Re: In the rubble of collapsed apologetics

I think apologetics will continue to evolve rather than go away. It feels like it is going in circles with little direction. I think this confusion trend will continue for a while, though. There seems to be less direction from church leaders….maybe that is on purpose. It tried to change to be cool t...

Re: Fight The New Drug

To religion a drug is anything that could possibly move the person away from being dependent on the religion.
I don’t think porn is a new drug.
Remember how totally bad rock and roll was back in the 1950’s? It would drive you to Satan for sure.

Re: Elder Gong: “Please don’t post that photo…”

I have a differing view point than some….I think Gong is just needing time and space to work this all out in his mind. He didn’t ask for a gay son, and has likely never had to deal with this type of a situation. Give him time and I think he will be much different than Oaks. I have been quite progres...

Big Love

I’ve started watching the HBO series Big Love. I am finding it rather funny. Many things are really spot on as far as the church and polygamy are concerned. I know it’s a few years old, but it has been numerous to watch the over zealous Mormon neighbors, the Viagra to keep up with his wives, the dic...

I think he was buried right next to Elvis….wait… Elvis isn’t dead either. Maybe John and Elvis are roaming the world together?

Re: Konfession Time!

Any news from Kish lately? I confess that I am scared to move on. I have been a NOM since at least 2013… If I mentioned anything to anyone, I would get shut down, so I have hid in my own little cave for a long time. I feel good that I only attended church twice last year….it was a good year. This pa...

Re: Fraudulent Baptisms

I was in a mission somewhere south of the US border. I was a junior companion in an area for 5-6 months. We worked hard, but struggled to get many baptisms. Each month we received a mission newsletter that highlighted the highest baptizing companionship. Most were baptizing more than 30 people/ mont...

Re: Willie-Martin testimony

John Larsen had a fantastic discussion about this on a recent Mormon Stories. He tells of how much a cluster this really was. Church leaders had little regard for the people pulling the hand carts and planning was very poor. A much different story than what the church history portrays.

Re: New Gospel Topic on BOM Geography.

I think option 2 is easier. You can talk about how using gospel concepts from a Christian life can help you better address adversity…. If I were giving this talk, I would probably go off on how Satan was introduced into Christianity from Zoroastrianism/dualism, and that Satan really doesn’t exist…oo...

Re: Tales of Tithing Settlement

Question on tithing. What percentage of each dollar armed in Utah goes to the church? For example, if I earn $1 and pay tithing on it of $.1, and then pay my kid $1 for chores, and he pays $.1, then on that same dollar, the church has earned $.2 or 20%.
