It is interesting you write that there is nothing to fear from truth. I affirm that, when used in its correct context, (the scripture meaning knowledge of God will set one free) and in the face of Christ (and having relationship with Him and believing and acting on what He says) and His love and Grace, then there is nothing to fear, although at many times it can seem that there is.
Truth here (as you quote John 8 v 32) is a very different thing from a secular use of the word truth.
There is a heck of a lot to fear for someone who is tbm starting to look at exactly what Mormon doctrine is and who will, with integrity, work through what they are going to do with all this factual data and information about the false and unhelpful claims of Joseph Smith.
And that journey can and is done by us all and very well with or without Christ.
Because a life worth living and living well is not built upon a foundation that is easily proven to be dodgy. Respect yourselves.
So I say to our Board readers, yes, there may well be natural fear and concern for what one may find when one examines the LDS church doctrines but what one gains when one does face up to that is going to be worth it a million times over, and you will not be alone. You will get there. And if that journey leads you to Christ then that, from my perspective is beautiful, and if it does not , then that is OK because you are a powerful human being walking your journey. And you are brave and strong and the future waits............
We all have our own journeys. Celebrate yours.
