When I joined the church I knew nothing about the seer stone nor it was portrayed in the church published art.
The art shows Joseph Smith looking at the golden plates and dictating to his scribe. Here is my response: Thank you for your message and I apologize for my slow reply.
It was frustrating and tiring, far more trouble than I could imagine it being worth for a woman legitimately invested in it. Initially, I was engaging with people, replying to their messages and asking questions.
Ladies: I'm not going to claim some comprehensive understanding of the social plights of the modern woman, but OKCupid gave me a tiny peek into your part of the online dating world, and it's exhausting. The numbers are so overwhelmingly in their favor that I could kick back and watch my inbox fill with messages, no effort required after setting up the profile. But halfway through day two, I was having to comb through an inbox bursting with weirdness, deviance, and even cultural and racial insensitivity.
The truth is, this feeling of urgency and intensity or strong attraction toward another person is not necessarily a reliable indicator of whether you are in love or should immediately dive into a serious dating relationship.
The wisest man in the bible, King Solomon said, Guard your affections, for out of them come the issues of life.
My job was to study all the negative material written about Joseph Smith and the Church and provide a summary of it.Just look at what Dan Bloom, Korea’s foremost expert on dating Korean women, has to say about them! The fierce competition for men in Korea means that Korean women really take care of themselves – it’s almost impossible to find an “American sized” Korean woman, if you know what I mean. Of course, as men, we’re in it for more than just physical look… Anybody who accuses Korean women of being “easy” should be lead off to the asylum.Having just gotten back from Japan, I can definitely see where Redpole Q’s characterization of Japanese girls hits its mark dead-center but, as good as Japanese women are, Korean women have some distinct advantages. Korean women have a desire to please that just isn’t matched in the West.I see far too many people jumping into relationships and not guarding their affections, only to become confused, disillusioned, and devastated.We need to keep telling ourselves the basic truths of a healthy and truly loving relationship. While you spend time getting to know someone as a friend, you are able to see more clearly whether they are right for you and you for them.I received this question from a friend when I posted Elder Uchtdorf’s post about comparing the seer stones to cell phones: Hi Paul, I saw your post about the seer stone on your FB.
