They say I’m not Christian? I’m indifferent…


The headline here is revealing. So I’ve been reading yet another set of press articles, where “journalists” interview a Baptist pastor about the “Mormon” faith? (Deep breath.) Anyhow, there have been about a billion blog posts, where Mormons argue that

Women in The Priesthood


Now and again I hear someone ask when women will receive the Priesthood, which I spell with a capital P to denote that I mean the Priesthood expounded in the D&C as a whole package, including all the covenants. The

Misconceptions, Testimony etc.


[Edited for some glaring grammatical mistakes, and begging for your understanding regarding the remaining ones.] I’ve been thinking–and of course reading–about the so-called shaken faith thing. What I’m about to say, is given without documentation, just some personal observation. Look

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

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

Hobosexuality


Let me say first off that I have not participated in any political campaign for or against same-sex marriage in any legislation. Likely that is because it hasn’t really come up as an issue where I vote.

I define “hobosexuality” as wandering from partner to partner. Something that is almost the norm to a very large group of the population.

I also would like to plead for sane reasoning from all sides (remember the Lord inviting Job to “reason with” him?). By shouting past each other we can not come to any constructive results, but only create bad blood.

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.

Speaking Up!


I once read a good tag line from someone, so good that I remember it word for word: “In the process of childproofing our world we may neglect the more important duty of worldproofing our children.” Let’s speak up — at home, and especially at home, or wherever we have people around them, let’s speak up and let them know of our testimony.

The Church Condemned


How the whole Church came to be under condemnation. Why the Book of Mormon is so important.

Falling Forward

Day by day, step by step, I become a little more unbroken. And though sometimes I fall…I’m forever falling forward.
