Ironically, as I was told today that both Clayton Christensen and Thomas Monson
were both graduates of West High School in downtown SLC. Add Larry H. Miller to
that list and that's not a bad group of alumni. I know it's off subject a bit,
but I found it compelling after all the bad reputation stuff I have heard about
West over the years.
I love President Monson, too. And all my LDS family and friends. That's why I
will continue to warn him and beseech him to stop preaching "another
gospel" than the Cross-centered one delivered by the Apostle Paul. LDS
send out missionaries to share their message of a restored gospel. Can we
dialogue about the veracity of the message? Can we follow President Young's
admonition to "compare the message of the Latter-day Saints to thd Bible
and see if it is true"?Because that is clearly what God calls
us to do- to preach the Truth and pray for those under false doctrines. No
amount of good works can change wrong doctrines. When you add that someone can
pick up their free gift, "after all that they've done" to get it, that
nullifies free.Muslims, Buddhists, Catholics, etc., all do powerful
charity and ministry. The defining marker is not your ER response time or a
fabulous volunteer team. Biblically, it is "Who do you say that I
am?". I wish the GAs would have an open Q&A and clear up the public
misperceptions about the Mormon Jesus. Is He a polygamist who I can become
Leo Femedlers "faithful Christians can always make their lights brighter
through consistent prayer and scripture study." True, God said,
Let there be Light; he willed it, and at once there was Light.(Gen 1:3) The
LORD(Jehovah) created the heavens by his command, the sun, moon, and stars by
his spoken word. When he spoke, the world was created at his command (Psalm
33:6,9 GNT)also see( Heb 11:3)Through him(Jehovah) all things were made;
without him Nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life
was the Light of all mankind. (John 1:3-4) Creation Ex Nihlio.
Thank you byutv dot org for showing this broadcast. I happened to come across it
late last night and watched it. What a wonderful experience for those BYU
students to get to hear the words of our prophet. We love you Pres. Monson! If
you have not seen this talk you should go to byutv and watch it until he leaves.
He is so funny!
A master at relating to all walks of life. Best of all, its really who he is!
I happened to be driving through campus yesterday about 10:30am, and had to wait
as thousands crossed the byways, in the pouring rain, on their way to see the
Prophet we all love- warmed my heart to the core
"faithful Christians can always make their lights brighter through
consistent prayer and scripture study." That is TRUE!
Listening to the prophet every year or so was one of the highlights of my BYU
The quote Pres Monson quoted from the Lion King was written on the bathroom
mirrors while my children were young. Thanks Pres Monson for a great talk.
What a blessing to be sitting thousands of miles away and still hear inspiration
from a great man!
Letting your light shine and being an example means doing good unto others.
Following the golden rule.If you want your light to shine, LIVE your
religion.Discriminating against your fellow men is not shining your
light. Trying to make others follow your tenets is Satan's plan. You are an
example by your ACTIONS.I am waiting to see any light or shining
examples. Reading the comments by many* LDS posters on a regular basis, I don't
see it.*many, not all.
I agree with 'Schmidt' in Beverly Hills.
Sometimes through what may seemingly be our darkest hours, we find little
glimmers of hope. This certainly is one of them.My favorite quote
mentioned:"Such knowledge, such a personal testimony, is
essential if we are to safely navigate the sometimes treacherous paths through
life, with the adversary attempting to deceive us at every turn,"
We love you President Monson!
