Re: Possible Model of LDS Church Phases of Commitment

it's not necessarily clear sometimes what stage one is in. I think that is true after Stage 3. I would also agree on it being more like waves and you move back and forth and on different issues. An example of that is I am rather :x today after reading Wheat and Tares topic of ""Malcolm Jeppsen's Ro...

Re: New Essay on Polygamy! (update, a 2nd one posted also)

I would think someone with the avatar of Sheldon would have started this post out with "Bazinga!" Going to need to set some time apart to study these.
