Are you asking in a Gospel/spiritual sense or in a legal/law-of-the-land sense?
Sorry about that, in a legal sense.

Your Body, or Not--Sex vs. Substance vs. ?

Why is it ok for a person to do as they please with their body in some circumstances, but not in others?

Homosexuality, abortion, marijuana?

Re: Creation/Evolution

How would the world being created in a different sphere, and being of a higher glory, then falling and coming to this solar system, and having a different atmosphere before the Flood, affect its creation and "existence data" we have now?

Re: Creation/Evolution

If it took Jesus 4 billion years to create this world, and he has made numberless creations, would that put him as a spirit for trillions and trillions of years? And someone was watching for over 4 billion years, to make sure everything obeyed?

Re: Creation/Evolution

False the scriptures teach the first 6 creative periods were spiritual creation. Interesting point - spiritual creation precedes material/physical creation. Makes sense.

Re: Was the SUN affected, by the Fall of Man?

According to Mormon belief, the earth was not created "here", but somewhere else. After the Fall, it fell to here. Did anything else fall? Of course, MSS will tell you a planet moving from one solar system to another is impossible. Would earth's creation be different, in a different environment? Wha...

Re: How Alexander Hamilton Screwed Up America

Now THIS is the type of "founding fathers" revisionism that is needed!

Isn't it interesting that the people who hate revisionism finding out and publicizing the truth, hate the true heroes for small reasons (Jefferson Washington, Robert E. Lee, etc.), and love the wicked (Hamilton, Lincoln, etc.)?

Re: Artificial Intelligence and World War III

Another thought. Both Daniel and Revelation give information concerning the beast that make it seem like it will resemble a man to some extent. It will have eyes like a man, a mouth to speak, a heart like a man, it will stand on feet like a man, and make judgments. We know the beast is created by S...

I think it would be much better to give the poor tax exemption, or raise the bracket level. Much simpler, IMO.
