MP3s

With help from a volunteer the 40 Years in Mormonism has now been converted into a downloadable MP3 format. We hoped to release those before Christmas (and still may). This blog site is not equipped to handle that kind of service. Therefore, we have secured a new website from which all the papers and the

Strange Incense

Strange Incense

Light won the annual battle with darkness yesterday on the Winter Solstice. I wish light could win the battle in mankind’s dark heart. God requires holiness and cannot look upon sin with the least degree of allowance, as explained in D&C 1:31. If we fail to keep God’s ordinances exactly as prescribed, they are broken

Received Email

I received the following email, which I believe worth sharing: ___________________________ This is as good a spot, and manner, as any to thank you for staying aloof recently, and for resisting the urge to be a strong man. In the last month, I have had a vision and have been led by God in several

History Is Not A Sin

History Is Not A Sin

I have provided a link to the FAIR website where they amalgamate criticism of me. The criticism is fine, but there is one point where I believe they crossed a line. It needed a response. I have said I was worthy of a temple recommend when I was excommunicated. FAIR has denounced this as “false”
