He's Lost the Spirit

I watched one of my students, who was raised Muslim but doesn't believe in Islam, eat pork in front of other Muslims and he acted like a whipped puppy. Maybe because he knew he was being judged by his peers. His behavior was interesting to me because what he was doing wasn't wrong and he knew it. Pa...

Re: Melonakos Interview with John Dehlin

I think the most fascinating parts of Melonakos' research are the Dartmouth connection and the fact that the Smith, Cowdery, Hale, Mack and Young families have deep connections in treasure digging and many of the formative elements of Mormonism. Yes. One of her weakest points in the interview was t...

I just listened to this. I'd like to nominate Hans and Brigitta Mattson to be the new prophet. He is seriously a good man.

I have so much faith that I no longer pay tithing nor ask for priesthood blessings to be healed.
Wow! You are like Joseph Smith, who after a while no longer needed his stone to know what God wanted him to do! Me, I still need my stone. ;)

Re: Senior Mission Pressure

The message was that BECAUSE they were on their mission none of their family left the church or got divorced. BECAUSE they were on their mission, two of their grandchildren were just missed by a car that certainly would have hit and killed them without the added blessing of grandparents on a missio...

Re: Influx in Revelation?

Counter point: Don't pay tithes and offerings, live better because you have money to do the things you never could. Don't attend the temple more, live better because you have so many more weekends to do things you actually want to do. I actually believe in the last one... love and serve others and y...

Re: "I already knew it was true"

They are anxious that their entire lives are going to fall apart because they are not receiving an answer, and then when their minds grasp onto this idea, "You already knew it was true" they feel a huge sense of relief because this "testimony" is required for them to have any hope of getting married...

A recent convert piped up and suggested we let them pass the sacrament. My old friend the former HPGL was there and looked at me and said quite clearly, "be careful!" So I said, "no, I don't think I'll be careful,"
Love this! Wish I had the cahones to this kind of thing a little more often.

Re: Sam and Patty Young's testimonies

I really love this part: Today, Sam is being judged by a handbook, not by his heart, his righteous desires, or his good fruits. But on the final judgment day I am not worried about Sam standing before the Lord . Whatever decision you make today can and will be overruled by our Savior. I loved that ...

Here's the thing with resignation. It means more to you than it does to the church, ex wife, or bishop. Will anyone care if you resign? No. You're already out of the fold so many expect and hope you would to make their life easier.

If it brings closure than do it.
Yes.

At one time I was the Secretary in the mission office because I can type like a bat out of hell.

The Tribune articles made me feel sadness and disappointment.

Such a "youthful idea" has been encoura...
