Re: I May Throw Up...

Today was F&TM in our ward and there were several about doing as Pres. Nelson "inviting" (apparently read commanded by some people) members to read the BoM before the end of the year. After the first couple I was thinking to myself "I don't remember him saying that." I was texting during the meetin...

Re: I May Throw Up...

I don't get the point of the social media fast. It is essentially to "get our priorities straight" (my words). if we're not spending so much time on social media, we could spend it on doing other things like reading the BoM. And that brings me to a related point. Today was F&TM in our ward and ther...

Re: I dont have a temple recommend.

In order to goto the temple my church said I need to attend church every Sunday for a year. It's too hard, pretty much impossible. I'm not a crowd person. Going where there are tons of people gathered, is like information overload to my senses. I get extreme anxiety and need to leave for air. I oft...

Re: Do you consider Church attendance mandatory for everyone?

Church attendance is a temple recommend question, but as we know there is nuance and leadership roulette involved with those. Necessary to salvation? I don't think so in the pure sense. For me, the sacrament has a deep symbolic meaning and I do feel I gain from regularly partaking. On the other hand...

Re: Why I chose this forum.

I chose this site because it was the first lds forum I could find after a 4 hour search online. The lds forum I need doesnt exist. I would have to create it myself and deal with all the phoney baloney fakers out there that just want to poke fun or discredit the church of jesus christ of latter day ...

Re: The Church to match box office sales ...

If forgiven by God (and I'm not sure God forgives organizations, I do believe God forgives individuals), there is no need for an apology. I've heard this repeatedly, but I'm not sure I like the sentiment. It's too often used as a doctrinal way to place the blame on the victim. "God has forgiven me,...

Re: The Church to match box office sales ...

It might be "repentance", but it's a different brand of repentance than they teach over the pulpit. It's like when a man becomes afraid his wife is going to find out about an affair from a few years prior. He brings her flowers, does the dishes, and steps up his "husband" game, so she won't believe...
