Re: Thoughts from Simon Southerton Regarding the Worldwide Fast

Simon nailed it.

This stuff is intentionally self-deceptive and destructive, I am having a hard time not getting frustrated by it.

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

Now that the church had a world-wide fast, I am going to put my garments back on, get a blessing and go lick the door handles at Walmart.

Re: Cancelling Church is PROOF that CFM was inspired

Yes, I remember that prophetic guidance as well. I think we stopped talking about it in 1983. Yes, the timing is a little off, it would have been a lot more helpful to NOT hoard wheat in #10 cans for 30 years, and instead put the money I spent of years savings in GOLD. Or even better, just tell us ...

Re: Cancelling Church is PROOF that CFM was inspired

I got a call from my father yesterday, reminding me that the Prophets have been telling us to store food, and that those prophets were right.

Re: Cancelling Church is PROOF that CFM was inspired

I completely agree with the women and the priesthood remarks. That's the problem though, there were a couple family members who were questioning things. Including women and the priesthood, but this COVID stuff has them all convinced there is something to all this. That covid is a plague to drive us ...

Cancelling Church is PROOF that CFM was inspired

Ug, Have been trying really hard to just put Mormonism out of my life as much as possible. Things have been reasonably quiet around my place and I have mostly avoided Internet Mormonism. Enter COVID-19 and now I am being inundated with "End of Days" and "Come Follow Me" is PROOF that RMN is getting ...

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...
