Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

The following article appears in Deseret News today: https://www.deseretnews.com/article/900028690/were-correcting-a-name-church-president-russell-m-nelson-tells-latter-day-saints-in-canada.html The gist of the article is fine, it's about RMN commenting on his "impression" while visiting Canada. And...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

It was a big topic during PH today. I came dangerously close to making a comment but people were loving the news and I didn't want to ruin the spirit of the meeting. I figure we're still riding that wave of excitement of there being a new revelation in town. If this topic spills into subsequent wee...

ETB called it the "Book of Marmon"
I love the Marmons so much.
Maybe Gawd told him to say it that way. :D

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

This thought occurred to me: I think the bigger struggle with dropping Mormon comes outside the church as opposed to inside. The RLDS changed their name to the Community of Christ in 2001. How long did it take before that was regularly accepted and used by the world? (Most of the world probably didn...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I do find it somewhat ironic that this is being framed as a revelation - but it is basically the same thing that Elder Nelson asked of us way back in 1990. Just my opinion, but I think RMN is prone to pulling the revelation card as a power play. On the other hand, I suppose it does depend on one's ...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

Like Mom says, I've heard this before. As I recall the last time it was tried the church finally relented and decided it was OK to use Mormon to refer to ourselves, but not "Mormon Church." I don't disagree with that, and I don't think others will stop calling us Mormons no matter what we say. Despi...

Re: My Lonely Search for God

I don't have a lot of time at the moment but I wanted to say welcome. I relate to much of what you said, as will others here. I agree with you, the pure doctrine is in the CoJCoLDS but it is sometimes so buried under the other "stuff" that it's hard to find. This community has been a great help to m...

Re: Hard Sayings and Safe Spaces: Amazing BYU Devotional

Bro Huntsman specifically pointed out, he wasn't referring to "safe spaces" in the way it is commonly used in society. He meant it in "creating environments that are, on the one hand, places of faith where we can seek and nurture testimony, but are also, on the other, places where our sisters and b...

Re: Repentance, confessions, and letting go of the past

My problem with this is that there is a formula and procedure they use, right? I've wanted to see what this is like but I suspect they'd sniff out a non-Catholic quickly. I'd do it on vacation somewhere else. From what I understand, the Catholic priesthood will usually accept anyone's confession, C...
