Thousand Year Fast

When I think of time as measured by God, I much prefer Alma 40:8 which states that "time is only measured unto men" as opposed to 2 Peter 3:8 which tells us "that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years." (Of course, Peter's reckoning of cosmic time is the one that works for today's gag, so whatever.)


  1. Sometimes I think the purpose of fast Sundays is to give us a sense of how it would feel to have a day that lasts a thousand years.

  2. Or to prepare us for a perfect body that doesn't need much food?
    And yes, I also prefer Alma 40:8 to Peter 3:8. Peter use a comparison to teach the reader (in the same way of Jesus'parable), but too much men think that it's "the right number in the eyes of God"...
    The boy in the picture reminds me of my son, always having a "thought" that will make me ponder on the subject he just spoke about...
