Re: Revelation 13:7

The Prophet Joseph Smith taught "When God made use of the figure of the beast in visions to the prophets He did it to represent those kingdoms which had degenerated and become corrupt, savage and beast-like in their dispositions, even the degenerate kingdoms of the wicked world."

Re: What are some ideas that could bring the left and right together?

I have noted cases in which people on government assistance secretly work on the side, not reporting their moonlighting income to the government as required by law.

I think only a thorough understanding of the Gospel by all people could bring people on both sides together.

Re: Revelation 13:7

I note that to most people, LDS and non-LDS, repentance means "a renunciation of sin to which we are naturally inclined." , as stated in the LDS bible Dictionary, Pg. 760. Just before that one reads "...repentance comes to mean a turning of the heart and will to God,...", which to my mind means tryi...

Re: Revelation 13:7

In the Bible Dictionary in the back of the Bible used by the LDS Church, Pg. 760 one reads that "...repentance comes to mean a turning of the heart and will to God." To me that means that repentance includes striving to know and abide by all the commandments that God has given us.

I had never considered that Revelation 13:7 might be playing out right now. The more I think about it, the more I think Robin Hood is right. Not only are individuals being overcome by Satan, but nations as well.
