“Why Mormons Don’t Practice Ash Wednesday and Lent”

13 February

Today’s post comes courtesy of an article I saw on LDS Living. I’m going to post a few highlights from the article here, and then ask questions as we go along.

Marriage and Procreation More Important than Jesus

28 January

1 Corinthians 8:4-6; “As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) 6 But to us there is […]
