the first thing that struck me as wierd was there was no mention of being the mormon church in front of the church.
the next thing that really struck me as being wierd was i looked around and found the people seemed to be normal. then as i got to know the people a bit more, they still seemed to be pretty much normal.
another thing i found wierd with the young adults was that they were intelligent, creative, strong in their beliefs(yet not wierd–generally speaking of course) and they seemed to know how to have fun without assistance from alcohol, tobacco and drugs.
the one thing about the doctrine that struck me a little wierd was the belief in modern prophets. the person who invited me dispelled that quickly by asking me a couple of easy questions.
did i believe in the prophets of the bible?
why would the people of ancient times need prophets more than us?]]>
Or how many Bishop’s have a LAST name of Rick?]]>
And I wonder just how many bishops have a first name of Rick?]]>
The last few weeks I’ve been going to my favorite bible commentator’s class on the book of Romans. I’m pretty sure there’s more confusion between members and nonmembers regarding the terms “grace” and “saved” (or “salvation’) then anything else.]]>
That concept works really well as my wife and I have battled over which version of “Little old house in the middle of the woods” to sing to our kids, the version I grew up with or the version she grew up with (her version is wrong, by the way), but in one fail swoop you have blown the concept of normal-form compeltely out of the water. Thanks a lot. I’ll be returning me degree now :)]]>
I’d love to hear a sermon preached from the Book of Mormon, delivered Southern Baptist style. :-)]]>
