comment Are Christians bound to the laws of their country?
+1 Another great example of obeying God over government is in Daniel Chapter 1, when Daniel asked to be given vegetables and water to eat, so that Daniel and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego wouldn't have to eat from the King's table (which was not Kosher).

comment If God controls our decisions, does this mean we don't have free will?
@user My understanding of God's foreknowledge doesn't include God meddling with our choice. He's simply looking ahead through time (from eternity) and observing our actions in advance. This is a complex topic - you might consider turning your thoughts into a new question to make it easier for others to contribute.

@user I believe God simply foreknew what Pharaoh would do when presented with "the truth". To me, saying that the presentation of "truth" to Pharaoh removed Pharaoh's free will is a bit of a stretch. Pharaoh always had free will, God just knew in advance what his choice would be, and used that knowledge to show His power.

comment What is the difference between man's soul and spirit?
I believe I Corinthians 2:16 is referring to "His spirit" of Ezekiel 36:27, so in that case, the "mind of Christ" would be His spirit in your soul, the center realm, governing outwardly (Matthew 12:34, Luke 6:45). But in different contexts in scripture the word "mind" may refer to either your soul, your spirit, or both together.

comment How do Mormons view the warning in Revelation about adding to the book?
There is also Galatians 1:8, where Paul says, "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."
