Re: Sacrament meeting talks today

So God revels his kingdom to social media influencers, community organizers and career politicians first....then to large groups of their followers, then to local officials and education leaders, then to the prophet, and then it can be confirmed to me? So a "community activist" could rece...

Re: Sacrament meeting talks today

I appreciate your qualification here. Apparently, the "current" prophet can invalidate or transcend any previous prophet based upon the principle of continuing restoration. Though, can something actually be a restoration of a true principle if there is a need to change it down the road? I...

Re: Woke professors fired from BYU - I

I'll believe something is afoot when we hear of such things coming out of BYU-Provo. BYU-I is already much more conservative than Provo. This won't affect too many of the "woke" brethren. They'll just lie in the interview. Most of them already do. Besides, the brethren are much more "...

Re: The healing of Chloe Smith

About this time [May 1831] a young lady, by the name of Chloe Smith, being a member of the Church, was lying very low with a lingering fever, with a family who occupied one of the houses on the farm of Isaac Morley, in Kirtland. Many of the Church had visited and prayed with her, but all to no effe...

Certainly, they aren't mutually exclusive. Most definitely, it is possible to believe in both. 👍 Yes, the over-conflation of Mormonism with the Book of Mormon is undue. Yes.

Re: How to "Pluck Out the Prophets", the Lord's Way [Discussion]

The best scenario would be a united First Quorum of the Seventy holding a non-unified Q12 or QFP accountable (cf. D&C 107 --- unified lower quorums are equal in authority to un-unified higher ones). But that would require courage in the face of the ultra-unanimity that reigns supreme today. Sti...
