Boy is he in for a surprise!
Elder Jeffery R Holland declared in February of this year that the Church is immune to error and will not fall into apostasy.
“Ours is that fail-safe, inexorable, indestructible dispensation of the fulness of the gospel… Unlike every other era before us, this dispensation will not experience an institutional apostasy; it will not see a loss of priesthood keys; it will not suffer a cessation of revelation from the voice of Almighty God. Individuals will apostatize, they may turn a deaf ear to heaven, but never again will this dispensation collectively do so. What a secure thought that is! What a day in which to live! What a way to cut through fear or faintheartedness”
I have no problem accepting Joseph Smith as a Prophet
An evening with margaret Barker and Stephen Webb
When was the last time you heard a high profile Catholic theologian state that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he brought important information to the earth?
Humility & Sweetness Soundly Defeats Arrogance
I am not a huge fan of extreme fighting, particularly female extreme fighting, I think it is wrong.
I must admit however, that I found the shocking victory of Holly Holm over Ronda Rousey extremely inspiring. I love it when the overwhelming underdog wins a decisive victory.

Think You Are Going to Skate by With a Cheap Obamacare Penalty in 2016? Think Again! Penalty Shock Fine Just Released
Folks. The 2014 $75 penalty was just another Obama ruse to get his horrific ‘health care’ law in place. The purpose is to collapse the health care system and get our citizens to BEG for single payer, Bernie Sanders style health care.
That is when your taxes go up to 75-80% of your income. You can take the pennies you have left over from your paycheck and spend any way your little heart desires.
2016 penalty for those who are not enrolled in Obamacare is a minimum of $695 dollars or 2.5% of your gross income, which ever is higher.
For a family of four who has two working parents and a combined gross income of $100,000 will pay $2500 per year for the privilege of NOT having Obamacare insurance.
With $5000-10,000 per year of up front payments (deductibles) before your coverage even kicks in…when will single payer insurance start in America?
2017? 2018? or 2019? We can’t go on much longer than this as the fines and penalties will continue to skyrocket every year until people are all tapped out.
Congratulations Barack. You won again. You beat Congress and the Supreme Court on the way to national tyranny.
Has anyone been keeping a log of Log’s logs? on other people’s blogs?
On one particular post, I counted 23 out of the 66 comments which is roughly 38.8%
Whose blog is this?
Is there no limit to how many logs a person can lay on another person’s blog?
I disabled the comments section on my blog to prevent two things from happening. One was to stop the paid LDS shills from trying to do damage control, the other was to prevent people from hi-jacking the thread. The comment section of two of the most popular LDS blogs have been ruined by a guy that is so incredibly divisive and critical of others and yet he plays the victim every time anyone calls him on it.
Invasion by Immigration
Large scale mass migrations become invasions and this actually appears to be a hijrah as he describes it. This is NOT going to end well. It appears the policies of the liberal socialist leaders in Europe and the US do not want to keep these lands from being overrun. Why???
I couldn’t figure out why other Arab countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, etc.) weren’t taking in refugees, so I started digging.
Hijrah is jihad by emigration.
It means moving to a new land in order to bring Islam there and is considered in Islam to be a holy and revered action:
“And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance, and whoever leaves
his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah.” (4:100)
“To me, it seems that he sees the same basic problems with the corporate church that we all do, but he takes it in a whole different direction. From a “fruits” point of view, when I read his stuff I don’t get nearly the same enlightenment or sense of understanding my own place in the grand scheme of things. I’m wondering, though, if this is just a result of my own lifelong conditioning for heartsell. From a scriptural viewpoint he certainly has a new perspective on things. While I can see where he gets to conclusions, I think that he sees many things that the verses he cites just don’t support He tends to wrest the scriptures quite a bit, in my opinion..”
Do I wrest the scriptures? Or is it that you have been so brainwashed by the corporate church, and void of the true spirit of revelation that you don’t know how to accept the literal interpretation of the scriptures?

Finding the Temple Endowment “Disturbing”
What went through your mind the first time you went through the temple endowment? Many people have been shocked at their first experience.
Marlin K Jensen: “ I think my little daughter was quite worthy, but she was so disturbed, I’ll say..”
“I think I understand from this article that binding doctrinal announcements are those sanctioned by the First Presidency in unison. If so, when and where did Presidents Sidney Rigdon and William Law line up in support and implementation of Celestial Marriage in its fullness as presented in Section 132?”
I believe that the concept of “progressive revelation” originally had to do with “continuous revelation” and the belief that the Lord’s church enjoys continuing revelations that remain consistent with previous revelations, and that all new revelations are congruent and harmonious with the past revelations, generally providing additional details and clarifications to past revelations.
Sadly, I think that for many Saints, the term “Progressive revelation” has come to mean “Revisionist Revelation”, or the belief that past doctrines that were presented by a past First Presidency as being true, can legitimately be overturned and revised by the current First Presidency.

Suffer the Little Children.. and the Gays?
The latest policy controversy is so frustrating that it makes those of us that resigned many years ago so angry that we want to join again to have the privilege of resigning again. Nevertheless, there are two issues that have been messed together. One has to do with stifling the agency of innocent people from making their own decisions. The other has to do with the successful attempt by a special interest group in making their lifestyle generally accepted which, according to Chuck Missler, is a sign of the times.
Here is a recent comment from someone who is responding to a gay person
“I have never been able to swallow this implicit contention that your sexual abnormality is any different or more privileged than my daughter’s congenital birth defects. Do we have to create entirely new categories of humanity and tell her there isn’t actually anything wrong (as she struggles to walk…seeing every minute that other can without effort) in order for her to lead a psychologically healthy life?
She isn’t going to get to do a lot of things she would like to in life. How are you any better than her? Why do we have to change the Plan for you and not for her? There are plenty of physically disabled folks who will never get to have sex or have children in this life.
Why are you so much better than them? Why is it supposed to be such an impossible burden for gays to live a celibate life when so many others, disabled and not, manage to pull it off however hard it may be? You aren’t God’s special little revelation, you’re just one more human with divine potential and human challenges.”
