071 – Shame Sham
Moving on to discussing the 2nd “principle and ordinance of the gospel”, we address the LDS concept of repentance. Of course, we can’t talk about repentance in Mormonism without including its cousin, worthiness. The church has used these twin weapons as task master whip and battering ram to shame members and keep them in-line since its inception. Unfortunately, as with many LDS teachings, it results in untold damage to the church’s membership.
