But it does promote a 'Plan of Happiness' that emphasizes your very own personal flourishing. “Nelson was not promising his listeners professional success just for paying tithing.

I had a couple of missionaries stop by wanting to talk about Jesus. I asked them about the Book Of Abraham and Book of Mormon references to the Curse of Cain being black skin and they acted like it didn’t exist. I asked about the Law of the Priesthood found in Doctrine and Covenants 132:62-65, again, they acted like it didn’t exist and denied it was a Law. I don’t have any scriptures to

She says she has found meaning of life and her purpose in Christianity. “It has it all” according to her. Of course that worldview is what got Western Civilization stuck in the Dark Ages for 1,000yrs, but Nevermind the Elightenment or the Renaissance, the Age of Reason.

“Atheism failed to answer a simple question: what is the meaning and purpose of life?“ AHA Atheism never pretended to offer any answers to the question of meaning of life or purpose, Other than to say we should be able to agree upon certain facts of reality, rather than the superstitious beliefs we inherited through a long line of dupes.

“Yet I would not be truthful if I attributed my embrace of Christianity solely to the realisation that atheism is too weak and divisive a doctrine to fortify us against our menacing foes. I have also turned to Christianity because I ultimately found life without any spiritual solace unendurable — indeed very nearly self-destructive. Atheism failed to answer a simple question: what is the mean

She is a politician after all. I get her hatred of Islam as a woman who grew up in a Somali village, and had no choice but to get circumcizer before being forcibly 'married' to a relative at 14yo. I'd hate Islam if I were her too. I'm with her on her criticism of Islam, 99%. She's probably even more extreme than me still on Islam. I'm willing to admit that she's probably right about it,

I think they completely overlooked the effects of phthalates on male reproduction. “To conclude, phthalates are man-made chemicals used in the plastic industry. There are several ways to be exposed to phthalates, mainly via inhalation, ingestion, and transplacental transition. Phthalates belong to the chemicals known as EDs. They modulate the hormonal balance of the matured organism as well

I’d be a fitting tribute to their Mighty Whitey Jesus if they post these white supremacist scriptures, written in stone, all over the park! 1 Nephi 11:13 (Mary): “She was exceedingly fair and white.” 1 Nephi 12:23 (prophecy of the Lamanites): “Became a dark, and loathsome, and a filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations.” 1 Nephi 13:15 (Gentiles): “They

The only thing God had to say about homosexuals in the Bible was put them to death. Leviticus 20:13 ’If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable.
