Re: If you don't like change, find another church - Bednar

And one more addition, this is why I say that Joseph Smith, with Joseph Smith's mentality back in those days, would NOT be able to run TODAY's Church, nor would Russell Nelson be able to run the Church in Joseph Smith's day. Each prophet was necessary in that specific time period. Joseph Smith woul...

Re: The Book of Enoch (Ethiopian canon) + NT, Doctrine & Covenants, POGP etc

My suggestion is that if you are curious about Enoch, just jump in and read the book and save reading the commentaries for after. There is danger of not hearing the still small voice if one's thoughts have already been influenced by someone else's opinion, more so if we respect the other's opinion ...

Re: If you don't like change, find another church - Bednar

Embrace change It seems like their goal is for smaller congregations. If that's the change they want, I think they're already starting to see it. Now watch them crank it up to 11.

I turned off the video after four minutes. I've been listening to this mantra about constant change for a few decades now and I just could not bear to hear it again.

Re: The Book of Enoch (Ethiopian canon) + NT, Doctrine & Covenants, POGP etc

https://gospelworthdyingfor.com/enochs-influence-on-the-new-testament/ According to bible scholar Robert Henry Charles, Enoch has had more influence on the New Testament than any other so-called apocryphal or pseudepigraphal work. This makes one wonder why we have been warned to stay away from the w...

Re: If you don't like change, find another church - Bednar

I hate the way that change is now continually presented as if it's something positive. After all, Bednar and the GAs should know that themselves as they have "changed" from young men to creakier, crankier older models.

Re: There is no covid restriction in any country regarding missionaries

In some ways, it’s definitely easier sneaking in - at least if there are reliable connections, documents etc. US Immigration does seem to treat foreigners as if guilty until proven innocent - even before 9-11.

Re: Upon this rock I will build my assembly

It's interesting to work out where some of these things originate from. "Craig" is quite a common name in Scotland. It is an old Celtic word for a rock and may well be a doublet of "Peter" even though most people aren't aware of that. "Charles/Karl", "Adam" a...
