  2. Yes
  3. So, you're saying that "real Christians" don't keep the 4th Commandment, then? Odd.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. But you didn't "see a direct correlation to Lucifer". No such thing existed in that thread. You chose to be offended over nothing.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. So you're saying you'd happily take a job for which you are on call 24/7 for the rest of your life, for far less than $120,000 a year, right? I don't do anything of anywhere near the importance of what the apostles do, but even my time is more valuable than that. I wonder what you do for a living that you would place such a low value on your skills. By the way, what does putting kids through college or the number of kids one has, have to do with compensation? Is that how your employer determines wages? By how many kids you have? If so, they've got to be the only such employer on the planet. And I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be legal.
  12. #humblebrag
  13. Even most in the secular world acknowledge that an emotional affair is wrong. But some guy in the church comes up with some BS that it's just another version of polygamy, so it's all cool and church and God-sanctioned?
  14. It always boggles my mind that such surgeries are even possible. Prayers going up.
  15. I haven't read all of the responses to your question and my post may be way off the mark, but....I just thought I would throw this out there. I am struggling with attendance right now myself. I never thought that would be the case. I know that probably sounds holier-than-thou or snotty, but it's not meant to be. There are just reasons that my struggle surprises me (and there's no one to talk to about it). But tonight, reading this thread, I go back to a memory that pops up from time to time. I remember in a class years ago, a young woman asking the rabbi (I converted from Judaism) his advice. Being a Jew was part of who she was, and always would be, but she was struggling at that time with believing that God exists. She asked the rabbi what she should do. The rabbi's advice was to "act as if". Act as if she believed. Do those things that she would do if she did believe that God existed. Act "as if", and then see what happens.
