Mormon Decisions 10Mormon Scholars Testify – Royal Skousen on how he knows the BoM is true.

“As I was reading this passage, the Spirit witnessed to me, “This really happened.” What is interesting about this passage is that I didn’t actually read “she clapped her hands” (the reading based on the printer’s manuscript), but instead I read “she clasped her hands” (the reading found in the 1830 edition as well as in all LDS editions). Now I do not take this personal witness as evidence that I should reject the earliest reading, clapped. It simply means that the Lord witnesses the truthfulness of this book irrespective of the minor errors that have crept in. I know of no error that changes any doctrine or the basic account of the text. There is no error, awkward expression, or ungrammaticality in any of the printed editions of the book that will prevent the honest reader from gaining a testimony of the Book of Mormon.

Mormon Decisions 10Conference Report, October 1990, p 108; “Except where the wicked crime of incest or rape was involved, or where competent medical authorities certify that the life of the mother is in jeopardy, or that a severely defective fetus cannot survive birth, abortion is clearly a ‘thou shalt not.’ Even in these very exceptional cases, much sober prayer is required to make the right choice.” – Boyd K. Packer

Mormon Decisions 10Doctrines of Salvation 2:87; “When a man and a woman are married and they agree, or covenant, to limit their offspring to two or three, and practice devices to accomplish this purpose, they are guilty of iniquity which eventually must be punished. Unfortunately this evil doctrine is being taught as a virtue by many people who consider themselves cultured and highly educated. It has even crept in among members of the Church and has been advocated in some of the classes within the Church.” – Joseph Fielding Smith

Mormon Decisions 10Today we’re mixing things up again! I’m dividing this dilemma in two parts so let’s go!

Where Is Wisdom?, p 389-390; “…the writer calls attention to the well-known distinct primary divisions of the human race now on the earth, namely, the Caucasian, the Mongolian, and the Negroid; and that these branches of mankind differ not only in bodily appearance but especially in mental qualities. The black skin of the Negro is not simply an excessive sunburn; no Caucasian becomes black, however long he may reside in tropical climates; and no Negro born and bred in temperate climates ever becomes white.

Mormon Decisions 10Mormon Doctrine, p 770; “Stubborn people will be damned unless they forsake their course of obstinacy, turn to humility, and are “baptized without stubbornness of heart.” (Alma 32:14-17.) After baptism, as part of working out their salvation, the saints must strive to shake off every particle of stubbornness against any of the laws and ordinances of the gospel.”

crosses 3As I mentioned last week Melissa and I are organizing the daily dilemmas we post and I’m trying to ‘fix’ the nightmare I’ve created. If I ever do this again I give everyone permission to nag at me.

Today while working on this monstrosity I came across an interesting situation. The sheer amount of dilemmas for one of the subject matters stuck out like a red flag so I thought I’d share what I discovered. I’ve categorized all the topics from A to Z and in the category of ‘Christians’ I noticed just how much the Church disapproves of Christians and Christianity.
