Got Lamp Oil?

(View the poem behind the painting)

Matthew 25:1-13

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels and their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Rule #3
Bashing of others will not be tolerated. If you disagree with someone's opinion, just agree to disagree and move on. Please, no contention.

Rule #4
Please do not post any anti-Christian, anti-Mormon, or anti-religion materials. Even cleverly disguised anti-Mormon or apostate material will not be tolerated. We already know what it looks like and recognize it for what it is. If you post it you will be banned. Apostate doctrines should not be discussed, it is simply not something we are going to allow here.

Rule #5
This is a public site. So, the content of the message boards is also public. If you wish to copy any contents of a post or anything else from the site to post on another site or in any public area, we would ask that you please get permission from the author of the content first. And don�t take quotes or items out of context.

Rule #6
This website takes the position that polygamists, apostates and their supporters (within and without the Church) are in error. We also believe the living Prophet and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints have all of the keys and are the Lord's only authorized servants to declare policies and doctrines for the Church.

Rule #7
In regards to personal dreams and visions, they are just that (for you the poster) not for others. Unless you were directed personally by the Lord and the Brethren have acknowledged or authenticated and approved such a thing, as to declare a message to His children by you, then such things are not to be posted. The genesis of this site is for preparation and following the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints through our living Prophet under the direction of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Posting things outside of the scope of Jesus Christ's revealed Latter-Day Gospel will be deleted with no exception.
