Church reportedly deleted receivables at EPA

More and more details are emerging from the $124 billion EPA bombshell... apparently, Lars Nielsen has provided the IRS with documents showing how EPA had deleted multiple receivables which makes where the payments went untraceable. Good grief, this is 'dark money' behavior and how corporations like...

I'm confused

Russell Nelson gets up in GC and says Joseph Smith organized the church in 1830, however, according to the essay on the 4 different accounts of the 'first vision', Smith didn't even tell anyone about it until 1832 which was the only account of him seeing God and Christ, thus, how could the church ha...

Holland in GC: 'we must do all we can for the poor and poverty-stricken'

As $124 billion sits in an Ensign Peak Peak Advisors account and Neil Andersen tells Zimbabwe's president we are not a rich church and thus aren't able to assist in developing clean water or digging/constructing wells. Simply incredible. There is no shame with these guys at the top nor end to the hy...

Re: Conference What Will The Prophet Say

Wonder how the 'church' is doing with its stock portfolio since the market is down 35%? $124B X 35% is $43.4 billion widow mites... that's a boatload of money to take a hit with so far. I suspect we'll hear at least one talk on the importance of giving 10% of your income to a real estate corporation...

Re: Honor Code clarified (?)

Simple... they're trying to win the loyalty and praise of the gay student population in order to maintain their student loans and grants at current levels and preventing a rebellion/exit of a large demographic of students while making it look to the heterosexual/traditional TBM students like they're...

Re: Leaked 2013 Uchtdorf Faith Crisis Report

Kind of pisses me off. Rather than confront these issues directly in General Conference or the dozens of talks they give each year, they instead try to demonize us and de-legitimize our issues. Freakin’ cowards. Most large corporations suffer from the same thing. Those in charge never get into the ...

I would offer the counter in that we can no the truthfulness of the church exactly because of human behavior. Or more specifically, how it manages human behavior. We know humans.

1%, 5%, 10%... it's irrelevant once you become familiar with and recognize/understand that these 'churches' are big businesses masquerading as a religion with billions at their disposal while enjoying tax-exempt status. 🤣 At that point, it becomes easy to donate what you can directly to charities su...
