Yes, I am a lonely Christian here.  I feel there is no need to be saved from anything.  And attending a church that denies communal communion, birth control, marriage within the pulpit, and personal study aside from the body isn't really much different than mormonism, in my humble opinion.

Hello everyone,

 

I'm new to this site and consider myself a believer in Christianity, but have not formally joined any particular church yet (l am leaning towards Catholicism though).

 

I'm wondering what kept people here interested in Christianity, since so many exMormons seem to abandon belief all together? How many of you had some experience in other Christian traditions before leaving Mormonism? For how many was the study of historical Christianity part of the reason why you left the LDS church?

Infallible or inerrant is a semantics game that's laughable.  Never failing, which is rather easy to disprove, or, doing no wrong.  I could play this game for years, but a major point of mine is that fundamentalists don't really want to know core truth.  They want the emotionalism of somebody telling them they have to be saved in order to avoid hell.  They want to be BETTER than others, because somebody with limited knowledge of Bible matters tells them they are ready for the rapture.  They need that reassurance that comes with functioning just as mormons do.  With somebody else feeding them spoonfuls of truth so they can feel they've got it made.

"Be still my soul" is a great Hymn. Not sure if it is uniquely Mormon but I have not seen it in other Christian Hymnals.

Not a hymn, but a song we taught in primary.  "As I Have Loved You, Love One Another."  I think it fits all Christian denominations.

How many "temple recommends" do we ever read that Jesus handed out? WWJD?

Falcon, Someone has obviously told you that the differences in interpretation don't deal with doctrine.  My version:  I disagree.

I could get into a long explanation of the term "inerrant" but let me do a short version of the concept from a Christian perspective on the Bible. The Christian claim for inerrancy of the Bible is for the original "autographs" not the copies. So what about the copies as far as the accuracy of representing the autographs? When the textual copies are compared with one another, the number of differences in the text are very small. The differences that are present deal mainly with syntax, grammar type things and doesn't have an effect on doctrine. That's the short version.

Infallible:  Incapable of error.  Inerrant:  To do no wrong.  My interpretations.  Mox nix which one you pick.  Neither one is correct, unless you've had time to research every single Bible that's out there, and you understand the meanings and concepts of Greek and Hebrew.  Fundy preachers take what they want to take, mainly to get people "saved."  I remember an interesting conversation I had with a Baptist preacher.  I asked him why so many of the women thought it appropriate to show up to church sans bra, see through tops, nipples erect, thongs showing, and waving their arms up and down like they were hypnotized.  He told me none of those things mattered, that he just needed to get them "saved", and then worry about the rest.  Well, the horny dude never did worry about the rest, and when it came time for the teens to go to camp, boys and girls together, they held a class to teach the young men how to avert their eyes from scanty bikinis.  By this time I was in a WTF mode, and already being picked on in Sunday School class for having a brain.

Kate, If you don't want to have disturbing thoughts about religion, just pack it in for the whole ball of wax and decide that the underlying message from any of them should be love of one's neighbor.  That's pretty much it in a nutshell anyway, for those of us involved in a Christian path, although mine tends to weave along lines of universalism with Christ's life as a pattern.  Bottom line, you don't have to do anything to prove yourself to God.  You don't even have to believe in him..  Just try to be loving to others.
