Re: April 2016 General Conference

Some guy made it sound like mechanics, or any blue-collar workers, should not go to the temple until they have scrubbed their hands raw, taking "clean hands" way too literally. Wow.

Re: April 2016 General Conference

Oh, how I wish I would hear more talks about hope and salvation through Christ and fewer about prophets and temples. I am a lost soul and a broken vessel. I hope God can save me. I am sorry to go negative here but I need to unload. I work in the heart of Utah County and the new Provo Temple has been...

Re: My Soul is Splitting

Shawn I'm sorry for your pain but I have gone through similar things that you are experiencing right now. For me it was mostly about Historical things so I decided to just take the church for what it is right now . A good church full of good people trying to do their best. I have tried to focus on ...

Re: My Soul is Splitting

Thanks for your support everyone! DarkJedi, I'm trying to believe the church is good, but I don't see it that way right now. I actually have to restrain myself from typing stuff that would break this forum's rules of etiquette ;) Heber, I do believe families can find ways to make it work. If I conti...

My Soul is Splitting

I no longer believe. I am holding on to a small hope that the church is where I should be despite many problems with it. It would be nice if I could believe the church is true because of what I have learned, not despite what I have learned. My wife is an orthodox believer. My teenage kids are headed...

Re: Polyandry question

Holy Cow, I appreciate your post. I can't speak for the women in the church, but I would guess that this is how many of them must feel about the claim that it's 'okay' for polygamy to be practiced during some periods but not others...But, if women have been expected to accept the doctrine of polygam...

Re: Lehi's daughters

Holy Cow wrote: Even Paul wrote some very sexist things in the NT.
The authenticity of 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus is disputed. I like thinking it wasn't really Paul who wrote that stuff in 1 Timothy.

Re: Polyandry question

That sucks, Marty. A couple months ago I told my wife that I didn't want to pay tithing on my income. I reasoned that if she paid tithing on her income, it would be more than is necessary to pay a 10th of our surplus. She essentially told me that such a change would destroy our marriage and lead to ...
