Re: Bill Reel--Disciplinary Court is Imminent

The single dumbest thing a stake president could do is take all of his top leadership, stick them in one room behind closed doors, and give Bill Reel 60 minutes to say anything he wants to them!

RFM Interviews Bill Reel

Just got an interview up last night where Radio Free Mormon talks with Bill Reel about his upcoming disciplinary council and delves into the history of Bill's contacts with church leaders, local and general, that have led to this final showdown. https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/2018/11/radio-free...

Tithing Pays Off!

Just used Google to type in "new order Mormon." Guess what comes up first? A link to the Mormon.org website. Somebody is being busy! Money well spent!

Treasure Digging Podcast

A new RFM podcast went up yesterday titled, "Treasure Digging with Joseph Smith and John Steinbeck." I think it is a fun romp and hopefully worth a listen. I may have uncovered a nugget or two in the process. https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/2018/10/radio-free-mormon-044-treasure-digging-with-jos...

Re: Radio Free Mormon vs. Elder Oaks

Thanks for the kind words, everybody!

I find that Bill Reel does a good job of saying the things I forget to say.

And I often find myself smiling on the other end of the line as he says things so well that never even occurred to me!

All the Best!

Re: Gaslighting by the Numbers

Gaslighting by the Numbers

A new Radio Free Mormon episode just went up this morning. https://mormondiscussionpodcast.org/2018/10/radio-free-mormon-041-gaslighting-by-the-numbers/ It juxtaposes generations of general conference statements about how the church's phenomenal growth fulfills Daniel's prophecy of the stone cut out...

Re: General Conference Predictions

I think there is an off-chance President Nelson will present the Proclamation to the World on the Family as a new Official Declaration in the Doctrine and Covenants.

Or maybe even Section 139 . . .

Re: TBM wife read my priesthood page and sent notes... anyone have any insight?

I have to run, so just want to respond to your first issue about the priesthood. You are right that Alma 13 "borrows" heavily from Hebrews 7. But other than this, priesthood is an absolute non-issue in the Book of Mormon. Which is why Alma the Elder can baptize people at the waters of Mormon without...

Scribes Caused Contradictions in FV Accounts?

The first sentence of the penultimate paragraph in the second chapter of the new Saints book says this about Joseph's later accounts of his First Vision. In the years that followed, he recounted the vision more publicly, drawing on scribes who could help him better express what defied all descriptio...

Re: Elder Cook to Take on Church History Questions!

Sweet Jesus! Why do they do these kinds of things? On the one hand, I get that Elder Cook didn't actually mean to say the Savior was martyred in Carthage, Illinois. And I get the fact that somebody caught the slip, and wanted to correct it. All of this makes sense to me; so they edit it with a cut t...

Re: McKenna Bears Testimony in Bishop's Ward

BYU is appealing the order of the committee requiring them to release the audio tape.

This has the effect of putting the committee's order in abeyance during the pendency of the appeal.

Re: McKenna Bears Testimony in Bishop's Ward

Just got to work and saw the story, complete with photograph, on the MSN main page. I tried to copy it here but was unable. I did screenshot it though. The MSN webpage links to The Washington Post story that went up at 3:14 this morning. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/09/06/...
