[font='Crimson Text', serif]Is there reason then why the type of birth we receive in this life is not a reflection of our worthiness or lack of it in the pre-existent life? ... can we account in any other way for the birth of some of the children of God in darkest Africa, or in flood-ridden China, or among the starving hordes of India, while some of the rest of us are born here in the United States? We cannot escape the conclusion that because of performance in our pre-existence some of us are born as Chinese, some as Japanese, some as Latter-day Saints. There are rewards and punishments, fully in harmony with His established policy in dealing with sinners and saints, rewarding all according to their deeds....[/font][font='Crimson Text', serif]Let us consider the great mercy of God for a moment. A Chinese, born in China with a dark skin, and with all the handicaps of that race, seems to have little opportunity. But think of the mercy of God to Chinese people who are willing to accept the gospel. In spite of whatever they might have done in the pre-existence to justify being born over there as Chinamen, if they now, in this life, accept the gospel and live it the rest of their lives they can have the Priesthood, go to the temple and receive endowments and sealings, and that means they can have exaltation. Isn't the mercy of God marvelous? Think of the Negro, cursed as to the Priesthood.... This Negro, who, in the pre-existence lived the type of life which justified the Lord in sending him to the earth in the lineage of Cain with a black skin, and possibly being born in darkest Africa – if that Negro is willing when he hears the gospel to accept it, he may have many of the blessings of the gospel. In spite of all he did in the pre-existent life, the Lord is willing.... to give him the blessings of baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost. If that Negro is faithful all his days, he can and will enter the Celestial Kingdom. He will go there as a servant, but he will get celestial glory.[/font]
The LDS may have "officially" changed their stance on some of these things.... but I highly suggest you reconsider becoming a Mormon.
I get that you're searching for any chance at happiness you can find, but I doubt your best shot at finding it lies in the LDS church.
LostTuna said:i went to school with a decent amount of mormons actually. most of the guys were subhumans and a lot were balding already in their teens. some were robust and really tall and kinda jockish tho. a lot of mormons in general marry up real quick after high school. i knew like 3 that married their high school sweethearts when they were 20 and still in uni and they had big weddings and shit. also a lot of them still drink and shit they just keep it more lowkey

I knew a Mormon guy back in high school. He was nice. We were going to start a band. He was going to sing. It never happened. I think he stopped liking me when he realized I wasn't a good person like him. He had a Mexican girlfriend and lost his virginity to her I think. The last time we talked he told me he wasn't going to do anything without me. I think he sensed I was worried he wouldn't include me in his musical plans. I never saw him again. I saw the Mexican girl when I went to De Anza.
Another thing that I want to say is that the girls at this school are hella hot. Better than any other community college in San Jose/Bay Area. Those girls are the reason that I am motivated to go to class on a daily basis.
Well aside from West Valley Community College since Playboy supposedly scouts girls over there.
