Re: **Update** to Forced Polygamy

Yeah. I don't want to remove my name because I'm looking for an excuse. I just want the Church to put free agency above policy. PERIOD. It's become a corporation. When the Stake president gets a call from an "analyst" it tells me how removed my concerns are from getting to policy makers (the Brethre...

Re: **Update** to Forced Polygamy

BTW: Thanks Silent Dawn for you kind insights.. I just wish I could feel peace at a church that doesn't honor my free agency. I wish I was told when I married my ex in the temple that regardless of her actions, I would have to stay sealed to her. In the interest of full disclosure. I made a sealing ...

Re: **Update** to Forced Polygamy

When I say she gets to determine my spiritual future....I MEAN NOW. The church defers to her CURRENT concerns about what happens to the children as far as sealing. The church is refusing to grant me a cancellation NOW basing that on an afterlife policy that isn't understood well. I do not believe po...

**Update** to Forced Polygamy

Here is an update to my previous thread "Forced Polygamy": My SP asked me to write a letter to the First Presidency (FP) explaining my desire to have my free agency honored by reversing their initial decision to only grant me a sealing clearance instead of a cancellation. I wrote that letter stating...

Re: Forced Polygamy in the modern LDS Church

Ray, yes. My SP stated that if my ex repented the Lord would remember her sins no more and our sealing would still be valid. That's why he recommended I get a cancellation.

The whole polygamy thing is wrong morally and spiritually. I agree.

Re: Forced Polygamy in the modern LDS Church

Wow. Hawkgrrrl. Amazing insight. Amen. Amen. And Ray et al....thank you to for your insights. If we can all agree that none of us really know what the afterlife truly holds, the only thing we can know for certainty is this life. And if we have spiritual rituals like polygamy that we can all agree ar...

Re: Forced Polygamy in the modern LDS Church

That is exactly the issue. If they don't know what is going to happen in the next life... why not honor my agency in this life? The only thing we know is this life. Free will should trump policy especially if it's not doctrinal. I read you last post 3 times and still don't see how my free will is be...

Re: Forced Polygamy in the modern LDS Church

To Ray and SD and others.....this is a great conversation BUT one thing keeps getting lost in the discussion. It is the single thing angering me and trying my faith......FREE AGENCY. If the Lord is going to sort it out in the end (and there will be billions of people to sort out "in the end") .........

Re: Unconditional Love of God in a performance-based religio

Amen Ray. I want to belong to The Church of RAY DEGRAW of Latter-Day fallen Saints. I truly think ..... "Obedience with exactness" "Be ye therefore perfect.." and it's all true or it's a fraud" statements and themes that are very pervasive throughout our culture and lesson manuals are at the root of...
