Re: Sexual "Articles of Faith" for LDS Marital Intimacy

I feel that it is helpful for orthodox LDS couples to have a friendly source to get their questions answered, to help learn about their spouse's body and sexual responses (and their own), and lastly just to help them know that to be a sexual being is normal and healthy. I missed this comment. Yeah,...

Re: Sexual "Articles of Faith" for LDS Marital Intimacy

3 We believe God has ordained sex for the married couple. Nobody else should be involved. Funny, coming from a group of people that wrote a 130+ page document on sex. ;) I haven't read the full document, and I know it's from a LDS perspective, but lots of those articles feel like they shoehorn god,...

Re: Ministering Rules

This one is a little obscure to the topic of ministering, but it's specific language about married members of opposite gender/sex being alone: A man and a woman should not travel alone together for Church activities, meetings, or assignments unless they are married to each other or are both single. ...

Re: Ministering Rules

Your question prompted me to peruse the handbooks, and I found that they have been updated recently (moving from language about HT to language about ministering, probably updated for combined quorums too). I don't remember hearing any announcement about the change. Handbook 2 has info about minister...

Re: Rome Temple

I think one person's personal revelation can be different than another person's personal revelation because we are all unique and require different things. Not to over-trivialize with this example, but take two people that are allergic to peanuts. Person A receives revelation, inspiration, whatever ...

Re: Exposure / Apologists

1. How can you live a life that you feel is honorable and true while being an apologist? At past stops along my journey there was a point where I fit the classic definition of LDS apologist. I'd answer that apologists very much see themselves as being honorable and true to their beliefs. In fact I ...

Re: Rome Temple

This is off topic but I think the subject that we never broach at church is what we do if we receive personal revelation that isn't in harmony with the revelation a church leader receives. I think we often resolve that in our minds by making the assumption that a genuine personal revelation would al...

Re: Pros and Cons of Supplementing

Yes, I try to supplement outside of our church meetings. I think that was the overall spirit of the "home church" initiative, to get people to take the reigns of their own spiritual journies. In practice I see us paring home church back down to a program that recreates the types of instruction we re...

Re: Rome Temple

Any time a church member goes to Italy for vacation, the Rome temple will now be on the list of sites that they MUST see (so they can come back and tell everyone about it in F&T meeting). From the article Roy linked: "These apostles now will go all over the world and recap the experiences that they...
