"O God, the Eternal Father, we ask thee, in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this wine to the souls of all those who drink of it, that they may do it in remembrance of the blood of thy Son, which was *shed* [or, perhaps, shed forth] for them; that they may witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they do always remember him, that they may have his Spirit to be with them. Amen." (Moroni 6)
"And the angel said unto me: Behold the Lamb of God, yea, even the Son ...

And this is life eternal, that they might know God. (John 17:3)
I want to start this article of Knowing by adding this parable I read a year or two ago:
Imagine that you are in a gigantic mall where there are hundreds of movie theaters. You look around to see what s playing, and you notice a movie that has your name. Amazing! You go inside the theater, and it s empty except for one person. Very quietly, trying not to interrupt, you sit behind that person, who doesn t even no...

There is a parental saying that is sometimes heard when a child is about to do something risky or naughty. The parent, with one hand on his or her hip and a pointing finger wagging in the child's face, angrily declares, "If you get hurt, don't come crying to me!"
Another father said this: "Run barefoot if you feel you must, but if you cut your foot open, please come crying to me."
The saying actually came from the same father at different times. (Quoted from Joyce Kinmont)

The last promise of D&C 93:1-2 is that those souls who would rise up would know that I am; And that I am the true light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world;
When Enoch spoke with God, he seemed a little confused as to why heaven would weep over his vision of the future flood seeing that God is just. God revealed something about himself that opened Enoch s heart to swell wide as eternity and understand this great and last promise.
I believe at that moment Enoch understood...

This is a continuation of Broken, Part 1.
I have been praying to know why we would flee from God who is Love when we didn't do what was required in mortality. Why wouldn't we want to be with that being regardless? This is the answer I received. I somewhat understood it mechanically already, but I understand it better now, personally. It is impossible to convey fully the little I understood, but this is an attempt.
God declared to the people in the New World that he no more wanted s...

Two days ago on Thursday July 9th, we watched to some of Todd White s videos. One of the things he said struck me.
If we would press into this and see the reality of Jesus on the tree; see He was crucified for my offenses, right? But before. Anyone that saw the movie The Passion , a lot of Christians won t watch it because they re like It s too gross, I can t watch it. You need to watch it, you need to tape your eyelids open because the Bible says that it was much worse than that. I...

Today, I have completed my Alma experience which began February 2015. Today I have been snatched and I want to make a record for my own keeping, for such an experience can never truly be conveyed to another. It is with great difficulty that I try and find the words to begin. I will just give a narrative of the events as I usually do.
Last night we watched some excellent Todd White videos on Youtube and they literally changed my life.
Regarding the sacrament he says:

God is love.
Because God is love, God gives freedom to all. Freedom, and even encouragement of thought, expression, discovery, knowledge, intelligence and experience.
Because God is love, he desires all to be possessors of all that he has. (The glory of God is intelligence, or light and truth.) To gain knowledge by degrees. To accept principles because they believe them and love them. To reject principles so they can gain experience of the happiness or misery of those results, so they can ...
