Re: The 'Zina' Principle.

Yes, the Old Testament also treats women like property, slut-shames and has an obsession with their "uncleanliness." Without pharmaceuticals that is what is necessary to survive otherwise you get possessed. Brigham Young excusing wife snatching by being overcome with the spirit or the power of the ...

Re: The 'Zina' Principle.

Does this conflict with what is written in the Bible? King James Version 24 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, an...

Re: One more thread severed: ministering

From what I have read in Exodus, Moses along with the Israelites killed many people to hide their relationship with God. The Egyptians, the lambs, the Israelites, even Joshua, Aaron, Miriam, Caleb, and Moses killed. There were children doing burnings, people spreading sexual diseases, cheaters attra...

Re: Church Member Records

Getting profiled is so annoying, on the same level as stalking. Online records or communication ruin privacy or rather our sacred personal journey. In the same way that computers allow people to track investments or finances, people with access to your information can get others to fight against you...

Re: One more thread severed: ministering

Do you think most people are good or most people are bad? I read the scriptures alone on Saturdays, mostly the Old Testament because it's starting to make sense now that I am in my thirties. I have a desire to share what I learn or what I have questions about yet there isn't anyone around to talk to...

Re: TIL: Nauvoo Expositor Is Part of 7th Grade Utah History

There are a couple quick highlights I recall in the Nauvoo Expositor that stand out to me:
1. The courts in a republic change hearing dates without notice to protect the rich or empowered.
2. Property sold higher than the purchase price without an increase in industry causes societal collapse.

Re: Is a community garden at every church possible?

When I was a child, I used to love to open the church door and smell the aroma of baked cinnamon buns, bacon, hamburgers, and occasionally, full Christmas dinners complete with turkeys, hams, and all the fixins. Every table under the stage would be set up, and occasionally neighbors who weren't afr...

Re: Them

Growing up out East there was a community center with a pool. At this gathering place neighbors would meet to discuss local issues, hold parties, or enjoy each others' talents. There was even a time that our church building in Virginia was abandoned because there was a disease in the air ducts. We h...

Re: Your tithing dollars at work!

This is NOT the United Order nor an insult to the currently existing economic structures or power hierarchies. College/University in the commonly understood sense would not be hindered.

Re: Your tithing dollars at work!

To balance the haves with the have-nots I would explain that supporting the homeless provides greater security, the revenue returns dividends, having a third-party handle court or corrections responsibilities engenders peace at home, or publishing forums, reddit, news, or edutainment encourages kno...

Re: Mom would have been a great bishop!

What makes a great bishop?

To me the members doing their ministering, canning, callings, or personal development is the most critical part in the church.

What the bishop does is secondary.

Re: Your tithing dollars at work!

No, I am seeking to reward local homeowners that want to sell so others around them can buy their place to use as community centers that act as halfway houses. What about zoning laws or neighbors that may not want to live next to a half way house/community center? [...] So what do we do to balance ...

We can do this on our own. I have mentioned a college subsidized by HOA yet there is so much more. When members collateralize their own assets to invest in each other without bankers nor businessmen there are no salaries nor services charges to cause entropy. By HOA, you’re referring to a Home Owne...

Re: What's up with the "countenance" concept?

There is something to be said regarding countenances. When a person sins their behavior changes, or rather their spirit that moves them was distracted elsewhere since the last time you observed them so they are not interacting with you on the same conscious level.
