Re: I need to come clean

I don't know your Bishop or ward. I would suggest starting with the Gospel Topic Essays. It's safe for both parties. Tread in with that. Brush up on your reading of them. Then share them as a source of concern. You don't have to go beyond that. As callings go, there are plenty of people who don't ha...

Re: WOW Seminary Manual

I think like many things it is in for an overhaul in the near future. The leaders recognize it is out of place in our world and does not fit the mindset of the masses. I also think being a global church with totally different eating experiences, refrigeration, water, poverty are going to effect it....

Re: New Video Format of Temple Endowment

I'm not trying to be irreverent here, but what would you replace the veil with? I'm sure you've seen what the men wear, and that also seems to serve no purpose and frankly looks a bit ridiculous IMO. I think all head items should be removed. I am sure there is biblical reasoning for it. But there i...

Re: WOW Seminary Manual

I think we live in a new era where we do and should question and I think Elder Bednar (and others) made that pretty clear in last GC.
I believe he is making this his present platform. At least he continued it when he was in our area recently.

Re: New Video Format of Temple Endowment

Do the women still veil their faces during prayer?
No. Not ever. They still put on the hats/veils but they never cover them. I think we should drop the hat/veil thing all together. As usual no one has called to collect my input.

Re: What is Priestcraft? Is THIS Priestcraft?

I know a well placed guy who believes all the books written by GAs are priestcraft because the purpose of the books is to make money for the author and earn him more "fame." I can't say I totally disagree with him. As a writer by profession this totally irks me. Because a lot of times those books a...

Inching Closer to Inclusion

The Silver Fox and Harriett, hosted RMN and WWN, at Orlando this weekend. A part of their tour was meeting with the leader of PULSE, and expressing their condolences at the lost lives in the night club shooting. I know, it's not a full reversal but it is another jab at moving that direction. Read, e...

Re: Are all religions the same?

Welcome Asher, These are the type of questions we love to dive into. Please take time to look around the boards and dig up similar topics. There have been many insightful voices on this. For myself, I think religions are more the same than different. Kind of like people. Most people have some basic ...

Re: Has the church really changed

But really has anything fundamentally changed? Not directly. What it has done, I believe, is open the door to those types of changes. Question will be whether the next few guys in line will do it. I wouldn't say I am an RMN fan, but I give him kudo's for moving things. He is also, at 94 years old, ...
