Re: Love

I think we are commanded to love everyone. It doesn't mean you have to like them. It's often easy to love those we don't know, and harder to love those we do. I feel bad for the messenger that has to let people know they have to wear a mask in church or any public place that requires such. The angry...

Re: Fight The New Drug

Good points. Probably should keep carrots, cucumbers, and bananas behind the store counter. Have you seen some of those memes out there? Anything can be a drug. Any activity or hobby is someone's unhealthy obsession, leading to addiction and destruction. From food to plastic surgery, there is health...

Re: Elder Gong: “Please don’t post that photo…”

Good on Gong for having dinner with his son and partner. Bad on Gong for trying to hide it from social media. It's no secret. He could be such a support for other LDS members who "struggle" having LGBTQ children; a show of inclusion and acceptance of those who use their agency. It isn't like his son...

Re: “Carry Overs” into the next life?

If any adverse mentality that we have will carry over to the afterlife, what happens when the adverse mentality is a result of mortal imperfections? Example, a person live in chronic pain due to a genetic defect, say multiple sclerosis. This has resulted in an dependence on opioid painkillers to ge...

Re: Big Love

I don't get it, just like you 2bizE; But there are lots of True Believing Polygamist Mormons (TBPM's?) who are perfectly happy with their religion/lot in life. I'll bet not that many are perfectly happy. They are obedient, but I would guess few are happy. Just like a select few LDS are happy; there...

Re: Harry Reid Died

A good example of how we are told to vote our conscience......as long as your conscience agrees with the church. Let the consequence follow.

Re: What are you watching right now?

Just finished Fatma. Pretty sad. I recently watched Squid Games. I too can't stand to watch with dubbing. I have to watch in the native language with subtitles. I've started so many programs on Netflix, just to abandon them. Good shows are occasional. Luckily I'm old enough, and forget so much detai...

Re: New Year’s resolutions?

I am glad you said this, as I am a fellow hater of New Years resolutions and the commercialization of all the holidays. That is why unrepentant Grinch and Scrooge are two of my favorite people. At least in Grinch, he learns that perhaps Christmas doesn’t come from a store. But the first thing Scroo...

Re: New Hymn book announced!

Are the hymn books the same world wide? Seems they could leave the patriotic stuff in the USA books.

I remember, years ago, when the new primary songbook came out and my mom was livid that they left out Give Said the Little Stream. I thought she may leave the church. Hahahaha.

Re: New Year’s resolutions?

Dropping all, but one, streaming subscription. I have dropped most streaming subscriptions already, but must choose only one to keep. Streaming is out of control. So I'm back to paper books and CDs. Netflix is crappier by the month, I don't know which subscription I should choose because they are al...

Re: If there isn't there should be.

Should be. Wouldn't it be something if you could get a panel from the right and left to have a live debate? An actual organized event to debate the political topics that have become so toxic? Something like the old McLaughlin Group. It can get heated, but stay respectful. Give equal time to present ...

She yells out his name while making love to you!
Does she ever shout out the names of the entire Godhead?
What or whomever's name she's yelling, just be glad she is yelling. It means you're doing something right.

Re: Seven Months Down. 53 To Go.

We also had a campout with zero scouting requirements thrown in. Campfire songs, tents/hammocks, and fishing for anyone who wanted to go. Those that didn't want to fish played capture the flag. It was really a lot of fun for everyone. No F&T meeting? The only way our YW got to do a campout, other t...

Re: Seven Months Down. 53 To Go.

Other brethren that are called to young men callings (e.g. young men specialist or advisor) feel no ownership because they aren't a leader so they don't do much without being told what to do, in the best case scenario; worst case scenario and very common is they do little or nothing.

Re: Tales of Tithing Settlement

You don't need to pay tithing any more. Just quote Joseph F Smith, from the 1907 General Conference: "We expect to see the day when we will not have to ask you for one dollar of donation for any purpose... because we will have tithes sufficient in the storehouse of the Lord to pay everything that is...

Re: Seven Months Down. 53 To Go.

I have to admit that there was a time when I would have wanted my tithing report to be noted. I paid and I wanted it known that I sacrificed!!! I suspect that those who push back on you not reading their tithing reports probably paid in full and want you to know it. My eyes can't roll back far enoug...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

I don't disagree with anything you've stated. I must have misread your first post. I took it as if you were defending Trump because of a possible illness. Trumps rhetoric doesn't affect a small group of people, it affects the democracy of an entire nation. Agreed but if Trump went away quietly (he w...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

I've been blind into thinking that Trump is an idiot, a buffoon, a big loser that would eventually go away. He is actually quite smart when it comes to manipulation and lies. I have a different interpretation. I think he has severe NPD, an illness. I think his disorder is so bad that it impairs his...
