Hell and Heaven

Let’s examine the matter, paying close attention to the historical context. Jesus presents the following story: “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. “So it was that the beggar died,…

Beware of Becoming Attached to Church Traditions

It should be very obvious that any church which is seriously trying to follow Jesus as Lord will be continually modifying its practices.  The Christians there will be constantly looking at what they are doing to see what could be improved.  When potential improvements are recognised, they will be put into practice without delay.  Nothing could be more obvious, could it? Those who prefer traditions over God Sadly, there can be no doubt that churches which properly attempt to…

Prophesy of Jesus Christ

Introduction One of the authenticating proofs for the inspiration of the Bible, which at the same time authenticate the claims of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the only Savior of the world, are the many fulfilled prophecies which find their fulfillment in the person and life of Christ, Jesus of Nazareth. We have in the Holy Scripture, an array of prophecies which extend over hundreds of years and yet find their complete fulfillment in the short…

The Living Christ

As we commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ two millennia ago, we offer our testimony of the reality of His matchless life and the infinite virtue of His great atoning sacrifice. None other has had so profound an influence upon all who have lived and will yet live upon the earth. He was the Great Jehovah of the Old Testament, the Messiah of the New. Under the direction of His Father, He was the creator of the earth. “All things were…

Who is JESUS CHRIST?

Meeting with the Twelve at Caesarea Philippi, Jesus asked, “Whom say ye that I am?” Simon Peter, the chief Apostle answered, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:15–16). Peter later testified that Jesus “was foreordained before the foundation of the world” (1 Peter 1:20). He was “in the beginning with the Father, and the Firstborn” (D&C 93:21). When the Father’s plan—the plan of salvation and happiness (see Alma 34:9)—was presented (see Alma 42:5, 8), one was required to atone to provide redemption and mercy to…

The Power of Your Genuis

Is Your Genius at Work? by Dick Richards is a fantastic book about discovering your genius and your purpose and identifying a career that fits well with both. This book was recently provided to me by the publisher, and it’s one of the few unsolicited books I received that I can enthusiastically recommend to others. Why do I say this? Because I personally derived a valuable result from reading this book – the identification of my own core genius….

Marriage Rights

To understand contemporary marriage and to protect it, we must understand the great subject of RIGHTS and LIBERALISM, creeping in (ha! ENFORCED) everywhere. This liberalism has now become the beating heart of modern matrimony. They say, it beats the daylights right out of matrimony. Marriage is the only most important CONTRACT of them all. Or it used to be. Why most important? Because we really LIVE inside a MARRIAGE, not so much in any specific country, climate, government or…

Overcoming Fear

Here’s a nice article on overcoming fear by Brian Tracy. I especially like the story about halfway through the article where Brian Tracy explains how he dealt with his fear of poverty as well as the “Corridor Principle.” Life is perverse in the sense that, the more you seek security, the less of it you have. But the more you seek opportunity, the more likely it is that you will achieve the security that you desire. How very true….
