  1. Not sure I want to try and answer this but here goes. The assumption is that any attraction one has for the same sex in this life that they are born with will be "corrected" at the resurrection and they will still have the opportunity to select a mate of the opposite sex during the millennium.
  2. Leaked photo from the Salt Lake missionary department. Seriously though, there are some practical criteria involved such as where are missionaries needed at the moment papers come in. A little has to do with a person's ability or experience with learning a different language. Or are there a lot coming home from a particular area or mission that need to be replaced. Beside that there are a couple good examples of how its done at the following site: How Are Missionaries Called?
  3. "Exempt" status was applied to such members a while ago, but now they are called full-tithe payers if they declare to the Bishop that they would pay if they had income.
  4. Yea, we have had this discussion before on what the definition of civil rights is and it doesn't get anywhere.
  5. I don't see any lies or distortions, just a plan on how to get members involved to help get the proposition passed.
  6. So I believe here are the actual "leaked" documents the original OP is about. Sorry if they have already been posted. Proposition 8 Proposition 8 Grassroots Program Grassroots Program Proposition 8 Volunteer Outline
  7. Or take it on faith, as is the case on most anything having to do with religion.
  8. Jonny like to stir up a hornets nest that doesn't have any hornets just to try and keep us wondering if something is wrong with the church. Remember his BREAKING NEWS: Major Article thread?
  9. If you are talking about the final judgment, I think it's mostly meant to be figurative. By the time we get to that point we will already have an idea what the final judgment will be based on our condition in the spirit world after we die, whether we came forth in the morning of the first resurrection or sometime later, and our position and activity on the earth during the millennium.
  10. New leak just in: LDSLeaks Reveals First Presidency’s Toothpaste Brand of Choice, Testimonies Crumbling Worldwide
  11. "Because of his sinless life, his genetic nature as the Only Begotten of the Father, and his willingness to drink the bitter cup of justice, the Savior was able to atone unconditionally for Adam and Eve’s transgression and for physical death and to atone conditionally for our personal sins." (Bruce C. Hafen) https://www.lds.org/liahona/1997/04/beauty-for-ashes-the-atonement-of-jesus-christ?lang=eng I see a lot of talks that say basically the same thing as what you want so it's hard to find the exact quote you are looking for.
  12. I hope you are not forgetting all the thousands of hours of relief efforts put in by church members who are not wearing the yellow shirts. There are most likely far more of those than the yellow shirted volunteers. But then how would you know they are church members?
  13. What I was referring to is Christ's relationship to the Jewish church, which Jews at the time believed was the church of God and run by holy people chosen by God. So are you saying He would be less active in the Jewish church today?. Yes I guess so.
  14. CFR and how many jobs outside the USA? especially in Latin America? With only 60 million dollars you can create 10,000 good paying jobs. Of course, but I don't think the church offers 10,000 senior software engineer jobs. How much does a Clerk,Sales for the church make? or a security guard? or a janitor? https://www.glassdoor.com/job-listing/clerk-sales-on-call-position-the-church-of-jesus-christ-of-latter-day-saints-JV_KO0,28_KE29,76.htm?jl=2314706650 Holy cow! Give it up already. The front page of the Glassdoor entry for the church that I provided a link to said "greater than 10,000 employees" I gave a short list of other types of jobs. The glassdoor listing had 22 pages of other varieties of jobs. All the salaries are similar to those in other companies for a similar position. If you want to see what all the salaries are just join the website and you can see them. A security guard is about $50,000 but of course not everyone is a security guard, right?
  15. Not only was He a missionary He was also actively setting up His church: "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:" (Eph 4: 11-12) "And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers," (1 Cor 12:28) Does that sound like someone who is inactive in the church? Aside from that it was different times, different circumstances than we have today.
