  1. I would say it's impossible under correct priesthood protocols. But that doesn't mean that the Church wouldn't make an administrative exception.
  2. A counselor is just that. Someone called to be a counselor to a presiding office. They don't even need a specific priesthood office (not all counselors in the FP have been apostles). President Monson can call anyone he likes to be one of his counselors.
  3. Until Christ returns. So should we be trying to live as perfect a society now or not even attempt it until he gets here?
  4. Not yet, but soon. Right now it's Heavenly Father's planet and Christ's inheritance to be bestowed.
  5. Yes, absolutely. Does God tell even his own children everything? If we want to be like God we need to learn to reveal truth line upon line. If God dropped the veil and told us everything about this organization we are part of (his creation) how catastrophic would the results be?
  6. Sometimes especially not for them. And there are plenty of stories to back that up.
  7. This. Celestial means relating to heaven or space. Terrestrial means relating to earth (aka mortal). The meaning of Telestial is unknown. But given that 1. Heaven/Space and 2. Earth, then we could reason several options for the 3rd level meaning. In fact, someone did - https://bycommonconsent.com/2010/01/27/the-etymology-of-telestial/ I like the idea of it meaning distant or the end. Kind of fits. The usage of Sun -> Moon -> Stars is for comparison of levels of light and has no connection to the meaning of the words.
  8. Against. Christ was clear that pearls are not to be cast before swine. Not everything is for public consumption.
  9. This life is a Telestial existence.
  10. I have a picture of my mother dressed in a bird suit performing the "birdie dance" for one of those. Yeah...glad that's gone.
  11. Nah...my kids are far more likely to see the supernatural confirmed. Time is ticking.
  12. I agree with this somewhat. And the members posting on this board provide the evidence to back it up. Most people who post here at this point have heard the "shocking facts". You have those who were plunged into faith crisis, those who walked away from the Church, those who stay and criticize the church, those who choose to ignore or twist the historical "facts" to keep faith, and those who have been able to integrate the facts as they are and maintain their faith. We on this board are the proof that the interpretation and narrative surrounding these facts are at least as important, if not more important, than the facts themselves. (I'll let everyone decide where they fit in. )
  13. Well, I'm glad you know better than Joseph did. Think I'll stick with him anyway and not stretch the meanings of dwell and personally to mean revelation and through a prophet.
  14. Of course. But the CoJCoLDS clearly doesn't have "Millennium to go". It has however long until Christ returns and takes over.
  15. He will literally be dwelling on earth during the Millennium, ruling over us as his Church of the Firstborn. So no, I don't mean by his voice when speaking of the Millennial period. I mean literally ruling and reigning on the earth. D&C 29:11 For I will reveal myself from heaven with power and great glory, with all the hosts thereof, and dwell in righteousness with men on earth a thousand years, and the wicked shall not stand. D&C 43:29 For in mine own due time will I come upon the earth in judgment, and my people shall be redeemed and shall reign with me on earth. D&C 1:36 And also the Lord shall have power over his saints, and shall reign in their midst, and shall come down in judgment upon Idumea, or the world. 10th AoF 10 We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory. "The Savior will return to the earth in power and great glory to reign personally during a millennium of righteousness and peace." - Dallin H. Oaks - Ensign May 2004
