Re: Maybe I'm too different?

Greetings canuck! You touched on a subject that is very dear to me. In large part because I went through the very TBM to multi -cultural LDS journey. It is a process that can not be forced. There is actually a Canadian film which strikes very similar to my own journey of understanding. http://www.yo...

Re: Ye Shall Know Them By Their Fruits

On a personal experience basis I will always remember 2 things said to me. When my mother told me I was the most non jusdgemental person she ever knew. And when my best friend who is an Orthdox Jew said to me one day, do you know why we are friends? I couldn't think of anything in particular besides...

Re: Ye Shall Know Them By Their Fruits

I've actually asked myself this a lot because after learning the history through acident by our own PR department 4 months ago. The article about a BYU professor I think it was that was either still teaching or made a comment about the black doctrine and priesthood teachings of old. The PR response ...

Re: Wondering what now?

Welcome! There in there lies the irony. If a person recieves the revolution or answer that it is true then what? It's true inspiringly? It's historically true? It's true but has some inaccuracy from being written down by humans who being human and not writing it down as it happens(and the brain bein...

Re: Trapped in Disneyland...or Utah County

Welcome Benlin. In my heart of hearts I believe in Zion. Or at least the idea of struggling to achieve a place such as it. The idea that we may progress for it everyday. Not by waiting for it to appear out of nowhere one day. But by each doing our part to progress towards it. By telling ourselves, i...

Re: Acknowledgement of 1831 Revelation of Polygamy?

Historicly in the old testament it was never a commandment. Just a cultural thing that god allowed until king David and Solomon let it get out of hand. We have no way of knowing for sure if it was or not a new commandment but it certainly wasn't a commandment of old. I respect 2 consenting adults if...

Re: On the Newness of Revelation

Well, I feel it would kind of clash with the " my name is _____ and I'm a Mormon PR campaign. One one hand showing how everyday "normal" we are and them turn around and make revelations that don't quite "jive" to new members and investigators. It could or even would confuse them to see this and then...

Re: Need Help Teaching Chapter 15: Advancing the Work

I love bc_pg's answer. Focus on what the Lord's work actually was during his ministry. Talk about how he associated with and served those who were the outcasts of his society. Ask who the outcasts of our own society are. Ask if there are specific ways the group and the ward can reach out to and hel...

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

Thank you for the welcome. As this is my first time even posting on the Internet I find it quite interesting and ironic, especially since I have been using the Internet since 1992 lol. I want to say despite my weakness in typing I hope what ever I say may not come across as as anger or too negative....
