    Welcome!
    are there any specific things you are wanting to learn? If you are looking for general information, go ahead and download the “Gospel Library” app. That is the church’s official Publication app. Contains all the books of scripture, church magazines, lesson manuals, and a ton more.

    ...So I’m coming in late to this conversation...
    If I understand this correctly, someone was racist against a black man so they started destroying their own city and burning local stores where they were employed?

    My first and only interaction with a member of the RLDS went like this:
     
    RLDS Guy: are you elders??
    Elder Fether: We are!
    RLDS Guy: My wife is too!

    I think it's more "unknown" than difficult to grapple with. Most active LDS (most, not all) don't know anything about the RLDS that Smith III started. I was talking to someone about the "supreme directional control" controversy that Fredrick Smith created and this guy (someone who claimed to "love history") gave me a blank stare. He had no idea that the RLDS church even existed!

    Fether got a reaction from MormonGator in Will i have dificulties trying to find a girl at BYU if i didn't serve a mission ?   
    I played more video games than my roommates did by a large margin. I also had a better scholarship. 
    More video games = better grades

    The anti gaming attitude that so many people have comes from fear/ignorance/ego. It's a hobby, that simple. Some people game too much, but some people also camp too much, hunt too much, fish too much, work on their cars too much, shop too much...

    Fether got a reaction from Jane_Doe in Can Faith and Anxiety be complimentary attributes?   
    Interesting question!
    I think the answer to that is where the anxiety comes from. If the anxiety is stemmed from feelings of wanting to fit in, look good, keep up with the Jones’ or other similar aspects than no. Any kind of debilitating anxiety that needs help from therapists or medicine to be controlled is not linked to faith.
    But anxiety over the salvation of our fellow man or our need to repent is linked to faith, though should it get out of hand and we cannot function due to it, I would say we are straying into unhealthy territory.

    When reading an article today the topic of faith and anxiety in some cases being complimentary attributes was covered. What do you think? We are told to be anxiously engaged in a good cause. What cases is anxiety a strength when paired with faith?
    Jacob 1
    5. For because of faith and great anxiety, it truly had been made manifest unto us concerning our people, what things should happen unto them.
    6. And we also had many revelations, and the spirit of much prophecy; wherefore, we knew of Christ and his kingdom, which should come.

    It really comes down to what you believe. This really has become a political issue and not a health issue. when all is said and done, individual’s chosen sources of news will be spun to show they were correct.
    I, of course, take the conservative side and think this is all slightly concerning hullabaloo. But certainly not serious enough to take such drastic measures.
