Re: Did Netasha Helfer-Parker get Exed?

This thing turned into a circus in a big hurry. I understand that she is at a terrible low in her life, but using a public forum (Facebook) to vent and process everything going on hasn't really helped her, in my opinion. Trying to follow some of her posts today was...interesting. The church did abso...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

Do you suddenly feel the urge to build a multi-million dollar luxury cavern in the hillside of Bainbridge Island or turn over in your sleep and say, "Melinda, I dreamt I was turning into Jfro 18 once again?" I woke up in the middle of the night and switched my default browser to Microsoft Edge and ...

Re: Forced Turning Point

I have no intention of resuming tithing payments. I may rethink fast offerings once I get a better handle on where that money is used and how much need is in the ward. If HQ catches wind and wants to release me, I'm A-OK with that. As with the rest of your NOM ward, I also sustain you as bishop. Yo...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

I had COVID back in August, but my symptoms were fairly mild at the time; just down for a couple of days. I had my first dose of the vaccine (Moderna) last week and the only thing I had was a sore arm. No other symptoms. We'll see how dose 2 goes later this month.

Re: Doubters are lazy learners!!!!!

Indeed...I was such a lazy learner that I read everything I could get my hands on, studied it, prayed, went to the Temple, and discussed it with both believers and non-believers alike until I "lazy learned" myself all the way out of the church. Just one more disparaging phrase for the "faithful" to ...

Had my first dose on Friday of last week.

Re: Missionary Life

Your alteration of that post to fit the mission life is spot on. Everything is scripted. Everything is planned. Just do as you're told (obedience) and everything will be wonderful.

They also removed the Kwaku TITS videos too... which is odd because I remember them saying how great they were for youth outreach.

Re: Still waiting on God

That's fair and I appreciate the clarification. Perhaps I am also a little sensitive to the term having had it launched at me repeatedly for 2 years in TN and KY while on my mission. This is interesting. Having been in the Bible belt, did you get the impression that most of the denominations were u...

Re: Still waiting on God

Although I am now a total non-believer, in the LDS church or in anything divine, I still take exception to the boundary maintenance exercise of referring to one group of Christians as "biblical" and excluding Mormonism from that. The interpretation of the Bible that Mormonism follows may be in the ...

Re: Still waiting on God

Referring to "biblical Christianity" as if it was some settled, monolithic, belief system seems to be folly to me.
