eat your vitamins and get ready for things to happen or something to that effect. Other than dropping the name Mormon was there any need to take vitamins?

He also said that the restoration will continue to move forward at an amazing pace. And like the members will be impressed. What has been restored since he became prophet?

What I am seeing is a Church in decline spiritually, attendance declining, few people taking about the inspired program Come Unto Christ, etc. Nothing to most testimonies and the talks well just leave that alone.

Did I miss something? A female friend who goes to the temple often told me last week that she just attended a session and the wording has been changed but she could not say what it was but she knew if was different. This does not sound like restoration but modifications.

Take your vitamins because you have a LOT of bathrooms to clean!

If the temple ceremony were restored, they would put back in the oath of vengeance and the throat-slitting death oaths.

There would be butt naked initiatories.

Actually, the early temple sounds kind of fun.

Would have been nice if the brass plates or sealed plates were translated and published.

Other than that what is left to restore?

Maybe deaconess, priestess and prophetessesssssesss?

The most TBM members I know are Catholic converts. They are way into the genealogy temple work thing. The people I see bailing are born in church young single adults.

I think about a temple in Rome and an audience, demotion of Moroni, decline in restorationist thinking, flip flop on gay kids and marriage.

What were you going for?

They said flip flops on gay kids...
Otherwise, the kids might wear sandal-shoes, thongs, or maybe even go barefoot... unless they have two, in which case they might choose (many don't have a choice) to go barefeet.

Apparently Russ over-estimated his importance/ significance both inside &/other-than Mormonism…

I’m guessing he has a photo of himself & the Pope (aka the Holy Father, the Bishop of Rome, etc) prominently on view in his office…

any money on that guess?

If members looked for leadership during the pandemic, it left a lot to be desired. A lot of silence, no encouragement for god's mighty priesthood to heal the sick and inflicted. He finally encouraged members to get vaccinated and drove a bigger divide in the Mormon herd.

I think Rusty built himself the biggest sailboat and then looked like a fool when the wind refused to blow.

Temple-mania! It takes a lot of vitamins to build all those temples in Rusty's mind, and to tear apart the actual, historical temples and then snag a slab of SLC temple stone for his own grave.

That takes some real ego...

Russ will be soon forgotten. Members were quick to forget about Thomas S. Monson who was a highly visible general authority for decades. The members get excited about what the next thing is. It’s because they are hoping for signs the millennium is coming soon. Oh my gosh! Look at all the temples! Oh my gosh they are preparing the Salt Lake temple for a big earthquake! What is this new prophet going to tell us? As soon as Russ kicks it it’s going to be a thirsty curiosity of what the next prophet is going to say.
