Re: New First Presidency of the church

There's also the deacon's quorum president theory. RMN put his best buds in as his counselors. "I have a good feeling about making my best buds my counselors. It must be the Spirit!" All of the problems I have with the Church can be boiled down to this. There is some truth in this but it is not alw...

Re: The White Bear Problem

I only get caffeine from soft drinks these days and I am even wondering about that. For all it picks me up, I tend to pay for it later either in sleep loss or anxiety etc and I develop some dependence relatively quickly. Two cans of Coca Cola or two bottles and I'm pushing it. Which when I thought a...

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

Have you tried other wards Gökhan? This might be an option. There will be a few in Berlin. A lot of wards have the same problems but they are not all exactly the same.

HBE inspires no strong feelings in me, but his presence ensures continuity.

Re: New First Presidency of the church

President Uchtdorf is still going to be an apostle, but let's give this some time. He's also in his seventies, unlike DO & HE, so he will probably be back in the future. And like RMN, he's in good shape for his age too. Given their age, we will see a few GAs passing away in the next few years, which...

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

Enschuldigen sie mich, weil ich auf Englisch schreibe. Firstly, please understand that name removal is taken very seriously in the church. You may think it is like leaving a club, but in church understanding it is like rejecting the gospel, which is a bigger issue. The bishop will not see name remov...

Re: Hi!

You don't have to go to the temple to hold a TR. You don't have to go to get temple work done. You don't have to hold a TR to be LDS. As it happens, I hold a TR and I do visit the temple occasionally. I appreciate a lot of it, but the endowment is a drag for me (although I like the new films) I did ...

Re: Superstitions

Life's inconveniences that crop up when you try to attend the temple. Satan doesn't want you to go. I have direct personal experience of this... I can't really go into it fully on this forum but just before and after my endowment, I had some strange experiences. The police wanted to speak to me the...

Re: How Candid are you with Non-Members about the church?

I'm not. I could count the non-members who know about my church on one hand.

The only time I go vaguely TBM is with investigators.
