  1. If imperfections disqualified one for a calling would anyone ever be called.
  2. When I'm going for short I just say the Church or say that he or she or they are members of the Church. I don't think I really ever used LDS or Mormon that much to start with so I haven't found it very difficult.
  3. This is the same God who knew when the woman with the issue of blood touched the border of His garment. (Luke 8:43-48) I think He knows who is speaking to Him. I realize that's a side issue to the main point, but you seem to be suggesting that the Savior doesn't know when we are speaking to Him. If He is aware of someone touches His clothing, I think we can take comfort in knowing that, regardless of location or circumstance, He knows when we speak to Him.
  4. After the change from home teaching to ministering and the merging of elders and high priests quorums how long did it take for those changes to be reflected in the handbook? Several months if I remember right. It takes time for the changes in wording in English to be drafted then approved. Then the changes would need to be translated into all the other languages that the handbook is published in, then approved. After that it can be published.
  5. Drinking hot tea linked with elevated risk of esophageal cancer https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/03/190320102028.htm https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/06/160615111712.htm Consuming hot tea at high temperatures is associated with an increased risk for esophageal cancer in those who also drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes, a new study finds. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/02/180205195627.htm
  6. The original manuscript for D&C 89 prohibited the drinking of any marsupial, but this was strangely left out of the published version.
  7. Great, don’t mess with my worldview. I am interested to know how you believe God would communicate a change in the law of chastity to His children.
  8. So what signals or communications from God should I be looking for? If, in the past, He revealed His will through His prophets (see Amos 3:7) why not today? If the law of chastity were to change by what means would He use to let His children know?
  9. When God has chosen to modify, do away with, or otherwise change doctrine, teachings, practices, or policies of the church He has done so through the voice of His prophets and apostles. If the law of chastity is to change in the future I am confident that He will reveal His will though the same pattern. Until that time I believe we are under command to follow the law as He has chosen to reveal it to us.
  10. By that logic we could safely work our way around every one of the 10 commandments.
  11. I would respectfully disagree. Organizationally the bishop, his counselors, the executive secretary, and all of the clerks are part of the bishopric. All members of the bishopric do not have the same calling, duties, or responsibilities, but they are part of the bishopric. If you check your wards organizations online you will find all of the callings I've named above under bishopric.
