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 Has the gospel been “preached to all nations”?
Nations like China and Iran still don't have Christianity flowing through them. I would probably suggest it hasn't yet.

comment What attributes does Jesus have from an LDS doctrinal perspective that are different from the Jesus in the Holy Trinity?
Well, partly it's the community's fault for not providing helpful feedback, so I apologize for that. The question, then, is asking if there are differences between LDS beliefs of Jesus and "mainstream" Christianity's beliefs of Jesus, how does that affect His divinity? This answer doesn't really address the question. Instead, you're pinning LDS belief against the Bible, which is contrary to the objective nature of this site. Revise your answer so it is more neutral and on-topic for this question.

4 downvotes and I'm the first to comment? Aren't we supposed to say why the answer is poor quality? Obviously this answer needs help, and I add my downvote, but should we provide feedback in case this is not obvious to some readers?

comment Possible sources of corruption in scripture a problem for creationists?
It can't. And I don't think creationists alone grapple with this issue. Welcome to the site, by the way. Maybe take a moment to revise your question so it is a little clearer and more objective. (A few possible revisions that come to mind, however, have already been asked here. Try looking through the tags to see if your question is already asked and answered.)

comment What is the basis that many mainstream Christian groups justify labeling groups like the Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses as Non Christians?
@DJClayworth Not that I can see. And no need to argue. This answer itches for reliable citations.

@DJClayworth, your post references ZERO sources. I have presented evidence for making the simple change, you have presented none for keeping your post inaccurate (until shown otherwise). As usual, make sure sources are reliable, official, and objective.

comment What is the basis that many mainstream Christian groups justify labeling groups like the Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses as Non Christians?
This is the only answer so far I can up-vote because it answers the question, doesn't take sides, and is the most correct of all of them. Mind if I make a slight edit to the phrase about how Mormons cooperating with other churches is extremely rare?

comment What is the Biblical definition of what makes one a Christian?
@user9200 Well, as a Christian, I do imagine that God would expect us to use our sense and intuition as well. I don't believe God has to command in all things. The definition of a word might not be the most important thing to Him.

Wait a minute... if resurrection is to return to their proper/embodied state, in which they will remain forever after then does that mean that the people in 1-4 never died again? Or are we talking about revival here? Edit: see my other question

comment What is the Biblical definition of what makes one a Christian?
Good question, but I don't think the question will be settled by an appeal to the Bible. If the Bible is your only authoritative source for doctrinal foundation, what do you do when it's not in there?
