My immediate and extended family are deeply TBM. They know I have resigned.
Today, one close relative posted a chart on FB that shows some mormon doctrine in a very basic way. It has arrows pointing out the fate of the good and the bad folks. The good ones go on to glory but the bad ones go to outer darkness. The bad ones consisted of only 2 groups: 1-Satan and his demons and 2-apostates.
What is interesting to me is that in the past few years, many articles and talks have been posted by church authorities and others about folks who leave the church or have a faith crises or stop believing altogether. The general theme of these messages has been to encourage members to try to understand and still engage and love those who doubt or leave the church. So, which is it, TSCC? Are we cast into outer darkness like your chart shows we are...put in the same category as satan and his demons? (Seems kinda harsh).
