Moroni : 7 - Part 1
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
 I am SO glad that Moroni kept writing.  Can you imagine the Book of mormon without the last 4 chapters of Moroni?  The depth of explanation of faith, hope, and charity?  The blessing of Babies?  The promise and invitation to read the Book of Mormon, used by all missionaries?  Yeah...  There are some gems here in ...

Moroni : 6

 This was a good chapter.  Starts out stating that worthiness is necessary in order for baptism into the Lord's church: bringing forth fruit of worthiness (not entirely sure what this means, specifically) having a broken heart and contrite spirit, showing a witness of true repentance taking upon yourself the name of Chris...

 Another very short one.  If I understand it correctly, the prayer states that by partaking of the water, we are covenanting (or "witnessing") unto God that we will always remember Christ.  I believe a few chapters ago, I wrote quite an entry on the importance of remembering.  As evidenced by the inclusion of it in a w...

 I think these chapters are too short.  Interesting to note that the scripture says that the elder or priest would "kneel down with the church", yet the congregation doesn't kneel down today. Also interesting to note that the sacrament prayer is one of very few prayers which have to be said verbatim, and hasn't changed at all ...

 Moroni 3.  This one isn't speaking much to me, but I did find it interesting that only after they prayed, the disciples excercised their priesthood to ordain offices in the priesthood.  ...and that it was done through endurance through faith on the name of Christ.  Enduring to the end has always been pretty much the last key to...

So, these chapters are pretty small, but for some reason, I think there's quite a significance in this one.  Not quite sure if I've found it yet, but the reason I think this, is - originally, this text was not included in the scripture - and it is Christ talking himself.  I wonder why Moroni felt the need, or was inspired to include it?&n...

 Holy cow.  I only have 10 more chapters to go, and I'll finish the goal I set 3 years ago, to read and write about each chapter in the Book of Mormon.  I'm not sure why, but when I just realized that (like 1 minute ago), it was kind of surreal for me.  Anyway...  Here goes. Moroni 1. Moroni had to be one of the most tr...

Ether : 15

 What a horrible end to this story.  Poor Coriantumr.  Saw his situation with vivid clarity after it was too late, and rather than give up his life, he watched (which what must have been a horror show) everything Ether had told him come to life:  The complete destruction of his people, leaving him alone.  I can't imagine th...

 So, this chapter was a bit like the last, only worse.  Blood, carnage, war, and death throughout pretty much every verse. One of the beginning verses, though, caught my attention.  The one that says that people couldn't go to sleep at night, without losing their treasures, even to the point where they had to sleep with weapons to ...

 So, this chapter, I hate to say it, wasn't very inspiring to me. I'm not sure if it's the state I'm in, or the chapter itself, or both, but there wasn't too much inspiration going on. I did, however, 3 years ago, begin the journey of reading and writing about each and every chapter in the Book of Mormon, so I've gotta write something, if I ...

It's about 10 minutes before I have to leave to go to the airport to fly to Wisconsin to meet my new boss and co-workers.  The situation at Nature's Way is definitely changing. Right now, I just wanted to write down some thoughts and feelings to see how they would contrast against what I think after-the-fact. Right now, quite honestly, I d...

I've been using Comcast for my personal Internet connection now for about 5 years.  Personally, I think they do a great job.  My connection goes down on average about once per year, and it just works really well with my lifestyle.  I think the price is a bit much, but having a steady Internet connection means a lot to me, so I keep i...

Hi there!  I'm PoeticIntensity I guess this is my journal...  still. I started journaling when I was 14, in 1990, as a new years resolution.  I had no idea then just how much I would get into journaling. It took me 12 years, off and on, to transcode all of my 3000+ journal entries, and then put them into a database.  I ...

Two weeks later, I add some vocals and effects, and this is what you've got. I hope you like it.  (press the ...

*sigh* As programming techniques become more and more complex, and the programmers continue to be just as, or more, diversified, companies who insist on being the industry standard while tossing away organizations such as the W3C, make life as a web developer increasingly difficult. If that didn't make much sense, let me rephrase:  Micro...
