I like to make programs and devices smarter and easier to use. I experiment with new, brilliant interface concepts, data structures, and algorithms. I'm a programmer, web developer, and a Mormon.

comment Are tithes allowed to be food items in the Mormon church?
@Anonymous Well, anyone gets "free access" to the Mormon church. But how you determine what to tithe is a personal matter. If you have an increase, it should get tithed. It gets complicated quick though if you start enumerating what should and shouldn't be tithed. (Tithing is a higher law than the Law of Moses, which would have enumerated.)

@Anonymous Typically, if you're not generating income, you do not owe tithing. Likewise, full-time missionaries do not pay tithing while they are serving.

comment According to the LDS church, why was Jesus Christ born when he was born?
@Bye Looks like the term was first used in the Book of Moses in LDS canon, followed by a more modern use in Doctrine and Covenants.

comment Why did Christ need to be the first person to be resurrected?
Resurrection by definition is to rise to die no more. To rise to die again is revival. Maybe it depends on the denomination or dictionary or translation you use.

@khanahk He was the first to be resurrected as the widow's son was revived, but died again before being resurrected.

Don't take it personally. It's what makes a good, supported answer on Stack Exchange sites.

You tagged this question lds; any particular reason why? Are you looking for an LDS-centric answer?

comment Why did Christ need to be the first person to be resurrected?
Welcome to Christianity.SE! This is a good first answer, but could you cite some sources to back it up or for further reading? Also, even though the question isn't currently clear about why, it is tagged lds, and this answer doesn't cover the LDS perspective specifically. It might be something to consider.

@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.
