|Asking Questions Before Others Do|
Jun. 7th, 2012 at 9:50 pm
At what age did you start to question church history? Were you considered on the younger side, right at the point everyone else does, or amongst the late bloomers? What challenges did you have to overcome in your search of knowledge?
I’m on the younger side and started asking when I was 20. Its hard to think about things your friends can’t relate to simply because they’re busy raising/reproducing children and cling onto Sunday teachings as they adjust to being full blown adults. My biggest challenge to overcome is a spouse who doesn’t understand why I’m asking such questions. To him it seems I am looking for the church’s dirty laundry and nothing else.
Luckily I live in a pretty cool ward thanks to a recent split so the Bishop is not my biggest hurdle.
