Re: A Shocking Discovery About Us

And source? Sorry l, I hear stuff like and it screams urban legend. Yes. The minster said it but what paper or study is he quoting this data from, or it is a "It feels real" type situation? A lot of these, particularly in political situations, feel like buzz words. looking for the little upvote arr...

Re: A Netlix/TV show about Joseph Smith would be absolutely fascinating

Every time I see a thread like this my first initial reaction is: Nobody cares about MORmONism . But... That musical about some book related to MORmONism is a smash hit, so If the show about Horny Joe is done right, I guess it could work. :ugeek: Edit: And since the Red Cowboy and I were posting al...

Re: A Netlix/TV show about Joseph Smith would be absolutely fascinating

Starting with your last thought - my widow MIL is on a "mission" as an office secretary in a Mission in Canada. She asked to be sent to 2 specific places where she could do family history in the evenings, so they sent her to a very cold, dark place all by herself. And she had to buy a truck for the ...

Re: Reformed Egyptian

This is why I love coming back here. Along the lines of authenticity, COB is really pushing the 1st Vision bicentennial and if Ballard's recent video about it is any indication of what's to come we can expect them to double-down on the PoGP version with all of its problems. My opinion is that they h...

Re: The Book of Mormon: Written for Who's Day?

No child of eight years of age is prepared to understand the heavy baptismal covenants that are only revealed later and then foisted upon them as teens and adults. Here the church practices an e...

Re: Questions about YM changes

That was my very first thought. TSCC has no concern for it's local leaders and their time/family life. Right? I was never a bishop but I had my four kids really close together and was called as EQP right before the fourth one was born. That was just stupid! Life was too busy for me to do all that a...

Re: Second wife - Oaks

Re: Terryl Givens new Video on Book of Abraham With Kerry Muhlestein

I haven't seen this You Tube video interview up yet, here on these message boards I mean, but think it is interesting to note that Givens is turning to the LDS Egyptologists and getting more and more involved with the Book of Abraham and the Papyri. I have made a couple comments on the video as has...

Per BH: "5. It is true Joseph was revered, but we know of at least five women who turned him down without at repercussion." Thanks Brian, we also know about women he called whores because they didn't accept. We also have young Martha Brotherton who was first assaulted by JS and BY and then smeared w...

Re: What Satan wants

Have you noticed that church leaders always know what Satan is up to and what he wants you to do? They seem to get it wrong about God a lot of the time (e.g. curse of Cain, policy change, Holland's Wrong Roads...) but they seem pretty certain about Satan. If I believed in the devil I think I would ...

Ballard did this on a visit to my mission in 92-93. My MP went on and on about what a rare thing it was to have this kind of blessing.
