  1. Divine Love Is Conditional

    It took me a while to understand the full meaning of that talk. But I realized that although God's love is "perfect, infinite, and universal for all mankind", He is not going to give everyone eternal life just because they want it and because He loves them. This higher form of divine love where God gives us all He has is dependent on our becoming the kind of person that can abide exaltation in the celestial Kingdom. That is the condition.
  2. Nope. The number of years he has been an Apostle.
  3. New First Presidency

    Statement from Elder Uchtdorf: Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles who served as President Thomas S. Monson's counselor in the First Presidency, offered words of support to the Church's new First Presidency: President Russell M. Nelson and his counselors, President Dallin H. Oaks and President Henry B. Eyring. In a note on his Facebook profile, Elder Uchtdorf said: “It was a joy to participate in this morning’s announcement of the new First Presidency. I love and sustain President Russell M. Nelson, President Dallin H. Oaks, and President Henry B. Eyring. I can assure you, the Lord Himself is at the head of His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “The Lord has provided a divine plan so that His Church is always led by prophets, seers, and revelators. I embrace the opportunity to associate with my Brethren in the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. I love them and look forward to serving with them as we — along with you — strive to serve the Lord.” Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf offers support to newly called Church leaders
  4. Has anyone noticed

    Knowledge of this might not be so common for the younger members. If you are 22 years old there has only been one change in the presidency, besides this time.
  5. New First Presidency

    They all go by the title of "Elder" and so will Elder Uchtdorf. Since he is no longer in the presidency he would no longer be called "president"
  6. A little more info: President Russell M. Nelson to introduce new LDS Church leadership in live broadcast Tuesday "In an unprecedented move, President Russell M. Nelson, president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, will introduce the new leadership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Tuesday during a live broadcast at 9 a.m. Mountain Standard Time."
  7. Ex-Mormons launch FaithLeaks

    Yep. They were about to start leaking transcripts from General Conference.
  8. Ryan McKnight and Ethan Dodge are at it again. They are expanding their leaks to other religions now. Ex-Mormons launch FaithLeaks to root out abuse and corruption in churches "A new website called FaithLeaks aims to bring transparency to the workings of religious congregations and denominations by publishing documents and data sets provided by anonymous sources. The web portal was founded by two former Mormons who have previously gained access to documents shedding light on the inner workings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its position on controversial issues such as gay marriage. This week, the two founders — Ryan McKnight and Ethan Dodge — published a trove of 33 letters and documents detailing an internal investigation of alleged sexual abuse within a congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. The pair hopes to entice others to submit documents that shed light on three main areas: congregational finances, church policies and procedures and documents related to sex abuse settlements."
  9. God, the prophet and slavery

    Actually that should be the Gospel is perfect; not the people or the church. The church is governed by imperfect people, therefore the church as an organization cannot be perfect; this can include some policies or church leader opinions that may not be so perfect, although we hope that most are inspired by God.
  10. Thomas S Monson cars

    They did post a Disclaimer: "The Thomas S Monson Net Worth details are being posted/updated after conducting reasonable research. It is being reiterated that the Thomas S Monson Net Worth details mentioned here are only ‘estimates’ which may or may not be the reality. While utmost care is taken by FinApp during the compilation of Thomas S Monson Net Worth information to ensure that the estimated net worth is closer to the reality, FinApp shall not assume any liability or responsibility for the outcome of decision(s) taken as a result of any reliance placed in this post." The question might be asked is were those cars actually bought by him, given to him from the church, or just purchased by the church for whichever president happens to currently hold the position and will be used by the next president?
  11. President Russel M Nelson?

    Here just a few specifics related to your list: He was awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Utah, the Heart of Gold Award from the American Heart Association, a citation for International Service from the American Heart Association, and the Golden Plate Award from the American Academy of Achievement. He has also been awarded honorary professorships from three universities in the People’s Republic of China. He has served as president of the Society for Vascular Surgery, a director of the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, chairman of the Council on Cardiovascular Surgery for the American Heart Association, and president of the Utah State Medical Association. He is listed in Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in America, and Who’s Who in Religion. He worked on a team that made medical history: After three challenging years, they developed the first machine that performed the functions of a patient’s heart and lungs during open-heart surgery. He served a two-year term of medical duty in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. In 1972 he performed heart surgery on Elder Spencer W. Kimball. Following the surgery he received a personal witness that his patient would someday become President of the Church.
  12. The fact that they called it an obituary was the most insulting aspect of it. If it were just an opinion article there wouldn't have been as much a problem with it.
  13. And it's the same people spewing the same venom in every Trib article. I think they just copy and paste their comments from one article to the other, regardless of the subject. You would think they would get tired of doing this over and over.
  14. Being a scoutmaster is the only calling I have ever refused. At the time they asked me I was married with a kid, going to college full-time and then working until 11:00PM every night at the hospital after school. Not only did I not have time for it we had no money to buy all the equipment and uniform I would have to get. The only thing I Liked about scouting as a kid was the week long scout camps we went to each year.
