Many of our faith traditions today have been borrowed from our larger culture and are being taught as doctrine.

We have a responsibility to examine the ideas that are presented to us and discern truth from error and sort out doctrine from tradition–no matter whether the ideas in question come from our families, church leaders, or others. Earnestly seeking out truth is what fosters our freedom and wisdom and will allow us to fully access the richness of our theology. 


In this NEW podcast episode, Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife joins the Cultural Hall Podcast to discuss some of the false traditions that have been passed down through generations and are now being misunderstood as doctrine–topics like patriarchal order within the church and family, Mother in Heaven, equality, priesthood authority, polygamy, and sexuality. It’s important to pray, ponder, and discern your own position. 


Listen to the full episode to learn more about:

* Personal revelation and moral responsibility

* Traditions vs Truth 

* Limited understandings of sexuality, intimacy, priesthood, and Mother-in-Heaven 

* How to handle complicated topics and different perspectives with maturity
