Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

Great quotes nibbler!!

We would get greater traction with a response like "Mormon means more good" than asking everyone to call us "The restored gospel of Jesus Christ"

Thumbs up to GBH! :thumbup:

Re: Nelson's Version of PoX as Revelation in Seminary Manual

The church teaches us the role of prophets: From the soon to be renamed website LDS.org topics: Like the prophets of old, prophets today testify of Jesus Christ and teach His gospel. They make known God’s will and true character. They speak boldly and clearly, denouncing sin and warning of its conse...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

... For some reason, it just didn't sit right with me. It's like they were trying to choose their own nickname. ... It's like that episode of Big Bang Theory. Howard is doing his best to convince the other astronauts to give him the nickname "Rocket Man" but it ends up not working. In that light I ...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I say that instead of focusing on our name, we focus on our actions.

Most know nowadays "LDS" or "mormon" is an informal reference, not actual name of church.

God goes by many names, I'm sure he is cool with his church having a few.

Let's worry about the policies and actions that show who we are.

I explained it all to him and told him there was nothing wrong in any thing we had done He still disfellowshipped me but I still argue I did nothing wrong Do remember feeling any different status with God after the disfellowshipping process? Like...you didn't have as much access to the spirit...the...

Re: A Testimony (?) of Modesty

I didn't think this article was too bad in LDS Living: http://www.ldsliving.com/5-Ways-to-Help-Youth-See-Modesty-Differently/s/78052 Note: This article focuses on modest dress, but the same principles and ideas can and should be applied to modesty in thoughts and actions. 1. Teach youth to be sensit...

Re: Harm vs. Purity

It's a very good post. Love it. Why then, is sex a sin in all cases? A couple has sex once before marriage. They don't tell anyone. They try hard to be careful and not let it happen again. No other partners. No disease. No pregnancy. They get married in the temple. Wherein is the sin? Where does the...

I think that it is more of a pendulum swinging thing to keep the "spirit of the law" at the forefront and update Mormon "culture" to be noticeably more "relevant" in a variety of ways.
Agreed. :thumbup:

Re: Repentance, confessions, and letting go of the past

My problem with this is that there is a formula and procedure they use, right? I've wanted to see what this is like but I suspect they'd sniff out a non-Catholic quickly. I'd do it on vacation somewhere else. From what I understand, the Catholic priesthood will usually accept anyone's confession, C...
