Donate if you like my work - it really does help.

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 Does the New Testament have any mention of Kolob and if not, how come?
@rpeg I suppose I'm implicitly comparing the direct relevance to our salvation of the doctrine contained in the New Testament to that of the less-directly-relevant topic of Kolob, which I think we all agree a priori, is one of the deeper mysteries of God. Perhaps I can revise my paragraph to make that comparison more clear.

comment Since Mormonism allows for humans to become gods in the afterlife, does this mean it is polytheistic?
That makes sense, since most active Latter-day Saints would probably be startled by the idea of "getting your own planet" and only the men having that option. I think the topic you're looking for is exaltation. Hope that helps.

And aside, becoming "a god of their own planet (only men though)" is all wrong. Where have you been doing your research? Do you have a valid LDS citation for that?

@curiousdannii I see what you mean. I think its lack of mention goes both ways, depending on what you want to validate. I tried to show that in my answer below.

@curiousdannii There's lots of things that exist that aren't mentioned in the Bible.

@curiousdannii I don't think that has anything to do with the question, though...

comment Which Mormon doctrines does the Bible accually teach against?
@Nelson Hm, I understand now the context of your question, but it's still borderline opinion-based. Note that a very similar, in fact, nearly duplicate, question was asked over two years ago and was closed and locked: What are the main points of Mormons' teaching that this group of people consider contradictory to the Bible? -- So even if this question isn't opinion-based, it's been asked before I think. (But I don't blame you for not having seen it.)

comment Has the gospel been “preached to all nations”?
@77Clash That's not how this site works. You up-vote answers that are correct, thorough, sourced with reliable citations, and which actually answer the question being asked, even if you don't agree with them.

comment Which Mormon doctrines does the Bible accually teach against?
I would hope so too, but the question is inherently biased. It's different from something like "What is the Biblical basis for Mormonism?" -- instead, you're basically asking, "What is wrong with Mormonism according to the Bible?" which pits Mormonism against the Bible. Since Mormons believe in the Bible, it would not be a logical conclusion that the Bible "vehemently teaches against" Mormon doctrine.

Why? This question won't cultivate constructive answers.

comment Has the gospel been “preached to all nations”?
@77Clash "they" the nations, or "they" each indivudal person? This question will be hard to answer. As it currently stands, it invites more opinions than cold, hard fact or doctrine.
