Ironically, this is one of the most toxic board's I've visited in a long time. It's so painfully non self aware, and racist. Even /christian/ isn't as bad. And before you delete this post, I am a member, but I'm pretty appalled by this board's contents.

Take a little /pol/, add some /b/, and then sprinkle a little LDS on it, and you've got /lds/.

I really don't want to be that guy, but, BO, you're really not keeping this place very Mormon at all. Stuff like setting the banner to "Brigham Young was right about niggers," and generally allowing a bunch of racism. I'm sure that /pol/ would have a fun time saying how Mormons are so "redpilled" (which was the case before non-mormons were banned), but this is not the place. Considering I was the first poster here, I've seen this place get progressively worse. There's already too much /pol/ spread around 8ch anyway.

I sort of get you, but at the same time, how could you be against an official declaration of the church, as one of the biggest premises of the church is modern revelation? Makes no sense.

I guess I should make it clear right now that I'm not the typical Mormon. Now I'm not saying anything against Mormons with what I'm about to say, but people in general. I'm not going to cuck out on race, and dance around issues that exist. The term racism has always been a term used to shut down discussion of real issues. The real issue being that niggers are subhuman filth that only wish to destroy everything they come in contact with while demanding free shit from the dumb fuck white people that think they need to apologize for being white because some Jews enslaved a bunch of niggers a long time ago.

If this hurts anyone's feelings all I have to say is leave my board immediately, go back to reddit and never return. There is no debate to be had here. You are a cancer to this site, this board, and this religion. Next thing you are going to tell me is that if we dissolve the priesthood by handing it over to women to be more progressive that would be just fine too. Quit being a fucking cuck and grow a fucking spine.

I've been meaning to start a thread like this!

the entire 2018 mutual album is so good, I could listen to the male version of Peace in Christ forever probably.

technically not LDS music, but my favorite religious song is oceans by Hillsong untited (especially since my favorite New testament story is Simon Peter walking out on the water toward Christ).

Tenth Avenue North also does some pretty good music, but it's more pop/mainstream sounding.

Anyome reading it?

I just finished it and I really like it. It doesn't hide a lot a church history under the rug or try to sanitize it. While it does read as a novel which may or may not be good depending on what you enjoy, it does give a lot of blunt facts such as plural marriage practiced by Joseph and the conections of the Endowment to free masonry. I've met a lot of people who claim to have been turned off from the church after they "discovered" something they didn't know and I enjoy the more open direction the church went with the book.

Opinions?

I know the church has 'disavowed' our religion's

past beliefs despite being proposed as fact from Joseph onward and even after the lifting of the priesthood ban. Most members of the general authority have remained entirely quite on their opinions regarding racial theology while some have voiced their opinions but their opinions being "lol just forgetta about! they were just racist".

I personally am of believer of LDS racial theology. I'm actually a technical convert but with wholely LDS heritage and among the reasons I converted was that the traditional LDS view regarding the races of humanity made extreme sense to me.

This doesn't mean of course I dislike non-white LDS, I just view them the way our parents and grandparents did. I think races should remain seperate and that all cultures/ethnic groups have the right to remain distinct. The Japanese for example have as much of a right to remain ethnically and culturally Japanese as the Quebecois.

I think the 'Ethnic Mormon' (Deseret region mormons of typical north-western eurpean pioneer/early convert descent) have that right too. Of course we can have visitors and non-white LDS making 'pilgramiges' to our land, I just want our land to remain how it was until diversity began to be foisted upon the American populace during the 60s.

How and why are you people on a chan?

Whatevs. Wandered in here from /b/, might as well ask. How are you guys doing financially? I've heard you're loosing members, and the ones your getting tend to be on the poor side, how do you plan to keep paying for temples when your new people are well, broke? I know a few mormons and they've been in your religion forever and are loaded, loosing people like that has to be a huge hit in the pocket book. Know your leadership invested well but come on, you're not rome.

Also, are you guys doing anything about the threat of church related violence in the states? The protestants/evangelicals are reaping the whirlwind for their poor behavior by having some of their churches armed, read one of your churches in Nevada was shot up a few weeks ago. Will give you guys credit, compared to the baptists and evangelicals you've not done as much to make the rest of the country hate you as much as of late, but still i'd take that as a bad sign of things to come.

Also, crank out more cute asian sister missionaries, that's like my favorite contribution your religion makes to the world.

I don't really care about any of that, but we have more missionaries out in the field than ever, temples are going up everywhere, still one of the fastest growing churches even if growth has slowed, etc.

>How are you guys doing financially?

Probably pretty good tbh. I don't know or care, money isn't what the religion is about.

>Also, are you guys doing anything about the threat of church related violence in the states?

Mormons are very well armed. Besides that I doubt there's anything official being done. My ward has former military, and police that are all armed at church every Sunday.

>Also, crank out more cute asian sister missionaries, that's like my favorite contribution your religion makes to the world.

I hope you are a chink, and not a racemixer.

Anyway, you seem to be really caught up in money and statistics. None of that is why anyone is part of this church, and if they are they are a part of it for the wrong reasons. There's much more to it than that, and I'd be happy to tell you about it if you want to know more.

Religion in the states is always about money and power, and wow geez thats why a lot of people don't take you guys seriously, nothing wrong with an asian gf. Considering what pieces of garbage they are in the states i'd opt for one waaay before I consider some entitled american woman who would screw me over in court. Look at the divorce statistics, it's woman who usually initiate it, and now they're about as bad as black women when it comes to out of wedlock birth. Already had a few friends raked over the coals in divorce. Sure, know there's a few good ones but they all know they have the legal and societal advantage.

I knew your kind is pretty well armed, hell lots of people are. I was just hinting at it's a bad sign when you have to start playing that card. Not a lot of places left to flee in the states, esp. if you have kids. White families aren't what they used to be, even mormons aren't doing so hot. It's sad really, with mainline protestants hell even you people did a great job raising stable kids but it seems like anglos as a whole have tanked. While they're busy pointing the finger they don't want to take a good long hard look in the mirror. Funny, people rip on Europe yet places like Germany have a far lower divorce rate, businesses are closed by law on sunday and holidays and abortion after the first trimester is pretty much a crime.

Money and statistics is kind of my thing, i'm a materialist with mystic leanings. With your kind it's the fleeing illonois after a rebelion, ripping off masonic degree work from blue lodge and terraforming SLC into someplace habitable that's amazing. Temple square is an architectual wonder, I may be going through next April and will visit temple square if I get the chance. Fact that they made that thing without nails is amazing.

It was a compliment. If you are white you can do better than a chink. I can't control what you decide to do with your genetics, but if you want to splatter them inside of a subhuman chink and waste them that is your decision. I just think you should aim higher. And I wasn't making a joke about how short chinks are right there either. My views expressed here don't represent most Mormons these days. I'm a convert, and cut from a different cloth than the types that are raised in the church. I'm also a real imageboard user, not some faggot from reddit so don't expect me to censor myself here. I do share the same values as the majority of Mormons mostly.

We agree on a lot of things, but the church does not agree with me on race anymore which in my opinion is a very sad turn. Joseph Smith and Brigham Young were very strong on race. To the majority of Mormons I'd be considered some sort of radical, and they probably wouldn't want me speaking on their behalf even though I'd be speaking from a position that was acceptable in this church before cultural Marxism dismantled every great institution in the US. A lot of them probably are thinking the things I say though. This church has stood pretty strongly against cultural Marxism through the emphasis on the family, but the importance of race has been lost.

>Temple square is an architectual wonder, I may be going through next April and will visit temple square if I get the chance. Fact that they made that thing without nails is amazing.

All the Mormon temples I've seen are really great. I hope you get to go see temple square.

Ok what race are you then? If you're a burger than you're mixed ethnically. Most of the old stock bred with everyone else around em. Unless you're amish or something you're just like everyone else el goblino lol.

TBH, I agree with race to a point, thing is you know what diseases run in your family. If you're that concerned, i'd start reading up on Dr. Mendel and the eugenics programs the Germans and now the Chinese have. We're even making headway on artifical wombs. If I ever wanted kids i'd go that route, i'd be able to have the perfect child. I'd be doing it outside of the USA, the feminists here are already kivetching about sex robots, this will take away the last card they have, being the gatekeeper of life.

Your temples are neat, nothing like what i've seen in some places here and in Europe. You guys will never rival Rome, my god the Vatican was epic. The Cute Japanese sister missionaries at temple square made it better though.

The Official Nee-chan thread.

Let us begin the brain storming on how we can use the power of nipnimation combined with good LDS themed ideas to spread the word and build goodwill amongst our peers.

A kind anon has blessed us with a beautiful contribution. So let’s make some decisions -

1. Nee-Chan is serving her mission “on the web”.

2. Nee-Chan needs a catch phrase.

(Christ-Chan uses “That’s heresy!” As hers)

3. Does she need a companion? I think not because she’s a special case… being digital and all. Ideas?

4. How do we find some folks to help contribute art so we can build some meme folders?

WARNING: Whiny bullshit ahead.

So I was born and raise LDS, lived a (relatively) normal life, but became addicted to porn during puberty because my parents never game me "the talk" so I decided to learn about it on the internet like a retard. I've struggled with it and could go months without fapping sometimes but I always relapsed. Then I decided to "quit for good" and go on a mission when I hit 19. I went to the temple and did everything right, I talked to a counselor when I got to the MTC and he decided to send me home because my depression/anxiety was too bad. AFTER being sent home honorably my parents decided that it was time they told me that my family has a large history of major depression and bipolar disorders. I got home and did my best to keep going to singles ward and stuff, but sure enough I ended up slipping up and getting stuck on porn again. It's been just over 3 years now and I've stopped going to church and I'm starting to lose all faith. There are too many things I disagree with the church on now race, politics, etc. and I'm honestly scared to go back. I know sexual sins are a big deal, especially after having gone through the temple, and I don't want to get excommunicated and stuff. However I still have this nagging feeling that I need to go to church, but I just don't see why. It's clear to me that God has no great love for me with all the bullshit I've had to go through not just depression but other stuff I'd rather not get into.

So, now that I've given you basically my life story I'm just wondering, what do I do? I hate going to church, introducing myself, and having everyone ask "where did you go on a mission" only to have to tell them that I got sent home because I "got sick" in the MTC, and have them instantly think less of me. I don't want to have to go through the excommunication process, and I don't want to be "that guy" that sits alone and has issues. So what do I do? I'm kinda at a complete loss of what direction I should be heading here.

I'm fully aware I sound like an emo teenage faggot, but I figured if there's anywhere I could get some advice for this stuff it would be here. Sorry.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

First of all, I want to welcome you to the board.

>>1887

>It's clear to me that God has no great love for me with all the bullshit I've had to go through

That's where you are wrong tbh. I am just a convert, and I know that you probably have much greater scripture knowledge than I do being born into the church, but I do have a few scriptures that I think are relevant to how you feel. First we will start with 1 Nephi 1:1

>1 I, Nephi, having been born of goodly parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my father; and having seen many afflictions in the course of my days, nevertheless, having been highly favored of the Lord in all my days; yea, having had a great knowledge of the goodness and the mysteries of God, therefore I make a record of my proceedings in my days.

This is such a powerful verse to start off the Book of Mormon. Nephi knows that he is favored of the Lord even though he has seen many afflictions. Now why is this important? Let's look at Mosiah 23:21-22.

>21 Nevertheless the Lord seeth fit to chasten his people; yea, he trieth their patience and their faith.

>22 Nevertheless—whosoever putteth his trust in him the same shall be lifted up at the last day. Yea, and thus it was with this people.

So from this we can see why Nephi believes he is so favored of the Lord even though he has seen so many afflictions in his life. All of these things happen for a reason. We may not understand why these things happen to us at the time, but these things happen to us because the Lord knows we can take it. He wants us to progress, and become better, stronger, more resilient people. The only way that you can become stronger is to go outside your comfort zone. Just like if you are lifting weights, you aren't going to get stronger if you just lift a weight that is easy for you every day. So when these bad things happen to you, try to find something positive to take from it. You already dealt with the trial, you may as well learn something from it.

>I'm fully aware I sound like an emo teenage faggot

Yes. What age range are you in now? I ask only as a reference point. I felt the same way when I was young, and I'm not sure how common these feelings still are among the various youths.

>So I was born and raise LDS, lived a (relatively) normal life, but became addicted to porn during puberty because my parents never game me "the talk" so I decided to learn about it on the internet like a retard.

> sure enough I ended up slipping up and getting stuck on porn again.

First, let me say I understand 100% because I felt this same way too, for basically the same reasons, and spent most of my teenage years dealing with the same emotions and processes, for months and years.

Please understand that this perspective that you and I had is based on a severe misconception in the Church. Everything you're dealing with is very common. Do not feel defeated. Do not indulge self-pity on this point.

Almost every person masturbates to some extent. This is not to endorse or excuse things that we shouldn't do, but to indicate that you should not allow yourself to feel like you've done a great evil if you slip up occasionally.

In recent decades, pornography exposure and use is also _very_ common. I've heard bishops say that ~3/4s of their adult male congregations have ongoing pornography struggles. When outside researchers wanted to study the effect of porn, they couldn't find a substantial, reliable control group that could credibly claim minimal or no exposure to porn.

Again, I don't say this to excuse it, especially not porn consumption. I am about the furthest thing you can get from a bleeding heart liberal Mormon. But you need to know that you're raking yourself over the coals way harder than necessary.

To be honest, the fact that you have concern about this conduct and that you want to improve automatically places you in a good position relative to your average fellow congregant.

Great post. I hope the OP comes back to read it, but even if he doesn't I'm sure there are others that need to read this.

I am glad there are people that know the struggle and talk about it here. Sometimes I feel alone in my beliefs.

>Go get the sacrament.

I was under the assumption that you weren't supposed to take the sacrament if you were guilty of mortal sin. Which sexual immorality after the temple is. So I would have to go to sacrament and then pass it up.

Hi everyone. Glad to see someone made a board. I swing by every few months and generally participate in a good thread on a non-religious board. I'm sure I've seen some of y'all around over the last 15 years. Who's here?

Hey, anon. Glad you are here and hope you stick around. Most of us post in the off topic sticky thread. I'm the board owner.

Hey man. Sorry, hope I'm not making too much of a mess. I don't really frequent imageboards, which I'm sure is obvious by this point. I usually just swing by pol and try to help some fellow wanderers. Appreciate your patience.

I also just read that you were baptized fairly recently. That's awesome. I assumed I'd know you from somewhere, as we seem like-minded, but seems like I won't. I have a long and controversial history on the online LDS scene, but lost interest in the old haunts a few years ago. It's great to meet you.

Not at all. This board needs more traffic.

>I also just read that you were baptized fairly recently

A year and 4 months now. Time flies

>It's great to meet you

Great to meet you too. This board only has a couple Mormons on it including me, that's why we are mainly in the off topic thread right now. I'd love if more threads got created though tbh.

Awesome. I'm really interested in outsiders who've been immersed in atheistic online cultures and eventually come to find and accept the gospel. How'd you find out about the Church? What interested you in it?

>How'd you find out about the Church?

A couple of sister missionaries knocked on my door.

>What interested you in it?

I was trying to improve myself when the sister missionaries came, and I just felt there was something different about them. I didn't realize how different for a while, but I did realize that they were full of hope they were also really cute. I decided to listen to what they had to say, and continue on with the lessons. I had no idea what I was getting into, and was pretty overwhelmed at times but I stuck with it. I finally saw that my goals were possible.

They showed me that good girls still exist, and that being the best man that I can be is worth striving for. Now it's just a matter of time. At first I didn't really know or care if what they were telling me was true the fact that there was hope for something better was all that I needed. And over time things got easier and easier to accept. There was a time where I seriously struggled with my faith, but I got over it. Now there is nothing that will shake my faith. The only thing is I am weak sometimes, but that's what this religion is all about. Realizing that we are imperfect and striving for improvement.

>27 And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.
