I guess none of you read mine very well. He said our times were like those of Noah. No one was left who was righteous other than Noah and some of his family.
That is what I was referring to, quite clearly I think. Those of you who love to tear things down will find what you desire to find. I think I will take a different road. It is far easier to destroy and tar down, than it is to search for a way to build up what little good there might be. Yes, the time will come when things will fall apart. It almost seems like some here want to hasten that time. So, go back and read John's post and my response, and try again. Jon Marc A.

IIn the post you quote, he clearly said there are no moral *nations*, and I would strongly agree. Has any part of Zion lived up to the covenant in Ether? I can't think of one, and that includes Canada. And we're supposed to be setting an example for the rest of the world. > > We are NOT like the days of (the prophet) Noah.
