About faith crises


Last weekend I was asked whether I had ever had a crisis of faith. This wasn’t the first time, but I had to ask for some room to define, to interpret the question. I will write about my chain of

Rise (and fall) of rational Theology


When I mentioned King James Bible in an earlier post, I deliberately left out the turmoil of Continental Europe. The 17th century brought on wars that have somewhat falsely been called religious wars, but are generally the 30 years war.

Crisis, Choice and Commitment


So a theme I’ve been reading about lately is the crisis of faith phenomena in Mormon circles. It seems that there are endless numbers of people who 1) have been brought up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day

Oh, Mother!


So, I am being “inspired” to write this partially (a big part, I must confess) by an article/podcast discussion about the issue at MormonMatters.org. Not plagiarizing, but just tossing out some thoughts to consider. I encourage you to get familiar

Women in The Priesthood

About Orthodoxies


I wanted to digress more into this when writing the science/religion post, so I decided to do a post on it,  a short one. Because it doesn’t really require that much room to say, that I don’t see that Orthodoxy

What does Christmas mean to me?


First, a disclaimer; while I don’t claim to represent the Church or the official standpoint of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (what I usually incorrectly call “LDS Church”), I consider myself a faithful Latter-day Saint, and I

Exercising Faith, Revisited Again


So, it is time to write about it again. I actually read my previous Faith posts — some of which may be difficult to discern, because they don’t come right out and say, “this is about Faith!” Well, now, this

About Trying To Serve God And Mammon Or the Gospel of Wealth


Part religious pondering, part political polemic, this is an indictment of the Gospel of Wealth. Not party politics, though! But if you are interested, I take a bit crusty look at the culture that insinuates that if you’re poor or sick, it’s because you’ve earned it (see Mosiah 4:16-23).

Just What Is Moral Courage Part 2


Just in the case that someone got the wrong impression from my first edition of this. I’m presenting things in a little bit different manner, but essentially I’m saying the same thing: There are times when we need to go against the social pressure if we wish to obey the commands of our conscience.
