Response to the blue-haired, nose-piercings, Agnostic.
(My response to someone self-described as “blue hair, asymmetrical nose piercings, gay, and identifies as Agnostic”) I like your writing style. I hope that you really don’t think that all “Mormons” are bad. Just like any group of people, you’ll get all kinds. I think that even though I’m a faithful church-going, (well, at leastContinue reading “Response to the blue-haired, nose-piercings, Agnostic.”
Sam responded to my last blog and claimed that I was brainwashed for being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While he did become a little more confrontational, I wanted to respond because he said that I was avoiding engaging in meaningful conversation. Hello Sam, I do not like toContinue reading “Brainwashed”

Do not add to his words – The Book of Mormon
Jim writes, “Proverbs 30:6 says, ‘Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar’ (NIV). The Book of Mormon was established years after this was already written and established as truth in the Bible. God would not have had this written if he was later going to addContinue reading “Do not add to his words – The Book of Mormon”
Contradictions in the Bible and Book of Mormon
My conversation has continued with my friend who I will call Jim. Jim asked, “How do you reconcile the contradictions of the Book of Mormon to the Bible? There should be no disparity in the Word of God. One Word, one God.” Jim, There are also many contradictions within the Bible itself. Here are someContinue reading “Contradictions in the Bible and Book of Mormon”
