Your list is doctrinal. But once one begins scratching the surface of these ideas, we leave the area of doctrine and enter into speculation.

For example,
1. There is a God with a body, but was he a Savior on his own planet?

I don't know.


2. Is Christ the savior of just this world, all the universe? What?

I don't know.


3. Was Joseph Smith infallible? If not, which of his statements are not prophetic?

I don't know.


4. What parts of the Bible have not been translated correctly?

I don't know.


5. Pres Hinckley is prophet, but does he know everything? Or just what God has revealed to him, sufficient to provide eternal life to mankind?

I don't know.


6. How much faith is required to be saved? And is that salvation in the Celestial Kingdom, or a lower kingdom that we are speaking about?

I don't know.


I am continually astounded at my ignorance. It is truly world class. Perhaps that is why my love of doctrine is so intensely interested in what we DO know for sure.

However, I have noticed something interesting on these email discussion lists: For everything I don't know, there is someone who thinks he does.
