Questioning Mormonism

This website was created by an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in an attempt to help members who love the Gospel but have struggled with their testimony, especially questions regarding Mormon history and Mormon doctrine. This site is not an apologetics site, just a collection of thoughts and experiences to help those who struggle know they are not alone and there is help.

Mormon History

All members of the Church at some time in their lives face moments that test the sincerity and strength of their testimonies. Braving these trials of our faith helps us stand firm in a world that is falling more and more into the depths of confusion. With the advent of the Internet, for example, an uninterrupted avalanche of contradictory opinions and information invades our everyday lives. These contradictions can become disconcerting and paralyzing. -Bishop Gérald Caussé

Mormon History

Too often we approach the gospel like a farmer who places a seed in the ground in the morning and expects corn on the cob by the afternoon. Discipleship is a journey. We need the refining lessons of the journey to craft our character and purify our hearts. By patiently walking in the path of discipleship, we demonstrate to ourselves the measure of our faith and our willingness to accept God’s will rather than ours. -President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
