Follow-up Question

I got another follow-up from the same person asking:  “In your latest post there is some discussion on these two topics which imply that they are different.  My wife and I discussed this and what we came up with is that the first step is to have an audience with Christ (Second Comforter), from which point He will undertake to perfect you after which the Father will promise you eternal life (Calling and Election Made Sure).  Is that correct? If not could you shed some more light on this?” These are two different topics. They are related, but are different. I’ve… (Search hits: 3 in body, 2 in title, 0 in comments. Score: 288.09)

An Email (LDSFF)

…have a day-long trial preparation meeting with co-counsel tomorrow, an oral argument hearing on Friday, and I am preparing for a Federal jury trial in a couple of weeks. So spending a lot of time typing an email is problematic for my schedule. If you’d like, I can give you my office phone (provided in my email) Or my cell phone if you will keep it confidential. -Denver Snuffer I sent another follow-up email to the same anonymous inquirer explaining: I followed your link and tried to put my email response up there.

Responses to Various Comments

…an improvement. It was done because the church had the “right” to change it. The church leadership asserted they held “keys” that made them powerful enough to take the changes on and implement them. That is quite different from being either a revelation, a command from God or necessary for salvation of man. The change came about because of the research done in follow-up to an article suggesting dissatisfaction with the temple experience. That article was confirmed in polling of approximately 3,600 families in Canada and the U.S. The whole process was provoked by the members’ concerns and dissatisfaction with… (Search hits: 2 in body, 0 in title, 0 in comments.

The Facts

…rumors began. In a follow-up email, President Hunt said one of the issues was my “witness of Christ” (meaning my unequivocal statement that the Lord had ministered to me). I responded by asking if that meant the church expected me to deny my witness, or merely not to speak of it again. I have never received a reply to that question. I quit posting on my blog. On December 9, 2012 I met with President Hunt again and he said he had “defended me with one of the Brethren” since our last meeting. He asked if I had stopped blogging… (Search hits: 2 in body, 0 in title, 0 in comments. Score: 26.04)

Dubois: Have you received any individual revelations yourself, since you became president of the church under your own definition, even, of a revelation? Mr. Smith: I can not say that I have.” Then a bit later President Smith adds this comment: “If I live as I should in the line of my duties, I am susceptible, I think, of the impressions of the spirit of the Lord upon my mind at any time, just as… (Search hits: 1 in body, 0 in title, 4 in comments.

…that you believe or profess that, but the comment you made can easily be read that way. Now, I fully admit that my searching into this topic may not have yielded as much results as it should have, but it began years ago when I read an entry in Parley P. Pratt’s journal about the power or the priesthood, which I’ll post in a follow-up reply because it won’t fit here. As such, I welcome the rebuke (of sorts) and thank you for heeding the directive you received.

Remnant, part VI

…read the Book of Mormon, in depth, daily. It was through some of these that my Native American acquaintances found the gospel. I believe as more of us gentiles awaken to our awful situation, more of the remnant will be found until the gentiles will no longer need to be involved in the conversion of the remnant. Anonymous To follow-up with Denver’s post, I would mention a few salient thoughts. One of my dear friends is nearly 60 years old and he has spent a lifetime ministering to “his Indians.” When he was a much younger man, he was informed… (Search hits: 0 in body, 0 in title, 2 in comments.
