Re: Temple Question

I'd like to read these, and I know of some of them but am not sure how to get a hold of them? What do you recommend? Are the sources on the internet sufficient or reliable? http://www.sacred-texts.com/ ^ That's a source that I Like. It's free. Some of the books are better in published paper form th...

Deceased Relatives

As some of you know, my oldest sister passed away in July. According to the teachings of the Church, unless I am an active temple recommend holding member who has been through the temple for myself and have had the work done for my deceased relatives, I will never see them again. This just does not ...

Re: Joseph Smith: The Hero

What I have been pondering recently is where is "Jesus Christ" in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? So much praise is given to Joseph Smith. What about Jesus Christ? I do not mean to offend anyone, but I would think people who know very little about the LDS Church would think the memb...

Re: What I don't understand about the Holy Ghost

and, I personally would add, the continuing restoration that will continue past today. Very true, Ray. The Ninth Article of Faith states: We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingd...

Re: What I don't understand about the Holy Ghost

Something to remember ... the Eleventh Article of Faith states: We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may. I realize I am veering away from the original topic,...

Re: What I don't understand about the Holy Ghost

I will admit I cringed when I read the terms "false churches" and "false religions." There is a scripture that says that the elect of God will hear and follow his voice implying that people who don't join the church aren't the elect of God. However, if God is testifying of the truth to people in fal...

Re: Does God exist?

I am overwhelmed by your responses and your willingness to share your personal stories. Every word each of you has written leads me to believe that "God" does exist. When I post here at StayLDS, I do believe "God" speaks to me through the responses I receive. When I think of "God," I try to picture ...

Does God exist?

Lately I've been doubting the existence of God. I start thinking that if there is a God, he/she/it was created by people. I reflect back on the various mythological gods and goddesses, and wonder if Western civilization is any different? I look at all the religions of the world with their interpreta...

Re: Something Positive

Thank you all so very much for sharing your lists of positives about staying LDS. Tom Haws, I especially appreciated what you wrote. And LaLaLove, I will not be leaving this site. I have so much to learn from each of you. I was feeling confused and needed to read these words of bridget_night: So muc...
