HAND OUT INDEX

Here are the handouts we have had time to enter in so far (newest ones are at the top so you don't have to go hunting for them):

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have long studied the purpose of life. I have finally come to a conclusion as to what the "TRUE PURPOSE OF LIFE" is. It is not provoing to God that we can be good by living the commandments. It is not seeking a salvation we EARN. I have learned that Salvation comes as a jouirney that we learn not a destination we arrive at. This is a handout I made with the references for that concept.
Developing a DISPOSITON to do good!

There seems to be a movement within the church by some members to press the General Authorities to make policy changes regarding Gay members of the church. As a part of that movement questions have been asked as to why Gay people could not be married in the temple. Here is an article I wrote that poses some questions about that issue.
Questions for LDS-LGBT members

There are many members of the LDS church who have decided to leave the church. Reasons are sometimes differences of opinion with local leaders, difference of opinion on doctrinal or policy issues with the church, being offended by someone, or many other personal reasons. I wrote a little list of questions for someone making that decision to read that will hopefully cause them to see that might not be a wise decision.

We too must have an "ATONEMENT" like experience
in each of our lives to refine us and perfect us.
What is our part in the Atonement

Satan wanted to take away our free agency so there would be no sin.
Then he would not be required to go to the Garden of Gethsemane to offer
himself as a sacrifice for our sins. He was not willing to pay that price.
Understanding the relationship between the Atonement and Free Agency
