    1898: Additional "Witnesses" of the Book of Mormon Gold Plates | LDS Discussions Ep. 54

    1898: Additional "Witnesses" of the Book of Mormon Gold Plates | LDS Discussions Ep. 54

    In this riveting interview, @nemothemormon and @analyzingmormonism are back to delve into the lesser-known accounts surrounding the plates of the Book of Mormon. Witness testimonies, some published decades after the events, paint a conflicting picture of the plates' appearance, size, and the circumstances under which they were allegedly shown. From the curious case of Josiah Stoll, who claimed to be the first to handle the plates, to Mary Whitmer's visionary encounter with an enigmatic figure, "Brother Nephi," who purportedly showed her the plates, we explore the enduring myths of Mormonism's foundational narrative.

    1897: Mormon LGBT PURGE? Excommunication of 5 Lesbian Couples

    1897: Mormon LGBT PURGE? Excommunication of 5 Lesbian Couples

    Join us today as we discuss the shocking wave of excommunications hitting at least five married lesbian couples in the Mormon Church across the US. These events stand in stark contrast to what we thought was a hopeful shift in welcoming LGBT married couples in the Church.
    Here are a few questions for the Church:
    What happened? Is the right to preserve one's membership intact a privilege reserved only for select LGBT Mormons? How is the Church guiding these decisions? Are divine revelations to local leaders influenced by the affluence of their congregations? Is God giving different revelations depending on the level of backlash anticipated from local members?

    1895: How Credible Were the Book of Mormon's EIGHT Witnesses? LDS Discussions Ep. 53

    1895: How Credible Were the Book of Mormon's EIGHT Witnesses? LDS Discussions Ep. 53

    Were the 8 witnesses to Joseph Smith's golden plates actually credible? Or just gullible relatives caught up in his delusion? Shockingly candid statements from witnesses like Hiram Page and John Whitmer seem to contradict and undermine official LDS teachings about their testimonies. What are the implications of the past witnesses on today’s modern church?

One of the best episodes!

I gained a lot of insight into ethical therapy through this podcast. I have had a lot of distrust in therapist in Utah ever since learning about Jody Hildebrandt. It’s good to know there are good ethical therapist out there.

Mirroring

As a gay Mormon who didn’t leave the church but couldn’t reconcile all my truths, this podcast is a great way to process so much. Not just the gay stuff. I find the analysis thoughtful. Contrary to those who think the podcasters are trying to deceive or are anti-Mormon, it is more like a mirror. You may not like what you see/hear but then go back to your ward and do something about it. Don’t protect wrong in the name of your church or beliefs.
