Moved to the left

Since my FC I find myself moving to the left not by choice but it just seems more normal to do so. I am talking politicaly as in Bernie Sanders left. I know this is a minority in the church but I have busted my butt all my life to scratch out a living a still struggle at times. I agree that health c...

Bruce R McConkie

I joined the church originally in 1981 but have heard McConkie's name always brought up what's the deal with him why does everyone listen when they mention him other than he produced the book Mormon Doctrine . He seems a very hard core binary thinking guy I.e. church is either true or false . Can so...

I attend the Lds church but my beliefs are all my own. I only agree with about 40% of what is taught in the lds church and I keep it to myself with smug...
