You still sticking with that story?
yes.
By allowing millions of members to continue paying like that, that is exactly what they’re teaching.

Re: Tithing

As a bishop, I had a blind convert who lived on about $750 per month. After all of her expenses were paid (she was completely reliant on the government for income), she had about $20 left per month. I told her that tithing paid on that $20 was all that was expected. I very well may have been wrong ...

Re: Tithing

Tithing should be paid on increase. So she pays on what's left after her medical bills. If there's nothing left she pays nothing but can still in effect claim to be a tithe payer. That makes sense, but I don't think that is what she was taught (she is a newish member). Do you know any scriptures th...

Re: Church takes scripture out of context to promote...wokeness.

And how do you know he’s talking to the church when he uses the word “Gentiles”?

Verse 29 accuses them of priestcrafts in the middle of a string of verses listing their crimes.

Secular organizations don’t operate in priestcrafts.

Re: When did Christ’s NT church apostatize?

It started before Jesus had died. With what event and persons? Jesus repeatedly condemned certain tendencies in his sermons, so it is obvious it was already happening then. I see this early on in his three year mission. Jesus periodically corrected his apostles too. Judas Iscariot was an obvious ap...

You should find and study all the official apologies from the church to learn what must happen before they issue one. Let us know how it goes. I cant remember ever seeing or hearing of one. And you won't. Recall that Dallin H Oaks stated that the church doesn't apologize. You know, like repentance....

Maybe the clot shot was the fiery serpent and anyone who took that instead of relying on Christ needs to look up and be healed.

Short answer: No. Long answer: The Lord will not hold you accountable for the decisions of leaders about how to spend the Lord's money.
