NEEDLESS TO SAY, A FEW FOLKS ARE PRETTY UPSET OVER THIS.

MIB You never cease to amaze me!

More on; or is it Moron!

September Dawn

This is the story of an improbable romance between two nineteen-year-olds from starkly different worlds. Jonathan - the son of a Mormon Bishop, is suffocating under the rigid confines and expectations of the church as well as tormented by the execution of his loving Mother.
When a wagon train passes through their land, Jonathan is ordered to spy on the Gentiles by his untrusting father, Jacob, and falls in love with beautiful, free-spirited Emily - the daughter of a Christian pastor.

Set in a beautiful, pristine valley called Mountain Meadows, Jonathan tames a wild, magnificent black stallion and wins the heart of the girl who has captured his. Emily opens Jonathan’s eyes to a world that lies outside of his personal torment as they pursue their forbidden love.
Aware of the drastic change in his son’s behavior, Jacob believes the traveling gentiles are a threat to his family’s way of life and instigates one of the most controversial battles in American history. Painful to watch is the psychological fragmentation of Jonathan’s beloved brother, good-natured Micah, who self-destructs in the process of becoming a killer.

Jonathan races to save Emily, as the scope and magnitude of their love amidst the searing fire and ashes of the Mountain Meadow Massacre unforgettably unfolds. Jonathan is faced with the most difficult decision of his life. He must choose between his brother, his faith, or Emily…by the rise of the SEPTEMBER DAWN.

The bracketed identification of the surviving children is a suggestion based on information on the memorial that was placed at Mountain Meadows in 1990.

It would be interesting to hear from some in CC /Hildale regarding the assembly of the silo as noted in photos above. Does it look like the one that is now missing from your area of the world?

Certainly, Shilo is missing, and will soon return.

Genesis 49:10

"The sceptre shall not pass from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shilo come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be".

Wow - justifying theft with scripture - I can't even say it's new low - just pathetic

onthestreet said...

IS NOT CHRIST JUSTIFIED??? "And I shall come as a THIEF in the night".

You cannot STEAL what you own.

ATAR_i said...

Twist away, theft is theft, and Jesus isn't a theif

Your precious psuedo-prophet is.

onthestreet said...

He Himself said that "I will come as a THIEF in the night". You do not know the truth, after all, do you? You are as much as calling Jesus Christ a liar.

onthestreet said...

He STEALS away your freedoms, your resources, your very life, like he did to nations and empires before. And why. Because you do not know the enemy within yourselves, and love to have it so. So He must bring you into humble straights, that he might save you from your own self.

So you're calling Jesus, the son of God a thief?

Your painting him to be the same sort of thief as warren?

BTW he didn't state he *was* a thief in the night. He stated he came, LIKE a thief in the night - QUIETLY

IT'S A SIMILE FOR GOSH SAKE
Any kid in elementary school could get a simple simile. Your not a good code breaker if you can't even get the stuff written in plain english

examples:

my loves like a red, red, rose
cold as ice
happy as a clam
soft as sifted flour
easy as pie
he eats like a pig
fresh as a daisy
tough as leather
pretty as a picture
vines like golden prisons
his nose like a cherry

Send back the coherent OTS - the one that can read.
