Re: A New Theistic Argument

Something fun I read the other day about this theistic argument:
If god is going to go to all the trouble it takes to make it look like they don't exist, It's only polite to believe them.

Re: Best part of conference?

I was a little surprised to hear Nelson state that baptism will get you into the Celestial Kingdom but only temple covenants and marriage would get you "Exaltation" within the Celestial Kingdom. I've never read that baptism alone, would get you into the CK. I've also never heard, or read that makin...

Re: Conspiracy Road Trip: Creationism

Re: NOMference Spring 2024 Sat afternoon!!!

Serious question. Does anyone believe that the church will ever move on from saying the word "covenant" 33 times per hour? Someone needs to do a word-analysis thingy on the LD$-Inc. website. I wouldn't be surprised if use of that word has gone up significantly during the reign of Rusty Nel. Cook. I...

Re: The Mormon church is looking to crack down on... garments?!

Here's the current temple recommend spiel: The temple garment is a reminder of covenants made in the temple and, when worn properly throughout life, will serve as a protection against temptation and evil. The garment should be worn beneath the outer clothing. It should not be removed for activities...

Re: Would you do it all over?

This is a tough one.

There are definitely things in my life related to MORmONism that I would like to "Go Away!"

But... Would I want to give up all of the good in my life for a "Do-Over?"

In a way, this is a dilemma I'm glad I don't have to deal with. :ugeek:

I wish that they would double down on the crazy and fully embrace it to push out all the sane people. Maybe reinstate polygamy. Or canonize "Visions of Glory". Or ban meat again.
