Re: Interesting article on the dangers of intellectualism

Edit: 3) Sometimes I feel like I'm painting myself into a corner spiritually. If the intellectual discounts dreams, promptings, feelings, peep stones, visions, etc. what does god have left to communicate with the intellectual? Is this what it means by "my spirit will no longer strive?" If intellect...

Re: Interesting article on the dangers of intellectualism

And of course, we all know what happens on Star Trek when someone out-evolves the rest. Pretty soon they're all power-mad and crazy, controlling the ship or playing weird games on their inferiors.

Re: Interesting article on the dangers of intellectualism

The one anti-intellectual thought I sometimes have is that intellectuals are some of the best & brightest among us. If the gospel is for everyone, then there is no real benefit to being intellectual; in fact, it's as much a curse as a blessing. It's always tough to be the smartest person in the roo...

Re: Race and the Priestood in HPG

Well I hope this helps. "The things of God cannot be understood by the spirit of men. It is impossible to always measure and weigh all spiritual things by man’s yardstick of scales. Admittedly, our direct and positive information is limited. I have wished the Lord had given us a little more clarity ...
