This site contains positive information about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That church is often referred to as the Mormon Church or LDS Church, and members of that church are often referred to as Mormons, LDS, or LDS people. We hope this site will help strengthen the faith of members of that church and will provide answers to persons asking questions about that church. This site is not the place for people to speculate about religious matters. I have other blogs on Speculations about Mormonism and Science and Mormonism.
You are invited to leave replies to individual pages explaining your viewpoints or asking questions. However, replies are moderated, and replies that I believe are attacks on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be removed. The main criteria that I use in deciding if a reply is an attack is the “tone” of the reply. We are friends, even though we may differ in our religious beliefs. Our conversations need to have a feeling of “friendliness” and the sharing of viewpoints rather than a feeling of “argument” and attempts to prove that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is right or wrong.
In addition, comments, whether for or against the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that are overly long will be removed. The phrase “overly long” is ambiguous, and my judgment about the length of comments is final. As you consider leaving comments, please keep in mind that comments give visitors the opportunity to reply to comments made by me or by others in this blog. They are not the place for long discourses about particular religious concepts.
Replies considered spam will also be removed. Replies having links to commercial sites but having content appropriate to this site will be edited to remove the links; otherwise, the replies will be deleted. Unfortunately, because English is my only language, replies not in English will be removed even though they may be appropriate replies. The first time a person replies in this blog, I will review that comment. If the comment is approved, the person can post additional replies without having them moderated.
A number of years ago, I discussed the Gospel (online) over a four-year period with persons not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I’ve put my responses to them into a book in which I give my understanding of the basic teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and answer many criticisms of the church. In addition, I have a Gospel Defense section that serves as an educational resource for Latter-day Saints who answer questions about the church. That section contains a copy of several days of intense (time wise) electronic discussions with critics of the church. The Gospel Defense section also contains my replies to critical emails and comments that I’ve received from visitors to this site.
I’ve written a number of essays on topics that relate to religion, and those essays are posted in the site. In addition to my writings, this site has pages of inspirational and fun things that I hope you’ll enjoy.
This site uses the blog format so people can reply to individual pages, but it is really a traditional website that uses pages instead of posts. New pages may be added from time to time, but new posts will probably not be added.
Even though this site concerns The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I speak for myself as an active member, and I do not represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or its members.
Thanks for stopping by!
