75. The Creedal Imperative: Why Creeds? (Part 4/9)

1h 22m | May 20, 2024

In this series, Brendon and Skye are going through the book Crisis of Confidence by Carl Trueman – exploring the reasons why Christians have normally used creeds to guard the faith, and why Mormons have been anti-creedal since their founding. This week we cover chapter three: “The Early Church”. 

Correction: The dates for Heber C. Kimball are June 14, 1801 – June 22, 1868. The dates for Jedediah M. Grant are February 21, 1816 – December 1, 1856. Thus, Kimball lived for 11.5 more years than Grant. Sorry for the silly mistake! I think the Grant comment must have had something to do with either phases or goals of Young’s presidency, rather than length of service. (The mistake was mine, not Sister J's)
