PROMISING MATTERS


  • THE ABOVE IS HOW TO FOLLOW THE DEVIL WITHOUT EVEN TRYING

  • Sometimes I wonder how much better off the world would be if everyone purposed in their hearts and minds to compliment ten people a day.
  • THE LORD'S ON GUARD
    "The eyes of the Lord keep guard over knowledge and him who has it..." Pr.22:12 Oh that Wisdom be confirmed by the knowledge we discover and grasp. God expects discretion be used in the knowledge we have so that He be glorified. God will guard our hearts and minds "but He overthrows the words of the treacherous." With believers, knowledge comes with responsibility. All we do with what we know is accountable to God. Likewise the words of our mouth reveal the integrity of our hearts. May we speak and act with integrity with that which we know that the Lord be glorified. selahV

No Deceit. I heard on Christian Radio this week that the attrition rate of mormon converts is 80% after 2 years. Interesting tidbit.

Christ can work in this, I know I did the same for some J.W. several years ago and had one mve closer to truth, so close he was disfellowshiped for associating with me.

Of course you're not being deceitful. You never said that you were going to be persuaded by them; you told them you would read their book and be glad to talk to them, after you'd read the book of Mormon, as long as your husband was around. All perfectly true.

From what I understand, by the way, very little of Mormon theology actually comes out of the book of Mormon. Just as Soviet policy was more about Lenin than Marx, Mormon practice is more about Brigham Young than Joseph Smith.

I think it's great that you're inviting them in to share the Good News with them. Bravo!

Hi selahV,

You would go and ask a question like this so I could say you are being decietful and coniving to get their book ! But on the other hand you were right to be able to read what they believe in so you hopefully help them understand that God didn't send them and only them words for their personal benefit ! The words were sent for everybody and were inspired by God and that is scripture they should abide by !

There was three that came to my door about 2 months ago and I tried to be nice untill one said Brother I shore would like to spend eternity with you ? Thats when their heavy artillery came out ! I asked them was heaven going to be divided so we could stand on opposite side of the street and throw rocks at each other and let God be the meadiator! They wouldn't let me get a word in edge ways so I told them I would pray for them and that was end of coversation and please show themselves out ! They were acting like children when you tell them they cain't have another piece of candy ! If they do come back I think and hope you will be prepared ?

Blessings.
Ron.

PERSONAL OPINION

  • IN MY HUMBLE OPINION
    An opinion is something we own as ours. What we feel necessary to state publicly could become another's opinion as well. It would be good to consider how much truth is at the core of one's opinion before voicing it. Are we willing to take the time to dig to that depth before we adopt another's opinion as our own? selahV
