Re: Rough Stone Rolling and My Shelf

how can a TBM who has read RSR still have an unqualified and unreserved testimony of JS? I don't know. My view of him changed, certainly. But I was still able to see how he could be a prophet, mistakes, weaknesses and all. If you've read RSR, I'm wondering how it influenced you? I marveled at how J...

Re: Useful quote of the day...

[in regard his book _The Miracle of Forgiveness_] "Spencer later seemed to wish he had adopted a gentler tone. In 1977 he said to Lyle Ward, his neighbor, 'Sometimes I think I might have been a little too strong about some of the things I wrote in this book'. . . . When he heard of others who read t...

Re: Useful quote of the day...

President Kimball on receiving the 1978 revelation: "Day after day, and especially on Saturdays and Sundays when there were no organizations [sessions] in the temple, I went there when I could be alone. "I was very humble . . . I was searching for this . . . I wanted to be sure. . . . I had a great...

Re: Spiritual experiences as a foundation for testimony

The "last" spiritual experience that led to my crisis was just as strong, warm, and peaceful as all the others - my first discussion and the JS story, baptism, temple marriage, and so forth. I was and am so confused - since the feelings were exactly the same, I don't know what to believe and I don'...

Re: An ominous developement for Middle Way Mormons

I ran across this quote and thought of cwald (and most of us, too): John Taylor, JD 9:14: Suppose there are some who do not do exactly right in some places, what of that? There are many things that are not right. Never mind; everything that is wrong will in due time be righted. Permit me to bring a ...

Re: Mother's Day Report

HiJolly, Thanks for the recommendation. I enjoyed reading the article. I loved the symbolism and analogy of birth and partaking of the first tree. That was new to me. A while back our gospel doctrine teacher, who was also our former Bishop and a retired institute teacher, taught a lesson on "the Fa...

Re: What is salvation?

I most often feel that salvation is not some rational, theological principle, but just the feeling written of by King David of old -- Psalm 16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. My salvation is knowing God will not leave me in hell....
