Yeah true about the elipses Devi, its a form of Tourette`s but a much cleaner one than the normal one you hear of. But not quite the same thing, no-one ever got every cent they possess conned out of them by me using extra elipses... ... ...
There was no "Bible" until something like 367 AD. A bunch of now-dead white guys voted on what was OK and what was not. And even then and now there are differences in the Roman, Greek and Protestant (um... 1600s) Canons of the so-called "Bible." King James of England got the final say for the Prots. Take that Pope!
Actually the caffeine thing is really about not being addicted to stuff. Back then, coffee, tea, and alcohol were the main things to get addicted to.
Caffeine is in chocolate, Pepsi and Coke yet they are allowed to be used. Also, McDonalds double cheeseburgers are terrible for you, but they allow that too.
It seems confusing if you are trying to pin it down, but the IDEA is to just be healthy. The "Word of Wisdom", as we call it, also calls for the consumption of meat sparingly.
These things were said over 150 years ago, before Starbucks (with coffee that has 6 cans of Coca Cola worth of caffeine in it), and mass produced farms (with massive growth hormones given to cattle)
Believe it to be from God or not, you have to admit that`s rather impressive that they got this wisdom way back then.
Also, the book of Revelation was written by and of itself. The bible was not compiled until later. So when the author talked of no more should be added to the book, they meant Revelation specifically.
One more thing, to me it`s not the literalness that means anything when it comes to scripture, it`s the teachings and lessons we get from it that matter most.
So people can say whatever they want about the stories and literalness of the Bible and the Book of Mormon, it`s the IDEAS that matter. The Book of Mormon is ideas for THIS day and age, (not like the Old Testament when God was just laying waste to everyone. If you ever wondered about that BTW, it`s because back in that day, we were barbarians and wouldn`t not listen to reason.)
You simply can not avoid it. Nearly every food produced has caffeine in it. Including gum and jelly beans...etc.
I`m being lectured by someone whose knowledge of the Bible is SO GOOD that they get the name of the book wrong... It`s Revelation. So sorry if I dismiss everything you say after that as coming from an ignoramus...
The passage you are thinking of is Revelations 22:18-19. It says:
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
However, this does not mean that there can be no more prophecy. Moses himself wrote something similar in Deuteronomy 4:2
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
And when John wrote Revelations, there was no bible. The book had yet to be compiled. So, he couldn`t possibly be referring to the bible.
Next time you try bashing LDS doctrine, please get your facts straight first.
It`s not like the Bible was written once and then kept unchanged. There are equally-holy passages that were simply left out of the versions we know today.
Sheesh, I`m a christian and I thought that was freaking hilarious; and because I can laugh at myself I am free to laugh at others.
Oh, the video sucked
If you can`t laugh at this because you think you`ll rot in hell, You`re waaaaaay too uptight.
Actually, Jesus never said anything about invisible magic plates and making new rules up; He DID on the other hand specifically say there would be NO more prophecies given to man till He came again; that anyone who added to the Bible was evil; and that there were plenty of false prophets out there. So yes, he did mention the Mormons I guess. As ridiculous as my previous comment sounds, that IS the foundation of your sect, a fact studiously whitewashed over as much as possible these days.
Mormons: dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb
Wait... an ormon? I don`t get it ;P<---->
this should be a real forehead slapper for you XD its moron not ormon...
We believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ. The LDS church is about bringing forth, in scripture, plain and simple truths lost to world. It offers so much that can change lives. I know that many of you will only listen to the quick sound bite or witty quip that will finalize your decision to ever hear from us. However, I hope that some of you will.
BTW, LionHeart, if it was all about sex, wouldn`t we be the biggest church in the world? Howard Stern would be promoting it from the rooftops if it were.
this is great!
Wait... an ormon? I don`t get it ;P
I`m not a mormon, that should be obvious from the comment I made below... sorry you`re a mormon with a missing `m`.
dum dum dum dum dum
Sure, as long as you realise when a man has 10 wives he`s doing his Godly duty, spreading his oats, ensuring the survival of the race, etc, but when a woman has more than one guy she`s a youknowwhat. Hey, I didn`t write the rules...
[quote]I knew a couple of girls years ago we used to call the Margarine Sisters, cause they spread so easily...[/quote]
Basically, a guy comes home and says while he was out, an angel gave him some magic plates no-one else is allowed to see, then he hides behind a screen and translates them to his friend. The missus gets pissed off and burns the translation, so he goes and translates them again, only this translation is completely different from the first one. He then gets hauled into court where he claims to be an expert on ancient Greek and Hebrew, but when actual certified scholars question him, he doesn`t understand a word of either. After court he sees a young piece he wants so he decides its ok for him to have more than one wife, and later cuts the rest of the men in the group in on the same privilege, so despite being patently bs, it remains a popular `religion` esp for men.
Question: Is Mormon Jesus the same as Jesus who works at the Mexican Restaurant?
Mormon Time! *dances*
