    I respectfully request an invite. In support of my request, I promise to remain a faithful member of the Alec Burks fan club.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

Repentance is the process of quitting things we are supposed to not do and starting to do the things we are supposed to. This is a gradual process, a ladder, and we continue this climb/path in an imperfect, yet justified state, because of our continuous repenting, the Atonement, and our covenants. Ultimately, when we have proven faithful enough we will be fully sanctified, but for now we are justified by the grace of God, BECAUSE WE STILL SIN. Also, agency is a divine principle -- God possesses and exercises His agency based on a full knowledge of good and evil ("ye shall be as gods knowing good and evil"). He knows sin brings pain and death and always chooses good.
    Whoa how do you know all this stuff?

    Isnít all this far too abstract and theoretical to put out there like itís math or science?

    Seriously I donít understand how anybody can think he knows all this very specific stuff about what God supposedly does and knows and agency and repentance and justification and atonement and all this stuff works.

    You understand that people have just made all this stuff up, right? The biggest mistake is thinking any of that stuff you state with such assurance is knowable or known by you.

    It’s the glib certainty and lecturing, condescending tone that triggers me I think.

    I think you dosed out an equal amount of glib certainty, lecturing, and condescension to poor Brother Crockett.

    Study question for next week:

    How do I honor and please myself instead of honoring God?

    Ahem.
