Corrected mistakes make a good lesson for the future, uncorrected mistakes Don't.

This quote fits me and my adventures in Mormonism. Even though I wasted a lot of time and money, I've learned many lessons for a better future.

Don’t put that in your mouth, you don’t know where it’s been.

I found out where Mormonism had been. I wasn’t sucking on a Fudgesickle.

It's nice to learn from your own mistakes. You can learn from the mistakes of others of course, but the lesson doesn't carry the same weight.

That which I learned the most from and changed me for the better is that which I regret the most and causes a twinge of pain at times. Depth usually carries scars.

Your post reminds me how much we all need to see who we are today and not who we have been. Forgiveness is a healing quality and has nothing to do with religion. It is a jewel of mankind.

Unfortunately, its specialty in each particular instance is teaching you exactly what you needed to know BEFORE you had that particular experience.

"Like, wow! That was such a learning experience. I don't think I will ever try to run faster than a speeding train again...especially while running inside the tracks."

It's not so much help with other stuff, unless you're in a situation where you find yourself in nearly identical situations over and over and over (like Groundhog Day).

"Corrected mistakes make a good lesson for the future, uncorrected mistakes Don't."

I don't like the message. The emphasis is on correcting the mistake (not always possible), not learning from it.

The great thing about most mistakes is that they CAN'T be corrected. That is why a mistake is such a great learning tool. If a mistake could easily be corrected there wouldn't be a lesson learned to help us in the future. We learn from making mistakes, not so much by correcting them.

For example, if I wash a wool sweater in hot water and it shrinks, I can't un-shrink the sweater but I will remember to never again wash a wool sweater in hot water. I can't correct my mistake but I can learn from it.

Mistakes are important for learning and growing. LDS Inc. likes to condemn and punish. They emphasize correcting, not learning. LDS Inc. is not a kind and loving church.

If it were kind and loving, it wouldn’t be a worldwide church.

When have you ever not been worthy of God’s love? How about never? But that doesn’t sell. Unconditional love doesn’t work in the Mormon world. Because then what would you need the church for?

Charlatans from day one. They love the lies they profess even while quoting scripture condemning the same. You can’t make this stuff up.
