March Mormon Doctrine Round Two Wrap-up or “Clearly, we are in apostasy”

March Mormon Doctrine Round Two Wrap-up or “Clearly, we are in apostasy” March 17, 2006

Yesterday’s results:
9 – Gordon B. Hinckley 19
4 – Joseph F. Smith 3

11 – Mormon Doctrine 14
2 – The Bible 8

10 – Relief Society 13
3 – The Church Educational System 8

12 – Saving Ordinances 12
16 – The Companionship of the Holy Ghost 11

So, the Sweet Sixteen teams and their matches are:
On the 20th,
1 – Joseph Smith vs. 3 – Bruce R. McConkie
10 – Tithing and Consecration vs.
1 – The Book of Mormon vs. 3 – The Doctrine and Covenants
10 – The Relief Society vs. 12 – The Young Men’s Program

On the 21st,
9 – Gordon B. Hinckley vs. 11 – Hugh W. Nibley
9 – Word of Wisdom vs. 11 – Restoration of Priesthood Authority
8 – The 2nd Official Declaration vs. 11 – Mormon Doctrine
4 – Temple Building vs. 6 – Sacrament Meeting

I am once again shocked at some of the voting. Obviously, the seeding committee needs to be fired. How did all those double digits wind up in the Sweet Sixteen?

On a more serious note, is this an accurate read of what we really think? Because if Mormon Doctrine really has replaced the Bible, I would think that we think that the church is in serious trouble (I say this as someone who has no institutional problem with Elder McConkie).
