  1. to quote Barney Rubble, "could be, couuuuuuuld be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
  2. I didn't read it as a dig on me either!
  3. Fed the sisters tonite, one was wearing slacks. I never said a peep about it. The elders, after the sisters left, said that she and another sister wear pants sometimes but they haven't seen others wearing them but they aren't around all the sisters all the time

    Temple Sealing Changes

    that's the way I remember it too, mind you you have to be alert and attentive to do it and not passed out on the floor from nerves................
  5. you honestly think Bill knew these references existed?
  6. and he doesn't do the same? he's the whack a mole the Renlunds were talking about, always moving onto the next thing, trying to stay relevant in the competitive world of exmo podcasting, blogs etc. He got caught in his own trap, he offered something he didn't have for something he didn't think existed and he is now as they say 'reaping the whirlwind'
  7. if he had the money he should pay for it himself, I am going to say he can't afford to pay his debt, which times being what they are but he should have planned this all out before and it's crazy to have others pay. I think it's a trap of his own making and he fell in
  8. but he shouldn't have made promises he had no idea how he was going to keep, he made the offer with no idea if the quotations were in existence and voila! someone called his bluff and he got caught in his own trap and was scrambling around trying to cough up the dosh. He offered something he didn't have and I find that deplorable
  9. I can't, won't and shouldn't make promises for other people is what i'm saying, especially when it comes to money
  10. someone else's money isn't really his to offer, it's like me saying yeah i'll pick you up in my friend's lamborghini, without their consent!
  11. Oh they probably would get along! hahahaha! My Dad doesn't like it when people complain about politics, he used to say something like, come talk to me when you see tanks coming down the street from two different armies, then we'll we'll hear your complaint!
  12. my Father was born in Germany in 1932 and he too came through the depression, his attitude seems to be "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer" Bill made claims and he got caught and now he's trying to make his business other people's business, why should I or anyone else bail him out? I, nor anyone else didn't make a stupid bet, he did and he should pay for it himself.
  13. if he had in mind that others would pay it then why ask for $150? why is he spending other people's money? what gain would they get from giving him money? he got caught in his own trap and now wants others to bail him out
  14. Um, is it my fault that someone else has doubts? I find it strange that Jana Reiss uses the word, "victim" when exmormons are saying how happy they are they left the Church, how deluded members of the Church are, how racist etc. the leaders are, yadda yadda yadda- What are we to believe about exmormons? Are they happy victims? how many actual victims of something consider themselves happy? I was victimized twice in my life, happy isn't what I would consider myself at that time
  15. I'm surprised he asked the question, he also said he's looked into every "nook and cranny" of the Church and knows more than nearly everyone, so why is he asking? he should, by his own admission, already be familiar with this aspect of the Church.
  16. I'm sure he was doing other things while there, more bang for the buck! I don't know his schedule but he probably did one or two stake conferences or meetings, Temples (two in Hawaii) and he probably toured the mission. I just listened to Elder Holland for the Urdaneta Phillipines Temple groundbreaking and he mentioned he was there on sunday for a stake conference. I'm sure they try to fit in as many things are humanely possible

    How was two hour church?

    our local grocery store is changing up their displays and all kinds of mucking about but one of the managers said they could close it down for 6 months and have everything moved but then all the customers would get used to going elsewhere so they are doing it slower and messier but retaining the customers.So based on that, I think you're right they wouldn't go to every other weekend as people would just stop altogether or get confused as to what week church was on, etc.

    How was two hour church?

    Something i've noticed is the folks who take handi transit have been absent since the new change. We have maybe 3 or 4 but they haven't been there, I figure that it's harder to arrange for just a two hour pickup then it is for 3. One person could theoretically could get a lift but the others with wheelchairs, etc. can't

    Mormon Helping Hands

    Christ also said in Matthew 5:14-16 "14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

I'm suprised they eliminated the Canada Halifax Mission, that is a large area and I can't imagine how they are going to split it up now. Sounds like a busy day in CHQ

    Temple Work for Missing People

    Correct me if I am wrong but you could do her work 10 years after a death certificate is made. The 110 year rule is for people that its so far back now and you have no leads and it's just a mystery but in your case the death certificate is needed and then 10 years after that to get her work done. There was a GA years ago, Elder Royden G. Derrick, his uncle went missing and they had nothing, no leads, no contact and they had his work done 110 years after he was born. That's different from another case I know of where someone presumably drowned but they never found the body so they got a death certificate and then had to wait 10 years after that, in case the person turns up, but she never did and then they could do the work. I don't know what it takes to get a death certificate or what but worth looking into. edit to add https://www.lds.org/manual/introduction-to-family-history-student-manual/chapter-7?lang=eng scroll down to presumed dead

    Video games

    I haven't played a video game since 1991! I think it's a problem! Check out the girlfriend/mom/friend freakout videos on youtube, yikes! I think phones is a problem though as well
  23. I think it was Elder Lyman Wight of the Twelve who said that Charity is doing for others what they cannot do for themselves
