In select passages of Joseph Smith’s writings are the makings of a new, extraordinary religion. Unlike traditional monotheistic belief systems, with their complex layers of doctrines, rituals, and practices, the religion of experience makes no claims and affirms no premises. Its basis is the autonomy of the individual as manifested in the fundamentals of human experience. It refers only to the irresolvability of bipolar relationships such as true/false and good/evil and the fundamental independence of the individual person.
