Re: Technological advances BEFORE 1820?

Scientology started in 1953 and there were even more rapid technological advances since then. L. Ron Hubbard must have ushered in the real restoration.

Re: 17 new temples?

It's like a kid piling up their plate at dinnertime, "Now now Russell. Finish the temples you've announced before you announce any more."

Or, "You have to finish your vegetables (taking care of needs of the living) before you can get desert (taking care of needs of the dead)."

Petty Theft - Local law enforcement pulling someone over and demanding $20
Is that like being pestered by the executive secretary to go into tithing settlement and the bishop is happy with your tithing contributions but then hits you up to make better fast offerings?

Re: 17 new temples?

I think a part of it is that they're too afraid to spend money in any other way. They're so high off their own fumes that the money is consecrated that anything short of building temples is an unworthy use of the money.

Re: FSY and good, better, best

One of the stake leaders had the brilliant idea to make it a "missionary" trip, so all the youth had to wear missionary clothes for the entire trip. Wow. I have a hard time coming up with what leads people to think like that. Behold, my suggestion has now established that my virtue is stronger than...

Re: FSY and good, better, best

All that said, FSY straddles that fence. You've got a limited number of years for eligibility. FSY is still going to be more of the same though. One worry I have after this most recent general conference is that many activities and meetings (like FSY) will be one long high-pressure sales pitch to co...

Re: FSY and good, better, best

This reminds me of a talk Nelson gave during April 2017 general conference. This is from "Drawing the Power of Jesus Christ into Our Lives." Recently I learned of a fearless young Laurel. She was invited to participate in a statewide competition for her high school on the same evening she had commit...

But then he had to go and ruin it by adding, "and if you don't believe this, then there is nothing for you but an eternity of darkness and misery. You will be no different than the angels of Satan." He's not communicating reality, he's projecting his deepest fears onto others. He's really saying, "...

Re: End game - the great rebrand

The changes during RMN's tenure haven't been substantive, they're mostly bluster. Changing the name of a program but the program is pretty much the same. Rename some other things. Reduce some quorums but the quorum experience is the same. Change a logo I never look at. Issue a proclamation for somet...

Re: Need help with quotes abut BoM historicity

It's interesting that the Community of Christ has been much more open about this subject. A few quotes I found: 2001: The proper use of the Book of Mormon as sacred scripture has been under wide discussion in the 1970s and beyond, in part because of long-standing questions about its historicity and ...

Re: Need help with quotes abut BoM historicity

I'm not seeing/feeling a change as much as others. I interpret what Soares is saying as Joseph still translating but not doing it through study. Like if I were to translate something from Spanish to English it would be because of my knowledge of the two languages, knowledge resulting from study and ...

In the future when temples go up for sale, what would you do with one if you were to purchase it? Bed and Breakfast? Fancy reception center for all religions? Fancy mall or retail store center? Mega restaurant center with several different restaurants inside? Bass Pro Shop with a restaurant in the ...

Re: 17 new temples?

What about Capacity? We have shown that several temple announcements may have been made due to unmet demand. However of the 5 nearest temples to the announced Cleveland temple they are only open an average of 10 days a month. The two England temples are by appointment only so one would would think ...

Re: NOMference Sunday Afternoon SP 2022!!

The temple thing is out of control. The opportunity cost for the living. The already outrageous backlog.

It's like a child at dinnertime. Finish the food on your plate before piling on more.
