  1. Today
  2. For what it's worth, as a member of the church, I don't agree with Teddy on his claim.
  3. Alma 32. It's sweet to me. You don't want to try to make it objective do you? Not possible. That makes it true to me. It's Religion. Not science. I mean how did we decide we had more truth than other Christian churches? No difference. Ask Navidad about that one.
  4. The anchor is a good idea. There Is nothing to prevent one from wearing one.
  5. You believe he is right in the bolded phrase? Not a claim we put a huge symbolic importance importance and salvative efficacy, but his claim that it is more than any other Christian church? How do you make that comparison of importance to each If so? How can the "more than" be measured in your view?
  6. The only one I ever really considered was the "universal" with CTR in a dozen of languages or so. It was more about feeling I shared something with others all around the world. Isn't something that can be conveyed very well outside of language or flags and flags feel more nationalistic to me than communal. Universal ctr spinner ring
  7. I just want to wish everyone a blessed Passover Sunday. i will use it to remember what our Savior did for us as the Passover lamb whose blood was spread on the door lentel marking the door/entrance into the house of God.
  8. What worried me more were some of the streets covered in grease early in the morning. Very dangerous.
  9. No, I just viewed the recording of the news conference, and from that, I now have the same understanding as you.
  10. There are “Assembly Rooms” (with the pulpits in each end) in temples other than the Salt Lake Temple. I don’t recall just now whether any of the other so-called “pioneer temples” in Utah have them.
  11. It appears you are right. Maybe the meeting space in the CAB is not as commodious as I remembered it being.
  12. I just watched the news conference again. At the 32 minute: 50 second mark, Elder Wilson mentions that administrative meetings Church leaders currently hold in the Temple will then be held in “designated areas of the JSMB.” I assumed he was referring to the weekly meeting of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve. But perhaps he is referring to some other meeting.
  13. Holy cow you're a brave man. And I hope you wore nose plugs. I really like those Farmer John murals with pigs frolicking in heaven. (Seriously) https://www-vice-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.vice.com/amp/en_us/article/yv5agx/this-farmer-johns-slaughterhouse-mural-is-really-creepy?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQCCAE%3D#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.vice.com%2Fen_us%2Farticle%2Fyv5agx%2Fthis-farmer-johns-slaughterhouse-mural-is-really-creepy
  14. Stickle if you must, but no one will enforce the rule. The mods know he is right. Sorry, it's a Mormon board and we have confirmation bias on our side.
  15. I did no such thing, CFR. I didn't mischaracterize Calm, CFR.
  16. I have never seen a President of the Church in the temple setting, but all members wear the same temple clothing with slight variations of pattern or material. There are no insignias of rank or office for bishops, stake presidents, etc. I assume there would be none for the prophet, nor would they serve any purpose.
  17. Seriously? You really aren't reading what she said. But feel free to mischaracterize her if it helps your data free narrative.
  18. I have been wondering where the First Presidency and Twelve will meet each week while the SLC Temple is undergoing renovation. There are other temples in the SL Valley, but that could be an inconvenience. Of course, they could simply meet in the LDS HQ bldg. Just wondering. ETA: I see that Okrahomer and Scott have already addressed that. Still, there are occasions when they feel they must meet under holier circumstances. What then?
  19. Oh for heaven's sakes. You read stories. Meanwhile, you ignore piles of statistics. There is a difference between glamorizing suicide and talking about it. Maybe you can read some stories about that on your non factual sites. Suicide is a serious problem amongst our youth. It deserves more scrutiny than a few stories.
  20. That’s true. Did I misunderstand that part of the news conference?
  21. Please note the comments of the non-LDS theologians whom I quote above.
  22. You sure you're not thinking of beautiful downtown Vernon? I used to work there.
  23. Maybe something like this: https://www.forbes.com/sites/ericmack/2018/03/09/carbon-nanotube-membrane-breakthrough-is-real-world-star-trek-replicator-mattershift/#7618634a520f
