  1. I want to know how it's okay to call others you find abrasive "hateful", as if calling them hateful is any less abrasive than that which you find abrasive? Oh...wait...could it be I'm taking a generic principle as a personal attack? Is it, perhaps, unfair if I called that generic principle "hatefulness"?

    The Family Proclamation says gender is eternal. It doesn't say sex is (I'm not talking about "having" sex, I'm talking about being a sex). Though I personally doubt it, I can't see how it would be any more speculative than all the other speculation that seems to occur that the eternity of "gender" is something beyond sex organs, and that sex organs are a reflection of gender rather than the other way around, eternally speaking, and that thereby the quote could be correct and still in line with the Proclamation on the Family.

    Thank you random internet guy who's been anxiously engaged in promoting that the church teaches false doctrine.

    How does not knowing what the scriptures say about the necessity of evil contribute to the discussion at hand?

    I thought you were a master scriptorian.

    No one says that. I challenge you to find a single instance of a faithful, religious Latter-day Saint using that phrase as advice.

    Wheat and Tares and Other Gospel Verses

    Yes. But that isn't relevant. There are greater "rewards" given as set up by the plan of our Father in Heaven. "Rewards" that could not be achieved by our simply being humble, obedient, and repentant on our own. Really? So if I'm kind to my wife and I hope for (expect) a good marriage I'm not humble, obedient and repentant? If I work hard at my job and expect good pay and job security I'm prideful and disobedient? What does expectation of reward have to do with humility, obedience, and repentance?

    For what it's worth: I believe any who attain Exaltation will have, ultimately, done what is required to get there. Certainly that doesn't mean in this life, whereas one individual, born in the covenant, works at it their whole life, and another individual, born out of covenant, only finds the truth late in life, but embraces it fully. Regardless, of course it's just to reward the fastest runner with the fastest runner award regardless of whether that individual had to work hard to run fast or does so with ease. Sorry to step on your toes on this point, as I certainly support your intentions here, but I'm not sure the path your going down leads to the correct conclusion.

    Depends on what you mean by "ok"? I think a better question would be, is it smart to disagree with General Authorities? Or even better, is it wise to agree with general authorities? Or even, is it ever foolish to agree with general authorities? (Actually...let's be clear here...prophets and apostles anointed and authorized to determine doctrine. That does not apply to all "general authorities".) I still have to wonder though...why? Why would you disagree with general authorities on this matter? If and when I disagree with any given statement or any given idea by a general authority (which has happened, sure), I have a very good reason why. At least many who disagree with general authorities on some subjects, although misguided and not seeing an eternal perspective, have at least a semblance of a well meaning, compassionate, reason behind the thinking.

    Devil's advocate stance here: Being "teachable" by any old source, no matter how -- um -- sane or not -- isn't really what humility is all about. Being teachable by God, His ways and means, is closer to the reality. Frankly any time anyone states something that disagrees with me and then throws out "you aren't humble because you aren't teachable" is laughable. Done. Carry on.
