Re: Russell M. Nelson Birthday Bash

He is remarkably healthy and strong for a 95yo. I am impressed at how healthy Oaks is too. He could live another 10 years 😂 My wife showed me some highlights of the program this morning and he really is a pretty impressive guy in many ways. Come to think of it, my wife is also a very impressive per...

Re: Book of Abraham

Also, while I'm on the rant (or whatever it is), I'm bringing up the Word of Wisdom (which has been made into a commandment). The "conspiring men" was spot on, and no doubt wheat was healthy in JS's day - but as a prophetic document, it neglected to prophesy how toxic wheat would become to many peo...

Re: Book of Abraham

Re: What did you really learn from the temple ceremony?

I learned that I had no idea what I was involved in. In all honesty, I didn't make any covenants that night. I'm sure I did everything I was told, but I was in such a state of shock that I just did what I was told. No prep, parents who were mostly cultural mormons who also had no idea what was going...

Re: Emma - Victim or Co-Conspirator?

She reminds me a little of the wife in a new True Crime podcast called The Clearing. The husband had been murdering people and abusing his family his whole life. When he and his wife were old and worn down he was finally caught. In the show, they talk about how she was saying to herself that she had...

THESE ARE JUST EXAMPLES OF SATAN'S IMITATIONS OF THE TRUTH!!!

He wants you to read this stuff so you will compare it to what Joseph did (in complete righteousness) and begin to lose faith in him.

Remember, Satan is very, very crafty and smart and stuff. Don't be fooled. ;)

Re: Elder Steven Snow: Most Members Couldn't Care Less

This is a fascinating quote: Elder Snow: That was that was the concern. We wanted to help a lot of people that were struggling on some of these questions. But you’ve got to understand that a large majority, a large percentage of the church could care less. That really hasn’t been anything they’ve w...

Re: No more year wait for sealing after civil marriage!

I can't believe RMN didn't claim revelation here. This would have been a fairly safe one, whereas the other policy/doctrines/programs he's been making the revelation claim on just make him look stupid! He still might. Maybe he wants to make sure the reaction is good enough before jumping headfirst ...

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.
