You have that wrong... I'm not the evidence, but I have read and seen that the evidence exists.

I don't have to depend on people to write opinions like you do.. then like you go copy and paste their opinions and say oh, oh, that's evidence.

My uncle was a Mormon for years. Before he left the church, he wouldn't answer even one of the more pointed questions posed to him at the time. Now that he has left the church, he has told us all about it. Let me tell you something about my uncle - never a more honest man has walked the face of the earth unless it was Christ Himself - the real one and not the made-up Mormon Jesus either. The things that are done in the temple and in the name of Jesus are ATROCITIES and that IS putting it nicely.
They will have plenty to answer for on Judgement Day. Distorting the Word of God to suit themselves and their own personal ambitions? Not to mention leading others astray? Well, you know what the Bible (the real one - not the made-up Mormom bible either) says about those folks, right? It would be better for them if they tied a millstone around their necks and threw themselves into the sea.
I think you’ve done a lot to make people think about what they’re doing because it‘s a first-hand account.
It’s all about getting people to think about where they’re putting their faith and loyalty -- either to a man who was a real criminal and the lies promoted by liars, or to the one Savior, and God’s plan for His people.

Judge much??? The questions were hypothetical and largely based on my interactions and observations of "so-called" Christians living in the community in which I live and work. In a nutshell, you're not only judgmental, but clueless, and naive.
You asked questions, but when you got answers you obviously didn't like, YOU became judgmental. At least have the guts to admit the truth.

You're right that I asked "you" questions. However, you assumed that I was asking those questions in regard to myself, then made judgements about me, while making anti- LDS comments. That's not me being judgmental. That's fact..

What should amaze you is for 30 years as a Mormon you never paid attention in Sunday school or priesthood meetings to hear the teacher on occasion state polygamy wasn't a law given to every elder under Smith and Young. And now that you have stated an out right pathetic lie that polygamy was given as a law for every elder to obey which it wasn't, now you don't have the decent honesty to admit you were wrong. So now you'd rather continue with your lie and maintain the status as a liar which you don't seem to mind being.
Being honest isn't hard. But maintaining the stupid pathetic ignorant lie you're maintaining because you can't be honest, that's true proven stupidity and ignorance. But you keep at what you do best, being dishonest in the face of historical facts.
It isn't a lie when it is published in every D&C in the world. The D&C is a book of "revelations". Therefore, every member who has a copy of the D&C has had 132 "revealed" to them. That is the purpose of "revelations", to "reveal". Crapping your pants isn't going to change that. Name calling like a 5th grader isn't change that. Throwing hissy fits isn't going to change that.

Since you suffer brain farts that prevent you from remembering how to do research on the internet, pretend this writing is a towel for you to wipe the crap from your brain so you can digest the information intelligently for a moment okay?
"The history of polygamy begins in ancient times and is recorded in the Bible. Some of the men who practiced plural marriage then were sinning because they had not specifically been commanded by God to do so. Joseph Smith stated:“I have constantly said no man shall have but one wife at a time, unless the Lord directs otherwise”(Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, page 324)."
Now please read again s-l-o-w-l-y....
Joseph Smith stated:“I have constantly said no man shall have but one wife at a time, unless the Lord directs otherwise”(UNLESS THE LORD DIRECTS OTHERWISE)(Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, page 324)."
According to Smith, apparently the "Lord" did. Hence D&C 132. DUH!

You don't care what Grant said? Liar. You stated in a previous post you were going to try and contact him by phone and in the following post you stated..."Well, I'll look into it anyway, if you don't mind." Yet you stated you didn't care what Grant said when you replied..."Now ask me if I care."
Liar. If you didn't care what he said you wouldn't try to contact him or look into what he said. Liar.
No, I don't care if you "don't even find it really interesting. Amusing maybe."

lolol....No you weren't. If you posted like me at all, you wouldn't lie as much as you do and when you say something that's wrong, you'd admit it. And you lie consistently and you next to never admit when you're wrong, you'd rather continue being wrong than be honest about being wrong.
Next, I was asking for a list of prophets accepted by Christians since the death of Christ, not prior to Christ. See, you fail to understand their were no Christians prior to Jesus to accept any prophets so you were wrong in your response twice.
Blah, blah, blah....

Monsons statement...tithing IS obedience and don't start fires. There wasn't anything else.
And Jesus told the rich guy if he wanted salvation he had to sell all he owned and that isn't a command for strict obedience to being told to make oneself poor if one wanted Jesus's salvation?
Dana was making a pathetic extreme point as usual so I did the same as he did. He stated hypocritically I was wrong to do what he did in being extreme and you come to his aid to state he was correct? That he could make an extreme statement but I couldn't? Why am I not surprised.

The only one that has proven over and over that they would rather twist words to perpetuate a lie for their own sick reasoning is you.
The command for polygamy was not for all Mormons.
The command for polygamy was never a command for the entire church to obey.
The command for polygamy was to be authorized by Smith to those he said could partake in it and was authorized by Young to those he said could partake in it.
The fact you are ignoring Mormon history to continue your lie shows you like to be a liar instead of being honest.
There was a commandment for polygamy. But the commandment was not said to be a revelation for every member. The fact that most elders under Smith weren't observing the commandment of polygamy and remaining an elder in good standing proves this. The fact that most elders under Young weren't observing the commandment of polygamy and remained elders in good standing proves that.
But of course you will ignore all that factual information that you can read on the net and will choose to remain a liar and state all Mormons had to obey the law of polygamy. So what else isn't new about you?

3 Therefore, prepare thy heart to receive and obey the instructions which I am about to give unto you; for all those who have this law revealed unto them must obey the same.

Joseph Smith stated:“I have constantly said no man shall have but one wife at a time, unless the Lord directs otherwise”(UNLESS THE LORD DIRECTS OTHERWISE)(Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, page 324)."

Do note in the below that the reference is for ONE WIFE, not wifes, not wives, not many wives or many wifes. The reference is for ONE WIFE.

15 Therefore, if a man marry him a wife in the world,

18 And again, verily I say unto you, if a man marry a wife,

19 And again, verily I say unto you, if a man amarry a wife by my word,

26 Verily, verily, I say unto you, if a man marry a wife according to my word,

Now following v26 you will note that "wives" are used in plural. What this means to the intelligent reader that has no bias is DC 132 speaks of marriage conditions for monogamy and polygamy. I suppose as usual that'll exclude you as you are biased and that keeps you from using reasonable intelligence.
