Becky kept telling me the god of Mormonism was not the same as God in the Bible. I didn’t exactly understand that concept, but didn’t want to take any chances; so I began addressing my prayers to “the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” If the Church was true, my prayers would still reach Heavenly Father, but if it wasn’t true, the real God would hear and respond to my pleas. . .
I was fascinated and horrified by everything we were finding out; information that had been carefully hidden by Church leaders over the years. Fortunately, not carefully hidden enough; for the information was still available for those who wanted to find it. Still, I didn’t want to believe that Mormonism wasn’t true. How could I have been duped for so long? Maybe I had been blind to the facts because I wanted the Church to be true. . .
