To Each Her Own

I have said on more than one occasion that every individual needs to find peace with their own personality and perspective - and allow "all men everywhere the same privilege". In my opinion, number 11 is the most powerfully practical of all the Articles of Faith - and the least followed by many members. It simply is too natural and easy to find one's own peace but not allow others to find their peace in a slightly or very different way, realizing that honesty and sincerity don't lead always to the exact same conclusions.

"To each her own" is perhaps the most fundamental principle in the Restored Gospel.

Amen. Personal revelation is... well... personal. Meant for YOU. I have known very spiritual people who can be rigid about their opinions in that, if they feels like they have been inspired in a certain way, that this revelation is universally the right answer for everyone and others, too, and would receive their particular revelation if they tried.

it's a little frustrating :)
