PictureKTKKsquare2.jpgWas Jesus Married?

LDS host: Van Hale.

Summary: I discuss the views of 19th century LDS leaders who argued from three main positions that Jesus was certainly married. I quote from a number of their sermons and writings. While it seems widely believed among Mormons that Jesus was married, there have been clear statements that it is not considered official LDS doctrine. I presented reasons for my personal doubts that Jesus was married. It seems that among Mormons, my view is in the minority. There were a number of participants by phone and email, prompting some interesting dialogue from several perspectives. All argued against my view.

PictureKTKKsquare2.jpgNew Testament Myths 1 (28 Jan 2007)

LDS host: Van Hale.

Summary: I presented information about the sources used by Luke; the writing and canonization of the New Testament; verbal inspiration; the King James Version and discussed with callers the deity of Christ; Joseph Smith’s view of the KJV and German translations; polygamy; and responded to a self-proclaimed prophet who accused me of slandering the KJV. He claims God revealed to him that the KJV was inspired.

Mormon Doctrine:

Mandatory and Forbidden resources_MD.jpg

Summary: For various reasons many insist that there is much mandatory doctrine required of Mormons and much forbidden doctrine. I discuss this, drawing from my personal experience and extensive research over the past 40 years. Using the Adam God theory and Polygamy for examples I present a number of sources which demonstrate that, from its beginning, the LDS Church has had very little official doctrine and almost no mandatory or forbidden doctrine. Participants by phone and email joined in the discussion.

Mormon Doctrine: Mandatory and Forbidden

For various reasons many insist that there is much mandatory doctrine required of Mormons and much forbidden doctrine. Drawing from many sources and such enlightening examples as the Adam God theory and Polygamy, I demonstrate that, from its beginning, the LDS Church has had very little official doctrine and almost no mandatory or forbidden doctrine.
