Enter, the magic keyboard cover!
That`s because some people have better things to do than sit on their bum all day and look at stupid articles.:)
That about sums it all up.
You`ve got faith healers making millions of dollars a year on TV, who are proven frauds. You`ve got super churches lead by people that have been caught in homosexual situations with illicit drugs, while leading the church. You`ve got a slew of priests convicted of molesting their own altar boys! And you pick on the mormons?!
All right, I`m through. I won`t blow on the coals any longer!
Third, it is true that Joseph Smith was a mason. Although he only (according to what we have recorded) attended three lodge meetings, he was given the rank of Master in the masonic order. And it is also true that some temple imagery does reflect Masonic ideas. Joseph Smith claimed to have restored original temple worship...the masons claim some of their ceremonies are a continuation of ancient temple worship. If this is true, it shouldn`t be odd if there are some similarities.
Even so, I find it really weird.
There are many other faiths that wear symbolic sacred clothing and/or wear other symbols of their religion.
Muslim, Sikh, Jewish, Buddhist, some Christian groups such as the Amish, Catholics it goes on and on.
Sacred things are not to be spoken of in a frivolous manner. It`s that simple.
Like it says in the Bible, "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you."--Matt. 7:6
anyway, yeah, they do wear "special underwear" but they don`t think they make you fly or something. as peanut x said, they`re there for modesty. supposedly if you are wearing these longer undergarments, you will be less tempted to wear a shirt that comes up past their belly button or shorts that show half their ass cheek.yes, i used to be mormon for about 5 or 6 years, odds are if you didn`t then i know more than you so there. special underwear revealed.and whatever that guy said about `secret rituals` people need to stop saying stuff about that. i`ve been into the temple, and no they do NOT chop of cows heads and drink their blood. they just want `holy` people to be in the temple, so they don`t let most regular a-holes take the grand tour.
From what I understand it was common practice to wash a guests or a hosts feet (i`m not sure what one it was)
All that verse is trying to show is that Jesus was humble.
OK then, how about this?
Q. What`s the difference between Mormonism and Christianity?
A. About 2000 years.
anyways, I WAS going to comment on here about how clever the editing was to make it seem like something that wasn`t true was true....but then a little further in I realised that this was true.
I don`t think these undergarments are any different to things that other religions wear for symbolism. Like the 5 k`s for Sikhs . (Is it 5? I`m not so sure now)
Although I do rail against the abuse of religion... Larson is one of those pentecostal priests who specialize in "exorcisms" of his congregants.
I have underwear that makes me do that. :)
Children do not wear them. They are given to an adult after he/she has made certain commitments to our Heavenly Father. Those commitments are things such as chastity, reverence, and respect of each and every person`s beliefs. They are not secret commitments, but sacred. Much like a personal prayer, it is private between you and God. Generally, we wear them much as any other person would any undergarment. We don`t swim in them or take them into the shower. We try to respect what them mean, but we don`t believe they are a magical cloak or something. They are not washed every night, unless you only have one pair. (and that is just gross.) We have several sets, again much like any underwear that a person might wear. We put on a clean set every morning. If it`s lost, it`s lost. They are sacred, so we try to take care of them, but if they get lost, we buy a new pair.
I was born into mormonism...I don`t go anymore because I`m a little sketchy on a lot of things they preach...it`s not bad stuff....it`s just stuff that I don`t believe. I feel like I have to defend it a lot because it`s just not what it`s made out to be in the mainstream. It`s for sure a Christian religion...no matter what people might tell you.
tewstudly, when do children/adults first get the underwear? When is it necessary or considered important to wear it? Do you wash it every night, and what happens if it`s lost?
And people wonder why I call the religious crazy!
I have magic underwear. If a hot girl walks by, it temporarily stretches.
Have you guys ever been accused of worshiping a white salamander?...I dated a girl that insisted that I did...I assured her that I had no idea what she was talking about...still...I have no idea what she was talking about...lol....anyways...goes to show you the crazy things folks will make up.
glad you`re here :)
