Now Playing: Scholars' Review of the LDS Book of Abraham
Mormon Bandwagon is a fantastic web site. The author hopes it will be a place to safely share perspectives regarding the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, otherwise known as the Mormon church.
Pastafarians, behold the glory of the Flying Spaghetti Monster!
Have you too been touched by his noodly appendage? The Flying Spaghetti Monster, or FSM, is typically depicted--at least in images that show Joseph Smith's first vision of the FSM--as a cluster of spaghetti noodles wrapped around meatballs with protruding eyes.
Here's an updated version of the holy spirit cartoon that was posted a few weeks ago. The title at the top read "The Holy Ghost" and the holy spirit's ragged t-shirt reads "I'm the Burning in Your Bosom, Baby". The url in the bottom right corner is http://goo.gl/yCzKwM which directs to Google search results for [burning in the bosom site:mormon.org].
Regardless of what they say, it really is true that Mormons believe you cannot return to God (i.e., dwell in the celestial kingdom in the afterlife) unless you pay tithing. In other words, if you want to go to the highest level of heaven, it'll cost you.
In the Book of Mormon, we read that God will not forgive those who deny the holy spirit: "For behold, if ye deny the Holy Ghost when it once has had place in you, and ye know that ye deny it, behold, this is a sin which is unpardonable; yea, and whosoever murdereth against the light and knowledge of God, it is not easy for him to obtain forgiveness; yea, I say unto you, my son, that it is not easy for him to obtain a forgiveness." This verse is found in Alma 39:6.
Joseph Smith's vision of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is catching a lot of attention from Pastafarians as well as people don't believe in the FSM.
