Re: Apostasy (2017)

The trailer alone gives me goosebumps. Very much looking forward to watching that. Thanks for the tip! A movie that also covers the same topic (sort of) is "Kreuzweg" ("Stations of the Cross"). It's one of my favorites. Not sure how similar it is to Apostasy, or how relatable it is to LDS, though. W...

Re: Choose God or Husband Article on LDS.org

They even posted it on the LDS FB-page (or, do they do that with every blog post?). I don't always delve deep into everything they post on the LDS FB-page but, I tend to :clap: quite often just by looking at the titles/what they post. The comments on it weren't all that bad either. Many people seeme...

Re: Suicide and Hell - LDS Answer 2018

I like it, a lot (everything at suicide.lds.org). As someone who's currently dealing with suicidal thoughts (and have racked up 6+ attempts in the past 2 years, most of which I survived from by sheer "luck"... or divine intervention... I don't know)... I can't help but think "meh". I've had "random ...

Re: The whens, wheres, and whys of speaking up at church

I'm not sure how I will act in priesthood-meetings and such, but I'll try my hardest to "speak up" with respect to the orthodoxy. A few days ago someone posted a long quote from RMN in our wards facebook group. He quoted some passage in the Book of Mormon where Jesus says "those who do not follow my...

Re: Constantly searching

dande48 : Thanks. To be honest I don't really feel like I have much spare time on my hands. I probably have plenty of time, but I always feel as if I have no time. I'm studying to become a nurse (I'm in a non-english speaking country, but the equivalent would be "RN/Registered nurse"... 3 years of ...

Re: Constantly searching

Thanks for the replies. You have a good point, nibbler , regarding "true testimony". "No true Scotsman" was a new thing to me - thanks for sharing. I think what I'm thinking of is "I need to be comfortable with my own faith, instead of simply being a 'yes-man'". I don't know what kind of view I have...

Constantly searching

Hello, I joined LDS way too quickly. Last autumn I took contact with the missionaries (in other words - I didn't just happen to "run into them" or anything), and was immidiately immersed in everything. After 1-2~ months I was already baptized. I was refered to as "golden" by one sister missionary, p...

Re: Oscarson quote about the Spirit

Even during my (brief) "swallow everything that was told"-period, I couldn't really buy the whole "good feeling" = "The Spirit". Because, well... I'm "hypersensitive" emotionally. I've been diagnosed with BPD, even (although I'd argue I'm 60+% "cured"), so I rarely trust my feelings very much. In DB...
