Re: Restored vs. Continuing Revelation

It is a paradox. As Mormons, we believe the article of faith that says we believe all that has been revealed and all that more will be revealed in the future...meaning, we fully expect things to change. Yet, Mormons think that all doctrine is revealed currently. How many times have you heard people ...

Are Bible stories Fables?

I was recently thinking of mythology, fables and other stories and it dawned on me that Bible stories seem a lot like fables. A fable is a short story, usually with animals or something supernatural that conveys a moral. Adam and Eve and the serpent: sounds like a fable. Jack and the beanstalk: has ...

My son is researching the history of Deseret. Can anyone recommend a not-too-biased book or maybe articles/papers?
There was a tv show called How States Got Their Shapes had a small discussion on Deseret on the segment about Utah.

Re: What if?

1. I still don’t want to participate. 2.

Yep. Both the auto-pen and the little penlight and pad of ...

Re: Agency?

I think the only way agency works is if you exercise your agency to not tell anyone anything about your life choices. Also, if you exercise your agency to not give a F$$k.

Re: Elder Bednar's Latest B.S. Blowhardery

Looking at the title of the article, it appears Elder Bednar is feeling less legitimate as a leader. Legitimacy is given by the members, perhaps more members are feeling the leaders are not even needed.

Re: Jaredite logistics

The first real crack in my shelf was a similar logistics analysis with Noah’s ark. All the animals on Earth couldn't have fit in Noah’s barge for 40 days. Now think how hard it would be to last for a year on a small barge!

Re: Coronavirus and GAs

Hmm... I prophesy that future GC talks will come out of this for generations to come. For example: The spirit bore witness to me that I would be plagued with the Virus so that the Lord could protect the prophet by quarantining Sister Gong and I. We knew that our affliction would be a shield among t...

Re: Why Mormons Have No Idea How to Implement Christlike Values

Biden for President

I’m thinking of putting a Biden for President sign in my yard. I like stirring the pot sometimes. I have only seen local government campaign signs around yet, nothing National. Not even Trump.
I’m not much into politics and am a registered Republican....just because....I live in Utah...

Remember a while back there was a white lady, mom, that was pro white. This was a year or two ago. Not Julie Rowe. Anyway, what ever happened to her?

What did he say? I wasn’t listening. I think the gist of that part of his message was that those spouses who remain faithful when their spouses have "broken their covenants" will be OK in the end because their covenants will survive despite the acts of the covenant-breaker. He then left it out ther...

Re: Sunday Morning NOMference!!!!

I'm also doing something a little extra this NOMference. In case you haven't read the Saturday morning thread, the church has called out Tarot and Oracle decks in the latest version of CHI. So in order to make the SCMC more angry with me, I'm going to pull a card for us for each session. This morni...
