Niyr, you need to understand the difference between hearsay vs testimony.

Re: Recommendations for a greenhouse dehumidifier?

Love it! Maybe it would be perfect for citrus or other tropical plants. I would love to have a walipini or two, and would love to grow tropical plants in them - especially if I had some kind of walkway near the top to pick fruits/nuts from plants that are rather tall (like coconuts). Might be super...

Re: Another report of the church abusing the abused.

With that, we should also let due process do its thing and wait until we have all the information, because even then, that's not a guarantee that we have the real story. Ah, that’s why the church threatened to exx her before she even spoke publicly. And why she spoke with 17 different church leader...

The updated youth program only got rid of all the old programs and replaced it with an empty, but colorful pamphlet.
That's kind of a good recap of the church in general. :)

Re: Another report of the church abusing the abused.

The fact that most of the "letter" is obscured is suspicious to me. It's a photo collage... it's not like she's presenting her case in court. I'm curious to see if she finishes her book and/or her documentary video. So am I. I suspect the truth is nowhere near as agregious as is being pre...

Very interesting.

Also, I’m not sure this woman expected her face/post to be shared outside of whatever group she shared this in. Just know that if you type it on the internet, it is open for anyone to see.

When she went public the area authority did some very heinous acts. Unfortunately this pattern of abusing the abused is not an anomaly. Wake up peo...

Re: Recommendations for a greenhouse dehumidifier?

Wait. I thought we were talking about greenhouse dehumidifiers. Did anyone find some good ones? That was a bit of a tangent. I'm finding that commercial dehumidifiers are very expensive. I think the best option for a greenhouse application is to find a dehumidifier that you like and then set it up ...

I hate to say it and I could be wrong. But if the perpetrator was some no-name councilor in a YM presidency, I don't think you would have seen such a "circle the wagons" response from the church. Makes me wonder if the accused was a general authority? I was just wondering the same thing, ...

Re: General Conference October 2022 - Rumors, Predictions, Live Thread, and Recap

Many of the early leaders tagged the Catholic Church as that great and abominable institution. It definitely meets the qualification for great, but not so much on the abominable side. This is something which IMO is still being revealed right now. Communism is but one arm of this. There are other pa...

Re: Another report of the church abusing the abused.

Why should I do research to back up her accusations? If she is waging a public campaign to persuade people to believe her, then she must produce the evidence and arguments to convince us. She didn't convince me. I read enough to see I am not interested. Too easy to make those accusations up (knowin...

Re: Recommendations for a greenhouse dehumidifier?

What do you mean “perhaps”? There is a reason Christ’s atonement is “infinite.” It is beyond any scope of time. Alma gives some good instruction to his son on the definition and reality of restoration (the one who chased after a harlot)...perhaps worth studying if you have to ask that... Define “in...

Re: Renlund uses words of Moroni to convince a man to take pharmaceuticals

So what do you believe constitutes “doctrine”? This is what I believe. My definition comes from what Nephi said (2 Nephi 31), according to what the Heavens told him, not from a dictionary. Note that one must press forward, feasting upon the words of Christ, and endure to the end, so there is more t...

The simple fact that she tried to speak publicly and the church exxed her for it should send up red flags all day long.
