  1. Homosexuality is widely accepted now but these teens are still 4x as likely to attempt suicide. What would you call it then?
  2. The LBTGQ lifestyle is very unstable. Now put two unstable individuals together and there will be problems. No reason to blame churches.

    LDS Tools app issue

    The app stopped working on my old iphone. I got a new phone and then it worked.
  4. From the Saints book After the Lord spoke to him in the dark, miserable dungeon, Joseph no longer feared that God had forsaken him and the church. In letters to Edward Partridge and the Saints, he testified boldly of the latter-day work. “Hell may pour forth its rage like the burning lava of Mount Vesuvius,” he declared, “yet shall Mormonism stand.” He was sure of this. “Truth is Mormonism,” he exclaimed. “God is the author of it. He is our shield. It is by Him we received our birth. It was by His voice that we were called to a dispensation of His gospel in the beginning of the fullness of times.”

    Church employees are audited to make sure they pay their tithing.
  6. I just love the cold hot dogs at the ward barbecue. I also got a slice of pumpkin pie at the barbecue. Upon trying to eat it, I discovered it was still frozen since it had never been cooked. It is best to eat before you go to a church dinner just in case.

    They don't tell you how to pay it. They are just hoping that you pay more.
  8. The evidence is everywhere. Gay marriage is the law of the land. More than half the members support the LGBTQ agenda. Do you live under a rock?
  9. They are trying to get the youth excited about the priesthood and temple work before they get caught in the LGBTQ propaganda. The problem is an 11 year old isn't ready for the priesthood.
  10. The retention rate of Young Single Adults is 25%. They are trying to speed up the process so the kids go the temple and get married sooner.
  11. There are at least 7000 senior missionaries included in the number of 67000 so that would mean 40,000 elders. So yes it has grown since 2011 slightly but much less than the early 2000's. my mistake. I still think the amount of women serving is higher than the 20,000 quoted.
  12. Instead of improving youth programs and allocating real money to the youth programs, they have tried to advance everyone early in hopes that the youth stay in the church. I am saddened that so many youth are falling away. We spend so much money on real estate but only give the youth a $2000 yearly budget.
  13. As of June 2018 Today, there are about 67,000 full-time missionaries serving worldwide in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Of those, about 30 percent — more than 20,000 — are sisters, a figure that has increased 17 percent since the age-change announcement in 2012, said Elder Brent H. Nielson, a General Authority Seventy and the Missionary Department's executive director.
  14. The amount of women going on missions has increased dramatically. The amount of young men has dropped.
  15. Why not make them Priests when they turn 12 since the kids are developing so much quicker these days? When I teach the youth Sunday School classes, the kids are clueless on the scripture stories and gospel principles.
