The ‘Apostasy’ of Joseph Smith and Terry D. Kester Terry asks: Am I not blinded unless there is shadow within the light that guides me? Our church has truth, so why does it increasingly hide the truth? Can it be that as our church grows it becomes more and more afraid of the truth? Can it be that, as the Church encounters more and more diverse souls, it, in institutional reflex, turns tradition into doctrine and fable into dogma? Can it be that we are establishing ‘infallibility” where there should be only searching? I spent twenty years as a professional sinner – Joseph spent only ten. So what’s the problem?
