Re: Ministering, YM, EQ, and the Bishopric

The former YM president recently noted that he knew that the YM knew the right answers to all of the questions we might ask, but he was not at all convinced that they had a solid testimony to accompany those answers. And that, IMO, is one of the larger problems with church, one of the things that m...

Re: Changes For Temple Ceremonial Clothing Announced

Removing the plastic insert from the cap and the tie from the cap and veil. So the hats are going to be all droopy? Using a more durable material that is the same for the robes, cap, and sash, which helps them last longer and makes them easier to care for. Granted I'm not a weekly temple-goer but h...

Re: On Tea

While hot drinks are bad, herbs are good. It seems, according to our current cultural interpretation, that "herbs" does not apply to good old MJ but does apply to herbs used to make tea, even though that completely contradicts the preceding verse's warning about hot drinks. :? I think there's room ...

There is a green hill far away,
Made up of c-note bills,
That pays for malls and real estate,
We're aiming for one trill.

Re: Whistle Blower Files IRS Complaint

It's like having this friend where you show up to their house to find that their bookshelves are made out of old plastic grocery crates, they have an industrial wire spool for a dining room table, they're sleeping on a stained mattress that has a spring poking out of it and it's laying directly on t...

Re: New message about choosing to believe

Making sure to say "the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" instead of simply saying "the church," quoting LDS scripture, a fixation with having a "testimony," echoing elements of a talk that Bednar gave... for someone that has had a faith crisis he sure likes to frame his journey entirely ...

Re: Another big Joseph Smith blow out?

Yeah, the 200th anniversary of the First Vision is a big deal, I guess. I think the LDS Church leaders feel like they can't let go of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon and the restoring of priesthood keys and etc. Because if they let go of those things, what do they have left? Not enough to keep ...

Re: Another big Joseph Smith blow out?

A part of me thinks this extra special celebration was conjured up because Nelson realizes he won't be around for the 200th anniversary of the formation of the church on April 6, 2030 but he still wants to be the guy that threw that party.

Re: I hate to even have to ask this question

Background checks only turn out people that have already been caught. While it's a much better start than the nothing that's currently being done, the preferred solution is to stop worthiness interviews altogether. Stop them.

Re: Conversion Therapy

I would have thought that Oaks would know this does not work since he was president of BYU when they did all the awful experiments. I'm just sad. Maybe that's part of the reason they're fighting this. Similar practices occurred under Oaks' supervision and those practices are now considered illegal....

I didn't notice anything of substance. Just slight rewordings, possibly mashing up two questions into one, but overall identical to the questions before.

Re: NOMference Fall 2019 Sunday Afternoon

I guess the door to relaxing the WoW and garment use is effectively shut.

With the April 2020 conference announcement it sounds like it will run the risk of being a JS worshiping session.

Re: NOMference Fall 2019 Sunday Afternoon

"The temples are the crowning Jewel of the restoration." There is no Biblical indication that there would ever be multiple temples. The only certified temple acceptable to the Lord will be the one built in Jerusalem. All others are frauds. -100 I think that was (emphasis on was) one of the symbols ...

I guess the talk works for me if it's okay to consider the church to be Hobbiton.
