Usually, it's a testament to.... traditions, i.e., folks don't want to rock the boat with their family. More than likely he chose BYU because it's cheap, of very high quality, and offered a distance program. He may have never taken one class on campus. I'm confident that if he really opened his heart and mind to the restored gospel, that he would convert, sooner or later.

An honest person cannot read the Book of Mormon and reject it for any logical reasons. They reject it because they don't believe it. Not because they can articulate a case against it.

A knowledge of its truth comes by the power of the Holy Ghost, but even before that revelation is received, one is compelled by the power of its literary structures to acknowledge that it is of Hebrew origin, not by an uneducated backwoods farmer.

NOBODY has ever articulated an argument against this book of Scripture, that was not based wholly in lies or deliberate misinformation.

Even Ben, if he were reading this, or anybody else, could not offer any rational, factual reasons of how the book came into existence, other than the true testimony that it was translated by the power and inspiration of Jesus Christ.

But nonetheless, I love Ben. He is a great example. He is a role model for MY homeschooled children.
