3 Nephi : 18
PoeticIntensity

Sometimes I read the scriptures because doing so fills me with the Spirit.  Today was one of those times.  I need the spirit tonight. This chapter is loaded with details on the Sacrament and serving the Sacrament in congregations. Favorite verse was 32, "Nevertheless, ye shall not cast him out of your synagogues, or your places ...

3 Nephi : 17

Wow...  3rd Nephi 17.  This has been one of my top 5 all-time favorite scriptural chapters since I first read it when I was 14.  I love it. The first 6 verses, to me, envelop the love Christ has for us, and the appreciation He must feel when we show our grattitude toward Him.  There were no words uttered by his audience, yet H...

3 Nephi : 16

Wow, it's been a long time since I last studied my scriptures. The first thing which caught my attention is the phrase, "if it so be that my people at Jerusalem, they who have seen me and been with me in my ministry, do not ask the Father in my name, that they may receive a knowledge of you by the Holy Ghost".   I guess that...

Man... I'm so tired right now, but I've just gotta write about this. Tonight was the first show Jesse and I put on in the little "House Concert" tour we're going on. It was very low-key, but when the time came to play, the people just kept pouring in.  At the end of the show was the only time I had the sense to count how many peo...

Mosiah : 2

It's been a long time since I have read the Book of Mormon.  Well, I decided to repent tonight and read where I left off at Mosiah. One scripture which always stands out to me in this chapter is the latter portion of verse 9.  King Benjamin is telling people how they should prepare themselves to hear his message, and thus he says: ...

Alma : 14
PoeticIntensity
2 comments
This chapter is quite possibly one of the most potent chapters in all of the Book of Mormon.  It ranks right up there with the story of the Anti-Nephi-Lehi's willingly laying down their lives in the midst of thousands of people wanting to kill them, and thus, converting even more to the true faith of Christ. All I've got to say is, "Wow...

You know those types of musicians...  The ones that just "get it".  They don't worry much about writing the music, but rather, it seems to write itself.  Now, I'm not going to put words in his mouth, but it sure seems like this is the case with Alex Bateman. He came in, knew what he wanted, and the way he wanted his reco...

Okay...  First question about this chapter which really intrigues me is this:  Why would Moroni immediately assume wickedness on the part of the Nephites as soon as Nephihah was taken over? I don't ask this question rhetorically, or sarcastically because if I were him, I guess I could think of a thousand other reasons why a city would g...

Wow...  Moroni doesn't mix words, does he...  Reading this through as much of an objective filter as possible, I'd say there's some serious judgements going on.  Moroni blatantly calls Ammoron a "child of hell", and tells him that his brother went to hell.  heh...  Pretty gutsy, if ya ask me.  Going off of wh...

Since I've been job-hopping for the last bit, I've had the chance to install fresh gentoo builds on quite a few 64-bit computers in the last couple of months. I've also been looking at different IDEs for PHP development.  After using jEdit now for close to 5 years, I've gotta say the one which impresses me the most is Zend Studio for Eclips...

Playing this song was a joy, until I realized I'd been playing wrong for so many years. Trying to do the cover as a true cover was freakin' hard for this song.  I hope I did it justice, though.
