Re: New First Presidency of the church

There are 7 apostles between President Monson and President Nelson. It feels like a new generation of leadership to me. Elder Nelson and Oaks were called as apostles when I was 11 years old. I remember my dad talking about what he liked about the new apostles. Thomas S. Monson Boyd K. Packer Marvin ...

Re: "Ponderize" revisited

I think "tempest in a teapot" summarizes it. As for me, I have used scriptures as a background to my phone screen since that time. I have found ponderizing an effective help to my study. Sometimes I may do nothing other than ponderize the scriptures I have put around me. That is better than I have d...

Re: Hamula revisited

The fact that there has not been any further news about this is good. Elder Hamula was a General Authority and it was dealt with well, I think. It is part of the responsibility when you accept a calling that is so public and in a position of authority. Give the man space to work out what he will.

Re: Objectionable Quote -- does this bother you?

We know that God has a relationship of perfect unity with his Son Jesus Christ, Jesus describes it in John 17. Jesus said that he wants all of us to have such a relationship. If we are to follow Jesus, we are to have a similar relationship with all who will.

Re: Objectionable Quote -- does this bother you?

God's want us to experience all that He does. That means being in family relationships with people willing to live according to the standards the Lord sets. Anything less than this can be said is a curse. Those who live in the Terrestrial kingdom are not willing to live a Celestial sort of life. Tha...
