Agnostic atheist spiritual dating
It claims to be an organization that is directly led by God in a way that no other organization is.
In considering these questions, I find myself starting with two basic beliefs: 1) spiritual experiences can be valid, and 2) all humans, no matter what fancy position they might have, are deeply fallible and make mistakes sometimes.
The Mormon circles in which I am active have been rocked in recent weeks by the stories about Joseph L.
Bishop, the former MTC president who has been accused by two women of sexual abuse during his time in that position.
I’m guessing that will not sound unreasonable to most believers. I don’t think it’s fair to play the fallibility card, to fall back on the undeniable truth that we’re all only human, when grappling with situations like this, and then turn around and say that it’s nearly outside the realm of possibility that church leaders could be mistaken in proclaiming the will of God in other situations.
I suppose you could argue that those are in some way different categories, that God doesn’t intervene to let people know that they’re trusting the wrong humans and are calling predators to serve in positions of authority, but nonetheless ensures that leaders are teaching only correct doctrine and enacting only divinely authorized policies for the church.
