Most of the people who come to my blog are Mormons, but there are some that aren’t. Â I have been surprised that my 3-year old post on the Trial of Joseph’s Assassins has suddenly developed a spirited discussion. Â I want to keep that post on topic, so I have decided to move some of the off-topic questions to a new post where anyone (especially non-Mormons, but Mormons) are welcome to ask questions as well. Â There are no topics off limits here, but I will not tolerate insults and bad behavior. Â Now, here is the relevant information you should know.
This post is a place to ask respectful questions. Â It is not a place to attack. Â You may ask controversial questions. Â I may refer you to other posts where I have already addressed the question. Â I am an active, believing member of the LDS Church, but I am not a spokesman, and my positions may not be things you would hear in Sunday School or officially endorsed by the Church. Â Be sure to specify if you want MY opinion, or the OFFICIAL Church position. Â (These are often the same, but not necessarily.) Â I’m not really interested in rehashing the same old debates about Trinity vs Godhead, Grace vs Works, and some of those arguments that Evangelicals love to debate with Mormons that are repeated ad nauseum. Â But if you really have a question about those, I will address those issues. Don’t be surprised if my positions are not what you would normally hear from a Mormon. Â I am a heretic, after all, so I do have both orthodox and unorthodox beliefs. Â If you are not sure whether my answer is orthodox, just ask me.
I am going to move some of the off-topic posts here where they better fit.
