Marker and colored pencil on paper. Created in Phoenix International Airport after a flight from Reno. Had just had an hour long discussion about the old and new testaments with a very nice little old lady from the LDS church in Reno. She waited until final approach to inform me about her being LDS – which was very apparent some 5-10 minutes into the conversation. She then proceeded to give me the quick run-down on her dogma – to which I listened politely albeit with reservation. I just cannot understand why someone who loves God, would attempt to convince someone else who loves God to look into something else unless the person had asked. I did not ask, nor did I want to even go there. She gave me some cards and invited me to read the book of M. I told her I had read the book of Nephi, and couldn’t get over the “and it came to pass” practically every sentence. She didn’t listen to my question or address it – instead she took me along the script, and told me about the patriarch j.smith. I have only one thing to say to members of the M church – please read and understand the old and new testaments prior to trying to convert born-again Christians by telling them about a “newer” revelation from God. The older revelations were not broke, and even if j.smith was right about church apostasy or some other garbage, Gods Word remained unchanged -> Y’all have some missing golden plates while we have something like 26,000 source documents, as well as archeological records, geological records and non-biblical histories which mention Biblical events from other points of view. You might even say, we Christians have most of recorded history.
The Holy Spirit is both comforter and teacher.
There is only one capable of teaching us about God... and that one is God.
