Re: A prophecy or astute prediction from Sept 2014

What will be your line in the sand? How much corruption will you tolerate? When will you stand up to the Church and say enough is enough, you have gone astray? Or do you have no line in the sand? Will you stand with certain men no matter how corrupt they are as long as they hold a title? Could Isai...

Re: How close are we till His return?

I see no reason why the same principle would not be at play with a patriarch. If you want to go deeper.. sure, the average patriarch is probably more spiritual than the average male in the Church which means, given my opinion, there would be a higher percentage of legitimate blessings given by the ...

Re: How close are we till His return?

I also think it's a possibility that some patriarchal blessings(I won't pretend to know how many) aren't actual prophecy, just like many priesthood blessings have no effect, there is no power behind it. I think there is a lot less than you think without "power". This person is not one of ...

Re: How close are we till His return?

I have struggled with the Second Coming issue for many years, but I have a few basic things figured out, and I need to dispel a few myths here. My kids' patriarchal blessings (who are Generation Z and Millennials) clearly state that they will die and go to the spirit world. The implication of course...

Re: Chad Daybell, Julie Rowe, and Anti-Mormons

Speculate as you please. I am not all that interested in the subject. I just have seen enough false accusations and false stuff in my own family to last 10 lifetimes. People in my family were affected/victimized by the false accusations originating from Barbara Snow trying to brainwash people into f...

Re: Chad Daybell, Julie Rowe, and Anti-Mormons

Oh, and the people that want custody don't have to be in Daybell's family. They can be in his new wife's family, and not like their religious beliefs, and want the kids brought up differently.

Re: Chad Daybell, Julie Rowe, and Anti-Mormons

Who do I believe? It doesn't matter who I believe. I have no stake in this. A family member apparently knows more than me. I presume he knows what he is talking about and the cops don't have Daybell's side to know who else wants the kids. I don't care but I know that someone isn't telling the truth ...

Re: Chad Daybell, Julie Rowe, and Anti-Mormons

Here is a bit of hearsay/rumor I got recently. I have no clue if there is any basis. I know someone who claims to be a family member of Daybell (a cousin). He says that the motivation behind the media frenzy is a custody dispute and Daybell and the new wife are in hiding with the children to keep th...

Is it also a sin, in your mind, to vaccinate a child who has adverse reactions to vaccines and dies? Nice try. The minuscule potential of that is far outweighed by the benefits.

I think the anti-Vaxer movement is bunk, and believe it is actually a sin not to have your children vaccinated and you end up being the cause of their death or if they are incapacitated in some terrible way by preventable disease. A sin?? Interesting. Maybe you can explain your thought process a bi...

You might be right on it being a sin NOT to vaccinate your kids. But honestly, I know quite a few unvaccinated people since childhood who are perfectly healthy. Though what's ironic is they weren't exposed to many these lethal diseases BECAUSE of all the other kids that were vaccinated. And the vac...
