Clarification October 28, 2014

Some people seem to have misunderstood part of my concerns.  I have no objection whatsoever to classes on thematic classes such as “Jesus Christ and the Everlasting Gospel,” “Teachings and Doctrine of the Book of Mormon,” “Foundations of the Restoration,” or “The Eternal Family.”  My concern is that such thematic classes should supplement and complement, rather than replace rigorous text-based, contextual courses on scripture.  There is room for many type of courses in religious education, but the core focus should be to teach the students how to understand the scriptures.
