Re: What would you like to hear addressed in General Confere

Remember - I'm bringing out my libertarian here: Because all institutions that ask for member donations and tax exempt status, should be accountable to the the people who fund them. This is partially true, as it all depends on the articles of incorporation or the Bylaws of the organization. Dependin...

Re: What would you like to hear addressed in General Confere

Financial transparency would be a great start. I hear this all the time and I don't understand why people want a church, which is a private entity, to give financial transparency. I completely agree when it is a publicly held company to its stockholders or a government agency to its citizens, but n...

Re: What do you do to find value in the LDS Church?

A lot members find my ward meetings to be the perfect place to preach the gospels of Beck and Hannity I honestly haven't heard to much of this at church, per se. I have heard it now and then at church activities, though never during sunday sessions. I am a card carrying right wing lunatic, so that ...

Re: What would you like to hear addressed in General Confere

General Conference???? I skip it. That's 10 hours of sitting and well, I get bored and fall asleep. Seriously, though, It would be nice to have it less stuffy and boring. Yes - to those who are going to say "You get out of it what you put into it", well then, I guess this session I will get nothing.

Re: Mormon's Eat Their Own

I found the book that was talked about on the radio show: http://www.amazon.com/Why-Eat-Our-Own-ebook/dp/B00DTFNSE8 They had a brief discussion about it, on my drive home (that is because they wait until I'm in my truck to discuss important matters). I'm going to purchase the book to read it (says $...

Re: Being called to live in tents?

but that he sees "secondary evidence" that suggests that the church is planning for this by their building of larger girls' camps in Utah. Now that is a leap, sort of. I used to live near one of the girls' camps. They are so busy there is no way they were built for "other agendas". The church makes...

Re: Being called to live in tents?

I have heard of something similar, many times.
I write it off as they can do or live however they want.
I certainly have not received that type of revelation.
I don't think I would like to live in a tent.

Re: My Testimony

I'm starting this post and looking at the time ... why am I up so late.... As regards to the church handbook, it changes all the time. It is now published, for the majority parts anyway, online at the lds.org website. I have been unable to find anywhere it says you are not to attend other services. ...
