  1. President Kimball called for greater works of art to be created by the latter day saints. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/ensign/1977/07/the-gospel-vision-of-the-arts?lang=eng "During one of our visits to Copenhagen, we were excited and inspired as we drank in the beauty of Thorvaldsen’s Christ and the Twelve Apostles. We wondered if anyone, anytime, could produce a greater masterpiece, and yet time may surprise the world. Can you see statues of the Lord, his prophets, and his disciples? There are many martyrs and prophets of the centuries who have never been so honored."
  2. I thought it was significant that for the first time in the entire history of the church, an apostle quoted from the 1832 first vision account in general conference. "Shall we Not go On in So Great a Cause?" Elder Ballard Sat morning April 2020. Any thoughts on the amalgamation of 4 accounts which Elder Ballard presented? How does it compare to the amalgamation presented in this new first vision video from 2017 https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/church/news/church-releases-new-ask-of-god-video-depicting-first-vision?lang=eng
  3. As today is good Friday, I watched a few videos about the crucifixion and read the different accounts in the gospels. The new Bertel Thorvaldsen symbol adopted as the official logo of the church depicts the resurrected Savior ministering to the people. The original statue includes the traditional 5 wounds of Christ, as Jesus said to Thomas, " Then he said to Thomas, Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” Members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that Jesus also has scars in his wr
  4. One thing I like about this article is it leaves open for both spiritual and natural and cites the scriptures that may have influenced Martin Harris. "When Martin Harris said that he had seen the angel and the plates with his "spiritual eyes" or with an "eye of faith" he may have simply been employing some scriptural language that he was familiar with." Ether 12:19 "19 And there were many whose faith was so exceedingly strong, even before Christ came, who could not be kept from within the veil, but truly saw with their eyes the things which they had beheld with an eye of faith,
  5. Do you think some changes to the handbook might be clarified during conference?
  6. My hope is that President Nelson will wear a rainbow tie this conference and clarify an expansive view of the James 2, "royal law"
  7. Here is a link to David Whitmers deseret news interview from 13-Aug 1878, where he described his vision of the sword of Laban, directors, plates on the table, etc. He explains that the angel buried the plates in a cave until "God will yet rise up a mighty one" https://m.imgur.com/fgvwjDe I think it's pretty cool that the jaredites were giants
  8. How do we search just the handbook? search function on the site seems to go everywhere without localization to the document you want?
  9. Kevin Utt will speak as a representative of BYU and the HCO, but who will provide training for bishops and other ecclesiastical leaders on these changes?
  10. urban dictionary definition 6. ? _ i have no idea - can an individual who identifies as queer on this board please help? 6. an identity used because the terms gay, lesbian, or bisexual are not sufficient for their inner feelings
  11. More great quotes from the Wilkinson talk: I have no idea what he means by "publicity to offenders" - is this a mug shot in the daily universe?
  12. Looks like from the 1965 Wilkinson devotional where he said homosexuals should "self deport" or leave the university voluntarily he was indeed fearful that they would "contaminate" the culture at the university. I looked up this 1965 talk and there are a lot of wild parts. A few excerpts:
  13. From the video the professor also was told form the honor code office that they will take a lot more measures to ensure Respect of lgbtq students. More strict measures against homophobic bullying and taunting - a push to becoming more Christlike.
  14. You could be right. It may have been more the action of the standards office not Wilkinson himself that began the security files log of suspected gay students. From Rocky O'Donavan's essay, "A Brief History of Homosexuality and Mormonism, 1840-1980":
  15. Didn't Wilkinson start the "report on your neighbor" spy network at byu? He was worried about underground communists roaming campus.
