Everyone Seems to Fake It

By False Doctrine

We are down to just attending sacrament meeting occasionally.  I find the talks full of tripe and mostly evangelical rather than true doctrine.  I stopped attending Sunday school after the teacher flat out told falsehoods a couple of times.  They could easily be refuted with scripture but when I refuted them, everyone gave me the stink eye like I was being mean.  And then I stopped attending Relief Society when it became clear that the entire group of women were irrationally depressed and overly focused on church to the point of sacrificing all else including their own happiness.  There was and is no joy in these groups.  The happiness is all fleeting and fake.  It’s so depressing.

**How can church members recognize the dangers of over-sacrificing and burnout? How can teachers make it safer for class members to speak up and challenge incorrect doctrine?
