  1. It is not ridiculous, and the last time I checked, we are in a telestial world.
  2. Wealth is not the great equalizer. If everyone were wealthy, no one would be.
  3. I think the effort is concentrated on the appropriate exercise of priesthood keys. Fortunately, no one is two centuries old, so they aren't quite that accustomed to it. 🙂
  4. That's exactly what it is. The adults are essentially being asked to become more self-sufficient and quit clogging up the bishop's calendar with "issues." One can always hope.
  5. I don't say anything about the evils of the inquisition. Why would I? It happened centuries ago and has nothing to do with the modern Catholic Church.
  6. I would be surprised if the bishop takes this upon himself and addresses it. This is bigger than ward or even stake boundaries.
  7. Putting them all together in the prayer circle is...enlightening.
  8. As Nibley is reported to have said at a BYU commencement, "We are gathered here today, clothed in the robes of a false priesthood." 😄😄
  9. There is symbolism for it. It is associated with features on both the robe and the cap.
  10. It's one of my favorite talks, but Elder Bednar uses it in "Things As They Really Are." Satan does not have a body, and his eternal progress has been halted. Just as water flowing in a riverbed is stopped by a dam, so the adversary’s eternal progress is thwarted because he does not have a physical body. Because of his rebellion, Lucifer has denied himself all of the mortal blessings and experiences made possible through a tabernacle of flesh and bones. He cannot learn the lessons that only an embodied spirit can learn. He cannot marry or enjoy the blessings of procreation and family life. He cannot abide the reality of a literal and universal resurrection of all mankind. One of the potent scriptural meanings of the word damned is illustrated in his inability to continue developing and becoming like our Heavenly Father.
