Baptismal confirmation and priesthood

Why does a person with the MP have to do a confirmation after a person is baptized (with the AP)? Why can’t someone with AP do it?

Re: 6 months...

It’s been really good for me not to be attending in person as it has significantly reduced my Sunday church anxiety. However, I’m not so sure it’s reduced the spousehold anxiety as family home church has replaced physical worship. Sister R likes to participate with her family gathering which is ok ...

Temples

We have been taught growing up that one of the first temples was used in the days of Moses. They had a nomadic temple in the desert. Fast forward to today, the church continues to put millions of dollars into building temples. These temples are used to conduct rituals, but have little value for the ...

Re: RFM Annihilates Mormon Egyptologist Kerry Muhlestein a TOTAL Wipe Out!!!

I haven’t finished listening to all of it yet, and I’m trying to be realistic on this topic. Realities: 1) Few TBMs care about this and few will ever hear about it. 2) Of the few TBMs that will even hear what is going on with the BoA and Gee and M...most will 100 percent side with Gee and M... becau...

Does anyone know if the Nelson’s have a pool? :lol:

Elder Giancarlo just got off his mission and needs a job.
The answer is Yes. The President lives at the Eagle Gate apartments. Top floor I believe.
It is a luxury apartment complex with an indoor pool.

Re: Temple changes

Looks like the church sent an email announcing that folks can submit names for the temple prayer rolls online. Before you get excited about submitting Boaty McBoatface, you have to log into your church account first. Exactly which God skill does God use to read the names on the rolls of the temple?...

Re: Petition regarding BYU

So what exactly happens if thousands of people sign the petition?
How will BYU be more like BYU? Is the idea that BYU will turn into BYUI?

Re: Dad allegedly chokes son for refusing to serve a mission

I don't want to take away from the sheer family tragedy going on here. It's a bad situation. My terrible thought is that it sounds like an episode of "Seinfeld" or "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", but with LDS characters. As long as I'm already going to Hell for pride and a lack of compassion i...

Re: LDS Church proposes new community near future Tooele Valley Temple

And instead they want to annex the temple lot area into Tooele, instead of rezoning Erda. More than one way to skin a cat. Interesting. Is there any publicly available documentation regarding said annexation? Petition to annex is mentioned at the end of this: https://www.deseret.com/faith/2020/8/14...

Re: Temple changes

From what I understand a new addition to the garment will be added. Because God is a God of plagues and curses, a face mask will now be worn at all times except while showering. It will have the mark of the smile 😊 on the mask, which meaning can only be found at the veil. Those who are general autho...

After it was reported by Fox News that Stake Presidents we’re trying to place unnecessary influence on the members, I’m happy the church did the right thing.

Re: Usefulness of Prophets, Seers, and Revelators

I thought the title said “Uselessness” at first. My assessment is they have been pretty useless during the pandemic. Sure, they are all old and hiding out from the real world.
For me, I’ve rather enjoyed a break from them. I’m not complaining.
