Re: My Introduction

I understand IM. I had given money few times in tithing when I couldn't afford it. 2 times it led to me starving for almost 2 weeks straight. The other led to me being kicked out of my apartment because I gave to tithing before I paid rent and couldn't afford both. There was no magic check like the ...

Re: Movie Club: A Proposal

Having spent considerable time watching movies being made. And working with various actors(actresses) and making my and editing my own family movies. I am interested in this. Motion art can be a very effective way to tell stories or communicate ideas or truths.

Re: TR Question Offshoot - What about unrighteous dominion

It's hard for me to say. I can just speak for me. That I really don't in love pride in my decision. On the other hand I have to live with the "dictates to my own conscious". I have to live with my own conscious. You can never run away from oneself. So if I am ask to violate that, that is something I...

Re: My Introduction

Hi IM. Welcome. I am new here as well and tring to find "balance" or being "centered". I love science but history In itself isn't a exact science. I'm not fond of black and white thinking. Being raised all my life as TBM you here a lot of black and white thinking. It works inside inside Mormonism if...

Re: Reframing Testimony

I want to say. Despite my weakness in grammar. That I personally feel placing a testimony on any man or event eventually leads to failure. Which to me leads to moroni 7-46 "for charity never failith. wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail--" That after...

Faith, Hope, Charity and expectations!??

Hi all. I'm new here but don't know really what to put. After all I have been through. I want to say I still believe but my thoughts will never be the same. Growing up in a very TBM family, ward and stake by Los Angeles. Believing in everything in level and intensity word for word from the pulpit. T...

Re: Dating after a faith crisis

On a hopefully more helpful note, I want to say that it really depends on the region and person. People really are complex. With women and men using different parts of their brain to make decisions or thinking about things making even more complex(especially when you get to compartmentalize and usin...

Re: Dating after a faith crisis

My personal experience here is that it isn't unique. But in most religions I have encountered with practicing people. It wouldn't be social suicide. Most people outside of mormonism and orthodox Jews aren't extremist in forcing each other to believe and tow the line. Many Mormons aren't extremist ei...

Re: How the Mormons Make Money

. Faith has to play a role here because the church does not publish the information except in the UK, where it is required by law.
I believe in volunteer and charity work with all my being.
I'm grateful for those experiences inside and outside the church.
