Who is "we" and "our"? Certainly that does not include you. You are wrong on all three counts. We do not have 1.) polygamy and 2.) blood oaths in the Temple vows. 3.) and I can not only have a Coke, but I CAN DRINK one as well. Drinking Coke was never meant to be included in the Word of Wisdom. That's what I find so funny about you "anti's," you always "know" more than actual members.

It's "wives," not "wife's."

Once again it's "wives," not "wife's." I think you might be mixing up Brigham Young with Joseph Smith, but that's neither here nor there. I do not believe in Brigham Young. I believe in Jesus Christ.

I am a active Mormon and I do know what I did. In 1967 when I did my temple endowments we did a blood oath from ear to ear. They just have you raise your right and swear now. 2- their is still polygamy in the temples as I am still sealed to my first wife that passed away and now sealed to my second. 3- caffiene is against the wow. Hot drinks and tea. I live in the heart of utah so you cannot say I'm lying. I also don't agree with the masonry ideals we use in our temples. The signs, tokens and handshakes we do are not Christ like.

They are the same. Both had more than 30 wives :) and both as young as 14. Know your church history before you answer

You are not active. If you were, you wouldn't be speaking the way you do and spewing out the same old tired anti crap found in YouTube cartoons and wikipedia. Furthermore, drinking coke was never included in the Word of Wisdom. It was only "implied" by over zealous members. As you said. It is "hot drinks" which has been said to mean coffee and certain types of tea. Also, just because you supposedly live in the "heart of Utah" doesn't mean your not lying. Where you live has nothing to do with honesty. I've been following your other posts since your arrival. You're nothing but another anti bent on spewing hate and misinformation. Next!

Again, what century is this? What we consider a child now and then are completely different. Teenagers in the 1800's and prior were treated as, and considered, adults. Faith had no bearing on teenagers marrying in the 1800's. Many married early and began their own families. That's a fact. So, once again, you fail. Next!

I remember when I was going through my first Temple Recommend interview and asking the Stake President about drinking Coke because a lot of members said it was against the Word of Wisdom. He said that it was not. That he, in fact, enjoyed drinking a coke when he went out to dinner. When going out to dinner with non-members, they would tell him he wasn't supposed to be drinking Coke. He then corrected them and used the opportunity to teach. I figured if he said it was okay, it was good enough for me.
So your stake president is just as hypocritical as you are and the rest of mormons out there.

Hot drinks = coffee and tea. Coffee and tea have relatively high levels of caffeine, therefore the reason LDS abstain from coffee and tea is because of the caffeine, therefore LDS abstain from all products containing caffeine. But not now, with new REVELATION FROM GOD TO THE PROPHETS we can drink it! Even mountain dew if you want to! Just don't plan on going into the temple if you cross that line and drink coffee or tea. They are from the devil and terrible for you! Can't wait for your response to this one, livinginthelandofcrazy.

I've already responded to this. Coke is not, nor was it ever, part of the Word of Wisdom. Hot drinks meaning coffee and some types of teas.

Nothing you have presented has "proved" me wrong. See, you're lying some more. First you're active, then you're ex, then you're not reading my posts, then you are. Hahahahahaha!!! You're pathetic.

LOL youre a funny one! I'd rather be pathetic than how you are. You said it's always been ok to drink coke. It was just said by the church that we can. Are you slow or something? I already told you im inbetween active and ex. Maybe I just proved you stupid for saying its always been like that when it hasnt. That's why out of utah mormons are different than the ones here. LIke you!

I'm glad you find me funny. I find you to be a complete liar as I will prove again. You never said you are in between active and ex. You said in this thread you were active. In the other thread, "Who says Mormons aren't Christian," you said you were ex. Nothing about being "inbetween" as you put it. I don't know how to dumb it down for you anymore than I already have. Coke was NEVER part of the Word of Wisdom. It's something over zealous members included on their own. Individual member interpretation which became supposed fact. Understand? Your really a one trick pony.

Making excuses again like you usually do. Kids back then were still kids. There's a reason why the piece o crap was tarred and feathered! The mormons were the only ones that took 14 year old girls and had sex with them. This was a hundred years ago!!! Youre sick and twisted. You are standing up for a married "prophet" that had sex with 14 year old young girls. Even Emma Smith did NOT agree with this. Even Oliver Cowldery said not to. But you go ahead and make your excuses!!! If you think it's ok for a 50 year old man to rape young women it's on you.

I don't care what you find. lmao You keep trying to investigate me. If you did the same with mormonism you wouldnt be mormon unless you were completely retarded.
