The Saturday morning General Conference didn’t provide any new insight into Mormonism for those hoping to hear something they hadn’t heard before. However, it did give a false sense of worldly hope to those who believe the Church needs to loosen its grip on male dominance.

A Response to Melissa’s Article
This morning I woke up to see that Melissa’s article has ruffled a few feathers. The site that took issue with her article is Mormon Apologetics Research Studies. You can read their review here:
Now one of the authors for that site is a gentleman by the name of Timothy Berman who by the way has visited this site a few times and well, he got banned from posting because of his comments.
When you read the responses you’ll see why Melissa wrote the article. Melissa’s article is here:
For the past five years I’ve prayed for the salvation of those who are trapped in the Mormon religion. I’ve thought about what it would be like for the prophet to get up and deliver a message like the one below. To call all the church members to repentance, and to say that the church is going to abandon all its past sins, arrogance, and beliefs for Jesus and from here on after the members are to put their complete trust in Him alone.

General Conference April 2012
No Ordinary Blessing
Every faithful Mormon waits with bated breath to hear what message the men who they view as prophets, seers, and revelators of God, might have for them that day. I can’t tell you what a thrill they get to hear these men speak, as they hang on every word spoken.

General Conference October 2011, Part 2
Matthew 24:36; “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
Many of the conferences are filled with the same mundane message that seems as if they’ve just been recycled with a few things changed to fit in with the times. This time around wasn’t much different from that scenario with the exception of a couple things that stood out for me.

General Conference October 2011
Twice a year the Mormon Church holds conferences to hear the prophet and other leaders whom the Lord has called to lead the Church. They give inspirational messages and sometimes new prophecies from the Lord, although the latter hasn’t happened since June of 1978.
General Conference April 2011
Twice a year General Conference is held at the headquarters of the Mormon Church in Salt Lake City.
General Conference is a series of talks given by LDS leaders throughout the week leading up to the actual weekend of General Conference with the apex of all meetings taking place on Sunday. It’s a time for members to vote on important issues like sustaining a new prophet or apostle or even voting in a new prophecy from the Lord.
As I’ve listened to the original talk Mr. Packer gave during the Sunday morning session of General Conference I really didn’t see anything a faithful member of the church could be opposed to, yet and the church has decided to revise his talk in the text version as to not offend some of the members and non-members of the Mormon Church.
You may have heard about some of the supposed “homophobic” comments he made during his talk. I have to come to Mr. Packer’s defense here a little when I say that his talk wasn’t strictly about homosexuality. He talked about how anyone can overcome their addictions and inclinations to pornography, same-sex attraction, or any immoral behavior through the Mormon priesthood.
Below is just one section of the talk that was changed, this one of the more controversial parts of his message.
