Re: Doubting my Patriarchal Blessing

He went into more explaination as to why this works, but my main point is this: Prophecy NEVER fails. Never ever. It's the nature of prophecy; whether you're LDS, a Wiccan, or a Haruspex. To refine this a bit: prophecies from the authorities in your own group never fail. Other groups' prophecies ar...

Re: Quinn's Research on LDS Church Finances

I get what your saying, but to me it feels like they have gone way beyond a grasshopper and it feels more like an frog that just can't get enough to eat. Especially when they stand up in conference and say, "If you don't have money to pay the rent or feed the kids, pay your tithing first." I think ...

Re: Busy in the Beehive

I do not think that the busy work is intentional to not let us have study time. I think similarly about anything with a negative side. The negative side is almost never intentional. A few months after we moved wards we went to our original ward X-mas party as well as our new ward x-mas party. It wa...

So why is there so much crying at weddings?
Usually it's onions or lemons. I'm surprised nobody told you. I guess they expected you to just know about it somehow.

Web server permissions problem?

I can't view private messages, open my control panel, or even log out: I get error 403 Forbidden. The offending URL seems to be this one:

I think sometimes the house can't be altered for the better until half of it or more is demolished.

Re: Boy Scouts allow Girls now

I don't really feel much about this. I didn't like scouting as a youth, and I only tolerated it as an adult. This change might diversify the experience more to appeal more to girls, which would be a good thing. My first reaction to the news was to wonder whether the Church pulled out of Boy Scouts p...

The men will be dressing a bit like Snap on the cereal box, which is kinda cool, I guess.

Re: The Church doesn't feel like a good investment

I would be a little more okay with getting little to nothing in return if I was not promised as much as I am. The issue is that so many people in the church promise blessings which they have no foresight or knowledge to be able to promise. There is a lot of "If you do X, you will get Y" which is wr...
