Some search the web and find faith

*My thoughts after reading Some Mormons Search the Web and Find Doubt by Laurie Goodstein of the NY Times. Goodstein recently interviewed a former prominent LDS church leader in Sweden who's now questioning his faith. I met the leader on my mission, and shared a Christmas with him and his family. First a personal story... My teenage world was rocked. I had just read this in The Book of Mormon: "And the Lord saw that the brother of Jared had fallen to the earth; and the Lord said unto him: Arise, why hast thou fallen?" "And he saith unto the Lord: I saw the finger of the Lord, and I feared lest he should smite me; for I knew not that the Lord had flesh and blood." source Flesh and blood.  When was this written again? Centuries before Jesus got flesh and blood. I don't know if I started sweating, but I strongly recall the floor falling out. This book is as true as they come. Could something so right be so chronologically wrong? I prayed.

You rock!
