Re: What is Priestcraft? Is THIS Priestcraft?

If this story is true, Elder Oaks needs to be careful about evoking the spirit of Joseph Smith in this context. There would be so many reasons JS could not hold a calling in that Stake, or ANY stake in the church!

Re: Rome Temple

If it becomes a tourist site for non-members, like the SLC temple, it will be worth the cost. I don't see that happening. I just can't imagine a person coming home from a Italian vacation, and telling their friends “We went to Rome and saw the Vatican, the Colosseum, and Trevi Fountain. Oh, and we ...

Re: Rome Temple

No matter the cost, I'm sure the Rome Temple is the most expensive ever in modern times when looked at on a per capita basses. There is only 10 stakes in all of Italy. There is more mebers in my county in Southern California than all of Italy.

Re: Special Sunday School class

One of the interesting points was why it takes the brethren so long to change course? Why do they now trend behind social progressiveness where once, in JS time you could say the church was ahead of its time. Why does it require people like Sam Young or Kate Kelly, who perhaps push the envelope, bu...

Re: Rome Temple

I expect that during the tourist season, the majority of patrons will be visitors from the US. Much like the Nauvoo temple is mostly a tourist spot temple with visitors.

The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that "by proving contraries, truth is made manifest" (HC 6:248).
