Re: I desperately need advice!

Hi Love! I'm not going to address your main question, because it's already been answered great. But I have some thought on how to stay inactive without the annoying reactivation efforts. I'm "on a break" right now, and I've found a pretty decent balance that has mostly kept me from being on the rece...

Re: How do I explain modesty?

1. Modesty is mental attitude defined by becoming satisfied and grateful for what you have while maintaining an appearance that shows you thought about the messages you wanted to send the world. I love this. The balance between your internal confidence and your presentation in the face of others is...

Re: Sealing waiting period policy discontinued

I'm so happy about this change. It's been my dream to have a civil wedding, (even before my faith crisis) but I didn't feel like I could until now. Now couples can choose how many people they want to invite or none at all to their sealing. Instead, they can invite most of their friends and family t...

Re: Joke of the Day

One from my grandpa. In his ward, a few years prior to him telling me this story, they had an excellent music conductor. Her name was Hope and her family had been in the ward for many years. She knew everyone and loved everyone. She was constantly happy and friendly. When she and her husband moved b...

Re: Prophetic Flaws in Scripture

I've come to believe something that could be described as the "flawed, but useful" hypothesis for prophets. Instead of thinking that God strengthens prophets to overcome their weaknesses, I prefer to think that God uses prophets for what they're good at in spite of their weaknesses. For example, Da...

Re: Prophetic Flaws in Scripture

I believe that we tend to follow certain schemas or formulas in our systematic religious beliefs. .... (as an aside, I do not believe that we have a record of Jesus claiming to be perfect - that came from people that followed after. Also, when Jesus returned to Nazareth the townspeople rejected him...

Re: Prophetic Flaws in Scripture

The thread title made me think the tread was going to be about how the authors of the scriptures were flawed so it stands to reason that the scriptures themselves are flawed. You took it in a different direction. It was a nice surprise. ... If you want a window into Jesus' childhood try reading the...

Prophetic Flaws in Scripture

I have seen a few threads talking about imperfections in leaders. I would like to start a place to discuss flaws and weaknesses that scriptures record (usually hint at) regarding the chosen leaders through history. Personally, I find it easier to relate to these people when they exhibit flaws. When ...

Re: What does the Book of Mormon actually teach?

Bringing it back to topic. On my most recent reading of the BoM, this question was very much what came to the surface. I started my reading to gain a testimony and instead really came to distill the essence of what Christ and God care about. That's one of the things I think is really great about the...
