A Truth that Should Enter into Our Plans, at Least a Little

July 26th, 2016 by G.

We live in a world dominated by an evil conspiracy aiming at the corruption (ultimately, self-damnation) of Mankind.

Brazen Sin

July 26th, 2016 by G.

The opposite of ‘Hypocritical’ is ‘penitent’.

This is actually quite clear if one reads Jesus’s denunciations of hypocrisy in context. What makes hypocrisy actually wrong? That it is a way of refusing to repent of one’s sins.

People who remark on brazen wrongdoers (whether they are speaking of themselves or others) that ‘at least they are not hypocrites’ have missed the point entirely.

-thus the Siris blog

Voter Anger, Citizen Distress

July 26th, 2016 by G.

Haunting this year’s presidential contest is the sense that the U.S. government no longer belongs to the people and no longer represents them. And this uneasy feeling is not misplaced. It reflects the real state of affairs.

thus Myron Magnet, boss at City Journal.

In the middle of moving and doing a house remodel, the blessings of the Sabbath are very, very acute.

The Spirit Whispered, There is No Spirit

July 20th, 2016 by G.

Yet another soul came out lately as an atheist. No names-but this soul is like others that have trod the broad and progressive path. They started out by rejecting the church’s morality and marriage doctrine, because “the ‘Spirit’ confirms the Church was wrong.” And now that same being has led them to believe there is no Spirit.

Astonishing. (more…)

Explosion in Panaca

July 15th, 2016 by John Mansfield

Panaca, Nevada goes back to 1864 when it was Panaca, Utah, a couple years before Nevada’s boundary was moved another degree east to the 114th Meridian. It was an agricultural community supplying mining camps. “Tranquil and religious, Panaca never had an easy relationship with its rambunctious neighbors, but it has outlasted nearly all of them.” Today with a population of 900, it is the only dry town in Nevada. There is a Panaca Nevada Stake of the LDS church, a Panaca 1st Ward, and a Panaca 2nd Ward. The last time I was there was two nights before the 2012 eclipse. The next morning I visited graves in Enterprise, 50 miles east of Panaca.

A weird crime occurred there Wednesday evening. (more…)
