What LDS Hymn(s) do you miss?

The other day I found myself humming "Praise to the Man" in the shower.  Now that I'm a Christian I naturally have a few issues with that hymn. ;-)  What hymn(s) do you miss the most from the LDS…Continue

Did anybody else attend the Capstone Conference 2 weeks ago?

Hi everyone, I am knew to the group so I thought I would introduce myself.  Suddenly I am not sure what to say.  Most of my family are LDS and do not want to engage in any type of conversation about Christ.  It is pretty frustrating, but I know it is not in my control.  It took me 23 years after leaving the church to accept Christ into my life.  This shows me how patience, loving and understanding God is.  He never gives up on us, which is the best example to follow.

Some may feel that atheists are missing out.  That's a natural reaction if you are part of a believing community, but, for those who don't believe, they don't feel a sense of missing out.  Many atheists belief in us passing on from this physical life to another form of life, and don't attribute it to religion, and this is a feasible way of making non-belief work.  Many are buddhists, and they do not consider themselves pagans, and do consider a life after this physical one to be very real.  Any and all of these options can be very fulfilling, and the plethora of universal scripture in the bible, whether or not we consider it tradition or revelation, abides in the belief that all will be reunited with loved ones and animals.  Were it not true, why then would there be 50-60 universal scriptures, including one from Paul, stating, "All mankind will see God's salvation."  I wouldn't worry for two seconds about non believers, or, believers in differing religions.  the only reason I worry about fundamentalists is because they make my life so damn hard with their hate and judgementalism, calling on God's wrath as a reason for natural disaster, or terrifying acts of hate.  Franklin Graham has left his father's belief system by declaring God punishing us through tragedy because of our sin and disbelief.  Mega church leaders love to blame homosexuals for natural disaster.  These kinds of thoughts and actions that encourage hate in others are far more serious than those who choose atheism as their belief system.

I am here looking for a positive community of Christian exmormons. Unfortunately the rest of my family is still LDS, its hard to discuss Christian related things. And it was precisely the study of the beliefs and practices of early Christianity that led me, like many others, to the Catholic faith (or Eastern Orthodoxy).

Bingo!  The grace issue is brought up.  It took me ten years to actually get that.  When you are raised in an opposite manner, it just doesn't make sense.  Once I actually got that, my life became much more peaceful and generous.

If you find peace within the walls of a Catholic church, then by all means, go for it.  Far beit for me to get involved.  I just hated what Rome did with the original tenets of Christianity.  It doesn't mean you cannot find what  you are looking for, if that's your goal, and if you feel spiritual there.

Since I can't resist, as far as the comments on the Catholic Church goes the first three are consistent with the history of Christianity. Communion was always denied to those who did not profess the same faith – that’s how heretics were identified and excluded from the body of the church. Birth control was condemned by every Christian denomination before the twentieth century - the Catholics have resisted the morals of our age (we could add divorce to that as well). That some were called to celibacy was taught by Jesus, Paul, and the early Church. It became mandatory for the clergy over time in the Western rite (although there are some married Catholic priests and the rule could be changed), and in any case clergy were always forbidden to contract a new marriage after ordination. The last comment on personal study is not true, although unfortunately most Catholics today seem to be not particularly well informed on their faith or the Bible. The real issue is with the interpretation of the Bible, in Catholicism it is not a free for all where everyone’s opinion is equally authoritative.

<sigh> I had a feeling that the 'Catholic' thing would elicit some comments. I'm not really interested in getting into the Protestant vs. Catholic debate here, although if someone really wants to know why, with a great deal of study and prayer, I am considering Catholicism, I would be happy to share.

Comment by pollypinks on July 6, 2011 at 3:01pm
Yes, I am a lonely Christian here.  I feel there is no need to be saved from anything.  And attending a church that denies communal communion, birth control, marriage within the pulpit, and personal study aside from the body isn't really much different than mormonism, in my humble opinion.
