Re: Teach them to walk in the light...

Kids need love, and examples of living values and doing what is right. That can be done as faithful members of the church up on the bridge, or as your dream showed you...should you not stay on the bridge...it is not fatal...you float and you survive. Just from different viewpoints. The greatest part...

Re: Others comments

Glad you were able to get that out and share it with us. I think there are multiple reasons a person can go to church, and one valid one is to be in the group and belong and know what is going on and connect with others. Nothing wrong with that. Yes, we should go to worship, but there are various wa...

Re: 9/17 Nelson Devotional

4) God appoints prophets and apostles to communicate his love and his laws. This is where the devotional derails and reveals what I believe to be the point of the devotional. I'll slow down here: a) "Our commission as apostles is to teach nothing but truth. That may be their commission...it doesn't...

Re: Is It Arrogant to Pray?

I think He wants us to acknowledge His hand in all things. I like this thought as well. There is something that is healthy for us to think beyond our self, and into a universal collective or an almighty God that can help us broaden our thinking and our situation in life. Mystical things are helpful...

Re: Kirby is the best

I find it interesting she goes to church and stays involved since the ex, and believes it is the one true church. Kind of interesting to me. I respect her.

Exactly. Well said. If you have your reasons for wanting to be there, that's all that matters. It doesn't have to be others' reasons.

Re: Study doctrine and change behavior

Just remember the road you were on got you to where you are now, so that you can ask these questions and move ahead.

You don't have to determine if the past road was right or not, only which road ahead you wish to travel on.

Re: Are we the church of the WoW?

The metaphor I came up with is weight loss. If you aren't needing to lose weight, but a friend is, you don't need to watch what you eat. But especially if you know they really like food, you should be supportive and not (for example) order a really rich dessert if the two of you are going out to ea...

Re: Stuck in a rock and a hard place

Man, you've been thru a lot.

I'm sorry for that. It isn't supposed to be like that in church. Or...maybe it is...so we can see it for what it is and help us learn to put it in perspective.

I don't know anymore.

But you're strong. It's inspiring to see you're still trying.
