Hamlet Act II, scene 1: “By Indirections Find Directions Out”: Brush Up Your Shakespeare: 007

In today’s scene, we find Polonius, the King’s counselor, being sneaky and using spies to gain information. It is a habit that not only contrasts with the “wise” Polonius we have already seen in Act I, it is a practice that will eventually lead to his death. Then his daughter, Ophelia, tells Polonius about an alarming encounter she just had with an emotionally overwrought Hamlet. Polonius believes this shows Hamlet is madly in love with his daughter, and rushes off to tell the King all about it. ... Read more

“A Marvelous Work And A Blunder” [Mormonism Live: 164]

Do We discover compelling evidence for the Book of Mormon? In this week’s “Mormonism Live,” hosts Radio Free Mormon and Bill Reel, with guest John Lundwall, critically analyze the YouTube video “A Marvelous Work – The Greatness of the Evidence” by Scott Christopher and “Book of Mormon Central.” Claiming compelling evidence for the Book of Mormon’s divinity, the hosts uncover issues, scrutinizing methodology and highlighting counter-evidence. They explore complexities, aiming for a balanced perspective, fostering a thought-provoking dialogue that challenges assumptions in the original video. “Mormonism Live” serves as a concise resource for re-evaluating perspectives on the Book of Mormon. Do We discover compelling evidence for the Book of Mormon? No Instead we discover deeply deceptive apologists, false experts, and a complete misuse of data and discoveries.

Think Celestial – Celestial Marriage in Mormonism Before 1890

In this episode of “Think Celestial – Celestial Marriage Before 1890” we embark on a journey through the annals of Mormon history to unravel the definition of Celestial Marriage as well as “The New and Everlasting Covenant” before the pivotal year of 1890 when Wilford Woodruff issued the Manifesto marking the beginning steps of ending polygamy. Join our hosts Bill Reel and RFM as they meticulously examine historical documents and quotes from early leaders, shedding light on the evolution of Mormon theology within the LDS Church. Delving into the depths of polygamy and plural marriage, we explore how “Celestial Marriage” & “The New and Everlasting Covenant” were distinctly defined in the early days of Mormonism. Through the lens of primary sources and firsthand accounts, our hosts navigate the changing landscapes of doctrine, uncovering a fascinating contrast between the historical understanding and the modern interpretation of Celestial Marriage. As the hosts dissect archival materials, listeners gain insight into the complexities, controversies, and transformations that shaped the concept of eternal marriage in the early years of the LDS Church. “Think Celestial” invites you to reconsider preconceptions and delve into the rich historical context surrounding Celestial Marriage, bridging the gap between past and present perceptions. Join us in this exploration of Mormonism’s journey, where the celestial union took on different meanings, offering a thought-provoking glimpse into the foundations that have shaped the modern LDS understanding of eternal marriage.
