    COVID update

    A good ole greasy cheeseburger, MAGA hat, and apple pie should counter act any side effects
  2. Here is my opinion “Never do anything that could lead to sexual transgression. Treat others with respect, not as objects used to satisfy lustful and selfish desires. Before marriage, do not participate in passionate kissing” - For the Strength of Youth “The For the Strength of Youth pamphlet contains standards that, when followed carefully, will bring rich blessings and help us stay on the covenant path. Although it was written for the benefit of the youth, its standards do not expire when we leave the Young Men and Young Women programs. They apply to each of us all the time. A review of these standards may prompt other ways we can be more careful in our gospel living.” - Becky Craven, General Conference 2019
  3. It seems you have specific marriages you are referring to (Of course if you don’t that would be silly). What specific marriages between individuals do you have concern with?

    Poor Homeless Cougar

    Just another example of the white patriarchy white washing our media
  5. I’ve been going regularly for a couple months now. It’s been alright. Only a 4th of the ward meets together at the same time. I’m not particularly close to anyone, but it was really nice being back in such a sacred building once again. I definitely felt t or spirit of it when I first went back

    Alma 30:7-11

    A law that bans SSM. That would prevent LGBTQ marriages from occurring despite them not believing it is wrong.

    Alma 30:7-11

    I do, my question was based on whether we should vote in laws that forces others with differing moral views to live according to our beliefs (ie LGBTQ).

    How did we get the Book of Abraham?

    Where is the “A salamander whispered it to JSjr” option?

    Alma 30:7-11

    To specify my question, I want to focus on laws that Babylon and Zion disagree on. - extra marital sex - marijuana - sex between 16 year olds - gambling Shoukd we be seeking to make All these Illegal and punishable by a civil crime?

    Alma 30:7-11

    @Anddenex and anyone else who wishes to respond. Should we be for voting in laws that being upon civil punishment to anyone who commits any sin? That seems a lot like the law of Moses which we have gotten away from. Would you be in favor for laws that punish all extra-marital sex? Or laws that punish those that lie, or disrespect their parents? If not, how do we dictate what sins should also have civil punishments tied to them if we aren’t going to look to society morals as a whole?

    Stopping COVID

    I wasn’t trying to engage in an under or over report debate, Only sharing a ridiculous bit of info I came across...but since we are here, there are “scientists” on both sides of the debate. Andmy opinion on this whole Covid hullabaloo is based purely on my personal experience, COVID has had 0 effect in my life besides forced changes by the government. I gave a blessing to a father the other day whose entire household had Covid. Neither me nor the other brother that blessed with me got sick. In my area there are 300,000 people and currently only 6 hospitalized for Covid. This portion of the state has done next to nothing to prevent the “spread” I went to a missionary homecoming a couple weeks ago and there were 2-350 people in the chapel and only a handful had masks. Stores were closed for a week but after that everything was back to normal. Additionally, I work in a call center and we are currently focusing our effort in CA and NJ. We talk to hundreds of people every day across those states. I have spoken to 4 people who had relatives who died. Also had a neighbor and a distant cousin die. Every one of them were 85+ years old. That is my experience.

    Alma 30:7-11

    “there was no law against a man’s belief; for it was strictly contrary to the commands of God that there should be a law which should bring men on to unequal grounds ... Now if a man desired to serve God, it was his privilege; or rather, if he believed in God it was his privilege to serve him; but if he did not believe in him there was no law to punish him... But if he murdered he was punished unto death; and if he robbed he was also punished; and if he stole he was also punished; and if he committed adultery he was also punished; yea, for all this wickedness they were punished. For there was a law that men should be judged according to their crimes. Nevertheless, there was no law against a man’s belief; therefore, a man was punished only for the crimes which he had done; therefore all men were on equal grounds.” This section seemed to be referencing both the current law of the land as well as the laws of G*d. It seems that man can believe what they want but they are To be punished Civilly if their belief leads to actions that are contrary to G*d. Now to my question along with some context. I was debating with a friend of mine that bill in CA that “legalized pedophilia”. Now it doesn’t do that, far from it actually. But the reality of the bill is still not moral. It allows consensual sex between a 14-17 year old with someone that is less than 10 Years older than them. It is seeded in immorality that puts off the commandment of not committing adultery or doing anything like unto it. This law is based in different beliefs on morality, and there is no law of G*d that tells someone what they must believe. this is the same with LGBTQ rights and laws. If we live in a nation where many are on the LGBTQ spectrum and differing views on sexual morality, would it be against the laws of G*d to vote in laws that prevent others from living according to their belief? Or would it be against the laws of G*d to vote for laws that allow those of opposing belief to break commandments? Thoughts?

    Stopping COVID

    I was tested a few months ago and received a call letting me know I tested negative. Phone calls are (Or were at least) the standard practice. And it could be that my friend was lying, but I have no reason to believe that he was lying. if hospitals are really getting funding when they have more covid patients, I would not be surprised if there were some fabricated cases

    Stopping COVID

    Wanna hear something nuts. A friend of mine went to get tested for Covid. Filled all the paper work out and waited for his turn in an obscenely long kind. He eventually lost his patience and left. A week later he got a call from the testing center saying he tested positive for Covid. ill tell ya, these new testing kits are impressive

    The power and keys of ministry

    Probably for the same reason I am a young men’s advisor and my neighbor or is a gospel doctrine teacher. God wants us there so there we go.
