Re: Trying for a baby

I read this thread a while back and was frustrated with it but never commented. I was reminded of it today when I heard about this book: http://www.amazon.com/Shooting-Blanks-husbands-perspective-infertility-ebook/dp/B00EYMOF9W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389298234&sr=8-1&keywords=shooting+b...

Re: Forum Civility

Hello everyone! This is my first post here in ages! I was bored and wanted to check things out. It's funny I should come upon this thread at the top. It looks like the things that drove me away remain. I felt spiritually unsafe here. I will always remember the early days with fondness. I challenged ...

Re: Santa not welcome again at the Ward Christmas Party

I am coming out of retirement for today just to say thanks Darren! This thread has me waxing nostalgic. Santa is fun. Santa is awesome. And in case I was not clear - I really like Santa! We speak of, learn of, and pray to our Savior every day. Once a year Santa comes to remind us of the joy of givin...

Re: Is Denver Snuffer why people are questioning the church?

For those of you for whom reading Snuffer was a turning point, what was it that the words of our prophet lacked to encourage the same? What was different about his message? Here is an example ChelC. It is not about saving doctrine, but the principal is the same. I have never heard any of our leader...

Re: For anyone interested in our adoption process

Re: Is Denver Snuffer why people are questioning the church?

I'm confused about how this is seen as persecution. I have tried to be nothing but honest on this thread.

Re: Ideas, suggestions, regarding FORUM RULES?

We don't need new rules. We need enforcement of this one:
No apostate behavior. No evil speaking of the Lord's Anointed. Do not promote teachings that directly conflict with Church doctrine.

Re: Is Denver Snuffer why people are questioning the church?

Well, I can see that Snuffer IS probably a reason for the divide on the board. I want to be honest and yet I don't want everyone lynching me, ah but who cares. Lots of people here already hate me. This sounds like a cult following to me. He believes that we should question church leadership when thi...

Re: Why aren't Pitt Bull dogs Outlawed??

I don't think we should ban a breed, but it should have no special treatment. If it is snarling at me and acting in a threatening manner I should be able to shoot it BEFORE it's too late and it attacks my children or me.

He knows this is possible because ...

Re: Why aren't Pitt Bull dogs Outlawed??

I am sure there are some nice pit bulls out there, but I've yet to meet one. We have one (sometimes two) next door and I hate those dogs and wish they would get run over. That sounds very not Christian of me I'm sure, but that stupid dog has trapped me in my car, trapped another neighbor at his mail...

Again, I am no expert on Denver Snuffer. I have just recently become acquainted with his books and blog through this forum.

Re: Is Denver Snuffer why people are questioning the church?

So, if I have this right, Denver Snuffer claims to have had an experience (a vision, a dream, or what is the claim?) and he wants to preach repentance unto the people, but the criticism surrounds whether he is encouraging people to disregard church leaders and rely more heavily on the Spirit? Is tha...

I don't know much about Snuffer (almost nothing). I knkw he has writted books and has a blog. I don't know what any of his positions are. I have ignored threads about him, though I see his name brought up a lot. Since the forum has shifted toward more open contention with church leaders, I am wonder...
