My thought and question of the day is this:

When was the last time you saw a blessing from God stating this:

Alma 7:27; “And now, may the peace of God rest upon you, and upon your houses and lands, and upon your flocks and herds, and all that you possess, your women and your children, according to your faith and good works, from this time forth and forever.”

Since when has God ever blessed the things you own with His peace?  What about your flocks or maybe your car or home; do they need peace?  His blessing of protection or growth, etc, but peace? Really?

And what do you think of the way this verse is phrased because I thought it was rather offensive.  It says; “…and all that you possess, your women and your children…”

Why does the Mormon god refer to females as “your women”?  He’s either a male chauvinist or a god who thinks he owns people or both.  My husband has never and I do mean never referred to me in this manner and to be honest it’d never occur to him to do so.
