  1. Tone can be difficult to convey when writing. It is a mouthful. But, as Bluebell mentioned earlier, I personally get asked what church I belong to very infrequently. No point in doing something if you don't believe in it.
  2. Tax-exempt corporations of the LDS Church include the Corporation of the Presiding Bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,[132] a corporation sole which was organized in 1916 under the laws of the state of Utah to acquire, hold, and dispose of real property; the Corporation of the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,[133] which was established in 1923 in Utah to receive and manage money and church donations; and Intellectual Reserve, Inc., which was incorporated in 1997 to hold the church's copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property.[134
  3. Are those the only two choices? Kind of seems like you are looking down on people who are trying to follow President Nelson.
  4. "Three Purposes of Church Membership Restrictions or Withdrawal Help protect others Help a person access the redeeming power of Jesus Christ through repentance Protect the integrity of the Church" "Restricting or withdrawing a person’s membership is not intended to punish. Rather, these actions are sometimes necessary to help a person repent and experience a change of heart. They also give a person time to prepare spiritually to renew and keep his or her covenants again." https://www.c
  5. The CDC has recently changed their guidance regarding surfaces. COVID-19 spreads less commonly through contact with contaminated surfaces Respiratory droplets can also land on surfaces and objects. It is possible that a person could get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. Spread from touching surfaces is not thought to be a common way that COVID-19 spreads https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/how-covid-spreads.html
  6. True. But the ones you did find would be highly motivated.
  7. I recall reading a short story years ago about the legal system of a fictional society. In this story, at the conclusion of a trial, the losing attorney was executed.
  8. I wonder if anyone filed suit against Joseph during the 7 fat years in Egypt. Personally, I find it a blessing to pay tithing. I can't set out any specific blessings I've received, other than the joy of knowing that a portion of my earnings is returned to the Lord to do His work. 10% seems like a small thing compared to what the Savior has done for me. It's saddening to see someone who has so lost themselves in the proverbial mists of darkness.
  9. Fremont Island is owned by the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire, & State Lands with a conservation easement held by the Nature Conservancy. I can't imagine any reason why the church would want to build a temple there. https://ffsl.utah.gov/fremont-island/
  10. I don't think the fact that Christ did not approve of the pharisees precludes the idea that Christ could approve of a church today. Because one group got it wrong doesn't mean another can't get it right.
  11. But you don't know that he didn't, do you. For some people the prophetic glass is half full, for others half empty.
  12. To this day I personally refuse to vote for Martin Van Buren.
  13. The cafeterias in the temples are inspected by the local health departments. Any violations found would need to be fixed or the cafeteria would risk being fined or shut down.
  14. That's interesting as I've felt the opposite. I find I pay more attention to a live person than a film. With the films I find I'm trying not to go to sleep.
