I’ve watched 100s, probably 1000s of hours, of YouTube videos during the last 3-4 years. Some of my favorites involve John Lennox, William Lane Craig, Gary Habermas, Richard Bushman, and the many past speakers at FAIR Mormon conferences (click here). This bright LDS guy has created a YouTube channel onto which he uploads hours and hours of videos, defending the LDS church against all the contemporary critical claims.
I just found this guy’s videos 3-4 days ago. You can search on YouTube by searching for “LDS Truth Claims”. He also posts his presentations on Sway (click here). After watching #1 last night it looks like he meets in his LDS chapel somewhere in greater Seattle on Tuesday evenings. This Seattle-area Latter-day Saint is well prepared and extremely organized.
I believe in having faith. I also believe in supporting faith with understanding. Many who don’t believe in our faith (especially many who have left) will often distort our positions and history. You might as well get to know your church, its teachings, and history better.
