Clarice asked this very important question. Since ALL of us feel this at some point, and we have discussed it several times, I would like to hear your answers to this question. I want Clarice to understand that she is not alone in this struggle.
There really is a reason for it, and a right way to deal with it. What say you?
I am curious about this: “Even if it happened today, we may actually be counted unworthy if we knew the way, had the ordinances, understood the path, and just failed to walk it.”
I have been a member since I was 8. I have only learned of the possibilities of the Second Comforter, being re-born, and everything that comes with it, this the last year.
When I first realized what the scriptures were really saying, I was a little upset that I have gone my whole life and NEVER heard anything about these things. I soon realized, from talking to others, that hardly anyone else knows anything about this either. Talk about the blind leading the blind!
My question is when do we become responsible for finding these mystries out? I have friends(all of my friends actually) who just don’t want to know. They like having the gospel on their terms. They are all active, lifelong members. At first I kept talking about these things because I could hardly restrain myself. I was(and still am) so thrilled at the possibilities that I would constantly bring these things up. The response has been likewarm at best. I have stopped talking about it for the most part now, only when I feel promted to say something, but nothing seems to change.
I guess I am just frustrated. People have said that you shouldn’t talk about these things with people before they are ready. But these same people read the scriptures and the scriptures are always talking about this! I was so thankful when I began to understand and be taught these things. I don’t understand why someone would not do as King Lamoi(I think) and give alway all their sins, everything to know Him.
Sorry I’m going on here. I don’t know what my questions is. I guess I just wonder if we all, who have access to this gospel, reach a point where enough is enough, and if we can’t see these things then it is because we don’t want to see them. And it becomes as you said…we are found unworthy.
I want more than anything in the world to be worthy of these things, I don’t understand anyone who doesn’t. 😦
