The correlated god of Mormonism is kind of a narcissist.

Re: My Life Seems to Have a Plan

... and all the evils we experienced will somehow be made right. That's one of the things that helped crack the nut for me. What is "made right?" Person A might feel like action P is what is required as restitution but action P might be a "wrong" in person B's eyes. Person B mig...

Re: Compare & Contrast...

Uchtdorf had a good one. Lord, is it I?.

I think we'd all be better off focusing on what needs to change in ourselves rather than focusing on what needs to change in others. I'm certainly guilty of the latter in this thread.

Re: Compare & Contrast...

Watcher, I think you may have misread or misinterpreted my post or maybe I wasn't clear. I didn't claim that the church teaches people bad behaviors nor did I say I was angry. I have never heard anyone (member or leader) ever teach at the LDS church that anyone should ever embrace greed, hatred, spi...

Re: Compare & Contrast...

What would you hope to accomplish by having Church leaders speak out on geopolitical issues? This ... that it teaches correct principles and allows people to govern themselves ... They almost certainly aren't going to solve world problems by commenting but by not commenting they are failing to teac...

Re: Compare & Contrast...

I'm not convinced the church is in a position where it even can address more relevant matters. We like to believe the church is immune but I think we're just as caught up in the exact same types of problems that are plaguing the political arena. I'm right. You're wrong. I have to convince you to my ...

Re: I gave my talk

I know how nerve-racking giving a talk can be, especially when living in a new perspective.

Well done.

Re: If God loves his daughters as much as his sons... LDS Daily

This is starting from a conclusion, god doesn't want women to have the priesthood (at least currently), and working backwards to advance theories that attempt to justify the conclusion. I wonder whether (and hope that) some day in the not to distant future there will be another article published by ...

Re: The relationship of G-d to man

As a mathematician I will tell you that I have delt with such logic as you have suggested and am confident to tell you in advance that such logic if deeply flawed. Usually, such flaws are constructed by using the logic for one type of number theory with another type of number theory. Most often thi...

Re: The relationship of G-d to man

People can logic themselves into any position. For instance, I can use logic to show that one and two equals zero. Different people can arrive at contrasting conclusions but I don't think people on either side of a debate would see their own conclusion as being illogical. I think what we call logic ...
