Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

Excuse me Ned. Did you say he receives his revelation from God ??? Do you mean kinda like intuitive insight gained through prayyer and/or meditation or are you talking more like text messages or perhaps even hallucinations ?

Steven, why don't you look up the definition of revelation... I haven't had an opportunity to sit down with President Monson to ask him specific questions about how he receives revelation.

I figure he just makes it up as he goes along, just like the pope, the pastor and the priest. Just a bunch of con artists playing the long con and fleecing the flocks.

Ahn Sahng-Hong, the second coming of Jesus Christ and the first leader of the World Mission Society Church of God and was replaced (after his death) by Zang Gil-Jah who is "God the Mother".

Doesn't anyone else find it odd that some of these continuing revelations have the habit of "continuing" along ethic, national, state and sometimes even city based lines?


I've concluded that this God figure is very logistically orientated, does he wear a brown uniform and only make right-hand turns too?


Forget our Ford and his model-T, after all, who delivered the first Model-T? Yup, UPS.

"What has Brown done for you?"
"What have you done for Brown and his holy right-hand turn?"
"In times of of great personal difficulty, when you've lost all hope, make a right-hand turn"
"Synchronizing the world of commerce"

You may think I am trolling this thread BUT YOU WOULD BE DEAD WRONG! I'm just kicking down to you the logical evolution to the fascist/socialist capitalistic/communist dystopia that this forum clearly outlines we're heading towards.

Make a right hand turn in a classic Model T and you be assured 70 virgins in the afterlife.


Oh its just a bit of fun....

Tithing—a Commandment Even for the Destitute.
http://lds.org/conference/talk/display/ ... 13,00.html

Taken straight from the horses mouth...lds.org. Sickening. If you want the full blessings of God, you have to go to the temple. To go to the temple, you have to get a temple recommend by being a member in good standing. To be a member in good standing, you have to pay 10% of your income to the church no matter how poor you are. It's pay to play religion, just like scientology.

This is the Continuing Revelation of Mr.Danksworth.

Interesting that you only cover one side of it. A portion of the donations given to the LDS church go to helping member families that are destitute... no one in the church goes without. Those who make very little and can't meet their day to day needs for clothing and shelter and food receive far more than what they would pay in tithing in the form of support from the church. The system is so efficient that the lds church is often one of the first responders to natural disasters as well. We were in after hurricane Katrina long before the government got there... same with the tsunami in asia.

You will not see an LDS member at a soup kitchen or the local food bank. The church has a very efficient welfare system.

It's too bad you people who are so set against religion don't take time to do proper research before you attack an organization that does much good in the world.

By the way, here is an excellent article about the church's welfare system.

Maybe those people wouldn't have to be on church work-fare if they didn't have to pay 10% of their income to the church in the first place. A lifetime of investing 10% at compound interest would make the average person worth a million dollars (plus) at retirement age.
