It’s ridiculous that in our religion, asking questions is seen as failure. Ask something simple that you don’t understand, people shun you for never paying attention in Primary. Ask something deep, questioning God Himself, and surely your second-cousin’s somewhere in the classroom who calls your Great Aunt Beatrice and by the time you get home to your dorm, your mom’s on the phone asking why you’re losing your testimony at a church school.
I want this classroom to be a safe space. I want you all to ask as many questions as you have so that we can study them together. We’re supposed to love God with all our heart, might, and MIND: don’t leave your logic at the door! Never “Just Believe!” This religion is completely based on questions…every doctrine that has ever been revealed, including baptism and the priesthood, the scriptures themselves…have been revealed because someone asked God a question. Where would we be now if Joseph, when confused about his own religion, decided to “Just Believe”?
If you never ask God any questions, how do you expect Him to give YOU any answers?"
