The purpose of this site is to help one another grow “grace for grace” as the scriptures suggest; line upon line and precept on precept through the wisdom and love that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ impart to us through his Holy Spirit. (see Isaiah 28: 9-13; Doctrine and Covenants 98: 12; and 2 Nephi 28:30) I will share insights gained through scripture study, church, and other means the Holy Spirit imparts to me. Although I realize that God speaks to us all in different ways and in accordance to what we are willing to receive, it is my hope that all who frequent this site will find it to be uplifting and at the very least helpful in providing a different perspective to consider.
There is an excellent quote by Joseph Smith that fits nicely in what I feel the purpose of this site is:
“…If I esteem mankind to be in error, shall I bear down on them? No. I will lift them up, and in their own way too, if I cannot persuade them my way is better. I will not seek to compel any man to believe as I do, only by force or reasoning, for truth will cut its own way. Do you believe Jesus Christ and the gospel of salvation which he revealed? So do I. Christians should cease wrangling and contending with each other, and cultivate the principles of union and friendship. I am just as ready to die defending the rights of a Presbyterian, a Baptist, or a good man of any other denomination.” –Sermon, 1843 (History of the Church, 5:498–99)
I firmly believe that our Heavenly Father has endowed us all as His children with certain gifts and talents and I invite all to share and display these gifts and communications received in an open format on this site. It is my hope that people of all faiths can frequent this site and share insights that will help us grow and cultivate principles of union and friendship, as Joseph Smith suggests.
That being said, if the discussion leads to topics and discussions that are off topic I will delete them.
May we all grow “grace for grace” and closer to our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ is my hope.
