The information is out there, and with the help of the plethora of books and internet available today you can study yourself out of the cult of Mormonism by learning the truth.
If these posts help someone, anyone, even one person out of the cult... then it's all worth it.
"I believe in honesty. I believe in transparency. I believe that investigators and members deserve to have all of the information on the table to be able to make a fully informed decision as to what the information means to them and how they would like to proceed with it. Anything short of this is an obstruction to the free agency of the investigator and member."
Mormons are the only 'religion' (cough cough) to absolutely BAN their members from learning their own true history. They use a brain washing tactic of repeating from the beginning that if you read or hear anything that scares you into thinking it MIGHT say anything bad about Mormonism or the LDS, then you have hurry and close the internet browser, toss the book, shut down the person talking and walk away! It's called "anti" and they are scared to death of their members learning the truth.
Every other honest religion will tell you study. Take your time and study, learn, research... and NOT only church-approved sources. That's ridiculous! But it's what Mormons are taught. If it's not LDS sanctioned, they aren't to look at it, read it, hear it, or listen.
Up until about 10 years ago LDS Mormons were NOT ALLOWED TO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS. Young Mormons these days are told to call themselves Christians... trying to win over to new converts. But the belief system is absolutely different from even the BASIC belief system of Christianity. Sadly, most Mormons don't even know this... because they are not allowed to learn it.
SO many resources out there to gain knowledge. The CES letter is very well known. And for good reason.
CES Letter is one Latter-Day Saint's honest quest to get official answers from the LDS Church on its troubling origins, history, and practices.
Jeremy Runnells was offered an opportunity to discuss his own doubts with a director of the Church Educational System (CES) and was assured that his doubts could be resolved. After reading Jeremy's letter, the director promised him a response.
No response ever came.
