Re: Giving a talk on Scout Sunday - help?

Wow, excellent examples! Sorry I came in on this one late. Sounds like you've got enough to run on, the entire scout law, motto, slogan, oath, and even outdoor code can and should be framed into a Christ centered mindset. Scout Sunday. My only gripe is that scouts should be able to wear their unifor...

Re: John Dehlin Facing Excommunication

Newbee here again. Lurker extraordinare. JDs podcast really helped me through some difficult times, and added some difficulty as well. Looking back, and re-listening to MS podcasts, I noticed his evolution from one who was doubting/searching and non-biased. Some of the later episodes it was apparent...

Re: utterly ridiculous

I believe that women will be punished for their own fashion faux pas and not for Eve's totally last year's fig leaves. :lolno: That was a great one! I don't have any great suggestions other than you are the minority voice of reason, and speak your mind anyway. Of course do it in a tactful way, if y...

Re: TR Question Survey - Question 13: Unresolved Sins

Ok, but what if someone says yes to "Have there been any sins or misdeeds in your life that should have been resolved with priesthood authorities but have not been?" Apparently that doesn't happen very often but if it did happen isn't there the expectation that the person would then go on to confes...

Re: Prepared to Officiate

I don't remember where I heard it, and I hate to quote something I can't backup or source, I had heard that the priesthood was something that we received in the pre earth life, and when we are here, just wait for it to be 'activated' for lack of a better word by ordination. Also that if you were to ...

Re: Men, Sex & Modesty

Just a quick reminder that we're still here and we agree. http://www.ldssdf.org/v2/ What? Now another site I might need to join? Jk, I have very liberal views on nudity, i would be ok with going to a nudist colony, but theres no need especially if my DW didnt go with me. As our children grew up we ...

Re: Church Press Conference on Religious Freedom / Non discr

...and I think the top leadership is trying to get a message through that we don't hate gays as a church and that individual church members should love them in the same way we are supposed to love everyone else. I agree and see that it's a bit of the 'old guy' mentality of how we grew up with certa...

Re: A Different Perspective of the Temple

Eternity- I have gone through some of the same emotions. The hardest thing to do is to force the feeling/emotion/spirit that you think you want to feel on a particular instance. The more we chase after it, the farther it seems to fly away from us. We all need a shake up every now and then to break u...
