The Doctrine and Covenant of The Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-Day Saints. Containing revelations given to Joseph Smith, the Prophet, with some additions by successors in the Presidency of the Church. (It is often referred to by members as the D & C – you can read it here.) We believe that God continues to talk to his children today, through revelation as he did in ancient times. Some of these revelations, given to the whole church can be found in the D & C. We hold this book of revelations as sacred scripture, along with The Bible and The Book of Mormon, we invite all to come and read it and to pray and ask God if these words are true.
This months topic for my blog is ‘Health’ in the Lord’s way. Many of us have so much choice and are so blinded by the amount of choice that we have that instead of being healthier, we are in fact increasingly more unhealthy. The Lord gave the above revelation in 1833 to the then Prophet, Joseph Smith, since other things have been discussed by Church leaders and some verses have further clarification to help members understand God’s will for them.
This next week’s Ponderize scripture is –
“Given for a principle with a promise, adapted to the capacity of the weak and the weakest of all saints, who are or can be called saints.
Behold, verily thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequences of the evil designs which do and will exist in the hearts of conspiring men in the last days, I have warned you and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation – ”
The Questions I am asking myself this month are –
- What does this mean to me?
- What does this mean to you and the world?
- Why did God feel he needed to tell us these things 184 years ago and how relevant is it to me, to us, today?
- How can i live this better?
- Medically speaking is God right?
