Re: Utah land for sale?

As a hunter I think this is bad, I would like it to remain in in the federal gov't's hands. As someone who believes in the sacred nature of animals and abhors hunting I believe that hunting should be banned on public land. I also believe that if you choose to hunt you should be required to kill you...

Re: Covenant Path Finally Explained 🤷🏼‍♂️

From the Church website we get a clear explanation of what "The Covenant Path" means. Quoted from https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/inspiration/youve-probably-heard-the-phrase-covenant-path-before?lang=eng " So what does “covenant path” mean? It means that our promises, paired with...

Re: All is well in Zion

In a recent General Conference, Elder Dieter Uchtdorf said, “My dear friends, if the Savior were standing here today, He would express His endless love for you, His complete confidence in you. He would tell you that you can do this. “You can build a joyful, happy life because Jesus Christ is your s...

Re: Is God not talking to us here?

By ANY conceivable measuring stick possible Julie Green is a false prophet. The LDS Church is doing a lot better in the prophecy business than this huckster, by far, and it is not even close. Oh, like when they told us God gave us a vaccine... that actually killed and maimed the people of this eart...

Re: How do you leave the forum?

No joke, the last two sets of missionaries role played with us in the exact way I mentioned and asked if they could come back to do the same. I told them no, but if they wanted to come back and share a scripture, or their testimony of Christ, I would love that. The set of missionaries before that s...

Re: “upwardthought” YouTube Channel

Just can’t keep from recommending Rob Smith’s YouTube channel. He’s putting out a lot of great stuff (though, his books are better imo), and the content is just so incredibly spiritually satisfying. I wrote about his channel on my blog: https://thewordofthelorduntome.blogspot.com/2022/10/all-temple...

I have done my best to be civil, and you are relentless in being divisive and keeping your blinders on. I don't have the time and energy to devote to this fruitless pursuit.

Instead of shifting the focus, why not address what I've written... how seriously messed up it is that the poor pay their 10% to the church, the Church invests their money in major babylonian corporations, and then the church gives a greater percentage of that interest back to the rich instead of b...

Right... because yeah it's not techniqually tithing that was used for city creek, it was the interest from the invested tithing money. Not the same thing at all.

I like the part where they say they have no paid clergy.

But shhhhhh... it's only paid out from their investments from the tithes of the saints.

Is less than 1% a "little"? BTW, they are doing damage control for hoarding money. They are doing this for the PR, not to care for the poor. If they wanted to care for the saints they would teach an honest tithe per the principles taught in the BoM. The church has a lot of other legitimat...
