I met with you in your office a few years ago after reading The Second Comforter. I was mostly impressed at that time by your recurring theme of obedience. Now you've been excommunicated for disobedience? Only possible through vainglory and a loss of the influence of the Holy Ghost. And perhaps other motives, which you yourself would only know about within your own heart.The fact that you cannot see the glaring oxymoron of your message/actions-- while anyone with the Spirit can-- is no doubt just one example of what happens when one loses the gift of the Holy Ghost aka light and intelligence. The most amazing, intangible reality/truth about members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who truly and sincerely are submitting their will to the Lord's will with a pure heart is that they/we are unified in possessing the gift of the Holy Ghost (given when baptized, lost when excommunicated) and we are, as a body/church, able to discern who is among us that lacks that same Spirit. It was pretty obvious you lacked the influence of the Holy ghost when you wrote Passing the Heavenly Gift. Not knowing that, I bought it, started to read it, found nothing enlightening, skimmed and eventually discarded it as a book full of contradictions within itself. All this was months before any controversy about this book began. I did not need church leaders telling me your book was full of contradictions and even untruths. I was able to discern that by the influence of the Spirit.Additionally, your blogs lack the Spirit. You have lost the Spirit and you can't even tell that you have. I suppose that is typical. The scriptures call it "spiritual blindness." I think you are an imminent spiritual train wreck and I am sorry for you and your family.Sincerely,
