The Nature Of Families in Heaven

I find it somewhat hypocritical that the leaders preach eternal families, yet in reality the doctrine teaches very few families will make it intact to the CK. Most every family has some members that can not tow the line, hence they will be excluded from the plan of exaltation. There will be huge gap...

Re: What makes a Church "successful"? Is the LDS Church successful?

Since all churches are the constructs of humans you should probably judge success by the standards men set. Financial stability, influence, brand awareness, etc. On those metrics I think the church is quite successful.

Re: Judgment day

I have always believed if there is any kind of judgement, it will be more a matter of is judging ourselves, as opposed to adherence to some set of predefined benchmarks.

If we feel we are ready to move on we will.

Re: Women and Girls can now be witnesses to ordinances

I am not much of a believer in revelation on these kinds of things. I figure almost all decisions like this come from societal pressure. That said I will give them kudos for moving in the right direction.

Re: Change to Garment Question in Temple Recommend Interview

I could easily interpret that to mean how you where the garment is important. Not when you wear it.

Book of Mormon Translation

That is a lot of speculation for me. Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.

Re: Is It Arrogant to Pray?

I don't think it is arrogant to pray and ask for things you need. It may however be arrogant to believe you will get an answer.

Re: You Can't Handle the Truth!

Some people would say the truth is subjective, truth is relative to their position and experience. I think Mormons are that way. They can claim something is truth because anecdotally it is confirmed to them, That is why so many people will cling to notions that are just wrong. There are flat earther...

Re: Kirby is the best

If people are judged by the intent of their heart I think she is probably OK. If the leaders really believe their preached doctrine they seem rather willing to cut her off from her husband and family for eternity. Makes you wonder who is the bad guy here. Send rather harsh to make a point. Sent from...

Re: The Church's Obsession with "Worthiness Interviews"

Worthiness interviews will stop when members stop allowing them. It is sad in a way how much power many are willing to concede to the church leadership. Just get enough members to say no and the leadership will change in a blink to keep members from leaving.
