Mormons, along with Jews, were named to be pretty smart about religion -- right behind atheists. If this were not true, then everyone is really sleeping in church. We joke about it and we actually do it sometimes, but the revolving door of four years through the Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon, Church History/Doctrine and Covenants plus Seminary/Institute has got to be doing something don't you think?
If it's not amounting to something, let's just set up cots in the Cultural Halls throughout the Church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday-Saints, that is) or just fold up the tent (pulling up the stakes) haha, haha and trudge off into the night.
The Church is true. I can't imagine any other Church getting people to sit through three hours of of those manuals year after year. This is spoken with solid testimony with only a tiny bit of sarcasm slapped in. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Heavenly Father. I'm sincerely thankful.
