. It does not teach eternal marriage. What you are quoting is not scripture.
And you are blind to the word of God.
Those writings aren't scripture, even to the Jews. Opinion, no matter how old it is, is still opinion.
You limit God. You tell God what he believes and what he doesn't believe.
I tell you what he said, and don't make up teachings that aren't there.
You tell God you know things better than he does. You have tossed all of God into a book with a beginning and an ending and you tell God that is where his existence is bound to.
He is the one who bound those books together so I can learn what he is. You want to add fairytales and teachings that can't be found.
God said to do as he did. You say it's okay to make exceptions to what God said.
You are the one makes laws that don't exist.
When you stop telling God how things are, I'll wager his Spirit might visit you a bit more often than it does at present.
He did, that is why I left Mormonism.
In the meantime, Satan loves a guy like you that tells God how things are and he'll spend a lot of time convincing you to maintain that belief you have, that you know what's best for God to think and believe.
You are the one making Satan happy by calling evil, good, and good, evil.

You have more then shown that your knowledge of scripture is wrapped beyond redemption or salvation.

Dude, you make me laugh!

Do you realize you are debating with God?

Dana's doctrines are just wrong, multiple marriages existed in the Biblical times also...

Take Solomon for instance.

//1 Kings 3:
5 In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

Solomon asks for wisdom verses 6-10

11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

God gave him more than what he asked for:

13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

God made an agreement with Solomon:

14 And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

Solomon' wisdom:

16 ¶Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him.

17 And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house.

18 And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house.

19 And this woman’s child died in the night; because she overlaid it.

20 And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom.

21 And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear.

22 And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king.

23 Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living.

24 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king.

25 And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.

26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it.

27 Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof.

28 And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.

//1 Kings 4:
21 And Solomon reigned over all kingdoms from the river unto the land of the Philistines, and unto the border of Egypt: they brought presents, and served Solomon all the days of his life.

//1 Kings 9:
God appears to Solomon again and promises:
great blessings if the Israelites are obedient and
great cursings if they forsake Him

During Solomon' 40 year reign as King he had 700 wives, and 300 concubines...

//1 Kings 11:
Solomon marries non-Israelite women, and his wives turned his heart to the worshiping false gods and THAT is when God took his blessings away.

God did not take the blessings away for marrying the women, he took it because Solomon turned his heart way from God.

WAIT a minute...

I disagree with your theory about what exactly the God taught and how it happened. As the Dark Ages created the ORIGINAL "Bible" taken burned...

Now, this is fact, history...

Christians were:

* burned at the stake for teaching their children the Lord's prayer.

* buried alive.

* beaten and tortured to death.

* and worse... anyone who studied Scripture that was not approved of by the RC at that time...

The RC translated the Bible that was considered the original from Greek to Latin...

and burned all Documents that were Original...

The RC were wrong for doing this.

Read the HISTORY of Martin Luther, William Tyndale, John Wycliff, omgosh so many who tried to stand up to the RC were burned at the stake...

for saying the public needs to be allowed to study scripture... burned if they did not recant and preach that they were wrong and the RC where right in only allowing instruction from their translation for MONEY.

//

more historical educate lesson...

Furthermore, when the Bible was translated King Henry the IIIV modified it ... it was called "Great Bible"

He demanded that the translations take out all teaching that were offensive in his opinion.

//

Then Queen Mary succeeded her Father... "Bloody Mary".

She took away the rights to study independently from the RC teachings and went on a slaughter in her 5 year reign... and burned all Scriptures available...(very few survived).

//

Her sister succeeded her... and gave back the rights to the people to but the past was hard to overcome...

The RC took the Scriptures away from the public... slaughtering anyone who studying independently.

Costing lives to give the scripture back to the public.

Then Studying independently was taken away again... slaughtering people who were teaching the Gospel in Bloody Marys Father's reign though it was told they had the right to do so.

Then given back again... people were afraid...

When the scriptures finally were translated and people allowed to study translations were lost, modified, taken away from, added to.

The ORIGINAL is LOST... at this time. There is NO WAY you can say that your theory above is correct... things were taken from.

//

The Book of Mormon was buried and given back at a time after the Dark Ages, so they would not be taken away from

The Dead Sea Scrolls were buried and given back at a time after the Dark Ages, so they would not be taken away from

There are MORE Scriptures that we are not allowed to have at this time... we are told that... because we are not ready for them.

The problem with your tactics is you are too busy justifying your theories, instead of researching HISTORY, truths.

Now, you do not know me...

You don't know who I am...

There is no way you can know me...

I have told you, Sam has told you, No Surprise has told you, Google has told you I am not Carol.

//

If you look at the history of Googles posts and my post and compare them...

1) our syntax are consistently "not" the same,

2.1) Google knows about the Jewish culture. He speaks much stronger than I do in his posts.
2.2) I focus on Duty, Documentation, Authority, History and Archeology.

3) Your made up believes are a tactic to divert truths that you make up your own theories and what you will believe or not.

//

I don't care what you believe because I know the truth

Next you will say I am Carey, or No Surprise, or perhaps Sam...

- YOU ARE WRONG and you know it,

- This is your TACTIC to divert, confuse, and distort truths.
