Re: End of Duty to God, Personal Progress, Faith In God

The BSA is currently involved in sex abuse lawsuits which may bankrupt it and also promotion of LGBT and mixed gender troops, neither of which probably goes down well with the LDS.

Re: Time to Pivot

I noticed twenty years ago that missionaries were still wmphasizing the "Lo here! Lo there!" aspect of the Restoration story and I had to point out that this wasn't the case anymore. A lot of churches co-operate nowadays, even the Catholics and Orthodox. Presbyterians don't get upset by Methodists g...

Re: Time to Pivot

Are you talking about different ideologies claiming authority and to be right or different churches claiming to be the one true church with God's authority? If you are talking about ideologies, I agree with you. But, I think more people are seeing religious claims as being in the eye of the beholde...

Re: Church considering lowering age for youth interviews to 8

Why have they introduced this at the back of a campaign to get rid of interviews for older children? Is it the church being contrary again?

Re: Time to Pivot

truth and authoritative claims are less and less relevant in today's western world.
If this is the case, why do we hear them so frequently? And not just from the religious/right wing quarter?

Re: Church considering lowering age for youth interviews to 8

If they were to implement some policy to interview youth ages 8 to 11 at regular intervals I'd like to think that the interviews wouldn't be very formal and wouldn't be in a similar format to a TR interview. It would probably be something like: How are you doing? Are you happy? Do you have any ques...

Re: Church considering lowering age for youth interviews to 8

There have been three bishops here in the last ten years. Four within the last twelve. Two of these have become inactive due to problems (not entirely of their own making - one was work related), and one of those two has had his name removed. On the other hand, our last SP was in for a decade.... Fr...

Re: New Video Format of Temple Endowment

I'm not a fan personally. I believe part of the motivation is that this format will work better with presentations in multiple languages, whose dialog will vary greatly in length. A shame really, because the film is the only part of the endowment, I enjoy rather than endure to the end. I used to enj...
