I think that in some ways the teaching of spirit paradise/prison is an archetype to help convey the same message. As premortal spirits we have no concept of the blessings a body can bring. We come here and receive a body. Still, there's little appreciation because we haven't leaned anything about ou...

Keeping them secret puts a pressure on you, it puts up a hidden barrier between you and your wife. The lack of complete honesty has the potential to spill over into other decisions. It might not bleed into other decisions in your life but you run the risk of having your significant other think it h...
Okay, so I didn't make up the story about drinking milk because soda had the appearance of alcohol. http://www.lds.org/general-conference/1988/04/in-the-world I tried holding a glass of 7-Up, but it had the appearance of an alcoholic beverage. Finally I went over to the bartender and asked him if he...

If anything the BoM's message to the world is that god still speaks to man... which is a tad ironic given the juxtaposition with the hymn. I guess the message is not adding to but rather stating the same message again in a new dispensation.
I was going to make a small edit to my post. I was going to add... I don't know the statistics but I have to imagine that most people use e cigs to stop smoking but I imagine that there are some people that start out on e cigs. I agree with you Joni. Am I completely imagining the milk story? I've he...
Interesting. E cigarettes came up in one of our coordination meetings a few weeks ago. Thanks for creating the thread. It was just me and the missionaries in our meeting and our thoughts were - sure, why not? But we don't have any authority to make policy so we didn't spend a whole lot of time think...

I had an interesting conversation at church last Sunday. The subject of tithing was touched on and the person I was talking to brought up that aspect of tithing, namely that tithing should be paid first. I was going to say something but I ended up just listening to their perspective. In a nutshell: ...
Thanks for sharing this. In that story I see hope and happiness being restored after a period of sorrow and loss. At the end of the day that is what church is all about. It's funny in a way... I mean at one point church (indirectly) instilled sorrow and loss in my life. Rediscovering that hope and h...
"I don't feel comfortable holding a TR unless I feel like I'm contributing toward building the kingdom via some sort of calling?" :twisted: Kidding aside, a TR interview would be the perfect place to remind your bishop. It was mentioned in the other thread, sometimes the wheels move slowly. Like the...

I went back to re-read the thread to make sure I could live with what I had posted in it and ran across this again: Our WML says (and I actually agree), if someone is antagonistic or doesn't even remember being baptized, remove their names from the church records. Bring them a letter to sign that sa...
