I recently came across a quote by Sextus Empiricus (c. 160 – c. 210 CE) which reads:
"When people are investigating any subject, the likely result is either a discovery, or a denial of a discovery and a confession of inapprehensibility, or else a continuation of the investigation.... Those who are called Dogmatists in the proper sense of the word think that they have discovered the truth—for example, the schools of Aristotle and Epicures and the Stoics, and some others. The schools of Clitomachus and Carneades, and other Academics, have asserted that things cannot be apprehended. And the Skeptics are still investigating."
The three general positions or stances outlined in the quote made me pause and reflect on my own exit from Mormonism. There are only three options that a person may take as they begin their exit from the church.
For those people taking their first steps in their faith transition out of the LDS church, how far will you go in "apprehending" the truth? Do you have what it takes to find your way out?
I'm three years out of the church this month, so I thought that I would pay a visit to the site to give a friendly hello to everyone, and make this posting!
