Mormon Stories - LDS

Brian Tibbets describes his faith journey from devoted Mormon missionary to suic*dal doubter to healed ex-Mormon. He opens up about the shame and lies he felt compelled to tell while hiding his loss of faith, his wife's manipulation by unethical therapist Jodi Hildebrandt, and the supernatural beliefs that tore his marriage and family apart. Brian shares intimate details about his experiences with Mormon rules around sexuality and how he tested whether sinning really caused loss of the Spirit. Ultimately, Brian found peace and healing after leaving the LDS church, regaining relationships with his kids, and finding a healthier marriage outside Mormonism. His story serves as a cautionary tale about the harm fundamentalist Mormon beliefs can cause.

The team discusses controversial allegations of sexual impropriety against Joseph Smith and John C. Bennett in Nauvoo, the existence of the Danites as a violent vigilante group, Bennett's subsequent exposes of Mormonism after his excommunication, the succession crisis and various Mormon offshoots after Joseph Smith's death, and questions around the authenticity of Mormon truth claims such as the golden plates. There is debate around the accuracy of some historical sources, as well as acknowledgment that early Mormonism contained cult-like elements such as polygamy and unquestioning loyalty tests.
