Clothing Our Nakedness (1)

While pondering and studying the idea of nakedness as a symbol, and covering ourselves with the atonement of Christ (e.g., Adam and Eve receiving a covering through the sacrifice of an animal), I came across a set of scriptures that include a principle that I have never heard taught that challenges my entire thinking regarding > > Read More …

Upon The Mountain — Reflections (Part 4.0 of 4)

After nearly a month of contemplation, there are a number of things that come to mind that I feel a need to clarify and to explore. Whereas I can’t see doing all that in one post, this is the first of several. The others will follow as Part 4.1 of 4, etc. 1. All of > > Read More …

Upon the Mountain — Introduction Addenda (Part 1 of 4)

Awaking this morning, it was made clear that there were some things of import missing from the prior post. On July 24th and 25th, we received some singular revelations. This was in consequence of offering the prayer on July 23 to ask for a little more time, for which the parallels to the servant pleading > > Read More …

Upon the Mountain — Introduction (Part 1 of 4)

If you have been following this blog, you know that Joy and I have been praying regularly to be shown our false beliefs (unbeliefs) and false traditions. We have been less diligent than we should have been in studying and preparing ourselves. It appears that the Lord is done waiting for us. Over the last > > Read More …

To Be Worthy

I received an indirect “question” regarding my definition of worthiness in my last post (Musings on the Sacrament).┬áThis is fair as I did not elaborate on this topic to any great degree.

Musings on the Sacrament

Preface Seven weeks ago, Joy and I began writing the following “document.” It was subsequently forwarded to a significant number of associates for review and comment. With one notable exception (thank you LL), we received virtually no feedback. It may be that people are simply too busy. Perhaps it is too long. It may be > > Read More …

Exit Plan B

Might we correctly say that Heavenly Father does not want us to have to repent? What if we thought of this as Plan of Happiness, Plan A? Have faith in Christ (always remember Him; always keep His commandments) Receive the constant companionship of the Spirit In short, Plan A. Obedience. What if we thought of > > Read More …

Heavenly Father Likes Potato Salad

I believe The One Hypothesis to be correct. Generally, I try to include a reasonable degree of personal sacred experiences, erring on the side of slightly too much rather than too little, but certainly not everything. For a moment here, I turn off that filter. Filter off My morning prayer was singular. A few minutes > > Read More …

Oh God…. (3)

Follow-on to Oh God and Oh God (2) No ontology is perfect, some are useful. This still fluid (open for improvement). Clearly needs comment/feedback/critique…. Stepping back very briefly to say the obvious, we Mormons have been taught to pray this way: Address Heavenly Father Thank Him for our blessings Ask Him for the things we > > Read More …
