Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (otherwise known as LDS or Mormon) sometimes disagree with one another. And not only about politics. Oftentimes, there is a disagreement in how scripture is interpreted or even how some doctrine is translated. Does that mean that one member is right and the other is wrong? Not always.

Kwaku mentions that scriptures and other doctrines might mean something different to you as time goes on. You might glean different bits of information from the same scripture as you go throughout your life. And that’s okay.

Mimi asks if it’s okay to disagree with the prophet, among questioning other things. David responds that as long as there is a basic belief of fundamental doctrine, we can seek revelation from God to know how to interpret what the prophet says and how it can apply to us and help us to grow.
