Not quite sure what you mean here. I appreciate the truth…and whether I believe Mormonism is or not the truth, is not the point, the point is whether or not the church is clear on what the have taught and what they teach…and I say they used to be, but today, unless one really wants to understand basic LDS thought, they had better go to anti sites like this one to get the truth, and that is what is sad from a members point of view. It is similar to BYU professors having to go to the Tanners to get sources for Mormon History, after the church shut down the History department because people were getting the truth.Yeah, it's churches teaching. I won't deny that. But that doesn't mean they teach soup to nuts on the subject.
Certainly, you can appreciate the simplicity in basic concepts taught to children, that comes as a guideline as the understanding matures.
The problem is when we make postulations on simple truths and then declare them doctrine. Even the temple teaches not to accept "philosophies of men mingled with scripture."
Maybe the problem isn’t really with ex-members like Mag’s and I, maybe it is with those that claim to know the truth, and claim to be your leaders, yet hide or water down the truth that should be challenged. All I have done is quote LDS teachings and teachers Aaron, yet I am the one that is looked down on.
Please ponder on this, and not for me.
