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

Rarely has a thread or poster inspired so much navel gazing amongst the denizens of LDSFF. Truly a remarkable event.

Thanks Everyone!

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this forum who has put up with me over the years. This forum and its many wonderful participants have pushed my thinking, rounded out my testimony, and driven me to examine what I believe and why I believe it. It has connected me with life long friends and ...

Re: Special witness

I really dislike language like this. It’s so flowery yet vague and unmeaning. It feels extremely fake. It’s why even talks all about Jesus given in conference ring so hollow to me. They might be all about Jesus but give very little indication that they know Jesus 1st hand. On the plus side, at leas...

Re: Temple Recommend Question Number 7

The church is not honest or transparent at all and we should be interviewing them instead. Also people need to stop putting their faith in objects. Garments, temples, tithing, temple recommends, etc. They associate their salvation with these things and it’s not healthy but superstitious. FWIW, the ...

Re: Loud laughter

My favorite sacrament moment happened when I was probably 16 or 17 and we had a new member of the bishopric conducting. He stands up to kick off the meeting by announcing: “Brethren and sisters, let’s all turn in our hymnals to #177, “Tis Sweet to Sing the Mattress Love.” My siblings and I just bust...

Re: Trump's Nov 15 Announcement Thread

I think he believes they won't dare indict him if he's a candidate. The first thought that came to me was how much cash Trump can raise as a candidate. Doesn’t matter if he wins - it’s the next big business opportunity, and he is given a free pass to spend it all on himself or funnel it to wherever...

Defense against invasion 2. Make sure that none of our rights are violated. Everything else is delega...

So, either the LDS Church has no actual Apostles or they epically failed at their divine mandate during the past few years.
