Re: October 2016 General Conference

After the talk about Joseph Smith (the third or fourth speaker), I had heard enough and went mountain biking to seek peace. I listened to Israel Kamakawiwo`ole during my drive.

Re: Nelly and Abby Discuss Polygamy

Ray, I was studying the 19th century teachings regarding marriage and discovered Nelly and Abby. It summarizes many things that were taught and I found it very interesting so I decided to share it. It could be used when discussing current marriage issues. I imagine a conversion like this: Bob : I ca...

Re: What's My Line?

What about from D&C 121:34-40? ...the rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness. That they may be conferred upon us, it is true; but when we...exercise control...

Re: Nelly and Abby Discuss Polygamy

One use for this is to make it part of a response to those who say the church will never allow gay marriage. Along with the quote that says "the one-wife system not only degenerates the human family..." the following could be shared: Monogamy , or restrictions by law to one wife, is no part of the e...

Re: I Came Out To My Wife

Ray, I do understand the mission of this site and I’m sorry you had to write that. Thank you. I need to chill out and think about how I can support reasonable church participation for the good of the family, like good ol’ Roy said. You are right, Holy Cow. My wife and I are not on the same page righ...

Re: I Came Out To My Wife

Yeah, I emailed my wife a 25 page document. I don't blame you for shaking your head, hawkgrrrl. I had tried several times to explain my doubts to her and she just thought I was taking things out of context and being duped by anti-Mormons. That's why I wrote up the document with a bunch of quotes fro...

Nelly and Abby Discuss Polygamy

The Millennial Star had a series called "Nelly and Abby" with fictional women having conversations to teach doctrines. Has anyone read any of them before? Here is part of one of those talks with my favorite parts highlighted. I think John Taylor wrote it, but I'm not sure. The original is HERE . Nel...

Re: I Came Out To My Wife

Let me add some context. A few days before the argument we had on Sunday, I had earbuds in so my wife asked me what I was listening to. It was a Mormonstories podcast called “What to do when your husband loses his LDS testimony.” I wanted to see how I could help my wife. On Sunday I was sitting at t...

Re: I Came Out To My Wife

Roy, thanks for that post. My wife is very scared and I feel bad about it. She worries about our social structure and other things. The biggest concern for her is our eternal family. We just had an argument. She found out I listen to Mormonstories podcasts and said she believes John Dehlin engages i...
