Re: U.S. polygamy - looking ahead

Ray, I think there is DNA evidence that he did have sex with many of these women. In addition, just because DNA evidence doesn't exist with some of the women does not mean that he did not have sex with them. The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. Do you really believe Ray that he ju...

Re: U.S. polygamy - looking ahead

Joseph gets painted incorrectly all the time. No matter how someone feels about polygamy, polyandry, etc., it's important to be as accurate as possible when talking about it and Joseph's involvement. I agree Ray 100 percent! However, It was not normal in Joseph Smith's day for grown married men to ...

Re: "Behind" in tithing?

Interestingly, today's lesson in Priesthood (combined Elders and High Priests) was about tithing - and one of the Bishopric counselors mentioned the idea of being behind in tithing and how there is no need to "make it up" in order to be baptized or attend the temple. Wouldn't having to "catch up" o...

Re: U.S. polygamy - looking ahead

Recently I have heard quite a few discussions at Church and at Church activities about Polygamy being made legal, especially after the recent Gay Marriage Court victories. Personally, I believe many of my "Brothers" want polygamy to be made legal. I am scared to think what they would want the accept...

Re: "Behind" in tithing?

Just my 2 cents! 1. I think you are being way too hard on yourself! 2. I don't think setting up anything with your bank account that is a "forget it and fix it deal" is a good idea. 3. I don't believe God punishes people for tithing mistakes and/or not tithing, but the LDS Church will and possibly y...

I don't believe in a lot of black and white type thinking. In my opinion, there is a great deal of grey area.

Re: Strong Culture without Ostracization?

Isn't it ironic that at church there is so much ostracizing in the first place? What about not judging others? The constant judging of others who are not LDS or less “active” is one of the hard parts of church for me. As someone who grew up attending a Protestant sect, there was less judgment of oth...

Re: I'm too introverted

Some people don't talk very well either -- that's why I have exit clauses ready in case the conversation tanks Half the time its because THEY are not comfortable. I have also noticed that sometimes you have to make several hit and run attempts to talk to people before they trust you enough to talk....

Re: Strong Culture without Ostracization?

I think which people are on the "fringes" is very subjective to the group doing the judging.

Re: I'm too introverted

Brown, don't be too hard yourself! Socializing can be difficult sometimes. In many ways I can really relate to how you feel interacting with people at church. As a convert, I feel like people at church are so different than I am. What works for me is that I keep a smile on my face, introduce myself ...
