  1. Honesty, I'm not sure. Used to be have a year's supply of food Money set aside for emergencies Live within your financial means. Attend the Temple Live faithfully President Hinckley said we shouldnt go to extremes, which I guess means don't move to the top of the Rockies and live off the grid since the Second COming is getting closer? - - - - - - - I think the "Time is running out" is also like when Alma 34 said and which almost all the prophets said: Now is the time to repent. Since we don't know when we're going to die, we shouldn't put it off.
  2. his message came up a lot during General Conference. What do you think it's a warning of? Economic Recession / Depression? Political assassination? Natural disasters? All of the above? Only two of the above? or Second Coming?
  3. Well said. I suppose some of us seek personal revalation / transcendence in the operationalized restored gospel's weekly gatherings.
  4. We meet every other week. Some parents get it. Some wonder why thier boys arent earning all the awards on time, despite us meeting half as often
  5. Hi friends, A transcendence-seeking friend of mine will be working at the North Rim this summer. THe closest wards/branches LDS Classic Maps shows are at the Shrine of the Ages - 4 hours from North RIm, Bitter SPrings ward - 2 hours, one way from North Rim 2 hours 17 minutes, one way to Fredonia Ward / branch. IS there bychacne a smaller branch in/near the North Rim?
  6. and sometimes we assume or even see patterns when nOne exist. kasparov wrote about this
  7. except the right to choose a polygaous or polygynous marriage. Must be becuase the gov't leaders wanT to empower you that they restrict your legal optioNS.
  8. if the parenTs arent inVolved, it wonT work. if the BSA adults arenT inVolved, it wonT work. if the oys are more interested in sports or other scitviites, which is totoally fine, then it wonT work. no reason nOt to put your best foot forward, but marathoninG it - like runnInG the eNTire program anD doin Gwhat the parenTs anD otehrs iN Teh ward should have been doinG for years? nah
  9. nGood point, I might be wrong but the early church seemed to have other financial challenges - PEF, loosing thier ladn, livestock, farms, etc. more than once, losing their jobs, etc. more than once
  10. Given the odds of either our Church or the Catholic Church holding the true priesthood power, (https://strongreasons.wordpress.com/2009/04/15/you-mormons-are-ignoramuses/), and given the odds (slim) of my own personal ability to weigh the weaknesses of others (General Authorities) in the scales, I'm going to stick with paying my fire insurance. It's been incredibly difficult at times but has always paid off, to me, spiritually and financially. Every Temple that's been built in the last 20 years, I've helped pay for part of that, possibly every chapel as well - I may not have paid a large part of much of a part at all but fractional ownership = full ownership with the Lord
  11. Fast offerings literally feed His sheep. Tithing builds places of spiritual refuge (Chapels) and places where His people (sheep) can be sealed together for eternity. Becoming saviors on Mount Zion, to me, isn't limited to being given such a title due to Temple attendance alone but part of that title might come form helping to build those chapels and Temples in addition to serving there. The Savior isn't our Savior because He felt all of our pains, but rather He is everything - He felt all our guilt, anguish, overcame death, is our Advocate with the Father, etc. etc. “Now, the word turn here should be translated bind, or seal. But what is the object of this important mission? or how is it to be fulfilled? The keys are to be delivered, the spirit of Elijah is to come, … and the Saints to come up as saviors on Mount Zion [see Obadiah 1:21]. “But how are they to become saviors on Mount Zion? By building their temples, erecting their baptismal fonts, and going forth and receiving all the ordinances … in behalf of all their progenitors who are dead, and redeem them … ; and herein is the chain that binds the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the children to the fathers, which fulfills the mission of Elijah” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith [2007], 472–73). https://www.lds.org/manual/the-eternal-family-teacher-manual/lesson-14-becoming-saviors-on-mount-zion?lang=eng
  12. I'm a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ, just need a little feedback here... Not sure how to describe this but here goes- So I've noticed a trend among certain adults in my ward, like going to choir and then complaining about how the Bishop asked peope to join it but you had to exit since the music was too challenging, and just in general complaining when situations you put yourself in are challenging, or having so much pity for yourself and the situation you worked very hard to put yourself in that others have to compensate and do what your supposed to do in your calling - I can't help but ask myself: why did you put yourself in that situation? Like if the thorn in your side is asthma, you don't have to set your life's goal in running a marathon - but when you do, we should all applaud you, buy your book, hear your fireside, etc.and perhaps do something similar in our own lives? Not sure what the name for this is but curious as to if anyone else has seen this? Further, it seems psychologically unhealthy to be encouraged to blame yourself or your own perspective for drawing boundaries and saying no when it's necessary, this being the opposite of what a self-martyr complex-holder would do. “On ward and stake levels leadership changes are necessary and, often, too frequent for our convenience and comfort. Some of us are inclined to resent and resist personnel changes. “Why can’t they leave him in?” or “Why do they have to divide our ward?” Our vision may be limited. Seldom are changes made that do not bring needed progress to a person or a situation. How often in retrospect have we thought, “I didn’t understand why that change was made in the program or why that person was given such a calling, but now I can see that it was just what was needed for the time. During transitional times, patience, love, and long-suffering are needed. A permanent part of our philosophy should be, “Never allow yourself to be offended by someone who is learning his job.” “Change in our own church assignments may be even more disturbing. Often when we express a wish to never have that assignment, the bishop or stake president offers us the blessings of that self-same calling. At those times it is good to remember the words of Paul when he, troubled by many ailments, said, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philip. 4:13). https://www.lds.org/general-conference/1979/10/progress-through-change?lang=eng
  13. Do they represent ideas, people, places, things? A freind suggested it might be like the Parable of the Ten Virgins with the tares being like the unprepared virgins but evil / apostate yet active members? Nah
  14. ok. Here it is: According to biology - independent of religion - there are differences between the two genders, upper-body mass, speed, both excelling at solving different types of problems. But I fear I may have lost you already. By all means, keep the chair - just don't come knocking when all those at the table turn out to be far worse devils than the devils you already know
