Welcome to the site. I am glad you felt comfortable posting and made several contributions.
I made some edits to these contributions. In two cases (Rom 8:16-20, Luke 14:11-15) I moved your comment to the discussion page. Given the tone and content of your comments I felt they were a better fit there. In the third case (D&C 50:1-5) I felt like the content was the right type of content for the commentary page but the tone was more discussion like. In that case I changed the tone but left the content on the commentary page. In addition I made some minor revisions to syntax.
Of course, as this is a wiki, you should feel free to re-edit the commentary page to continue to improve it and the commentary on other pages as well.
For more information on what goes where and how this site works please see the site:policies.
Thanks again for contributing. I hope you continue to contribute regularly.

thanks, --Matthew Faulconer 01:27, 16 Sep 2005 (CEST)
Thanks for your continued support of the site. Just a reminder to sign your comments on the discussion (aka talk) pages--though not on the commentary pages. To sign your name one easy way is to click the second-to-right button above the edit window. Alternatively you can type 4 elipses: ~~~~ --Matthew Faulconer 08:48, 25 Sep 2005 (CEST)
Just another reminder to sign--see above. No big deal. I forget all the time. I just thought I'd let you know. --Matthew Faulconer 05:50, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Enjoyed reading your comment
Hi Bhardle, I just wanted to say that I enjoyed reading your comment on the talk page Talk:Hel 7:1-5. I've had much the same feeling as you: I am surprised that the Nephite's can turn from good to bad so quickly--but then I look at my own life and I am also surprised that I make such mistakes when I obviously should know better. I think in some ways these feelings are similar to those Nephi expresses in 2 Ne 4:17-35. --Matthew Faulconer 14:30, 7 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Personal Comments and Lexical Notes
While servivng a mission I think this passage of scripture meant the most to me because we were always persecuted for trying to do the right thing. People would always try to get us to stop telling them about religion and God. People would look at us funny, swear at us, ignore us, be rude to us, and so on. But this passage always comforted me as I realised that prophets in the past had it so much worse and they were so powerful of examples. Even though we weren't accepted at most places we went I still felt blessed and protected by the Lord.
bhardle, I've moved some of your recent comments around, and deleted the above from 3 Ne 12:11-15. Right now, this user page is the best place for such personal commentary...not the main commentary pages. Also, the Lexical notes section is for discussion relating to the wording or phrasing of each passage. Comments or interpretations about the meaning of the passage should be added to the Exegesis section of the commentary page. Rob Fergus 15:54, 31 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Hi Bhardle, Thanks for the story about being healed. It is a great. I moved it to a user sub-page. I think this is the best place for it. On a discussion page it could get archived later. Also I found two version of it on this site. I decided it wouldn't be good for me to edit them to make for a single version since I don't know the details. So I put them both on that page so that you can make them into a single version if you would prefer. Also, it might be good to pick the place in the scriptures that makes the most sense to share this experience and link to it from there in the "related links" section. That way others can get to your user sub-page from the scriptures. --Matthew Faulconer 05:25, 29 Nov 2005 (UTC)
