Well today was my last day at the current location. It was a really tough day for multiple reasons. The biggest thing by far was the weight of the transfer. Did I make the right decision? That question was all I could think about. At the end of the night me and the girl were walking to our cars together like always, and the first thing she said to me was "I can't believe you are leaving, now I won't have anyone to walk with me to my car". I was like "So you're gonna miss me, huh?". She said she would.

We talked about other things the rest of the walk, and "goodbye" was all she said when we parted ways. She wore makeup for the first time since I've known her today. I wanted to ask for her #, but I got the strongest feeling that I shouldn't. I went to look up her company email on our company portal so I could email her tomorrow, but I can't get it to load. It's never down on Mondays, if it's gonna be down it's always on a Friday. It seems that I'm really meant to stay far away from this girl. It's probably for the best.

There's obviously a better plan in the works for me, and I'm being warned not to mess it up. It's why I got the transfer when I did, why I got the feeling that I shouldn't try to keep in contact with her, why when I tried anyway the company portal wouldn't even load. I'm not meant to chase this girl, and I'm not meant to fall away from the path I'm on. The Lord knows with how weak I am right now that it's possible I could have been led away by her so I've been protected. It's clearer than it's been in a while that I need to do better.

Hey /lds/,

I've mentioned in another thread that I'm from North Mexico, I won't take a pic cause I don't want to dox myself. Or maybe I'll just take a pic of my arm, fuck it

Since I'm mixed race, as is all of Latin America, are us down here all Lamanites but with one kind of blood predominating according to the amount of mixing?

Wouldn't we already be doomed according to 2 Nephi btw :^) Also, since we're mixed, we're supposed to marry fellow Lamanites that are close to our mix, I suppose?

Also, I'm finishing 2 Nephi today, I just have the attention span of a fly.


I'm at the Book of Mosiah now. 2 Nephi was quite complicated, and I'll need to reread it in the future and look for some YouTube lectures to fully grasp it. Since I'm reading some other stuff in the meantime, I'll have a temporary pause at this book.

I'm a third of the way done with the BoM, I don't get why people say it's like "chloroform in text" if it's quite decent and inspiring in several parts and allegories



>I don't get why people say it's like "chloroform in text" if it's quite decent and inspiring in several parts and allegories

Most people will never read it, and that's why most people will never understand the religion. You can tell them everything good about the religion, but until they actually read the book they will continue to believe whatever the rest of society tells them to believe about us. That we are a cult or whatever. In reality the Book of Mormon is one of the most inspiring books of scripture ever to exist. You can always open it up and read some verses and take something away that will help you.

I have not found the same phenomenon with the Bible. That isn't to say that the Bible is not valuable, because it is very very valuable but it isn't valuable in the same way. With the Bible, it generally takes a lot more reading to gain some sort of insight. With the Book of Mormon there are tons of single verses that are inspiring all on their own. It is packed with them. It is almost impossible to read a chapter and not come away with something that will help you with the things that are going on in your life.



I've actually never read the Bible…I've read the Qur'an and that was quite a difficult read (extremely repetitive due to being passed down in really bad condition, out of order chronologically), but I'm getting interested in the OT.

I might actually continue with the BoM today



>I've actually never read the Bible

I haven't finished it yet. I read a chapter of the new testament every once in a while when I feel like it. So far it hasn't done as much for me as the Book of Mormon does. All of this reminds me that I need to read the Book of Mormon more often. I used to do it every day, but then I got a job. I was at my best when I read it every day.

ITT: experiences redpilling other Mormons


I've slowly been trying to redpill my stepbrother. I think I've gotten him to accept that race is real and that it matters, but he's very much in the "Lol just be nice to everyone!" camp, so it's been difficult. The most I've gotten to show for it is that he thinks I'm crazy. Which I am, but still.>>2119

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.

Too many Mormons have been cucked on race to grow their numbers. I live in a very diverse ward and I can tell you that it is a huge spirit killer. Also good luck finding a trad Mormon waifu in a YSA branch full of niggers.



My ward has no niggers. I dunno about your ward, so I won't speak about that but this "good luck finding x in y" blackpilled defeatist faggotry needs to go.



Brigham Young was right about … everything, but that's no surprise. There is no contradiction in the one thing and the current thing.



Good posts. This should be our attitude. If the Church has proved anything, it's that it will take care of itself automatically, if the members will only focus on living up to their privileges. Another thing Brigham was right about.



I don't consider myself racist. I am a race realist. I recognize that there are differences in people that correlate with race. But I don't hate people for it. I just think that race mixing is a bad idea because it has a high probability of causing problems. I can cause the children to not feel that they have an identity. I'm just thinking of the children here.


As far as I know, 1 Nephi or 2 Nephi forbids race mixing, mentioning that if Lamanites and Nephites mix, their seed shall be cursed.

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.


>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.

Well I think that you are having this feelingPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



>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.




>As a fellow autist, I =hate= going to church.

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



>What age range are you in now?


>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.


>I hope the OP comes back to read it

I did :)

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.



>Sorry, hope I'm not making too much of a mess

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.



>A year and 4 months now. Time flies.

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.

Okay, serious inquiry here.

I'm a Protestant, but I read the Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, and D&C last year. I have LDS friends and have attended services with them a few times. I've even had missionaries come over and do the lessons. Yadda yadda yadda, that's the background, here's the situation.

A few weeks ago I started having really deep cravings to read the Book of Mormon again. It's a strange feeling that I really have no way to logically account for. I didn't have this feeling when the missionaries were coming over or when I was following the Word of Wisdom and praying over the Book of Mormon. It's just been BAM, out of nowhere. And it's not just the BoM, I have these cravings to watch all of the LDS-related movies I can get my hands on.

Now, this would be fine if I felt the BoM was true or even if I felt neutral towards it. The issue is that I'm very convinced on an intellectual level that it's not true.

Has anyone else here experienced this? Any advice? I feel like I'm going slowly crazy.



>The issue is that I'm very convinced on an intellectual level that it's not true.

Intellect doesn't mean much in the realm of spirituality tbh. What you are feeling is the spirit guiding you to do these things. Try praying about whether the Book of Mormon is true and see what answer you get. There really is something to this book, and approaching it from anything but a spiritual level will leave you disappointed. This is a spiritual matter, and spiritual matters are matters of faith above all else.



>Has anyone else here experienced this? Any advice? I feel like I'm going slowly crazy.

One does not simply… hie to Kolob.

The Spirit reaches and tutors honest people everywhere. Don't cast the die so quickly. Intellect is one of several channels for truth, and prone to its own errors.

Are you willing to silence an inexplicable yearning so that your self-image as a conforming Protestant ideologue remains intact? I'm sure parties besides yourself are interested in the answer.

I doubt you are really interested in this, given how low your effort was in creating this thread. If you really do want to know there is no better way to learn than from the official LDS website. I couldn't give you a better explanation if I tried. Here is a well cited article written by the church.

No problem. It's too bad the mod tools don't allow me to merge threads, so this screen cap will have to do.


i didn't get into the church until long after i was out of scouts, but i'm still so sad to see this.

now more than ever young boys need a moral, male-centric community to teach them virtue



The program the church will create should be a good replacement. Hopefully just because it will be LDS, it won't discourage non-LDS from participating. But at least LDS youth will remain more ideologically pure. They will not have to deal with homosexual leadership, and forced integration of women into male roles

Since I live in a gated neighborhood, they blocked the entrance of the missionaries when they found out my baptism was about to be scheduled.

I managed to attend service twice though, and I still have my handy BoM.



Well that is unfortunate. My parents were pretty against me speaking with the missionaries and threatened to kick me out of my house. I prayed about it that night, and my answer was that I should just continue on the path I was on. It was the first answer to a prayer I had ever gotten, and it was a really tough answer. I decided it was what I had to do, and keep meeting with the missionaries however I had to accomplish it. The next morning my dad apologized to me and said I could keep meeting with them, and that it was a blessing that I had met them. Pray about it, and keep doing the right thing and good things will happen.

Nice. It's been a year and a couple months since I was baptized, and I remember it was a really calming and peaceful experience.

>and am getting the Priesthood

That will be awesome too, and I would recommend that you take every opportunity you get to pass and bless the sacrament. It's a really good experience.


tfw will probably get baptised in 2020 ;_;. I'll probably be too old for.missionaey work at 24, or who knows?



>tfw will probably get baptised in 2020

Better late than never.

>I'll probably be too old for.missionaey work at 24

Oh you are in a much better spot than I was when I got baptized IMO. I wish I was only 24. 25 is the cut off for being a missionary I think, I know how you feel though. I didn't get to go on a mission because i was baptized at 28. It isn't too big of a deal, but one thing I learned is if you are talking to cute girls and they ask you if you went on a mission or where you served your mission let them know you are a convert and that solves a lot of awkwardness.

I would always start my answer with "no" or "I didn't go on a mission" and then move onto the fact I'm a convert. The first look you get is disappointment if you do that when they know you are old enough to have gone on a mission. So when you start off with "I'm a convert" they get more excited about hearing your story instead of disappointed, and it really helps the conversation move more in your favor.

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?

Some doubts about race-mixing that were off-topic for the thread.

t. that poster






creator of nee and sariah here again, it's just my opinion, but i think their catch phrases shouldn't be the type of thing that would scare people away lol

family is forever is really cute!

maybe a call and respond between them for "God's not dead" "He's alive"?



>but i think their catch phrases shouldn't be the type of thing that would scare people away

agreed tbh
