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 to... Continue Reading →
I received another question and thought that I would share my response from someone I will call Sam. Sam said, "There is absolutely no biblical evidence for what you suggest by stating that a deceased person has any ability to accept your postmortem “proxy baptism”. It’s not easy to accept that they (loved ones) are... Continue Reading →
Jim continues our conversation from my previous posts. He says, "Do you believe that Jesus is God? That it is only through him that we are saved? That there is nothing that we can do on earth, no "good deed," that will make us deserve or achieve eternal life?"Yes, Jim. I believe that. I am... Continue Reading →

I remember that we'd see a lot of neighbors there and other kids from school. It was a big event and there were a lot of kids. I had a basket in hand and I wanted some eggs!
I have been pondering similar questions for some time. Why is Satan attacking Joseph Smith? Why is Satan attacking the leaders of the Church? Why is Satan attacking the Book of Mormon? It seems to be getting worse.
Today was a special event for our family. In the LDS faith, (Mormon), we do not baptize children until they are 8 years old. We want them to make the decision and feel this is when they really start to know right from wrong. My daughter Camille recently turned 8 and was very excited to... Continue Reading →
While reading 1 Corinthians chapter 13, I was pondering how this scripture seemed to directly apply to those who have doubts about Joseph Smith, the prophets & apostles, the Church, the Book of Mormon, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Charity is not just about giving to the poor, it is also defined as: lenient... Continue Reading →
