Re: Following Christ by Stephen Robinson

I found nothing wrong with all the quotes Roy used quoting Stephen Robinson. What struck me as most interesting was the slant of his message as well as the responses by those who responded. Brian Johnston responded with, " I was so hopeful that Robinson was going to be a promoter of a more compassio...

Re: Temples too many, a sign of our decline

Thanks guys for turning on the light of understanding of StayLDS's mission. Being an inactive "believer" I probably need more nourisment than this blog offers. I'm sorry for confronting each of your comfort zones with what little zeal I have left. Everyone on the planet, from my point of view has th...

Re: Temples too many, a sign of our decline

Tom Haws said...I think he wanted a community that would be a relief and a support to those LDS who feel their old LDS religious foundations have dissolved, shifted, or snapped underneath them. Or to people who feel their previous LDS perspective is no longer robust and fit enough for the realities...

Re: Temples too many, a sign of our decline

This is Ray. I deleted this entire comment, jeriboy, because discussing something is NOT name-calling and derision and slighting someone else's faith - and that is exactly what your comment did.

Re: Where do you see the Church in 5, 10, 20 years?

mcarp said...Go look up some of the things Mark E. Peterson (then an apostle) said about blacks never holding the priesthood in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Although it isn't well publicized, there actually were people that left the church after 1978 and cite as one of the signs of the church no...

Re: Where do you see the Church in 5, 10, 20 years?

Rix said... If I'm not mistaken (and I could be!), I think that IS the policy today. The real question is, as the leadership comes to understand (that's how I would put it...) that God made gays how they are, what is considered "chaste?" "Sex" only within their committed union -- however that is de...

Re: Question about the Apple

Valoel said...My second most likely option, in my personal opinion, is that we are living in an advanced virtual reality, a tangible virtual reality in every sense. It may as well be a dream, but with an important point to it. History may or may not have really happened. I can't prove it to myself ...

Re: Where do you see the Church in 5, 10, 20 years?

mcarp said...So, I know it sounds crazy, but I think in 20 years the idea of giving the priesthood to women and homosexuals will not be out of the question. while I'm not sure General Conference will change in the next 5 years, I think you are going to see more change than you can believe at the lo...

Re: "Truth is One, but the sages speak of it by many names."

Rix said...Your thoughts? Does anybody believe in "reincarnation" in the Hindu sense? Or any other sense? About 25 years ago I met a guy who was LDS, about like all of us on these threads are LDS. If you can imagine that one paint me a verbal discription. He was able, somehow, in his own mind to re...

Re: Temples too many, a sign of our decline

wordsleuth said...The Church could do more in this area. Jeriboy said...Jesus made the comment, the poor you have with you always. He also showed that even though he was the Son of God with great power, he did not come into the world to change such things. He once told a slave to be a good slave. I...
