Re: Christ's Ideals for Living (old SS manual)

Thanks for the book suggestion! I will need to go check it out! Sounds like something that would be "virtuous, uplifting, and of good report".

Bad Apologetics

Something I am often confronted with that really gets under my skin is when I hear members using what John Dehlin calls "Bad Apologetics" to explain things to others. Examples of this include that polygamy was for widows and spinsters, that the first wives were always consulted, etc. How do you resp...

Re: Navajo Intersex Children

Thank you for sharing that story, MWallace. I wasn't aware of the story, and it literally made me cry to know that those children are treated so well within their culture. It shows the depth of human love that is possible when we don't place people into boxes, and in a world where we aren't so scare...

Re: Wart Removal : The Gospel Doctrine Manual

Hmm, my opinion would appear to be the odd-man-out here, but I am going to express it nevertheless. If this is really bothering you... cutting up your peace... is this harm in asking for a release? I know for me personally, I can't even handle attending GD, let alone teaching it. There is tremendous...

Re: The 10 Year Itch?

Perhaps eventually. At the moment, I am not feeling in any rush to do so. Its a long explanation, but essentially I needed to take a step back in order to look at this faith journey more objectively and to let go of my anger. Realizing and admitting that I had lost my testimony in a Restoration of t...

Re: Jordan

Welcome, Jordon! I am relatively new here as well, but you will find this to be a wonderful place for supporting your faith when you no longer fit the Stage 3 Mormon mold (you'll find we quote Fowler's Stages of Faith around here alot, too).

Peace

I just wanted to thank everyone on here again for their helpful words, and provide an update. I have finally made peace with my situation and the church. However, in order to do this, I had to make a decision that I didn't think would ever be possible for me: I am resigning my temple recommend. I re...

Re: James Fowler's Stages of Faith

Thanks for the references. Its pretty fascinating research. I started as Stage 3 Catholic, had a crisis of faith at age 20, and ended up... a Stage 3 Mormon :lol: . I'm now (at age 30) in transition between 3 and 4. I feel like I am getting closer to Stage 4, as much of my anger is gone and I am sta...

Re: May I have your, Myers-Briggs/Jung type, please?

Fascinating topic. I am NOM and am an ENFP. Hubby is still active LDS and is INTJ. FWIW, I am also a type 2 on the eneogram.
