I know many have assumed that I left Mormonism for any number of reasons. So to set the record straight:
I did NOT leave because of any unresolved sin. My life is still up to very high standards.
Nor did I leave over Word of Wisdom problems. Although Jesus said, “It’s not what goes in your mouth that makes you unclean, it’s what comes out of your mouth.” Matthew 15:10
I did not have my feelings hurt.
People may have erroneously assumed that I must have had marriage or family problems. Wrong again.
Others have said I don’t understand the “meat” of LDS doctrine. But, I don’t think ANY true thinker could understand it.
Maybe I’ve lost my testimony? In what, God? NO!! In Jesus? NO!! In the Bible? NO!!
Or that I’ve been listening to Satan or reading anti-Mormon literature. OK, if you want to call Mormon Doctrine or the Bible, anti-Mormon literature??
Or that perhaps I’ve become closed-minded? On the contrary, my mind has never been so exercised.
Or that I just need to fast and pray. I have done SO much praying for truth and strength to confront the truth–the whole truth and God did help me.
Lastly, people have said maybe I lost the Holy Spirit. Not at all. He now dwells in me; he is my life line and my promise for heaven.
