Re: Since I Love Inspiring Music

I love threads like this. Thanks Ray Degraw. I appreciate everyone's links and sharing on this. I am apprehensive to post my music since it differs so greatly from most Mormons because it is foreign language mostly. But here it goes, some songs that have been very inspirational to me. I am apologize...

Re: Batman Movie Shootings and Tragedy

My fiancé in Argentina actually messaged me about this today. I've wrestled with to. Reading history along with crime statistics shows a lot fewer homicides as humans have advanced. Violent crime is down but that doesn't help kids understand. I work with Orthdox Jews. About 4 are holocaust survivors...

Re: church

Across California and Utah and 2 dozen other states I have attended the average at SM was 50-100 in a bout a a couple hundred wards I attended and visited.

Re: How have you addressed certain issues?

I am, was TBM in whatever that means. I don't know anymore and honestly I really don't like putting people into boxes so I figured why put myself into a box. I know what I know, believe what I believe and seek the truth in all things. So much so that even after I find truth I am still open to more t...

Re: Ye Shall Know Them By Their Fruits

silent= spent and the iPhone autocorrect lol. Anyways I have spent my life in serving others both inside and outside the church and wait for the day the church encourages less meetings and more action. Adding more meetings and responsibilites isn't going to work. We have to be fluid in our life and ...

Re: A recent experience with home teaching

I've been through that personally and seen it done to others hundreds of times. I'm not a fan of labels or putting people in a box so we can feel comfortable with ourselves. People will always exist that feel the need to put up defense barriers to shun those not within there walls of belief to feel ...

Re: A recent experience with home teaching

I'm going to quote the best institute teacher I ever had here. The church isn't a place for the well or perfect. It's a hospital for the sick." summarizing that the gospel or church is a place learn and grow and perfect, not for the already perfected(which doesn't exist here). He was pointing out th...

Re: Faith, Hope, Charity and expectations!??

Hi Benlin. Well, to be fair there are members who don't listen at all or care about GA. However making countless obedience speeches won't change that and probably cause further distance from them. The TBM on the other hand further thier perfection view to an unhealthy unobtainable level. A title doe...
