As I was listening to the audio version of the Book of Mormon, I started to realize that the theme of priestcraft is more significant than I had originally thought. I wanted to understand this topic better, so I decided to study it in greater depth. In this post, I will share not only the results of my study, but I will also describe the process that I went through to reach these conclusions. In my opinion, the process is just as important as the result, if not more. It would flatter my ego for people to think of me as a brilliant scholar and thinker. But I feel that the greatest contribution I can make is to teach people how to think and how to deal with difficult questions.
