"Last of all, He created man in His own image – male and female –
with dominion over all other living things," President Monson said....I've never
been able to reconcile the sentiment of this statement with the way of our
existence. We can say we are all in gods' image, but we do not see it. Instead
we see colours and nationalities and sizes and attributes and yes, even sexual
orientation. And we most decidedly make decisions based on these categories that
suggest we are not seeing the manifestation of gods' own image. As for the
dominion over all other living things part, do you suppose god meant for us to
use it to the extent that we can wipe species out? Happy Easter.
Today we celebrate the living GOD of this world who paid the price of our sins,
however not everyone that i go to church knows this. God is great! I am a
Baptist so praise GOD everyday. He loves you all and don't forget that it was
truely a miracle that he risen. NOT MANY KNOW THAT HE IS REAL!
This we know, that he is risen. He was, is, and is to come.
Thank you for posting this
"He created man in His own image,'Man-female'."God made man in women in
his image(moral image)like goodness,love, and no sin)not physical image'.We lost that image from the fall. Man went from normal(sinless)to
My grandson, age 4, was on the floor "listening" to conference and coloring.
His Mom said, "do you even know what they are talking about?"He says, "Yes
I do! they are telling me how to die and live again."
Kids sure do have wisdom of God more then we do!
I grew up in the Mormon church. I have not been attending any church for a few
years. I don't know where I missed out but I have always envisioned God as a
stern taskmaster, somewhat like a policeman in the sky who is taking notes on
whether we've been good or bad and is getting ready to punish us somehow in the
next life. With all the talk on the three degrees of glory I feel he must love
some of his kids more than others by making some more spiritual than others. I
have always had this feeling and I don't know where it comes from.
To Anonymous 7:04Our Heavenly Father does not love others more than
others. The Plan of Salvation is so that we may all become like him if we obey
his commandments. This life determines our eternal progression. God has not
changed his commandments. What is written in the ten commandments is just as
valid today as the day it was given to Moses on Mt. Sinai. The other
commandments which he has given can be found through out the Bible and the Book
of Mormon. We decide for ourselves where we shall fall into what mansion is
prepared for us. That is the greatest gift our Heavenly Father has given to us,
the opportunity to choose. Corinthians spells out the degrees of Glory in a
magnificient manner and Hebrews states by what power of priesthood governs the
Church of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is another witness to the Bible and
clarifies many of the falsehoods modern day Christians have used. As someone
once stated, the precepts of man mingled with scripture. Call and ask the
missionaries to come and teach the restored Gospel.
