    It might be similar to this concise and precise definition:
    Where can we find an 'OFFICIAL MORMON' teaching website??
    Official sites are sites supported by LDS officials unless said official sites are considered unofficial by said officials.
    At that point such sites are unofficial unless officially referenced for official purposes by officials who can do so officially.
    This should not be misconstrued as an indication that official sites can be unofficially recognized as official nor should it be implied that unofficial sites cannot contain official information, but are not officially allowed to be offical despite their official contents due the their unofficialness.
    Official sites will be official and recognized as official by officials of the LDS unless there is an official reason to mark them as unofficial either temporally or permanently, which would make the official content officially unofficial.
    This is also not to imply that recognized sites, often used on FR by haters and bigots cannot contain official information, it just means that content, despite its official status, is no longer official and should be consider unofficial despite the same information being official on an official site elsewhere.
    Even then the officialness my be amended due to the use of the unofficial information which may determine the officialness of anything be it official or unofficial depending on how and where it is used officially or unofficially.
    I hope this clear things up for the lurkers out there.
    The haters tend to make things complicated and confusing when it is all really quite crystal clear.

    ... but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

    And there is NOTHING in this to indicate that any NEEDED lessons were given especially to the disciples; either.

    “Before twenty two weeks, a fetus is not in any way equal to ‘a baby’ or ‘a child.’ It cannot survive outside the uterus because it cannot breathe – not even on a respirator. It cannot form anything like thoughts.”

    The same could be said of bald eagles.

    But; unlike unborn humans, unborn eagles have the FULL protection of the United States Government.


    I'd like to thank the United States Government for protecting me and my kind.
    You see, 40 years ago, my odds of making it out of the egg, alive, were very poor; about 80% of us died. 
    But a lady discovered our plight and wrote a book that addressed our problem,
    and, in 1972, a law was ammended protecting us even further. (
    What I find strange is that the same government passed a law the very next year that allowed for killing
    of unborn, and apparently unwanted, humans.  Little ones still nestled safely in their Mother's womb.
    Around 25% of them are dying before birth - on average nearly 3,300 - every day of the year.
    I hear that by now, somewhere around 58 MILLION of them have perished.
    Wouldn't that kind of mess up the humans plans for growth, and welfare, and
    Strange birds; these Homo Sapiens.  Perhaps they'll come to their senses
    before they are ALL dead!

    Holy Tradition is of utmost importance, for these people knew Christ and the Apostles!

    Are you bold enough to state that a person CANNOT get saved without it?

     A very widespread number of people (not only Christians) interpret this that these giants were the result of fallen angels and human women.
    Let's look at the text....

    Genesis 6:1-8

    When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

    The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

    The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them. But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

    It does NOT say the GIANTs  mated with the Humans; it merely says they were on the earth.


    So; just WHO are the sons of God and the daughters of humans???


    The BOOK says: Let Us create Man in Our image.   So there you get some 'sons of God'; right??

    The BOOK also says, in Genesis 5:3-4

     When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth. After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters.


    These things happened BEFORE Genesis chapter 6....

    Neither of which are okay with the Lord, so it’s not worship, it’s just vain repetition set to trance music.

    Psalm 136 NIV

    Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
    His love endures forever.
    Give thanks to the God of gods.
    His love endures forever.
    Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
    His love endures forever.

    to him who alone does great wonders,
    His love endures forever.
    who by his understanding made the heavens,
    His love endures forever.
    who spread out the earth upon the waters,
    His love endures forever.
    who made the great lights
    His love endures forever.
    the sun to govern the day,
    His love endures forever.
    the moon and stars to govern the night;
    His love endures forever.

    10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt
    His love endures forever.
    11 and brought Israel out from among them
    His love endures forever.
    12 with a mighty hand and outstretched arm;
    His love endures forever.

    13 to him who divided the Red Sea[a] asunder
    His love endures forever.
    14 and brought Israel through the midst of it,
    His love endures forever.
    15 but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea;
    His love endures forever.

    16 to him who led his people through the wilderness;
    His love endures forever.

    17 to him who struck down great kings,
    His love endures forever.
    18 and killed mighty kings
    His love endures forever.
    19 Sihon king of the Amorites
    His love endures forever.
    20 and Og king of Bashan
    His love endures forever.
    21 and gave their land as an inheritance,
    His love endures forever.
    22 an inheritance to his servant Israel.
    His love endures forever.

    23 He remembered us in our low estate
    His love endures forever.
    24 and freed us from our enemies.
    His love endures forever.
    25 He gives food to every creature.
    His love endures forever.

    26 Give thanks to the God of heaven.
    His love endures forever.

    This NAR is an apostate movement, who use the same arguments Mormons do by adding to the Word of God.

    We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.

    If you’re involved in this church in any way, always test what he preaches and teaches against scripture.

    This NAR cult is a theological problem and people get caught up in it by virtue of cute sayings like “Everything isn’t written down in the Bible!”
