Re: Confessions of a Sociopath

Fascinating book. It was recommended to me a couple of years ago by my aunt who is LDS and a counselor. She said that in her experience what this book says rings true on many levels. The thing that stuck with me was how many people meet the clinical definition of sociopath. The 4% figure means that...

Confessions of a Sociopath

https://d1w7fb2mkkr3kw.cloudfront.net/assets/images/book/large/9781/4472/9781447242734.jpg I have noticed this book has been getting some quite heavy promotion recently, which has reminded me of it. The author - who uses a pen name - relates her experiences of being a sociopath. Two points stuck ou...

Re: JS Bible translation

Did anyone see this? http://jur.byu.edu/?p=21296 Not until now. I have always seen the JST as more of a commentary and clarification than a "translation" in the sense of the BOM & POGP. Though some bits are heavily reworked, but others - quite large pieces of the Bible - are left alone. My cynical ...

Re: Kirby Questions for new FP

http://edition.cnn.com/2016/10/08/politics/utah-hillary-clinton-donald-trump-voting/index.html This CNN link takes the binary politics route that plagues US elections i.e. if you won't vote for one suit, you vote for the other. As I understand it, third party had a decent shout in Utah and some memb...

Re: Kirby Questions for new FP

Can you speak to us a little bit about why President Trump’s rating is so high among Mormons and so low among Muslims? Is it? I gather a lot of Mormons, yes including traditional Mormon Republicans, are not huge fans of Trump. I have it on good authority Mitt Romney isn't a diehard Trump fanboy eit...

Re: My Nephew Met a GA

Jaw Drop - Elder Nelson. I don't know what to say. My nephew is on a mission in Russia and they had a special fireside with Elder and Sister Nelson. My nephew is stoked. I am speechless. That's all. Now President Nelson... I've met Richard G. Hinckley. I was going out of the door and he was behind ...

Re: Negative Consequences of Excommunication to the Church

Excommunication covers so many things. There are those who need to be ex'd, such as the embezzlers and sexual predators. Then there are those who have been involved in consensual sex, maybe in or out of marriage and someone else's marriage sometimes... there are also some people who are just trouble...

Re: FP under RMN Presidency

RMN does seem healthy and I would bet it would be longer than this, but according to one https://www.lifeexpectancycalculators.com/actuarial-life-tables.html AGE 93 Expected Lifetime 6 Years Remaining 3 Life expectancy is not the same as "full mental capabilities", but even in that case it seems RM...

Re: Coming Back into Church after Name Removal when Things went not well

When someone makes a Sin nobody runs to the Imam (moslem counterpart to an Bishop) and asks for repentance, they would even criticize mostly the Imam that he should not get into personal matters, Repentace for Turks and moslems espeically are between God and them. In Christianity, it depends on the...
