Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus 1991

I know this is a little late, and it's getting closer to the new year, but I just wanted to mention that on Christmas day I saw a highly underrated Christmas movie made for TV called Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus. It starred Charles Bronson, who is normally known for playing tough-guy roles ...

Re: My Revised Understanding of The Second Comforter

Well, when a person knows another person, I mean really knows that person, he/she doesn't just know about he/she. They really know that person on a personal level, just like when a person really knows their close family members of best friends. Does that mean that he/she automatically knows everythi...

Re: My Revised Understanding of The Second Comforter

Since you mentioned visions, Curt, I think that's how people are describing their experiences with the Second Comforter. They describe it like a vision. Anyway, all of you have a merry Christmas.

Re: My Revised Understanding of The Second Comforter

Okay, I get what you're saying now. I appreciate that. Maybe studying the experiences about the people claiming to have experienced the Second Comforter has made me a bit biased, which I believe many of those people that have experienced have become. But then again, as Roy pointed, everyone has thei...

Re: My Revised Understanding of The Second Comforter

Curt, I agree with you. I'm not trying to refer people to that. I agree it's not always not always been the standard in Mormon history. I don't understand what you mean by it not being the standard in the scriptures. I can think of a handful of prophets or people in the scriptures that have had this...

Re: My Revised Understanding of The Second Comforter

Thank you, very much, Roy, for your comment. I always enjoy your and Curt's comments. You two say a lot of things in ways I've never thought of before. Bruce R. McConkie did make a lot comments in his book that made it seem like it represented Mormon doctrine when they really different. For example,...

My Revised Understanding of The Second Comforter

I know last I posted a topic called Modern-day Experiences With The Second Comforter. I didn't realize this before, but over time I found out I became a bit obsessed with obtaining this spiritual gift. I began a curiosity in the Second Comforter, visions or visitations of Jesus Christ, when I began ...

Re: Somewhat Reduced Participation

Curt Sunshine, I'm grateful you'll still be with us, even if it will less than you used to be. Thank you so very much for your advice when I thought couldn't get through my faith crisis in one piece. I definitely don't have everything figured out yet, but I feel much more at peace with myself and my...

Re: Seminary Manual vs. non-LDS Scripture Commentary

I think that's great that you use non-LDS commentary for the scriptures in seminary other than the LDS seminary manuals. After I had my faith transition, I hardly ever read, listen, or watch talks or listen to the opinions of the General Authorities, unless it's Uctdorf or a few others I might like....
