In God’s plan for the happiness and eternal progression of His children, the blessings of His priesthood are equally available to men and women. Only men are ordained to serve in priesthood offices. All service in the Church has equal merit in the eyes of God. We express profound gratitude for the millions of Latter-day Saint women and men who willingly and effectively serve God and His children. Because of their faith and service, they have discovered that the Church is a place of spiritual nourishment and growth.

We understand that from time to time Church members will have questions about Church doctrine, history, or practice. Members are always free to ask such questions and earnestly seek greater understanding. We feel special concern, however, for members who distance themselves from Church doctrine or practice and, by advocacy, encourage others to follow them.

Simply asking questions has never constituted apostasy. Apostasy is repeatedly acting in clear, open, and deliberate public opposition to the Church or its faithful leaders, or persisting, after receiving counsel, in teaching false doctrine.

All we declare has been officially labeled, “Phooey”

June 25th, 2014 by Zen

I expect, that imagining that the World at large to understand beyond what is popular at the moment, is an exercise in vanity, if not a serious work out.

The 10th circuit court of appeals has decided we have a constitutionally protected right to Same sex marriage, and all our reasons against it are “tepid”.

In the Country of the Naked Emperors

June 25th, 2014 by G.

For someone who uses common sense and the experience of their own observations and experience, it is weird (to put in mildly) to be in a position where you are required to argue, persuade, provide ‘evidence’ for, and mount elaborate arguments to support what anybody can see for themselves.

Statutory rape

June 24th, 2014 by Vader

Most of the other jokes about this are even worse.

So why link such vulgar material at our genteel blog? Well, we’re observers of culture and cultural decadence, and the fact that the fertility idols of the ancient world have made a comeback seems noteworthy.

Except, given the setting, perhaps these are better described as infertility idols.

The Formula for Christian Life

June 24th, 2014 by G.

There is no formula for Christian life – extremes are corrupt, and the middle ground is slippery.

Drones

June 23rd, 2014 by Zen

-don-mccullough

 

Far be it from me to preach a prosperity gospel with golden idols for everyone, righteousness should yield a minimum of national success. But if we can’t even compete with the corrupt and backwards regimes, then that should be a trumpet in our ears. If we are defeated in soccer/fütbol at the Worldcup, not one will be greatly surprised. If Japan or Korea makes a better smart phone, we are not shocked.

But if we don’t lead the world in pizza delivery, then something just isn’t right.  Russia has pizza delivery drones and we can’t even manage the redtape. America invented and perfected pizza as we know it. But here we are with Russia doing what we have only talked about.

I hate feeling like we are falling behind.

That and I am hungry for some supreme with extra cheese.

He Makes Families

June 23rd, 2014 by G.

A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.

God setteth the solitary in families

Psalms 68:5-6

The family is the last of God’s works of creation. He takes chaotic elements and organizes them into wholes of which He is a part.

The bachelors, the spinsters, the widowed, they are not forgotten. His hand will reach them yet.
