  1. The absolute best one of the Conference was Elder Renlund’s “Unwavering Commitment to Jesus Christ” about the Banza family in Zaire. Studied Theology in Switzerland and came into contact with the church and were baptized. Another exchange student, Brother Mbuyi, was studying in Belgium, and came into contact with the church and was baptized. The three new members returned to Zaire. In February 1986 a petition was made for official government recognition of the Church. The signatures of three citizens of Zaire were required. The three happy signatories of the petition were Brother Banza, Sister Banza, and Brother Mbuyi. Amazing story
  2. You need to dumb Rorty waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down. He could probably take a page from "Preach My Gospel" about simplifying the message so that a child can understand.
  3. Probably not a hill they were willing to die on in 2019... I do like the new way it is phrased though
  4. Hamba Tuhan has a list in the other thread with all the changes in red. There’s quite a few of changes that can be missed if you’re not seeing them side by side.
  5. Sabbath Day was expanded upon in my opinion. It caught my attention because it’s one I personally need to work on.
  6. Interesting. Thanks for pointing that out. I always felt uncomfortable answering “yes” or “no” to the old question “are you honest in your dealings with your fellowmen”? I always thought a more honest answer, and the one I always responded with, was, “I try to be”. That question has also been updated to a better phrasing as well.
  7. I think it was interesting that he essentially raised the bar for temple recommend worthiness just prior to that announcement.
  8. 😳 General Priesthood in Jackson County?
  9. President Nelson—very exciting...call to Missouri in April?
  10. If that’s what the Lord wants, then it’ll happen. But you know, and I know, and everyone reading this knows, based on previous comments of yours, that would somehow be too little, too late, and never enough before moving on to the next area where the church is falling short.
  11. Lot’s of temples in Africa lately...seems to be one included in every announcement. Work seems to be going very well there. World Report today was very encouraging.
  12. I don’t think so. He’s kind of the reliable war horse when it comes to uncomfortable truths.
  13. Do you disagree that we must love God first by keeping his commandments?
