Mountain Of The Lord

At church on Sunday the teacher asked the class why we thought Isaiah used the term "mountain of the Lord" to describe the temple. A few people in class had some half-baked ideas, but not one of them mentioned the possibility that Isaiah had already seen the future and was therefore aware of the 1993 film about the Salt Lake Temple called Mountain Of The Lord, and was obviously just making a pop culture reference to that movie.

I was going to bring it up, but then I'd have to explain my whole theory to the class (yet again) about how ontological paradoxes like that are not necessarily impossible knowing what we know.

Besides my wife made me promise I wouldn't answer any questions in church anymore.

I love smart and long suffering women.

I think you’re depriving your ward of an inspired message.

My wife has made me stop whispering alternate lyrics to the hymns into her ear during church. Long-suffering women, indeed.
