After reading the garments thread, some things came to mind. Firstly, one is considered officially “active” according to their church attendance and as I recall you don’t need to attend every Sunday, just once a month or so. Secondly, when one is baptized and confirmed they are known as members of the church until they ask for their name to be removed from the church records or they are excommunicated for an extremely grievous sin. It seems that many members have different definitions of what it means to be active in the LDS church and what it means to be a member of the LDS church. Should we keep our definitions of activity and membership in line with the official church definitions or is it acceptable to hold people to a much higher standard in order in claim activity and membership?
