Minyan Man, probably my favorite aspect of the temple is that anyone who is there and tries even a tiny bit (even if only by staying) will "succeed" in getting to the Celestial Kingdom.
Curt, I like that idea. I never looked at it that way.

Re: Does the formula for developing spirituality work for you?

No. The formula kind of worked for me before my faith crisis, until suddenly it didn’t. The things that used to strengthen my testimony kind of helped destroy it. I agree with Arrakeen. In another way, my testimony isn't destroyed as much as "damaged" or changed. The things that help my testimony t...

Re: How will the Church change in light of the Covid Virus?

I was thinking today how odd this whole situation is & our relationship to church. - No sacrament meetings. No meetings at all. - No visits from members popping in. - No missionary work that I'm aware of. - No baptisms. - No ward socials or other social activities. - Very few temples are open. None ...

Re: Change...

There are changes that have come to me in a very short period of time. These have been the hardest to accept or understand. Examples of quick or least anticipated (for me) are: - a phone calls at 3am. Someone is sick or dying. - a meeting with your boss to announce your layoff or firing. - a call fr...

Re: Challenging discussion

... My wife confronted me regarding my "faith change." I personally believe that our faith should be changing over time. We should feel comfortable asking questions, challenging the status quo. That is one of the ways we learn. I love to read about Peter in the NT & how his faith seemed to change o...

Re: Change...

I older I get, the more interesting this life of mine becomes. I have a fantasy, that at our final judgement (whatever that is), Jesus will say: "Didn't I tell that your experiences on earth were going to be interesting?" My answer will be: yes it was interesting & some of them I never want to exper...

Re: Change...

I should of talked to you sooner. There is so much I don't know or understand. Knowledge about computers & software is just a
couple. I guess I felt lucky & satisfied that it lasted 10 yrs before it died.

Re: What does a Temple Recommend mean to you?

That reminds me, there is a symbolism in the temple ceremonies that I really like.
At every step along the endowment etc, there is always someone
to help you along the way. That's the lesson for life too. (or it should be.)

Re: Change...

I had an issue come up this past week that reminded me of this post. I had to get a new computer this past week. It was 10 yrs old & I use it all the time. Over the yrs, I've been able to keep it running. Any problems along the way I could fix them on my own. When I bought the computer, it came with...
