When we think of issues that are barriers to faith, we often think of issues such as Joseph Smith’s Treasure Digging, the Book of Abraham, Stones & Hats, and Prophetic Errors…. yet for me the two biggest are a Global/Local Flood and the Tower of Babel. We talked about the flood in episode #142 and today we talk about the tower of Babel. While apologists are wanting us to edge carefully into a mythical interpretation, Mormonism officially demands a literal view. In my perspective either angle begs so many questions and compels us to step further into the darkness where faith’s rubber hits the road.
