  2. The Changing of the Guard; how did it go in your meeting?

    I was asked by some friends to help explain this change. this is what I came up with. D&C 107:11 11 An elder has a right to officiate in his stead when the high priest is not present. Because of the change in the church structure this past conference I went back and looked at a few scripture verses that might have given this change a bit of a problem, for one this verse in section 107. I asked myself how could a Elder officiate over a high priest? Then after much review of the information the church gave on the matter i found a little scripture nugget, the high priest in this verse refers to a presiding high priest. I was super excited because this interpretation is a prophetic interpretation, i mean how awesome to see prophets in our day still receive and reveal the word of the Lord. One of my favorites was when Gordon B. Hinckley told us that the Joel 2:28–32 has been fulfilled in our day. I look forward to more of these prophetic scriptural Insights. Remember “revelation with information.” good inspiration is based upon good information, today we all sat in a circle and introduced ourselves to each other. The meeting was great, there were a few funny jokes. i told my friends that I really like the change and hope and pray we get a leader that is gun ho about it because I am tired of leaders that phone it in.
  3. Why no news conference for the new apostles.

    This seems like a good reason, because the media would only be all over that and whose to say someone might try and take over the meeting by yelling.
  4. I was wondering why? Do you think because there race would over shadow their call?
  5. Priesthood session leads to questions

    As I have been studying this change and listening to the talks on it over the last 18 hours. The one thing that points out to me is that even if you hold a certain office you are not always functioning in that office. Example a bishop is always a bishop but when he is released he is no longer using that office but using the office of elder.
  6. Reorganization of the Melchizedek Priesthood

    Our stake president only ordains high priest with a calling or if you are his best friend.😋
  7. Reorganization of the Melchizedek Priesthood

    I see this just the way they explained it we will have streangth and wisdom combined. The only question I have is what does " or otherwise determined by the stake President " mean. Now that only stake presidents,high councilor, bishopric and patriarch are to be high priest, why else would the stake president need to determine someone to be a high priest?
  8. Baptism ceasing? NT Scholars

    I was having a discussion with one of my students about baptism, he said baptism is a work and is not apart of the gospel and can not save you. Then pointed out 1 Corinthians 1:10-17 mostly focusing of verse 17. Saying “see if baptism was important why did Paul say he was not sent to baptize? My response: For Christ sent me not to baptize,.... Some think the apostle refers to his particular mission from Christ, (Acts 26:16) in which no mention is made of his administering the ordinance of baptism; but no doubt he had the same mission as the rest of the apostles had, which was to baptize as well as to preach(Matt28:18-20). Also if the misunderstanding of Paul’s saying he was not sent to baptize at all was true then that would make him a liar because by his own words he baptized a whole house hold (1 Corinthians 1:16). The teaching of this chapter could be seen as Paul did not come to teach one aspect of the gospel, but the whole gospel and doctrines of Christ (Faith, repentance, baptism, gift of the Holy Spirit.) The Same could be said if the people where debating on the words of wisdom, with Paul saying “I came not to teach the words of wisdom but the gospel of Jesus Christ.” Then we would be having a different argument. 1 Corinthians 3:4-8 shows that all the church leaders work as a unified team in bringing the power of salvation to the children of God. The same understanding can be found in Hebrews 6:1-3 where Paul teaches that the foundations of salvation are set and we need to learn the ways of Christ more in-depth or perfectly. 1 Corinthians 1:10-17 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; 15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name. 16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. 1 Corinthians 3:4-8 4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? 5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.

    I love service, my family and I do a lot of it. the only times we don’t is because we need to take a break and take care of our own family task. then we serve again.
  11. 2018 curriculum

    Agree
  12. 2018 curriculum

    I am not sure but I think the come follow me-Melchizedek/relief society, if ping to have different topics then the youth Sunday school. also the manual might be only in the ensign but it might also have it own section in the lds gospel library. i like the 2nd and 3rd Sunday change because for me teaching from a conference talk is easier to teach from as well as this might get people to pay attention during GC.😳. i like that they kept adult Sunday school the same, I have been seeing new add on resources though, but I always use my own questions with the lesson to get the group dialogue up.
