Re: "The CES Letter"

Roy do you think it's possible for JS to have been wrong about polygamy and still be a prophet? I suppose it depends on how you define prophet. The traditional Mormon definition is one who carries messages and makes announcements for God. I find it difficult to imagine that God would sit down with ...

Re: My Story (Glad to find this place)

I have been participating in multiple churches for years. Part of this is because we find much more engaging children's programs elsewhere (seriously the LDS primary is pretty awful).

Re: My strategy moving forward

People that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. There was a time when I misapplied this quote to the stages of grief. I was determined to do each step fully, to learn everything that I had to experience in that particular stage so that I could move on fully resolved and never look ba...

Re: Free agency vs. free agency

"library resources are provided without charge, but are not without cost." Interesting concept. We can and should value things even if we did not have to work for them. Freedom isn't free This line seems to be playing with the same word association that you point out DJ. Freedom has nothing to do w...

Re: Home Teaching is Over, Long Live Home Teaching?

Is that ministering? One of my "ministering" families has a daughter. My daughter and her daughter both love a Lego expansion called Lego elves. Although there is an age gap I invited this girl over to our house to play for an hour. I heard through my wife (who later talked to the mother) that the ...

Re: Are we a church of volunteers, assignments or covenants?

Personally, I feel the Church hasn't dealt honestly with me, and IMHO a covenant made under false pretense isn't binding. Early in my faith crisis I shared with my bishop. My crisis centered on my belief that paying tithing would bring blessings upon my family and then my daughter was stillborn. My...
