We sit down today and interview Bryce Cook on his new article “What Do We Know of God’s Will For His LGBT Children? An Examination of the LDS Church’s Position on Homosexuality”. We talk at length about good fruit vs bad fruit, doctrine vs policy, where the Church has changed, and what we can hope in. The is ground breaking and it once again asks us to step back and to ask ourselves and reflect on what President Uchtdorf has stated –
Unfortunately, we sometimes don’t seek revelation or answers…because we think we know the answers already.
Brothers and sisters, as good as our previous experience may be, if we stop asking questions, stop thinking, stop pondering, we can thwart the revelations of the Spirit. Remember, it was the questions young Joseph asked that opened the door for the restoration of all things. We can block the growth and knowledge our Heavenly Father intends for us. How often has the Holy Spirit tried to tell us something we needed to know but couldn’t get past the massive iron gate of what we thought we already knew?
