Re: Temple Robes Change

I am of two minds on the subject. 1) That sounds great Curt. This could be a precursor to a doctrinal change. 2) Is the presentation of the endowment ceremony doctrine? The FP message on this matter seemed to indicate that none of the changes affected doctrine and that the endowment was open to cont...

Re: Come Follow Me - Pilot Best Practice

The church has never been overly transparent about things in development. That is just not their MO.
