    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    I've had a careful look and I think they're all a bunch of American tourists who happened to be in Sydney last week. You can tell by the absence of beer bottles.

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    It seems to be more than just finger wagging https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/latter-day-saint-charities-unicef-covid-19-response

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    It would seem that with their less than stringent observance of covid related medical advice requiring the temporary lessening of certain social liberties, such as lockdowns, mask wearing and social distancing, some Americans have transformed the old rallying cry of give me liberty or give me death into give me liberty and thereby death. There’s nothing wrong with that, choosing liberty is a valid choice to make. Except when it impacts on the ability of others to make the same choice. Which is what happens when someone dies because someone else has chosen the liberty of not wearing a mask or not following other covid related medical advice.

    BYU Hawaii - vaccine required

    I think that in purely pragmatic terms, there continues to be some truth in the idea that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Obviously there are some significant limits as to how far this concept can be extended, but I think it could be a useful starting point. I'm reminded of the useful alliance with the USSR during the second world war.
  6. Judging by the degree of division between the traditionalists and the reformists, I'm guessing that perhaps there was a mishap, whereby the massive missive missile misfired and missed its mark, thereby causing much miss ery and misunderstanding between the two groups.

    Praying to change someone's heart vs agency

    I suspect that the impact of such a prayer, if acted upon by divine powers, would be, at the most, nothing more than one influence on the subject's decision making process, and not an elmination or overthrow of their agency. Influence on a person's agency is not the same as a nullification of that agency.
  8. I'm guessing that this information from Rome to the churches abroad was contained in a missive that was mass ive.
  9. Did you mean to say a massive oversimplication?

    Endure to the end

    I'm thinking more about us. Is there no point at which we will no longer have to endure or is it effort and struggle forever?

    Endure to the end

    So would endure to the end and endure forever have basically the same meanings?

    Endure to the end

    The phrase "endure to the end" occurs 18 times in the scriptures, including at least once by Christ in Matthew 10. Today I found myself wondering, what is the end beyond which we no longer have to endure?
