President Russell M. Nelson of the LDS Church shared 5 "absolute truths" a few days ago, and I comment on where I think he was right, and where I believe he was unfortunately mistaken.
Does morality change with each culture, community, time, place, and situation? Or does it remain fixed for all eternity? Do I have a "bad dog"?
Is there something beyond traditional moral notions of right and wrong? Is there a higher Law that transcends all other laws? Mysticism has something to say about that.
This is my response to a recent video produced by the LDS Church on the nature of God. My reinterpretation moves away from the supernatural dualistic interpretation, towards a more immanent nondualistic interpretation of the Divine.
The God we are referring to is often known in Mormonism (and more generally in Christianity) as "God the Father," "Heavenly Father," or just "the Father."
An addition to the BHT, where "Paul" writes about the mystery of God found in Christ, and the resulting relationship to philosophy, tradition, teachers, and law.
This is the one of the greatest questions which has puzzled humanity for millennia. Where did we come from? What is our origin, our source? PBS Digital Studios has put together a great introduction on the topic, a summary of all of our scientific discoveries.
An addition to the BHT, which is the Apostle Paul's sermon at the Areopagus, or high court at Mars Hill, about the nature of God.

An addition to the BHT, about the problems with religious authorities.
