I'm so bad... The only reasons that I attend Church is to receive the Sacrament, and to worship God with other believers in him full stop. So much of the dogma they try to dish out is straight up nonsense. I love the members and their devotion. For me the Leadership have missed the boat. I don't kno...
There is much that I can not share about myself save to say that I am completely devoted to God. I am Celibate and at my age, I do not anticipate that changing. Retiring in 2003, I have lots of time to study God, and those things that he has caused to be written. There is no issue with the Mormon Do...
I'm not married, and am unattached, and retired, so I spend just lots of time studying the beliefs of others. Not starting out in the LDS church, there was lots of time to read the old documents of civilizations. It seems that almost every day, I get a surprise. Last night, I found that the works th...

I left in disgust a few years ago because I believe that the only Judge is God, and no other. The GA place themselves in a position they oughtn't.

I'm told that I can never have a TR, and I think the GA has the facts misconstrued. They don't listen to me. As I have thought about it the realization comes to me that a TR for me is inappropriate. They don't understand that either. The important part is that I love God, and Jesus and am forgiven. ...

I'm a returning member, and the Coronavirus situation has things in a mess. I'm praying for mercy from God for us all. Years ago, when I was still a member, I spoke on the Atonement. My take on it then was that to God, contriteness and repentance was necessary and the offense was over, by the will a...

It has been rough staying Mormon but I am still here. Had some things to work out. So, I have happened upon information that indicates that the BoM history happened in the vicinity of the Great Lakes.
