Vast Treasure Spent On War, Should We Support It?

Thursday, March 14th, 2013 | by Jeremy

Today via Facebook, I shared the following video and comment regarding how much we spend on war and a bit of reflection on if we should support it: Sad how much we spend on death and destruction. Even sadder that so many of us treat that money as sacred and untouchable. Maybe I’m mistaken, but […]

The Bible & Ron Paul

Saturday, December 31st, 2011 | by Jeremy

I recently came across this awesome video series that shows how Ron Paul’s positions best align with the Bible compared to other candidates (thanks to for sharing it). It is REALLY well done and worth the watch for all Christians. There are 13 short videos that discuss various topics and the moral, Constitutional, and […]

A Response to Regarding Creationism vs Evolution

Friday, March 4th, 2011 | by Jeremy

I receive emails from and sign many of their petitions because they have been making a strong effort to stop government takeovers of the internet and such. So far I have agreed with every petition and cause they have fought for since I signed up because I feel they have furthered the cause of […]

Elder Dallin H. Oaks Speech On Religious Freedom

Thursday, February 10th, 2011 | by Jeremy

This is an excellent talk discussing religious freedom and law. It does not have an LDS focus and should be watched by all: Mormon, Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Atheist, Agnostic, etc. I especially appreciate the continued inclusion of Muslims in his speech as worthy of the same religious freedoms as us all. I think all types […]

Hope Ya Know, We Had A Hard Time

Saturday, September 19th, 2009 | by Jeremy

The Church came out with this excellent video awhile back and I had been meaning to share it. It uses the talk by Elder Quentin L.

Apostles on the Civic Duty of Mormons

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009 | by Jeremy

About a year and a half ago, I had what I like to call a “political awakening.” I have always abhorred politics and current events in general. However, I couldn’t help but act on the increasing promptings I was getting to find out about the current political race for the presidency. I won’t get too […]

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009 | by Jeremy

I don’t know how many of you have seen this, but the church came out with a video a few weeks back using Elder Holland’s recent General Conference talk. The talk was very powerful, as you can see from the video. Just thought I’d share because it is very humbling and also insightful into the […]
