Re: Finally saying hi

Welcome Grey Thinker, I support everything that's been said to date. This is a good place to work out what your thoughts & beliefs are & what they are going to be. I don't think that our belief system was ever meant to be static. I think it is meant to be an adventure of self discovery. Whatever tha...

Re: Promised Blessings

Maybe we should be praying for problems & challenges in life instead of blessing food for our health or blessing on our children when they go off to school, etc. I have taken "a run" at this topic for a few days & came up short every time. If anyone needs further explanation, please let me know. My ...

Re: What does the Book of Mormon actually teach?

rrosskopf, most of us on this forum write an Introduction that describes: Who we are, why we joined the site & what we expect to get out from
our experience here. I looked & couldn't find one for you. It would be very helpful if you could do that.

For what it's worth. And it's only a suggestion.

Re: Conference Favorite - Not Favorite

There maybe a concern that it is similar to a sporting event? Or, choosing sides in a competition. I'm ready to boo, we don't have a temple in our state. One temple closed (3) months this winter because there was a lack of activity. (Nauvoo) Has anyone participated in the "Hosanna shout" during a te...

Re: Should I feel guilty?

...This is what I have been struggling to live by since I went on a mission. The mission showed me how toxic my childhood was despite doing all the "right" things (baptism, priesthood, Eagle Scout, seminary, mission). Coming home from my mission I fell back into the toxic trap and went off to colle...

Re: What does the Book of Mormon actually teach?

For me it teaches:
- The personal ministry of Jesus Christ was not only for one part of the world (Eastern Hemisphere) but also for the west.
- The personal ministry of Jesus Christ was for the dead as well as the living.
- The personal ministry of Jesus Christ is for all generations.

What would they say?

Re: Joseph Smith Could Not Have Written the Book of Mormon

I am really old (mid 70's). In the past few years I've been reading more of the parables in scripture. Some of the stories are real, others are probably fictional. If the parables are fictional, does it really matter? The issue for me is: what principles of the gospel are being taught? I find myself...

Re: Church to allow baptisms, blessings for children of LGBT parents, updates handbook regarding 'apostasy'

I've never thought about this before, is there anything that prevents the church from performing civil wedding ceremonies for same sex partners? Has anyone on this forum, gone to a same sex, wedding ceremony performed by an LDS leader? If the church can't or won't perform the (civil) wedding ceremon...
