Re: WOW Seminary Manual

In reality there are only two items in the WofW that we care about. No tobacco and no alcohol. Even then it says beer and wine are ok to some degree. Coffee and tea get thrown in for some reason and the are not even mentioned. We talk about it being a commandment and all but we don’t remotely live i...

Re: Just a couple of thoughts...

The reason questions are uncomfortable is because there are no answers.

Re: The Nature of Men in the LDS Church

It may not be so much a function of what the church teaches men to be but what type of man gravitates to the church. Of course there are always outliers, but as a whole I will stand by my experience that the real TBM men exhibit a more passive personality. It’s not a criticism just an observation. W...

Has the church really changed

Lots of talk about all the rapid changes lately. For the record I support all of them and find it refreshing. Especially not having to wait a year to go to the temple. That always bugged me. But really has anything fundamentally changed? A few policies and procedures for sure but the power structure...

Re: Share the Good?

Do we really need more time in "social media"? Maybe it shows my age, I avoid programs like this. It is not aimed at my generation. Facebook, etc. If you have something to tell me, say it to my face or not at all. Does anyone see anything positive? signed, Cranky old man. I am with you. If it is on...

Re: What is Priestcraft? Is THIS Priestcraft?

To me it is if you require payment in order to get to heaven. Not to be confused with donating funds to any organization. All organizations need money to exist, but when you tie your eternal soul to that donation then it is priestcraft.

Re: The Nature of Men in the LDS Church

I feel that the chruch disdains and estranges a man's man. Working class men that are rough around the edges are not accepted in Mormon culture. I hadn't thought about this but I think I have to agree. I live in a ward (and have lived in wards) with a number of men "rough around the edges." Their d...

Re: De-emphasis on Food Storage?

I use to have some 5 gallon buckets of wheat. Sort of silly what was I gong to do with it? We all live in a totally interdependent economy. If some kind collapse happens then we are all in the same boat. So if everything goes to hell there will be no one to turn the lights on and you can't cook your...

Re: Blinded by Faith

Faith is a tough concept for me. Maybe due to my own fault it has caused me great pain. It has led me to believe in things that turned out to be false. After exerting all the faith I could muster I started walking down a path I felt I was inspired to follow and it led to terrible consequences. It ha...

Re: New Video Format of Temple Endowment

I don’t go to the temple anymore. Sort of a protest thing. But I can not imagine it is any worse than the live sessions. I went to the live sessions in the Manti temple many times. That was somewhat tedious. I enjoyed the films much better.
