Mormon Discussion Podcast Takes a look at the subject of Blind obedience and how the culture and Doctrine can at times be conflicting.
Some leaders have tried to explain that unquestioning obedience is not “blind” obedience but rather “faith” Obedience. We are a faith of mixed messages on this topic. We want people to follow the brethren. We have a song “Follow the Prophet”. And we call those who no longer follow…. apostates. But in reality does the Doctrine teach us something different?
Where do you draw the line between faithful obedience and blind obedience?
Must dissent be kept private?
Can I disagree with Church leaders out loud?
What situations have you put your foot down and dissented openly?
Bill Reel is the host of Mormon Discussion Podcast. The podcast tries to deal with the tough issues forthrightly while “leading with faith”.
