General Conference Review Podcast

Bill Reel from Mormon Discussion podcast teamed up with Radio Free Mormon to do a General Conference Review. Here are the links to parts one and two, if anybody is interested. I think they do a pretty credible job of dissecting the different talks of interest. Reasonable minds may differ. Enjoy! All...

Okay. I read it.

I actually kind of liked the punch line at the end.

Thanks!

Re: Satan

I don't know that I any longer believe in a "Satan" with all the theological trappings presented by Mormonism. I believe there are good people and bad people. I also believe there are good spirits/forces and bad spirits/forces that have from time to time broken into my normal life to affect me in pe...

Satan Uses Logic and Reasoning Against Us?

Here is a quote from Elder Ulisses Soares in the Saturday morning session of General Conference I thought might be of interest. It appears to be his belief that Satan uses "logic and reasoning" to lead people out of the Church: In these moments of trial, the adversary—who is always on the lookout—tr...

Re: Bednar talk on missionary callings

This was a very interesting talk, but only after going beneath the banal surface. I have never encountered any RM who felt guilty that, due to circumstances beyond his or her control, did not end up serving a mission to the area originally called. I think Elder Bednar is creating this issue out of t...

Re: President Monson Closing Talk at Priesthood Session Aborted?

Priesthood sessions have been getting shorter and shorter over the past couple of years. A quick look at the video length of priesthood sessions on YouTube shows: October 2014 - 1:53 April 2015 - 1:52 October 2015 - 1:44 April 2016 - 1:30 October 2016 - 1:32 So an hour and a half is nothing new, bu...

"But from the rubble, religious paintings were rescued."

At the 1.50 mark.

So it doesn't sound like the building was actually burning when the pictures were retrieved . . .

Re: Another Whopper Told in General Conference?

At one point, crews were pulled out from inside the building as a precaution and moments later the roof collapsed, LAFD Battalion Chief Phillip Fligiel said. http://abc7.com/news/200-firefighters-battle-church-fire-in-glassell-park/834084/ I sure hope the two firefighters that were injured didn't s...

Another Whopper Told in General Conference?

Elder Bragg in the Saturday morning session of conference told a story about some firefighters who were prompted by the Light of Christ while putting out a fire at a Southern California stake center in 2015. https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2017/04/media/session_1_talk_10/5381673733001?lang=en...

Re: President Monson Closing Talk at Priesthood Session Aborted?

It was just pointed out to me that MormonLeaks published in advance the Priesthood Session speaker line-up and they show President Monson at the beginning but not at the end. So it appears that it was known in advance that President Monson would not speak at the end of Priesthood Session. This makes...

President Monson Closing Talk at Priesthood Session Aborted?

Did anybody else notice that Priesthood Session closed a full half hour early after President Monson's closing talk was apparently aborted on short notice? The first thing I noticed was Elder Uchtdorf getting up after Elder Eyring's talk. This was the point where President Monson would normally give...

Re: The Amazing, Contradicting Joseph Smith

This one was slow to start. The first 20 minutes was a comparison of science vs religion to set up scenarios where it's ok for new belief or evidence (science) to contradict old beliefs and knowledge and where it's not ok (religion). For 20 minutes I kept wondering when the list of 7 contradictions...

Re: The Amazing, Contradicting Joseph Smith

Question regarding the last podcast on Apostles seeing Jesus. You discussed Tom Phillips 2nd annointing experience, and mentioned that Tom had left the church. It's true he is no longer participating (making your statement accurate), but do we know for a fact if he has officially resigned or been e...

Thanks, Hagoth!

Episode 5 went up Sunday morning.

It is called, "Make Way for Milk Strippings."

Thanks Consiglieri, I was really missing seeing you on NOM. If anybody hasn't listened to the Adam-God podcast, you really need to check it out.

Thanks everybody for your support!

I am glad to see at least one poster hadn't heard of Radio Free Mormon before this!

Or maybe I am glad that so many already have!
