A Pre-General Conference Message

A fine member of the Church was talking with a neighbor who was not of our faith. When the topic of discussion turned to My Religious Blog, the neighbor asked, “You say that there's some guy in your church with a website who makes stupid general conference lolcats?”

“Absolutely,” the member replied with confidence.

The neighbor thought about that for a moment. He seemed genuinely interested and then asked, “What did the lolcat say on that blog for the last general conference?”

At this point the good member of the Church explained that the cat had warned about the evils of pernogrify and then Slash drove his car off a cliff with his girlfriend inside.

His friend found this troubling and asked, “You mean to tell me that the legendary guitar player for the band Guns and Roses drove himself and his girlfriend off a cliff?”

The brother replied "no my friend, Slash jumped out justen times."

Then later the member decided to join the church and he had the Mormon dude baptize him. Then when they died they both went to the Celestial Kingdom. But there was another neighbor who was also Mormon who didn't read My Religious blog and that guy ended up embezzling a lot of money from his company and he was kind of a jerk to his family then when he died, let's just say he didn't get to be neighbors with those other guys anymore.

I think we all could learn a lot from this story.

Amen.

When I gather my kids for family prayer tonight, I'll make them listen to Slash's riffs in November Rain before bowing their heads.

I haven't felt this moved since last April's Church Audit Committee report.

Many of us are bounded by traditional beliefs which do not have biblical foundations. Check it out at truebibledoctrines.com

After reading that story, I don't really remember what it said. But I will always remember how I felt when I read it.
