To The Prophet and Leaders of the LDS Church:

Please remove my name from church records for the following reasons:

1. For my sin of ignorance. Yes, the Bible teaches that ignorance is a sin. How am I guilty of this sin? As a Mormon I believed everything that…

Jesus as Grand Master of the Illuminati, not of the Danites ;)

So says a 'documentary' I watched tonight on pay per view: Illuminati - The Grand Illusion. 



It.wasn't.joking. Not sure yet I got my money's worth, but I'll decide after I watch it 2-3 more times between now and Friday. 



:lol:  



We're all just little puppets on strings, and the puppeteers are the Secret Society running the show behind the curtain. I kept waiting to hear them say "Joey Smith" and "Mormonism" in same sentence with Free Masonry and…

By way of being a short introduction of myself

I'm not real sure yet how to operate all the ins and outs of this site, but bear with me, I'm still familiarizing myself with all of this.  I thought I would give a history of the development of where I'm at now regarding my spirituality in chronological chapters in my next few posts.  Meanwhile,I'd like to say that I am enjoying a lot of the posts here.  I'm going to go ahead and post this to see if I'm doing it right.  Blessings!

Let's say I was busy!

While still managing to fulfill my Priesthood responsibilities, I was…

1977 California Fresno Mission

January 1977 , new year, I had left Miami for my 2 year Mormon mission.

Looking back it was tougher than I thought leaving than for most, because I didn't really have the support I needed as most missionaries would have , and this would serve me years later to save me and always give me a open mind which one needs to find a crack to leave the church , at the time of course I didn't see it that way when my mother didn't want me to go and didn't see me off to the airport and my dad…

My beginning 1975 -1976

When our heart is touched or pierced it changes direction , we open our whole being to asking questions that in the past where never possible , because we believe so hard and deep , we will go down with this ship of belief called Mormonism, the so called ONLY TRUE CHURCH.

In 1975 at age 17 I joined the LDS church with a naive and very trusting heart, why would I not trust these young men or leaders who projected everything i wanted to be from the start , coming from a weak family with…

As A Man Thinketh, So He Is ....

Remember that mantra we heard over and over and over again as Mormon?!

It's an adage as old as time because it still rings true.

Like, we are what we eat. 

Our attitudes reflect our behavior, behavior reflects our thoughts and so on.

Some of us evolved so much we thought ourselves plumb out of the Mormon religion.

Aren't you glad for your innate curiosity that helped find your way out of there? I know I am. Trust your higher power, and keep on keeping…
