I agree that Heavenly Father picked him a long time ago, a very long time
God is a God of order and his kingdom is ordered...
The pick is inspired and "expected" to be President Monson. It is not a foregone
conclusion though precedent says that it will be him.The Lord picked
him Long ago, why must the Lord be short-sighted and have to pick another now?
How come its based on senority? Shouldn't the pick be inspired? This is an
opportunity for the LDS church to capitalize on the goodwill Pres Hinckley
engendered and the high profile of Mitt Romney. Kind of like when the catholic
church pick a Pole, John Paul II. Wasted opportunity if you just stick to
senority. My two cents. No offense intended.
What exactly were his WWII experiences?
During my life time in the church I have seen many, many changes. The church
today is not the same church of my grandparents. There is still much work and
change needed to reform the church for a logical world presense. Monson has the
ability and opportunity to change and lead the church into a new world of
enlightment and understanding. We wish him well in the tremendous work he has
ahead of him.
