there is nothing logical about the bible. if it were true, babies would be ripped apart, children wouldn't be raped, and mothers wouldn't be forced to watch their children die. when you begged him to come and help you he would, but he doesn't. christianity is a male chauvenistic religion. paganism was here long before it and if you take all the rules of the pagan religion and reverse them - you have christianity. i have a brain and i can put it together it's pretty simple. Christianity is a government made religion. Written out by King James and used to control his people. It worked. Of course the government has spent all this time promoting it it's in the governments favor 100% for the people to choose christianity. When they stop believing in Jesus they start questioning the government and everything else in the world and they lose a lot of power. It's common sense what is true and what is not. Christianity has a lot of good valid morals and I think it's great to use some of the stories to teach your kids things that they need to know it is not an evil religion at all unless you follow ALL the statutes which I gaurentee NO happy christian does - but if you pick and choose what you follow from the bible it is a great building block to a healthy and meaningful outlook on life. However it is not true. I take responsibility for my own actions I am not so weak minded that I need to blame the good on god and the bad on the devil. It's just life. I take it as it is and when i do wrong i do wrong and when i do right i do right. You all should use your brains and think about things. It's simple really.

I'm just wondering if you've actually read and studied the bible, or if you're going by what you may have took for granted from false teachings? The Devil doesn't make you do evil, but loves it when you do. After all misery loves company! You're right to say you're responsible for your own actions, because God blessed you with free will. He left your decisions in life up to you. What you do, how you behave, and where you spend eternity is entirely up to you! But remember - misery loves company in the end!

Since Mormon's are an offshoot of Christianity (believe in God, Christ and the Resurrection) then why would he have a problem with it. They believe that through faith and belief in Jesus that you are saved. I don't see a problem with that. I am a Methodist but have known Mormons all my life they are good people that only believe that a prophet was sent after the death of Christ which only makes sense.

Mormon doctrine says that Christ is a god not the God. They don't believe in the Trinity. Mormon's believe in polytheism. This is not Christianity.
They also believe that like Jesus, who was once a man like everyone else, and became a god, we too can become gods in the afterlife. Now I'm not saying every Mormon you talk to will say they believe this, just like not every Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, etc believes exactly the same way. I'm going by Mormon doctrine. And of course the Mormon recruiters don't tell you this because they want to sound normal and mainstream.

If that's true and I can't say for sure that it isn't, I cant find it. I have listened to the missionaries, read their book and research as much as I can find so far - their site and others and it appears that they believe the bible for what it is and that there were additional prophets sent after Christ's 12. That only makes sense - why would God quit talking to his people through prophets just because Christ was dead? I also don't see or have not found yet the part about become Gods in the afterlife. From what I have read it appears that we will go to live with God in one of his levels of afterlife and will strive to be as God - which is a great goal but never attainable.

The eternal progression and exaltation are at the heart of Mormonism. If you read "their book" and researched as much as you can, I don't now how you can miss that. They believe that some Mormons will reach Godhood.

http://www.lds.org/ldsorg/v/index.jsp...

http://www.lds.org/library/display/0,4945,11-...

This is the way our Heavenly Father became God. Joseph Smith taught: "It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the character of God.... He was once a man like us; ... God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself did" (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, pp. 345-46).

And some Mormon insight on godhood straight from the false prophets mouth:
Joseph Smith also wrote, "Every man who reigns in celestial glory is a God to his dominions" (TPJS, p. 374). This does not mean that any person ever would or could supplant God as the Supreme Being in the universe; but it does mean that through God's plan and with his help, all men and women have the capacity to participate in God's eternal work. People participate in this work by righteous living, by giving birth to children in mortality and helping them live righteous lives, and by bringing others to Christ. Moreover, Latter-day Saints believe that those who become gods will have the opportunity to participate even more fully in God's work of bringing eternal life to other beings. God is referred to as "Father in Heaven" because he is the father of all human spirits (Heb. 12:9; cf. Acts 17:29), imbuing them with divine potentials. Those who become like him will likewise contribute to this eternal process by adding further spirit offspring to the eternal family.

Latter-day Saints believe that God achieved his exalted rank by progressing much as man must progress and that God is a perfected and exalted man: "God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens! That is the great secret. If the veil were rent today, and the great God who holds this world in its orbit, and who upholds all worlds and all things by his power, was to make himself visible,-I say, if you were to see him today, you would see him like a man in form-like yourselves in all the person, image, and very form as a man; for Adam was created in the very fashion, image and likeness of God, and received instruction from, and walked, talked and conversed with him, as one man talks and communes with another" (TPJS, p. 345).
