Ep 594 – Abraham-Hicks and The Biggest Missing Piece

What if Joseph Smith were teaching his teachings today?  Maybe they’d sound a little bit like Abraham Hicks.

The eternal nature of intelligences.  The eternal progression of man.  The idea that as man is god once was and as god is man may become.   Spiritual gifts, the power of faith, that as a man thinketh so is he, the worth of a soul is great, man is that he might have joy, there must needs be opposition in all things but that all sins are wiped clean by a loving god and that all these things shall give thee experience.

But there are some really horrendous “oppositions” out there.  The Problem of Evil anyone?

Glenn is joined by Tom and Kristy and a few Patreon supporters to discuss.

Ep 593 – No Crime in Sin: An Interview with the Fearless Kristy Johnson

Glenn and Tom sit down with Kristy Johnson to discuss her documentary “No Crime in Sin,” which tells the story of Kristy’s sexual abuse at the hands of her CES Leader and BYU Teacher father; how the Mormon church swept it all under the rug; how Kristy and two of her siblings confronted their father 30 years after the fact, and what this has all meant for Kristy and her siblings today.   Kristy shares her healing process and how it now feels to live a life free of fear.

No Crime in Sin” is streaming now on Amazon Prime.

The extended easter egg clip of Abraham-Hicks can be viewed here.

Ep 592 – Words Shmurds: Guilt and Empathy Revisited

Glenn, Tom, and Matt are joined by 7 or 8 listeners to discuss guilt and empathy.

Ep 591 – Guilty Not Guilty

What is Guilt?  What is Shame?  What is Empathy?  How do all of these things affect us?  It’s time to evaluate where we stand. This episode includes 30 min of new material and a throwback to IOT’s 2nd episode: Guilt, a panel discussion between Tom, Randy, Bob, Matt, and Glenn that was originally published on Aug 30, 2012.

Join us for a live “what do we all think about this now” discussion on Wednesday, August 21 at 10pm ET  on our Patreon page.  Sign up to support the podcast on Patreon here if you are interested.

Ep 590 – Seven Years of Infanity

Seven years.  Six Hundred-Fifty-plus episodes.  Six Million-plus downloads.  Four Million-plus listeners.  Let’s pause to celebrate what we have done and listen back to some of the great contributions from Randy, Scott, Bob, Matt, Tom, Glenn, John, Jake, Alison, and Heather.  Enjoy!

Ep 589 – Three Things to Change about the Mormon Church

Another Jeremy Goff smackdown, and another exemplary satirically celestial appearance of the one and only (if only that were accchttually true…) Stephen Erastus Knudsen III — the mold from which Jeremy Goff has been cut.  Enjoy!

Ep 588 – Brigham Young, Blood Atonement, and the True Love of Christ

What do Brigham Young and Charles Manson have in common? All you need is love — AKA shedding a wicked person’s blood so that they can pay for their sins and be exalted in the highest degree of the Celestial Kingdom. Cuz that is what Jesus REALLY meant when he said “love your neighbor as yourself.” It’s right there in the Journal of Discourses. Straight from the mouth of a prophet of God. Take a listen.

Ep 587 – Mo-Side Out

What if the emotions from Pixar’s “Inside Out” got together in a Mormon-formed brain that experienced a faith crisis? Which emotion dominates in a pre, mid, or post-faith crisis mind? Those were the questions we playfully explored in our Sunstone panel on Aug 1, 2015 at the University of Utah. Listen in as Glenn narrates and the audience chooses exactly what will become of Joy (Jake), Sadness (Scott), Disgust (Matt), Fear (John), and Anger (Randy).

Ep 586 – Why People Leave the Mormon Church

Glenn reads (and responds to) a Jeremy Goff blog post about why people leave THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS, and then revisits a classic Infants’ panel discussion “50 Ways To Leave the Church” with Tom, Randy, Jake, and John.  Enjoy.

Ep 585 – Jeremy Goff Smackdown: Why Nephi Killing Laban Should Be a Totally Awesome Testimony Builder

When is murder not actually murder?  Jeremy Goff sets the record straight once again.  You just gotta hear it to believe it.
