Re: Core Motivators and Disaffection: Truth vs. Values

Great responses, everyone, thanks. Here is another question: Hawgrrl, you indicated that NTs tend to "lean agnostic/atheist". What keeps the NT from going that route, if not truth and accuracy?

Re: Core Motivators and Disaffection: Truth vs. Values

Those are some great concepts for discussion, Hawkgrrl. DH brought some of those up last night, and I think that the suggestion that we discuss them in more detail is a great one. They are revolutionary to our church. Any recommendations for other books or sources on such topics? Additionally, is it...

Re: Core Motivators and Disaffection: Truth vs. Values

First, I don't think it is yours, nor anybody's, duty to "help" another's spiritual journey...except to support him/her in it -- as long as it is not terribly harmful to him or others.

Core Motivators and Disaffection: Truth vs. Values

This post is sort of a tangent to the thread on Meyers/Briggs personalities. I am an E NF P (occasional ENTP) and my husband is an I NT J (occasional ISTJ). We have been discussing lately the concept of "core motivators" - as Hawkgrrl pointed out in the related post, the main motivator for NFs is va...

Re: The Pre-Existence.

Whether or not its still considered doctrinal, even in my own lifetime there have been some very strong teachings from the prophets against the use of birth control, and encouraging families to not delay schooling, etc., before having kids. In addition, there have also been talks by BY saying, basic...

Re: Conservative politics . . how did we get here?

Being a liberal has nothing to do with my disaffection, I was liberal before I joined the church.

Re: D&C 132:Original intent

You're probably correct. However, keeping things "hidden" isn't working out very well IMHO. Just an honest recognition from the Church that they are, well, the Church....not some governing body over the priesthood...not the Kingdom of God (that was set up by the council of 50...not the Church) etc....
