And here’s an example of Mormon leaders counseling the members to lie:
From 2008 General Conference, Elder Dallin Oaks, the talk called Testimony:
Another way to seek a testimony seems astonishing when compared with the methods of obtaining other knowledge. We gain or strengthen a testimony by bearing it. Someone even suggested that some testimonies are better gained on the feet bearing them than on the knees praying for them.
Astounding. He’s a retired judge and attorney. He would know better than anyone else that giving a testimony of something that you don’t have knowledge of or witnessed is called perjury.
We call that a lie.
