This notion bothers atheist. None can deny that you need bucket loads of faith to live and move about in the world. A purely rational approach to modern living would grind everything to a screeching halt. Who could rationally drive a car without the faith that all the other cars will obey the laws? Expand […]

The Greatest Sin Man Can Commit

by James Muir
sin-of-man

In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Propterea sicut per unum hominem in hunc mundum peccatum intravit et per peccatum mors et ita in omnes homines mors pertransiit in quo omnes peccaverunt.

Reading in today’s paper yet another unbelievably evil episode of a 15 year old kid killing his entire family and craving to go out and kill more has moved me to speak to the phenomena in spiritual terms. I had this thought already on the back-burner some time since the previous tragedy of the young […]

Why The LDS Will Never Become Zion

Been at it more than forty years and nary a nibble fishing for Zion among those directly charged with bringing it forth and establishing it. WHY? Look at the history of Zion. The antediluvian Zion was a refuge from the wanton destruction of all believers as evidenced by Enoch having to miraculously defend his city. […]
