Re: The White Bear Problem

This is an interesting discussion. I also suffer with depression as well as anxiety and meds have definitely helped me, even though the mild side effects drive me nuts sometimes. Well, I knew the amount of sunshine could affect depression, but I never knew elevation could affect it too. Interesting.

Re: For those who stay. Do you still follow all the teachings of the church?

Bear with me. This is lengthy! I'm sorry! This is a good discussion. I am now 40 years old with boyish face and served a mission from April 1998-April 2000. I experienced a faith crisis in March 2010 before my 33rd birthday, which led to my faith transition. I strive to live all the teachings of the...

Re: What if the world is not declining?

This is a good discussion. Well, before my faith transition I used to believe conditions in the world were getting better and worse. They would have to for Christ to come. Now, after my faith transition I believe similarly, but some of the things I believed were bad may not be bad at all. I don't kn...

Re: Repenting in heaven

This is a good discussion. That's true the scriptures do say those things regarding the spirit world and the spirit being separated from the body, but then a member of the church who had a near-death experience told Bill Reel in his Mormon Discussions podcast that just having a spirit feels just as ...

Re: New 4 Book LDS History

Mom3, thanks for sharing that. It's about time the brethren are starting do more than just put this stuff on the church's website and hardly announce it. I can't wait until the first volume gets published next year!

Re: Why the Church abuses

Heber13, I agree with you on this. I love Bill Reel's podcasts and his latest episode was a powerful and emotional one. I agree with Bill regarding church talks where people tell why other people faith crises to begin isn't right (particularly over-generalizing), but I'm not so sure that constitutes...

Re: Mormonism as "Third Culture"

And through it all, I thought I was Mormon. Then I showed up to BYU Provo. I was moving into the dorms at Deseret Towers .. I showed up wearing white harem pants, a red tube top, a cute black vest that covered me up a bit, and stiletto heels. It was a great outfit that had served me well in Santa B...

Re: Do You Believe in the Literal Christ?

I'm with SamBee, even if in reality the life of Jesus Christ was more complicated than that, as history normally is.
