Re: Should I feel guilty?

The way we talk about it at church it is taken to mean that success is sons going on missions, children marrying in temples, staying active, serving in callings and paying tithing and all that stuff. Yet, you can raise children who do all of that stuff and have bad relationships with your children....

Re: Theology of Star Wars

An interesting question I have is, what do you think you would have done in Rey's place coming from Rey's background and having had made the connections that she made?

Re: Theology of Star Wars

Rey actually saved at least some of the Jedi texts. They're last seen on the Falcon. And it's not clear that she did not study them while hanging out around Luke. The bigger question is not if she can restore the Jedi order (judging by today's teaser she can), but should she? Yeah, that was already...

Re: Theology of Star Wars

Guys, I find this Star Wars debate stuff fascinating but we seem to be crossing some lines here. We cannot attack each other. Period. And accusations of sexism against individual members are clearly an attack. Knock it off. I never defined anyone as sexist. I don't see Dande saying that either or a...

Re: Theology of Star Wars

According to our religion, YOU have more rights to give a NAME and a BLESSINGS to MY BABY that I BIRTHED. According to our religion, the bishop and other Church leaders "allow" us to give the blessings. Priesthood is near meaningless without the proper "keys", and "keys are held by other people. My...

Re: Theology of Star Wars

But then it goes ahead and flips itself. What the Jedi need to overcome the dark, is not the paradigm shift, it needs a powerful woman in charge. And THIS is what rubs me the wrong way. I feel the same way about women in the priesthood. Sure, if they are allowed to recieve the priesthood, and serve...

Re: Theology of Star Wars

Episode 8: Rey goes off to find the last Jedi, Luke. He trains her, but she doesn't really need it. She tells him that the Jedi were corrupt, that they allowed the dark side to become so powerful by only embracing the light, and after restarting the Jedi order and failing, Luke wants to do away wit...

Re: The Church Purge of the Latter Days

My theory with Joseph Smith is that sometimes when you see a vision of the infinite everything suddenly seems to be happening ultra fast, and from an infinite view, it is, but in our mortal view, it's actually generations, and so you come back thinking OMG GUYS IT"S HAPPENING. And it's like well,no,...

Re: My visions and visitations

Screwloose, I, too, have been attacked by Satan. I, too, have seen the Savior. I, too, have dealt with some hella wacky spiritual shiznit. I figured it was all part of me developing my spiritual gifts such as discernment and godly knowledge that was spoken of in my patriarchal blessing. I am not sch...
