Re: The Great Mysteries

A snake with legs gave a naked woman some fruit so she'd make some clothes out of leaves then the snake got in trouble and its legs fell off.

Next question.

Re: DW Back To Church

The meetings will be 30-45 minutes. One talk, sacrament, and music (but no singing). I realize this is one of many ways that I'm not like other people but are people really that desperate to listen to a SM talk? Maybe it's really the sacrament or to see and be seen and the talk is just to make the ...

Re: DW Back To Church

Today I got a message asking if she or I would be willing to stay after to help sanitize the building for the next group. After working it out with her I told them that she would be willing to help. Then I was told that she needs to be at a meeting Saturday morning to learn what she needs to do. Th...

Re: Grrrrrrrrr

Just say, "Thanks, but no thanks." It's going to be a challenge going forward. Staying home over health concerns is a reason everyone at church can understand and get behind but that will not stop people at church from applying guilt/pressure to get people to return to meeting in person. I imagine a...

Re: What’s the future of anti-Mormonism look like?

What does the future of anti-Mormonism look like? Holding a microphone up to a DHO led first presidency. :P

Not to go off topic, but now you guys have got me wondering who would be in a DHO presidency.

Re: Elder Holland

He said that if he and his wife, Patricia, had been alive at the time of Joseph Smith’s First Vision in 1820, they would have been looking for the doctrine of temples and eternal marriage that Latter-day Saints believe was part of the resulting restoration of Jesus Christ’s church. “I would have lo...

Re: Time for another fast?

They don't have any problem whatsoever telling everyone what kind of underwear they should wear, why in the **** can't they tell their followers to wear a ******* piece of cloth over their face so we can try and avoid killing off all the high-risk folks? I"m pretty sure those same high-risk folks s...

Second, he keeps whining about government having too much power and say. This comes from a church that tells you what you can and cannot wear, what you can and cannot drink, how you spend your money, what sources of information you are to read from, etc.
He's jealous. ;)

Behold thy brother hath said, What shall we do?—for we are cast out of our synagogues, that we cannot worship our God.

Behold I say unto you, do ye suppose that ye cannot worship God save it be in your synagogues only?

Re: UT.gov: Back to Church RMN: Not Yet

Yeah, I got that email and then less than 17 hours later I got another email about several temples that are going...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

I've tracked confirmed cases and deaths in my state and the numbers are still rising exponentially. Of course we took that as a sign to open back up for business. If the numbers were growing exponentially during a near 2 month quarantine then they are about to explode mid to late May. Of course no o...

Re: SLT reporting on Shanghai temple.

The hair that is split with this story is that Nelson said that they were going to dedicate a room for multi-purpose use, meaning the room can serve as a temple. Many took that to mean that the church was going to "build" a temple in Shanghai. My guess is that Chinese officials were reacting to the ...

Re: What will church look like...after Covid-19

The reddit link is interesting and I agree with many comments made there as well. Sunday was never a day of actual rest for the Mormon church. It was a day to do lots of work for church. I finally have a testimony of the true order of the weekend! 48 real hours! Second Saturday. The ability to unwin...

Re: What will church look like...after Covid-19

My standard soapbox. The church is by the extroverts and for the extroverts. The extroverts whose social life centers around the church have probably become increasingly desperate for social interaction during the quarantine and will return as soon as they feel safe doing so... and feeling safe to r...

This is sort of a tangent, but this thread got me thinking... Who is currently driving the theology of the church, the prophet and/or apostles or the correlation department and/or the lawyers? Can Nelson and the rest of the Q15 pen a proclamation and release it to the world without first running it ...

Re: mormonism has no theology?

Even the Articles of Faith don't really represent Mormon theology accurately. They say we believe in the literal gathering of Israel. That was once true but now we only believe in the symbolic gathering of Israel. I think many orthodox Mormons would still say they believe in a literal gathering, ju...
