Feeling alone, Justin shares with his father and wife his concerns about his church and comes to a new understanding of his faith and those he loves.
In any religious endeavor there are always reasons to doubt along with the reasons to believe. Because religion involves humans at every level here on earth, there are weaknesses in every religion. But there are also virtues and truths in almost all religions or belief systems. Even the New Testament is not shy about revealing the weaknesses of the church at that time. It was not perfect then, so why should we expect it to be now? Latter-day Saints are taught to not take any man’s word for anything, but to study it out in their own minds and test it spiritually. Why not assume that God will lead us to truth in the long run if we are sincere and continue in faith? There is no reason to fear truth, so why not humble ourselves and keep searching, never assuming we know all there is to know about anything?
