CosmicJ And seing the multitudes, Jesus went up on a mountain and when he was seated his disciples came to him. Then he opened his mouth and taught them saying; Believers are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned
It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.
Mathew 5:13-16

Jus the book of Mathew is so Incredable! How it speaks to my every fiber. Body mind and soul
So much truth there, every letter!

I think Obama is more of a so called "Christian" then Romney is!
Obama just called himself a "Christian" again last night. I think he shows more "Christ like" virtues then Romney. Romney is a bona fide Mormon he believes more in Joseph Smith
than Jesus Christ.

I believe you're doing more than voting, sir...you're casting false stereotypes.

Mormons do not "believe more in Joseph Smith than Jesus Christ." I'm optimistic that you know that.

I hate it when anger or exasperation impels me to act a pedestrian version of myself...launching off the mark, hackneyed archetype relating to other groups of people. I nourish hope that you only rarely belly-flop into similar practice, BLUEBLOCR.

Whomever Mr Romney believes first, Christ or the man in the mirror, I'll refrain from speculating. But I'm confident Joseph Smith is down the list.

Blue,

you should stick to telling people the earth is 6000 years old and humans had dinosaurs for pets

you clearly don't know anything about comparative world religions

Mormons ARE Christians you idiot, and they "believe" in Jesus Christ as much as any other Christian does

no wonder you failed high school biology, your head was counting angels on pins

Jennie,
Thanks for sharing! your probably a Mormon right?
I am not sitting in judgment of the LDS or other organized religions. Just being discerning. I to was baptized a Mormon and being involved in the church for nearly 2 years. I recognized that I was being taught more on the book of Mormon and the story of Joseph Smith. With only tidbits of the true Bible and Jesus thrown in here and there. I feel like a lot of Mormons get caught up in their own story rather then the story of Jesus. Jesus is the only name and the only way to God. When Jesus declared that He is the Word and before the foundations of earth were laid, the Word was established. True? So can you really believe God needed Joseph Smith to come along some 1800 years later to add to His Word?
The book of Mormon, pearl of great price,doctrine of covenants. These are just more laws written by man. The main message of Jesus was to put away the laws because no man through works can enter the Kingdom. Except through Him and His Grace! so I believe that all these latter day religions A.D. Mormon Catholic Muslim Seventh-day Adventist Luthern etc. are all stereotypes of the True Church. They all have their so-called "prophets" adding to the Word of God as if Jesus didn't get it all right the first time.
Please don't get me wrong I love the Mormons. I think they are a wonderful example of humility and family virtues. But seriously the DOC the laws of what you can can't eat drink and wear. Along with all the theoracy and symbolism. Baptism of the dead. And the worst is that if you're not baptized in the Mormon lineage your baptism isn't true and you can't be saved. This is on par with the Muslims. I know now in my spirit you don't need an extra book of laws to gain access to God you only need to know Jesus and His Word!
This is my testimony that Jesus is the christ and the only true savior
Amen

Thanks for your reply, BLUEBLOCR.

May I offer a few comments on your post...

.And the worst is that if you're not baptized in the Mormon lineage your baptism isn't true and you can't be saved. This is on par with the Muslims.


Not really accurate...Mormon doctrine asserts that ALL mankind are saved from physical death and preserved in one of the "three Kingdoms of Heaven" ...regardless of baptism, faith or good works. Baptism doesn't save...it's ordained as a physical manifestation of our inner commitment to follow Christ...

The main message of Jesus was to put away the laws because no man through works can enter the Kingdom.


Christ did not annul the law...He nullified animal sacrifice and the ceremonial feasts, washings and observances demanded by Mosaic Law.

Eternal laws such as the Ten Commandments, parents teaching children, caring for the poor, and other righteous principles remain in effect as well as criminal and civil law.

No one is exalted by good works alone. But the de-emphasis of good works by many Christian sects is tragic...especially in a grief stricken world so obviously in need of kindness and benevolence.

I'm personally inspiredby the mormon emphasis on doing good works. It heartens me to transcend my negligent and inconsiderate self-ness and attempt worthy actions...rather than linger under my little toadstool and allege that I'm "saved" while the world destructs.

Professing or making a pretense at Christian endeavor doesn't elevate me above other people. But certainly Christian action exalts me above my own self-centered, self concerned, self seeking nature...

If the LDS sphere of belief is not for you...Amen and so be it, Blue...we all believe our own path is best...but there are many paths to the same mountain...

You won't find this in the Bible because Jesus actually said:
"Seek not the law in your scriptures, for the law is life, whereas the scripture is dead. I tell you truly, Moses received not his laws from God in writing, but through the living word. The law is living word of living God to living prophets for living men. In everything that is life is the law written. You find it in the grass, in the tree, in the river, in the mountain, in the birds of heaven, in the fishes of the sea; but seek it chiefly in yourselves. For I tell you truly, all living things are nearer to God than the scripture which is without life. God so made life and all living things that they might by the everlasting word teach the laws of the true God to man. God wrote not the laws in the pages of books, but in your heart and in your spirit. They are in your breath, your blood, your bone; in your flesh, your bowels, your eyes, your ears, and in every little part of your body. They are present in the air, in the water, in the earth, in the plants, in the sunbeams, in the depths and in the heights. They all speak to you that you may understand the tongue and the will of the living God. But you shut your eyes that you may not see, and you shut your ears that you may not hear. I tell you truly, that the scripture is the work of man, but life and all its hosts are the work of our God. Wherefore do you not listen to the words of God which are written in His works? And wherefore do you study the dead scriptures which are the work of the hands of men?"

"And now I speak to you in the living tongue of the living God, through the holy spirit of our Heavenly Father. There is none yet among you that can understand all this of which I speak. He who expounds to you the scriptures speaks to you in a dead tongue of dead men, through his diseased and mortal body. Him, therefore, can all men understand, for all men are diseased and all are in death. No one sees the light of life. Blind man leads blind on the dark paths of sins, diseases and sufferings; and at the last all fall into the pit of death.

"I am sent to you by the Father, that I may make the light of life to shine before you. The light lightens itself and the darkness, but the darkness knows only itself, and knows not the light. I have still many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them yet. For your eyes are used to the darkness, and the full light of the Heavenly Father would make you blind. Therefore, you cannot yet understand that which I speak to you concerning the Heavenly Father who sent me to you. Follow, therefore, first, only the laws of your Earthly Mother, of which I have told you.

I thought that this thread was for SuperTopo atheists to tell their story and make a statement of their lack of blind faith?

So to you ignorant religious f*#ks, unless you want me to go back to the Christian thread and start making fun of the god you haven't seen in 2,000 years, then go away.

hey Blueblockr and Sierra Ledge Rat, Peace be with you my friends!
I am quoting from the Essene Gospel of Peace, the contents of which represents only about a third of the complete manuscripts which exist in Aramaic in the Secret Archives of the Vatican and in old Slavonic in the Royal Archives of the Habsburg (now the property of the Austrian Government).

We owe existence of these two versions to the Nestorian priests who, under pressure of the advancing hordes of Genghis Khan, were forces to flee from the East towards the West, bearing all their ancient scriptures and ikons with them.

The ancient Aramaic texts date from the 3rd century after Christ, while the old Slavonic version is a literal translation of the former. Exactly how the texts traveled from Palestine to the interior of Asia into the hands of the Nestorian priests, archeologists are not yet able to reconstruct for us.

"And the truth shall bear witness of itself.
