Product Description

We live in a time of information overload. Much of what is written about the Church is positive and helpful, but some is downright hurtful and troubling. When others attack Church history or doctrine, we don't have to stand there defenseless. In this talk Brad Wilcox instructs listeners that whenever they read or hear something about the Church that doesn't seem quite right, they should put it to the test--the H.O.G.M.E.T test. Each letter stands for a question we can ask ourselves: Is it hearsay? Is it out of context or an unsupported generalization? Is it mudslinging or an exaggeration? Finally, is it true? If so, we don't apologize if our beliefs and doctrines are not the same as those of other religions. Because of the restoration we enjoy a fullness of the gospel and are guardians of complete truth. This lively and memorable talk includes fascinating stories and real life examples that will not not only provide an effective way to evaluate the truthfulness of anti-Mormon accusations, but also greater strength to live the gospel of Jesus Christ.
