  1. Mormon Stories has a new podcast where they interview the co-hosts of Hidden True Crime podcast about Daybell and Vallow. M.
  2. Yes, Joseph Smith's beliefs in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost did indeed evolve over the years. The Lectures on Faith description of the Godhead compared to how the Godhead is described in The COJCOLDS website is quite different. I don't know for sure if Joseph Smith ever used the exact words of "separate beings" but the LDS Church's own website uses those words for describing the Godhead. M.
  3. If the CofC believe in the Trinity, then they believe that the Father and Son are distinct persons. JS's first vision usually describes the Father and Son are seperate beings. Any Trinitarian would not describe the Father and Son as "beings", because in the Trinity there is only one being and that is God. Therefore the Father and Son are distinct "persons". M.
  4. Why do you think that ALL Protestants think the Catholic Church is false? I'm Protestant and I don't think the Catholic Church is false. In fact I am very impressed with how articulate Catholics are in discussing theology. Protestant and Catholics do agree with the doctrine of the Trinity. There are other beliefs that we do not share, but they are inconsequential with the bigger picture of God and our relationship with him. M.
  5. Even if the barley was used (by Coors) to make beer, it doesn't go against your own scripture that says that it is fine if barley is used "for mild drink". Your leaders may preach against the use of barley for mild drink (aka beer), but your scriptures don't. M.
  6. They were protesting an amino acid? I tease, I actually had to look up the word "aspartate". You probably meant "Apartheid". 😁 M.
  7. I listen to that podcast. M.
  8. I retired 5 years ago and got interested in gardening. Garden Answer is my inspiration. https://youtube.com/c/gardenanswer M.
  9. This! As a non-LDS person, this is how I see members are taught to treat their mother in heaven. Once you have attained your physical body, Father in heaven wants you to have no contact with your mother anymore. All attention is for him only. M.
  10. Kate Beckinsale played Emma in a TV movie, which I really liked. M.
  11. I also recommend Sense and Sensibility. Jane Austen created great characters and the movie does a good job showing them. The actress Harriet Walter is also in this movie and the more I see her the more I like her. She stars in Belgravia, which is a period piece TV series, that is quite good. I also prefer the Pride and Prejudice mini-series than the movie. M.
  12. IMO, Lindsay Hansen Park is an expert in the history of polygamy concerning the LDS Church. She has a podcast called Year of Polygamy. https://www.yearofpolygamy.com/archive/listen-to-the-episodes-in-order/ M.
  13. She's not just of Blossom fame but also The Big Bang Theory fame and now her new show Call Me Kat. 😊 M.
  14. This can also apply if the Father is the one to leave and gives permission for the step father to adopt and be sealed to the children. M.
  15. Do you have a source or reference to back this up? M.
  16. Loosed? Children will remain sealed to their parents even if the sealing between the parents is cancelled. Not sure if a parent is excommunicated though; but I'm going to guess that the child/parent sealing will remain. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/new-era/2015/08/to-the-point/if-my-parents-were-sealed-in-the-temple-and-then-got-divorced-which-one-am-i-sealed-to?lang=eng M.
  17. I highly recommend the animated film Coco. I learned about this movie from my granddaughter (who was 2 and a half years old at the time ☺). It is about a boy named Miguel who loves music but his family has forbidden music, because they believe that Miguel's great-great grandfather abandoned the family in pursuit of a musical career. The family is about to celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and at the same time Miguel goes on a interesting adventure that involves his dead family members. It is such a wondeful movie. I love it. M.
  18. I'm going to give my 2 cents even though I'm a non-member. ☺ The divorced man who was sealed to his ex-wife can apply for a sealing clearance and sealing cancellation. But since he is a man his first sealing does not need to be cancelled for him to be sealed to a 2nd woman. But he does need to get his 2nd sealing approved via the sealing clearance. Once he has this approval, he and his 2nd wife can be sealed together and then their twins can be sealed to them; but the man and woman must be sealed first before any children are sealed to them. Since this woman (man's 2nd wife) has never been sealed before she has no extra steps to take. If she wants her children from her first marriage to be sealed to her 2nd husband, I believe she needs to get permission from the children's father to do so. ETA: Just want to add that these twins would not automatically be seen as sealed to the man and his first marriage because children follow the mother for the very fact that women can be only sealed to one living man at a time. This would make it easier to keep track of who is sealed to whom in a family setting. M.
  19. I have to agree with this. He knows he talks too much in interviews because his audience has told him so. It's hard to know if it's just a habit that's hard to break or if he just likes the sound of his own voice. M.
  20. Yes, but God in the trinitarian sense is the "one and only" divine being. M.
  21. I'm going to have to say, based on your statement above, that your understanding has missed the mark. In understanding the Trinity, the words "being" and "person" are not synonyms. In the Trinity, all "persons" of the Trinity are indeed distinct from each other, but they are one "being", because there is only one God. That is where the term "3 in 1" comes from. Three "persons" in one "being". M.
