Re: MoTab no more... it's official

A lot of the recent changes remind me in a way of how Coke tried to rebrand itself a good many years ago. Also, how fast the New Coke was rejected. Coke went back to the old name and formula. I could only imagine what would have happened to Coke if they didn't change back. Would they be where they a...

Re: NOMference Saturday morning!!

Prediction: the new schedule will be accompanied by a new lesson schedule that abandons the 4-year rotating scripture study and replaces it with prophet worship lessons. We just had that with the Teachings of the Prophets in PH and RS the last 15 some years. I sure hope you are wrong the prophet wo...

Re: Unwritten Articles of Faith

On Education: We believe in getting as much education as possible. Preferably at one of the Churches Universitys. They are ordained of God, almost as holy as a temple. Other church educational programs such as Institute, Seminary, and other similar classes are also ordained. Secular schools are run ...

Re: Major news outlets have picked up the Sam Young story

The comments on the Deseret News story are so...disappointing? Definitely to be expected but disappointing all the same. Time and time again I've seen it stated that Sam had great intentions and just went about it wrong. Exactly how does one give constructive criticism or share an idea with church ...

Hello from the Seattle area :)

At least it isn't smoky as it was last week, nor as hot.

Welcome aboard and enjoy the dialogue. Quite often, it is thought provoking, even when being on the humorous side.

Re: Proclamation on Medical Marijuana

The fact the church is going this route makes me angry. I have not used pot. I do, however, have a legitimate medical reason why marijuana would be prescribed for me. But the church, in its wisdom, has decided to make the decision for me. ARGGGGG!!!!!! They are SOOO ARROGANT! ------------------- I ...

Re: #6 I Will Tell You ........By The Holy Ghost

This being said, I did believe the church was true on some level, but I never had confirmation that the Book of Mormon was. I always thought I was the only mormon in the world who had trouble that book. If only I had the internet back then.... I am the same way. I still believe the Church is possib...

Re: Impractical, uncomfortable, and unsightly

I quit wearing my garments a long time ago. I have MS (multiple sclerosis) and heat bothers me. Here in Washington St. we are having, for us , a heat wave of sorts.

Being Authentic

From Advocate over in the Girls Camp thread -- As much as the church gives lip service to being authentic, we all know that it is just lip service and the culture doesn't bear it out. If you don't believe it, try bringing up something you struggle with in gospel doctrine on Sunday and see how it is ...

On all the ships I worked on, the Propellers were some distance from the stern. As, the rudder or rudders are directly behind the props. Depending on the ship and its purpose, the size of the propeller, the pitch, and other factors, it would be highly unlikely to be able to see a prop in most any si...

Re: Sam Young Stands Alone Against Elder Christofferson

Thank you for sharing the act of bravery on Bro. Sam Young. He is a real hero. Frankly, If I was Elder Christofferson, this morning, I would be totally ashamed of myself. For not responding to Bro. Young personally. Then again, it is what you get when you a house high on the hill with a moat. A lot ...

I was on the original NOM 1.0 board a while back. Temple experiences or more truthful, lack of them were a common thread. Perhaps, it is one reason we are here.

Yeah I thought the same thing. I guess the one question she had was about affiliating or associating with groups that were against the church.
Is she a Democrat ? Or a Liberal? :lol:

Re: Hi all really glad to find this place

Welcome aboard. May your journey be a safe and joyous one. I think the difference in services is partly due to the fact, most other churches, their pastors, priest, etc, get some sort of theological training along the way. Also training in how to organize and run a congregation. For me any more, goi...
