2008 Book of Mormon Reading, #2

I have an 1830 edition.  So in reading Chapter I, it is very apparent that Genesis patriarchal imagery is set within a time period of Zedekiah and Judah’s apostasy.  But there is no mentioning of Jesus or Only Begotten.  So why is Jesus and reference to Him as Only Begotten in the JST of Genesis […]

Gospel Teaching

I just read Kevin’s story about his black bro, “Squareboy“. I would enjoy it if Kevin could meet my black brother.  Here he is in the pic . . . at what he loves best . . . teaching and preaching the Christ-centered gospel.

Is McCain a fundamentalist?

“Our message will be we all share common conservative principles,” he said. “Fundamental conservative political philosophy, which has been my record.” I am laughing in my chair tonight over McCain’s choice of words today in the media.  I will remember this statement. There is nothing more important than holding to the fundamentals. Especially when it comes to […]

Mormon/Evangelical Conversation (Bridging The Divide), Part two

Book #2 just came in the mail, today. Bridging The Divide: The Continual Conversation Between a Mormon and an Evangelical (Monkfish, 2007) I will try to keep “Dialogue” with book #1, Claiming Christ, and “Conversation” with book #2, Bridging the Divide.
