First Vision

I also want to highlight a 6 episode podcast put out by the Joseph Smith Papers Project. I think they do some amazing work and tell some amazing stories about the First Vision. https://www.josephsmithpapers.org/articles/the-first-vision-a-joseph-smith-papers-podcast I also found this video on YouTub...

Saints Vol 2 podcast

I want to say how impressed I am with the Saints Volume 2 podcast. In the latest episode (16) they talk about the myths of the handcart disaster that aren't really true. For example, there is a woman that carried people through the icy water. It is likely that more than 6 young men carried people, a...

Re: Was Jesus Married?

I know the Fundamentalists claim that Jesus was Married, but in my opinion, it is poorly sourced and there are a lot of leaps of logic to get there. I spoke with Anne Wilde who was a plural wife of Ogden Kraut who wrote "Jesus Was Married." I spoke to her and an apostle for a polygamist group (Chris...

Re: Arrington's 9 Points

This is on my (long) list of books to read. It sounds very interesting!

Sick Cattle, Strong drinks for washing your bodies

I had a really cool interview with apostle Lachlan MacKay of the Community of Christ, and wanted to share a few of the amazing things he said concerning the Word of Wisdom. D&C 89:7 reads, “And, again, strong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies.” Who washes their bodies?...

Re: Struggle with those against the Church on social media

I have the same problem. I purposely avoid reading comment sections in newspapers because it is such a hate-fest. I think avoidance is the best you can do. There was an interesting post at W&T on this phenomenon: https://wheatandtares.org/2018/01/19/ho ... m-a-holes/

Re: The Rescue is Back on The Menu!

I remember when my kids would be told to apologize to a sibling. They would give this flippant, "sorry." No sincerity or ownership. I understand what you are saying and agree to a large part. On the other hand, our current POTUS never learned that skill. In other words, even if "sorry" is not since...

Re: Joseph Smith wasn't actually a Polygamist...

I know Rock, but he relies on the RLDS for his sources that Joseph wasn't a polygamist. While I know it is appealing, Rock's just plain wrong on this topic. There's simply too much evidence. Here's my interview where Brian Hales refutes Rock's points.

Re: Radiowest interview with Episcopal Bishop Spong re. his book

Yes, we talked about that in our interview. Jerald really took Ed Decker to town after the screening. They were a bit perplexed!

Re: Dieter Update

I can see how Uchtdorf is "uniquely qualified" to lead Europe since he is a European. I wonder about one thing though. For those who think Uchtdorf was "too progressive," if Nelson had a concern about that, would he put Uchtdorf in charge of Correlation? I've heard rumors that the Brethren were upse...
