ESSENTIAL READING: Because Truth Matters!   Leave a comment

Chris Tolworthy’s “The Church is True, The Church is Not True!” ~

(This is a great place to start because Chris addreses both sides of the arguments. Chris was a Faithful Branch President & Mormon Apologist when he created “Why Prophets?”, which puts the case in favour of the Church’s truth claims. After Chris had his epiphany he created the “The Church is Not True!”, putting the opposite case!)

Why I left the Mormon Church by Tyler Young:

(Tyler Young wrote this amazingly thorough essay detailing the issues which led to his exit from the Church)

John Dehlin’s wonderfully comprehensive presentation on ‘Why People Leave the LDS Church’:

(It’s a few years old now so doesn’t address the ‘Proposition 8’ issues, which has caused many members to reconsider their faith. Still very thorough & presented by a faithful member with concerns for why members are leaving the Church in ever-increasing numbers)
