Re: Stake Conference

I honestly find Stake Conference the most boring thing we do on a regular basis in the church. I used to make a point of missing it, but I have to attend due to my calling now. Occasionally there will be good speakers but a lot of it consists of sustaining, stake business and a bit of being told wha...

Re: Priesthood confusion.

I can never remember which callings are Aaronic and which Melchizedek. I don't let it bother me since it has little bearing on my everyday church life.

To put it in a simpler way, I don't need a man to explain to me what it's like to be a woman, and every time they try, they demonstrate their utter failure to comprehend what they are talking about.
It cuts both ways. I keep on being told what it's like to be a man by women. Not a clue either.

Re: Another idea for what it's worth.

There are some horrible mistakes that people have made when altering my family tree... I have never managed to correct them. I found out I was related to someone I baptized which was cool. It was also suggested I was related to a family in the ward who I am great friends with but have learning diffi...

Re: The Mark of the Beast

If you are on welfare, they will sometimes ask for access to bank statements. I can see a scenario where someone's church donations are high, and the welfare people would say "how can you afford this?" or assume income was coming in from elsewhere. Tax authorities can be similarly invasive. That sai...

Re: The Mark of the Beast

I think the driving force behind newer payment systems is convenience, not control. I'd be more convinced if I hadn't heard of such systems being developed back in the nineties. I suppose cheques were the first in this line (bills maybe too), then credit cards. This stuff has all been planned ahead...

Re: The Mark of the Beast

I think there are certain social issues that they have spoken out on which they've not completely fluffed... Debt for one, and I think they have made progress with disabilities and some mental health matters. The idea of social media fasting is a good one and I found that beneficial to me. I think i...

Re: The Mark of the Beast

It is about scripture so is relevant. We hear continually about the 144,000 and the Millennium, and historic persecution, so we should discuss this too. But the whole business of implanting people is already here. Several companies require their employees to get them for security clearance. Whatever...

Re: The Mark of the Beast

Whatever your take on this scripture, there are many sinister things going on right now we should be concerned about. Consider: * Cashless payment is being brought in openly and by stealth. We are told people "want" it, yet it is a case of the tail wagging the dog. I heard of the concept decades bef...
