Where Do I Turn for Official Answers???

I'm feeling kind of put off right now because I have sincere temple questions about women performing ordinances in the temple and by what authority, and then the 2nd anointing came up (not even by ME) and now I'm being told by someone here to forget about it and discuss something else. Pfffft. What?...

I thought this was a safe place to discuss our concerns. This happens to be one of my BIG concerns...so why go discuss something else?

Re: Temple Question

I believe women have something equal to priesthood...motherhood and womanhood. Perhaps as we allow the Savior to be manifest in our lives the need and ability to give blessings become available to us. Women are equal to men and priesthood in every respect...maybe even better. Men have fatherhood an...

Women & Priesthood

Why do you think women don't hold the priesthood? This is my husband's theory: Satan’s initial attempt at presenting Adam with the fruit is analogous with Satan opposing the plan in the pre-earth life and just as Adam rejected the fruit the first time it was presented to him, we all rejected Satan a...

Re: Temple Question

Does anyone know how a woman is given this authority to officiate in temple ordinances in the initiatory? Does the Temple President lay his hands on her head to give her this authority? If so, what verbage does he use to state this?

Re: Temple Question

I appreciate all the responses but I'm still in the dark how an ordinance can be performed without the performer holding the priesthood. Am I just dense? :oops:

Re: Temple Question

It is confusing Daisy, and it is kind of playing with words. Yes, women are given the priesthood to exercise in that setting, the difference is they are not authorized to exercise it anywhere else. If that makes sense. If they were considered a general priesthood holder they would be able to exerci...

Re: A long road . . .

The question for me probabaly going to be is how to learn to live within the church and Utah Culture and not drive myself crazy. Oh...I can so relate to this! That is the question for me as well.

Re: Two people inside of me

And then there is the other part of me the feels deeply betrayed by this organization that I devoted so much to -- the one that was suppose to be there to help me in my darkest of days. Instead, I felt very abandoned and shunned and most of all forgotten. So. Here I am.....a recovering apostate. :D...
