Re: You know you're in a cult when...

. . . you're afraid to speak up about why a worldwide flood 4000 to 6000 years ago does not make sense.

There were a couple of points that I learned about from Will Bagley that Larsen didn't discuss that I think are very important.
Which Will Bagley source did these come from? It's been a while since I read Blood of the Prophets.

Binding God

Deacon Blues mentioned "St. Peter Bind Them Parchment," a magical spell that could be used to control guardian spirits. Mormonism has the notion that man can bind God as in D&C 82:10. I think it also applies to Helaman 10 when Nephi is given the sealing power. I remember being told that Bruce McConk...

Re: Temple changes

I'm thinking the idea of binding God is quite unique to Christianity, although not totally unheard of. This could call for a new thread, if anyone else is interested in exploring it. 8-) I'd like to start a new thread. I am interested in the wider world religion context. I'm also interested in how ...

Re: If you could change a scripture story...

In addition to the pastoral letters, I'd like to change the story of finding Deuteronomy in the days of Josiah which was used to eliminate the notion of a divine feminine in ancient Israel. How about changing the story of Corianton. What if instead of having sex, he had been rude to poor people or s...

Re: Who are the Sons of Perdition?

I wonder how it came about. Section 76 was dictated in 1832 in Ohio. It all hit the fan in Kirtland in 1837. The Salt Sermon was given in 1838. I don't know that the title of son of perdition was applied to the big apostates, like the 3 Witnesses or the Laws or William McLellin because they were all...

Re: Bednar debacle

The way he treats people is abhorrent. Maybe it would actually be a good thing to have him as prophet. The true face of Mormonism finally revealed. 🤔 I feel like Bednar was called by Hinckley specifically to be president someday. They knew he was young when he was made an apostle. Hinckley had to k...

Re: Bednar debacle

This is for Palerider Bednar is totally stuck on himself. Especially when he told a sister : "Sister everything I say is scripture". Not sure when he said that but it was the past 5 years for sure. It was worse than that, IMO. He reportedly said, "I am scripture!" An admittedly second hand source: ...

Re: Mormon History for Kids?

Is the most accurate way for kids to learn Mormon history still the South Park episode on Joseph Smith? I ask this because I noticed in the Church essay section that they are still trying to peddle that Urim and Thummin stuff. I believe you're right. The South Park episode is the only accurate depi...
