Re: What happens to the Honest Mormon?

Nice to hear one brave soul, but he sounds mistaken- from the tower of Babble to the Rameumptum, the *true* church has always taught the principle that the higher the steeple on great and spacious buildings, the closer they are to God (probably so they can get better cell reception for their prayers...

Right on Angel. Happy pimo-Non believers day.
May we be mentally aware of those struggling, a believer in one another, and a relief to those who need to hear there's more than one way to family.

Big hugs to all.

Happy Fam's Day

Happy two mothers day, happy two fathers day, happy for those without kids, happy for those with kids- either their own, step, adopted, or just anyone teaching coaching supporters of young-uns. Happy for the new graduates. Happy for those without degrees - that is just fine too. Happy summer break f...

Re: Psychics & Ballards

Lol. I really hope they have evidence. I know a Mormon psychic - people pay her for prayers, essential oils, rocks, chacra? all kinds of new age posters, herbs, etc. Energy work etc? Chi / Taoist - some of that energy stuff is kind of interesting.... Somehow it is creepy from someone who is Mormon t...

Re: How to respond to believing spouse?

My family wasn't at my baptism, or my wedding, just in-laws. It makes me sick looking back. I wish my parents were part of my wedding. For graduation ceremonies, weddings, birthdays - it's not about the school they graduated from, its not about all the inlaws, its not the hospital they were born in ...

Re: Temples, temples everywhere...

Perhaps a miracle and the next guy will announce "temple" is no longer a physical building, but " spiritual " building. 1 Peter 2:5 You yourselves like living stones are being built up as a "spiritual" house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer "spirit...

Re: Conspiracy Road Trip: Creationism

I have staunch young-earth creationists in the family.

The Bible does fall apart without it.
Adam and Eve story? First death? Redeemed from that first death? What created means, made by god? Or not made, just oversee natural process?

If everyone is honest, Darwin debunked all of Christianity.

Re: From 15th to 23rd

I sometimes feel lucky to have grown up in the era I did. Aside from the obvious (not living in a war zone or subject to starvation, etc.), it seems like kids had a lot more unsupervised play in the recent past than they do now. And how would my life have been different had I carried a mobile phone...

After a reflective Easter holiday experience, I've come to realize the profound significance of my Mormon faith in my life. The themes of renewal, rebirth, and spiritual growth echoed throughout the chocolate coated celebrations resonated deeply with me, prompting a reevaluation of my beliefs and va...
