Re: NAACP, the Church, and modern race relations

I've been thinking and reading a lot on this topic. In short, the Church would like credit for being against racism, but they are equally against eroding white privilege, facing their racist teachings, and doing anything that might go against GOP principles. https://wheatandtares.org/2020/06/17/i-th...

Re: Plandemic, conspiracies, and faith

Heber13: Yes, I did that post before the Plandemic video came out. It was kind of weird, but right before that, there were a bunch of podcasts talking about conspiracy theories, and I was seeing some things in FB and Twitter that seemed driven by conspiracy theory mindset, that knowing wink about wh...

Re: Plandemic, conspiracies, and faith

Before "Plandemic" I blogged about conspiracy theories that really seemed to be bubbling up recently: https://wheatandtares.org/2020/05/06/mo ... -theories/

Re: Thoughts and Prayers During a Difficult Time

Mom3: I'm so sorry. That's the roughest thing, worse than being sick oneself. My update. Nobody sick, thank goodness, but our business has taken a 40-50% hit on revenues. If we can obtain an SBA Loan (the forgivable ones), I won't have to lay off staff (which I really don't want to do). We already p...

Re: Musings after Conference

Mostly I found this particular GC to be a snoozer, particularly given the current circumstances. It seems incredibly out of step with what's actually happening in our lives, and that made it a bit jarring, but not in a good way. Life, even on lockdown, is much more poignant than anything I heard dur...

Re: Anybody else watch Messiah (Netflix)?

al Masijh says something I really liked in the show, and I looked it up. It's a C.S. Lewis quote:
“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth."

Re: COVID a sign of the last days?

Christians have been predicting the second coming is imminent for two thousand years. Barely had Jesus left the room when they started seeing signs of his return. In my teen years it was the Cold War. We expected the USSR would hit the button and there would be a nuclear winter, and that would usher...

Re: Anybody else watch Messiah (Netflix)?

I really liked it! Glad some of you have also seen it. I was surprised at Dermott Mulroney being a Mormon POTUS, but he seemed to hit some of the right tones. I love the thought experiment of trying to figure out if he's divine. When he does a miracle, it still feels like a trick. Is he for real or ...
