One last thing – Blake Ostler’s books

I have read through the first chapter of Blake’s book, Exploring Mormon Thought: Of God and Gods (2008). I will pick it up again and start reading. Later all.  It has been a fine spring. God is all-powerful.  God is all-knowing.  God is all-loving. He is so good.

Bumping into Kerry Shirts . . .

Ok, so I bump into Kerry at the convenience store on the east corner of 1st Street where our church building sits.  The guy is a podcasting machine . . . over 700 videos . . . unbelievable.  I am telling you all — Kerry is making his mark in backyard LDS apologetics history. So I connect […]

Prosecution Against False Prophets

We covered Jeremiah 23 tonight in our church Bible study. There is hardly any prosecution against false prophets and their false prophecies in America, today. And for the ones that do . . . oh my, they are going to end up as popular as the ancient prophet, Jeremiah. The holy words of God make Jeremiah stagger like […]

This week’s family discussion around the dinner table

John 14:28 My Father is greater than I. This phrase has provoked a very deep, ongoing discussion in the Wood household.  My oldest son, Joshua (13 years old),  initiated the conversation Sunday night after listening to my Bible message in the morning.  And it has continued each day since.

And I use to believe O. Kendall White Jr. . . .

I was so naive in years past. Pick up Revisiting Thomas F. O’Dea’s The Mormons Contemporary Perspectives (2008). Read White’s article, “Thomas F. O’Dea and Mormon Intellectual Life:  A Reassessment Fifty Years Later.” At one time, White had me fooled about “a [neo-Mormon] shift toward a Calvinist version by grace alone.” Perhaps that is the […]

What do you remember of your preexistence?

I don’t remember anything. It has been taught by LDS Authorities since my birth in S.E. Idaho back in 1969 that I did preexist with God.  But I can’t remember.

One more Easter testimony – Bob Powell

I grew up in a family where we pretended to be a Christian family, that is, we had a home church that we attended when it was convenient but didn’t really practice any Bible reading or prayer.  At about the age of 25, I decided that religion was a crutch needed by people who couldn’t […]
