Re: Marriages - homosexual and otherwise

IMO. But since the government wants to control the marriage debate , and really don't acknowledge religious marriages as being legit... I believe they need to not discriminate on who can and cannot get married. This is why I'm adamently opposed to the church position and cannot support the church g...

Re: Meeting With SP Tonight

I'd be pretty frank with him, explaining your thoughts and feelings about regrets you have had and things you think you need to do. I'm also in my 50s, and totally understand where you are coming from - he should, too. In actuality, this should be little more than a worthiness interview which you st...

Re: Marriages - homosexual and otherwise

The whole problem with the issue is that it is both a religious issue and a political/legal issue. My personal belief is that government should not be involved in marriage but because of our legal tradiiton changing that is highly unlikely. I also peronally believe that the whole issus is driven by ...

Re: Redefining "God"

Wow, Raygun, you and I are birds of a feather. Like you, I cannot look around me and believe there is no God, and I believe God is at least the Creator. I have questioned the existence of God and was nearly atheist and very agnostic for a time. I have also had experiences like yours where I have not...

Re: Good Children's Books

I wouldn't call them a series, but books by William Bennett, former U.S. Secretary of Education have good, moral stories. For children specifically we own and used with our own children The Children's Book of Virtues . His books are available on Amazon and elsewhere, or get them from the library. Wh...

Re: Prompting?

I know that sometimes the update these articles or rewrite them, but I don't see anywhere in the article where he says he was prompted. I do believe he only feels sorry about it because he has been caught and could be charged. From a theoretical standpoint (if he was prompted), this is one of the ar...

Re: Fast Offering

And Ray is exactly right about Third World countries subsidizing the United States. We were told by a visiting 70 in a Bishop’s training session that Mexico has a net surplus of fast offerings, while the USA is a net user of fast offerings. Not questioning the truthfulness of this statement, I just...

Re: Can we be whole again?

Can we be restored to the level of belief and relative peace we felt as TBM's? I think so. I doubt I can ever see things the same way, but I can build the same level of belief and peace I once had with my current self. At least, that is what I hope for...still working on it. Likewise, it is what I ...

Re: Elder Christofferson: Study deeply instead

I agree with the premise, but I also think most people will not do so. Right now most of what members know about Joseph Smith, or any other prophet and many other subjects for that matter, comes from church manuals and teachings. I don't think that's going to change. There does seem to be a little m...
