I spent many years in Utah, in Utah county in fact. (Probably 90% LDS) I have many Mormon friends. Even attended some High priest dinners lol. It was an interesting experience to be one of the few (very few) non Mormons in my neighborhood. It was a good experience but had it?s issues. Looking back it was a strange time.
You feel that only believer can talk about God's word. I would say that telling someone they can't do something but others can...that is not really nice.
I'm getting quite old and I have already lived longer than two of my brothers, mother and father who all died quite young. Death comes early in my family. I look forward to dying and discuss this with my wife quite often. My wife worked in a nursing home for much of her career and witnessed many people dying. She has many interesting stories of people repenting of their sins so they can go and be with the Lord. One man's story stands out to me because he knew he was going to Hell and was content to allow the clock to run out on his worthless life. He was actually determined to accept what he deserved. My wife was known as "The Christian Nurse" and this man's wife asked by wife to talk to him and see if she could get him to reconsider his fate. So she did. She started talking to him about Christ and this man was no fool he knew what my wife was about so he started coughing out loud to shut her up. Well my wife is no fool either and knew what he was trying to do so...?. she started telling him a very interesting story to get him to listen to her and it worked. He stopped coughing and started listening to her story. She led her interesting story into talking about Christ and the consequences that he was about to face. (He had terminal cancer and died about 7 days after he arrived at my wife's nursing home). By the time my wife was done drawing him a picture of what eternity in Hell would be like, he decided going to Hell wasn't for him. He repented and the following day he died.
The microbes will kill you faster than they will us -- they have a taste for atheists and fools. Oh, I repeat myself.
It's only stupid to you because you assume absurdity.
But the High Priest did. In fact the High Priest loved and trusted Paul that he sent him when he was Saul to kill all the Christians. So he would remember Saul/Paul and could easily have put a hit on him for blasphemy.
Waiting til Monday to be sure.
That's true lol

You and I don't always agree on everything but we always are respectful. That's the difference between this channel and others. Oh speaking of...what do you think of Greta Van Fleet? Thought I'd ask since we both share musical tastes.
My marriage is a good one. We have a ton of fun together.
?Have you considered that system of holy lies and pious frauds that has raged and triumphed for 1,500 years??
All but ?journalist?
The nature of the event makes it different because the people getting married are gay.
If I knew the answer to that, I'd be a very powerful man indeed. I might even be a god myself. "As man is, God once was. As God is, man may become."
That was a list of things that are different about those schools that might possibly contribute to the lower rate of school shootings being committed by those students. Did you say the list was silly because you feel it suggests lack of religion causes school shootings or because you have a strong argument that there are other differences that more likely account for the lower rate of school shootings?
I'd go as far as 500.
Fine. Still a tautology.

I did not make that claim. I dare you to find the quote or any utterance close to it.
