Re: Next "Big Thing"

As society becomes more accepting of different folks the church has to decide which of those folks it needs the most. I had a History teacher say to me once, "Women are the vessels of culture" meaning that men will bend to women's wishes. Anecdotally more men join the church for women than women joi...

Next "Big Thing"

Drumroll.... The next big, mind bending, "oh my heck" change is: Polyandry. Not the living kind, the dead kind. Think a moment--women ain't happy about a lot of things but short of ordaining women what can you do? Well, as Special Ops used to say: "Seal 'em all and let God sort 'em out"...or somethi...

Re: Is the church really free falling ?

I am in the Boise area and work at a high school and agree that LDS students are keeping their heads low. 20 years ago they were proud to be LDS, not at all now...

Re: Is the church really free falling ?

I would offer this idea, the problem is bigger than contraction the problem is becoming irrelevant, not being important, not having pull, or influence or whatever you want to call it. The church is just becoming another special interest group that can be ignored, take medical pot for example in Utah...

Re: Salt Lake Temple, Temple Square to close for 4 years

I've also heard they are going to be installing these round tubes about 25 ft high but that nobody knows why. Speculation is that they are building teleportation tubes based on the spirit's proactive discernment. Sorta like the elevator shafts. I heard they had bought all the old Star Trek transpor...

Re: A few Questions for TBM Friends and Families

Thanks for the ideas. Honestly i would not use these as "gotcha" questions but as honest questions. Another:

A few Questions for TBM Friends and Families

Simple questions. Not arguments. Just ask and wait. We have one Heavenly Father, is there more than one Heavenly Mother? Is the flip side of Eternal Family Eternal Separation? Could you get me a list of Hospitals/Clinics/Health Programs the Church runs in third world countries? Who were the very fir...

The Far, Far Harder Thing...

What if President Nelson asks the LDS to actually live the Word of Wisdom? I mean actually live it? More grains, less meat, allow mild drinks... How befuddling would it be and how would the average member react? I mean avoiding coffee, tea, smokes and booze is one thing but actually changing your di...

A literal, honest push to really live the WoW would potentially heavily damage the church.

Re: Real or really hopeful?

Fever dream. Somebody put some hours into it. The segue into "the church isn't true" is really awkward.
