Responses to the CES Letter

The CES Let­ter is the most well-known com­pi­la­tion of prob­lems with LDS truth-claims. Below are respons­es to the CES Let­ter. Where he has respond­ed, I’ve includ­ed a link to the response by Jere­my Run­nells (author of The CES Letter).

General pros/cons of the LDS lifestyle

  1. www​.mor​mon​think​.com is a vast resource for pre­sent­ing and dis­cussing LDS truth-claims. The site states that they are “nei­ther an anti-Mor­mon web­site nor an LDS apol­o­gist web­site”, but the dis­cus­sion and tone is over­whelm­ing­ly crit­i­cal, lest the read­er be mis­eld by this dis­claimer. Regard­less, it is a high­ly use­ful resource as long as the site’s bias is clear­ly appre­ci­at­ed.
