Frankly, according to the Bible Christians are NOT stronger than Satan, and that is not because he is a spiritual being and they are physical/spiritual beings. If anything, having bodies makes Christians more vulnerable to his attacks, not less. As the apostle Paul observed, our bodies have "members," and since our members war against each other (Romans ...

Are you referring to anything specifically? If you can provide a specific instance, that might be more informative. In short: the answers are: Nullify, no. Takes precedence, yes. For example, polygamy is an eternal law. And although it is not practiced today, it has been practiced as noted in the Bible (Genesis 16:3; 25:1; 29:21-30; 30:3-4, 9), spoken ...

The Book of Mormon identifies one reason for God to command it: to increase the number of children born in the gospel covenant in order ...

I upvoted rhetorician's answer because I think that is the answer. However, from you question it seems that you're probably looking for an LDS perspective specifically, so I have an answer from the Book of Mormon to add to what has been said already. As is stated in other answers, without yielding to the Holy Spirit, we are powerless to Satan even with a ...

I am LDS. When a person stands and offers a prayer as the representative of a congregation of people---we say, Our Heavenly Father, but when we are praying only representing ourself (not speaking in behalf of all humanity), we don't need to say, OUR, because we are speaking personally to My Father. When said this way, we are not discrediting that all have ...
