NOTE: These essays are not discussed in any General or Stake or Ward conference or in missionary discussions. The reason is obvious. There would be a mass exodus and no converts would be joining this cult.
My story is common to many people who have been flocking out of the Mormon church in recent years.
I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to some ex-Mormons who opened my eyes starting on April 1, 2018: Jeremy Runnells, John Dehlin, Jerald and Sandra Tanner, Grant Palmer and Lee Baker.
