https://www.ksl.com/article/50048381/president-nelson-to-share-spiritual-remedy-in-a-special-message-next-week

So the answer to COVID, political chaos, wealth inequality, life, the universe and everything will turn out to be (wait for it!):IKNOWTHECHURCHISTRUE!

You heard it here first, folks.

And here I thought that the answer was 42.

I saw that and kind of groaned. Spiritual remedy? Good grief.

I would be pleasantly surprised if Rusty did indeed say something uplifting and useful. But I'm pretty sure that he will come up with something along the lines of Ralphy's decoder ring: "drink more Ovaltine"

He's going to utter the invaluable advice to follow the prophets, both new and old, and to pray, pay and obey. He will promise a money-back guarantee if you don't like your Reward in Heaven®, no questions asked.

"from heart failure (medical) to failing hearts (spiritual)"

I think that snippet alludes his overall message: You are losing faith in the Church (implied christ). And I agree that it will be a morale beating that all is not well in mormonland.

I clicked on the link to read the KSL article and at the bottom of the screen it said "Cookie notice"-- so maybe some active member will leave a treat on my doorstep! :-)

Don't bite!

•What do ya want to bet with Rusty's poor understanding of vacancies at temples and stake centers he admonishes LDS parishioners to avoid social media?

•Milk before meat means much more emphasis placed on Jesus, until later..

•Sing song voice and soothing doctoring advice to follow local covid19 recommendations.

•Temple Temple Temple, last ditch effort on being a particular people.

•Be nicer to non Mormons, inactive members, estranged friends and LDS family because, well, it cannot be anyone's else's problem. Good grief!

•Emotional appeals, Emotional appeals, Emotional appeals..

The most useful thing he could say to the believers is that the virus is not a hoax, and that church members are to set a good example by wearing masks, staying home as much as possible, and foregoing large gatherings.

Interesting in the video he touted as "a global faith leader".

No where did I see prophet.

They're the ones who believe in "spiritual healing," from stubbed toes to brain cancer and everything in between.*

*Exceptions: basic dentistry, optometry (but not ophthalmology), and obstetrics.

Well, he seems sincere...

“My dear friends, the challenges that we face as fellow global citizens are immense, but our ability to feel hope and seek healing in Jesus Christ remains strong,” the 96-year-old leader wrote last week on Instagram. “I have felt impressed to share with you a message on November 20, 2020, from 11:00 to 11:15 a.m. MST.”

"The video ... shar(ing) a “fast-acting and long-lasting spiritual remedy” — will be posted on his social media accounts and on the church’s main YouTube channel in 31 languages."


And he and his message will promptly, and very fittingly, be mocked by those of us who do not believe he communes with ghawd.

He might as well be asking us to pay, pray and obey, you know?

One of his priesthood keys activates the Infinite Probably Drive.

So is Jeffery Holland really Marvin the Paranoid Android? I'd say the resemblance is amazing!

Reminds me of attending a symphony; When the conductor comes onstage, most everyone applauds for him/her, Before they've done anything...

Should everyone's wealth be equal?

If so - what amount(s) should everyone have?

Do leprechauns exist?

If so, how many will fit on the head of each court jester?
