Re: What are you drinking right now?

A nice cup of china [green] tea. My fifth cup of the day. Full of caffeine - I think. I am a tea addict. Tea also seems to keep my mind clear when I need to study long into the night.

Re: What should you share with the Bishop?

And she was tempted to share with others what he had imparted to her? Or at least let you know that she knew what only he as bishop should have known and kept private? Whatever, it must have been very disappointing to know that he had not maintained confidentiality. We had a chat recently, the bisho...

Re: What should you share with the Bishop?

These are the scriptures that are drawn upon. As with other scriptures however, such as those which are interpreted as supporting papal infallibility, one might with a different theological eye, reach a very different conclusion. Luther did, and certainly Calvin or Zwingli. As for the confessional,...

Re: What should you share with the Bishop?

These are the scriptures that are drawn upon however. Remember that in these religious traditions, the priest is not seen as a neighbour but occupies an elevated status. The bishop is also elevated but unlike that of the priest, the position is temporary and though he may hold another calling, he ca...

Sorry for the repeated post. I am new here and I got myself into a tangle and then could not find a way of deleting one of these messages.

Re: What should you share with the Bishop?

Shower thought: I've asked this question before, and I'm sure I'll continue to ask it again... Does anyone have a scriptural reference about confession? Especially one that says I should "share" all my "sins" with my neighbor, the IT guy... Matthew 16:19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of h...

Re: #9-The Only True.....Church

So I am very early on in my post TBM life and the only thing for sure I know is that the LDS Church is not the One and Only True Church. I had a great conversation with my mom and asked her what would she do if they dropped that tagline from Sunday School/GC/RS/ECT. She said she didn't care because...

Re: The Church needs a transcendent moment

I am still awaiting a rebirth of wonder. I want something I can more wholeheartedly believe in without an approach/avoidance thing going on. If the LDS Church were to throw out or demote its more obvious falsehoods and strive for practices that would make us more loving, would we start to look a lo...
