In hopes of a non-contentious discussion and in moving this from another thread:
1. Is the Correlated Gospel something less than the "Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ".
2. If so, why and does it matter?
First a few of Scott's opening thoughts moved from a different thread thread:
Some further information on Elder Oaks talk quoted in Scott's comment:
I would suggest that to a "Literal'ist"
And to and an "intricate'ist"
Tad R. Callister was just sustained as president of the Sunday school. What does this mean for future church curriculum? Many internet Mormons have been calling for changes in the way we teach in the church, especially our history. Elder Callister is seen by some as a bit too orthodox, and his teachings, though clear and straightforward, a bit to simplistic. Several of his talks and writings have been discussed on this board. So, at a time when many hope for curriculum that is more open, objective, nuanced, and innoculative (is that a word?) than ever, now we know who to look to. I pray he is sensitive to the "cries from the bloggernacle" as well as the needs of an ever expanding worldwide church. Most of all, I pray for his (and his counselors and advisers) sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. What do y'all think?

Today in GD we discussed why Gospel revelation is simple but things become complex. I suggested that complexity arises as we try to make various solitary teachings and revelations into a consistent whole. But then I live in a technicolor world not one of black and white. Your thoughts?

There are 5, count them, 5 pictures of Joseph pointing to characters on the plates open on the table while he's dictating to a scribe in this issue. I think that may be a new record. One of which is a full-page inside-cover illustration called, "The Gift and Power of God", which is later repeated in a smaller form.
Can someone please commission some new artwork with an accompanying article? Please?
Can there be some sort of meeting between the Church History Department and Correlation? It's like they're in two completely different worlds.
It's like they want church members to get shocked and offended and weirded out when the stumble upon historical sources giving a very different picture.
The gap between Correlation and the Church Historical Department really needs to be closed soon. It's getting ridiculous.
