I code stuff with my bare hands.

I like to make programs and devices smarter, and easier to use. I experiment with new, brilliant interface concepts. I'm a programmer, designer, web developer, and a nice guy.

I believe choices make us who are, and are a major part of how we and others feel.

I'm an address validator.

comment How do Mormon missionaries learn foreign languages so quickly?
@ThomasShields It's about an application of the Christian doctrine of the gift of tongues in a specific denomination, which is definitely on-topic for this site.

comment What is the reason and meaning of the symbols on the garments worn by Temple-worthy LDS members?
... not out of censure or censoring, but for respect. @Caleb A fair disagreement, to be sure, but I do not agree with your statement, "A good question may garner no good answers if it actually comes to that." -- In all my relatively limited experience on Stack Exchange, the best questions always have answers which can be up-voted for good, reliable sources, and "accepted" because it is the correct and authoritative answer to that individual inquiry. For what the asker is looking for here, no answers will be able to sufficiently meet those standards.

Just so you know, it's disingenuous for the temple ceremony to be quoted outside the temple regardless of specifically which covenants are made. Any source which does this is not authoritative and is not a good fit for this site.

@Narnian It's understandable if you didn't know that these are not discussed outside the temple since you are not LDS. As such, you've been informed and now you know. Has any honest Mormon ever shown you the garment? I doubt it, because it's sacred. And no one is threatening you. In fact, I personally do not disagree with you. But I do not think that you must be "subject to the most overly-sensitive person" to be respectful. The LDS website requests that these things not be discussed outside their temples‌​... (cont'd)

That dangling "more" was bothering me. :P

No, the answer is that Mormons who attend the temple know, and you can know too, but no honest Mormon will answer you here in a public setting.

This content is highly sacred to Mormons. The content in this question is offensive if discussed outside of Latter-day Saint temples.

comment How many wives did Joseph Smith Jr. have in his lifetime?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is more about history than it is Christianity or Christian belief.

comment Do we have any proof? I'm worried
Look at some of the related questions on the side. This question as it currently is may get closed since we don't give personal advice here, but I think the scriptures basically say just keep the faith, regardless of what others say.

comment Why did Jesus have to leave for the Holy Spirit to come?
Okay, so it doesn't use the word go, but it certainly discusses why the Holy Ghost wasn't present until Jesus was resurrected, or went.

@Rick What do you mean? One paragraph is pretty concise, and the source is authoritative (it was compiled by credentialed scholars).

comment How do Mormon missionaries learn foreign languages so quickly?
Thanks for the answer! Just so you know, I updated my post to include a question on the LDS belief about the gift of tongues. You're welcome to comment on that in your answer, or I'll still accept this as-is!

Added gift of tongues question as an after-thought
