I love what Shawn is doing over at Heart of the Matter and would recommend it ten times over. He does a great job with callers, obviously does a lot of preparation, teaches loads of history, forthrightly engages LDS culture and beliefs and teachings, and preaches the gospel of the Bible. The show is a lot of fun and I always love seeing a new clip posted by testskriftene on Youtube.
A criticism Shawn McCraney has received from the rest of the countercult community (I say “rest of” because he is one of us! :-] ) was over his controversial suggestion that some born-again ex-Mormons (in spirit) stay on the rolls and keep participating in the LDS Church. The good intent behind the suggestion is to revolutionize the Mormon religion from the inside-out. There are multiple problems with this suggestion, one of which is the command in 1 Corinthians 5 not to participate in table-fellowship with idolaters. Shawn’s message of grace and transformation and truth to Mormons is even more clear with clarion calls to “abandon ship“, so videos like this are encouraging.
