I’m reposting an amazing response by a wonderful blogger Sheldon Kent to the Mormon Corporation’s latest attempt to stifle real rational thought & questioning.
Sheldon analyses the Mormon article from the latest March 2015 Ensign magazine & exposes the clever mental tricks intended to keep Mormons ‘just believing’, instead of discovering the truth.
Here’s an example from Sheldon’s blog:
Doubts do not destroy faith, hope, or the family. Lying does. Lying about the history of the church destroys faith and hope. A repugnant culture of being dubious of anyone who even attempts to question the the church, its doctrines, or its leaders destroys faith and hope. Doubting hurts no one, unless the things that the person is doubting are truth claims that have been revealed to not be truths at all.
