Update on this blog July 11, 2006

Posted by tired of lies in : Uncategorized , 1 comment so far

I just wanted to update the status of this blog.  After zealously posting my first post below over a month ago, I realized that a lot of passion came out in my writing.  I could tell that my emotions were getting the best of me and I feel I was speaking from passion rather than from a calm, understanding heart.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with passion.  For without passion, then we are all just left with a muted interpretation of real feelings.  But, I do also understand that misdirected passion can lead you off the path that you intended very quickly.

So, to gain a bit of perspective, and to properly understand the hearts and minds of the LDS faithful, I have been attending investigator classes (Institute) at the local ward.  I’ll wait until the investigator series is over prior to posting comments about these classes.  But, I will say that I am totally shocked at the whitewashing that goes on in these classes.  Many of the church doctrines that many outsiders would find unsettling either have a real nice spin to it, or never mentioned at all.

I continue to pray for each person I come in contact with here.  And I realize my obligation as a Christian to speak the truth of Christ.  I pray that the Lord continues to educate me on His will, and His Passion.  I pray that Lord strengthens my mind, softens my heart, and provides me the right words to say so that His true desire be known to all involved at these classes.
