Re: Baptisms for the dead

True, Ray. Baptism for the dead is the underpinning of the great LDS near-universalist view of humanity.

Re: Learning about Swedenborg

Hmm. Not sure. Did he start that, or is it like Christianity, a retrofit on his teachings? I tend to think Jesus didn't start a church either. It seems he just did the Jewish thing.

Re: Learning about Swedenborg

I like what Brian said. Swedenborg is Swedenborg, Smith is Smith, and you are you. The full experience involves riding on more than one ride. I wasn't sure whether to vote 3 or 4. I voted 4, but that doesn't mean I don't think we are all prophets of God. I just liked the idea that the revelations ar...

Re: Permanecer SUD Después De Un Cambio Grande a Tu Fe

It's possible that support for other languages needs to happen organically in other places rather than under the umbrella of existing English language communities. It's not sustainable to expect translations, I think. Es posible que apoyo para otros idomas debe llegar a pasar naturalmente en otros l...

Re: Light My Candle with Truth

Candle, I think you did great at telling your story. He told me about the "leave it on the shelf" theory, in which I found little comfort. Worst theory in the church, in my opinion. If nobody, literally nobody, in the church has a soul-satisfying answer to a question, and God hasn't given it to you ...

Re: Is the United Order the same as Socialism?

Is the United Order the same as Socialism? Well, really nothing is the same as anything else, so no, they aren't the same. But as I read the definition of socialism and bring to my mind scriptures from Doctrine and Covenants, I am leaning toward saying that the United Order is a form of Christian So...

Re: Polygamy and Brother Joseph's DNA

In the big scheme of things, I agree with Brown and Ray. To me, personally, on the average day, the matter of offspring doesn't really matter because of what Brown said. When, however, my Dad asked about it, it got me to thinking. I still may post a bunch of pertinent source quotes.

Re: An ominous developement for Middle Way Mormons

As much as I would love for us to all live nearby and hang out together, I could also see where this could reach a sort of critical mass where it really could become a problem for the local church leadership. Perhaps that is what makes the internet such a perfect medium for those that wish to "stay...
