Re: The Coming Tests, Trials, and Glory

I miss Bruce R. and sure miss when these tests were "coming" and "at our door" Now that they are in the house desecrating and burning it down I can't say the romanticism of heroic battles is how I imagined. Imagine if you will how lousey a story LOTR would have been if Lord Elron...

Re: APOSTLE OR ARISTOCRAT? THE CIRCULATION OF THE 'RECORD OF THE LIFE OF BEVERLY BROUGH CAMPBELL' BEGINS... NOW.

I am sure one greater could say this better but noone is, so I will venture to the forbidden and do my best. There have been many women and wormtongues who fancy themselves "The power behind the Throne." It is even a popular feminist trope in media and sadly even among those who claim the ...

Usually avoid this muckraking type stuff. Any organization with humans will have dirt to be dug up. There is a pattern of something deeper and more concerning here to me. Outside of our church, the Left has been crowbarring her as one of their own for years. They manipulate what little info is there...

Re: Ward called to repentance for not doing enough missionary work. Anyone else?

“The intensity of our desire to share the gospel is a great indicator of the extent of our personal conversion.” — Dallin H. Oaks I've loved this quote for a long time and think it's true. I think the reason people aren't sharing the gospel is that an ever growing number of members are only convert...

Re: There is a sickness in the church

I think that sickness is idolatry. As many of you know, I'm a physician and in a stake presidency. Was recently involved in the release of a bishopric after 5 years of service and the calling of a new bishopric. We spent about an hour with the old bishopric and asked them what they each considered ...

Good thing Lehi did not wait for Laban and the other leaders to tell him how to save his family.

Even with the best of leaders, relying on macro leaders for micro direction is a bad plan.
