Re: LDS Church proposes new community near future Tooele Valley Temple

As most may be aware, residents of Tooele county are trying to block the development of higher density housing with the whole temple development project. An interesting tie bit is that the church is now saying the development of the temple and all the homes and green areas is a “packaged deal”. The ...

Re: New handbook changes

that children born to a surrogate mother can be sealed to parents in a temple only with First Presidency approval. What is the rationale for this requirement? Right? I'm confused on that one too. And it's particularly sh!tty even for the HOI. They put all this pressure on women to become mothers an...

Re: New handbook changes

I noticed on another board that Scott Lloyd posted the changes were riddled with misspelled words and grammatical problems. Sounds like a sloppy, speedy change. Maybe they have outsourced this job to the missionaries.

Re: How essential is a literal Adam and Eve story to Mormonism?

How about this theory: Thousands of years ago, humans wondered where they came from; how the originated. They began telling stories in their regional culture. Over time, these cultural stories evolved into what today we know as Adan and Eve. Essentially, A&E are just made up to tell a story. Works ...

Re: How essential is a literal Adam and Eve story to Mormonism?

There was a talk from JR Holland where he claimed with certainty that Adam and Eve were real and our first parents....The church is tied to the literalness of A&E, yet I think at some point in the game, a symbolic A&E will be taught. There is too much evidence today that A&E were not the literal pa...

Re: The Divine Purposes of Sexual Intimacy

I read all the hoopla about this edition from both the faithful/faithless side of reddit, and like you, RR, I was curious as to all this entailed. So I read a few of the articles just to get a flavour of them. My takeaway? How can Mormons make even sex so boring? What a nothingburger this was. On t...

Re: The Divine Purposes of Sexual Intimacy

I just went out to the mailbox and inside was the August edition of the Ensign. The cover had a featured story about teaching sexuality in a gospel way. Needless to say the neatly wrapped plastic bundle containing the Ensign, New Era, & Friend went straight to the recycle can unopened. However, the...

Re: The temple endowment ceremony is changing.... again...

Question, what exactly is sacred about the temple ceremony? Was it the blood atonement? Was it the slashing of throat and bowels penalties? Was it the handshakes, which everyone knows were from the Freemasons? If you take away the rites that are Masonic, then all that is left is the parts at the vei...

I like to think of evolution as a prime tool in God's utility belt. Good on science for expanding the boundaries of religion.
Never thought of this, but a grand creator who implemented evolution...that’s a good one.

God vs Evolution vs middle land

My beliefs have changed over the years of my faith crisis. I no longer believe in the Mormon God. I can’t. I have struggled to define what I believe in now. The book “Sapiens” has been the most therapeutic and helpful book I have read. It has helped me to connect with and to understand my past. It d...
