Re: Hamula revisited

The fact that there has not been any further news about this is good. Elder Hamula was a General Authority and it was dealt with well, I think. It is part of the responsibility when you accept a calling that is so public and in a position of authority. Give the man space to work out what he will.

Re: Objectionable Quote -- does this bother you?

We know that God has a relationship of perfect unity with his Son Jesus Christ, Jesus describes it in John 17. Jesus said that he wants all of us to have such a relationship. If we are to follow Jesus, we are to have a similar relationship with all who will.

Re: Objectionable Quote -- does this bother you?

God's want us to experience all that He does. That means being in family relationships with people willing to live according to the standards the Lord sets.

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 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....
