Re: NYT article: John Dehlin & Kate Kelly face discipline

Wornoutsneakers, I do think many are careful who they trust their opinions to. I know a great many in my area, especially among the younger generation. There may very well be some right around you who sense your contentment with the way things are and don't wish to upset you or upset themselves to ...

Re: NYT article: John Dehlin & Kate Kelly face discipline

I have refrained from replying on this thread, because to be honest i just dont feel like i know enough about either person to speak about it. That and i feel like i am minority on this issue. But i have decided to voice a few opinions. What strikes me as very interesting is the assumption that most...

Re: Ugly Call From The Folks

intothelight, just a random thought. if they are going on a mission (im sorry if you mentioned where i didnt catch it), i wonder how well they are going to do of bringing in former members into the ward, branch, etc, where they go. I hope im not straying too far from your thread, and i apologize, bu...

Re: Could this all be false?

I would also like to quote, again a great quote from Marcus Aurelius that bears on this OP: Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you s...

Re: Where I'm at...not sure what to do next

I can sympathize. I compare this period of my life with Jesus' time in the wilderness. Jesus' period in the wilderness occurred some time after his baptism. My FC was after my baptism and after being truly dedicated to the church. The spirit "drove" Jesus into the wilderness. I often felt driven to...

Re: Sexual sin outside of marriage

1) Go ahead and plan a temple wedding and abstain from sex for a month or so. Don't worry about confession, since you will be able to say you are following the Law of Chastity when you have the temple recommend interview. Seriously, if investigators are having sex and get married to be able to be b...

Re: Could this all be false?

Not to lead you further down the rabbit hole but if it's all false (including the concept of god) then you don't really have to worry about that either. I wasnt saying that the whole concept of God is false, just what we, mormons, purport to be true. Like latter day prophets, that Joseph Smith saw ...

Re: Could this all be false?

I love it, I hate it, I can't imagine life without it. Yes LDSness could very well be completely made up - but it won't hurt me if it is. It gives too many gifts to be abandoned. Mom3 i think you hit the nail on the head of why i continue to go to church. I love the spirit i feel there. The few tim...
