Tarzan - Strangers Like Me
To continue from yesterdays Tarzan, we shall discuss how we are all alike, even when we can seem strange to others.
"there so much to Learn"
There is much to learn about Life, the Universe, and Everything. However the answer is not 42, the answer is 'The Gospel'.
"It's all so Close, and Yet so Far"
Many people believe in Christ, but they all have their own way of expressing that Belief or Faith. But the Bible says, "One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism". (Ephesians 4:5) But if there is only 'One Way' to return to live with our Heavenly Father, then why are there so many different Denominations?
It is because of the Great Apostasy, or Falling Away. (2 Thessalonians 2:2-3) So all of these Denominations have come so Close to having the Truth in its Fullness, but they are Far enough away that they don't realize it.
There is something Bigger out there. Do you want to Know? Do you want me to Show you?
if ye will awake and arouse your faculties [make an effort],
even to an experiment upon my words,
exercise a particle of faith,
yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe,
let this desire work in you,
even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place
for a portion of my words."
-- Alma 32:27
I can tell you more, and I will show you. But first you must have a Willing Heart.
When Clayton becomes frustrated he makes an excellent point about the Gospel. If we spend all our time on what We want, but it is not the pursuit of Truth and increased Knowledge, which is what the Lord wants, then we are putting our spiritual life at risk. As he states, the 'boat' could arrive any day, and we should ask questions Straight Out, or Without Reservation.
Give a Question in the Comments, or go to LDS.org and MORMON.org for a greater understanding of the Gospel.
