Music vs Mission

I have always been involved in music projects.



When new music plans in my early 20s didn´t work out, I took it as a sign from God that I should go on a mission. I had just been a member for about a year back then.

Brother going on mission.

So my younger brother sent in his mission  papers and is getting ready to go on a mission. I told him that he needed to have a talk with me before he went but I don't really know what I should talk to him about. I came home early from a mission because I couldn't justify telling people that they should believe in the church. I think that the main reason I went in the first place was because I don't know what I wanted to do with my life and it seemed like it was a good opportunity to go…

Televangelism: The Gospel Of Prosperity

Writer's Note "This was a term paper I did in college and it has a lot of good information about tithing and how televangelists and their mega-churches scram people out of money out of fear and guilt. It also has information on how to know if a charity is really a charity."…

Understanding Why our Emotions are Extreme anger when we Realize The Church isnt True

I have been researching neural pathways and how they generate energy that our bodies feel as emotions.  I began researching this because of the extreme emotional weight I was feeling in my personal life. In short; Our neural pathways develop through our experiences and they generate the energy that create our emotions. The most important thing we need to understand is our emotions in their design simply support your belief system no matter what it is and our neural pathways and…

"The Church is Perfect Buts its Members are Not" A response I now use that might help

I have to good friends that are hook line and sinker into the LDS church and they were apart of watching me leave the church and get on with life, they use to use this fraise all the time to dismiss anything I was using to point out dysfunctions in the church. I hated that I didn’t have a profound response other than to just bitch more about the church and all the judgmental members. After thinking about this for a long time I finally realized something that made complete sense to me. We…

How can we truly enjoy life of life is a Test?

The big conflict within a religion is this, Religions believe in reward through righteous living, meaning we are to sacrifice time talents ect. all in the name of our reward we will receive. Additionally they view life as a test!!! Yet in the temple they say “men and women (accept they leave out the woman) are that they might have joy, how can you live a life both ways? To me it is impossible. How about this “this life is the reward, it is what we make of it”.

Understanding How a Belief System Develops in an Individual from a SCIENTIFIC LOGICAL Perspective

I have been researching neural pathways and how they generate energy that then become our emotions.  I began researching this because of the extreme emotional weight I was feeling in my personal life. i have been on a mission, worked in the temple, and my uncle was a poligimist so i have a good understanding of extremes.  This weight came from my continuing experiences and ever changing interpretation of what was required of me to be righteous enough to receive my reward.…
