Re: Church says it was an "error" that their Come Follow Me manual called the black skin curse a... black skin curse

To me the really interesting part of this is that you now have church leadership openly saying that part of the Book of Mormon isn't true. That it doesn't actually mean what is there in plain text. So if we can't trust what the Book of Mormon says, then what other parts are inaccurate? Perhaps Nephi...

Re: Whoever wrote the BOM......

They did know that there were a LOT of gullible people.

They didn't know that the scam would last at least 200 years.

Re: Do You Love the Lord?

They want you to buy into their binary thinking of all of it is true or it's not!!! I have had several people try that one on me...it's either true or it's not. My response to that is that if I am forced to choose between those two options only, then the answer is pretty simple really. Because the ...

Re: Missed Tithing Settlement

God knows exactly what I did with his money. If you think that you should know, then ask him. :)

Tithing and fast offerings in kind....a lesson from sunday school

Recently in sunday school charity and helping the poor and homeless was a topic of discussion. One of the common threads in that discussion was that many members were not comfortable giving money to these individuals for fear that they would misuse it. Multiple times people made comments that these ...

I received a letter in the mail about tithing settlement with my assigned time to meet with the bishop, with instructions that if I could not make the assigned time, to contact the exec. secretary to reschedule. I can't beli...

Re: Accessing NOM at church?

So this is the message I got today when I tried to get NOM through LDS Access. Could it be that I'm looking at it too much, and they caught on?

Re: Tithing settlement

Why do you have to account to anyone for how you spend your discretionary income. Imagine for a moment if the local united way called you in at the end of the year to make sure you had given them enough money. How would you respond? Do the same thing here.

If Oaks is an example of what God is, then he is also a reason for not wanting to go where God dwells.

...like usual. If it isn't that it's a idolizations of the current prophet.

I think the reason Oaks is so publicly anti-gay is that he is worried about somebody else taking his spot in his bromance with Rusty.

Except it's not a bicentennial year...that's not until 2030, but Russ can't pass up the glory and knows he'll be dead in another 10 years, so let's move it up!
