IDK what happened for your family member to be an ex member... but my experiences are what I put into them. The members are not perfect, their purpose is to hopefully be working towards perfectness.<quoted text> its really not funny. I've studied many religions and my family member was an ex Mormon, they told me what happened to them after they left, and while they were still in lds and converting to christainity what he seen,
I know for myself... I studied world religions in college, I went to many different sects, and I seen plenty... However, I have a true testimony is Jesus Christ, the Bible, the Book of Mormon (which is about the experiences the Jews that left Jerusalem to come to America in ~600 B.C.), and in Joseph Smith who was a true prophet. I have a strong testimony that a a young boy with no education could translate this book without divine assistance from Father above (because it was not written in a language that no other had due to it being a mixture of Hebrew and Egyptian Hieroglyphs, the space the Nephites had to write on was limited so they had to compress the language-making it unique/and that language was a lost language by 1829). I have a true testimony that even though members may be wrong the Church is true, and always will be.
