Lengthen your stride. Do it now! Only he who does something is worthy to live...Put your shoulder to the wheel, push along.

Didn't Jesus say that He would give us rest?

You are never good enough! You have no right to rest and feel good about yourself! You are always defective! And if you believe you are defective, it's always your fault! Because the church is true!

Jesus only had to keep it up 33 years. Try doing it for 70! :-D

Yeah! Gird up your loins, kids. Fresh courage take, y'all. Come, come, ye Saints, no toil nor labor fear. I mean, you wanna get into the CK or not?

Why should we mourn or think our lot is hard? Tis not so. Really. I Swear. Your God will never you forsake, so it's really all a piece of cake. Or, at least pretend that all is well, it's your duty, or you'll go to hell.

I'm curious if anybody has info on the origin of that phrase & how it's commonly understood.

Joseph Smith senior had a dream about the tree of life and people needing to hold on to an iron rod to find their way to the tree. When Joseph Smith junior "translated" the BOM, behold, old Father Lehi had had the same dream.

Lengthen your stride, even though you're lower than a snakes' belly! Mormon says that we are less than the dust of the earth". And lest we forget, the good King Benjamin also states: "Ye cannot say that ye are even as much as the dust of the earth". (Mosiah 2:25) It's a little difficult for a piece of dust to do better unless it can somehow progress and become a dust ball. Let's see now: oh yes: Jesus said something about little sparrows are loved and cared about and how much more so are we. I'll lengthen my stride; to get as far away from the TSCC as possible.

The first adjective I would use to describe the old TBM me is tired. You're scum. Do more.

.....If you dare think you're doing fairly well just attend your meetings and wait until the fifth Sunday of the month rolls around. In the combined priesthood and relief society meeting we will find a topic you are an abject failure in and make you feel like the worthless scum you are.

Man, I don't miss all that bs at all! Among the myriad reasons I left tscc is I got so sick of being tired all the damn time! Working full time, single parent and doing the list of callings,etc. that looked like the dead sea scrolls. More than even wanting my money back, I had rather have my valuable time back.

I wonder how many people might have lost their jobs due to Mormon busywork over-extending them.

Singing...

“Improve The Boner moments,
Don’t let them pass you by,
Wank, for the night draws nigh.
We cannot bid the hard-ons
To lengthen out their stay,
Nor can we ask the Boner
To ever stay away!”

Knowing the way that Joseph and Brigham were with women, they probably did sing the Boner song.

Always had a problem with this part of this song:

4. And should we die before our journey’s through, Happy day! All is well!

I do admit that there were days sitting in church meetings when I wished with all of my heart that I could die at that very moment.

The sad thing is that they were not asked to put their lives at risk because of God's revelation. The Federal Marshalls were coming to nab poor Brigham (and some apostles) for deceiving the "gentiles" with their wondrous manufacture of counterfeit coins. But you see, they were righteous because God doesn't care about the "gentiles".

It’s sarcasm. Just say “Oy” a few times, you’ll be fine.
