Re: Meeting with Bishop Tonight

I don’t know why think they reading the Book of Mormon is going to solve anything. When I read the Book of Mormon now, I see a lot of condemnation for the current church - polluting the holy church of God, grinding the faces of the poor because of their fine clothing and fine sanctuaries, pride, pr...

I'm glad it worked out so well. I was holding my breath when you said you opened up to him. Glad you won leadership roulette.

Re: Is there a new word yet?

Codge Colds? That's what that sounds like to me.

I call them Mormon or LDS. Since I haven't talked to a tbm about the church for a long time, I don't know if they'd bristle or not.

Hey, Codge! Um, Mr/Ms Colds?

4. Ask him to shave his beard.
5. Ask him to cut his hair.
I'm sure this is "ask" in the sense of "tell" or "give a command politely."

Re: LDS fireside this Sunday on "Navigating Doubts"

The whole thing falls apart once you realize the sense of danger is manufactured by the freaked-out, delusional people on the boat, and you can choose just to enjoy a swim in the calm water or wade ashore and stroll along the beach. Wait. There's a beach and a shore? Not only that, but if you stand...

Remorse for trying to find out what is really true and what is really false. Sometimes the blindness astounds me.

Re: The changing face of LDS INC under RMN...why the rush?

I think most of the changes are things that he wants, things that opinion polling has shown them would make them less unpopular, and probably money-saving measures since tithing has drastically dropped. I wonder if he would ever have more televangelism? I mean, the gen conf twice a year is exactly t...

Re: The changing face of LDS INC under RMN...why the rush?

President Nelson is just legacy building. I think this is exactly what he's doing, and he's got the courage to do it. My question would be, is there any additional change he could make that would be questioned as heretical or leading the church to apostasy? Or could he basically get away with anyth...

Probably doing what they were told.
This. We could only not wear name tags when we had permission (P days). It's rather like a prison, really.

Re: The long rumored temple changes are happening now?

. This thoughtful comment really gives me some things to think about. My understanding is that the early Christians went to the temple in Jerusalem until they were kicked out or it was destroyed. And I really think that there was no revelation from God that said to build many temples during pioneer ...

Re: The long rumored temple changes are happening now?

I've had this argument with my husband several times in the past: I've claimed that the temple has changed many times. I've told him to ask his parents. He won't do it. This will make for some interesting conversations moving forward. I really hate how the TBM answer they give to all this is "conti...

Re: Snuffer Movement Conference

I’d forgotten about Snuffer for an age. Is that movement still happening? Yep. In general, I can't imagine that Russell and Dallin could do anything to stop it. If I were truly interested in the latest news from Denver Snuffer and the Remnant movement, what is the best way to get their latest news?...

Re: Ordained minister

So am I, now. This thread inspired me to become a dudeist minister. :mrgreen: I have heard of people becoming ordained ministers for Church of the Latterday Dude . Ordination looks pretty easy. Fill out a form and they will e-mail you the certificate, and your good to go. https://dudeism.com/ordinat...
