Re: How are you handling the chaos?

I ride my bike alot. Good exercise always makes me feel better. When i am not ridding I am hiking.

I dont read or watch the news. It is all so jaded and negative.

Re: How will the Church change in light of the Covid Virus?

Short of a vaccine it seems we are just delaying the inevitable. Eventually it will run its course. It may be ugly but there is no good answer. Shutting everything down has a host of issues every bit as dangerous. I think the church is correct open with caution

Re: Just how necessary is all this?

Any organization will impose more and more hoops to jump through in an attempt to squeeze a little more compliance from its members. We see this in many corporations where middle management sends down edicts of conformance, to justify the need for their existence. The church is no different. The mor...

Re: Kirby on why church is OK despite its flaws

I understand going for social reasons, or reasons other than the doctrine. However i do not think you can brush aside all the nonsense the church has been pushing. That does cause real damage in lives.

Re: An unintended "consequence" of home church?

Faithful members are finding out what those who left already knew. Less Mormon church is better. When you are in control of your Sundays, not you Sundays controlling you, you tend to be happier.

I reject a god that uses torture to get what he wants.

Re: Coping With Previous Sexual History of a Spouse

Count yourself lucky you have a spouse with a sexual nature. Maybe all those great years you have had are somewhat attributable to their behaviors before they met you. Dont look down on something that is a benefit.

Re: Faith or Not

If we are going to define faith as something to make us feel good or perhaps the ability to change who we are then I am onboard. Faith essentially becomes a form of positive thinking. I have faith I can lose weight or something like that. This does not preclude divine intervention but it does not re...

Re: Lawsuit Against the Church -- Implications

Not reporting would put other children in jeopardy. Do we risk the safety of others to protect the abuser? Any entity with money is going to be sued on a regular basis. In general most are just looking for some kind of settlement to alter their financial situation, not necessarily looking for justic...

Faith or Not

There was a time where faith played an important part in my life. I would try to exercise faith to know things or to understand things beyond my knowledge. Although I still think it is important to believe you can accomplish things or gain knowledge, I would not call it faith anymore. Faith requires...
