We learn how to become like Him by following His path, which includes marriage so that we can be eternally married after mortality.

  • Is Utah a mormon theocracy?

    It is not. Yes, the Church wields a strong influence over the members of the Church who are a majority of the population. Thus, it appears that the vote goes the way the Church prefers most of the time but not always. There have been a number of occasions where the vote has gone against the Church's recommendations.

  • Why do Mormons hate porn?

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is opposed to pornography because it is carnal, sensual and devilish. We are here to overcome the world, or the ways of the world and porn is the epitome of worldliness. Porn will drag you down from spiritual achievements to base carnality. All should avoid it as a spiritual plague. show more

  • Do Mormon temples have booby traps?

    There are no treasures and no traps. The architecture is simple yet beautiful. The decor is peaceful and the rooms are all functional for the performance of sacred ordinances. You are sadly misinformed if you thought otherwise.

  • What do Christians mean when they say God won’t make you do anything that you don’t want to do?

    Best answer: We learn to obey God from the consequences of our choices. When we make a wrong choice, we see the bad results and learn not to make that mistake again. God does not force us to obey. We choose to obey when we learn about the benefits or blessings of obedience. Thus, the evil in the world comes from people who make wrong choices, ... show more
    Best answer: We learn to obey God from the consequences of our choices. When we make a wrong choice, we see the bad results and learn not to make that mistake again. God does not force us to obey. We choose to obey when we learn about the benefits or blessings of obedience. Thus, the evil in the world comes from people who make wrong choices, hurting themselves and others. The good in the world comes from those who are trying to do what is right, obeying God and caring about one another. Christ summarized God's law by simply stating, love God and love your neighbor. If we do that, all of the social problems will go away.

Then, the false religions fight each other and the true religion to create chaos and misery and to draw believers away from the truth. Remember that it is Satan's sole purpose to destroy the work of God. Therefore, evil will always fight against goodness. That is what all wars come down to. One side believes they are better than the other and vice versa. Since all war is unethical, it makes all wars religious to one extent or another.

  • If there’s a God why is Trump president?

    People make their own choices and then have to live with the consequences. That is how we learn right from wrong. If we learn, we don't make the same mistake twice. History has proven that people don't always learn but repeat the same mistakes. God does not hover over us and micromanage our lives.

  • Trinitarians stop avoiding my question, please. I do not bite. Can you answer this one with all honesty?

    They are not the same. The Father and the Son are two distinct individuals who work together, in unity, in concert, to bring to pass our salvation. Thus, they are one in spirit or in purpose; they are of one mind and will. Christ taught that we should be one as He and the Father are one. That doesn't mean that we all become one being, but rather... show more

  • Is it wrong for a father to hit his 10-year-old son for crying after hurting himself?

    Yes, it is wrong. That was child abuse. I understand the "man up" mentality, that we are supposed to able to bear our hurts without complaint. That, of course is wrong.

That is an exhibition of pride and pride is wrong. We can learn to bear our hurts, yes, but we don't have to be subjected to abuse to learn it. I believe we can give the child some leeway and help them to lovingly get over the hurt. The Dad's behavior teaches fear and that does not help the situation.
