    30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

    31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

Mine doesn't, so I have a lot of fun.

    So anyway, the song for the month of March is "Follow the Prophet". I will be teaching all verses of it, just to tick off all the liberals in the ward. In fact, maybe I won't even have them sing the verses in the primary program at all; just 10 minutes of repeating the chorus at full volume.

    I thought it would be nice to write a new verse for President Monson, since most of these kids have never heard of obscure prophets like Enoch, Daniel, Jonah, etc. However, I am having a harder time than expected. Here is what I have so far. If anyone has any better ideas, I would love to hear them.

    Thomas Monson is our prophet, in the current day,
    Tells us we should marry, but not if we are gay.
    If you will be happy, do not become bitter,
    Follow Tommy's words, not Sooner's posts on Twitter
    Follow the Prophet, etc. etc.
    I hadn't seen this before. My wife had a much better verse for Thomas S. Monson, just saying. Don't worry this was written we were faithful.
    http://www.cougarstadium.com/showthr...ll=1#post67928

    Monson is our prophet, uses passive voice;
    We should fight gay marriage and the pro-choice.
    In this bad recession, prudence is the way!
    That huge house in Alpine can wait another day.
    (chorus)
    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!

    David was a prophet
    he could throw a stone,
    Sadly his eyes would wander
    and made him want to bone.

    To hide he found Uriah
    and left him in a heap.
    If he had been thinking
    he would have stuck with sheep.
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    Not bad. The cadence is almost perfect for the song.

    Knock if off. I love poetry contests.

    Brigham was a prophet
    The Lion of the Lord
    He loved plural marriage
    Didn’t need a flaming sword

    He preached blood atonement
    And Adam-god theory
    None of these caught on
    Except his university

    Russell M's our prophet
    the oldest one we've known
    so many grandchildren
    but only one WE own

    a heart surgeon by trade
    now he talks with God
    wedded wendy Watson
    sherry dew was awed
    I'm like LeBron James.

    Warren was a prophet
    In Colorado City
    His wives wear pastel dresses
    He thinks they are pretty

    He thought cops can’t touch him
    Just like M.C. Hammer
    Then he wed a pre-teen
    And now he’s in the slammer

    I'll try

    Balaam was a prophet
    Asked to curse Is-rael
    Should’ve told King Balak
    Just to go to Hell
    He rode out to tell Balak
    What would come to pass
    When the angel’s sword
    Stopped his little ass
