Re: Salt Lake Temple, Temple Square to close for 4 years

Russell Nelson, April 10th, 2019: "Time is running out!!!"

Russell Nelson, May 18th, 2019: "We're going to spend 4 years, and billions of dollars fixing up the Salt Lake temple so it will last at least another 150 years..."

Re: Have you had this experience? Care to share?

Have you had these kinds of experiences that you seem unable to explain away? Nope. Absolutely nothing that I can think of. I'm sure there's still a part of me somewhere that wants to believe in this type of magic. Why is it that it seems only an extremely tiny subset of humanity gets to experience...

Re: If Only Cartoons Were This Awesome When I Was A Kid

Hmmm...

Sounds to me like we need to get a group of UT NOMmies together and go hang out on the lawn at Usana and watch the final KISS tour.

I'm pretty sure they'll dress up their wheelchairs with leather, spikes, and maybe rockets. Should be a good time. :mrgreen:

Foot washing and kissing can be thought of as being both an exercise in humility as it was practiced in the Bible, as well as an expression of foot fetishism.
As well as a golden ticket to Super VIP MORmON heaven.

Re: What was your first NOM thought?

Here's another "NOM thought" that was quite nagging for me as a believer: The fact that in mormon theology, humans are actually much better off if they never hear about mormon ism on earth. It's going to be obvious that mormon ism is "the way" once they're dead, and they get to easily punch their ti...

Re: RMN is an extortionist

To be honest... Extortion has been LD$-Inc.'s M.O. since tithing became a requirement to enter the temple.

We just didn't realize it on the inside, and now Mr. Magic Pen Revelator is making the threats more obvious.

Pull up a (folding) chair and hang out for a while.

One of the Eternal Mantras of NOM is: Take it slow.

There are a lot of good folks around here to help us untangle years of programmed thinking. It's not easy, but it's worth it? :mrgreen:
