General Conference October 2014. Sunday Morning Session, by Bobby Gilpin

I think the thing that always strikes me very quickly whenever I listen to any general conference talk is this, where is the revelation? Where is ANYTHING that is new. It just does not happen. There are thousands of missionaries around the world telling people how great it is that the LDS church has a… Read More ›


General Conference – October 2014 – Priesthood Session Review – by Jamie Lundy

The initial talk in the Priesthood session was delivered by Quinton L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. He began by warning the priesthood holders (all faithful men in the Church) to avoid rationalizing away the choice of walking a righteous life. In LDS parlance this does not merely mean abiding by the… Read More ›


Two Months To Go!

  President Boyd K. Packer     Mr Packer began his message with his quest for what he calls ‘a personal testimony of the gospel’. He is after religious certainty.

October 2013 General Conference Review, Sunday Morning by John Tancock

 This was my first experience of any Mormon ‘meeting’ in decades. I listened to: ‘to my Grandchildren’ by President Henry B Eyring. I found the emphasis that there is only one plan of happiness ‘to follow all the commandments of God’ strangely ‘heavy’ even in as such a warm family friendly talk as this. The talk… Read More ›


General Conference October 2013, Saturday Afternoon session review, by Vince Mccann

  The Sustaining of Church Officers, Henry B. Eyring There isn’t much to say regarding this short 3 minute section where voting was being done to sustain church offices other than the observation that I doubt any (or at least very few) would be seen opposing in such an environment. I also couldn’t help being… Read More ›


General Conference, October 2013, Saturday Morning Review

Nothing really doctrinal taught anymore, a load of guys being repeatedly told not to look at pornography and so on.
