    Thanks for posting that as apart of this thread, Mike

    Odysseus: When I was stationed in Germany I dated a lady that was mormon.
    I believed at the time, and still do to an extent that we were unequally yoked.
    During the time we dated one of her organs shutdown on her and she ended up in the hospital. I was there with her filling out the paperwork because I "spreckins ze dutche kleina"(can't spell it worth a flip anymore though) and not 4 hours of her being there she had english speaking mormon missionaries at her side. I don't even know how they found out she was in there that fast. I admired the care and attention they showed to a fellow mormon and to me as well. I think alot of churches would do well to be as caring for there brothers and sisters as mormons are. Just thought about that and felt like posting it.

    Hi guys,
    I just corrected a few copying errors as my scanner was reading from a photocopied hand out!

    Aaron, you may want to copy it again, but you should have the original..!

    Any thoughts about the teaching notes Guys?
    Best Regards

    ummm I have been going to Catholic School my whole life. In fact I go to a Jesuit University. So I am familiar with religious teachings pretty much.

    There is some subordination in relation,not in nature.

    I think this is quit eloquent as it is cohesive.
    What do I think of it? I think you need to email the rest of it before I chew this bit off the leather!!! Great study, can't get enough.

    If anyones interested Dr. John McAurthor has two books " The Gospel according to Jesus", and " The Gospel according to the apostles" that really take a concise look at well....the gospels. Again thanks Mike.

    Hi God's Garden,
    That was just one module from an 88 module course. Its a fair bit of study.. I would contact the people who run it to see if they can supply you notes or an equivalent in the US..! It took a while to scan then into word format!
    Best Regards

    Noah, Mike, etc

    Your stance toward Aaron appears somewhat shaky.
    From Noah:

    Unless you are a full-on 6 day, young earth creationist Christian that takes every word in the Bible literally (which I think is virtually impossible anyway as it contradicts itself so many times) then by your own definition you aren't a "proper" Christian.
    By agreeing that some of the stories in the Bible are parables, or are not meant to be taken literally, you are already applying an interpretation of the bible that has been decided by someone that was not there when it was written.
    I am not making any statement about whether Aaron's beliefs are more valid than yours but what you are, in effect, saying is that just because Aaron's church's interpretation isn't in agreeance with the interpretation of the people that you hang out with, or even with what might be percieved as being the majority of people in the world, his interpretation is wrong and he's not a Christian.

    As I understand it, Jesus himself was in the minority in his time and warned people that following what is popularly accepted as being correct is not always the right way?

    Troy, oftentimes it is not a matter of interpretation. There are parts of the Book of Mormon that contradict the Bible. Also, there are realistic interpretations, and then there are interpretations that are really stretched and make little sense.
