Re: Why I chose this forum.

I chose this site because it was the first lds forum I could find after a 4 hour search online. The lds forum I need doesnt exist. I would have to create it myself and deal with all the phoney baloney fakers out there that just want to poke fun or discredit the church of jesus christ of latter day ...

Re: The Church to match box office sales ...

If forgiven by God (and I'm not sure God forgives organizations, I do believe God forgives individuals), there is no need for an apology. I've heard this repeatedly, but I'm not sure I like the sentiment. It's too often used as a doctrinal way to place the blame on the victim. "God has forgiven me,...

Re: The Church to match box office sales ...

It might be "repentance", but it's a different brand of repentance than they teach over the pulpit. It's like when a man becomes afraid his wife is going to find out about an affair from a few years prior. He brings her flowers, does the dishes, and steps up his "husband" game, so she won't believe...

Re: Two Hour Church

I just gave this a good amount of thought and checked my calendar - I have not been to a ward activity this year. I just checked my calendar. We haven't had a ward activity this year. :P We save it all for Halloween and Christmas. :shock: Each ward should try to have at least one quarterly IMHO, an...

Re: I May Throw Up...

A social media fast is a GOOD THING but not when regimented. And that's a good point, Sam. When the AA came and trained our stake on ministering one of his main points for us was don't programize it. Likewise, Elder Cook gave a very similar warning when talking about the two hour block. ("We trust ...

Re: The Church to match box office sales ...

Repentance is repentance, and in this case I believe the Church truly is trying to change. I am not going to knock anybody for trying to change positively from their past. I'm with you on this one Curt. Repentance (change) is a process, not an event. I do think the church is truly making an effort ...

Re: Two Hour Church

I socialized a lot at church. That's what second hour was for. Half our ward is in the chapel, foyers, or hallways (SS is in the RS room). Our ward has a monthly "linger longer." I'm usually not up for staying for that because, as I always said (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) "I'm done lingering, three h...

Re: I May Throw Up...

When I asked my wife how women's session was the only thing she mentioned was the social media fast. I think she likes the idea, but honestly I don't think she can do it. A lot of her communication, including with children and other family, is through Facebook Messaging. I told my wife that I didn't...
