If the idea of a physical temple seems right, then maybe God is helping you through them. Leading you to follow Him, through this church, that has a temple.
Thanks for that consideration. That's more than what most critics seem willing to give. I really appreciate your thoughts on that point.
Just know that there are a lot of other gatherings and meetings of people who also believe in Jesus out here, outside of that church - who have so much history and writings of other ways of Christian believing, without that church having to be a part of their faith. Some just follow God and the Spirit, without any man made church, and they just walk, following God.
I believe there are a lot of Christians out there looking for something--who have a strong faith in Jesus Christ. The LDS believe in a universal Atonement, and hope for all of mankind.
What I don't believe is--the Lord's church is "man-made", nor is it void of things like living, mortal apostles and prophets, continuing revelation, heavenly, recorded heavenly appearances, with witnesses--and the temple.
The LDS have all of that in their history--and so did the NT church--which had to endure the hounds of criticism also.
