Oaks quoting Monson:

President Thomas S. Monson summarized these teachings: “We must be vigilant in a world which has moved so far from that which is spiritual. It is essential that we reject anything that does not conform to our standards, refusing in the process to surrender that which we desire most: eternal life in the kingdom of God.”


October Conference, folks.

Has the world moved far from that which is spiritual? Or has TSCC's leadership moved so far from that which is spiritual by focusing on gaining material wealth? And who's standards are the members not conforming to? God's standards? The Big 15's imposed standards? Humanity's standards? And does everyone in the world or even in TSCC desire eternal life in the kingdom of God as outlined by JS?

At the very most I am willing to adhere to the teachings of Jesus as told in the New Testament. Also Buddha and other wise spiritual leaders.

Don't forget: Ghandi, N. D. Tyson, Millard Fuller, Buckminster Fuller, Confuses, Nelson Madella, Rosa Parks, and OF COURSE the venerable-vegetable, Gordon B.S. Hinckley!

"in a world which has moved so far from that which is spiritual. It is essential that we reject anything that does not conform to our standards, refusing in the process to surrender that which we desire most: eternal life in the kingdom of God.”

What do Mormons reject (besides common sense)? Warmth. Sincerity. Inclusion. Diversity. Christianity. Patience. Charity. Happiness. Individuality. Free AGENCY

Oh yea! Mormons are 'more spiritual' (because they're lds?), not like everyone else, toying around, buying gadgets, watching movies and laughing and playing.

Conform to OUR(?) Standards (or LACK THEREOF!): Mormon CHURCH ONLY (including 'Joseph's Myth') thoughts 24 hours a day, perpetual TITHING, IN ADVANCE. [You PAY the church first, BEFORE YOU GET IT, and it pays you back AFTER it spends (and spins) it, in the form of cleanable, by you, the overzealous, unsuspecting, possibly foolish, and weary members, mostly empty chapels, invisible, eventual and eternal blessings, and an ever increasing demand list by 'the church'.

"... refusing in the process to surrender that which we desire most: eternal life in the kingdom of God.

Desire most? FEAR (so) [that Mormonism would have done it's job: fearmongering]. Surrender? This is the kingdom of God and THIS IS eternal lice. It's not like if you skip mormon church and go fishing, God won't be with you. He's everywhere (even in the worms, and the sky. Dummies
