One thought on “Mormon History Podcast: 011: Testify or Testi-Lie?

  1. This episode is pretty enlightening and does strike a chord with me.
    Going to the origin of Aaronic & Melchizedek preisthood is super vital to the Church and restored gospel.

    Now that part of my testimony seem to have been watered down.
