When I read the New Testament, I discovered that Mormonism departs from biblical Christianity. Temple-worthiness requires good works: live a health code, attend church, tithe, profess faith in Joseph Smith and modern-day prophets and apostles, stay away from apostates, wear the authorized priesthood temple garments, and marry a worthy Mormon in the temple.

“Christian” was synonymous with good behavior and outside appearance, not a state of being saved or professing biblical truth.

J. Lynn Wilder was a confident, Mormon professor at Brigham Young University who had special privileges to enter all Mormon temples and even served in a Mormon temple for 10 years. Lynn’s discomfort with Mormon doctrine began to grow when she tried to teach students about the importance of diversity, but they correctly referred her to Mormon scriptures that described dark skin as a curse.We thought we might be friends or pen pals at best.We met as she drove through my town on a visit to see her son's family.
