  1. studying the book of Mormon

    I've tried to study the Book of Mormon daily since I joined the church in 2011. No fancy process, just a goal of a chapter a day, making notes on whatever strikes me. When I get to the end, I start all over again at the beginning.
  2. conference today

    And I, along with scores of others, clearly understood what Elder Oaks was actually saying, that the Family Proclamation was revealed to the Prophets by Heavenly Father, and most definitely not a "man-made process". Perpetual critics won't understand that, as they won't believe any revelations not given to the prophets in a manner that they demand, rather than the manner Heavenly Father chooses. Especially if the revelation doesn't meet with their own self-focused needs.
  3. Can I ask for some prayer please

    I am beginning to understand more fully how stressful this has been for you. The Eagle Creek fire evacuations are getting closer and closer and I am beginning to freak out. And to think some areas go through this almost every year!
  4. Can I ask for some prayer please

    Quickly out of control fire here in the Columbia Gorge, with an estimated 150 hikers trapped. Just watched a live rescue of one hiker by helicopter. Not in any danger where I am, but the smoke is heavy, affecting breathing and eyes. Glad you and your family are safe.
  5. BoM The Musical in SLC

    No, they are not. They are showing joyful faces that come from what happens after you read the Book of Mormon, INSTEAD OF seeing the play. Experiencing the real thing as opposed to a perversion of it.
  6. Daughters of eve articles of faith

  7. Observing the Sabbath

    So, you're saying that "real Christians" don't keep the 4th Commandment, then? Odd.
  8. Daily scripture study

    But there is more scripture than just that which is found in the Bible. This is a Mormon discussion board, so you should know that. I suspect your statement about "discernment" is very telling regarding that.
  9. I remain somewhat perplexed as to why a man who claims to be a member of the church never misses an opportunity to promote pornography and similar "activities". I ask this question sincerely - do you honestly think that Heavenly Father looks down on his children who have chosen the so-called career of performing sexual acts with random people, having those acts filmed and sold for profit, and for the sexual gratification of the viewers - that Heavenly Father is pleased? I suspect that you will refuse to answer the question, and will instead throw your usual snit. But I have no doubt that our Heavenly Father's response is not one of approval or of joy in such a choice. Or even a nonchalant..."eh, no harm done". I can only imagine the response being that of a heartbroken father, knowing the dark path they are choosing and wishing to spare them the heartache and devastation ahead.
  10. So predictable. Any time porn, nudity, "adult clubs" and the like are brought up in a thread - there you are rushing in to defend and glorify it all. And that you throw out a CFR, smugly confident that your viewpoint of porn being a wonderful thing cannot be challenged by such silly things as research and facts, well, it just shows how deep-seated your problem is. Why are you so worried that pornography will (has been) proven to be damaging, degrading....just plain wrong? Is it because you are unable to give up your use of it? Or because you simply are unwilling? Are you as upfront in your defense and promotion of pornography, strip clubs, etc. with your bishop? With the women you try to date? Or do you save it for anonymous message boards so the aforementioned people in your real life don't find out about it? By the way, your statement about what "most young women" like to wear is just straight BS and says more about you than it does about young women.
  11. I am Not Satan

    But you didn't "see a direct correlation to Lucifer". No such thing existed in that thread. You chose to be offended over nothing.
  12. I guess I missed all those "comments" from church leaders implying that homosexuality is can be caught like the common cold. But I am sure you can provide them for me, right? I am curious to read them in their original source and context.
  13. No, you're not. Your main participation here is to criticize the church, its leaders and members. You deliberately try to find things - "news", "leaks", what-have-you that (feebly) attempt to make the church look bad and then run here to post it. And then make absurd claims of "embarrassment" or concern. I left Orthodox Judaism to join the church. I see no need for embarrassment here and I find it absurd and bizarre that you would feel such, ostensibly on behalf of Jews everywhere. I don't think you're embarrassed at all. I think you're actually feeling rather gleeful about finding yet another way (as absurd and non-sensical as it is) to bash the church. As I mentioned, I left Judaism. For the life of me, I don't understand why people who are so critical and hateful of the church (many of whom have left the church), spend any time - much less so much time - hanging around on discussion boards trying to get their licks in against the church. When I try to imagine myself (or anyone else I know in the same situation) doing the same on Jewish message boards, it's all I can do to keep from laughing hysterically. I mean, I have a life, you know?
  14. Why not? Anything posted on public forums is....well...public. We had a poster here a while back who - while presenting one persona here - was heavily active on another forum for writers of explicit LGBT pornography. Kind of gives you a different picture of a person, don't you think? Crying 0h-woe-is-me-I-can't-get-a-temple-recommend on this board, seeking sympathy and attention, all the while they are reveling in, and bragging about, the filth they are writing elsewhere. If one has nothing to hide, and they are posting comments on a public online forum for all the world to see, why would they mind if anyone read their posts from other forums? I have no idea which board is the one referred to as the "trailer park", but I have seen from comments here, more than one member of this forum over the years , has posed as an honest participant of this board, all the while making fun of this forum and the members here, elsewhere. So, yeah, posts elsewhere might provide a more honest picture of the person you are dealing with.
