One really significant tenet of Mormonism is the importance of a testimony, otherwise defined as your belief in what they teach. You always have to defend your testimony and build it up in as many ways as possible. But do other religions have testimonies as well? And what are their testimonies based on? I saw a post recently (credited below) that presented 20 testimonies. This inspired me to present the list in quiz form to see if you can tell which religion this person is bearing their testimony for. Can you guess? And since they’re all so similar, which one is true?
“I felt a burning in my heart, and a great burden seemed to have left me.”
Choose from one of these:
There are, of course, many conclusions we can derive from this; but the key point I’m trying to make is that your “testimony” doesn’t mean anything whatsoever. It’s the same spirit that’s witnessing to all these other believers that they’re right and you’re wrong. There are many ways to find truth, but feelings and testimonies is clearly not one of them. Afterall, how do you know your feelings are genuine and someone else’s isn’t?
