Re: I don't believe this world is ripe for destruction yet.

I held back and gave you time to prove your end times scenarios that I was assured would happen before inauguration day. I stand by my original statement. The world is rapidly ripening for destruction but is not yet ripe. There is still wheat to be gathered into fathers barn. Stop standing around o...

Re: US Supreme Court could discuss 'Sister Wives' case

I have noticed that both men and women who divorce usually wind up marrying someone just like the one they left. Whatever energy of attraction we put off does not change throughout life. So polygamy would probably result in a man having three or four women like the first one he married. I have noti...

Re: What are our Divine Gender Roles and How can Men and Women Respect Each Other?

The problem in marriage is that there are different ways to show love, and one spouse will expect that since he or she is giving one type of gift, that he or she should receive a different type of gift in return. It shouldn't work that way. Work gifts for work gifts, monetary gifts for monetary gif...

I have no scriptural basis for this, but I believe that if the church had won the Reynolds v. United States case we would still have some level of polygamy within this church. I doubt the Supreme Court will hear the case because Brown hasn't been charged with a crime, but it would be interesting to ...

One thing that I would like to add on the subject of how men and women can respect each other is: always look up at your spouse.
