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.

Suffering?

In my more traditional Mormon days I use to by big time into the concept of suffering four your own good. Use to love to read section 121. All that business about not suffering like Job. How it is all for your good, and you are going to come out on top in the end. Now that I am much older and have s...

Re: Questioning the Scriptures

I have often said scripture especially in the church is very cherry picked. If you take the Bible maybe 3% is used. Mostly just those that fit the narrative. It’s a little better with the BofM but not much If you take a bible and just randomly open it and read a page more than likely it will not mak...

Re: Can We Talk about The Atonement?

All seems a little complex to me. I tend to think there is a lot of human thought and behaviors that modeled this plan.

I hope God is less legalistic and more welcoming.

Re: Another TR and Garment Issue/Question

I predict garments will be eliminated from everyday wear within 10 years. It will all be a moot point then.

Re: Put the Fun in Mormon

I can recall a number of major activities we did in my youth. Things that would never happen today. It was so much fun in those days. Probably because we were not obsessed with keeping everything on a spiritual level. We might have said a blessing on the hot dogs roasting on the fire but that was ab...

Re: The Big Universe

LDS theology has the capability of handling that issue quite well by talking about organizing specific eternal matter in specific locations, not "creating everything" - especially from nothing. Sort of my point. How can any god or multiple gods organize that that much matter? Let alone control it a...

The Big Universe

The universe is big really big. So big your human mind can not conceptualize it. Go back 200 years and the universe as we knew it was small. By comparison very small So it seems to me we are operating in a religion created in a small universe. We have a god who controls a 200 year old universe. I fi...
