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 Do any of the Mormon doctrines that cannot be found in the Bible come from the Book of Mormon?
When you say "come from" do you mean "occur in" or "originate from"? The first is easy to answer; the second, more difficult. (Also, see this answer for a list of sources of doctrine in the LDS faith.)

Clarifying that the Bible does mention most of the doctrines, but doesn't expound on some of them

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.)

comment Are tithes allowed to be food items in the Mormon church?
@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.
