As you can see by the comments, there are many people who need to be released from this ridiculous mind control. Dan Johnson admin April 4th, at 8: If you wish to teach that masturbation abstinence is ok, even though it is known to have benefits , then you are free to do this.

​3 Habits That Could Make You Lose Your Testimony Without Realizing It

Comments It was a blistering hot day in NYC. I was 23 and had graduated from BYU two months earlier. Now I was nearing the end of my summer internship at a very fast-paced advertising agency. From my apartment window, I looked out over the Hudson River where a city that shimmered with opportunity lay before me.

Please help them to walk in paths of truth and righteousness and keep them from the evils of the world. Bless them that they shall be happy at times and serious at times, that they may enjoy life and drink of its fulness. Bless them that they may walk acceptably before Thee as Thy cherished sons and daughters. It was the most ennobling endowment He could give His daughters, a sacred trust that gave women an unparalleled role in helping His children keep their second estate.

Never has there been a greater need for righteous mothers—mothers who bless their children with a sense of safety, security and confidence about the future, mothers who teach their children where to find peace and truth and that the power of Jesus Christ is always stronger than the power of the adversary. Every time we build the faith or reinforce the nobility of a young woman or man, every time we love or lead anyone even one small step along the path, we are true to our endowment and calling as mothers and in the process we build the kingdom of God.

April General Conference Note: He tests us by allowing us to be challenged. He assures us that He will not suffer us to be tempted beyond our ability to withstand. But we must understand that great challenges make great men. The but if nots can become remarkable blessings.

10 of the most indispensable LDS talks ever given

On the morning of September 21st Phil Giraldi was fired over the phone by The American Conservative , where he had been a regular contributor for fourteen years. Buchanan was vilified and denounced as an anti-Semite by many of the same people who are now similarly attacking Giraldi. Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment industries, meaning that no one will hear about or from the offending party ever again.

Most recently, some pundits, including myself, have been warning of an impending war with Iran. To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed with fear over Iranian hegemony, and, of course, from Israel itself.

But what makes the war engine run is provided by American Jews who have taken upon themselves the onerous task of starting a war with a country that does not conceivably threaten the United States.

Fascinating story. Thanks to the Bordens for sharing and to Kurt for putting it together. From a leadership perspective, there was a lot to learn there about being an effective leader for someone who is not living gospel standards.

Oaks, Quorum of the 12 Apostles. Critics’ Arguments Latter-day Saints are repeatedly encouraged to rely on a witness of the spirit i. Holy Ghost to personally authenticate the truthfulness of the origins and content of the Book of Mormon. Given constant encouragement from general and local leaders of reliance on supernatural manifestations a testimony over testable claims, it is not surprising that many faithful Latter-Day Saints seem unfazed by empirical evidence or the lack of it contradicting Book of Mormon claims, whether the research is conducted by Mormon or non-Mormon archaeologists and historians.

Of even greater concern is that many faithful LDS members, by virtue of the admonition of their leaders mentioned above , are not even aware of the perplexing problems contained in the Book of Mormon text. As a result, they are usually unable to effectively dialogue with critics without resorting to faith-based claims in a testimony which carry no authoritative weight for the many dedicated experts in the fields of archaeology, history, linguistics, genetics, etc.

This page details some problems that arise by accepting the Church-sanctioned teachings of the origin and content of the BOM as well as responses to those problems from the LDS Church, apologists and devout members. Anachronisms An anachronism is when writing contains something from a future time period which couldn’t realistically be in the time period they’ve written it into. Count the clock,” with Cassius replying, “The clock has stricken three. Shakespeare took something familiar to him, a clock that strikes the hours, and placed it in his story before such clocks existed.

Because the play is fictional, it is seen as simply an error on Shakespeare’s part.

Beginnings[ edit ] Adherents believe that Joseph Smith was called to be a modern-day prophet through, among other events, a visitation from God the Father and Jesus Christ.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the growing disparity between the numbers of single Mormon men and single Mormon women. But amidst all the hand-wringing about what this means for dating and marriage, there are larger implications for what it means for Mormonism, and I had quite a few follow-up questions. So I tracked down sociologist Rick Phillips , who with Ryan Cragun has authored the forthcoming study on the sex ratio disparity among Utah Mormons. Both scholars are past presidents of the Mormon Social Science Association.

And this is especially true in Utah as compared to the rest of the nation. Conservative denominations in the United States tend to have more women than men, so the sex ratio imbalance in Mormonism is not particularly surprising, even if it is rather severe. What is surprising is the regional concentration of this imbalance. We began to investigate sex ratios in the church when we compared data from two large censuses of religious bodies, one conducted in and the other in The data show that between these two censuses, the proportion of self-identified Latter-day Saints that were female increased rather dramatically … but only in Utah.

Outside Utah and Mormon strongholds in the Intermountain West, sex ratios within the church remained stable, and were closer to parity than in Utah. Your research suggests that the increasingly imbalanced sex ratio among Utah Mormons is like the canary in the proverbial coal mine: You attribute the gender gap to a growing trend of apostasy among Mormon men.

There has been a general secularizing trend in the United States for the past 25 years.

More Mormon men are leaving the LDS Church, say researchers — but especially in Utah

Links Member beliefs Most Latter-day Saints are fully aware that black men were excluded from the priesthood from its inception till It was largely taught in the Church that up through the s blacks were denied the priesthood because they were from the lineage of Cain, who was cursed with a black skin after killing his brother Abel. People were born black because they were less valiant in the pre-existence.

The ban on blacks holding the priesthood was reversed due to revelation received by the prophet Spencer W. Kimball in and was not due to the civil rights movement. Prospective converts, even black ones, are not told about the prior priesthood ban on blacks.

Unfortunately, passing around a portable microphone in the Marriott Center is virtually impossible today, so I invited two local young single adult stake presidents and several BYU professors to solicit questions in advance for my consideration in preparing my talk for you. In the end, I was surprised how many questions you have. I received of them! They covered a variety of topics, including life at BYU, dating, doctrine, marriage, revelation, seeking perfection, and showing love to others.

I wish I could respond to every question. However, reviewing the questions has been a blessing to me because it gave me another window through which to consider the issues and challenges you face. As we begin to consider some of your questions, it is important to remember that I am a General Authority, but that does not make me an authority in general! My calling and life experiences allow me to respond to certain types of questions.

There are other types of questions that require an expert in a specific subject matter. This is exactly what I do when I need an answer to such questions:
