Latter-day Commentary is much more to me than just a blog. It has been my catalyst for studying the gospel and a home for my essays on the signs of the times in the last days. It started on Blogger a few years back and has enjoyed a fairly decent following as far as solo LDS blogs go. I am a small part of the Bloggernacle community.
The move to WordPress provides me greater admin flexibility and a new clean look that I believe improves the reading experience. I hope you like it and will contribute. I leave the comments open long after each new essay. I read every one. While this is my forum for expressing my views, yours are also welcome but please read the guidelines.
Over the years, I have found three major areas about which I tend to write often in my essays:
1. The last days – I am a catastrophist and ardent believer that we are in for some worldwide, planet-shaking cataclysmic events sometime in the near future. Yes, I’m talking about a cosmological view that includes meteors, comets and planets with which we will soon have close encounters.
2. Marriage and sexuality – So much of the human mortal experience involves the powerful sex drive. To me, it is a huge motivating factor in all that I do. I am grateful for this gift and for the blessings of married life. Some of my most read and contested essays are about pornography and homosexuality.
3. Answers to anti-Mormons – I have always been interested in reading opposing interpretations of LDS doctrine and history. With the Internet, these viewpoints have received much greater exposure. Many of our members are exposed to it before their own testimonies are secure. My desire is to provide answers and encouragement.
