At the Religion News Service a former Mormon outlined the process ex-Mormons go through as they embrace their ex-Mormon world and deal with the effects of a controlling religious system. This is an interesting but solid read.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.“
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
Jeremiah 17:9-10 KJV
Washington, D.C. Mormon Temple
When I was in college I looked into Mormonism. Early on in this blog I wrote about my journey into and away from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It took me a long time to distance myself from that experience. And since that period of life in college from time to time I see articles or stories of people who processed or worked through their past in Mormonism. Sometimes its from people who had a long experience or in other cases its from someone who converted and ran into problems. The other day at the Religion News Service I saw an article that gave me pause. Its from a non-practicing Mormon who is trying to move forward. The article deals with what Ex-Mormons have experienced as they have rejected and moved away from Mormonism. I found this fascinating and just want to add this to the blog. You can read Mette Ivie Harrison’s guest post called, “The five doctrines of ex-Mormonism.”
