Welcome to the personal blog of Kevin Mills Crenshaw. You can learn about my professional background at www.kevincrenshaw.com and my company and book at TeamLeap.com. But that’s only a small part of my life. The most important things aren’t appropriate in a resume.
The title of this blog comes from Moroni 7:19 in the Book of Mormon:
Wherefore, I beseech of you, brethren, that ye should search diligently in the light of Christ that ye may know good from evil; and if ye will lay hold upon every good thing, and condemn it not, ye certainly will be a child of Christ.
This blog will address “every good thing” from my personal experience and LDS theology as well as scientific and technical truths. Does this seem unusual? Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and accepted by Mormons as a latter-day prophet said this:
One of the grand fundamental principles of “Mormonism” is to receive truth, let it come from whence it may. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 313.
This is my personal sentiment. Truth is “knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come” (D&C 93:24), so it’s a knowledge of reality, embracing and encompassing all frames of reference at once. We certainly can’t know all truth by ourselves in this life, but we can come to know many truths, including (through revelation, predicated on well-defined principles) what’s needed to pass this test called life and inherit what God hopes for us.
Religious thoughts, ideas, and opinions expressed here are not official pronouncements of LDS doctrine or teachings, but my best current understanding and application of those teachings. I am not authorized to speak for the Church regardless of any position I may currently hold in it. I will try to distinguish accepted, established doctrine from personal opinion or extrapolations where possible.
I reserve the right to be wrong at any time, and to correct my positions as my understanding improves. My blog articles will not advertise when such corrections are made—you can use Wayback Machine for that.
