Today I'll be posing as David, asking questions on the nature of certainty and how anyone can really know anything about "god".
You are speaking live with Katie, who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Information provided in this session is to provide assistance only and is not an official statement of the Church.
Me: Hi - I'm David.
Katie: how are you?
Me: I'm good, how are you?
Katie: I'm doing well, thanks
what prompted you to come on mormon.org?
Me: I have some questions about god in general and about lds specifically
Me: Why do you believe that Mormonism is the right religion?
Katie: what has led you to have questions about God and the church?
Me: I don't see how people can be so certain they're right, and I wonder what's different about them. (By calling it "different" instead of deficient, I'm allowing Katie to think she has an opportunity to tell me about the difference the Holy Ghost makes.)
Katie: great question
David, God has given us some incredible tools so that we can know truth
scriptures and prayer
Me: Do you mean like the rules of logic and our critical thinking skills?
Katie: let me share a little bit with you about the church
yes! Those are also important tools that he has given us
He teaches us many wonderful truths about who we are and His plan for us
and we are invited to read their words
and to pray and ask Him is it is true
God has give us the Bible and in our day he has brought forth the Book of Mormon ("our day" is the 1850s?)
another testament of JEsus Christ
Me: How do you know those are the right holy books?
I have read them abd pondered their teachings
Me: Not trying to be offensive, but when there are so many other religions and religious texts, how do you know which is right?
Katie: and most importantly I have asked God if it is true
sorry, I didn't mean to answer with just because :)
