Re: Should I get a Priesthood blessing?

First, I am sorry to hear about your vision. I sincerely hope that you do fully recover as soon as possible! Regarding the priesthood blessing, I would try to hear it as your daughter saying she loves you and cares for you and wants to help you, and respond as though that's what she said. Something ...

Re: 'Do you think I could ever be happy outside of the church?'

We would have to clarify that the 90 day challenge would be centered around giving up the organizational aspect of the Mormon church and not God. Any TBM confident in their belief in God should be able to continue that relationship. If they can’t then the 90 challenge has exposed where their true b...

Re: 'Do you think I could ever be happy outside of the church?'

It sounds like it’s time to negotiate a joint sabbatical or 90 day No Mo challenge. Ask her to give you a 90 day test run to see if she CAN be happy outside of the church. After 90 days, if she isn’t happy then she can return. But it has to be 90 days out. No garments, no attendance, no BoM reading...

Re: Forced Turning Point

Thanks for the updates! May I suggest you skip the painting and go with a quilt or something like minded from the relief society? Or go with a cheap cork board and pin up drawings from the primary kids? Or a white board with YM/YW planned activity notes and timelines? I really like this idea. Cards...

I'll make you a quilt. I've made a few wall hangings. The first could be called, "The Godhead."

As for media fasts... how else are we supposed to rehearse our doubts with other doubters? Should we do it in Sunday School instead?

Re: The Lords Battalion

Nonetheless, I think pulling RR in to fix some of the big church problems would provide leaders a new perspective. I second the motion to call RR as a bishop! One of my biggest pet peeves is how they treat grown men (and women) who look at porn. A friend of my wife would her things like “I made my ...

Re: Forced Turning Point

So how’s the new bishop’s office? Do you at least get a new chair? Stock up on fabreeze because if it’s like any I’ve been in, the priest quorum funky smell never leaves. Not as bad as the mother’s lounge or kitchen, but clearly a bishops office is on the “top 5 most smelly rooms in a Mormon chapel...

Re: Forced Turning Point

Any updates Graey? How was your first Sunday? First Sunday was... surreal. When I was asked to share my "testimony" I spoke about our ward family, about service, and quoted the two great commandments in Matthew 22 and serve neighbor serve God in Matthew 25. I did not mentioned RMN, I did not mentio...

Re: Forced Turning Point

It should be obvious! When Graey was set apart as a Bishop the Spirit(TM) moved Graey to immediately see the error in his ways and he has sworn to never visit the vile pit of despair that is Newordermormon.net. On the contrary, the Spirit(TM) confirmed to me that this is the only place I have to go...

Re: I may have just seen a heavenly visitor??

Whatever you do, do NOT gouge your own eyes out! Even if you've seen something beautiful since then, your mind will always recall garment-gate as the reason for your blindness. You'll never be able to let it go or see anything else to replace it.

Re: Forced Turning Point

I'm really not big on titles. I'll have to work hard at getting people to drop the bishop thing. The hardest part for me was calling somebody and then introducing myself a "Bishop New Name" I don't know if you eventually get used to it, but whenever my DW says "bishop" my stomach knots up. If you'd...

Re: Forced Turning Point

On reflection years later, I see the right way to handle the problem would have been to tell the YM that the SP would be asking about it, and that if he could forgo the deed for a week or so, he could answer in the negative when asked if he did! This is a good thought. We have a few boys who will r...

Re: Forced Turning Point

The question needs to be asked: Bishop G, did you specifically tell your bishop or SP that you were not a full tither or did you just finesse that particular question? I was under the impression that it was more of a finessed response to the temple rec tithing question, not an outright declaration....
