  1. Love and peace among the members

    No priesthood quorum is complete without the occasional donnybrook to keep the blood flowing, the mind sharp, and the knees bent.
  2. No Death Before the Fall?

    Fine thank you. And you?
  3. By Biblical comparison alone, the LDS Church is already THE Orthodoxy.
  4. No Death Before the Fall?

    Nephi 2:22 applies the state of no death begins after the creation in finished; it is not applied to the creative state. Also, thinking of a timeline: Creation/Evolution/Death---> Garden state of no death ---> The Fall ----> Evolution and Death continues ....claiming that there was no death before the Fall is still a true statement. It's a bit more complex to try and tidy up all the details, but one can also have a localized garden state of no death, with death and evolution occurring all around it.
  5. Strange have been the anti-Mormon wanderings within CRI; from Walter Martin to Hank Hanegraff: Interesting that he went back to early Christianity. Also worthy of notation are his new-found critics' emphasis on the authority of scripture when the Bible itself refers instead to the authority of the prophets and their ability to interpret scripture over the the lack of the general public's ability and authority to do so.
  6. Just another Mormon Troglodyte?

    I don't hate anything. Tenure is wrong though because it's unaccountable.
  7. Just another Mormon Troglodyte?

    Only if it's the tenured ivory tower variety would such a destination be automatic. There doesn't have to be a school or institution for this variety to exist. It could be a website with low quality water and electrical hookups for example....
  8. MD&D Posters You'd Most Like to Meet IRL

    No it's not. For example, the Nazi Party is a Socialist party.
  9. Coming late to the question....I would say no advancement possible beyond the degree of glory classification one achieves. The Second Law of Thermodynamics prevents it. There is no more available energy from the Atonement and entropy sets in. Either one breaks the barrier of relativity in the Judgement, or not at all and one's progress becomes asymptotic.
  10. Porn addiction, marriage, and divorce

    Yep. I tend to agree with this view and approach. Of course the question always is, is it the correct view and approach? Am looking for something in this approach that is in opposition to Church doctrine or policy but I don't see anything. I forget where it is in the podcast and you may have stopped listening before reaching it, but she also does talk about the issue of a non-Church guided resolution of the issue where that is THE approach one partner wants to take or is used to, and the other partner sees no issue with being more independent from the Church on resolving this matter.
  11. Jana Reiss - New Tithing Study

    Quite serious, yes. The difference is, as opposed to your view, I am in complete harmony with the doctrine...oh wait...you don't believe the LDS Church even has doctrine, right?
  12. Jana Reiss - New Tithing Study

    I just look at how Conservative it is. Conservatism is an accurate reflection of LDS doctrine and in that case, the more Conservative an administration is, the less worried I am about the personal corruption of politicians.
  13. Porn addiction, marriage, and divorce

    You guys might be interested in listening to the various podcasts involving Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife who specializes in sexuality issues for LDS women and couples. She deals with this subject in more than one podcast (not the only subject in most podcasts), the following is just one of them (porn issue starts at about 4:15): http://rationalfaiths.com/100-ask-mormon-sex-therapist-part-14/
  14. Jana Reiss - New Tithing Study

    Here's how I do it: 1) If we are being governed by a Left wing administration, I pay on net because I consider my tax dollars to have been stolen. 2) If we are being governed by a Right wing administration that has reduced taxes and the size of the welfare state, I pay tithing on gross. This could of course explain why millennials have been paying on net recently. If true, we hope that will change shortly.
  15. Song removed from Young Women's curriculum

    I think it's a step backwards, as per the Law of Moses, that people are somehow sensitive to the use of the term 'white', or the use of any color for that matter, because they can't parse the context..
