Was it The Only True and Living Church to you?

It was. I was born into it, and believed everything I was told. It's a great feeling to think that you as special as the Mormon Church says you are as a member.

But that feeling faded as I struggled with depression and low self-worth. The message I was constantly fed was that the Mormon Church was the only way to true happiness. If I was in it and miserable, I must be the problem.

I am embarrassed to say, that, yes, I was arrogant enough to think, and then teach on my mission, that the LDS church was the one and only true church on the face of the Earth. I want to apologize to all those people I baptized in Argentina for having lied to them. [shudder!]

This is what every church says. There are plenty of well-to-do theists out there that have different beliefs and believe that their church is the only right one. It doesn't add up when your church says they're the only true church. Either every other church is lying to their believers, or your church is lying to you.
