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 According to Mormonism, how does a person get saved?
@Jas3.1 The saving ordinances required for the celestial kingdom are baptism by immersion for the remission of sins and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, just as it it explains in the D&C passage. Also, see Confutus' answer for a re-iteration of the ordinances. Also see this question for more information about ordinances in the LDS church in general.

Come Thou Fount, for some reason, is also not in the LDS hymnbook.

comment Do Michael and Gabriel have resurrected bodies?
We also know that Abraham has a resurrected, exalted body -- so even though the scriptures don't mention Gabriel and Michael by name as being resurrected (that I know of), they most probably have been by now.

comment Is Jesus God, as well as the son of God in LDS?
God is a term that's a bit overloaded. It's a title (lowercase "god"), but can also refer to a person (capitalized "God"), or even the single divine purpose under which all 3 beings are united. So yes, Jesus can be called God. In LDS theology, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are 3 separate, distinct beings, and each one is a god, being a member of the godhead.

comment Why did Mary and Joseph look for an inn?
Am I the only one that finds it unusual that someone would go to a hotel to give birth? Of course society and facilities were different back then, but if that is the basis for the answer to the question, by all means, explain away my ignorance and feel free to answer the question. And if there truly were only 2 options for lodging, that would be important to back up in your answer, since my question obviously does not make that assumption.

comment Why did Mary and Joseph look for an inn?
This is the height of the Roman empire, too, and I'm not sure what life was like in that society at the time, so I thought I'd at least ask. Ultimately, if the answer really is this easy, then post it and collect the 25 rep points. Just thought there would be a little more material/background on the topic.

comment Why did Mary and Joseph look for an inn?
@fredsbend That answer only makes sense assuming that there were only two options: a stable or an inn. Weren't there any other options for childbirth? Even children were born in the village of Bethlehem on occasion, no?

comment What, historically, was the age of accountability for Latter-Day-Saints before D&C 68:27?
To expand on this answer a bit, the age of accountability has always been, simply, the age at which one becomes accountable to the choices they make. The minimum age of 8 was established by revelation as a matter of formality (and wisdom in the Lord, of course). But even today, the age of one's accountability is not necessarily 8. In some cases, individuals may not be accountable until later in their life, if ever, depending on mental handicaps or other similar circumstances.

The "like figure" may also be referring to the immersion in water. Unfortunately there's no way to tell for sure.
