Re: My Tentative Conclusion about gospel convos with Traditional Believers

Excellent. This is really a good example of how we can disagree in a constructive way, keep our dignity & a friend.
In the process you don't have to get angry.

Re: My Tentative Conclusion about gospel convos with Traditional Believers

The relationship is still good. Those interactions represented only a small portion of the 3 days we spent in the wilderness together. Much of the time was invested in logistics of meeting our needa for shelter, food, rest etcetera, finding out way in the trails, getting from point A to B and discu...

Re: My Tentative Conclusion about gospel convos with Traditional Believers

SD, where does your friendship stand since this happened? Assuming you're still friends, how will this affect your relationship in the future? It is difficult for me to understand what it takes for someone to call a "friend" to repentance. I'm sure he thinks he's doing it out of love & concern. Call...

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

My cousin committed suicide a little over a year ago. I pass no judgement on what he did. The only regret I have is we didn't have the opportunity to talk before he did it. I have friends who had suicidal thoughts & the situation improved when they got professional help. Stephies, please consider th...

Re: Combining Elders and High Priests

Now that some time has passed since the "combining" of the PH offices, I am wondering how you think the change is going? And, what you anticipate for the future? The reason I ask is: there are some members of the "old" HP organization who were considered active in every sense of the word but, would ...

Re: The New Inactives - Seniors

My personal observation is when a senior member has been a Stake President, Bishop, Branch President, RS President, etc becomes retirement age, there seems to be an understanding that they don't receive callings, have speaking assignments, give prayers, etc. It seems to be understood by our current ...

Re: The Prosperity Gospel

Many of us have certain expectations related to the gospel that are not true or exaggerated. Prosperity is just one. For example, in my life I expected that when bad times or hardships developed, I would be given special inspiration or insight or comfort that would kick in when I needed it. This I a...

Re: Creationism vs Evolutionism in Faith Transition... Or Why Do I Feel Like I Lost the Arguement?

Recently I've been reading through the parables in scripture. It is estimated that Jesus taught between 33-35% of his teachings using parables. Parables aren't necessarily a true depiction of something that really happened. It is a depiction of gospel principles in story format. Would it be wrong or...
