Having an Open Mind
Well, this week has been about the same, but it's been good. Our investigator came to church again! That's two weeks in a row! Yay! I'm really hoping that I get to stay this transfer, because otherwise she might not get baptized. People should not rely on the missionaries for their testimonies, but it's better than not even trying for one, so we'll work with her on that, but she does not want us to whitewash. (That means both missionaries get transferred out of the area and no new ones come in.) It already happened once and she wouldn't even let the missionaries in to see her husband...
Anyways, Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things arehonest, whatsoever things arejust, whatsoever things arepure, whatsoever thingsarelovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Mormons are the best religion in the world, because we follow this scripture. If we didn't always seek for the best things, we would be no more than any other run-of-the mill Christian that doesn't believe in the Book of Mormon, because all things that are good are from God. Joseph Smith said that Truth is Mormonism. We will believe in anything that is true. If science proves it, we will believe it. If science claims to prove it, we will believe it unless we have something more authoritative that tells us otherwise, like the Holy Ghost.
So if someone tells you something that seems crazy, but it doesn't contradict what we know to be true already, don't shoot them down, think on it. See if it isn't true, because there are many good and noble things that can help us to reach heavenward that haven't been revealed through the Prophets simply because they aren't vital to our salvation, but we can learn lessons from every facet of our lives.
