But of course if your basic premise is God doesn’t reveal things to people then you have to go to your plan B whatever that is for you. I don't go for ancient wisdom I don't believe just 'cos ideas are...

You'd have to ask Calvin Grondahl and Orson Card as they wrote the definitive saintspeak: the Mormon dictionary. I remember laughing through the volume.

Re: Feeling anxious about new YM/YW announcement

But I had to cut off the activation efforts and similar group pressures. In your case set it up that your rules supersede the claims of the ...

He's not an archaeologist.

His degree is in psychology. He has a master's in egyptology. He is employed in the religious studies department.

He's a hack.

Exed even though i wouldnt attend. My family to whom the exing would matter all know me and know the grounds for my exing reflect on the churchs stupidity, not me. If I resign, it's on me.

Re: Discovering Church Discipline

I lived through the era where the aaronic priesthood was asked to leave the opening exercises while the Melchizidek priesthood remained behind briefly. And the public shaming of the disciplined began among the adults.

Re: Shoot the messenger

They don't want the members verifying anything the brethren didn't tell them. Follow the prophet is the mantra

Most members haven't heard of sam young or bill reel and don't care about their issues.

Re: Bill Reel gets disciplinary hearing - can't see that ending without him being excommunicated

Why can't the church allow for an open discussion and dialogue? There is a prophet talking to/for God at the top. Therefore there is nothing to discuss. If it's true it will hold up to scrutiny! If they are apostles, they will hold up to scrutiny! Remember that propphet fella? Scrutiny doesn't matt...
