Re: New Teaching: Qualification

I think this concept, particularly the notion of "qualifying for eternal life" (!) demonstrates a lack of understanding of grace and probably not understanding Paul's writings at minimum. (BTW, eternal life is a gift for all who have lived. It's exaltation that's just for the top dogs.) I did a post...

Re: My Best & Worst List

When it comes to open canon, I think it's a huge mixed blessing. The attitude of it is helpful (in not taking the scriptures too seriously), but let's be honest. So much of this stuff just doesn't hold up. Jane Austen provides more insight into human nature and virtue than the Book of Mormon (I'll p...

My Best & Worst List

I did a post on the ideas and other features that I really love about Mormonism that you can't find in other religions, as well as those that I think are the pits. Here's a link: https://wheatandtares.org/2019/04/17/th ... mormonism/

Someday I hope Tom Christofferson receives the wholeness he bravely gave up. If we made Saints in this church - he would be my suggestion.

Re: Garments and body image

Please educate yourself or at minimum, don't assume you know more than real women who have women's bodies . I have nothing against designing more comfortable garments. I have a wife. She is going through menopause. You don't think I know the issues? I'm pretty sure that all those men who designed w...

Re: Garments and body image

There seems to be a tendancy to treat every problem as if it is insurmountable. I don't believe in that philosophy. Certainly there is a cost to faith. If your faith were free, it would be of little value to you. It is all too easy to come up with excuses. Laban can kill a hundred men; he can certa...

I read this last week and loved it. It was so real. If anyone thinks that Elders are angelic, just read this. It was a great read.
Aw thanks!

Re: The Church Purge of the Latter Days

Fascinating! All the more reason that the dinky little mass produced Christus statue was an odd gift to give to the Pope on their visit.

Re: The Courage This Change Took

SD: "What they found was that most missionaries hit their peak baptisms in their last six months. So, just when missionaries were getting effective, they finished their missions, leaving all that potential unused." That makes it particularly galling that women only serve for 18 months rather than 24...

Dande48:
"did you know we are the richest religious organization on earth?"
Maybe if you only consider liquid assets. Have you not been to the Vatican? They are literally sitting on a stockpile of priceless artwork and statuary, to the point that a bunch of it is gathering dust in closets.
