Re: How to "Pluck Out the Prophets", the Lord's Way [Discussion]

The best scenario would be a united First Quorum of the Seventy holding a non-unified Q12 or QFP accountable (cf. D&C 107 --- unified lower quorums are equal in authority to un-unified higher ones). But that would require courage in the face of the ultra-unanimity that reigns supreme today. Sti...

Re: Why are there 15 apostles?

Joseph Smith's restoration under God's direction gave us the following quorums all being EQUAL in authority: 1. First Presidency 2. 12 apostles 3. The 70 4. Stake leadership The apostles and 70 had NO authority in stakes of Zion, and were meant to travel in the mission field. That was their jurisdi...

Re: The Tolerant and Inclusive Church

If I'm so deluded that I tell you to call me a woman, what good are you to my long-term or spiritual wellbeing if you're so equally corrupt as to acquiesce and call me a woman? As of this moment, there is no church with the courage and honesty to publicly stand by these principles, and that testifi...

Re: A Global Faith and Working on the Railroad - Unraveling One of the Most Interesting Threads To Appear On LDSFF

The tactics used by AGF were professional. I'm not at all convinced that anyone has "met" AGF, or that AGF's persona has anything to do with AGF the person. Linguistic analysis would reveal a lot. Don't have the time or the equipment to do that, though. Wasn't 'A Global Faith' the uncle, ...

Don’t worry, they’re supporting this agenda knowing that in a very short time the government will force them to marry gay couples and they will look innocent to the members. “Look we have to follow the laws of the land.” Exactly, mamabear!

I think brlenox was on to something. This is only a testament to D&C 112:20. It's interesting, though, that many are weighing heavily on Oliver Cowdery's quote despite him having apostatized from the Church. Not only that, but many attribute and accuse Oliver Cowdery to add to Joseph Smith's wo...

Re: Electricity in Zion?

Think of it in another way. A lot of the time we don't actually need electricity as much as we use it. For much of the day we don't need electric light and we don't need to watch television. I think this is the flipside... Zion may be a simpler society which makes use of technology more sparingly. ...
