My Prayer was not Fruitful
by Woody Brison

This is one leaf of a review of "Inside Mormonism: What Mormons Really Believe" by Isaiah Bennett
Back to the main page of the review

Bennett's statement: I now can see that my prayer was not fruitful because it was not whole-hearted.

The implication is that had he prayed with his whole heart, he would have gotten the answer.

But he joined the Mormons anyway, because he "no longer saw options clearly." Some questions suggest themselves:

1. Why did Bennett go ahead and join the church? Did he have some prearranged plan to join, "get the goods" on the Mormons, then quit and write this book? Stranger things have happened, and it would explain his bizzarre behavior in joining a terrible evil cult even tho their claims of personal revelation didn't work for him.

2. Bennett didn't get a testimony - does that mean there's no such thing? Literally MILLIONS of people assert they have received just such a testimony from the Holy Ghost, including yours truly.

3. Who decided that Bennett would quit the Mormons if not Bennett? Can he really claim that as evidence that the process of getting a testimony doesn't work? A man could prophecy that he's going to walk thru a door. A prophecy about some event he wasn't in control of would be a lot more convincing.
