Re: Nelson gives revelation that God loves Mormons more than others...

Wait a goldarn minute! Are you gals and guys saying that Dante Alighieri is not the last word on Christian theology? I'm at least as often wrong as right in matters of theology, but I have assumed (!) for a long time that the view of hell of the average Christian-in-the-street is as likely as not i...

Re: The 2022 Sampson Avard Golden Scepter Award

I hate to question the inimitable Dr Scratch here, but it feels we’re rewarding someone with this great honor largely because he may or may not be the author of an anti-heartlander blog. If the author is someone else should not this honor go to that person? Smoot and Robert Boylan have both said pu...

Re: Nelson gives revelation that God loves Mormons more than others...

According to Elder Nelson, Mormon god's love is conditional.
Elder Russell M. Nelson Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles wrote:While divine love can be called perfect, infinite, enduring, and universal, it cannot correctly be characterized as unconditional.

Re: Happy Sunday

Because, as a board participant, I’ve seen that grammar somewhere before …. ; ) I must say, I'm surprised that you're acting this way as a moderator. You're making feel like I need to defend myself. Is that how a moderator should make a board member feel? I'm trying not to be rude or cheeky, but th...

Re: 7 years sex abuse of a child covered up by LDS leaders

Most churches don’t claim that their ecclesiastical structure was set up as it is by God, personally and directly, and that keeping things run just that way is important to God. Even the Catholic Church is vaguer than Mormonism about just how God is supposed to guide the church on Earth. So other c...

Re: Following the Sprit and Echolocation

You appear to be claiming that being our father would make him care about us. Sorry - that simply makes no sense to me. It's almost as if you were unaware of bad fathers. Bad fathers don’t become God. Unless, of course, you’re referring to the Greek/Roman pantheon. If I were to believe in god it wo...

Re: Happy Sunday

The first big crack in my beliefs came at that time when I realised that I simply didn't miss going to church in the way I thought I would and should. I started searching for what could make me feel that way. My search eventually led me to the website of Richard Packham, a retired teacher & lawyer....

Re: DCP self-editing his thoughts on the priesthood ban

That said, though, I tend to resist confident assertions that the priesthood policy was, simply, the product of racism I get that he’s saying he has no other explanation but a policy designed to discriminate based on race is none other than the definition of racism. If the policy was not a product ...

Re: Sharing Spiritual Experiences

May I ask, please: 1. What is it about an experience that makes you classify it as a 'spiritual experience'? 2. How different do you think that experience might have been if you had been brought up in a family that practised a different religion? 3. How different do you think that experience might ...
