I am aware of human limitations-physical and mentally. Be there a God or not, I live to discover what existance is all about and what in life there is to ecperience, learn from and grow from those endevours. I find evidence of continued exsistance beyond the physical body. Yet I still have to see something a bit more substanial to claim there is a god. Any religion to me is just nothing more than hearsay. I am open minded to the possibility of eternity. I cannot just go along with a belief just because a book or person says so.
Are you OK? Are you doing better. I am working several jobs and doing better. Can I send you money?

When I served as an LDS missionary on of the missionaries complained to my mission president that I was a know it all. My mission president said that was only half the problem. The other problem is that I do (according to him) I am truly sorry for my arrogance. I just get really tired of what I think is ignorance. I hate technology, but am forced to use it. When I took the national test for my profession I did it in a few minutes. My profession no longer wants me as I am too brilliant and hate technology. So I work many jobs and get assistance from the Mormon Church. Perhaps I am just old. I am almost ready to get social security.

I would not care if Non Mormons criticized Mormonism. We need the criticism. First, they need to have a clue what Mormonism is.

Thank you,great dane. More than ever I am convinced that mormonism is not at all a christian religion,save semantics. If you are convinced of it's authenticity,then all the power to you.

Steve,your welcome, Mormonism is not Catholic, Orthodox, Coptic, Nestorian, Arian, Calvinistic, or Arminian, but to say it is not Christian is debatable. Nobody really knows what Christianity really is. That is why we are all fighting about it. If it were so easy to define there would only be one form of Christianity.

Steve look up Jewish Henotheism and the Ugaritic text. Many of the experts now agree with Mormonism. Sorry, but it is a fact.

God is the Blessed Trinity:Father,Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus is the only begotton son of the Father-God in human flesh. There is'nt a multitude of gods and saviors and planets waiting for us to be raised to godlike,divine status of exaltation. Nothing you or anyone else says or rationalize can change this reality.

And it is so because Mary says so. She does not need any reasons. We just have to follow her and have no choice. Kind of like being a Catholic in the middle ages. Gee Mary do you still believe the earth is the center of the universe?

There are other planets out there Mary. Earth is not the only planet, and if there are people on other planets they need God and a Savior too. Do you really think Earth is it? Who is the prejudiced nut here? Mormon doctrine (found in Mormon scripture) just says people will be be gods, saviors on Mt. Zion and progress worlds without end, or probably even more nebulous than that. Read D.C. 76 and the Book or Abraham yourself. It is pretty nebulous. Mary is quoting Mormons and non Mormons who have extrapolated and speculated beyond scripture but it is not doctrine. It is kind of like Limbo. Limbo for Catholics speculation not doctrine. Please get a clue Mary.

I believe what 18,000 DVDs say.

I mean really, it's 18,000....that's a lot of proof.

Dilf, Mormons have made millions of dvd's that must make them right. Are you serious or are you joking? The DVD was made by a bunch of unqualified idiots who do not know the first thing about Mormonism. They think Christian means John Darby American Evangelicalism. Seriously are there any college educated people on this blog, thread or whatever you want to call it?

GD,If you truely represent the lds faith,then you are a visible sign of the falsehood of mormonism. Joseph smith sought to humanize God and,in so doing,elevate himself to diety. I think this is at the core of your rational. You condemn the Church as outdated and archaic;I see it as preserving the faith ,just as Jesus promised it would. You see those who don't agree with you as unintelligent and lost;I see you as a narcissus who,like joseph smith,looks in the mirror and sees a god.

I am not a representative of the faith. I am simply a member. I really do not like myself except I do admire my brain when I run into people like you. It is wrong because I am arrogant and prideful but unlike you Mary I am not perfect yet. The Catholic church did not endure and is not the heir to Christ. The scripture in Matthew probably had more to do with the rock of revelation than Peter. We do not even know what Christ really ever said because he spoke in Aramic and the text is in Greek so guess what? We do not have the original words. Blessed are you Peter the rock because the rock of revelation has revealed it to you and in the end revelation will allow the captive in Hell to be let out of the gate and free.

Catholics did not even think of relating the rock verse to their church until hundreds of years latter.

Great dane,give me evidence of mormon validity. You mentioned miracles. Where is there any evidence? Any kind of public scrutiny. Where is the data that the mormon church far outstrips the Catholic Church in terms of charitable outlays,a perposterous assertion. Where are the archeological facts to sustain your new world claims. Is there any evidence whatsoever of your infinitely multiple gods and their kingdoms. Something other than mormon hearsay. Anything that has been given any kind of public scrutiny,secular or not. It must be very difficult since mormonism intensely avoids any kind of outside scrutiny.

Steve you must be new to Mormonism because you seem to be ignorant. Have you seen the movie 17 miracles? Ever hear of when the Mormons were in Ohio and dozens saw angels, Joseph Smith and others rose people from the dead, the sea gull miracle, the quale miracle. Myself and many Mormons I know have also witnessed miracles, but scripture say to be careful about sharing these experiences. If you knew anything about The Book of Mormon and languages you would see the miracle. I am a linguist and can tell from the syntax alone it is of ancient derivation.

Any evidence of Mormon validity. Have you slept the last two decades away Steve. Nahum, Sheum?(ancient assyrian grain mentioned in Book of Mormon before it was discovered, tale of the Recahbites being pretty much of a discovery linked to Nephi, Lamanai, Reform Egyptian tied to Nubia and Mayans, gold copper alloy books. Steve please look up fair lds or Jeff Lindsay. Are you too lazy to do your own research? Also what is it with all you Non Mormons. Why do I have to answer your questions, must do all the research for you, and yet you neither answer questions or provide research.

Where is the evidence of Apostolic succession in Christianity Steve, If the trinity was such an obvious doctrine in the New Testament why was Phillip so clueless. Why are Protestant and Catholic inventions more crucial than the bible itself? The bible tells me to believe in Christ, get baptized, repent, live a better life. It says nothing about popes, bible alone, devotion to Mary ect.

I believe I said the Mormon church donates to Catholic charities, but the Catholic church does not give to Mormon charities. As far as I know that is true. Catholics spend about 171 billion a year but only about 3 billion is for the type of charity I was talking about. I am excluding hospitals, schools, ect. I just meant helping the poor with food, shelter, ect. Mormons spend 50 million in general aid but probably about 200 to 500 million if you count local wards. Catholics get some of their money from medicaid. Mormons I think get some money from Italian taxpayers who force everybody to pay for all religions. It is till amazing to me that Mormons with 16 million do so much and Catholics with over supposedly with over a billion do so little relative their numbers. If I said Catholics spend more money I was wrong. Can you quote what I said?
