Re: How Do You Pray?

Sometimes I pray like this: Get real comfortable, (i.e. pillows for knees if you feel to kneel etc.). Speak the Lord’s Prayer vocally, and then just listen for the next 20 minutes or so. Speaking vocally from time to time as you might feel to questions, or thank etc. but mostly listening. For me, th...

Re: An ominous developement for Middle Way Mormons

The LDS definition of apostasy seems to differ from those suggested here: "Losing confidence in Church leaders, criticizing them, and neglecting any duty required by God lead to apostasy." Here is how to avoid the nasty bitter fruit: http://lds.org/manual/teachings-of-presidents-of-the-church-joseph...

Re: An ominous developement for Middle Way Mormons

I'm a HERETIC not an apostate. Sheeesh! They need to get their pejoratives correct :roll: get it right... Oddly enough, I have on occasion been called a heretic, an apostate, and even "an enemy of Christ" for teaching nothing more or less than what has been taught by church presidents, general auth...

Let's stay supportive for cwald here. My heart goes out to you cwald, because I'm sure it is painful and scary and makes you mad.
