Re: Area devotional?

I was curious what the danger was that Elder Ballard was warning about. He seams to be talking about this nation at a "crossroads". Could be interpreted several different ways, I suppose. Crossroads just means we have choices ahead. When would that not be the case? It's likely anxiety and fear over...

Re: Area devotional?

I think that Joseph would be too preoccupied with trying to set himself up as king of the world to take much notice in what the little leaders at general conference were saying about him. :angel:

Re: LDS church supports LGBQT conversion therapy?

I am wondering if maybe the church should get out of the counseling business like they previously got out of the adoption business. To me it appears that to be a counselor at LDS Family Services can constitute a conflict of interest. You are supposed to advocate for the best interest of the client ...

Re: Area devotional?

I heard reports that people were asked to pray for "the country" during the devotional. It's a safe way to phrase things for both sides. People that love what's happening in the country will take that as a signal to pray that god will continue to guide elected leaders. People that don't love what's ...

Re: Area devotional?

On my mission Elder Holland came to visit and one Elder asked him if he'd seen God. I've never heard such a stern rebuke in my life and it left the poor kid really shaken after. He told the Elder that it was a totally inappropriate question and he'd lost the spirit. "So... I guess that's a no. Than...

Re: Area devotional?

How did it go? Did it turn out to be something more than an opportunity to say "covenant path" a dozen times? :angel:

Re: TR Questions Change-up

I included a portion of this quote in another thread. It comes from Oaks' talk 'Two Great Commandments' that was given during the October '19 general conference: (emphasis added) But there are many we love, including some who have the restored gospel, who do not believe in or choose not to follow Go...

Re: The Nature Of Families in Heaven

This comment could go here or the 'LDS church supports LGBQT conversion therapy?' thread. I find it disheartening that during the same general conference the exact same speaker gave two talks that contradict one another: In one talk a woman's concerns about being the second wife in heaven are laughe...

Re: Talk help - prayer is the topic

I hadn't looked at Jesus's statement from another point of view, Nibbler, although I believe most members don't give it any thought at all. Perhaps he was even in a state of delirium at the moment (it was very close to his death) and was singing a hymn? I'll probably stick with my general view on i...

Re: LDS church supports LGBQT conversion therapy?

I wonder if one worry church lawyers have is whether bishops could run afoul of this law by counseling a youth and the subject of sexual orientation comes up. This rule change only affects "certain health care professionals". However, it does make me wonder what would happen if a particular bishop ...
