HOW SECURE IS YOUR TESTIMONY?

How secure is your testimony?
.
I have been asked several times to read anti literature—especially when it comes to Joesph Smith.
.
I always get the questions, ”did you know this, or did you know that he did that?” Well, of course, I’m aware because people like you have told me my entire life!
.
So, to those individuals, I thank you for saving me time reading material that is unnecessary.
.
Now, my question to you—Before you read anything contrary to the doctrine of the Church, have you been faithful in daily prayer & study?
.
Have you read/watched every piece of literature from ALL the Prophets & Apostles of Christ (past and present)?
.
Do you pray and fast sincerely? Then ask the Lord which of the material you should read—gathered material from a disgruntled activist, or the Book of Mormon and content from the above mentioned?
.
”From time to time, members of the Church are deceived and led astray because they have no substantial foundation in faith, and lack knowledge of the gospel. Skillful deceivers, under these conditions, prey upon the weak and destroy the little measure of faith which they possess.” JFS-Answers GQ
.
Study the material that brings you joy and happiness.
.
I’m not about to read or listen to something when I’m told,” This will tell you why the Church is fake, why Joseph is a false Prophet, why the Book of Mormon is evil.”
.
That’s like hearing, ”Here you go, fill your soul with anger, and learn how you’ve been lead astray for years and years. This will help you lose all hope and faith. This will make you contend and argue the rest of your life with those who have a testimony of the things you once had.”
.
I’m not sorry, either. I don’t owe apologies—until I have read every last book, article, or journal from ALL Prophets, ALL the Apostles, I won’t entertain blasphemy from someone who hasn’t done the same.
.
I ask, have you read the entire Standard Works, 7 Volumes of Church History, 27 Books of the Joseph Smith Papers, the Bruce R. McConkie’s 6 series of The Millenial Messiah, Jesus the Christ, or the Miracle of Forgiveness? General Conference talks?
.
Are you engaged in fast, prayer, temple attendance? Hear Him. He won’t mislead you.
