Gene Snow replied to Bruce Holt's discussion Do Mormons avoid saying "Jesus"?
"If the protestants do then we do not. They use the cross as a symbol - therefore we do not. They call on Jesus - therefore we do not. They have real music - therefore we do not. It took me several months as a Methodist before I could just use the…"

"An added thought. It was interesting to me that the LDS church actually tried to defend themselves on this one. Usually the apologists just reiterate church history as a response, which is completely inadequate since church history is what's…"

"Wow, never heard the "blacks taking over the church" theory before. That's probably closer to the truth, actually ... they have always been pretty intent on keeping leadership in the hands of professional-type white guys."

FAIR Website answers about Blacks and the Priesthood.

Would someone else please try to hack your way through the FAIR response on the Black ban?It sounds like now they are no longer defending the church but saying that other churches are just as bad.They keep trotting out BRM as the only defense, when he says everything ever said was not done in the full light of the latest word from the prophet. What light is yet to come? The prophet will never lead us astray, even if they later say that he was lying. Brigham Young did not lead us astray he just…See More

Gene Snow replied to Toy Soldier's discussion Has even Grace been hijacked? in the group Exmormon to Christ (Born-again)
"Just a point. Nephi 25:23 says that we are saved by grace after all we can do. While Paul says:Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” Mormons claim that this law is the law of Moses, but Paul is…"

First Contact with Humans and Other Side by Gene Olsen

Yep this is promoting myself.I have recently published two books through an e-book publisher. These are Science Fiction /Fantasy and only about 180 pages each. They are available through Amazon or some of the other internet sites that sell books.They are easy reads fun. My friends all liked them but it would be nice to hear from strangers.It takes a lot of work to finish up a book. You should see what the editors did to my Utah spelling and grammar.GeneFirst Contact with Humansand Other Side See More
