Re: It's not even wrong

[Apologist Hat ON] There was no other option for Nephi than to kill Laban, If Laban had not been killed, He would have pursued Nephi and his brothers and killed them. This was just pre-emptive self defense. Besides, important lessons were taught here about how important the scriptures are. Without t...

Annotated Book of Mormon
Just want to let you know I am enjoying the annotated BoM site. Especially the captcha asking to identify which animal is not a real horse. :lol:

Re: One hour church

Yes, yes, the rumors are true! My ward is piloting 1 hour church and it is magnificent and glorious! Whoever received the revelation to pilot this is a true messenger from God! This same pilot program is also testing sacrament wine, no garments, and 1% tithing. #TenderPilotMercy! I'm in, please hel...

Re: Rough Sunday

Linked, Solidarity. I still teach SS (course 12) this is only to keep DW happy. I think if I were to ask her, she would say I should give up my calling. I would love to just take her at her word and do that, but it would raise eyebrows. Then what? If I refuse to take another calling then the microsc...

Re: One hour church

As someone in Arizona, it sounds great, but I doubt it. No rumors of One Hour Church have circulated around my ward. Granted, I am not in a bishopric, so perhaps such a delightful idea has not yet reached me. Also in AZ and hearing nothing about this. I think if a ward were indeed piloting this, th...

Re: How do I teach primary?

Well... You could always teach the real truth about the BoM and get yourself fired. Start teaching about magic rocks and hats, and see how long you last? :shock: :lol: Oh its defiantly crossed my mind!

Re: How do I teach primary?

I'm with you on the horrible lesson guides. I used to enjoy reading through lesson manuals, I thought they had a lot of good information. After a broken shelf they are just insidious. Questions like "How do the testimonies of the 3 and 8 witnesses strengthen your testimony?" are so leading, they ar...

Re: How do I teach primary?

So I am dredging this old thread up again, because I am still teaching. Its now a Sunday school class, not primary anymore. I didn't have too much trouble last year, due to the new schedule I only have to teach once a month. When its my turn, I usually start late and let the kids talk about their we...

Re: Bizarre, Paranoid Fantasies

Hey Slavereeno, sorry if my post made you feel gaslit because I called your reality a bizarre, paranoid fantasy. I didn't mean to do that; in my head I covered the idea that in our situation those fantasies are not far from reality. Like when my dad told me I must have something weighing on me to h...

Re: Missed Tithing Settlement

We never signed up on the list on the bishop's door. And we assiduously ignored the text messages from the executive secretary inviting us to attend. Our bishop is a long time friend who does not know my actual faith, and it is unlikely to improve anyone's life by letting his know. I suspect that h...

Re: Missed Tithing Settlement

If you don't hear anything in the near future, then yes, the bishop will just declare for you. I don't remember what the deadline for the bishop to send the status report to HQ is, but If my tiny fluffy brain remembers correctly, it's not Dec. 31st, it's some time in the "new year." You could still...

Missed Tithing Settlement

So DW and I never received any kind of invitation to tithing settlement this year. So we never went. We missed the announcement if there was one and nobody every sent a text, email or other communication to us personally or as part of a group. I am not looking this gift horse in the mouth, but anyon...

Observation #6: Most common question

Another thread sparked this one. Nowadays nobody really wants to engage in a conversation about church stuff after the first discussion about it, but when I first disclosed, the most common questions was this: "Can you just give me one example of something that you think shows the church is not what...

I think you should start a thread slaver, so we can NOM-Crowd-Source answers to all of those questions/statements. :D (Some of them are pretty dam bizarre...) Which is dumb, because the one thing I've learned is that Mormons are terrified of the evidence and the last thing they want to do is get in...
