A Response To MRM's "As God Is, Man May Be?"

Another day, another article to debunk.
This document opens in standard form for critical material, in that the author's citation of McConkie's "Mormon Doctrine" lacks any sort of date citation for the edition. This is problematic, as even Wikipedia  notes that the book was unauthorized and that the original edition contained numerous instances of material that was McConkie's personal doctrine and not church teachings. I did locate the citation in my 1979 edition, and in so doing noted that an extensive section of text had been deleted by the ellipses.

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

Computer is borked.
Cat messed with keyboard and mouse.
Joints pop as I walk.
Injuries that did not heal.
Snap. Pop. Snap. Pop. Snap.
Still more weather woes.
Rain then sun with no logic.
I thought Spring was here.
Wake-Up Call*bounce*Wake-Up Call by Ironhold
Wake up. Check the clock. Just before 5 AM. Bit must want breakfast. Here's a fresh can of food, kiddo.
Looks like Harriet is awake now. OK. Feed her, too.
Still before 5 AM. Might as well get some more sleep.
Turn the TV on to something quiet and calming.
Close my eyes.
Get comfortable under the covers.
That distinctly sounds like a cat throwing up.
Don't think I'll be getting back to bed now.
