Re: I dont have a temple recommend.

I often wonder what I might see inside a temple though? Being the way I am. Remember how many visions and interactions with the divine have happened outside the temples (sacred grove, mountain tops, dessert mountains, while out hunting in nature, while sleeping in houses, on boats in the sea, etc e...

Re: Do you consider Church attendance mandatory for everyone?

Minyan Man, I've asked those questions about attendance and see that answers depend on who you talk to and their point of view. As was stated, there are exceptions and people understand that. And there is tradition, which many people allude to...they are saying basically "yes... everyone should go e...

Re: Two Hour Church

I agree with nibbler and mom3. The length of church was especially difficult because of the monotony and poor use of time. They might have tried changes to manuals and councils 3rd hour and a few things but they weren't enough. They needed more radical change for better content since church was so b...

Re: The Church to match box office sales ...

I wonder if members of the church in those areas are being pressured to go buy tickets and support it
(I don't like when they do that)

World wide, weekly church attendance is sliding. It's not just millennials. In our stake, the retiree's are often the ones to limit their church commitments.
From what you can see...do you think this change will help build attendance to sacrament meetings?

Re: The Church to match box office sales ...

Hm. Interesting. What I like: - They are doing more than just giving lip service to a cause that is hard to take serious when we've had racist history problems...they are actually using sacred church funds. That is a positive, to me. My skepticism is they try to pull a story out of the past with Emm...

Re: Why do you stay?

In learning to accept responsibility for my choices (because God's commandments no longer motivate me and I don't believe in Satan) has prompted lots of thinking and different paths to take. I like the way you phrased that. This is where some people can make choices to stay. The problems may or may...

It's very inspirational to have someone go through such unimaginable things...and come out with something positive to offer help to others.

Re: Those that leave the church.

If they stay active in the church and buy the Lamborghini, does the car then become a blessing? Prosperity gospel, right? I guess you could say one person's blessing is another person's curse. It seems to be accepted as long as you have attendance in church and obedience to commandments...a story c...

Re: Two Hour Church

I would think attendance would INCREASE. Perhaps it is a net increase, which is painful or sad for some, better for others. My equation: All the active folks that as nibbler said do what is told (attend 3 hr block or 2 hr block) +(Plus) People who were burned out in nursery or other callings that co...
