My Thoughts

I have been a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have also been a strong defender of the church. I created the site: lightplanet.com in 1995 to answer the criticisms that were being leveled against the church. But I have also been able to observe changes that have occurred in the church. My 1970 "Teachings of the Prophets" class at BYU taught that I needed to listen to the Spirit of God to know when teachings from our leaders were from God, now that same class simply teaches that you only need to "Follow the Prophet" which means the current president of the church.

Recently I have come to realize that the scriptures can indeed be read literally and that we as a church have not accepted and followed what we have been given. This site is my witness of testimony of how I see things now and what I believe the scriptures are telling me. I am pleased to have been able to participate in several events that have provided me with additional insight. My hope is that the reader will understand that my desire is to only  further understand and share the truth.

The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth. (D&C 93:36)
