- LDS cosmology (the nature of the universe)
- LDS ontology (the nature of reality, including God and humanity)
- LDS epistemology (the nature of truth and ways of knowing it)
- the organization and functioning of the LDS Church
The challenge is that they are all interrelated, which is why you get so many goofy and misinformed postings about the LDS Church and its doctrine (as a parallel example, try to write intelligently on the Catholic doctrine of the immaculate conception of Mary without reference to original sin, St. Augustine, or the Fall). I’m not quite sure yet how I’m going to tackle all this — except that I may just pick an arbitrary starting point and go from there.Â ..bruce..
