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: 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...

Re: It hurts to be Mormon Now

When I proclaim that I am a Christian, eyes view me objectively to see if I act Christian. When I proclaim that I am Mormon, more scrutiny. If I professed to be perfect, all bets are off. I think a lot of people in and out of the church look at us like we profess to be perfect. So when there's an em...

Re: Newbie with another question

I have a vague memory of someone telling me once that it is possible Adam and Eve were not the only people created but rather just the first,or something like that, but perhaps i am remembering this wrong. Thoughts??? yeah, I agree, speculation and opinion abound. I have thought recently that Adam ...

The one thing that came to me as I read your post and subsequent responses from others was that I'm am a slightly different person at home than I am at work, different from when I'm out running, different from at church, different a...
