Re: Article on Early Returning Missionaries

The Lost Percent. Early Returning Missionaries. This is from a website run by believing LDS women, although liberal believers are among them. I was impressed by the compassion for early returning missionaries in this article. It points out the culty way this young man was treated followed by just i...

Re: Nice Chat with SCMC Member Today

Consig - "jump the Shark" was amazing, and in my humble opinion it was every bit as scathing as Bill's "liar liar". You called RMN a false prophet. Say what you want about Jesus Christ, but don't you dare insult the Grand Poobah. Other thought: Bill's comments in his court o love were as spot-on as ...

Why was it only Ballard and not Oaks and Eyring with Nelson?

Maybe they didn't want Eyring photographed with mouth agape.

Re: Patriarchal Blessings?

I got a 5-page bombshell. I was personally blessed under the hands of HF with priesthood power to heal. I was preordained to be a "holy disciple" which I read as "apostle" (who else is "holy", amiright?). I knew my wife in the pre-ex. My Heavenly Mother prays daily to the Father for me. I am to lead...

Re: New Gospel Topics Essay - BOM Geography

Ahem... (raising my hand) Ummmm.... Teacher? I have a question. Can you tell us the story of Zelph the White Lamanite who was known from the Rockies to the Sea? Or how about the story of Moroni burying the plates in the Hill Cumorah in New York State? Or, I know, this is a favorite, the time Joseph ...

Re: RFM Podcast on Renlund Devotional

Excellent work consig!! I wonder if you guys would consider looking at the trending of these types of talks. You have Eyring Jr's "am I True", Cook's fail with the Saints launch, Renlund, RMN's revelation talk, changes that are obviously pushed by outside pressure - there is a definite trend here to...

Sorry, it was Holland in a 1995 talk. "May I suggest that wherever possible a white shirt be worn by the deacons, teachers, and priests who handle the sacrament. For sacred ordinances in the Church we often use ceremonial clothing, and a white shirt could be seen as a gentle reminder of the white c...

Re: No one left to ex

I'd love to get ex'ed some day, but I have no following nor do they have any idea who I am. That could complicate my goal there. I'd rather get ex'ed than resign - that's for sure. For a long time I played out my Court O Love in my head. Frankly, I had a very well rehearsed speech that would have s...

Or.... Could it mean that Joseph was caught in a web from which he could not extricate himself?

I dropped in while visiting my daughter a while back. I asked to meet the Elect Lady and she came out, pulled up a chair and invited me to sit across from her for a chat. We spoke for about 30 minutes, but mostly it was her talking and me soaking it in. She was so comfortable. It felt like I was in ...

Re: BOM Origins? John Bunyan's Pilgrims Progress and Holy War

I would postulate, that during writing of the BOM, the story for a given day was based on what JS read the evening before. So whatever he was studding got incorporated into the next day's work. It would help to explain the disorganized structure. We tend to dream up complicated schemes. Your idea i...
