I can relate to what he has gone through on so many levels experiencing similar childhood abuse. It's great to see his success with his career and family life. Hopefully, I can find a LDS Single woman who can accept my past like Sam's wife has done. In my experience, not many LDS Single women do...

A voice of Reason and other respondents,

I am puzzled by your assertions.

You and others appear to be saying "God" helped me change my life - without my knowledge, and without any worship, praise, or righteousness on my part.

So your god does what he does without regard for belief and "faith"?

He is "no respecter of persons"?

And people prosper or struggle with or without your "god" being "known to them"?

Or do you preach the doctrine found in Alma 30:17:

"...every man fared in this life according to the management of the creature; therefore every man prospered according to his genius, and that every man conquered according to his strength"?

Pray or don't pray - things will come to pass as they do. Prayer makes no difference.
Believe or don't believe - things will happen as they happen. Belief makes no difference.
Be a member of a Church or don't - things are as they are. Membership makes no difference.

Sounds like a "god" that makes no difference in human affairs.

Sounds like a "god" that cannot be distinguished from "no god at all."

Sounds like I am right.

Sounds like science to me.
