So, coming up something on the Mormons. I let some little Elders come for a visit and failed to get answers for any of my questions. All I got was: That's a really great/awesome question, and a well timed side step. I really wonder if they were sincere about the great question, we love it that you have so many questions thing. Just answer my questions, I promise I will ask them again if you don't. The skeptigirl is totally dogged.
Here were my main questions I did not get answers for:
1. How central, in fact, is family to one's salvation? From the church's promotional material it seem the central feature, other than Jesus.
2. How do eternal families work logistically as good mormons go through multiple generations?
3. General jumbled question about the nature of Mormon heaven as it turns out I misunderstood a few things.
4. If the Book of Mormon complements the Bible is the book of Mormon truly necesary? Asnwer: It is necesary, it adresses different things than the Bible and clears up confusions. I was not convinced of its necesity as I am able to workthrough the disparities just fine and they did not elaborate on the rest.
5. Why is the Mormon Church necesary if salvation essentially happens between man and God?
They said most of these answers will be revealed as they explain the plan of salvation. I hope they answer them because there is no way I am reading the Book of Mormon because and so it came to pass it is so badly written I am ready to hang myself after reading one chapter. I have tried. So in conclusion, they better answer and not keep side stepping or I may have to get severe. I hate people side stepping my questions.
Over all the boys were very nice and I look foreward to chatting with them next time.
