Re: TR Question Survey - Question 10b: Word of Wisdom

great to see that these topics are still relevant. i think we have to grapple with the idea that revelation comes line upon line and precept upon precept, and historical "revelation" often reflects the "lesser portion of god's word which he doth impart to the children of men." often, god's inspirati...

Re: Need Opinions/Help with the "Us vs Them" Mentality

My immediate question was: "how does the knowledge of love put people in direct opposition to God?" The problem is when I read "good" or "righteousness" I instinctively see it as "Love" or synonymous with "charity" or "the love of God." Obviously Greg Boyd had another concept in mind, one that invo...

Re: Passive attack in priesthood

I speak up regularly - slowly, softly, and in orthodox terms. I do it in any meeting I am attending, no matter who else is there. Why? The voices that are heard are the only ones that will be remembered. (Good to see you again, wayfarer.) good to be seen. Of course you know where you can find me mo...

Re: Need Opinions/Help with the "Us vs Them" Mentality

The problem with "Us vs Them" in the church may be our greatest sin. Instead of embracing the love of god, we put ourselves in the place of god and judge others. When we do this, we sever ourselves from the love of god. As mormons, our baptismal covenant is best expressed in Mosiah 18: to lift each ...

Re: Passive attack in priesthood

If we don't speak up, they win. If we walk out, they win. if we do speak up, then we might get censured. But it's a price worth paying. I have come to realize that in the wake of the "Policy Revelation", I need to stay, witness, and above all, love. I don't think we can go wrong if we focus on love....

Re: Push the button or "Stay LDS"

I love that damn button.

But I'm pretty sure that any "truth" it provides, is just as contingent as that which resides in my own mind.

or yours.

Bumping this. I have had a number of people on other sites continuing to seek guidance on how to authentically answer temple recommend questions.

If anyone here has more to add, please go to the various topics referenced in the original post on this thread.

thanks!

Re: 1st Presidency Letter - supposed to read to all members

Except it doesn't appear to be for sacrament meeting. That is strange to me. It does appear to me more of a legal position vis-a-vis "religious liberty"--putting a stake in the ground about allowing the church the freedom to discriminate against those who wish to live authentically as both a LBGT an...
