Re: Scientology on Mormon Stories

I saw Chris Shelton on many other Youtube Channels. I like how all the former members of various cults are getting together to compare notes. New friendships are being made through this. I have enjoyed all the Chris Shelton videos I have seen so far. What I find most sad is that Chris received very ...

Re: Maybe it’d be nice if everyone posted a very short intro who they are

I decided I’d had enough, after 7 years of shoutingmatches and sobbingparties. Going on Mormonstories (705) really made my ex realize I wanted out, needed out. So I took a Church-sabbatical of a year. After that year she called for a divorce. Turned out she’d already had a boyfriend for years.... A...

Re: Whats good on netflix?

I just finished El Camino. I liked the ending and I appreciate the sacrifice his friends made for him in the beginning to get away. In my line of work I have seen that there really is a code among thieves. There was a scene near the end with the strippers/cocaine when they were referencing Brigham ...

Re: Whats good on netflix?

THE I - LAND is a wonderful mini series with twists and turns. I may have to watch it again just see it from a different perspective. I really wanted to like this show, but the acting in the first episode was so HORRIBLE I just couldn't continue. Maybe I will give it another chance. I think it gets...

Re: Whats good on netflix?

El Camino I binge watched breaking bad a few years ago and loved it. I also liked Better call Saul which was a prequel to Breaking Bad. I always wanted them to make at least a mini series for what happened to Jessie Pinkman after Breaking Bad. El Camino is a Jessie Pinkman movie that takes place RIG...

Re: Dating and Pornography - Ensign 10/19

The church talks about Porn a little too much in their articles. This creates an awkward environment for the teenagers and the young single adults. As a Mormon guy you are expected to be perfect and stay away from anything remotely sexual. The problem is everything around the young Mormon guy is goi...

Re: Ultimatemordecai Youtube

Comparing LDS to JW is like comparing pancakes to waffles. They are SOOOOOOO similar.

I do enjoy hearing Michael's stories and his insights with his personal bible studies. Michael is reading the Bible without the lens of a religion telling him how to believe.

Ultimatemordecai Youtube

I just wanted to give a shout out to a youtube channel I have been following for the past little bit. I have been enjoying some of the videos of a man named Michael Lehre. His youtube channel is Ultimatemordecai. Michael was once a very devoted Jehovah's Witness. He Authored a book telling of his li...

Re: How do atheists find their car keys?

It was these moments that had me decide that I was not truly agnostic or Atheist though I did have my moments have self identifying as such. I had my moments of stress with my work. I would find myself praying at work. I would pray before work. It eases the tension. Even if there was no god a prayer...

Re: Help with outing myself?

So I haven’t been able to talk with my parents at all, but I have spoken with my mother in law a bit. She outright asked me if I ever get to go to church anymore (she knows DH doesn’t go). I said “not really, but that’s ok”. She said it wasn’t ok. I told her I “have a hard time with some of the stu...

Re: Is NOM really "middle way" to any extent anymore?

I feel like the last few years of the first NOM it was no longer a middle way site. It turned into a website meant for former believers to rant and get advice on how to manage relationships with friends and family who were still TBM. I feel that NOM is one of many sites someone can use whether they ...

Re: Will I fall off the planet?

I feel that is why I am reconnecting here once again as a place to vent and bounce off ideas from everyone when needed. I increasingly believe that the most important function of NOM is helping people learn to live happily with the believers in their life. Your post is amusing, but would likely fal...

Re: Will I fall off the planet?

I was honestly just using the flat earth belief as a tongue in cheek metaphor. I watched the Behind The Curve Documentary. I will say that I am still a round earth believer because I trust the documented videos and pictures taken by the Space programs all over the world. I will say that I enjoyed th...

{with my face overly close to the microphone breathing soooo deeeeply} I would like to bare my testimony I know the earth is flat. I know the book of flat is true. I know that the founding members of the flat earth society were right. I know that our current leaders should be followed because he kno...

Re: Miracle 3 day newspaper

I heard the story of the newspapers traveling far distances in a short few days in Sunday School years ago. I have also heard stories of extremely well off Christian church pastures leaving their position to join the LDS church after reading the book of mormon. I heard the story of a man in charge o...

Return of Red Crown

Hi everyone. I used to sometimes post on the old Nom and the staylds forums. It has been quite the faith Journey. I still have Mormon friends and Mormon family. I no longer self identify as Mormon. I will keep my name on record for now. I have attended other deNOMinations and am on record with those...
