Ep 785 – SMACKDOWNS ONLY: The Poelman Smackdown

The story of the Mormon church trying to flush a slightly off-message conference talk down the memory hole back in 1984.  What was so “off message” that they had to try to change it forever?  (That’s what is so… revealing).

Ep 262 – A Tale of Two Poelmans

In 1984, Elder Ronald E Polman delivered a talk titled “The Gospel and the Church” in General Conference. It emphasized the importance of an eternally divine gospel being delivered through a man-made fallible church. The Brethren did not like this message, and made him re-write the talk to make the church as eternally divine and infallible as the gospel. They also made him re-deliver the talk in front of an empty tabernacle to record it and pass it off as the original. But thanks to home VCRs, they got caught. And today you can hear all about it, including clips from both the original talk and the re-written message. So listen in as Glenn and Scott (aka Jesse) are joined by Rock Waterman and James Rogers two discuss A Tale of two Poelmans.

*This recorded conversation was previously released in January 2011 on another podcast but has since been removed. Now it is back where it belongs.

Ep 525 – Culture vs. Doctrine

What is the difference between Mormon culture and “the gospel?”  You don’t have to be anti-mormon-crusader-extraordinaire Jeremy Goff or privately censured General Authority Ronald E. Poelman to see there is a distinction between the culture and the gospel.  Unless of course you remove the biasing blinders from your eyes and finally see that there really is no distinction at all.  Listen in as Glenn smacks down another goofy video from Jeremy Goff and revisits the Elder Poelman 1984 kerfuffle. This episode will change the way you eat green jello!
