were we with god before we were born? do we go back to what we were before we were born? what were we before we were born?

i don't remember anything particularly terrible about that, whether with God or not.

seems okay.

.
Yes, we were w/God, and very happy.

We came to earth to learn, and can return to God depending on what we do with our lives here.

And yes it's biblical and Mormonical , and all true.

Says the bible of course.

If someone were to write a book about my teachings and sayings (the ones about being important and being a savior), I would sure as hell hope they wouldn't wait 40 some years to get it to print.

We can't even agree on what Lee Harvey Oswald did or did not do, or even who he really was.

And there are written transcripts, film, pictures and people alive today that interacted with him.

We seem to have two sides with very strong feelings that believe he did do something or he did not do something.

Reasonable people on each side are certain they are right.

The Bible and volumes of Mormon scripture.
Here's the Biblical verses:

OT-

Job 38:7
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Jer 1:5

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. (KJV)


NT-

John 17 4-5

4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

Did you read Ormus' post? Cause that pretty much disproves taking the Bible black-and-white in that case.

Taking anything as black-and-white is a big risk. Especially something not written by God, that claims to be His word.

Those are very poetic verses don't you think? Could make a pretty song...

The thing is with poetry it can be interpreted in so many ways.

I didn't say all of it was black and white, but a lot of it is. The New Testament is full of letters Paul and others wrote to churches and others. They're straight forward -- you just have to study the context they were written in and know the audience, but they're not abstract.

And yes, it's God's word, but it's written by humans. You're right. It's God's word because it's inspired by God, not because he grabbed a pen and started writing.

Mormonical = the opposite of what the Bible says.

The Bible says we can return to God depending on our response to God's grace, not what we do with our lives.

Interesting.
