Re: Tom Christofferson on the policy change and Easter

See this is what gets me. We are expected to do all kinds of things because everything is inspired. Yet there are "unanswered questions" about people who are not main stream sexually oriented our religion can't answer. If this life is the time to prepare to meet God, and there are so many people th...

Re: New Teaching: Qualification

I understand "being saved" in the context that most of my Christian friends use it as being inducted into team Jesus with all the trappings. For the rest of your life, any "mistake" you might make is already known and paid for as long as you do not sever yourself from the team. Does that mean accor...

Probably another semantics issue.
My definition of LDS scripture/doctrine comes down to whatever I could say is scripture (or not scripture) in SS or over the pulpit without getting lynched.

And now I wonder... would I want a more open canon? I bet the first thing that would go into a newly open canon would be the proclamation.

Re: New Teaching: Qualification
