Re: Hans and Brigitta Mattson, 2nd and 3rd Witnesses for the 2nd Anointing

My understanding is the 2nd anointing was commonplace until around the 1930s where it abruptly stopped. It then only became available bro the elite. The names of those receiving the ordinance were printed in the newspaper.

Re: RFM has Big Day at Utah Records Committee Hearing!

It seems like BYUPD is still arguing that BYUPD is not a public entity. Is not BYUPD a public entity? I thought that was rules a while back.

A reminder about sexual predators

With churches closed for a few months, sexual predators in the church are probably going crazy from lack of access to our children. At some point, sexual predators will again insist they have to meet with our youth to make sure they are worthy. Remember, you can just say No. This public safety annou...

Re: Opening Up Church Again

I just don’t understand the church needing to open. What could be so pressing that people’s lives are put at risk? There is also a tremendous push to open temples. Why didn’t the church simply state that the health of members is more important than church services and that the churches would remain ...

Re: Opening Up Church Again

I first read this on the MDD board. I was amazed at all the true blue died in the wool TBM people were not very happy about returning. It was quite funny, and I think the underlying concern is that the church doesn’t appreciate the severity of this virus and just wants to get back to the business of...

Re: How do we bridge the epistemological divide of “I know”?

My experience probably reflects those of others: I took Moroni’s challenge to heart. I fasted and prayed to know the Book of Mormon was true. Over a period of months, I read, pondered, and prayed to know the truth. Each time I prayed I felt....nothing. Eventually, I decided just to go along with eve...

Re: Theodemocracy in theory

Having an organized theocracy on paper and how it would actually work are two separate things. What would the church be like today if Utah was its own territory run by the church. Wait, that is pretty much how it is anyway, but it would be 10 times worse. I think this church theocracy would be somew...

Re: Is The ANY record of Prophecy About Corona?

The prophet of Community of Christ, Stephen Veazey, changed the rules regarding the practice of the sacrament of the Lord's Supper last September. While that didn't predict the coronavirus, it clearly anticipated a need that we have now. As a result of the preemptive change, Community of Christ mem...

Re: Church wants more Christ-centered artwork in buildings

I think this is a good thing. Anything to knock Joseph down below Christ is good. It mentioned in a SLTrib article that the foyers are also to be free of cork boards, missionary plaques, and I assume easels announcing Relief Society super Saturday’s. Only Christ can be in the central foyers. Sure, i...

Thank You Mothers

In this US holiday called Mothers Day, May we be reminded of the work, patience, and support our mothers have provided, yeah even millions of years before Adam and Eve, to cultivate our lives and make us the human beings we are today. Thank You Mothers.

Nice lesson. How does the wordy Book of Mormon work with the concept that Joseph never actually looked at the BoM during “translation”?

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

Actually, Tooele county is one of the top 10 fastest growing counties in the nation. There are many homes going in as it is about 30 minutes to salt lake, but feels remote and country. The church has been doing this community thing around temples recently. Mesa Arizona, New Zealand, and some other p...

Re: How do we bridge the epistemological divide of “I know”?

I think the only way is to bear your testimony each month, maybe in different wards and say I believe or I have faith. Start a new trend.

Maybe make some videos explaining how stupid it is to say I know. Make it socially awkward.
