In the late 18th century, a whole ton of women directly disobeyed the church by staying in polygamy.

Oh?

Just what YEARS between 1700 and 1799 are being referenced?

“Maybe they could just not worry about it. Herein lies the problem. You view women as victims. I don’t.”

I do not view these women as victims. I view them as victimized by the heresy of mormonism, which puts into motion all the judgement and condemnation these women must emotionally deal with.

“A woman can easily say “If you want the bathroom cleaned, clean it”. The Mormon church won’t kick her out. Shoot, they seem to do anything to keep people.”

No, they won’t kick her out. She’s welcome to stay as an example of a woman who isn’t “godly”, who can’t “walk the walk”.

“These women set the bar for themselves.”

I don’t think you are right on this one AP.

“The church can ask them to dress up in prairie dresses everyday but they don’t have to do it. In the late 18th century, a whole ton of women directly disobeyed the church by staying in polygamy. They didn’t have a problem opposing the church.”

Well, I suppose they could have left their polygamous families, their husband and had their children be fatherless...

“The reason the women did everything is because they were too lazy to ask someone else to do it.”

There you go with the condemnation and judgement again.

“I vacuumed the house yesterday and you don’t hear me bitching about my oppression. Freeper, please.”

Let me check to see if there are Medals of Merit for Mormonic God-Like Men that I can award you Appy! I’ll get back to you when I find one...

Well; the jury has been looking for some in this thread; but all they have seen is scripture spouting and they KNOW that Satan can do that...


You can think God that he is the only Jury, right? you are not alone.

"Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned;

and I will go still further and say, take this revelation, or any other revelation that the Lord has given,

and deny it in your feelings, and I promise that you will be damned.

Brigham Young - JoD 3:266 (July 14, 1855)


MORMONs: get ready for the HEAT!!

You are just useful as a tool to once again tell SLC Mormons that they are HELLBOUND for not following what their 'god' continually tells them to do in their precious scripture: D&C 132:58-66

My decision is in.

Apparently our FR Mormons have decided to INGNORE the warning given by that great PROPHET - Brigham Young.

Ok i was slow to catch on to what you were saying. yes if that was what was actually said they might be dammed, using your words

But you did not get it right.

132- 58to 66 is not a law that forces or even suggests that every man have more than one wife but is the law of the priest hood if ordained by God and there can only be one priest on earth at one time.

Also this is confirmed by the book of Mormon.


(Jacob 2:27-29)

A: “Wherefore, my brethren, hear me, and hearken to the word of the Lord: For there shall not any man among you have save it be one wife; and concubines he shall have none;


So since Joesph was the priest( in my view self appointed ) he was simply making sure he could have as many wives as he wanted.

As far as the other Mormons are concerned, they can only do the same thing if they are commanded to, and no one at least at that time was commanded to, maybe they were later on but i am not reading no more, enough.

This is the first time in years i have read any thing except the Bible, that means i do not read Church doctrine, Martin Luther doctrine, Catholic doctrine or that of any professor, maybe i miss something by being that way but i don,t think so.

I just read the one on Joesph Smith you gave me and like i said, i am not reading no more because they can Change the circumstances when ever God tells them.

Then you are missing some REALLY good nuggets of info!!


Mr. Millet:
 
I don't think we can ever transcend Joseph Smith or consider him to be a valued personality, but now we'll move on.
I don't think you'll see that among believers in the faith, because there are too many other things that came from him
that are the reasons why we do what we do and we are what we are. That there are unanswered questions, to be sure.
That there are things that I'm as anxious as the next guy to learn more detail on, I really want to know. But in the interim,
 it really doesn't, doesn't trouble me.
We're in the religion-making business, as you intimated earlier, only for a short time, I mean, compared to the
Christian church, which has been at this for a couple of millennia. We're about halfway to Nicaea.
And so, and so in that sense — I remember a very tender moment. I was speaking with — I've been invited
to the Salt Lake Theological Seminary, basically an Evangelical seminary, to discuss a book I had done on Jesus.
And they had read it, and they wanted me to come and just respond to questions.
And it was, it was a very enjoyable couple of hours.
 
The very last question that was asked by one of my friends there was this one.
 
He said, 'Bob, what can we do for you?'
 
And I, I wasn't ready for that question. I said, 'What do you mean?'
 
He said, 'What can we, as Evangelicals, do for our Mormon friends?'
 
And I, I guess my mind could have gone a hundred different ways, but what I came back with was this.
 
I said, 'Boy, I appreciate you asking that. I don't think I've ever been asked that.'
 
But, but I said, 'Try this. Cut us a little slack, will you? Give us a little time.
We're in the religion-making business, and this takes time. It takes centuries.
 
And, and trying to explain the faith and articulate the faith, that doesn't come over night.
We've really only been about that for 20 or 30 years.'
