Lynn Wilder joins the indoubt Podcast this week and shares her story and the connection she had to Mormonism. Lynn explains that she had an idea of Christianity, but she quickly found that everything she knew was Mormon – her identity, thoughts, friends and job were Mormon. She was unaware of the truth of Jesus until her son became a Christian and showed her the Bible and Christianity. The importance of knowing what your Bible really says rings true for all of us and Lynn pushes the importance of it, speaking from her personal experiences. Ryan and Lynn also talk about the differences between Mormonism and Christianity, leading to a discussion on how we can all live our lives in the image of God.
