Here it goes. I have learned to follow Jesus Christ, the God of Israel, and the ever promised or ever hoped Messiah even if a great of my friends, the Jews don't believe or care about him. Some of them even claim that if they knew the Messiah was coming on the way to Emmaus, for that matter, and they were planting a vineyard, that they will keep planting it before they make themselves worthy to go to and meet their God, King, LORD and Savior. What they do not know is how much they will cry or weep when they see him as he is with the marks of the nails in his hands and wrists, for of this it is already written;

    (Doctrine and Covenants | Section 45:52 - 53)





    “And the Lord will set his hand again the second time to restore his people from their lost and fallen state. Wherefore, he will proceed to do a marvelous work and a wonder among the children of men. Wherefore, he shall bring forth his words unto them, which words shall judge them at the last day, for they shall be given them for the purpose of convincing them of the true Messiah, who was rejected by them; and unto the convincing of them that they need not look forward any more for a Messiah to come, for there should not any come, save it should be a false Messiah which should deceive the people; for there is save one Messiah spoken of by the prophets, and that Messiah is he who should be rejected of the Jews. For according to the words of the prophets, the Messiah cometh in six hundred years from the time that my father left Jerusalem; and according to the words of the prophets, and also the word of the angel of God, his name shall be Jesus Christ, the Son of God. And now, my brethren, I have spoken plainly that ye cannot err. And as the Lord God liveth that brought Israel up out of the land of Egypt, and gave unto Moses power that he should heal the nations after they had been bitten by the poisonous serpents, if they would cast their eyes unto the serpent which he did raise up before them, and also gave him power that he should smite the rock and the water should come forth; yea, behold I say unto you, that as these things are true, and as the Lord God liveth, there is none other name given under heaven save it be this Jesus Christ, of which I have spoken, whereby man can be saved. Wherefore, for this cause hath the Lord God promised unto me that these things which I write shall be kept and preserved, and handed down unto my seed, from generation to generation, that the promise may be fulfilled unto Joseph, that his seed should never perish as long as the earth should stand.”

    It is the great thing about free agency or free will, the problem is that once we make a choice, we cannot alter the consequences. For instance, if you decide to jump from a high rise building, once of the way down, by law, you cannot repent half way to crash to is peril. We need to learn to chose the right. And use wisely our moral agency. One prophet once said that decisions, determine destiny. You can’t be right by doing wrong and you can be wrong. And we cannot stress this too strongly.

    Of course I COULD do it if I really wanted too, the more appropriate question would be if I still would want to do it. The answer to that? Depends on what it was and the arguments they made against it.

    I probably wouldn't do it if my friends strongly advised me not to, but actually it all depends on what it is that I wanted to do. Say for instance...bungee jumping...if my friends said not to, I most likely wouldn't unless there is an inflated safety mat below.
