    New movie - Ephraim's Rescue

    I can't wait to watch it! Do they make they movies in Hollywood?
  2. Anger is the display of temper. The Lord cautioned His Saints to control their anger (Matt. 5:22). Neither parent nor child should abuse others in the family. In the scriptures, anger often has the figurative image of fire (2 Ne. 15:25; D&C 1:13). And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell, Gen. 4:5. The Lord is slow to anger, and of great mercy, Ps. 145:8. A soft answer turneth away wrath, Prov. 15:1. I know that not everyone out there is Mormon, and they don't have the same standards as we do. Today, some dude just bullied me because...well racism I guess that's what it was based on all the name calling he called me and all the rude names he said about me. I waited for him to punch me first so I could counter it. That way, I could call it "Counter offense, self defense", and I would be in less trouble with the police and I can explain that to a lawyer, not that I've gotten in trouble before but I know how the law works. I really provoked my bully to hit me. I guess he wanted to but didn't because many people were around. But I am guessing this kind of stuff will happen again sometime, in the future. I don't wanna give in to anger, I have experience in MMA and Muay Boran. We've always been told not to fight outside the ring. There was a quote from a shaolin monk "The way of kung-fu is to avoid all conflicts". Jesus said to be merciful and love your neighbor? But what should I do when fists start flying? What should I do when he attempts to hit me first? Should I just be passive and run? If I run, next time he will call me a coward, I've seen this happen on Netflix. Where the bully chases the bullied. I always ask myself, what would Jesus do? But I'm not Jesus. Should I defend myself? I couldn't find any doctrine about self-defense...but I know that the Nephites did what they had to do...

    Is getting pregnant from a sperm donor not allowed in the church?

    Her age and fertility has a lot to do with it. She's getting older and she might reach the age of "not being able to bear children". She worries too much about this and goes to the other option....artifical insemination. She doesn't consider adoption...She wants kids on her own...her own kid from her womb.

    Have you heard about MGTOW? These are one of the reasons LDS men go MGTOW too.
  5. I just wanted to make sure that what I'm feeling is not just emotions....but actually the Spirit.
  6. Care to share a top ten artists lists? or a top ten song list? :):)😍
  7. Can church songs and christian rock/music bring the spirit to you? I was listening to LDS radio on Pandora...and I had a warm feeling of happiness because of the lyrics and melody. The song is: Peace in Christ by McKenna Hixson. I'm wondering if there's a scriptural reference to this? I'm wondering if what I felt was from the Holy Spirit?! I'm just curious! Thank you !

    She's a criminal defense lawyer and holds an associates in Psychology. Sometimes she has too much stuff to do. I'll try to get her involved in this. I highly doubt it she has time for herself though.

    Is getting pregnant from a sperm donor not allowed in the church?

    Yes, but she hasn't been married. What should I say to her when she says: "Guys don't like her and no one wants to marry her". ..Like I try to understand her...and she has so many self-esteem issues because of this. I do admit she's not attractive. I know it's rude but it's just reality. Dating these days is hard. Very hard. She has tried and tried and tried so many times. She prayed for a good husband. I think it's wrong....but that might be her only choice?
  15. My friend, a very close friend, has given up on guys. She's already 34 years old. She wants to inseminate herself from a sperm donor. She's also LDS. I'm very very very against this thing, and I care about her, I've known her for such a looooong time. We are debating over this. I've checked LDS.org, and now I'm looking for advice here. There's absolutely nothing about this on LDS.org. I should check with the Bishop, but first I should check here. What are your thoughts about this?
