Unbelief/Doubting – Mormon Quotes

Life and Teachings of James Faust, pg. 281; When a member expresses his private doubts or unbelief as a public chastisement of the leadership or the doctrine of the Church, or as a confrontation with those also seeking eternal light, he has entered upon sacred ground. Those who complain about the doctrine or leadership of the Church but who lack the faith or desire to keep God’s commandments risk separating themselves from the divine source of learning. They do not enjoy the same richness of the Spirit that they might enjoy if they proved their sincere love of God by walking humbly before Him, by keeping His commandments, and by sustaining those He has appointed to lead the Church. (“The Abundant Life,” Ensign, Nov. 1985, 8.).” (Underline emphasis mine.)

Mark 9:24And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

Those who doubt or question aren’t separating themselves from learning.  The Church wants to call it “entering on sacred ground” but isn’t that what is our goal?  Separating ourselves from divine learning is a lie and in fact do enjoy the best of the Holy Spirit’s presence all the time instead of the wishy-washy Holy Spirit of the Mormon Church.
