Re: Face to Face Youth Meeting

"...in this quest to seek and find God in all things there is still an area of uncertainty. There must be. If a person says that he met God with total certainty and is not touched by a margin of uncertainty, then this is not good. For me, this is an important key. If one has the answers to all the q...

Re: Face to Face Youth Meeting

Elder Bednar said we could have questions but never doubts which he defined as being cynical, disbelieving and mistrusting. Doubts mean there is something wrong with us. Sister Bednar then talked about how there are just no answers to some things so we should stop looking and instead start asking t...

Re: Should I come clean about my disbelief?

Thanks for all the very good thoughts. I had an email typed up, just to get my thoughts out in case I decided to send it to my friend. But after processing it, I think I will go forward without any open declaration of disbelief, for as was worded above, I am still a believing member: I believe in tr...

Should I come clean about my disbelief?

I have a friend From the ward I talk to about gospel stuff. He has a nuanced view of things and is open minded about stuff. We've never had a discussion about our personal beliefs or struggles though. I heard him say in church recently that he knew the church was true. I feel like it's time to let h...

Re: Dalai Lama: "if science is found to contradict a basic t

It was one of those rare times when I couldn't shield my kids from stuff that I know is not going to fly. I had to try to defend the indefensible, but c'mon. Nelson didn't exactly give me much to work with. It was not good. Ah yes, the infamous Elder Nelson wardrobe malfunction of '07. One of the m...

Dalai Lama: "if science is found to contradict a basic tenet

Of all the Christian Faiths out there, mormonism should have the most room to say something like this. Yet, somehow I don't see this happening ;) I think most of us here adjust our faith in the light of scientific reason, but is this a good path for religions to walk? What would religion lose, if an...

Re: Staylds alternatives?

If you're looking for less critical I think fairlds has a decent board. It's not my personal cup of tea, but the conversation can be pretty open and there's some good advice given. Probably more on the faithful scale than here, but not anti-doubt either.

Re: Saying Good-bye to Richard G. Scott

I met Scott in person twice, and was shocked to find just how different he was when speaking at a local meeting. None of the dry, uber serious talks like he is known for at GC. The talks he gave were touching, witty, and funny. No talk of chastity, just stories of inspirational people putting others...

Re: One Stake's Resource List for Struggling Members

That's a good step forward. Of course there are things I could be critical about regarding the contents of the list, but really, props are in order for legitimizing the issues.
