Re: Proselytizing without Eternal Family mention

IMHO - I don't think most 18 an 19 year old missionaries even think of the complexity of the case nor even know the "policies"/beliefs of the church. They only think of the "normal" two people married with a few kids. I have always found it hard to figure out the day to day afterlife relationships w...

Re: Why the Church cannot change...at least not too much

Some of the polygamist sects (in Utah/Arizona) also believe that that this was another example of the LDS church caving into pressure. They consider themselves the "real" church where they still practice polgyamy and don't think Blacks should be allowed to go into the temple or get the priesthood. S...

Re: Comments on Mormon Stories podcasts on the Givens

... The Givens' Mormonism is not the Mormonism I experience. That was one of the times listening to the podcast that I did a bit of a yell in my car. I have read things from those that have been through faith crises, they warn those just now going through their individual faith crisis that the chur...

Re: Why the Church cannot change...at least not too much

I think two or three senior leaders might need to be gone before major changes can occur in isolation, and those leaders need to be replaced by people who see the world more like a few of the senior apostles and most of the junior apostles, but I truly think the changes will continue more quickly t...

Re: Why the Church cannot change...at least not too much

Gerald, I think you are right on many of your points. I am certainly one for pushing for change in the church, but there are those that if change comes too quickly (i.e. temple and priesthood ban for blacks) that people will splinter off (such as some of the polygamist factions that feel they are ho...

Re: Why do some discussions have a flame?

I thought you were saying the tone was “flaming” - as in angry. But you are asking about the icon by some topics. My assumption is that it is indicating this topic is “hot” as in active topic with lots of comments.

Re: Here we go again.

Yep. That feeling of "if you are IN the group, you can be asked for almost anything and you should never take offense." There is always going to be some of that and probably your bishop doesn't even realize things like the keyboard player is needed for you and the drummer. But it is the extent that ...

Comments on Mormon Stories podcasts on the Givens

I think you all know I am a podcast freak - not just LDS oriented ones. But I did just listen to one of the latest Mormon Stories on Reactions to Terryl and Fiona Givens Firesides Several times as I was listening to this I had a thought and then that question would be asked. As an example, I started...
