Re: Does RM Nelson just like the lime light more than most?

I actually get that same dark disturbing feeling when I read all the whining and complaining and critical remarks and accusatory posts made here on the LDSFF... It's strange that someone would willingly spend any time at all in a place (LDSFF) that gives them dark, disturbing feelings. We are couns...

Re: President Nelson visits New Zealand

Welcome to the LDSFF where no middle ground is ever to tolerated. What middle ground to you think should be tolerated here? (Btw I frequently take the middle ground on other topics). You think we should cover paintings of Jesus for Muslims to pray to another God? You think we should give them money...

Re: The Temple Endowment (Yes, this again) and hownit was supposedly "harmful"

There are two influences going on here. First of all, there are more women who are in control of how much money is paid in tithes, either because they are single, or the main breadwinner, or co-breadwinners in their marriages. If they feel harmed by the temple ceremony, they won't need to pay tithe...

Re: Can you concede this? Social Experiment.

I would say your focus may be off. Because the foundation of Christ is most certainly planted with keys and priesthood. Nowhere else is that available on earth than in the church. So, we should use the keys given us. Not focus on men and their inadequacies. You'll find it difficult to discuss with ...

Ammon wouldn't have denied the existence of Jesus Christ and "covered" any mention of him as he is supposed to be preaching of Christ to the Lamanites. I don't think anyone has denied the existence of Christ to appease the Muslims? If you have to exaggerate to prove a point then it's prob...

I have felt for some time that the Church is ramping up efforts with the Muslim faith.
You might be right. I was thinking the Jews are in the cross-hairs, maybe even the Catholics because of the Rome Temple and it being a so called hinge point.

The previous day we welcomed President Nelson to Australia, we did not expect, ask for, nor receive financial assistance. Islam is the Church of Lucifer.

Here's non-LDS author's take after stopping and interviewing people living in Utah in the 1860's: Polygamy is a recent feature in the Mormon religion, and was added by Brigham Young after Joseph Smith’s death. Before that, it was regarded as an “abomination.” This verse from the Mormon Bible occurs...
