1543: Alpine Utah Mormon Youth Rescue with Brad Wilcox
February 7, 2022
You’ve heard of The Swedish Rescue, right? Our Mormon Stories inbox had an influx of incensed Latter-day Saints across all spectrums of belief last night as Brad Wilcox gave a fireside talk that we’re calling “The Alpine Utah Mormon Youth Rescue.” Just like the LDS church’s response to the wave of apostasy in 2012 affecting Swedish members, Brad Wilcox, professor of ancient scripture at BYU and second counselor in the Young Men general presidency, spoke to the youth February 6th, 2022 in a talk about how leaving the Mormon church means “you lose everything that matters”.
Join John, Gerardo, and Carah as we play clips and react to Brad explaining his reasons to the youth of the church that those who leave the faith are taking “the hardest possible route in life.” Other quotes from the talk include:
“Maybe instead of asking ‘why did the blacks have to wait until 1978’, maybe what we should be asking is ‘why did the whites and other races have to wait until 1829?’”
“We are the only Christians in the world led by Christ”
“When you walk away from this church you lose everything that matters in your life.”
