It’s a mistake to think that Mormonism is about Mormonism.
Similarly, it’s a mistake to think that my own life is about me.
To the degree that my own life is about me, that life will be sucked down the rabbit hole of self-regard and the whole thing will look like a sham, a game, an unforgivable fraud. A self-devouring maw.
And my life will look that way because it will have been.
