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

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?

UK TV programme "Meet the Mormons" just finished . Not good for TSCC....

New Elder Field begins his mission, says his farewells, goes to Preston mission centre etc.
The new elder is Elder Field and is seen saying farewell to family going to the MTC and meeting his companion and getting his digs.

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?

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

Your Servant's Review of Miracle of Forgiveness

Olman may 2014

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.

The First Vision Essay is Dishonest

Sarony May 2014

The First Vision essay by the church is fundamentally dishonest because it omits two official, published accounts.
http://www.lds.org/topics/first-vision- ... s?lang=eng
These two accounts are by Oliver Cowdery in 1835 and Brigham Young in 1855.

Cowdery's account covers three critical elements that, taken together, are contrary to the 1838 version.
