  1. The doctrine of the Book of Mormon is 99% biblical. It seems that LDS doctrine started to diverge strangely because after the creation of the BoM, Joseph Smith had no more use for it.

    • It is a strange thing, isn’t it?

      Especially after going through so much effort to produce it in the first place.

  2. Thanks for your presentation. Therein lies the reason that I, after 35 years of membership in the church, found that I could no longer accept the Church’s soteriology. It doesn’t save! The church’s way can never bring the peace that passes all understanding. It’s a five diamond self improvement system that takes itself so seriously that it proposes that by it’s methods a person may
    ” merit mercy” and “earn the reward” from God.

    • Isn’t it strange that Mormons as a rule are in a state of limbo when it comes to any idea of what kingdom they will be inheriting in the Great Beyond?

      There really is no way set forth to know or even have much of a clue.

      Unless, of course, you happen to have had your calling and election made sure.

      And we don’t talk about that in polite company.

      ;^)

    • Greg, very well said and probably exactly right. It would be a very interesting experiment to select a stake and secretly give every member their second anointing, then monitor the level of commitment. What exactly would happen to attendance, tithing, callings, etc??

  3. RFM,

    We ought not to omit the reference of line upon line scriptural reference. However, if we promoted instant change of heart theology, would we be a better people for having this mindset?

    It feels nice to be instantly forgiven, but then again that rarely happens in family settings. You got to earn your stripes and increase that love and trust account and make sure you keep a positive balance.

    • LOL! I am sure that is true in most family settings, David.

      Wouldn’t it be nice to imagine a family setting where we could be forgiven immediately and completely?

      Oh, never mind!
