Bill/BeternU, Folks this is Skippy. I started by going to his first reference site ( http://www.gotquestions.org/Mormons.html ) I started reading the scripture references that were not from the King James Bible which the LDS church reconizes as THE VERSION to STUDY. Even in the references I found nothing that says Bill/BeternU right, Skippy wrong. I also found a discepency in the verses listed. In John 4:24 it says,"God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in s pirit and truth."...

It is a hope and is comfort to the Believer that their future is one without the perils of this world and this life. Comfort is yet another ministry of God's Holy Spirit which doesn't prevent the...

Thanks for posting that Buffalo. Although many don't believe the accounts recorded in Scripture of what happened at Crucifixion or that it even happened at all I find one of the most interesting comments being that of the Centurion upon observing Christ Spirit pass, at physical death, and observing the Earth Quake making the statement "Truly this was the Son of God".
