Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

Dande48 is correct about the doctrinal result of ending up in a lower kingdom, if membership is not restored, but, if we are being technical and precise, Dehlin was flat-out wrong to call it being "condemned to Hell". First, lots of people come back I to the LDS Church after excommunication, and th...

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

So I'd be willing to say, according to Church doctrine, excommunication is a condemnation to hell (meaning spirit prison and a lower kingdom), which can only be reversed through repentance, re-baptism and the restoration of blessings. There are some technicalities I'm sure I'm missing, but I'd say ...

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

Yeah- it made sense to utilize him, I just didn't like how he handled it. I disagree with him on what excommunication means, in particular. He said it's a condemnation to hell, which I don't think there's any doctrinal support of.

Re: Believer (HBO)

The documentary about Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons. I watched it and liked it. A major premise is that we need more voices and I agree. I also cried at a couple of the teen suicide stories. Even if the Utah higher suicide rate has not actually increased or is not due to the church's LGBTQ stance...

That's what I did. They have a 2 week free trial.

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

I haven't seen a thread on it, I'll have to look. I don't think blame is a useful concept in any death. My family is deeply affected by suicide, and no matter what, a family will always ask why, what could we have done differently, etc. I didn't feel like Believer was blaming family at all. I didn't...

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

I saw this- lots of good things in it. I do agree though- they're avoiding a cause and talking about a symptom.

Have you watched "Believer"? It came out last week on HBO. I think Dan Reynolds did an excellent job for the most part.

Re: Pathways Degree Program being discontinued

Can't read through the thread because I'm on the run, but I believe WGU has your program. It's all online, work at your own pace, and cheap. I got my degree last year, it was a great school for me.

I’m at a point in my journey where I feel a great desire to connect with like-minded (and “like-hearted”)...

Re: New ward, new you?

It really is a travesty that we all focus so much on what I call the so-called “visible“ sins. Such as WoW, Sunday activities, and in this case, tatoos. Right? Especially since the visible "sins" are often the least offensive to God, and the judging is far worse. From what I can understand. The one...
