How strong is your faith?


How strong is your faith?
.
Do you dictate your faith or do you let others call the shots for you?
.
I have heard a lot and seen a lot of individuals, couples, and family members who have left the church because they feel betrayed and believe the leaders of the church have kept the truth from them.
.
Again, I ask, how strong is your faith?
.
Do you study the gospel frequently on your own or do you study the disgruntled member’s research paper more?
.
How often have you read and STUDIED the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, and the Bible? Be honest with yourself.
.
How often did you pray to know the truth of The Book of Mormon?
.
What convinced you it was true?
.
What convinced you that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ?
.
What convinced you to get baptized and receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost?
.
What convinced you to serve a mission (if you did).
.
What convinced you to take out covenants in the Holy Temple of God?
.
What convinced you to be sealed to your spouse for time and all eternity?
.
What convinced you to live year’s and year’s and year’s as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?
.
Was it all peer pressure? Were you not ever true to yourself? Have you always let others persuade you to do what they do? Have you never been able to stand on your own two feet and make extremely crucial decisions, especially ones that pertain to your eternal salvation?
.
Now, as you’ve read research papers from disgruntled members and heard hateful messages from a loved one or friend, what convinced you to believe them?
.
Was it the same spirit of God that convinced you Joseph Smith was a true prophet?
.
Was it the same spirit that was with you during your temple recommend interviews?
.
Was it the same spirit that convinced you the Book of Mormon was true?
.
Did you make the same effort for years to pray about the anti-doctrine as much as you studied the Gospel Doctrine? I would hope you took the same procedures if you believe God answers prayers.
.
Do you really believe God mislead you for year’s and year’s with blasphemy?
.
God does not lie— Do you believe in an honest and loving God?
.
Hear Him!
