Re: Winning back those who quit the church

The fact that they can so consistently obey that greatest commandment is by itself mostly sufficient for me: They do so much better than any other Church. The clincher is that most of the LDS doctrine directly pertaining to righteousness (metamorphosis from the human nature into the divine nature) ...

Re: Winning back those who quit the church

I'm glad you've come back to clarify and expand your thoughts and to give us more of a background on where you're coming from. I totally agree with you with the idea of "love one another." It is half of the two great commandments which encompass all others, and it is, IMO, the essence of the gospel....

Re: Not church related-need advice

No offense taken SD, but for what it's worth our landlord when we told them to keep the deposit was not the best. The heating system never got the apartment get above 65, sewage backed up into out bathtub 3-4 times a year (which we cleaned up), and after a blizzard we weren't plowed out for three da...

It's "those who..." not "those whom..."

Sorry.
It bugged the heck out of me, too, but I was able to resist. :D

This is why I think many are going to be surprised at the outcome for the likes of Hitler and Stalin.

Re: Not church related-need advice

I was in a somewhat similar situation once (with the whole notice thing). We just didn't pay the last month's rent and let them keep the deposit (which was a month's rent). They never bothered us, but that's not to say your owners won't.

Re: Primary Music

I can see the indoctrination perspective and agree that it exists. Most people who are sending their kids to Primary really don't mind that, though - it's kind of why they send them. There is an element of the church that's all about indoctrination, whether it be children or adults. Because those of...

Re: Winning back those who quit the church

I agree with the "by their fruits" measure as a whole, and it's one of the reasons I joined the church to begin with (after reading"A Marvelous Work and a Wonder"). However, I can't say that other churches don't have good fruit or even that there is not good fruit to be found outside religion. My re...

Re: Thoughts about the Progressive Prophetess?

I hadn't heard of her until now and only briefly looked at a couple of her blog posts. There is room in the church for her, like there is room for everyone else, but she's probably not someone I would necessarily hang out with. I do plan to read more of what she has written. I was a little concerned...
