The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has been around for almost two centuries. It has ebbed and fluctuated in such a predictably adaptive manner throughout it's relatively short life in the religious realm. This Church has a very sordid past, which it does a very good job of teaching for itself, whether the history is slanted or not, is yours to decide. Join me on a journey through the history of the LDS Church through the eyes of the people that were actually there. We will learn about the founding members, where the practices came from, where the Book of Mormon (Mormon Bible) came from, and most importantly, we will examine Joseph Smith in every aspect possibly available to us today.

On this episode, we have a conversation with one of my personal Mormon history idols, Shawn McCraney, host of the TV show “Heart of the Matter”. Shawn grew up in the church, but thanks to a roadside spiritual experience, he now hosts a TV show centered around a deconstruction of Mormonism and a construction of Christianity. We talk Mormonism for a bit then we get on to why he believes what he believes, and just how hard he believes it. Be sure to catch the two of us on his show episode 544 linked below.
