I believe members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints truly do strive to live the principles of the Gospel. We are not perfect and do not pretend so. And because we believe in God and Jesus Christ and strive to pattern our lives and actions after them unfortunately we are condemned, misunderstood and treated shabbily sometimes. But God and Jesus Christ were also treated this way. There will always be those (even members not active) and non-members who will choose not to understand what we believe also not accepting us for who we are. I've always thought they were like that because they just didn't understand why we believe what we do. I feel bad for those who have not been taught the Truth and continue to hope that some day there will be peace, kindness, love and we'll love and forgive them in spite of their weaknesses and imperfections..because we are not perfect.And the Lord expects us to set an example.


I haven't listened to the Beck program for a while, but I was driving to a meeting yesterday flipping the dial. The importance Jewish Rabbi on the Beck show was talking about the of distinguishing a good christian from a nonpracting christian, mormon..., atheist from a bad atheist....so on.

He said, "we live in a time where what we do is far more indicative of who we are than what we say or believe....I think this applies in matters of race, gender, politics, religion, etc. I think he summed it up rather succinctly. We should choose to consume or not consume accordingly.

read Moroni ch 7 regarding charity. I think this says it all.
