So I’m expanding from history a bit this week.
Is anyone aware of any writings where LDS theologians/authorities/thinkers have addressed any of the following questions?
1. Why would God allow an apostasy to happen?
2. Why would God put Christ on Earth only to follow up with 1800 years of apostasy?
3. Why couldn’t the apostasy happen again?
I was called as Elder’s Quorum Instructor last Sunday, and will be teaching next Sunday on the early church (Here’s my lesson outline) and would love to read up on any literature around these questions in the meantime.
