This week is Father’s Day, and while we will be celebrating our Earthly fathers, we too should remember our Heavenly Father. So too should we remember Adam, the father of human salvation (Luke 3: 38). While Christ is the author of our salvation, it was Adam that first accepted God’s grace (Genesis 2: 7) and is our father as the first human we know of to join and create an Earthly version of the Church of Jesus Christ (Moses 5: 4-5).

Though a tad late for Mother’s Day, I wanted to write a bit about our Heavenly Mother, a Goddess in her own right. We do not talk much about her, yet we know she is real. How do we know this? What should we do with this knowledge? Why don’t we worship her as we do God the Father? Is she even doctrinal, or merely a logical conjecture based on hints in the scriptures? More »

Every Christian, regardless of their faith, that accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Savior is saved. They have earned salvation, being saved by Grace.

To summarize, they wanted to know what the priesthood is, how it works (is it “magic”), why women couldn’t receive it, and what its limits are. This post took some research, but I hope I answered all their questions. Please keep in mind that this is my view of the Doctrine, and policies drawn from that Doctrine by the Church. I do not speak for the Church.  More »

After hearing two sides to an argument recently, both sides from members of the Church. I remained neutral. Not because I didn’t have a side but rather because my thoughts were outside the presented arguments. On the one (right) hand there was the idea that all things were equal, thus results are not varied. More specifically, men (and women) are poor because they do not work hard enough and we should do nothing to help them. On the other (left), jobs that do not pay well should be forced to pay better as someone has to do these jobs. This was countered with, only lazy people do those jobs. And in this vein, the argument continued.  More »
