I realize that while a significant portion of my readers belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints (aka. LDS or Mormon) that there are many of you who read this blog who are from other faiths. I think this is SO wonderful. It is always good to be able to share religious beliefs and values with one another. No one has a monopoly on truth and the more we learn to respect and understand different viewpoints, the closer we come to understanding real truth.
So, no matter what faith you are... Welcome and I am so glad you read this.
I've been debating lately if I should try to keep my posts more general so that they appeal to a more diverse audience. Yet, as I've attempted to write some more "general" posts I've realized that my LDS faith is such an integral part of who I am and how I look at the world that leaving it out makes my writing hallow and unauthentic. Still, I realize that I often write from an LDS viewpoint and use religious terms, jargon or doctrinal concepts that may not be familiar to people who don't understand LDS theology.
In light of this I've decided to have an "Ask a Mormon a Question... Any Question" post in which you can ask me, a faithful, life long member, any questions you have about Mormons or Mormon theology. Just post a question as a comment and I will respond back to your comment as another comment in this post. That way if someone else has already asked the question you want to know then you can just read my response. You can ask as many questions as you want. I especially hope that if in any of my posts, future or previous, I talk about a concept or use words that you don't understand that you will come back to this post (I'll put a button on my side bar that will link to it) and ask me to explain it.
I am really excited about this but please remember that ALL comments are moderated on this blog and I reserve the right to not publish questions that are derogatory or rude.
What do you want to know?
