Maybe there is no life after this and the atheists have it right. But even if they are right, what do I lose by choosing to live this way? I have found this church to be very successful at helping both me and so many other members live enlightened, happy, clean, practical, and productive lives. If it isn't true, I don't care, because I doubt I'll ever find anything better than this. But I am quite confident it actually is the truth. Here are 10 reasons I am absolutely thrilled to be anchored to the Rock of Christ as revealed through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

What is Real!

Posted by Mike Brown on Sat, Jan 07 2012 00:45:00

The world is flooded with things that consume the time of our lives. What of it is truly useful and important - REAL vs. just real? It’s like we are in a “plastic world", but will we be content to live "Ken and Barbie plastic lives"? Will we learn as Pinocchio did what it takes to become "a Real Person"? Will we be found with God, or against God?

  • “What is Real?” 1: Science, facts, pursuits - what is "capital R" Real?
  • “What is Real?” 2: The War in Heaven rages on Earth, and is Real.
  • “What is Real?” 3: What is NOT Real.

If so, might the Second Coming of Christ be fast approaching?  Red-states, blue-states – it’s a verbal Civil War!  Will the nation split in two? Or ten?  There are many mega-trends of wickedness in motion, and there are potential triggers that could initiate a series of catastrophes that could rival any challenges of the last century.
