RESEARCH PAPER INDEX

By Cordell And Janice Vail

This is an index to the research papers we have scanned in for this web page so far.



We have had so many people ask us if they could photo copy our research papers because we do not have an electronic copy of them that we finally decided to start scanning them in. We are finding that we can scan in a 200 page research paper in about 2 hours (some are much longer than that.) We have about 100 of them so this is going to take a while to get them all on here. Most of them we started writing back in the 70's and 80's and 90's and printed them out with a dot matrix printers so they are a little hard to read now on the scanned copy. However we do not have an electronic copy of them any more so we have to scan them in to re-capture them so we can share them with family and friends. Some are simply too long to even scan in. The research paper we have on the temple is several three inch three ring binders full of information so that likely will not get scanned in for some time if ever.

Because some of them are 200 or 300 pages long we will brake the scanning up into chapters to make it easier for you to study them. 

Because they are PDF files, and quite long, it may take a minute or two for it to open, so be patient after you click on it.

Here is a research paper I wrote in 1976 while going to Graduate School at the University of Utah. It is amazing to me every time I look at one of my old research papers how I could have been working full time, going to Graduate School, rasing a family, holding a church calling and yet sat and typed all this information out. AMAZING THE THINGS WE DID AT NIGHT WHEN OTHERS WERE SLEEPING WHILE WE WERE STILL YOUNG. I am reminded of this poem: "The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night". Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Read more at: http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/h/henrywadsw129800.html). But I guess I am still doing it. It is 1:05 a.m. right now as I post this paper to the web page..... Old habits die hard....

This paper defines the difference between words like: Light of Christ, Spirit of Christ, Spirit of God, Spirit of Holy Ghost, Gift of the Holy Ghost, Other Comfoter, etc. Happy reading if you have the time (and by the way this is only about half of the actual paper. I did not have time to scan the articles I have in the paper from conference talks, magazine articles, BYU professor handouts, etc)

RESEARCH PAPER ON LIGHT
This is one of the first long research papers we wrote that was not just a handout starting back in 1991. 
It is one of our most valuable research papers. It is the key to understanding most of the others
we have written. This research paper contains every scripture we could find where it uses the word light.
It also attempts to capture the concept of what light is in relation to our eternal salvation.
Part 1 - Concordance (everywhere LIGHT is in scriptures)
Part 2 - Cordell's Scriptural References On Light
Part 3 - Conference - Ensign Talks On Light
Part 4 - Cordell's Notes On Light
Part 5 - Friend's Notes On Light

THE POWERS THAT SATAN AND EVIL SPIRITS DO AND DO NOT HAVE 
This is a research paper we wrote to try to understand the power that Satan and Evil Spirits do and do not have. 
Part 1 - Our Personal Research Notes
Part 2 - Scripture Concordance
Part 3 - Satan's Counterfeits
Part 4 - Talks from Journal Of Discourses
Part 5 - Miscellaneous Sources
Part 6 - Research by John Gary Teuscher
Part 7 - Satanism found in the world
Part 8 - Letters to Friends

FREEMASONRY AND THE LDS CHURCH
This is a research paper I started in 1965 as a guide in Nauvoo, Ill and added to in 1971 while in the Army. I have added some things to it since then. Instead of doing the same kind of research as before, now my research has been more pulling information off the Internet and saving it to make it easier to find as I do further study on the subject. I have tried to leave the links and references to any material I pulled from the Internet on the paper to give them credit for their work. This paper is not broken up like the others into chapters for easier downloading. It is 95 pages long, so be patient while it downloads to your computer.
