Nephi – ISIS What is the difference?

Posted by coventryrm on Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Seems to me the only difference between ISIS and Nephi is whether or not you actually believe God is (or was) talking to these individuals.

4:12 And it came to pass that the Spirit said unto me again: Slay him, for the Lord hath delivered him into thy hands;

4:13 Behold the Lord slayeth the wicked to bring forth his righteous purposes. It is better that one man should perish than that a nation should dwindle and perish in unbelief.
4:14 And now, when I, Nephi, had heard these words, I remembered the words of the Lord which he spake unto me in the wilderness, saying that: Inasmuch as thy seed shall keep my commandments, they shall prosper in the land of promise.
4:15 Yea, and I also thought that they could not keep the commandments of the Lord according to the law of Moses, save they should have the law.
4:16 And I also knew that the law was engraven upon the plates of brass.
4:17 And again, I knew that the Lord had delivered Laban into my hands for this cause — that I might obtain the records according to his commandments.
4:18 Therefore I did obey the voice of the Spirit, and took Laban by the hair of the head, and I smote off his head with his own sword.

Ordain Mormon Women

Posted by skiutah on Monday, June 23, 2014

This woman is about 20 or 30 years too early in her quest to hold the Mormon priesthood: Mormon woman facing excommuncation

Just like Black people, the Mormon leaders will eventually realize there’s a huge upside to allowing women to hold the priesthood, but because of the hardness of their hearts, it will take the Mormon leaders about 20 or 30 years longer than the rest of the world to receive this revelation…

Here’s an interesting story about a guy trying to debate evolution versus intelligent design:

This Utah woman bought all of a store’s shirts that had a picture of a scantily clad woman on the front: Utah woman buys porn shirts

She just guaranteed a huge amount of free publicity for these shirts and will drive up the demand for these shirts that nobody would have paid attention to otherwise.

Group Unveils Satan Statue Design for OK

Posted by skiutah on Monday, January 13, 2014

A religious group wants to put a statue of Satan at the Oklahoma state capital: Satan statue going to Oklahoma

Person A: My religion is correct, yours is wrong.
Person B: No, my religion is correct, yours is wrong.

The logical answer is that they’re all wrong. Humans have been arguing (and killing) like this for thousands and thousands of years…

Medical Studies Show Marijuana Cures Cancer

Posted by skiutah on Monday, November 25, 2013

Here’s an article that documents many medical studies that show marijuana helps cure cancer: Studies that show marijuana cures cancer

I’ve never tried pot myself, but living in Colorado, I think I would try marijuana if I had some form of cancer.

By the way, for those of you that live in states where marijuana is illegal, the side effects of legalizing pot seem to be increased tax revenues and lower drug related crime rates…

Electrick Children

Posted by skiutah on Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Here’s a movie about a Mormon girl who believes she’s become miraculously impregnated (like Mary): Electrick Children

The young girl’s parents (devout believers in Jesus) know it’s impossible for her to become miraculously impregnated.

Thus the movie highlights an ironic flaw in human nature: Intelligent people can accept as true the unbelievable while simultaneously reasoning the belief is false.
