Proof?

I was just going through all the messages on the board and realized that almost every single Christian (I choose to seperate the terms mormons and Christians) have given logical arguments concerning the bible. All of the mormons seem to hide behind their mantra that they repeat over and over again in order to help them (or assure themselves) that they hold the truth. I want to see even one mormon give a reliable fact that can prove the validity of Mormon doctrine.

Mormon "truth" from racism to salvation

Mormon 210, I asked you the following: “Am I correct in interpreting what you have said is that salvation is bestowed upon man by other men?” You answered: "Your half correct. My explanation clearly said “bestow” and “authority”. Two words we use regularly. Particularly authority. As Christ went to be baptized (since he was perfect why was he baptized, additionally, why didn’t he just grab the local believer instead of seeking out John). Hebrews talks about authority, the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants specifically define the authority.

Lets talk fact not fiction....

The american Indian is who you claim is the Laminites...help me out here...What time frame did they change from Jews to Indians? Was it all of a sudden or a gradual change? Was there language changed? The beards of there face disappeared? And was the knowlege of all the great cities and monies and mining forgotten? I would like to go exploring with Just Passing thru to go to the different tribes and research there heritage and see if there history supports how they came into being? Any support out there...Lets take some vacation time...

angels

On easter sunday a three year old boy that is dieing because he has a brain tumor bore his testomony. It was amazing my mom said it was just like a testomony from an angel. It has really had me thinking and I have been having a hard time lately with things. My good friend told me I just really need to pray. I have a hard time praying though because I think it is weird to talk to what seems yourself though I know im not. Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do?

On to VOY.com?

I agree, Mormon. It's too difficult to follow in here. Your last post for some reason is even cutting off the last few words of each line. Would you mind reposting "Answers Part ll" on VOY? We can continue from there. Thanks LDS_DH

Holy Days/Holidays

Do you have any religious celebrations in the Mormon faith? (for example: Christmas, Easter, Saint Days) If so, What are they, and when are they celebrated? If not, Why? Also, is fasting practiced by faithful Mormons? What can you tell me about these things?

Savior of the World

I have heard that you believe that Jesus was elected in a heavenly council by God to be the savior of Earth, and that Lucifer was his brother before he became the devil. And it was for that reason that Lucifer became jelous and rebelled againt God and was banished to the Earth. Is this true? If not, what are your beliefs?

jehovah witnesses

on of the missionaries thats in my branch for the time, told me that Jehovah Witnesses weren't allowed to be friends with mormons. I have a J.W. friend, and when i asked her if they were allowed to be friends with mormons, she said yes. so i want to know one thing, are they or aren't they allowed to be friends with mormons

NEW

I JUST WANTED TO SAY HELLOW TO EVERYONE, I AM CURRENTLY INTERESTED IN BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. I HAVE TALKED TO TWO GENTLEMEN FROM THE LOCAL CHURCH. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY PERSONAL EXPERIENCES THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO SHARE. EXPERIENCES LIKE WHEN THEY ACCEPTED GOD AND WHEN THEY KNEW BECAUSE OF GOD THEY HAD PEACE IN THEIR HEARTS. THANK YOU!

Reconciliation

I have been researching the Mormon faith for a few months and have been reading the Book of Mormon every day. In searching, I have come across doctrines that seem to conflict. For example, the idea of the Father Son and Holy Spirit as three separate entities. As far as I have read, the Book of Mormon states specifically that they are one. I may have incorrect information, but if not, how do I sort through the information from the BOM, D&C, and Pearl? Is one more influential than another? Which one states the current doctrine? Please help.

Celestial Law

I'll ask again since I haven't had anyone respond yet. According to D&C 88:22, a person who "is not able to abide the law of a celestial kingdom cannot abide a celestial glory." Are you abiding a celestial law?

Would it be wrong???

Okay, there is this missionary in my ward, which talks to my friend who is a new member all the time. This missionary tells her that he really likes me a lot but he is trying so hard not to think of me till he gets home from his mission, because he wants to concentrate on his work for Heavenly Father. I never did think of him in any other way then a missionary, but now my feelings are starting to change. I have prayed about this many times, and am not to sure what the Lord wants me to do. Would it be wrong if I talked to him when he got off his mission.

here is one to grow on

Catholics do not just repeat the same prayer over and over again when they pray the Rosary. The Rosary is a progression of many prayers--the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Gloria, the Hail Mary and the Salve Regina--and these prayers are accompanied by many holy meditations. As the Rosary progresses, Catholics meditate on the joyful, the sorrowful, and the glorious mysteries of the life of Christ and His Mother.

Re: Should a Mormon teenager leave his parents home

My question is: Should a Mormon teen, who is being severly punished at home (like being locked in the garage to sleep - all night - for calling one of his friends, on the phone), leave his home and go to live with another family? How is this viewed by his church? How is a controlling parent viewed? Should the mother stand up against her husband, for her child? Is a non-Mormon family wrong - in the eyes of the Mormon church - for taking this teenager in to live with them? I am interested in answers to all questions. Thank you.
