Re: The Source of My Discomfort

Thought provoking to see this. I had what I considered a good day at church today because I caught up with an old friend, enjoyed some of the sacrament meeting talks (on service), teacher training was a decent discussion, and in YM's I helped the youth set some goals. In my TBM day's it would have ...

Re: This article broke my shelf

I don't blame the church for my depression and anxiety problems however when I read an article such as this about spiritual abuse, I realize that the church has been a contributing factor. At the very least, it doesn't provide me with any help or comfort. There are many other articles and books tha...

Re: Nature of God

I have been trying to write this post in my head for about 2 weeks now. One of the things I learned in studying the Old Testament through the Yale Great Courses class last year is that the Bible narrative is very fluid and very dynamic. Moses is not prophesying about the same things that Isaiah, or...

Re: Struggling

One last clarification/elucidation. I'll share the story because I hope for insight. As I said I work with children. I have a family I work with where dad was abusive. The mother divulged the abuse to her bishop. The bishop told the Stake President who called the father. The father went home and sod...

Thanks everyone. Do you feel like denying your truth has a long term negative affect on your soul?

Re: Was the priesthood ban revelation?

This is really hard issue for me. Brigham taught the ban as if it was revelation, using clear wording to that effect. So it begs the question, if a prophet can teach false doctrine believing it comes from God, and members can hear and accept that doctrine and get a confirmation from the spirit that...

Was the priesthood ban revelation?

We have various Proclamations and First Presidency statements that people refer to. One of my favorite is an oft forgotten Official Statement by the First Presidency. I tried to locate it in Proclamation format, no luck. I did find it in the following think. Enjoy. http://emp.byui.edu/SATTERFIELDB/...

Struggling

Where to start? While I am still hanging on, I am mostly doing so because I fear committing social suicide. My in-laws would disown me, and I would break the heart of my parents. I read Matthew Chap 7 a lot, I feel like it outlines the savior's recipe of finding the true followers of Christ. I am bo...
