If I Could Hie To Kolob, I Would Choose Not To

The gospel teaches that we are supposed to live in the world but not of the world. Which is why I have chosen not to pursue a career as an astronaut

Because even though astronauts don't have to move to outer space permanently, I would still want to at least avoid the appearance of evil.

Being an astronaut goes against a lot of what we believe, like not getting high. I'm pretty sure space is as high as one can get.

Has Rick Searfoss been excommunicated yet? If not, isn't it about time?

Discuss.

I just read a book that in all seriousness attempted to map the location of Kolob (it's in the middle of the Milky Way Galazy, FYI).

Everyone knows Kolob is located somewhere around Newark..lucky for us EastCoasters..we won't have to hie..we can just take a bus or something:)

The rumor is that the Kolob isn't going to make the cut when the next hymnbook comes out! Really. It's a conspiracy to keep the location of Kolob a secret.

Once I tried to use my phone to say Hi to Kolob, but I kept getting a busy signal.

I'm not Brother Brock (you mean the Pioneer Foodie Brock?) He seems like a cool guy, but no, it's just me Matsby.

Great comments guys. Especially Laury. Very funny!

And Brother Holdinator, what's the name of that book. It sounds ridiculous - I mean interesting.

And all this time I thought Utah WAS Kolob...time for a testimony check...

I wish I could hike to Kolob Canyon (in central Utah) in the twinkling of an eye.

Couldn't we at least spice up the song?

But if you were an astronaut, at least you could record yourself . . .

What the FETCH! Kolob Canyon is above Cedar City North of St G.

Been to many a family reunion up there. It that was heaven on earth then we got jipped.

BTW Kolob is not in my Firefox dictionary ergo it is not real.

“And I Abraham…saw the stars, that they were very great, and that one of them was nearest unto the throne of God…and the name of the great one is Kolob, because it is near unto me, for I am the Lord thy God: I have set this one to govern all those which belong to the same order of that upon which thou standest. And the Lord said unto me, by the Urim and Thummim, that Kolob was after the manner of the Lord.” The Book of Abraham, Translated from Papyrus by Joseph Smith, 1878 edition.
