Über diesen Blog.

Hier schreiben Wissenschaftler*innen der Universität Oldenburg und Gastautor*innen darüber, wie sich Gesellschaften selbst wahrnehmen und thematisieren, sich ihrer jeweiligen Gegenwart vergewissern und dabei in die Zukunft entwerfen.

Wie stehen diese Selbstwahrnehmungen und -entwürfe mit Institutionen, Medien und Techniken zur Gestaltung von Natur, Gesellschaft und Subjektivität in Verbindung? Wie modellieren sie den lebensweltlichen Alltag und halten Menschen zu einem bestimmten Verhalten an? Wie werden diese Interventionen in das Gegebene begründet und legitimiert, aber auch kritisiert, verworfen oder unterlaufen?

Diesen Fragen, deren interdisziplinäre Reflexion eines der zentralen Anliegen des Wissenschaftlichen Zentrums „Genealogie der Gegenwart“ ist, gehen die Blogger aus unterschiedlichen Fachperspektiven und Tätigkeitszusammenhängen mit Blick auf kontrovers verhandelte Themen wie Migration, Ungleichheit, Digitalisierung, Kriminalität, Gesundheit und Ökologie nach.

Lincoln+NE+Nebraska review

This allows a person to quickly look up any word or phrase found in the entire standard works

I understand the correct doctrine of piece by piece, line by line, but this is nano-bite by nano-bite

So, in conclusion, the LDS may be better off ignoring all chapter headings, verse summaries, footnotes, the Topical Guide, the Index, the Guide to the Scriptures, the Bible Dictionary and even the Joseph Smith Translation when studying their scriptures. They ought to just use the scriptures themselves and the Holy Ghost to figure it all out.

1–9, Use of wine, strong drinks, tobacco, and hot drinks proscribed; 10–17, Herbs, fruits, flesh, and grain are ordained for the use of man and of animals; 18–21, Obedience to gospel law, including the Word of Wisdom, brings temporal and spiritual blessings.

Anything that points the mind in one direction or another, to the exclusion of all the other directions, conditions it to look at the scripture from only one vantage point, which is not the correct way to understand scripture. The entire scriptural canon needs to be used to interpret correctly any portion thereof. This is why even footnote scriptural references can be interpretative and thus, bad or misleading. To give an example of how footnotes can condition a person into thinking one way, and one way only, consider the following:

It is unfortunate that although it was never intended to be official, the BD is often considered definitive by the LDS. The LDS are naturally quite zealous, but are also mentally lazy, so the inclusion of the Bible dictionary in the standard work editions practically guaranteed that no LDS would consult a more exhaustive dictionary. This ensured that LDS remained scriptural retards, to put it bluntly.

Another example of this doctrinal dilution trend is the web site , to which we are instructed to refer investigators. I, personally, can’t visit that site without cringing. A click on the Glossary link at the bottom of the home page and a selection of any of the topics brings up the most shallow and concise definitions I’ve ever heard. If I were investigating the church today (instead of decades ago), and was given these bits, I would spiritually starve to death. Luckily, the scriptures are still there to sup from and feast upon, but with all the emphasis on “helps,” it’s a wonder if anyone actually reads their scriptures anymore.
