Comment on D&C Lesson 20 (Three Degrees of Glory) by AnonGDTeacher http://godlessdoctrine.com/dc-lesson-20/#comment-861 Mon, 19 Jun 2017 18:41:52 +0000 http://godlessdoctrine.com/?p=1281#comment-861 Holy cow, I had no idea about the flying man. That is fabulous. I wish I’d known that before teaching the lesson last Sunday — I’ll be sure to check up before the next interesting lesson I teach.
(signed, an anon GD teacher who is trying to bring some of this stuff up in SS — more in a faith-promoting way than you are addressing it here, to be honest, but in the general pursuit of truth and making people aware that a. this stuff is out there and b. if they know about it and are sitting there in SS thinking they’re the only crazy one… they’re not)

Comment on D&C Lesson 19 (Plan of Salvation) by Travis Gower http://godlessdoctrine.com/dc-lesson-19/#comment-850 Sun, 04 Jun 2017 16:38:35 +0000 http://godlessdoctrine.com/?p=1275#comment-850 Perhaps if we had the full transcript, we would read someone point out that Jesus/Jehovah managed to become like Elohim before mortality, that is, before obtaining a body. Also, that the Holy Ghost attained godhood and STILL has no body. All of which calls into question the usual explanations about neeeeding a “physical body” to “be like God”.

If you understand this, you have the plan of Salvation, as plagiarized by Joseph Smith. Perhaps you cover this elsewhere. See also: Did Emanuel Swedenborg Influence LDS Doctrine? Craig Miller. http://craigwmiller.tripod.com/interest.htm#_ftn28

Thank you so much.

About the psychic stuff in sections 15 and 16, it didn’t matter what Joseph Smith said, as long as it was calling the Whitmers out to being righteous. Because, what were they going to do? Deny it? “Well actually Joseph, the thing that would be of most worth to me is a new plow and $10,000.” Any worldly thing would make them look like selfish jerks. So once again, Joseph Smith wins no matter what.
