Lost my boyfriend to Mormonism

enia Oct. 2014

Hey. I don't really know if I can write about this here, I mean, if this is a right place for it. My (now ex) boyfriend started to hang out with Mormons and is now planning to convert. Since you guys probably know about this much much more and have seen different people converting, staying in church, leaving from church etc, I wondered that maybe if I give you a detailed description of the situation and of him

Mormon-US Sen. Orrin Hatch's Dispatch on "Religious Freedom" (invoking D. Oaks)

steve benson Oct. 2914

Before I get started, I should mention that I recently got a phone call at my work office, out of the blue, from Hatch, who was dailing me up from Provo, Utah, where he informed me he that had been hanging out at BYU with some of his 80-plus-year-old buddies.

Shocked at Oct. 2014 General Conference

Already Gone Oct. 2014

Nearly every single talk was on staying in the church, following the prophet, how leaders are inspired, and how they know best for you and how they are not out of touch or bigoted.

Family Must Be Feeling It - Oct 2014 Conference

baneberry Oct. 2014

Several family members, children and parents, must have been inspired by conference and are using various approaches to talk to us. One is a walk down memory lane and how wonderful it used to be when we all went to conference together. Another is a guilt trip about how drinking coffee creates a horrible impression upon their children and they don't feel safe in our home.

Missions -- the best two years? seriously?

hopefulhusband Aug. 2014

I served a mission 20 years ago in Poland. This was a couple years after the fall of the Berlin wall and Eastern Europe was only beginning to open up to mormons. While I had some amazing un-mormon experiences, and saw some amazing historical sites, my mission could be explained as: 2 wasted years.

Not sure how to respond... wife wants to attend christian church

ZSH Aug. 2014

So my wife posed a question last night that left me unsure of how I might proceed in the future... so I thought I'd come here for some advise. We left TSCC [this so called church] a year ago and have never been happier.

Living an authentic life

foggy Aug 2014

For the most part each piece of my life is pretty good right now, but I've discovered that the big underlying problem I have is one that probably many of you face as well.

In order to keep what on the surface seems to be a 'good' relationship with my family and DH's born-again-christian family, I pretty much have to keep my opinions to myself

Am I a simpleton for thinking that the preamble of the Book of Abraham is intended to mean what it says?

Mormon Church Knew & Taught Its Racist Doctrines

steve benson Aug. 2014

In point of fact, it did so for extended periods of time, promulgating them as essentially fully-formed and -flowing from the mouth of God himself, in regard to both the Mormon Church's official anti-Black priesthood ban and its official position against interracial marriage.

The Most Striking Thing about All the New Essays...

Tal Bachman Jul 2014

It is striking how the new essays so consistently concede what "anti-Mormons" (otherwise known as "people who tell the truth") have been saying for decades. As a close read, and a bit of thinking, will confirm, the essays essentially concede that Mormonism cannot be what it claims.

The signs of the times

Keith Vaught Jul 2014

I grew up in the Mormon church during the 60s and 70s. One of the big gospel topics used to be the second coming, which our local leaders and teachers frequently claimed would happen around the year 2000. How many of you remember these "signs of the times" that were taught in classrooms and from the pulpit?

I sometimes read RfM posters who worry about *our cause.*

Cheryl Jul 2014

I don't have a cause. Do you? Does RfM have a unified cause we must all follow? I don't think so.

Why I Lost My Testimony (a Response to Timid, Testimony-Losing Trolls) ...

steve benson Jul 2014

Cowardly posters with deep inner personal doubts about the "truth" claims of the Mormon Church on occasion come to this board under false pretenses (including sneaking in under my own name because they're too chicken and insecure to actually reveal their own).

So, let's set the record straight.

When did you REALLY start questioning?

Elder Berry Jul 2014

So discounting shelving at what age did you start suspecting LDS Inc. wasn't a good truth speaker for your reality?

" The relationship between those fragments and the text we have today is largely a matter of conjecture."

What a clucking joke.

Reading a book is like an interaction with a person. I have been around my wife for 33 years and have grown steadily in depth of respect and fondness. I never tire of being around her.
