    Exactly, and the implication therein is that the once proclaimed UNCHANGING moral command/nature of most of their bibles...

    changes...

    therefore, dot dot dot...it was bullshit. It changes with the times...because that's what humans do. Their God's morality has been left at the door of dissonance.


    This kid packs a lot of good info into one short video...

    I just don't think its limited to religion. I think a lot of organized groups have group think that can make sense or makes no sense. The Mormons believe God still talks to us and they have a living Prophet. Because of that rules will change if lessons have been learned. But yeah I agree with you about the absolutism.

    Im not even implying its limited to religion, lol

    Im saying it applies to ALL HUMANS, and Religions have proven to not have some omniscient, unchanging moral code but have instead been....as if by magic....

    EXACTLY like the rest of humanity. (changes with the times)

    I live in Utah and they announced this on the local news that we are to no longer use the slang LDS. It seems so trivial to me.

    The original text by Joseph Smith was "pure and delight some people.'
    Brigham Young made the unauthorized change in 1845
    You may argue that was convenient, but original Books of Mormon have been sold for years.

    Just another hate-filled anti-LDS thread. So sad.

    Why wouldn’t God command us different rules for different situations? He commanded Noah to build the ark because he knew the flood was coming. Does anyone really think we need to build one too or are God’s commands for us going to address our situations?

    Abraham was commanded to leave his home land and go to Israel. Are we? Unlikely. He was commanded to offer up His Son Isaac. We have been commanded not to kill or anything like it.

    God is the ruler of the Universe. He can command and revoke as He pleases. So what should we do? Seek Him and His righteousness? Or do we trust people who don’t know Him and cast judgements on Him?

    Choose this day who you will serve. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord
