Donate if you like my work - it really does help.

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 Why were early Mormon leaders so critical of traditional Christianity?
For what it's worth, the accuracy of the transcriptions in The Journal of Discourses is widely disputed. Also, the scene of Christianity was very different back then than it is today.

comment What is the Biblical basis for disbelief in the doctrine of the Trinity?
@StevenDoggart I don't think this is a duplicate, since some Christian faiths believe in 3 separate beings that may each be called God, but do not believe in the Trinity doctrine.

comment According to LDS teaching, Does God have a God?
Artificial bearing, as in you are playing devil's advocate, meaning the circumstances generating the question are not real. Just doesn't bode well for getting good answers.

comment According to LDS teaching, Does God have a God?
I see. Well, questions with only an artificial bearing aren't really considered on topic for this site. One could make up any number of fictional scenarios and ask about them, but such questions are not usually constructive. If you want to know God's reasoning, you should ask Him. I still maintain that it is not necessarily revealed why God's commandments are what they are.

comment According to LDS teaching, why should we worship this God?
I think this and your other question are the same and one should be closed as duplicate. I don't understand how they are different?

@Andrew Even if that defies a fundamental commandment, "no other gods before me?"

That explains why I was so confused.

Did you not read that the footnotes are the work of Church scholars?

comment Are there any archaeological evidences suggesting the existence of the Book of Mormon?
We do know somewhat of other records (see christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/36152/…). If you're asking about things in a museum or something, there is, as far as I know, nothing that is recognized by the LDS Church. But I still maintain that this is a duplicate question (I've linked to 3 others that are essentially the same question.)

Yes, there are written testimonies of 11 other witnesses of the plates. See christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/11895/…. Also, see the Biblical basis for the Book of Mormon: christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/6039/….

comment Are there any archaeological evidences suggesting the existence of the Book of Mormon?
The plates were essentially the private journal of their kings and religious leaders. We see several places in the Book of Mormon where it says that the contents would not be disseminated to their people at that time, and that the book was specifically written for our day.

comment Are there any archaeological evidences suggesting the existence of the Book of Mormon?
Then what would you like to see evidence for, if not the events in the book? The plates themselves? Also, I noticed you edited the title of the question to make yours look less like a duplicate, but I still think it's a duplicate. There are plenty of questions about the origin and fate of the plates upon which the Book of Mormon was written.

comment Was Elohim the Saviour and Redeemer of his world?
@thedarkwanderer I think so. Keep reading. "As the Father had done before? He laid down His life, and took it up the same as His Father had done before." Being laid down, then rising up, is resurrection.
