comment What is the origin of the Mormon Temple Ceremony and how has it changed throughout the years?
One note regarding possible basing on Masonic ceremony. The Masonic ceremony has its roots in King Solomon's Temple. So it is conceivable that the LDS Endowment is a restoration of the same ceremony that the Masonic ceremony is based on, but not actually based on the Masonic ceremony. This would make the two ceremonies siblings or cousins.

comment What is the Bible and Christian view on Astrology?
The Magi observed a prophesied sign of Christ's birth: A new start appearing. They did not use the movement of the starts and planets to predict the future. I think that is a big difference, but I appreciate the point of view.

comment Is the commandment to multiply, and replenish the earth in effect today?
@Richard: We are by nature imperfect, but are still commanded to do our best to follow the commandments. To abandon all commandments we cannot successfully fulfill would be to turn away from Christ completely.

Curious what you base your assumption on for the completion of the commandment.

comment Is it appropriate to capitalize pronouns referring to Jesus Christ?
Glad to hear I am not the only one. I've noticed likewise in other official writings.

comment Does Joseph Smith fail the test of a prophet?
Jesus Christ prophesied that He will come again. He hasn't yet, does that mean He fails the test? I would say no, but by your literal interpretation it would seem contrary. I am not voting to close the question, but I wonder if your premise may be too literal, which may indicate a contentious intention.

comment Does Joseph Smith fail the test of a prophet?
So is this a contentious question looking to disprove Joseph Smith as a prophet, or are you looking to accept him as a prophet based on the results of this test? To me this test is just for specific things the prophet has said, not if they are a prophet or not.
