17. Most churches change focus

I know for instance the Catholic church provides different biblical reading for each service/Mass. Pretty common stuff.

You said: Certainly, just because we do use the Book of Mormon--which seems to cause people of other faiths/people of no faith to verbally go on the attack-- that is what most everyone wants to talk about.

I have read the bible pretty thoroughly. After doing so I came away wondering how anyone can consider such material to be enlightened. I read the Book of Mormon when a couple of teen-age "elders" (you have a penis? you have authority!1!) came to my door to save me. I was even more astounded that any thinking adult could read that and think it in any way enlightened.

The bible is one thing, I mean we are talking iron-age wisdom here so at least the bible has a viable excuse for it's lunacy. The BoM was from the 1800's. And, making it all the more incredible (as in not easy to believe), the angel Moroni dictated the BoM in Elizabethan English! lolz

Yeah, you keep dragging that cross about over the "attacks" you endure for the BoM. Keep believing it's because the BoM is just too fresh, too new, too enlightened for the rest of mankind to "get" so they lash out in their ignorance. Don't you believe for one minute that they think it's an unenlightened outlandish piece of fiction and they think only fools would fall for that. No, don't even give that sort of thing a moment's consideration. You hang in there, you'll probably get your own planet for all the suffering you do for the lord and all!
