Conflicting views exist about when Jesus appeared to his New World disciples. Did he appear directly after his ascension to the Father? Some believe that his appearance followed the forty days with his disciples in Palestine, while others believe that an entire year had passed after the resurrection when he appeared in the Americas.

Some interesting words on the concept of time and how it affects us.
Well, it’s not technically a horoscope, but if anyone is curious about the future of any greedy, secret groups seeking to destroy any kind of government that grants liberty to the people, then here is a look at some history that they will and are repeating.
The plot seems to thicken more and more, it’s very exciting to watch it all unfold.
This phrase occurs only in the Book of Mormon but it has always drawn my interest as to what it could mean. I’ve studied it for quite a while and would like to share a little of what I have found thus far.
The plot thickens in the story of these lead plates. Are they real? Are they fakes? More evidence on both sides of the argument.
A group of 70 or so “books”, each with between five and 15 lead leaves bound by lead rings, was apparently discovered in a remote arid valley in northern Jordan somewhere between 2005 and 2007 – but are they real or a well-crafted hoax?
The word “meek” as used in scripture seems to have a lot of importance placed on it, yet in modern society I am used to hearing the word meek used in conjunction with “weak”. So where is the disconnect?
There’s always been a big debate around the”Fluoride” that is dumped into our water supplies. You are not supposed to ingest it; check the back of your toothpaste tube. Yet we dump it into our water supply, we drink it and bathe in it – why?
Third times the charm, three strikes and you’re out, three-part harmony…three is all around us, it gives us a frame of reference and is connected to the holy and divine as it represents stability and completeness. Read about some of the most intriguing characteristics of the number three.
Matthew B. Brown wrote an article on TempleStudy comparing the general ideas behind ancient Israelite and Latter-day Saint ceremonial temple clothing. It’s a short but informative read.
What do the seven simple notes that make up the diatonic scale happen to do with the universe? Well, take a look and see for yourself, you’ll probably be as astounded as I was to learn the connection.
Two is probably one of the most amazing numbers when you consider all that it is connected to. This number is connected to some of the most important doctrines and principles like creation, opposition, witnesses and more!
This will be the first in a series of posts exploring basic archetypal symbols and their meaning within a doctrinal context. This first post will focus on the number one and some of it’s many meanings.
I’ve been reading and enjoying Thomas Paine’s “Rights of Man” and pulled a few great quotes on natural and civil rights – good stuff.
I’ve noticed a connection between the familiar “all-seeing-eye” symbol that adorns everything from our money, to occult and Masonic imagery and the Salt Lake Temple. All this aside, there’s another connection that I find far more fascinating.
In 1972, a monumental project was initiated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to publish an LDS edition of the King James Bible.
We have all probably heard some variation of the idea that the constitution will one day “hang by a thread”. What is that last thread and how will we know if it has snapped or not? Here is something to consider…
This talk was always very inspiring to me and is pretty much a call to action to all LDS artists to produce greatness in the arts with the gifts of the restoration.
I’m a sucker for OOPARTs; (that’s short for “out of place artifacts”) archaeological artifacts that shouldn’t exist in a certain part of the world but do anyway. Most are frauds but there are a few that the jury seems to be still out on. The decalogue stone is one of these strange artifacts and I got to track it down and visit it.
This is an excerpt taken from the Autobiography of Parley P. Pratt in which his call to the apostleship was recorded. The charge given by Oliver Cowdery to Pratt and the twelve is nothing short of amazing and has always impressed me.
