Re: I choose to believe

Doubter, everything you say sounds familiar to many of us. This is a good place to work out or work on
your doubts, fears, problems plus all that you do believe. We try not to judge or find fault.
Keep coming back. And, Welcome.

I too choose to believe.

Re: Is excommunication the worst the church can do?

As an organization & as members, we can really complicate the hell out of what it means to be a "follower" of Jesus Christ & to define what it means to be a member of His church. If Christ were on the earth today, would He make it this complicated? Are there any examples in scripture where He excomm...

Re: When F&T goes wrong

There was a F&T meeting within my 1st year after being baptized. The speaker was a Principle of a local public school. Their son was in High School & had recently committed suicide. He (the father) was trying to "publicly" make sense of what their family was going through. It was so sad to watch him...

I watched an old movie tonight.

I saw an old movie tonight titled: Inherit the Wind. Starring Spencer Tracy & Frederic March. It dealt with the trial of a public school teacher who chose to teach the writings of Charles Darwin & Evolution. The core message was: does man have the right to think for himself & to teach ideas that are...

Re: Temple and Family History Leader

I had this position about two years ago & loved it. I love working on the computer, discovering new history about my family and teaching one on one or small groups. (I never liked teaching big groups.) There is very little orthodox lessons or principles to teach. It is, for the most part, practical ...

Re: lazy and lax - April 2021

This is a new article from the Liahona. There is no mention of lazy or lax. (A little joke.)

Re: General Conference April 2021 - Discussion Thread

I've been thinking more about Pres Oaks talk about the US Constitution. When he started talking, I was a bit surprised. This is the Easter season, Christ has risen & now let's talk about the US Constitution? Then I was thinking about the recent election & the turmoil at the Capital afterwards. It is...

Re: Conference coming up

Personally, I think they're going to have to announce a huge shift in full-time missions in the near future. Hopefully making them more service and humanitarian focused with less proselyting. I think at least in the developed world we've reached a point where missionaries knocking on doors just ann...

Re: When F&T goes wrong

I never thought I would say this but: I would of paid money to attend those F&T meetings.
Just to see the faces on the stand & to hear the conversations after the meeting.
