Re: Suggested alternatives to McConkie's Mormon Doctrine?

All good advice. I am looking for something with a topic by topic sections like Mormon Doctrine, but is NOT like it in that it is not like the way McConkie thought about most things.

My first thought was this, but then you specified you wanted it to be another book, and now I'm at a loss for what to recommend.
That was funny.

Suggested alternatives to McConkie's Mormon Doctrine?

I want to give a gift to an LDS friend that can replace their Mormon Doctrine by McConkie for obvious reasons. Any suggestions of a book that is like it? So far the closest thing I could find is this book https://www.amazon.com/LDS-Beliefs-Doctrinal-Robert-Millet/dp/1609080599 ... But I have no idea...

Re: If Church's stance on LGBT persons is an Issue for you, how do you Deal with it?

Great comments, lots of food for thought. I would like to think that the LDS church is at least headed in the direction of being more accepting of gay people (which seems to be the case). There stance seems to be basically against "acting on their same sex attraction," same as any sexual activities ...

Re: If Church's stance on LGBT persons is an Issue for you, how do you Deal with it?

The last two comments are very hard to hear and still want to go back to the LDS church. I am resigned. I don't know anyone who is gay but I have empathy for gay people. The only way I could justify going back to the LDS church, by that I mean just attending and being part of the culture, is to say ...

Re: If Church's stance on LGBT persons is an Issue for you, how do you Deal with it?

"Promiscuity" is a natural result of cultural prohibitions on committed relationships, especially when all monogamous relationships are considered promiscuous. Really strong nonconformists rebel against such prohibitions, but most people don't have the ability or desire to fight such a battle. Just...

Re: If Church's stance on LGBT persons is an Issue for you, how do you Deal with it?

I work to move the needle of understanding in classes, etc. I watch and time myself carefully, but I have been smilingly vocal about accepting and embracing our non-heterosexual family members. We have eons of training to overcome. That can take time. I don't love the policy one bit. I also compreh...

Re: Was I really like that? Yes.

I wish I posted more here (or at all, really), but let me give my heartfelt thanks to those regular posters on this board who have literally given me hope when the world looked hopeless. I lurk on this site EVERY SINGLE DAY, and it has helped me immensely in my new spiritual journey. Anyhoo, I was ...
