Re: Recent Church communication regarding Finances

This is a nice article. I had read the transcript of the actual remarks and what I like about this article is that it consolidates and summarizes what was said. This info was presented much more haphazardly in the actual interview. That said, I don't think anyone argues that it doesn't take money to...

Re: Scouting in Bankruptcy

If scoutmaster Bob abused kids, go after scoutmaster Bob. If scoutmaster Bob abused kids, the BSA knew about it, and the BSA did nothing, go after the BSA. I think it's more this, similar to the Catholic Church. I think they often knew and looked the other way, reassigned some perverts, or simply t...

Re: Handbook Highlights from John Dehlin

I do like most of the changes regarding what were formally known as disciplinary councils (especially the high councilors are no longer required!). And I like the seemingly more equal treatment of sexual sins/transgressions. I also note that there is a little softening of the language regarding wort...

Anybody else watch Messiah (Netflix)?

I finished the last episode of season 1 today. I can't wait for season 2. I like that it's a great mix of faith (with some faith crisis thrown in, but I won't spoil that), international intrigue complete with spies, and just plain interesting human stories. Occasional f-bombs, some blood. Although t...

Re: The Name of the Church

I think it's very similar to coke.com. I think the previous owner of churchofjesuschrist.org (and owners of similar domain names) know exactly what they have. The church did some early buying of their own (mormon.org, for example) to stave off such a scenario. FWIW, the GA did present it as a miracl...

Re: The Name of the Church

2. I'm glad to know stake conferences are being used to share the successes of the political and business structure of the church, instead of on Jesus Christ and the unique blessings the church claims to provide of the priesthood, eternal life and salvation. :) In fairness this was shared in the le...

Users won't need to reenter their password each time they access it, but will need to do the user agreement each day. LDSaccess will rema...

Re: Another idea for what it's worth.

Personally, I have no problem with it - as something done outside this forum for anyone here who wants to participate. I also wouldn't have a problem posting a link to it here - again, as long as it was set up outside our forum and was not affiliated with us in any way. We can't do it as an officia...
