· Today5:50pmHi Miguel.
My name is Sidney. And I also happen to live in Sydney Australia. No Joke
I appreciate your sincerity.
I must tell you however, that your earnest preaching has none of your desired effect on me.
I am so far removed from having any interest or belief in LDS religion that it sounds like babble to me . No offense, that's just how it sounds to me.
It is the same as someone telling me how wonderful an ancient greek god is, or a mystical african deity...it all sounds the same to me now.
So, I will ask you again, please do not preach to me or verify anything from scripture. I do not believe the scriptures to be words of god. Therefore what they say does not influence me to believe them. To me they are fabricated works of fiction. To believe that scripture is true because the scripture says it is, is just circular reasoning and has no solid ground to stand on.
I was hoping for a more substantial discussion with you.
I am not asking for you to prove or convince or convert me. This page is not about that. The opposite is true. You have come here to my page which is about refuting the false claims of the LDS church.
You told me you are willing to look at what I say, and take the challenge on. If you just preach and quote scripture then I will have to end it here. Because that to me is not a discussion. That is not a sharing.
So I implore you to keep to our standard of discussion, sharing, exploring together what is the truth.
Please read it and tell me what you think.
To be clear; I am NOT reading any scripture quote.
It is a waste of time writing them in, and they prove nothing to me nor do they help your case with me.
If these are poison to you then it is only because you have fully turned your back to the truth.
If you ignore the truth then you will be living in darkness, a self imposed blindness.
If this is the case then our discussion is over as I cannot force a blindman to see what he does not want to see.
And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
Thus saith thy Lord the LORD, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.
