This is a mystery to me. In one of the previous subject threads, I read about a person who claimed to "believe" (in Mormonism?"), but is still an inactive member of the church.
Interesting. Just what does one believe in that is important enough to "believe", and yet still choose not to be an "active" member?
. That Joseph Smith was a true prophet? (A preposterous conclusion, by all accounts.)
. That the Book of Mormon really came from golden-like plates an angel told J.S. about, and which Joseph translated from gibberish into English with his head in his hat?
. Believe in the sizable sections of the BofM that J.S. plagiarized from the Bible?
. Believe that Joseph was forced to have sex with women he was not married to, or an angle would stab him to death with his sward?
Can someone please straighten this puzzle out for me?
