Re: Unwritten Order of Santa

Well let's see...in the temple, I remember womens to the left. Just put a vail over her face and call it good. Male elves toward front, female elves in the back. Reindeer always in front (they are the Liahona).

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...

Christian Evangelical pastors (and some LDS members) have now elevated Trump to a figure of religious worship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcdaJbURtZQ I am sorry to say that I'm not shocked, or even mildly surprised. There's a good chance I'll still be alive in 20 years. I hate to think of what...

I remember hearing about the smoothed over, missing parts. I don't remember if it was something taught, or just speculation. I do remember being taught that our bodies would be as they are now, but perfect. Those not exalted would have all parts, but reproductive parts would be nonfunctional. So tha...

I share this story as a warning. If you hold a rally like this I'm sure Russell Nelson will call upon the earth to split open and swallow up the rabble-rousers, just as Moses did with the calf-worshippers.
It would still be worth it.

Re: Why does religion exist?

Anyway, I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this subject. Like every business, religion exists to make money. $$$ Cynical? Who, Me???

I have been seeing a non lds therapist and she is shocked at some of the stuff I tell her. One good example is Bednar telling a sister in 2015 that he is scripture!!!

Re: The Branch is broke that is zero dollars !!!

I wonder how a similar ward/branch would do in Utah? Would they have some funds due to being in Utah?? Michigan vs Utah. It would be interesting to see if there is any difference.

Wonderful ideas. Cleaning service and child care would go along way to help revitalize any mom, let alone a single mom with 5 special needs kids. This last year must have been hell with covid too.

Re: Helping the church spend its money

How does money help the spiritual need? I thought all one had to do was read scriptures and pray harder, until he/she gets it right. Do her autistic kids already get services? Sounds like they have food, clothing, and shelter. Does she need transportation help? Luckily she's not in the US or she may...

Re: Saturday Sabbath

However, this seem to directly contradict the idea of a "day of rest." On that note, I'm heading out to the wilderness to worship and encourage you to do the same....
