Priestcraft amoung us?

A huge stumbling block that I think (this is the gospel according to MK) we will see in the last day is that of “False Prophets” and “Priestcraft”.  I think we need to be very vigilant and remember where divine revelation comes from, and return to the basics of the gospel.  Spending to much time worrying about the unknown leaves your faith, hope, and charity in a venerable place.

Jesus warns of this in Matthew 24:11,24

11. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew

Meeting the Challenges of Today – My Thoughts

As I mentioned before, I have been reading/listening to talks while I am on the treadmill, and my favorite recent talk is called “Meeting the Challenges of Today” by Neal A. Maxwell.  This talk was given at a BYU devotional on October 10, 1978.   The reason I picked this talk at first was its reference to the founding fathers and its reference to secularism and establishing irreligion as the state religion.  But that talk has more to do with fore ordination and how we should prepare for what is to come.  I want to highlight several points in his talk, …

Week of Love – Final Post

I was reading a talk recently by Jeffery R. Holland called “How Do I Love Thee“.   (This is the talk I am going to base my Charity talk on for Sunday this week)   In that talk, he talks about the title of his talk. 

I have taken for a title to my remarks Mrs. Browning’s wonderful line “How do I love thee?” (Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sonnets from the Portuguese [1850], no. 43.) I am not going to “count the ways” this morning, but I am impressed with her choice of adverb–not when do I love thee nor where do I

Taxes are our Doom.

Tax his land,

Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.
Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.
Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.
Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.
Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.
Tax all …

Week of LOVE – Part Three and Four

I have to say I am sorry, because I did not get a post in yesterday for the “Week of Love” (best Barry white voice please when saying Week of Love).  But I took my better half shopping for a treadmill, and out to lunch.  And then I had to put the treadmill together last night.  We bought the Horizon GS1050T, you can purchase the ProForm version at amazon.com (Proform 1050T Treadmill).  Right now they are having a great sale on them at Sports Authority as well (SportsAuthority.com).  Now before I get booed off the stage, I …

All HAIL King Obama

Once again, Obama shows that he knows more, and can get more done than Congress.  He has bypassed congress with an executive order, and plans on making appointments during Congress recess.

First, he has created a fiscal commission because Congress did not do it quick enough.

“I’ve also called for a bipartisan fiscal commission. Unfortunately this measure, which originally had received the support of a bipartisan majority of the Senate and was cosponsored by Senators Conrad and Gregg, Democrats and Republicans, was blocked there. So I’m going to be creating this commission by executive order.” [Source]

Second, he is going …

Week of Love – Part 2

The second post of “The Week of Love” (once again, say it with your best Barry White voice), is Aimee’s (aka Momzoo) ability to improve herself and her family.

In todays world, it is common place, and even encouraged to stagnate, and to stay where you are.  There are a lot of factors that make it easier to stay with the status quo and not to improve and change.  Society does not always push you to become a better person.  In fact, I would say that society tells you to do the opposite.  Follow the easy path, and if …
