  1. Interesting… very suitable title and analysis.

    I was thinking this was about making the decision to go less active in the church.

    However, if we are to have any hope at all of changing the church it would have to be when the less actives (2/3 of the church) decide to become active.

    • David, a dilemma there? That 1/3 that is active has a large number of Pharisees (and their minions) with Power and Authority which chases the 2/3 out. Sad but same exact problem in Jesus’ day. that is why they flocked to Jesus, He was not like our modern day Pharisees with Power and Authority to be obeyed and not questioned. He taught the opposite.

      “Gospel” is supposed to mean “Good News,” not Leaders “called” with Key’s, Power and Authority (D&C 121:33-46) to bully, abuse, threaten, punish and force salvation (Satan’s Plan?) for Christ. Amen to their priesthood?

      Where did that scripture make their Keys, Power and Authority go? It goes the same way as the Pharisees – bye bye. Making bad Not-Sees into good Not-Sees is futile, as was the case with every govt and true church in the BoM too and forecast therein for our day too. We were warned of this more than any other church, “because we are not the true church???”

      The Pharisees bullied and coerced “goodness and salvation” too, and Jesus told them just what they were and were not:
      Matt 7: 3,6-12,15-24
      Matt 15: 11-14
      Matt 23: 10-29
      Isaiah 5: 20,21
