Would have been more clear if I'd have used "disagrees with" rather than "disavow(s)" and etc,

Sorry for that ...

Something that has been on my mind for a long time was how promises can be made but not kept. Something we all have to remember (and I am constantly being reminded of) is promises from God are on His time-line and not ours. The eternal scheme of things is the real thing that any Apostle of the Lord has in his sights and not just this life.

Also, we all have to remember (again) that people are only human and imperfect. So whether the congregations are ignoring those members who have same-sex attractions (which is deplorable to me that those members would even go so far as to ignore them) or people are outraged or people follow their feelings, we are not perfect. We ALL have room for improvement, and that INCLUDES members of the Church. That also includes the Apostles and the Prophet. Even Moses couldn't live in the promised land due to disobeying God, and Peter denied Christ three times.

One more thing: No one ever said that gay PEOPLE were made by the devil. PEOPLE were created by God, but TEMPTATION and SIN is from the devil.
