False Prophets

In the Bloggernacle, it seems that the main players are atheists, liberal Mormons, and Orthodox Mormons.  It is pretty rare that an evangelical Mormon enters the debate, and I think is even more rare for a Mormon to become an evangelical.  (Granted, my view could be biased by my experience.  From my experience, most former […]

Posts Restored – Back to the Present

Many of you have noticed a blast from the past on my blog.  Back in Feb 2013, my host server crashed and I had to back up my blog and try to restore it.  I picked WordPress.com, thinking that was a good choice.  Well, it didn’t restore all my posts–I was missing about 150 of […]
