  1. I believe the substance of Ty's opinion piece would of been substantially similar if it would have been made by a faithful member pre 1978 who was being denied the priesthood due to ancestry.
  2. So what is Mormon's Codex: An Ancient American Book?
  3. Are you familiar with The Miracle of Forgiveness. This book was required reading for missionaries when I served. From the book.
  4. Couldn't one take the BoM and create a historical textbook from the historical events and people within it? If so I would suggest that it is a religious book that contains within itself a historical textbook. If not, why not?
  5. I am a Mormon, I self identify as such. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Those claims do not contradict current or past prophetic edicts.
  6. There is something tangible in holding/owning a 200 year old book that may have been owned or used by either our ancestors or by those who founded Mormonism. Both link us to our past. One of my favorite books I own is a 1876 hardbound copy of The Juvenile Instructor that was at one time in the Church History library. I like to think BY may have held that very copy in his hands. I would get your PoGP appraised again and insure it for that value. I suspect it is worth a lot more than 10K.
  7. Before it was the MTC it was the LTM and those of us who went to the LTM at BYU first spent a week up in SCL during which we did a session at the SCL temple and were treated to a talk by an apostle, and in my case this was Legrand Richards. I don't remember much of the talk other than how much I enjoyed it, but I do remember at the end of it, Elder Richards remarked that he was often asked if the stories he told were true, to which he replied, "if they aren't they should be".
  8. So reasoning and logic are okay when it comes to Covid but not religion?
  9. BBC article on how bad science is being used to prop up the use of Ivermectin. Ivermectin: How false science created a Covid 'miracle' drug From the article.
  10. Why deal with the business end of an arrow when you can deflect from the real issue by criticizing the fletching color or shape?
  11. I will answer this question as soon as I can find my binoculars so I can locate your goal posts.
  12. I know, right? Obviously there is a large pool of unemployed ICU nurses out there just begging for jobs that the hospitals are just too lazy to hire.
  13. So many things wrong with this, not the least of which is the current prophet is a medical expert. What is wrong with the prophet passing along wise counsel regardless of its source? God forbid the leadership of the church should defer to medical experts. (HT I know this quote is not your words.)
  14. Obviously we grew up in different churches. As a missionary conducting baptismal interviews I asked those questions. I have sat through numerous tithing settlements where those question were discussed, and the WOW is part of every temple interview. I suspect that the problem is you and I use words so differently that communication is not possible.
