    Personal Feelings Towards Temple Work

    I'm going to be as open and honest towards this as I possibly can, holding nothing back that I'm feeling. For some of you reading this, you may very well see me as a wishy-washy person. Maybe so, but it's my hopes that my wishy-washiness is more so a sign of humility and...

    Confirmation From God That The Endowment Is Ungodly?!

    So today I was writing this out to a Mormon I know, and something confusing happened as I wrote it. So I'll just show you what I wrote, and then explain why it's confusing to me: "I'm sorry for mocking what is sacred to you. I'm not always the best at tact. I promise to improve...

    Faith Vs. Works: What Are We Saved By?

    The biggest criticism against the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints by Christians is that it is too caught up on works, and doesn't recognize faith. This post is therefore meant to tackle this issue by displaying the two sides of the argument the best I can. I am biased...

    I'M An Unworthy Mormon Not Against The Chruch

    Okay, so I'm struggling in my faith at times. I still have hope. I find it difficult to go to church! I still go to institute and do my best to attend my family ward. I don't believe the endowment is a gift from God. I still believe Joseph Smith was a prophet. I don't think the...

    The Everlasting Covenant: Do The Mormons Have It? Not Entirely...

    "Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength...

    Drinking Alcohol: Is It Evil?

    Before I go too far into this topic I want to clarify that I have never tasted alcohol before in my entire life, and my plan is to keep it that way. I've been this way ever since I was 8 years old and learned how it is horrible for your liver, kills off your brain cells if you...

    I'M Clumsy, But God Never Leaves.

    I'm really not the most intelligent person in the world. Neither am I the most tactful... But I will say there's something on my heart that begs to be poured out to all who land upon reading this post. Even, if in the end, it's only one or two persons. ^_^I've been thinking for a...

    Believe it or not, as Mormons,

    we're supposed to think outside the box, have open minds and be receptive to new ideas... and yet so many just aren't.

    Christmas is a time to remember the birth of

    the Savior and renew our appreciation for the great gift of His perfect life and atoning sacrifice. In the scripture accounts of His birth, we find patterns of discipleship--from Samuel the Lamanite, who courageously prophesied of His coming, to the Nephites who looked...

    Grace Is Not An Excuse To Forever Sin

    The title of this post explains exactly what I'm thinking and feeling right now. This is largely because many people think they can forever hold onto their sins after learning the doctrine of grace. This is not so. For what reason did Christ die on the cross? He died because we...

    My Short Mormon Story

    I am 16, a sophomore and I am learning to deal with the criticism that I get from my peers because I am a mormon. I know many people are open to listening and accepting that I am mormon but then there are those who aren't as accepting. There was a point in time where I didn't...

    Childhood Observance In Other Churches Vs. My Adulthood As A Mormon Now

    This may be sound strange, but I felt that I should share how I saw sin was handled in non-denominational churches growing up. As I did attend a non-denominational church (as well as a charismatic-penecostal one) from infancy to 18 years of age, and I've noticed that it does to...

    Personal Revelation, Or Just Revelation?

    In case you don't know anything about Mormons, they teach that only the prophet and apostles may receive revelation to guide and direct the whole church. The rest of the members can do no more than receive revelation to guide and direct themselves within their personal lives...

    Song: "Here I am to Worship" by Chris TomlinIn Mormon culture, raising your arms while singing praises to your God is taboo. But why do Mormons feel this way? How do they view Christians who raise their arms during praise and worship?From reading the whole Book of Mormon myself...

    I Hate Disagreements In The Church

    Do I think it's fun disagreeing with the church on a few doctrines? No, I absolutely do not. Do I want to disagree with the church on a few things and have a testimony that seems "contrary" to the thing taught inside the church by the prophet and apostles? No, I absolutely do...

    Nobodies Are Somebodies to God!

    Jesus is a somebody who became a nobody so that I can become a somebody who learns how to be a nobody so that others can be a somebody! And so the cycle continues on for when I am somebody, then am I nobody. But when I am nobody, then am I somebody. Luke 18:9-14 And [Jesus] spake...

    All praise and glory belongs to God ALONE. I will accept NO recognition from this. Not that anyone would anyway.Inspiration from various parts of 1 Corinthians 7, James 2, and Romans 1-4. I have long been praying that if I may, by God's will, write this unto His people by...

    Why I'm Still A Mormon...

    I disagree with the church on a few things. And while I'm VERY apprehensive about talking about these disagreements in face to face conversation, I do not mind trying to talk these things over by letter. So I write a lot, and those who do not know me wonder why I try my very...

    Why The Endowment Is Problematic

     IMPORTANT: THIS IS TAKEN FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF AN UNWORTHY MORMON WHO HAS NEVER BEEN TO THE TEMPLE BEYOND THE BAPTISMAL FONT. There's many websites online that talk about the things that go on within the endowment. One of those websites is actually MormonThink.com, a...
