Re: The Church and transsexualism

Tough questions. I think there may be a disconnect. I'm not trying to be dismissive, but is the intent of the questions to get an answer or do the questions represent a vehicle to express your point of view? If it's looking for answers: There's no real answer to most questions that are related to wh...

Re: 9/13 Rasband face to face - the restoration proclamation

Ha. "The prophet will never lead us astray." is an example of how the prophet actually can lead people astray. :angel:

Re: Where is everyone?

There have been a few newsroom items and other things during the shutdown. I'll try to find a few and spin up some threads.

Re: The Church and transsexualism

I think it will take another 10-20 years before a shift occurs in the church leadership. Thread tangent. This comment made me curious so I whipped up a quick spreadsheet. Assuming all current leaders live to be 95, this is roughly how things would play out (of course some will live longer, some sho...

Re: The Church and transsexualism

To be more concise I won't preface every sentence in this post with "some people," "I think," or "probably not the case, but..." ( :P ) You'll have to imagine it. As always, I speak from a place of ignorance. I think there are many factors that contribute. When I say "people" below I'm referring to ...

Re: Do you ever feel forgiven?

I've walked many miles in those shoes. The process is going to be different for everyone but...

I feel god's forgiveness when I reach the point where I can forgive myself.

Re: Where is everyone?

It's probably a combo of a lot of stuff. I think lots of people find in-person support these days. That and what others have mentioned. Less church, less goings on. We've resumed in-person meetings in our area and the procedures that have been put in place are as good as can be hoped for. We're doin...

Re: Wouldn't it be easier just to tell us?

I'll share this, seeing as how my avatar is borrowed from the show. From the show Futurama, Godfellas episode. When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all. In the episode, through a series of events a "god entity" teaches one of the show's characters that god cannot be...

Re: Missionary Work in light of the Pandemic

To piggyback on what Roy said, I haven't read much about it, but... In 1839 there was a malaria epidemic which lasted for approximately 2 yrs . It sounds like the saints struggled with malaria for a prolonged period of time even with the blessings that were occurring. I can see the benefits of minis...
