Re: April 2020 General Conference

Am I the only one who finds it fascinating that at this point in time, during this virus pandemic, we have a medical doctor as the prophet? I was just thinking about that tonight as I sit here binging on Netflix. I find it fascinating that the physician prophet's only offering in response to the vi...

Re: Any wishes given this social distancing, crisis of the COVID?

I wonder what will happen to church membership and church attendance after this is over? I am sure people are loving having their Sundays to themselves! From what I've gathered from my faithful friends, they either don't see this as unique because they are too faithful to care "how" or "where" the ...

Re: COVID a sign of the last days?

Just curious is anyone thinks the admittedly widespread, extremely global virus is a sign of the times? Revelations talks about God pouring out several vials onto the earth in preparation for the coming of the Savior. These are signs of the last days. Is this one of those vials, inflicting disease ...

Re: Restarting World Economy

Americans are in shock and have not fully grasped our situation. Restarting our utterly complex and tightly wound economy may seem insurmountable when the time comes. I wish I had more confidence in our civil and religious leaders. Many of the 'olds', including me may not see it. For years it has b...

Re: Polygamy and Disassembling

I'm not baiting you, promise. I was told by a lifelong Member, who was told by a Member who serves at the Temple weekly, that to get into the Celestial Kingdom, one must have participated in Polygamy. Section 132 does seem to allude to that idea. I don't believe section 132 to be revelation and I d...

Re: Virtual Sacrament Meeting

Now I have the mental image of a bishop leaping over the pulpit and crawling over people in the pews to smack the sacrament out of someone's hand seconds before they unworthily put it in their mouth. Has anyone ever seen a Bishop prevent someone from taking the Sacrament during church? I've always ...

Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

In the last hour 2 or 3 people have asked on Facebook "Are we having regular church?" - Hmm. My poor humor would chime in, I thought ya'll were members of the true restored church with God's priesthood power on the earth? You guys believe in the Bible AND the BOM, both with countless stories of men...

Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

I hope that the church might use this opportunity to evaluate how many of our meeting are really critical and how many could be reasonably done by other means. I am especially thinking of leadership training meetings involving travel or an increase in the access to online seminary. :o :o :o Think o...

Re: Neslon's questions leading up to April 2020 conference

I don't know where in the BOM it talks about sealings? Even if it did, why does it matter what the BOM says? Can't God enable these blessings without the need for a book? Why would he shut us off from the C Kingdom like that? I've read this before and have even shared this view before that I wouldn...

Re: Neslon's questions leading up to April 2020 conference

At the close of the last session of general conference Russell Nelson asked people to answer a few questions to help them prepare for the upcoming, unique conference that will take place in a few weeks. I've heard the word "historic" being tossed around quite a lot when people refer to the upcoming...
