Ask a Mormon a Question

by Rusty Lindquist on January 25, 2011 · 0 comments

As I posted here “Researching Mormonism – a Lutheran Bishop’s advice“, Krister Stendahl gives us three rules for examining another religion.  The first and foremost rule is that when you are trying to understand another religion, you should ask the adherents of that religion, and not its enemies.

His words inspired me to create this page – allowing you to ask me any question you might, so that you can hear an answer directly from a Mormon.

As you’ll see by the disclaimer at the top of my blog, everything I say is simply my opinion and interpretation of doctrine, for official doctrine you can visit www.lds.org.  But, I will give you my honest opinions, and I will base them on scripture and doctrine to the best of my ability.

If I don’t know the answer to your question, then I’ll endeavor to get you an answer. 

Since I intend to keep this present at all times, I’ve created an “Ask a Mormon” page (click here).  All you have to do is type in your question in the comments at the bottom of the page.  I don’t moderate them.  If the question seems genuine, I’ll answer it in a dedicated post.  If it’s not genuine, or if your purpose seems to simply be to argue, disrupt, or be disrespectful, don’t bother – I’ll delete it and move on.

But if you’re someone who genuinely wants to know what Mormons believe about something, just ask.  But don’t ask here – go to the page.  Please reserve comments on this post to the endeavor as a whole, and not for specific questions.

Thanks,
Rusty

Graet Idea! I believe, we as a csociety, have fallen away from asking questions to understand what we do not.. The Socratic method, I Love it!
