The comment was made concerning Jeffrey R. Holland's October 2009 conference talk:
"Just thought I would say that, as always, Jeffrey R. Holland's talk is powerful, well thought out, insightful, etc. etc. etc. He is both a moving and a persuasive speaker, his logic excellent. Plus, I always love his topics! I do always feel the Spirit when he talks."
To which I responded:
I have a more difficult time feeling the Spirit when Elder Holland talks. I strongly disagree with his comment about the BoM being something that people must discredit before being able to leave the church. As I have said many times, I do not believe that the BoM's truth/authenticity would necessarily compel a person to remain an active member of the church and accept all of the present-day dogma which comes out of the mouths of Holland and other church leaders. Just as God give us truth line upon line, and precept upon precept, here a litte, and there a little, it is perfectly plausible that serious doctrinal error could persist in the church even if the BoM is true. While these doctrinal errors do not necessarily compel a person to leave the church, they are significant enough to seriously undermine the idea that our leaders' purported revelations and sermons are always from God.
