  1. I hope it wasn't this skier! https://nypost.com/2022/09/28/hilaree-nelsons-body-found-after-going-missing-in-himalayas/
  2. I’m sorry, your question is too vague to give an answer. - Not reading the scriptures ever? - Not reading the scriptures once a week? - Not reading the scriptures every day? - Does reading a verse or two in Sunday School every week count? Everyone's take on “reading the scriptures” will be different, but generally speaking, I would say no it’s not a sin. Can you explain the difference between a sin and a transgression?
  3. You have a book about your mission experiences? I'd like to read that. I had some pretty "gnarly" experiences myself. Both good and bad.
  4. Yes. They probably think serving a mission is a priesthood duty, as they’ve said as much. No. I don’t believe neglecting a priesthood duty is a sin. There is a difference between a priesthood duty and a commandment. Collecting fast offerings is a priesthood duty, but I wouldn’t consider is a sin if I didn’t want to do it one month. Rejecting the words of the prophet is only a sin if you personally believe those words came from God. It’s up to us individually to decide if we believe the prophet is speaking as a prophet or as a man when the words are uttered.
  5. I’ve read the entire thread so, yes, I was caught up on the convo before I started talking. I just don’t think your point that serving missions was something encouraged but not a commandment until the early 70’s, then suddenly became a commandment and considered a sin if one didn’t serve, holds water. Sorry, not convinced. Not serving a mission is not sin. I served in the early eighties because I wanted to and thought it was the right thing for me at the time. Not because I thought I would be sinning if I didn’t.
  6. So, you're saying the First Presidency had 8 years to decide to serve a mission? Remember the Korean war only lasted 4 years.
  7. I don't think you'd have to look any further than LDSFF to find examples of Mormon White Christian fanatics.
