Don't want to go tho tithing settlement

I thought they were mandatory too. The ward clerk didn't really give me an option at all lol. Not if I wanted an appointment but when I wanted my appointment.

Do you pay tithing?

Just one mans perspective here. I've thought about the "increase" issue and I think it was morphed to 10% of your gross because frankly that's the maximum that the church could turn that request into monetarily. Not to be the anti church guy but it's pretty apparent that turning 10% increase into 10...

Do you pay tithing?

This was a hot button in my home recently. I Am a convert and about two years old in the church. My wife is born and raised LDS and is blindly obedient to the church and church leaders. I paid 10% gross for a while and even though I'm a skeptic I readily admit that our life financially did get bette...

Re: Tithing: a Costly Leap of Faith

Specifics, as I understand them: - The beginning of tithing is to give all your surplus to the church, retaining only what you need for your operating expenses. - The 'standing law', then comes into effect which is that for the rest of their lives, they are to give one-tenth of their "interest" ann...

Re: Garments and body image

The problem is that what people are told is up to the whim of the temple worker who talks to them that day. I would really like if what was written stayed the same, and nothing was added to it. What we really need is consistency! I think the problem is that we are willing to accept and open ourselv...

Re: Garments and body image

The handbook and temple interview both said specifically to wear the garments when doing yard work. They also say to put them back on after swimming and not to lounge around the yard or house without them. This annoys me to no end. Is it immoral to feel the sun and wind on your body and skin?
