1. Some think the Bible leaves too many questions about theology.
2. Some think LDS revelation answers the divisions that evangelical denominations had among themselves about theology. I ask myself, “How big and fundamental were the divisions about God?”
3. And then some think LDS scriptures only created more questions and confusion about theology with the belief of God(s) and Goddess(es).
The King James Bible declares propositions. Conservative evangelicals derive belief from those propositions. Yet so do LDS. Dan Peterson has some ideas. Blake Ostler has some ideas. Kevin Barney has some ideas.
Based on the King James Version, I have a solid idea what to believe and trust about God. But in 2009, I have no idea, no idea really, what the LDS Church believes in common consent about LDS Heavenly Father and LDS Heavenly Mother and all the other Gods and Goddesses. And yet isn’t this the heart of religion?
This ought to be the biggest discussion in 2009. Blake Ostler likes to discuss details. Kevin Barney likes to discuss details. And I wonder if the 2009 LDS Prophet and Apostles (Sent Ones) by God like to discuss details. Do they honestly like the KJV details about God? Blake’s details about God? Kevin’s details about God? Or their own ideas?
I am not “Bored in Vernal”. I am “Confused in Ammon”.
We need a new conference in the I-15 Corridor.
