Re: Women and Girls can now be witnesses to ordinances

The next logical step would be to allow women to pass the sacrament. There's no scripture saying it's a PH only thing. It's pure tradition.

Re: Oaks' recent comments on LGBT+

I hate to say it, but this is more of Oaks being Oaks. He has a real stick in his craw when it comes to this subject and too often uses the platform people have given him to stump his pet issue. It's a tough issue to get around given the church's theology. So much of the Mormon purpose of life cente...

Re: Judgment day

I wonder whether god even needs to judge us. First and foremost, I feel we're often our own worst critics. Maybe we judge ourselves more harshly than god ever will. Second, us humans already do a bang-up job of judging one another. With all that judgment going around, god may not feel the need to pi...

Re: Dull video on Primary

It's hard to target a specific audience for something like this. It may be relevant for members that don't have children because they could end up with a calling in Primary or YM/YW someday. That said, there wasn't much information in the 50 minute video. It could have been handled in an email that ...

Re: Women and Girls can now be witnesses to ordinances

I agree Hawkgrrrl. And yet, as my post above illustrates, where else would we draw the line? 18? Is that the universal demarcation of adulthood in all parts of the world? Maybe draw the line at endowed as a start? I know that line is drawn for proxy sealings, but with the way this new policy was ro...

Re: Women and Girls can now be witnesses to ordinances

One thing I'd like to see change: 10/1/2019 Person 1: "I think women should be allowed to be witnesses of ordinances." Person 2: "God is the arbiter of truth, not people disaffected from the church." 10/2/2019 Person 2: "Isn't it so beautiful that we received the revelation that women are allowed to...

Re: Book of Mormon Translation

One could speculate that the "sealed portion" of the BoM hints at some sort of physical prop. Here's a typical replica of the golden plates. I've highlighted a portion of the replica I wanted to focus on. https://i.imgur.com/BYna3d3.jpg There's banding that groups leafs together, presumably the thin...

Re: Daughter in Relief Society Update

The last few years of Primary are hard for many children, maybe even hard for a majority of children. I know quite a few kids that were begging to get out by the time they turn 12 and I know many Primary leaders that understand that many kids have outgrown Primary before they're allowed to graduate....

Re: Overcoming feelings of isolation

I understand those feelings. Sometimes I think it would be easier to stay at home because that way I know the loneliness I felt was the result of a specific choice that I made. It's a little harder on the psyche to attend church and feel alone while sitting in the middle of a crowd. The thing is, I ...
