Re: Hans and Brigitta Mattson, 2nd and 3rd Witnesses for the 2nd Anointing

If you listen carefully there is a hint about it in the temple endowment about how you are currently anointed "only to become such," but the day may come when you will be called up and anointed with the whole enchilada. I always thought that was supposed to happen in the afterlife, but I guess it m...

Re: Has anyone purchased Jennifer Finlayson Fife's online courses?

Yes, we've purchased and yes she's good. She doesn't preach a traditional LDS perspective. Her approach seems data driven. I would recommend her program to anyone, regardless of their religious orientation or affiliation. Is JFF able to unwind the common issues that arise from growing up in a highl...

Re: Victory, BOM Musical on Broadway NYC

Congrats on the anniversary!

Haven't seen it yet but plan to eventually.

The rock in my hat tells me your wife and family will be out in the future.

PS. If you see Enough tell her I said hi and we miss her here.

Re: The Toxic Teachings of Henry J. Eyring

Yeah, this was a head shaker! I saw it posted earlier on MSP FB and looked at the cluster f rolling on the comments for the BYUI meme they posted of "Am I true?!!" They shut it down. Red Ryder, I am glad we didn't have this crazy $#!+ when we were there at Rick's. Or maybe they did, I really didn't...

Re: The Toxic Teachings of Henry J. Eyring

“Whenever I am tempted to doubt the Church or any of its leaders, past or present, I need only to reevaluate my own spiritual state,” President Eyring said. “I ask myself the question, ‘Am I true?’” As a matter of fact Henry, I am.

Re: General Conference Predictions

Wasn't Rough Stone Rolling the first attempt to counteract the internet Mormonism narrative? Wasn't Bushman tapped to write it by the FP?

Saints is just another version of RSR. Only dumber.

Re: Hans and Brigitta Mattson, 2nd and 3rd Witnesses for the 2nd Anointing

Has it dropped to the MS podcast que yet? There was a time in the late 1880- 1890's when the 2nd anointings were published in the salt lake newspapers. I have no idea why or when the modern church made this a secret ordinance. It's clearly never been a secret. What gets me is that they didn't talk a...

Re: General Conference Predictions

2 hour church ideas?

SM/SS/3H = 40/40/40?

SM/SS/3H = 60/30/30?

SM/2H = 60/60?

SM/Sitting in my car = 60/60?

Re: General Conference Predictions

The church will no longer solemnize civil marriages in the temple. Brent, I thought the church stopped doing that several years ago. Maybe I’m not understanding fully, but the church used to allow you to be married civilly, for time only in the temple. I think he's alluding to the temple ceremony a...

Re: The Toxic Teachings of Henry J. Eyring

This totally makes sense. If you are feeling symptoms, the church has to convince you that YOU are continually sick so THEY can continually provide the cure. That's the only way THEY stay relevant. I'll share a personal experience here. At age 24, I was stressed out beyond my normal stress levels. I...

Re: General Conference Predictions

I'd be happy to attend church for 8 hours on a Sunday if they would change the 24/7 garments to temple only.

Sleeping naked would no longer be a sin! :lol:

I'm not sure if they will come after me too (because my name is public) but if they do then I will use the awareness to bring light, as Sam did, to these sexually inappropriate and explicit one-on-one interviews that have damaged so many children and adults of our people. It's good to be back in NO...

Hey hey hey. I make breakfast for the family every Sunday morning including fast Sunday! The kids get dressed on their own now but I do credit that to the wife in the early years.

Anon70, I don't think you or Wonderment are the direct targets of Alas' comments. I think we've all been triggered by the Sam Young excommunication, the McKenna rape, and the church's response to all of us disillusioned members. It's emotionally exhausting. Let's remember we are all not immune to th...

Re: ...the great Robert Kirby — gave me weed

If I hear what your saying Alas, there needs to be a better human survival mechanism in place so that potential victims can be aware of bad situations and reduce the chance of being victims. I try to look at human experience as if we were animals in the wild. Responsibility plays a two part role. Th...

Welcome back Stealth!

Glad to see you back and hope your family is doing well!
