Re: Sharing observations about a recent temple square visit

The film didn't emphasize the incorrectness of other faiths. I'm torn about this. While it sounds inclusive, or at least, less arrogant or exclusionary than the "don't join any of the churches because they are ALL wrong", it's not what we believe. It's what I believe. Reading all the accounts revea...

Re: Sharing observations about a recent temple square visit

Thanks for sharing. Each time I visit Utah I also come away with "It's a nice place to visit, but...." It is beautiful, but I also very much like the greenery of the Northeast US. I visited the church museum last summer and was similarly impressed. Likewise I visited the Priesthood Restoration site ...

Re: Members Can Support Gay Marrriage: Elder Christofferson

Isn't this just the old article from 2015 or am I missing something? Either way I think it's still relevant.

Re: Strolling Toward Church

Welcome back. Your bishop does sound amazing, you are very fortunate. Regarding repentance: I have come to understand that repentance is much more about the desire to change and/or do better than it is about sackcloth and and ashes or flagellation. It is almost nothing like what Miracle of Forgivene...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

The SP told DT: ...Furthermore, he said he had told my bishop that he didn't want me to serve in any callings requiring me to teach in any capacity and that I shouldn't pray in church either. Then he called my wife in and told me and her that he thought I was just being prideful and that was the ca...

Re: Fanny Alger, First Plural Wife?

My personal opinion? This was adultery, plain and simple. Emma didn't know or agree to it. Oliver (who had been JS's right hand and wasn't yet on the outs - that came because of this) called it what it was. It wasn't honest, open, straight-up "plural marriage" (if any of that crap is truly honest)....

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

People who are under discipline - formal or informal - are expected to refuse when asked to do something they are restricted from. Unlike older times, the ward is not informed when someone is under disciplinary action and it's likely no one beyond the bishop and perhaps his counselors know someone h...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

As a side note, I would love it and laugh so hard, if they brought you into Church Disciplinary Council for "praying in Church". If I were you, I'd volunteer every Sunday School. They would do a disciplinary council because he is not obeying the council of his SP in that circumstance. I recognize y...
