Don’t get in the wrong line

About Geoff B.

Geoff B has had three main careers. Some of them have overlapped. After attending Stanford University (class of 1985), he worked in journalism for several years until about 1992, when he took up his second career in telecommunications sales. In 1995, he took up his favorite and third career as father. Soon thereafter, Heavenly Father hit him over the head with a two-by-four (wielded by the Holy Ghost) and he woke up from a long sleep. Since then, he's been learning a lot about the Gospel. He still has a lot to learn. Geoff's held several Church callings: young men's president, high priest group leader, member of the bishopric, stake director of public affairs, media specialist for church public affairs, high councilman. He tries his best in his callings but usually falls short. Geoff has five children and lives in Colorado.

  1. The irony is that they know exactly what they are getting. It’s their choice, after all.

  2. I suspect that most people feel confident that they are in the unpleasant truths line and that those with whom they disagree are in the comforting lies line.

    The difficult question is when you have two people who are convinced that the other is in the wrong line, how do they go about convincing the other that he is wrong?

  3. 9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord:

    10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

    11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us. (Isaiah 30)

    From Elder Holland’s recent conference address. Some people don’t want to hear what the prophets say.

  4. When you don’t know which line to get into, the safe thing to do is to get in line with 15 prophets, seers and revelators. I don’t believe those who lined up with church leaders before June 8, 1978 are going to hell.

  5. I’ve been watching the Bloggernacle light up over the last couple of days with a moderate curiosity. However, tonight was the first time I saw John’s MormonStories post asking for messages for his family. I did not read all 968 (and counting) responses. The majority of those I did read were thanking John for helping them ease their transition out of the Church. I wonder if any of those people noticed the hollow irony of that “comfort.”

  6. How true this cartoon is!!!

    Just look at politics and you know, that many if not most people prefer to be lied to.
