Re: Bill Cosby on Marriage: A Church Application

I don't get the same thing out of that as you. To me it sounds like she's needs a break or she is going to go crazy and leave him altogether. She isn't trying to find something new in his story for the 97th time, she is removing herself so she doesn't get annoyed and resentful.

Re: Unprecedented broadcast Sunday June 23

I feel like it is rude and arrogant to assume you know so much as to tell people what the right way to live is. I would never suggest somebody change their lifestyle or religion just because I have. I disagree with the entire missionary program and feel we should have a "we are here if you decide yo...

Re: Men, Sex and Modesty

Two thoughts: One: It is usually women chastising women regarding modesty. It is rarely the men that have a problem. Men in general like women dressed in just about anything. I am not going to speculate as to why women attack each other, but that's just my observation. Two: Nature plays a role here....

Re: Big Home Teacher is watching.....

I understand and respect that, Brown - really. However, I have to point out that the Church gets ripped if it doesn't appear to care by letting people slip away without reaching out to them. If it also gets ripped for reaching out to people who appear to be slipping away . . . Fair point. I am sure...

Re: Big Home Teacher is watching.....

Honest question: Why would that bother you? . I don't like the idea of someone keeping (error-prone) stats on my attendance. I feel like that is between me and the big guy. It probably goes hand in hand of my complete distrust of the entire HT program. Assigned friends and tattle-tells don't really...

Big Home Teacher is watching.....

So today we received the annual shakedown in EQ about Home teaching. It went as normal until it was revealed that we have been asked by the Bishop and Stake Pres to report on our assigned families' attendance to Sacrament Meeting and follow up with them to find out why they aren't attending if neede...

Re: Utah has the highest rate of ?????

Utah also has the lowest average age. Younger people are typically less overweight because they haven't had time for the slight overeating to catch up. Could be as simple as that.

Re: Sister missionaries-Resentments?

I'm somewhat offended by the idea that lack of "success" on a mission is as a result of a lack of effort on the Missionary's part. How's that saying go? You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them come back to church after a quickie baptism.

Re: Bad things happen to good people / vice versa

I believe in the principle of prospering in the land by keeping the commandments - at the communal level ; I do NOT believe in it at the individual level. Life has taught me that - clearly and undeniably. I think there is some truth to that, but not because God will bless the society. If the majori...
