Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference

I see Elder Oaks as teaching about exaltation and our current understanding of what is required for it. To be sealed to your husband or wife and to be faithful to it and all the covenants that lead to it.

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference

In which talk did they refer to loving your enemies and that to others you may be their enemies?

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference Sat. Morning

Pres. Oscarson's talk was very good. DON'T listen to Elder Oaks' talk. It is ultra-orthodox about marriage. It will upset you. It is black and white, and it comes across as deeply condescending, even though he says we need to love others who don't see things the way we do. I liked Elder Oak's talk....

Seeing some choose to not to go to church

I found out today about a friend who is choosing to stop coming to church. I had an hour long conversation with him. I believe that he is following the dictates of his conscience. I have confidence that it will all work out in the end with God. http://richalger.blogspot.com/2017/08/enhance-my-gospel...

That's How the Light Gets In

I thought of this talk today. It is comforting to me to let go of my irrational desire to know everything. Somethings are learned in the messy journey. Bro Jarvis uses the traveling salesman problem to illustrate why we must not try to reach perfection before choosing to act good enough. https://you...

Re: Chastity/Morality - Some questions

Sexuality is only one aspect of an intimate relationship. For some, it is very important, for others it is less. For me it is about honesty and generosity more than anything else. There is nothing more attractive than a confident person who loves me as I am. One that I have shared my fears and darke...
