First post and crisis of religious identity
J Atherton posted a topic in Introduce YourselfFirst posting ever. I shared this email with my sister. Also a university professor. Thank you for the warm welcome. Hey sis, Here are my deductions and boiled down notes from the last few days - a bit of a crisis of religious identity. I thought I would share with you my notes from the last couple of days. In going through this I realized that maybe this is something you can relate to. Honestly even more than that I feel like for whatever reason I understand something about you specifically that I hadn’t before. Like I’m realizing something you have realized and figured out way before I did. Love you! -jay You can righteously teach your children this principle. Church: It is a construct to share true principles. The failures are because of this- human beings act human when dealing with something as profound as a true principle There are examples of reformed Egyptian everywhere. Because there are examples of the attempted forgery everywhere. There IS truth that the attempted characters are found other places. Of course they are because they were copied in the first place. The church is the product of a sustained cultural phenomenon that could have gone in favor of any number of successors. Variations that contain true principles. Be a truth seeker of principles, service, and good. My search is just to find my faith and I think Mormonism can be a good vehicle for people to live faith. To live principles. I don’t know about the doctrine or absolute truths. Safe guards of absolute truth and authority and current conclusions: -can’t have faith and fear -Have to pay for privileges -Prophets can’t tell lies or they will be taken away. -Grace is sufficient. It is necessary. It is not after all I can do. It is already given if Christ is to be believed in context -Time does exist. Even with layered existence and multiple realities there is a before god as god and an after. As described to me in the church. -Praying for the described feeling over and over will eventually yield that result. That is learned behavior? This is not a negative tool if practiced responsibly. -Don’t monetize these teachings because we have.
Something About Me
JoeOlivas posted a topic in Introduce YourselfI just recently moved from Southern Utah to South East Idaho to become part of an Executive Team for a thriving company. Originally from Los Angeles, CA., I was fortunate to meet and fall in love with a wonderful girl whom I married. Laura and I have 3 amazing children who are a very big part of our lives. Over the last several years Laura and I have become even more deliberate about teaching our children who they are, who they can become and who God knows them to be. This is no small thing, as we are faced with many challenges from day-to-day which constantly fight against that which we know to be true. However, it is in how we choose to view these challenges that makes all of the difference in the world, for ourselves, our children and for those around us. I firmly believe that productive goals and ambitions are motivating and important in a person’s life and we as a family set them together. It is important to note that in order to set and reach any worthwhile endeavor we must first establish our pattern, a guide of principles that allows us to remain on course. One of my greatest passions is understanding and protecting principles of freedom and liberty. This is not only essential to individual growth and prosperity, but also vital in building any successful community however large or small. I have found through personal experience that adhering to principles, life is no longer left to chance. The Founding Fathers knew and understood these principles and a dear friend of mine and I have outlined them quite simply as The 12 Principles of Liberty. My wife and I continue to educate our children and those around us on these principles in how we live, continually striving each day to improve. As an avid reader and student of the Founding Fathers, I have come to love and appreciates the freedoms, liberties and opportunities that are available to all men and women. In addition to religious and civic responsibilities throughout my history, I have sought to cultivate a strong “Can Do, Will Do” attitude. I firmly hold to the belief that every individual is important and within them contain great achievement once their unique abilities are unlocked and developed. It is this philosophy and mindset that drives us as a family to stretch yet even further. The Lord has blessed me with specific talents and unique abilities which are undeniably creative in their nature. As an artist, designer, teacher, songwriter, and poet, it’s my life experiences I leverage which foster an environment for creative thinking and innovation. This affords the wonderful opportunity to connect with individuals from all walks of life for the sole purpose of lifting those around us over whom we have influence. I’ve been fortunate to accomplish many things in my life. But my greatest accomplishment was being smart enough to recognize that my future bride would change my life for the better, and now I just work to live worthy of the blessing she truly is. There is so much more I could say about my family and the incredible gift they are, and through my posts I am sure you will come to understand why I feel the way I do, but I hope this gives you a bit of insight into who I am.
