Re: Joseph Smith: Fallen prophet?

I had my moments of believing that all Prophets at their moments of being a man of God and they had their moments of being a man of the flesh.

through personal studies I feel that Joseph Smith was never truly a prophet to begin with. He and his friends helped create a religion.

Re: Members talking about ex members

I remember knocking on the doors of the inactive with my EQ president. I remember thinking that I was helping Jesus find lost sheep. 12+ years later maybe I think I was among the lost. I have attended other church groups. It is refreshing to hear something different. It is also good to know I can st...

Re: Is feeling the Spirit dependent on obedience?

I always personally disagreed with the idea that only worthy people can feel the spirit. Honestly I am not totally sure I believe in a literal Holy Ghost or at least not in the Mormon sense. If there is such a thing my relationship with the Holy Ghost sure is complicated too. I feel so strongly insp...

Re: Green Apples Returns With Some Comments and Questions

I think it is time for me to either fully embrace the religion of my up bringing or to walk away. It is time for me to really consider how big or small my little mustard seed of faith really is and if it should be planted in my mormon garden or planted elsewhere. I wish you well. Keep us informed o...

Re: Green Apples Returns With Some Comments and Questions

I have been switching up my diet for weight loss over the past year. I have been doing plenty of research on the foods that are ideal for weight loss. I have noticed that when I don't get enough sleep or if I am overly stressed out then my weight loss stops. I have read plenty of articles and watche...

Re: My Rant - cleaning the building

My YSA ward was assigned to clean the church building the first 3 months of this year. The first month I never went because I honestly would forget and I think everyone else did too. My bishop was kind of looking for a calling to give Green Apples so he put me in charge of promoting the cleaning cre...

Green Apples Returns With Some Comments and Questions

In the past I would just add to my original intro only because I had no idea where else to post what I wanted to say. That original intro has become overly long and unfortunately there came a point where there was basically a discussion within the discussion and the original purpose of the post was ...

Re: YW and the Sacrament

Looking back at the Primary days I always thought that it was rather silly that the boys and girls were separated into separate classes the final year. Back then it was the Blazers and the Merry Misses. I'm not sure what they call them now. I have also had problems with sticking around all 3 hours o...
