    I think this will have the opposite effect. They might gain some liberal members, but conservative mormons will reject this and leave. In the end, the LDS church will become a bunch of liberals and self-destruct.

    From your fingers to God's eyes. Nelson's other talk made me so ticked that I started crying.

    My daughter Faith just came back from Utah and got to visit the Welcome Center to ask the sisters a few questions. She asked about this, and they hemmed and hawed about "continual revelation", and she asked why God kept changing his mind.

    yep continuing revelation would be new revelation that added to old revelation, not outright contradicted it.

    I wonder if this will even changed their revelation on Baptisms for the Dead and include LGBT members who have passed.

    Hey guys, it's been quite a while since I've been here. It's nice to see that TWEB is still running. I found this article a little while back that's a very good commentary on the topic of this thread.

    Wow, THIS from the article you posted...

    God clearly commanded the original policy that denied baptism for children of LBGTQ parents. But as we all know, even the man upstairs makes mistakes sometimes. All of us, including God, are all on a path to greater knowledge, perfection, and glory. When God repents, the prophet has a sacred duty to take the fall for him.


    This pretty much defines the Mormon "God" -- a fallible being who makes mistakes, and hopes to learn from them.

    We saw that every time Joseph Smith came up with a "thus saith the Lord", then had to backtrack and "ok, THIS is 'what saith the Lord' now - forget that earlier proclaimation". (like the whole polygamy scam)

    That's what happens when you base beliefs on lies. You have to keep making up new stuff, and then it gets hard to remember what you said before.

    It's the height of blasphemy to say that God makes mistakes. But better the fault be with Him than with man, of course.
