So the next stop on the bus ride to the second coming is one that got me thinking due to the first paragraph. I’ll quote a few bits of it so you can see how my train of thought proceeded.

When the Spirit stops working with the wicked, they lose their ability to think rationally...Righteous people are seen as their enemies, and a threat to personal freedom and independence, a threat to the exercising of their agencyevil deeds and cruelty become routine…[emphasis added by me]

By way of introduction

Posted November 2nd, 2009 in Introductions by LDSguy

The other day I responded to a tweet by @helamansarmy in which he asked for someone’s take on Moses 2:20. The resulting conversation can be seen here. In the resulting conversation back and forth, Helaman asked if I’d like to become a contributor on this blog. Having wondering how I could turn my personal blog into something with more of a focus as this blog has, I jumped at the chance. So here I am, the newest contributor to Helaman’s Army. I look forward to working in collaboration with Helaman and sharing thoughts, experiences and testimonies with other like-minded latter-day saints out in the blogosphere.

And I, God, said: Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl which may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

It struck me, that this reads as if God is saying the waters bring forth live creatures – including birds. Now I know the LDS church takes no official position on evolution, it got me thinking – strictly subjectively about this.
