Re: Christmas, Bah! Humbug!

It’s interesting - I like Christmas more since I became non-religious and have a different perspective. Though I still enjoy some of the traditional carols and so on, I look at it now as more of a seasonal celebration of the solstice and looking forward to the renewal of Spring. Kind of back to its ...

Re: My son is posting anti information on FB now.

There’s not much you can, or probably should,do. It sounds like you’ve already mentioned that it may cause problems. Other than that, they are adults and should be responsible for any blow back. My concern is that the issue could start to become a problem between you and them, and I don’t think you ...

Re: Whistle Blower Files IRS Complaint

This does not surprise me at all. Only the amount, which is even more than I would have figured, raises my eyebrows.

Re: Is this the Church’s version of The Body Issue?

Yeah, that kindness message seems a bit like, "feel free to pass judgements on people you don't know about their personal style, but make sure you're kind while you do it."

I almost can’t believe this is true. Has anyone heard anything else about it?

NHP is next on the excommunication list!
That was my first thought after reading it (other than how it was spot on, of course). If she wasn't before, I bet she is now.

Re: "Eternal Truths" are just ideas

5. Read my manifesto every day and make your home a training center to my ideas, philosophy, and eternal truths. You can find it online at Churchofthesandwich.org. I read this JUST as I'm eating a sandwich! I'm sure it's a sign and I'm ready to sign up! I don't have one single pair of blue shorts t...

Re: Hook, line and creamer

Having not seen a conference session for years until this weekend, I was really struck by just how dry, detached, and perfunctory the talks were. Not only did they not address people's real concerns both about the church and the world, but there was very little sense of, well, love. They mostly seem...

Re: General NOMfrence Sunday Afternoon!!!

All that building and renovating, the church must be somewhat still flush with cash. Either that, or tithing settle should be very interesting for folks this year. There are estimates they are worth upwards of 500 billion... they'll never hurt for cash. Wow. You would think a lot of good in the wor...

Re: General NOMfrence Sunday Afternoon!!!

Well Rasband's talk was rather a bit of fear-mongering. But like Hagoth said, without the context of belief these talks are really basic and substance-free, like children's stories.

Of course Satan as boogie-man is, as always, a way to externalize "bad" decisions which are of course, our own.

With obedience we can defend against him!

I just caught some of Bednar's talk- I think he may be inadvertently encouraging a lot of "uncorrelated" learning and personal revelation.
That was my take, too!

Re: General NOMfrence Sunday Afternoon!!!

What strikes me a lot about this is that, after all this time that I have been away from it, these talks are all exactly the same type of thing they were before I left. It's all rehash and basic stuff. "Don't talk about what happens in temples", is a talk that's been done innumerable times, and yet ...

Re: General NOMfrence Sunday Afternoon!!!

So, the logical conclusion of this movement to home churching is that you really don't need to go on Sunday anymore, I guess. I can see the upside to this.

Or, he's basically saying that you can't expect THEM to teach you the right way. (Only to correct you when you don't get it right.)
