Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ

All of the prophets, including the Old Testament prophets, according to Jacob in the Book of Mormon testified of Christ. How come only the Book of Mormon prophets were given His name? Was it because they would not have crucified Him? Thank you. T-Rex _________________...

The Telestial Kingdom

The Telestial Kingdom

Dear Gramps, I've heard it said in the Church that those men and women who live together without marriage are living a "Telestial" law. Does this mean that in the final resurrection, those men and women who inherit the Telestial kingdom will be able to co-habitate...

Book of Joseph

Book of Joseph

Joseph Smith has translated the Book of Joseph of Egypt. Why has it not been published? Dan ________________ Dear Dan, You start with a strong assertion that the "Book of Joseph" was translated. If such is the case, I will be greatly edified if you sent me your...

Messiah ben Joseph

Satan and his decisions

Satan and his decisions

Dear Gramps, First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. Many of your replies have helped me gain a greater understanding of various topics, which have proved useful whilst teaching my Sunday school class. I would like to ask...

Atonement

Atonement

Dear Gramps, If a church member lives the majority of their life in a 'lukewarm' fashion (not doing anything real bad, yet not being very spiritually valiant either) will it do that person any good to change their ways for the better since the majority of their life...

Smoking

Smoking

My husband has gone back to smoking after we were sealed in the temple. Just the other day he was upset at me for being upset at his smoking and said “My health is the only good reason I should stop smoking.” How do I come back to him and help him see again the list...

Millenial Question

Millenial Question

Shalom Gramps, You state the following:  " In 1 Cor. 15:50 Apostle Paul revealed that “Flesh and Blood cannot INHERIT the Kingdom of God” – likewise, Jesus declared in Matt. 25:34 that the living SHEEP Saints on His right hand should “Come and INHERIT the Kingdom”...

Angel retrieves gold plates

Angel retrieves gold plates

Where is it recorded in the LDS scriptures that an angel retrieved the gold plates from Joseph Smith? People in the South have said that story sounds suspicious or "fishy". They have no problem believing the parting of the Red Sea or that the Lord opened to view the...

Deliverance and Free Agency

Deliverance and Free Agency

Dear Gramps, If Heavenly Father absolutely will not violate anybody's free agency, then how is he able to deliver people out of bondage? If their captors are absolutely unwilling to yield under any circumstances, are those they keep in bondage completely out of luck?...

Prayer

Prayer

Some say that God does not hear our prayers directly but that our prayers are communicated to Him by angels or deceased family members who have been delegated the task to listen to us. Personally, I don't believe it but would like to know if the church leaders have...

Petition for Healing

Petition for Healing

Dear Gramps, Does it do any good to petition for someone's healing, like from cancer? The scriptures say if they are ordained to live, they will live, and if they are ordained to die, then they will die (D&C 42:48. So if God has already made up His mind on the...
