Having read through parts of Handbook 1 on various occasions, I can verify this answer.

comment What is the difference between an Apostate and an Antichrist?
Yes? An apostate is someone who has departed from the church, and an antichrist is one who rejects or counterfeits Jesus or His Gospel. One can leave the church without being antichrist...

comment What are Mormons allowed to discuss about the temple, when not inside the temple?
Typically, asking "what are we allowed to do" in the scope of Christianity is opinion-based, if not off-topic. It's very close to "Is X a sin?" questions.

I'm surprised at how detailed and well-cited the Wikipedia article for Handbook is. It may be of some interest.

comment Why was the gift of the Holy Ghost not operative during Christ's mortal ministry according to LDS doctrine?
Not likely, as the Bible Dictionary was written in the latter days. And only about 30 years ago, at that.

comment Mormons, for how long can I be forgiven of all my sins?
@ColeTrumbo There isn't a universal answer to "How long can a person go without sinning?".

comment Are prospective Mormons allowed to be baptized during their menstruation periods?
I'm confused; (living) converts aren't baptized in temples. And what does this have to do with Mormonism specifically?

comment What is the basis for the LDS belief that religious truth is confirmed by what you feel?
So you don't feel love or joy? Don't you feel goodness in or for something or maybe gentleness from a person? I'm glad you see what I mean about peace, though, since that is probably the most important one of them. (Matt's opinion: only God can give us peace; it is not something that can be manufactured. And peace is probably the most common feeling, from my experience in talking with lots of people about it, when learning spiritual truth.)

comment What is the basis for the LDS belief that religious truth is confirmed by what you feel?
@alvoutila In the specific video you linked to, Elder Ballard is saying that the truth of the Book of Mormon cannot be proven scientifically; the evidence is personal and spiritual, and it comes through the Holy Spirit.

comment What is the basis for the LDS belief that religious truth is confirmed by what you feel?
@curiousdannii: I'm not sure I understand your question; Galatians says pretty clearly that the feelings are the fruit of the Spirit. And I know Elder Ballard is talking about spiritual fruit because he's talking about prayers being answered in connection with seeking confirmation of spiritual/religious truth. Though feelings are not the only way God answers prayers, that is typically how prayers about spiritual truth are answered (Moroni 10:4).

+1 for the extra perspective. I'm not sure the question has a hard-and-fast answer anyway.
