A mystic from another faith tradition might say the same kinds of things, but certainly wouldn't interpret it in terms of Jesus and Joseph Smith. Someone from outside of the Abrahamic worldview might replace "God" with "Nature" or "Gaia" or something, and "still small voice" with "the god within."People are best benefited when the religion lives in them. When the fire gets ignited in their own hearts. When they can look around in this world and they can see the fingerprints of God everywhere, and the wonder of this creation, and to feel like they have a spark of the divine in themselves as well. To say, “there’s a lot that God has done with me,” distracts more than it contributes. If instead you can say “there’s a spark of the divine that’s within you that is actually connected to God,” and if you can find the peace within you to allow that still small voice to actually be heard, you will find an amazing thing about the value of, not only yourself, but every individual that’s walking on the planet, and that we are all interconnected to one another through that divine spark.
There was a time in my Mormon struggle when this would have appealed to me, but at the same time it's unlikely that I would have given the time of day to an apostate like Denver Snuffer, who didn't have Salt Lake Elohim's Stamp of Approval.
Now I guess we just wait and see where his road forks; will he get crucified or will he start marrying teenagers? Or maybe tied up and tossed into the trunk of a car registered to Kirton and McConkie.
