  1. Predators are essential for the health of the ecosystem. Multiple apostles and the book of mormon likewise teach that satan is essential to the plan of salvation. Satan is begging treated unjustly for being a co-savior.

    1. Just one of the thorny and problematic issues Mormon Doctrine leads to when followed to its logical conclusions.

      Thanks for listening!


    1. Thanks so much!

      As Mark Twain said, “I can live for two months on a good compliment!”

      Now if I could just find some toilet paper . . .

  2. Dear RFM, I read Rock Waterman’s last blog today. It was a most interesting consideration of the Coronavirus. Since you are going to such great effort to help us through this time I thought you might want to review his blogspot and share some of it with us with your reasoning added. The filtering of accuracy from inaccuracy is what both of you endeavour to do and I appreciate it. If you only get one side of the story that might be the way you see it. Brother Joseph made a comment to the effect that there’s no pancake so thin that it doesn’t have two sides. I know you are busy between work and all the podcasts you are doing. I am just thinking there is some good information about fear management and comparison to other health problems such as flu and tuberculosis that would be helpful for us to consider. As always, your work is deeply appreciated. Thank you, Jim

    1. I appreciate the suggestion, Jim, and I have the highest respect for Rock Waterman.

      I will say, however, that my expertise is in Mormonism, and that is where I am must comfortable living and moving and having my being.

      It is also the subject I feel my listeners have reason to trust what I have to say on the subject.

      I am not a doctor, unless you include being a doctor of the law.

      I have no expertise in medicine.

      Anything I were to say about fear or health or the flu or the corona virus would, I am afraid, be extremely unhelpful, and perhaps even dangerous.

      Thanks for the suggestion, though!

      Be safe out there!


  3. My never mo partner calls the hyper competition for righteousness between Mormons as “trying to out-Mormon each other.” We see it all the time. And thanks for identifying a change to the meaning of the gathering of Israel. Talk about moving the goal posts!

  4. I know this is a couple years late, but I like to entertain the idea that if there is a Satan, he actually is a “co-savior” and where Jesus’ part of the plan was his atonement, Satan’s part is taking on the responsibility of all the pain caused by the necessity of his adversarial opposition as well as the bad rep.
