Heyyyyy haha I was a missionary. Loved it. Sorry if we annoyed any of you, we think we’ve got a good thing and want to share it. I acknowledge that a lot of us need to chill out though haha
@MemeResearcher, agreed, some of the people in my mission could’ve taken the intensity down a few notches. How long you been back?
@MemeResearcher, so I must ask, why Mormonism?
@gocol, it's called the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints, we read the book called the Book of Mormon and prayed asking God if it's true. I did and found it to be true and invite you all to do the same!
@plarece, I'm I has read some of it and it seemed inconsistent with it's self. I was specifically curious about why you think it is true instead of an other believe system. For instance is there a foundational belief that you see in it but not in any other, or is it many small things?
@gocol, I'd start by reading all of it and try out going to one of the church congregations to learn a little bit more. I asked a lot of questions there and they filled out the wholes I had.
But to answer your question I guess it's both foundational and the small things that I've seen. And what I love about the church is that no one tries to convince you of anything, they only invite you to search and seek for yourself to know if it's true If you genuinely want to know
@plarece, I'm not looking for faith I'm confident in what God has given me. I was just trying to understand better
@gocol, that's great! I'm just saying to better understand you gotta read the whole thing and ask God if it's true.
@plarece, I'd lov to be able to do that but I don't have time to read all opposing doctrines in the entirety. So I find it more efficient to ask others why what they believe is important and significant
@gocol, attend to one of the congregations and ask!
@plarece, I'm for personal reasoning, not rehearsed theological theorems. sorry for seeming demanding, you have no objection to answer
@gocol, well I can tell you that nothing is rehearsed in how we got to our beliefs and knowledge of what we know is true.
Each one of us has had our own journey, and the similar things that we all share is that we sought out on our own by reading the book of Mormon, praying and attending church with questions we have. I only suggested that you read the whole thing cause you mentioned inconsistencies. But I can promise that If you do your best maybe reading a few verses a day you'll end up finding the answer.
@Reedmg, three years now. Philippines Baguio mission
@gocol, replying to the original question, I believe I’ve received revelation from God.
@MemeResearcher, nice, four years today for me. Japan Fukuoka
@Reedmg gnarly dude, Japan seems amazing but that might just be because I’m becoming a weeb haha
@MemeResearcher, three years ago for me too, Kansas Witchita Mission
No no no, I know this game... you won’t be sucking any blood tonight, “mormons.”
Fun fact: the only difference between an organized religion and a cult is how successful they are.
(If this angers you, it’s because you don’t want to accept that you’re in a cult. Downvote to let me know I’m right.)
@I Are Lebo, When I was in a youth group, in middle and high school, we were called a cult a lot, because we were pretty well known, and because we had a T-shirt that we all wore on Wednesday’s as a witnessing tool.
If your local Mormons actually want to come into your house, run as far away from that place as possible.
Lmao the Mormons were in my neighborhood today so my roommate and I turned out all the lights and hid
