At Life on Gold Plates, a summary of Michael Ash's FAIR Conference presentation on "Shaken Faith Syndrome." Seems like a nice set of suggestions for anyone whose faith is shaken, whether LDS or from some other denomination. But what I really liked was the quote from Joseph F. Smith reminding us that all are welcome in the LDS Church, not just the doctrinal purists:
Our people are given the largest possible latitude for their convictions, and if a man rejects a message that I may give to him but is still moral and believes in the main principles of the gospel and desires to continue in his membership in the church, he is permitted to remain and he is not unchurched. It is only those who on rejecting a revelation rebel against the church and withdraw from the church at their own volition.
This is a nice quote to keep handy for when you meet one of those LDS do-gooders who think it's their purpose in life to apply doctrinal litmus tests to their fellow Saints and, for those who don't pass, try to escort them out of the Church. I wish they'd just leave that sort of thing to bishops and stake presidents — people who are actually assigned that task and approach it with humility and soberness rather than pride and misguided zeal. And lest one of these well-intentioned zealots thinks Joseph F. Smith's view is dated and no longer represents the thinking of LDS leaders, here's a more recent quote from Elder Holland, noting that even the seemingly foundational belief in the historicity of the Book of Mormon does not justify trying to push a fellow Mormon out of the Church:
I think you'd be as aware as I am that that we have many people who are members of the church who do not have some burning conviction as to its origins, who have some other feeling about it that is not as committed to foundational statements and the premises of Mormonism. But we're not going to invite somebody out of the church over that any more than we would anything else about degrees of belief or steps of hope or steps of conviction.
