  1. True, I can see it. I like to think that the person behind the billboard is an honest man looking for a spouse. I know that may not be the case, but I get annoyed when I see so many negative comments (on YouTube videos in particular) about This whole thing. From the interview I saw of the lady running it, it sounds like it’s legit and this guy really is genuine. But my feelings won’t be hurt if I find out I’m wrong.
  2. So you don’t believe there is any man behind the billboard? It’s all just a way to get this lady’s company up and going?
  3. I think this is fantastic! I imagine dating when you have that much money and success must be pretty difficult. Perhaps it is some Latter-day Saint celebrity?
  4. I won’t go into detail of the doctrine cause I just don’t want to, but to me, the teacher’s interpretation and explanation was grossly over simplified and missed a greater explanation that could lead to repentance. I would probably be incredibly annoyed by the ignorance of the comment had I been there. As far as correcting our teachers and leaders. I don’t know about you, but I am a member of the the Church of Jesus Christ, not the church of *insert leader name*. If anyone teaches false doctrine, it is our duty to correct it. Now of course respect is needed and there is multiple tactful ways of going about it. I would not want to do it out of spite, anger or frustration. Otherwise I too would be caught in sin. But yes... if my stake president teaches false doctrine and I can say something and pull up a direct reference from a direct church source, I will. And I will do it both unapologetically and respectfully.

    National Popular Vote -- Predictions

    Has anyone ever played with the idea of switching the voting style completely? Currently its voting via representatives and the majority wins. How would you react fine one of the the follow changes were made: 1) Switch to a tournament style voting system where we would vote for or everyone running, the top 10 move on to the next round of voting. From there the top 5, then top 3, then we vote for the top 2. 2) switch to a ranking type system. We all rank our top four picks and depending on where our pick Sit in the ranking, they get different amount of votes. Ie. Someone ranked his votes 1) Trump 2) Cruze 3) Sander 4) Hillary Trump gets 4 of my votes Cruze gets 3 Sanders gets 2 Hilary gets 1

    Dating FAQ

    You seem to be very spiritually mature and have confidence you will make the decision God is happy with. You may not have gotten an answer because the Prophets have already given direction on this. ”this warning comes with great emphasis. Do not take the chance of dating nonmembers, or members who are untrained and faithless. A girl may say, ‘Oh I do not intend to marry this person. It is just a “fun” date.’ But one cannot afford to take a chance on falling in love with someone who may never accept the gospel” (https://www.lds.org/study/manual/eternal-marriage-student-manual/dating-standards) This one is a great Q&A to read: https://www.lds.org/study/new-era/2001/07/q-and-a-questions-and-answers Don’t marry someone that isn’t a member. And don’t ever marry with the hope that they will one day be a member. Though that does happen some times, more often than not (at least in my experience) it’s the church member that ends up leaving the church and following their spouse.
  7. ”Our society prides itself in tolerance and acceptance. We denounce antisemitism (and rightly so!). We try to fight the rising tide of Islamophobia (and rightly so!).” When I first read this quote, I read it so fast that I thought it was being deliberately sarcastic... but it wasn’t. is it really tolerance if we are denouncing ideologies? I’m definitely not for hating on minority groups, but can we really say “our society is so tolerant.” And then list off things that we collectively denounce? I think here lies one of the biggest problems in the USA Today. Not that we collectively dislike hate groups, but that if I hate someone, I can peg them as a “Nazi” or “white supremacist ” and the freely attack them. In sorry, but tolerant is not the word to use here.

    Who Named the Book of Mormon?

    Ok how about this. We change the name to The Book of Nephi, Jacob Enos Jarom Omni Amaron Chemish Abinadom Amaleki Mormon Mosiah Alma Moroni Helaman and Nephi. Am at forgetting anyone?

    Who Named the Book of Mormon?

    Ether wrote the book of Ether just ad much as Mormon wrote the Book of Mormon. Unless of course you are suggesting Ether was alive both for the tower Babel and the collapse of the Jaredite people

    Who Named the Book of Mormon?

    Ether didn’t write the book of Ether. Omni didn’t write all the Book of Omni. Alma didn’t write the whole book of Alma.

    Who Named the Book of Mormon?

    You know we believe in more than one holy scripture right? So if you believe we need to change the Book of Mormon to align with the name of the church, we ought to rename all our other books too. We would find ourselves reading: The Book of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints in America (600bc - 400ad edition) The Book of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints in Eurasia (6000bc Edition) The Book of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints in Europe and Asia ( 0ad - 35ad edition) The doctrines and covenants of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint The Pearl of Great prices of the Church of Kesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Very silly indeed. The word “Bible” doesn’t misrepresent us. It’s the name of a book we read. Same as the Book of Mormon

    Looking beyond the Mark.

    I’ll back what is said above. there are different degrees of living the word of wisdom. Someone who is doing illegal drugs is breaking the word of wisdom. Additionally, if someone doesn’t take care of their body, and only eats junk food, they too are breaking the word of wisdom to a lesser degree. A person who takes care of their body is more spiritually alive than one who does not. It’s the same with the law of chastity. Someone having unclean thoughts is breaking the law of chastity. Though they may not need their recommend taken from them, they are spiritually dying while I’m the thought. As far as the quote in question, I would interpret that as meaning we are not supposed to watch TV on Sundays, play sports, or other recreational activities that may distract us from the spirit of the fast. I may be wrong, but I feel like removing sex with your spouse could be counter intuitive as that is a sacred act. But im also open to the possibility of being wrong
  13. Regardless of why they asked or how you feel when you are asked... you are still sinning and won’t qualify for the blessings of the gospel.

    MCU's new HERo

    Mmm... I completely agree with you
  15. Well... I imagine a bishop ant ask you to do anything immoral or to break any laws. And you can refuse to answer any question anyone asks you. but correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think the bishop has any direction on specific things not to ask. He can ask “Do you keep the law of chastity”. If you answer no, he can asks for specifics so that he knows what he needs to do to help you. remember a bishops duty is not to simply “manage” the ward on behalf of the prophet, the Bishop’s duty is shepherd the members he has stewardship over. And he needs to know how to help us. He can’t do that if he doesn’t know where the wounds are and how deep they are. for example, questions about the law of chastity tend to come up a lot in the news and by “unorthodox” members. Here is the situation. Breaking the law of chastity extends everywhere from thinking about a girl/guy, you are not married to, In Underwear, and all the way up to adultery, rape and incest. He needs to ask questions to find out where on the spectrum you are. So the bishop can ask whatever he deems necessary to find out where your wounds are.
