So i still don’t get the reflexive need that so many Mormons have to loudly and vociferously declare that the Law of Consecration* isn’t communism each and every time the Law of Consecration comes up in a church class—but i’ve come to terms with it as one of those things that will simply always be, whether or not there’s a good reason for it.
So fine, whatever, go ahead and remind everyone that the Law of Consecration isn'’t communism. Knock yourselves out over it.
But please, when you do that, could you also mention that whatever ism it might be, the Law of Consecration also most definitely isn’t capitalism, either?
* Or the United Order. They’re different things,** as i’ve noted before, but yeah, they’re closely enough related that either one fits here.
** Also, the comments on the post linked to there exhibit a most excellent example of what i’m talking about in the main body of today’s post.
