Re: Soaking and Jump Humping in the news

The Alpha House series on Prime had a Mormon girl who wouldn't have sex with her boyfriend, but soaking was ok, so they showed them soaking and soaking and soaking in all kinds of places and positions. Sex seems to be the recurring major theme of Mormonism, whether you're in it, out of it, or studyi...

Re: Mormon Stories about Chad Daybell

First takeaway: Mormonism sets the stage for these kinds of tragedies by telling us that continuing revelation means there is still important information coming. It puts that in the context of last days where we are told that those who are not prepared will suffer - soon. But then it leaves us hangi...

John Larsen and the handcart horror story

I thought John Larsen did a great job of telling the horror story of the handcart pioneers. I especially appreciated his observations about how you can hide a huge mistake by celebrating it as a success and turning it into an emotional youth indoctrination tool. There were a couple of points that I ...

Re: Which doubts to doubt?

Hiding In Plain Sight (remember him?) used to talk about two Jehovah's Witness families he taught on his mission (forgive me if I'm mascaraing this story HiPS). One family converted to Mormonism and the other didn't. At the LDS church on Sunday the family that converted were constantly held up as ri...

Re: Which doubts to doubt?

We should doubt the thoughts that interfere with following the true order of priesthood authority and doctrines of the church. 1: The current living prophet 2. The first presidency 3. The quorum of the twelve apostles 4. Correlated doctrine 5. Any policy or practice determined to be relevant by the...

Which doubts to doubt?

The more I think about it the concept of "doubt your doubts" the more I realize how nonsensical it is. Maybe someone can help me with understanding what the appropriate TBM take on this is be and how you can know exactly what lines you shouldn't color outside of. My immediate response is to ask, "wh...

Re: Binding God

In the words of another Latter-Day prophet: One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all, And in the darkness bind them. Joseph and Brigham were very interested in the bring them all and bind them parts. Heber C. Kimball preferred a ring in the nose to one on the fing...

Re: The Progressive Mormon Debate

I'm not listening anymore to any of these voices. I'm simply not going to listen to regular mormons, ex-mormons, progressive mormons, Trumper mormons or jack mormons. For that matter, I'm not going to jump to attention when political leaders, academics, other spiritual or religious leaders, my loca...

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: Lamanites called to Enoch Space City?

What if instead the Israelite DNA sample is incorrect? It's very possible the history of Israel and the genetic lineage has been completely lost. I don't believe that is even remotely possible. We know Israelite DNA lineages the same way we know Native American and Asian lineages - because the rema...

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

I would change most or all of the Book of Joshua (like the killing of every man, woman, child and animal stuff). I would make it like the version in the Ten Commandments when Moses/Heston stands on the mountain overlooking Canaan and says, "Now go publish peace throughout the land!" The actual vers...

Re: Who are the Sons of Perdition?

Maybe it's just an intimidation category. You don't want to be a Son of Perdition do you? Then keep praising The Man. No one knows what exactly it means to deny the Holy Ghost but some people easily interpret it as having a testimony and later concluding that it wasn't a ghost that gave you those fe...

Who are the Sons of Perdition?

As I understand it, the concept of Sons of Perdition popped up in Mormonism to create a shunning category for people who betrayed Joseph Smith. Is there any historical record of who any of these individuals are? I'm not talking about the 1/3 host of heaven and Cain, I mean the specific individuals w...

Death = Healing? Huh?

I heard most of a Saturday night (I think) conference talk that was running in the background. I'm not sure who it was but he told the story - a common conference theme these days - of giving his father a blessing, but watching him die anyway, as if the priesthood blessing had no effect at all.

What sins are worse than extra-marital sex? The sin of telling an entire segment of the population that they must be alone and never experience a sexual relationship.
