Re: Is the temple garment doctrine or policy?

Has Holland(?) or any other general authority actually said the handbooks are doctrine or did they say the handbooks contain doctrine? If they said the handbooks are doctrine how about a verifiable source with a link. Oaks said the handbooks are doctrine during the worldwide bishopric broadcast and...

Re: Is the temple garment doctrine or policy?

I skimmed through the thread so I might be saying something that has already been said. Temple marriage (sealing) is doctrine. The waiting period between civil marriage and sealing is policy.

Re: A Terrific Article about Pornography

Did I miss the biology of sexual relations in this thread?
