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 In Matthew 5:25 what does it mean to be in the way with our adversary?
I think he just cross-ref'ed the Book of Mormon for added context to help the answerer. I'm not sure that the LDS answer would be any different than any general Christian's answer.

Why is this tagged lds?

comment According to LDS doctrine, what is the source of God's power?
@ShemSeger Do you mean God the Father or God the Son? (As you probably know, in LDS doctrine, the two are distinct. Interestingly, sometimes that distinction isn't significant because the Father and Son are so perfectly unified. However, so far, my preliminary research makes it clear that the Son got all power from the Father, so in this question, the clarification is probably important.)

comment How are spirits born?
You tagged this question lds and if that's the perspective you're looking for, I assume the answer will be "It hasn't been revealed." LDS doctrine isn't heavily concerned with mysteries that hardly pertain to the salvation of souls.

comment Where do Mormons believe heaven is right now?
This is indeed one correct way to interpret the word "heaven" in Mormon doctrine. Also +1 for credible sources.

@FMShyanguya That article is not only highly accusatory and questionable (poorly researched), it has nothing to do with the question at hand.

@fredsbend Oh yeah, I know. I've been around a while. It's not the end of the world if he doesn't see it in that case, so I didn't bother. Thanks!

comment In Mormonism, how is the doctrine of Adam & Eve inability to have children prior to the Fall explained?
Also, I just noticed that it seems that people--myself included--tend to say that Adam and Eve couldn't have children in the garden, yet the Book of Mormon says wouldn't have had children. Does anyone know of any place in scripture that actually says they couldn't have children there? Maybe there's another simple explanation that I'm overlooking.
