Hello! @Dave L and I have been discussing whether there is an exception for divorce today, and we decided to continue the discussion on a public thread. In Matthew 19:1-6, Jesus is asked whether a man can divorce his wife for just any reason, and He explains this isn't the case because in the Book of Genesis, marriage is taught to be where God joins the two together. In verse 7, the Pharisees reply that Moses commanded a divorce certificate, but Jesus responds in verse 8 that it was permitted due to the hardness of their hearts, not because it was good; instead, Jesus endorses the way it was at the beginning. He then says in Matthew 19:9 not to divorce one's wife and marry another except for sexual immorality/fornication, as doing so...
And not 1830's American English?
I have read the "rock in the hat" story.
There is a difference between 1769 King James English and 1830's American English. If JS was really "seeing" a "translation" in the hat - what was the purpose of him seeing this outdated English?
My theory is that the whole "translation" stuff is false; that JS made it sound like the KJV so it would "sound holy" - "sound like the Bible" etc.
My purpose is to create awareness among Nicene Christians of how absurd the alleged "translation" process is. If the handful of Mormons here can offer any explanation which will show why the BOM came to be in the language of King James English rather than the 1830's American English, let it come.
I have learned much since...
I have been trying to study this for the longest time and I just can't seem to come to peace with any position. I want to make sure the position is correct and not just go by what I would prefer (which would be pre-trib of course, though it would be cool to see the events of Revelation play out). I would love to hear arguments from both sides even though I heard most of them and still can't come to a conclusion that satisfies my conscience. With the post-trib side, it usually denies dispensationalism and that the church replaced Israel which I do not agree with. Yet with the pre-trib side, it seems as if I need to do a lot of mental gymnastics around the scriptures to prove it. I couldn't really find a resting place on either camp so...

The Father`s Plans.
God the Father told His Son to wait at His right hand till He brought His enemies to His footstool.
`The LORD (Father) said to my Lord (Son) “Sit at my right hand till I make your enemies your footstool.” (Ps. 110: 1)
Thus when we see the Lord being given the scroll by the Father I see this as the Father giving the nations (His enemies) to His Son to be judged. The Father says -
“Ask of me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron;..” (Ps. 2: 8 & 9)
The nations consider that they control their own affairs and that they are the sole arbiter of their destiny. But Satan and the nations however do not have the final...
Does the Hell/ECT Doctrine Hold Up to Scrutiny?
Most folks listen to their priest/preacher/minister and also read their Bibles, and most of the time they hear or see “Hell” mentioned, and accept it as a given, in a prima facie sense. I ask you, however, is it so? Does this word and concept belong in the Bible? Does it really belong in t,he theology of so many churches? Let’s dig down into the “infernum” of our subject, “infernum” simply meaning originally that which is below...or simply underground.
