Re: Just got back from the new endowment Powerpoint presentation

I’m just finishing up Friedman’s book “Who Wrote the Bible”. Turns out Elohim and YHWH (Jehovah) are THE SAME PERSON! They are from different sources for the Torah (Pentateuch). The E source used Elohim for God, and the J source used Jehovah, which gets translated to LORD most of the time in the KJV...

Re: Missionary name badges

Maybe I dodged a bullet, but we were not allowed to where name tags in Chile in the mid 1970's. It had something to do with the preceding regime (Allende) and uniforms his followers wore. Seemed they had a similar name tag, and with the new Military Dictatorship of Pinochet, after having killed Alle...

My discovery about coffee is that I'm kinda ADHD but I can focus much better with a belly full of brew. I would have expected the opposite.
There was a lady on NOM years ago that had ADHD. Her Dr perscribed coffee, and she said is much better drinking the coffee that the drugs she was on.

Re: Resign or Get Ex’d

Bill Reel's court was last night. He did an IOT interview this morning, and said that he went through a list of problems in the church, and saw more than one High Councilman's shelf start to crack. So you could go to the court, and try to bring several out with you!

Is it also possible the Stake Pres is attempting to keep a close eye on you? Or perhaps thinking this might spark re-conversion?

Re: Bishopric Brother Scheduled to Teach Chastity to Beehives

Yes, the boys may get the same lesson, even with more detail, but is it given by a WOMAN? Just picture that for a moment, a woman giving the lesson, and you'll see why a man giving it to girls is so wrong.

Re: A Theory of Revelations (Stark [1999])

While JFS was under oath during the Reed-Smoot hearings before congress, has was asked about revelation. He said ”I have never pretended to nor do I profess to have received revelations” . Later he said there had been no revelation in the church excepting the “manifesto” for at least 20 years, going...

Re: Did anyone else get this wacky survey from the church/ward?

It's your local EQP that did it. The COB has it's own survey method that does NOT use commercial non-LDS services. It is also against church rules for anybody but the COB to conduct them.

Re: Church Growth: Boy, were they wrong

While living in Georgia I had a bishop, who was actually quite a good guy, stand up in SM with his wife who was the RS pres and announce that they were done with church. They stated that they believed it to be true but that all the time they had to commit to it was ruining their family and their ma...

Re: Prayer to the ocean

That is what surfing does for me. When the waves are small, or bad shape, I still go out and call it therapy surf. Just sitting in the ocean and enjoying the peace it brings is addicting. I surfed over 100 times last year!
