    Look at this guys very first post. He spends it insulting Mormons (morons) and then asks why nobody takes things serious here...... I mean, I'll never take this guys serious ever again.
    Par for the course.

    The poster calling himself "the way," blaspheming Our Lord, is a Mormon - naturally.
    Oath formerly taken by Mormons promising not to reveal secret Mormon temple rituals: "Should we do so, we agree to have our breasts cut open and our hearts and vitals torn from our bodies and given to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field."

    Ok questions.. One I have been asking since I first signed on here.. How many God are there for this world? Is the Father a separate God from Jesus, Is Jesus a God at all? Is the Holy (Ghost) Spirit God, Is He God at all?

    Here are a few more..

    Have all men sinned? If it isn't our nature to sin why is it that everyone sins? How do we, or how does God deal with our sin? If it was enough for Jesus to sweat so profusely that the sweat dripped off Him as though it were great drops of blood why did he have to die at all? Or does forgiveness of sin required actual blood to be shed and thereby require His death?

    Does God have the power to create anything or is he just a good builder? Why is it that mormonism believes that the elements are eternal but God isn't? While the elements always existed as the elements, God didn't always exist as God.. Is that true? If Not why did Joseph Smith tell us that He would explain how God became God and that once He was a man just like Jesus but on a different world..

    Are we saved by God's grace through faith and not by works? If works are required to gain salvation just how many works are needed to be preformed to reach the minimum amount of works required for salvation?

    These same questions have been asked many times and yet no one has offered an answer that has any Biblical authority behind the answers.. Want to try again? I have been waiting for years I'll bet I wait even longer.. IHS jim

    He will be told to knock off the insults and stay inside the examination of the teachings of mormonism.. Still the LDS here will take exception to the non personal examination of the doctrines that are uniquely mormon. IHS jim

    I don't recall saying I welcomed his rude comment, did I? I did say I welcomed this person, (don't know if it is a man or woman), we can always use some new members here. If alan wants to report this person, he can do so. Whether this new member will post again, I don't know but the thread could have been worded more politely of course. Then again, sorry to say, I have a brother who I would definitely say is a moron and claims to be a Mormon when he's never attended church since he was 17, he's now almost 63.

    I've longed for an answer to this question. How much good works must a Mormon do to know that their salvation is in the bag? I once asked my Dad but he never had an answer for me. He always thought I was stupid especially since I was only a girl.

    I'd be a moron if I tried to answer that question. However this question will remain un-answered along with how many mormon gods are there out there in the universe?

    And I'm sure I have answered every one of them. The fact that you don't like the answer does not mean they haven't been answered for you.

    Yes, yes, yes and yes... Just like your Trinity doctrine states.
    The only difference is that we can explain how this is possible... You can not because "ignorance is bliss" for some.

    Because they choose to follow their physical nature instead of our divine nature.

    Two ways; either with Judgment or Mercy depending on us and our free agency.

    Now you are "questioning" instead of "asking a question" You are looking to see if my answer will match yours because you think you already know the answer. My answer is simply that I don't know why specifically Christ had to die at all, or that blood was necessary to be spilt, other than to say that it had to happen. Even Christ asked His Father if there was another way.

    What's the difference?

    there you go again... "Questioning" instead of "asking your question"
    However so you can not claim that you have not been answered I must inform you that all things are eternal especially God.
    It's only a matter of what form.

    See answer above.

    I don't know? I guess you'll have to ask the person who recorded his remarks, and then ask Joseph Smith. But if He was "just like Jesus" then He still would have been God.

    By "more politely of course" I guessing you mean it was Ok to call us morons, he just should have used a word like, "mentally challenged"

    if that was true, then anyone with true mental deficiencies will be automatically saved in the Celestial Kingdom wether he attended church or not.

    All works that you are capable of fulfilling and that you have knowledge of will be required of you for your salvation.

    As lazy as I am, that means about one work, and speaking of knowledge, that means about one too.

    You stated it correctly.... Faith Alone was built on man's knowledge because mankind is lazy.

    Really.. So just what can a man do gto bring about his own salvatkon in gthe highest heaven of God? What is it that you think will make you worthy? There are beautiful church houses all over the USA that took a lot of work to build? Doing so just to have a place for the Church to gather doesn't sound to lazy to me.. There are Church supported mission across the world. They teach the truth as it is found in the Bible. they offer medical care, they educate and feed the locals. No one is excluded because they are poor or orphaned. Again I ask where in the laziness.. The people the Church sends into the world to be Her hands receive their daily bread and little else, and yet they struggle to gain acceptance into a ministry to do the work.. Lazy? Are you sure you know what the word means?

    Christians then aren't lazy they know what they can do and what must be left to the grace of God through faith in Jesus.. The question here is why don't you and your church leaders know these things? IHS jim

    I want answers. NE asked only how many good works/ ordinances as a minimum one must do to receive salvation. You are afraid of me and most likely have me blocked.. You will never see the question Christian have been asking the LDS here to answer from day one.. IHS jim
