More than one member of the LDS church has said that it is unloving for me or anybody else to point out the dangers we see in Mormonism. Is that really true?
I would submit that the opposite is true. That it would be unloving not to point out those dangers. Hopefully this little analogy makes my point. If you know that the bridge is out around the next corner, it would be callous and unloving, and possibly even criminal, to let the cars whiz by without trying to stop them. The loving thing is to stand in the middle of the road waving your arms, warning people of the danger ahead.
The problem is that the dangers in Mormonism are not as easily seen as a downed bridge. In fact, most LDS members would vehemently object that there are any dangers in Mormonism. But that’s not really to the point. In the above scenario, assume for a moment that the bridge wasn’t out. I just thought it was. Even if that was the case, the loving thing for me to do would still be to sound the warning. If I truly thought the bridge was out, but I just let you drive by, I would still be acting callously towards you.
I believe that there are many wrong and dangerous teachings in Mormonism. Because I care for the LDS people, I will continue to sound the warning. It’s the only loving thing to do.
