Too many chili burritos for lunch?

As a reformed Calvinist I tend not to be too concerned by digestive issues and would prefer to maintain a dignity giving rise to prophetic intentions when addressing the LDS. Perhaps you may want to watch before jumping in with mere humour?

From whence did the burning of the heart witness derive its origin?
Hi Rhomphaeam:

Probably from the Biblical witness:

Luke 24:31-32---King James Version
31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

Hi Rhomphaeam:

Probably from the Biblical witness:

Luke 24:31-32---King James Version
31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

“But, behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right. But if it be not right you shall have no such feelings, but you shall have a stupor of thought that shall cause you to forget the thing which is wrong; therefore, you cannot write that which is sacred save it be given you from me.” (D&C 9:8-9)

Are you a Mormon @dberrie2020 ?

THE DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS​

SECTION 1

Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, on November 1, 1831, during a special conference of elders of the Church, held at Hiram, Ohio. Many revelations had been received from the Lord prior to this time, and the compilation of these for publication in book form was one of the principal subjects passed upon at the conference. This section constitutes the Lord’s preface to the doctrines, covenants, and commandments given in this dispensation.

1–7, The voice of warning is to all people; 8–16, Apostasy and wickedness precede the Second Coming; 17–23, Joseph Smith is called to restore to earth the Lord’s truths and powers; 24–33, The Book of Mormon is brought forth and the true Church is established; 34–36, Peace will be taken from the earth; 37–39, Search these commandments.

1 Hearken, O ye people of my church, saith the voice of him who dwells on high, and whose eyes are upon all men; yea, verily I say: Hearken ye people from afar; and ye that are upon the islands of the sea, listen together.
2 For verily the voice of the Lord is unto all men, and there is none to escape; and there is no eye that shall not see, neither ear that shall not hear, neither heart that shall not be penetrated.
3 And the rebellious shall be pierced with much sorrow; for their iniquities shall be spoken upon the housetops, and their secret acts shall be revealed.
4 And the voice of warning shall be unto all people, by the mouths of my disciples, whom I have chosen in these last days.
5 And they shall ago forth and none shall stay them, for I the Lord have commanded them.
6 Behold, this is mine authority, and the authority of my servants, and my preface unto the book of my commandments, which I have given them to publish unto you, O habitants of the earth.
7 Wherefore, fear and tremble, O ye people, for what I the Lord have decreed in them shall be fulfilled.

Then:

SECTION 9

8 But, behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right.

9 But if it be not right you shall have no such feelings, but you shall have a stupor of thought that shall cause you to forget the thing which is wrong; therefore, you cannot write that which is sacred save it be given you from me.

10 Now, if you had known this you could have translated; nevertheless, it is not expedient that you should translate now.

11 Behold, it was expedient when you commenced; but you feared, and the time is past, and it is not expedient now;

12 For, do you not behold that I have given unto my servant Joseph sufficient strength, whereby it is made up? And neither of you have I condemned.

13 Do this thing which I have commanded you, and you shall prosper. Be faithful, and yield to no temptation.

14 Stand fast in the work wherewith I have called you, and a hair of your head shall not be lost, and you shall be lifted up at the last day. Amen.

Could scarcely be more important!
So I asked!


Which precedes authority? The revelation giving meaning to the rebuke of a scribe, being prophetic utterance? Or the Scriptures giving proof of prophetic meanings now applied to doctrine?

That provides a little context. It comes from the Spirit.

Again. Questions without context aren't going to get very good answers. Some here may try to read your mind but without context, this is like fly fishing without a pole.

I'm still not seeing it.

Hi, good to see you in this forum. As BOJ has said, you need to provide some context for that question so it can be properly related to and addressed. In connection to what topic or issues are you asking that question? Where did you hear that expression before, to want to ask that question?

Again, your question is too ambiguous and unclear to be answered.

Your question still lacks clarity. I am still unable to understand your question to be able to answer it.

Hi, good to see you in this forum. As BOJ has said, you need to provide some context for that question so it can be properly related to and addressed. In connection to what topic or issues are you asking that question? Where did you hear that expression before, to want to ask that question?

I opened this question with your knowledge and with your understanding. I asked that same question in another thread and you advised me to come to this sub forum and ask my question. Now you say that you do not understand the question or understand the context. Are you a Mormon or not?
