Financial transparency

QUOTE: “When someone comes to you with a question or a concern, please do not brush the question off—do not tell him or her to not worry about the question. Please do not doubt the person’s dedication to the Lord or His work. Instead, help the person find the answers to their questions. … We have heard stories where someone asking honest questions about our history, doctrine, or practice were treated as though they were faithless. This is not the Lord’s way. As Peter said, ‘Be ready always to give an answer to every man or woman that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you.’ … The Church is dedicated to transparency….” — M. Russell Ballard, 13 September 2015. [source]

COMMENTARY: I have a lot of questions I’d like answered, but I don’t think the church really is dedicated to transparency. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
