Home temple? Come on, where is the sacrifice in that, where is the depth of commitment? You can do better than that.
Anyway, I hope it makes you feel better at least. I guess since you believe your ceremony will do me so much good you won’t need to come around here and spend so much time trying to talk me out of my faith. Perhaps you could spread this practice to other anit-Mormon posters. I think FR will be a much better place without so much contention.
As for ‘how offensive the mormonism practice of baptizing people of other faiths is’. It is 100% your choice to feel offended. All we do is offer people a choice they never had in their life, and we offer them that choice out of love. I will not apologize for doing that. If you want to get all bent out of shape over it, that is YOUR problem.
A re-write of history is a creation of fiction. Like attributing a newly written book to Mark Twain. Like baptising a dead person.
Maybe my five or six thousand LDS cousins lied to me. Me; I am a Calvinist, though of a Free Will type, I think that people who take retro Baptism seriously have a problem.
It’s an honest question. Inquiring minds want to know!
I'm sure you can get the whole thread pulled just because it doesn't suit the mormon agenda, resty.
Oh, I’d rather get the thread pulled like you guys do than have a discussion.
Why did the thread on Jos. Smith’s sermon get pulled?
Very strange! Why would mormons be upset about one of his sermons?
They obviously have the power to shut down the discussion when it isn’t going their way.
Like little kids. waaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Wonder if they found some obscure telecommunications law?
Mom, HE’S LOOKING AT ME!!!!!
I’M GONNA TELLL....MOM DID YOU SEE? MAKE HIM QUIT! (hit abuse)
“Home temple? Come on, where is the sacrifice in that, where is the depth of commitment?”
Are you kidding! Just the whitewash and electric bill alone
are killers. Add in the golden angel and legal bills to
fight with neighbors and we’re talkin’ real money!
“I guess since you believe your ceremony will do me so much good you wont need to come around here and spend so much time trying to talk me out of my faith.”
Don’t think I’ve ever once tried to talk you out of your faith.
Only God can open a person’s eyes to the truth of salvation.
But, perhaps I can answer best with your own words!
“It is 100% your choice to feel offended. All we do is offer people a choice they never had in their life, and we offer them that choice out of love. I will not apologize for doing that. If you want to get all bent out of shape over it, that is YOUR problem.”
And now you know why I post here - particularly to those
caught up in the cult of mormonism - and of course, to warn
those away who may be tempted to think mormonism is truth.
It is not.
LOL! It’s a tough question for most denominations to answer. I’m not surprised there are no takers.
Don, you will have to try that tactic on someone who hasn’t dealt with you mormons on here for months. I’m not playing defense. This thread is about the Vatican and the mormons...I am neither Catholic nor mormon.
Yes I know what a re-write of history means. Your claim of revisionist history didn’t fit the quoted portion, because it is fact that baptism for the dead is common practice for the LDS church.
Spoken by a true intellectual and diplomat.
Your ignorance is embarassing. Genealogy is used for a number of purposes beyond the traditional practice of searching family lines as a hobby or for religious purposes. In fact, the Mormons’ Family History Library has openned, and contnue to do so, its collection to the University of Utah and other institutions for genetic research to fight cancer and other inherited diseases. Firthermore, the Family History Library has worked not only with genetic and medical researchers, but also with social, demographic, historical and other scholars using the collection to help better understand human beings.
Are YOU now infected with the same thing that has taken over OMM??
