Re: Letter to my kids

Thanks for this - It's great for me to see this perspective and, what I would consider, a level-headed attitude. I realize that it's taken you many years to gain this perspective and attitude. I truly hope I can continue in my growth, as you have, and be as confident in my beliefs so that I can shar...

Re: The thing that started it all

Really great thoughts so far - I know my topic/question was ambiguous but, I sincerely appreciate the feedback thus far. I will read both of the books mentioned (thank you greatly for that) and I definitely agree with that new perspective... humans trying to explain celestial things that can't be ex...

The thing that started it all

Fairly new here although I've lurked for a long time. I'm super thankful for the commentary I've received on posts that I've already made. Wanted to get everyone's thoughts on what really got me started researching doctrine in more depth... The Kingdoms. I like to think I'm a good person by most acc...

Re: Examples of visions then apostacy in the Bible?

These are great thoughts. Thanks for replying. I love the perspective, something I definitely needed. Still not sure I've processed all of it or made up my mind on this topic but, I now have a lot more to think about. It's been a tough few months trying to reestablish my beliefs and thoughts. Thanks...

Re: Examples of visions then apostacy in the Bible?

Technically you could argue that Adam and Eve were the first. :P I guess you're right! That's embarrassing!! I guess I should clarify a little bit. I'm having a hard time believing that somebody could see a celestial being and be told something or learn something and then years later forget what th...

Examples of visions then apostacy in the Bible?

I've been struggling recently with the concept that one can see God (or another celestial being) and then "forget" later in life what they experienced. Examples like the witnesses of the BOM or a number of examples in the BOM like Laman and Lemual. My Bible knowledge is not sufficient enough to be c...

Re: Intro/ looking for advice

I wanted to say "Thank-you" to those that responded. I've made my way through the essay posted on this site about how to stay in the church after a crisis of faith. That, along with some of your suggestions, has helped me immensely. While I still have some questions and anxiety's about a few things,...

Intro/ looking for advice

Hello. To preface, I have a feeling this is going to be quite the lengthy post. While I hope I get some help, I understand if you breeze right past this post due to its length. I think in some ways just putting this all out in the world may help in a lot of ways so, thanks in advance to those who re...
