Jesus was speaking of a future generation when He said "this generation." Not so with Joseph Smith. If you look at the historical accounts of what Mormons believed Smith meant, and even what Smith said himself, he was referring to the people living in the 1800's. (Feb 22, 2012 | post #27)
http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=vS3Zz prmaZA One of the things that came out a recent discussion with some JWs was the Watchtower idea that Satan is in control of this world. The conversation was so shocking that I decided to do a "Quick Questions For Jehovah's Witnesses" video on the subject. Can you believe that they actually trust what Satan said about a certain topic even though Jesus said the opposite? (Mar 2, 2011 | post #1)
What is wrong with focusing on His death? Aren't you supposed to do that every Sunday at sacrament anyway? (Mar 2, 2011 | post #252)
I'm not sure what any of this has to do with the cross. (Mar 2, 2011 | post #251)
Please provide your interpretation of Hebrews 1:1-2. Do you not see the obvious contrast thereI never said God does not speak to us today. Please re-read what I said. I just believe that God speaks to us differently... like Hebrews one statesPlease don't tell me what I believe. I did not say that God is incapable. I said he changed His means of communication... Just like Hebrews one saysNo, I have told you how GOD says He speaks to us today. Who am I or you or anyone else to tell God how He *should* speak to us especially in the light of the fact that He told us howYou know what? Let's get down to the bottom line here. Please give me one example of something that your prophet has said in general conference in the last ten years that you needed to know. Please just ONE example. Mind you, I am talking about something that has not already been revealed. You say you need prophets on earth today so that we can hear God, fine, prove it. What have they said latelyYou are missing my point. The Christians had the OT and the majority of the New. The obvious truth is that when Paul wrote this, they already HAD what they needed. Btw, if you do not know how to break up the code, I can explain it for you. It would make it much easier on me to be able to read your posts. Let me know and I'd be glad to help.

I am thankful that you admit that my interpretation is correct. The plain fact of the matter is that we are all to expect the second coming in our generation. However, first generation Latter-day Saints made it abundantly clear that Smith prophesied that *their* generation would see the temple built in Jackson county. I'm going to be at the empty temple lot in a couple of weeks. (Feb 28, 2011 | post #18)
If you are referring to my quotation of Hebrews 1, it obviously could not be talking about SmithJust because I don't believe that there is additional scripture after the Bible does not mean that I believe that God is silent. The Holy Spirit communes with believers and God speaks to us through the pages of ScriptureHere is what you are not taking into consideration though. 2 Timothy 3:15-17 says; "15And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. If the Bible is enough to make us wise for salvation, is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, instruction in righteousness and furnished for ALL good works, then why do I need another book when we are already fully equipped? To assert that I need more is to deny this passage. (Feb 25, 2011 | post #13)
Jesus was not referring to the generation to which He was speaking. He was referring to the generation which will see the culmination of the events He described later on in Matthew 24. (Feb 25, 2011 | post #12)
This video is a response to one of the comments from a previous video about the unchangeable nature of God. It is amazing to see the mental, semantical and hermeneutical gymnastics that Mormons will attempt in order to avoid a clear understanding of a Book of Mormon passage that disagrees with Mormonism. Feel free to rate, comment and pass my Quick Questions for Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons along to others. Thanks and God bless you for HIS glory!

God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his child before the law was given in Exodus 20. Had God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son after the law, He would be in violation of His own commandment. In other words, God would not command me to kill my child now because it would contradict previous revelationThis is total speculation. Nowhere do we see a command by God for Abraham to take Hagar as a wife. To say that Abraham prayed about it and received confirmation from God is an argument from silenceWe are going to have to agree to disagree on this. Some of the men were unaware of Smith's actions. Btw, where is Smith's revelation allowing polyandry? (Feb 24, 2011 | post #34)
I appreciate the complimentSure, I'll speak on this again. Let me go back over some of your posts and then I'll write my comments. Btw, I'm up to #37 for my Quick Questions For Mormons, #35 for JW's and #28 for Quick Questions For Gun Control Advocates on my personal YT Channel... but that is another topic. ;-) (Feb 24, 2011 | post #33)
Hmmm. It looks like I messed up the code in my previous post. (Feb 24, 2011 | post #9)
Have you ever considered Hebrews 1:1-2? "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;" I find it ironic that those who call themselves "latter-day saints" look to the way things were done in the past rather than how God communicates to us in these last days. (Feb 24, 2011 | post #8)
I understand it perfectly. I just wanted to see if there were any Mormons honest enough to admit that they think Christians are fools for trusting in the Bible alone. Are you that Mormon? (Feb 23, 2011 | post #6)
I have been interested in Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons for quite some time and follow the news regarding these religions. I am part of a Christian community which monitors the groups so I have access to different news items and topics that others may not have. I have written articles about Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons that have appeared in the San Antonio Express News and other papers. I have also been interviewed on radio and TV, both locally and nationally. Although I am a Christian and disagree with Witness and Mormon theology, I am fair and balanced in my writing and reporting. Even though I am a critic of thess religions, I can honestly say that I love the people who are members. I have never been a Jehovah's Witness or Mormon so I don't have an axe to grind. My writing style is courteous, engaging, logical and to the point. Being a topix editor will just be one more way in which I can participate in the world, culture and theology of the Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons.
