10/26/08 -- Lately I have become very disaffected with the tone of the boards which I have frequented on this site; the acrimony, backbiting, bitterness, condescending tone and downright apostasy has become increasing frequent and open, to the point where I have now lost all desire of posting on this site for the foreseeable future. I am leaving my profile active so as to passively share my feelings and beliefs with anyone who cares to visit, but have no desire to actively post again. My thoughts and beliefs in this immediate space (as follows) remain as they have been from the beginning.
I believe in a living God, one who still speaks with a living prophet and apostles now as in ancient days. I believe in modern and continuing revelation, both in guiding the church as a whole and in our own personal lives, in service, in turning the other cheek but in staying the course. I believe in modern and ancient scripture, in three distinct indivduals in a single godhead and that the Lord is alive, is truly aware of our needs and hears and answers prayers. I believe in the restoration of the true and living faith in these latter days and the associated priesthood power, ceremonies and powers contained therein, that this power is active on the earth today and is to be had among those duly designated by divine commission throughout the world where the church is established.
