Same-sex Relationships on Family Search

https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/familysearch-document-same-sex-family-relationships Whatever, but the most disturbing parts of the article for me are, “in accordance with the Church’s doctrine...” or “consistent with the Church’s doctrine...” When did we officially move from Christ’...

Re: Which excuse is usually more valid?

Agree with the other comments - I would question the validity of those stories. Disgruntled people often exaggerate or contrive stories for effect. :problem: 1 - if those stories were true, we would have heard of many, many lawsuits against the church for the alleged preventable deaths. 2 - my husba...

Take Your Vitamin Pills, Get Some Rest...

When I first heard those words, I had high hopes. Maybe I was too naive, but I was expecting new doctrinal revelation. And maybe that is still coming, but as of now... We have seen several administrative changes. I LOVE the temple changes, even though I no longer attend the temple and have no plans ...

Seminary Manual vs. non-LDS Scripture Commentary

I am teaching seminary. I like the teacher manual for some things, but I find that I actually gain more insight and love for the scriptures when I use online commentary by those of other faiths. The commentaries that I read delve into word syntax, historical background and, best of all, thought-prov...

New Young Men Theme

Did anyone else catch that the new YM theme states that "I am a beloved son of God" ? Whereas the new YW theme states that "I am a beloved daughter of heavenly parents" which is a change from stating: "We are daughters of our Heavenly Father" ? The YW have been brought forward into having "heavenly ...

Tithing Settlement and how bishops report it

Just thought that others would like to know that at the end of the year, bishops must log in to their Leader/Clerk website and mark how each member should be declared in regards to tithing. I think the options are: full, partial, none. No where that I can see is there an algorithm that automatically...

Re: Changing What We Pray For

I don't have much to add except that our ward experienced this similar situation years ago. Husband diagnosed with rare cancer in February. Ward prayers, fasting, blessings that promised healing, etc. Two trips out of state to 1 of only 2 worldwide specialists for this type of cancer. Chemo, radiati...

Re: Getting back into the scriptures = Change?

IMO exclusively relying on legalistic interpretation of existing scripture to move forward prevents us from receiving revelation and writing scripture we need for our day. Are we looking for greater light and knowledge or are we assuming that god has already revealed everything and the answer is to...
