If we are to follow the Mormon creed to seek out “anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy” or to accept “one of the grand fundamental principles of 'Mormonism'... to receive truth, let it come from whence it may” then we'll need to develop the ability to prayerfully cherry-pick.
I participated in a Mormon Matters discussion on the wrestle between obedience and conscience with Mormon Matters host Dan Wotherspoon, Jana Riess, and Eric D. Huntsman. It was a pleasure to discuss with them the challenges and opportunities we have to engage in this wrestle as we seek to follow the spirit while also engaging in the church.
By looking at the Book of Revelation through the lens of how to overcome trials and the wonderful promises for those who do overcome, it is transformed from an obligatory “doom and gloom” reference guide to a book full of rich promises and a guide on how to overcome trials in life.
In Mormonism, covenants anchor us to Christ and set us free to live our faith rather than chain us to dogmatism.
