Eleven Years “Out”—How I Know You and Your Family WILL Be Okay

How the "Restored" Church of JC's "Volunteer" Saints Has Paid Its Top Dogs

steve benson Mar 2014

The notion that Mormon Inc.--from its earliest days--has supposedly been a "lay ministry" is a line that has been laid bare as a lie. Let's run the numbers (as well as run through some of the relevant historical facts) to show exactly how this scam has been spun.

How "recovered" are you? Is anyone 100% recovered?

Joy Mar. 2014

I seem to be stuck at about 80% recovered, but I can live with that. I was a BIC [born in the covenant], and had an abusive upbringing, in a GA [general authority] family. It took about 5 years for the anger to go away, but I still get angry at the Mormons' newest lies

The problem with the LDS Church

Boyd K Pecker Mar 2014

Let's forget about whitewashed history and bogus doctrines for a minute.

After reading many postings over several months, maybe the biggest problem with the Church is that the members solely exist to benefit the Church but the Church does very little to benefit the members. I

Harris Knew How to Embarrass: His Admission of Not Seeing the Gold Plates

steve benson Feb 2014

Martin Harris confessed that he didn't actually, really or literally see the Book of Mormon gold plates (and, as we shall see, that's not the only "Witness" problem).

But let's start (and ultimately end) with the fact that what Harris finally admitted to was this: Instead of "seeing" the gold plates with his actual, physical eyes, he just got a peek at them with his "spiritual eyes."

The Book of Mormon Jesus! I found something that reached a Mormon spouse.

fundamentard Mar 2014

If you have a true believing spouse as I do you might have already discovered that the only way to get their attention is to work from within their paradigm. They simply will not listen to outside sources with the same respect or reverence.

That said, The thing that has gotten her attention the most has been me pointing out how the Book of Mormon Jesus slaughtered millions of people in America immediately after completing his great work of love salvation and rescue.

All are welcome on RfM. Just curious though, what draws never-mo's here?

lenina Mar. 2014

Are you avid anti-mormons who find satisfaction in assisting ex-mo's along the path?

Are you spouses/loved ones of TBMs [Mormons]?

Help! My TBM [Mormon] bro sent me the latest essay

PapaKen Feb. 2014

He's saying he wants to know what I think about the "like god" essay, and as he put it, the eternal future of our family.

Oh. I get it now . . . you don't GET your own planet . . .

baura Feb. 2014

You don't GET your own planet, you MAKE your own planet.

All you get is the do-it-yourself kit. So they don't hand you
an already made planet and say, "enjoy yourself," they give you
raw materials and you have to organize them into a planet
yourself.

Trying to save my family with logic.

roslyn Feb. 2014

Yes I have raised by BIC [born in the covenant] children in the church so the blame ultimately lays on me, but right now I am trying to free them.

Stake Conference: Don't even Look at anything that makes you doubt.

mixedmessages Feb. 2014

My daughter went up to the heart of Utah to visit some friends this weekend. She went to stake conference with a friend, and I asked her what they spoke on. She said the speaker was adamant about NOT looking at anything, anything at all that makes you doubt.

Find reasonableness in apologies.

Cheryl Feb. 2014

In my family no one was willing to be assumed imperfect because recriminations could be brutal. This attitude meant no one admitted fault or offered apologies.

Joseph Smith and Teenage Girls using LDS sources

In another thread, RfM poster "ness" states:

"Well, this is a new TBM explanation; There is no solid evidence that JS married other men's wives or children under 18 years old. . . .

"Heard this one before? Or is this TBM just totally wrapped up in his delusions? From what I gather, most TBMs accept that JS married other mens wives and young girls.
