> Interesting question Gabbix2. So, what you are asking is if God said to do something that was ordinarily wrong, would I say it was good? I can't imagine what it might be, but there are examples of that happening in scripture. Even then, God didn't say it was good, He just said it was necessary. "It is better that one man perish than a whole nation dwindle in unbelief"

You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou shalt not commit Adultery" and "Thou Shalt Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians! It creates a hostile work environment.

rayww,
In your post above, there is a link offered and clicking on the link brings up verses.
In #2, 1Ne. 10:11 it reads;
[...the dwindling of the jews in unbelief. And after they had slain the Messiah...].
Then in #4, 1Ne. 12:23 it reads:
[...after they had dwindled in unbelief they became a dark and loathsome, and filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations...]
Then in #10, 2Ne.26:19 it reads,
[...those that have dwindled in unbelief shall be smitten by the hand of the gentiles...]
Then in #27, GS Unbelief it writes near the end of the paragraph, [...I could not show unto the jews so great miracles, because of their unbelief, 3 Ne. 19:35...].
Then it writes that these are the offitial scriptures of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
I am reserving to respond at a latter date to your post. As of now, I am using the procedure here to state that it is my opinion that the post here is not in accordance with the guidlines of the faith forum and the guidlines are on the opening page of the forum andI am requesting that you review them, because it is my opinion that parts of it, in particular but not limited to, the part that writes [...dwindling of the jews in unbelief...]which IMO has the potential for one to think that that verse could be coupled with ,[...after {they} had dwindled in unbelief they became a dark, and loathsome and filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations...].
I feel that IMO there is the potential for these verses to arrouse antisemitic feelings and have the potential to put down jews and those of other faiths.
