General Conference October 2022 - Saturday Live Thread and Recap

Post by Subcomandante »

The conference has started, President Henry B. Eyring directing.

Remarks:

Looks like a full house for choir, no masks present. A LOT of empty seating in the upper rows.

No masks because everyone attending conference was required to have a negative Covid test

President Oaks is apparently speaking first. Unusual.

My Master:

“But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing”

My next prophet:

“Hey everyone, look at us, we gave almost a billion dollars to help the needy!”

What am I missing?

Will the big Ps prophesy today at conference? No, but they will probably change some policies and fool many into thinking that it’s prophesying.
No but the first Big P to speak is bragging about how much money ("almost one Billion!") we donated to the poor last year.

The members do deserve to know how their money is being spent. Clot shots for the poor?

This is actually quite a sum of money compared with previous years.

President Oaks was telling people that people don't have to be directed by the Church in order to do good works to help other people.

Mamabear wrote: October 1st, 2022, 6:32 am “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time PAST unto the fathers by the PROPHETS,
Hath in these LAST DAYS SPOKEN UNTO US BY HIS SON, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;” Hebrews 1:1-2
And yet prophets continued to be called, and prophesied, during the time of the New Testament.
Christ desires to speak to all people in these last days directly and that all would prophesy.

One can/could consider himself a prophet because he had prophecies.

“If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 14:37

“Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.”
1 Corinthians 14:1

“I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied.” 1 Corinthians 14:5

This follows the words of Moses, “And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!”
Numbers 11:29

Can you imagine this language today given by the 12? “I would that all would prophesy.”
No, they would never utter such a thing.
There are many prophets who are not called by a church, who commune with Christ. This is the Lord’s way.
Having the ability to declare Jesus as your Savior is exhibiting the spirit of prophecy (Rev 19:10). Does it make someone a leader of an entire body of believers? Hardly. These are small-p prophets, people that have stewardship over their own families. The big-P prophets, those are the ones God calls upon to warn all the people.
There’s literally no such thing as small-p and big-p prophets. Hebrew doesn’t even have capital letters for starters. I know that you’re using a figure of speech, but the idea is still ridiculous.

Leaders of the Church are just leaders. That is the distinction that should be made. Their duty is to seek and exercise the gifts of prophecy, and what have you, but this is no more than any of us are called to do.

If you care about knowing where your money is going, donate it directly to the poor yourself. Giving it to the church and turning a blind eye is not the best way to help those in need.

from Oaks comments, I wouldn't be surprised at all if the members aren't "called upon" to help all those "inside and outside" the church with their substance aka food storage/preps. Delivered to the UN for redistribution in order to deplete the self-sustaining strength of the members. "We're all in this tragedy together". I say this in regards to a future event.

Elder Uchtdorf telling the youth not to expect Christ to justify your mistakes or your attitudes, but will work with them to change them.

No one is begging the church for numbers. They didn't reveal anything just now we didn't already know. They gave less than 1% of what they have to the poor and the needy while spending much much more building temples, investing in Babylon, building luxury shopping malls, etc.

Ah, I see. I’m not worried about what dissatisfied members say. My post is about what my Master taught, vs. what President Oaks did. Any thoughts about that?

And this is exactly why the pro-LGBTQ Mormons teach that being gay is not a mistake, and there is no need to change anything about their orientation, while telling us homophobes that our attitudes are the things that need to change.
