Understanding the House of Israel

June 25, 2013 // 0 Comments

How well do you understand the House of Israel? I thought I knew it fairly well. But as I found this and went through it, I realized that I knew parts of the stories, but I never really knew how well it all connected together. My Mom sent me this link. A woman who goes by “The Red Headed ... [More]

Finding Christ in the Book of Mormon

June 21, 2013 // 1 Comment

During my first year as a Missionary, our Mission President gave us a challenge to “Find Christ in the Book of Mormon.” Sad to say it, but I didn’t do it. I looked at the challenge and flat out said, “No. I don’t want to do it.” Why? I don’t know. I guess ... [More]

Purple Cows – Part 2

Authority of God This excerpt comes from my other post, “How to Bible Bash”, but I feel like it’s directly applicable: When I hear the word “Authority,” what first comes to my mind is “permission.” Imagine that you’re a police officer, and I’m not. I go to the store, purchase all ... [More]

Imagine that you’re driving down the road of a 2-lane highway. On your left side is a pasture, full of cows. No big deal, right? You pass by them without even giving a second thought.

FAQ: Mormon Temples

May 29, 2013 // 0 Comments

A common symbol of the Mormon Church is our large and beautiful temples. With more than 160 temples (as of this date) either built or in planning across the world, it allows those not of our religion to have quite a bit of curiosity. My intent in writing this is to hopefully answer some of the ... [More]

Do we truly have free will?

May 15, 2013 // 0 Comments

The other day, someone asked me, “If God knows everything already, how can we truly have free will? He already knows the choices that we’re going to make ahead of time, so is it really our choice?” Great question. This is simply my opinion. I don’t know if there is any scriptural basis to ...

Growing up, I’m not sure if your Mom did or not, but mine would constantly be telling me to clean my room. “I don’t know how you find anything in there. Your room is a mess!”, she would say. But the thing is, that it was MY mess. And because of that, I knew exactly where everything was, ... [More]

Cell Phones and Spiritual Signals

The laundry room of my three-story apartment complex is in the basement. Some have nicknamed it, “The bat cave.” It’s a harsh name, but it is certainly suiting of the dreary dungeon. The room is almost completely covered in pure concrete. The floor, walls, and even most of the ceiling. It is ... [More]

13 Tips to Quit Masturbating

“It’s a normal thing to do,” “It helps to relieve stress,” “There’s nothing wrong with it.” The world tries to tell us that there’s nothing wrong with masturbating. However, the last time I checked, the Lord didn’t care about what the world thinks. The Lord has placed other ... [More]

General Conference Round-Up – April 2013

April 8, 2013 // 0 Comments

Wow! Yet another Conference has passed us by. Can’t believe it. As the Conference started, the letters showed up on the television and said, “The 182nd Annual General Conference.” I thought to myself, “Really? I thought last year it was the 174th.” I guess time sure flies, doesn’t it? ... [More]
