Re: Mental Exercise

I would say the bigger issue for me is the reaction of members, especially top leaders, to my doubts. I still do attend, but mainly for my wife's sake.

Re: Gina Colvin disciplinary council

She had publicly criticized Latter-day Saint leaders, including President Russell M. Nelson, preferring Jesus to a “white man in Salt Lake City.” I take it that Ms Colvin is herself white? Why does she have to be racist about this? People's definition of "white" differ greatly. At one point if you ...

Re: Bill Reel about to get excommunicated? >:-(

It does seem that that criticizing church leaders in public is a line that the top leaders will not tolerate.

But that does remind me of a quote that was attributed to Voltaire (but might not be from him)

Re: Prophets rule the roost

The corporate manager in me looks a bit at Nelson and he is doing just what a corporation head should do. Shaking up a few things can get people excited. I do think he has done that with a few of the changes. People like ministering as they don't feel guilty every month. Two hour church - anybody wi...

Re: Help (In a Good Way)

It tells in a loving way not to react to someone not believing something by telling/signalling "You MUST BELIEVE!!!" Also reiterate Uchtdorf's talk on Come Join with us mentioning that we shouldn't assume that j...
