“They taught me to use feeling, instead of my reasoning brain. … As I taught at BYU, we taught our college students to use their reasoning brains in biology, and in education and sociology. But when it came to faith, you follow the Mormon prophet blindly, and you rely on your feelings. And the better you feel about something — the more emotional it makes you, the more you cry — they say that’s how the Holy Spirit tells you it’s true. Only, that there were two sources for information. I didn’t know that demonic forces could also make you feel those kind of feelings. And I didn’t know that you needed to test that with the Word of God.”

A Former Mormon Professor Takes Us Inside Mormonism
Published on Nov 5, 2013
Originally Aired November 5, 2013 askdrbrown.org
Dr. Brown speaks with Dr. Lynne Wilder, formerly a tenured professor at Brigham Young University, author of the book Unveiled Grace. Mormon, ex-Mormons, and all interested believers are invited to listen and call in to the show.
The Bible vs. The Book of Mormon — The Book of Mormon is 19th century fiction based on the complete lack of historical evidence. Mormonism is based solely on a feeling, the “burning in the bosom” — which makes it a doctrine of demons!
