"Consecrate Your Brain": A Short Series with Greg Smith

Plural marriage was only the catalyst 
for a much more fundamental question 
and that question was,"Do I trust Father?" 
And I see now, by the grace of God, that my 
instinctive reaction was to do that, to express 
my trust and, amazingly, to mean it. 
I did not realize it at the time, but what I 
effectively chose to do, if I can put it 
crudely, is I chose to "consecrate my brain." 
-Greg L. Smith 
(2009 FAIR Conference)

 During his 2009 FAIR Conference address on plural marriage, researcher Gregory L. Smith explained his decision to "consecrate" his mind to God. In this seven-part series, Greg explains the meaning of the phrase and explores the interplay of faith and reason in a relationship with God. Several installments also directly involve plural marriage. Click the images below to access each installment.

This has been a worthwhile series which I have followed with great interest -- a little heavy for me to comment on, but very enjoyable. I appreciate having a catalog of the whole series in one place, and I've linked to it from Keepa thinking that now that the series is complete even more readers might enjoy scanning through it.

Thanks, BHodges and Greg.

Thank you, Greg for taking the time to share with us. I've enjoyed the analysis and it has made me think about my relationship with God in a different way. Thanks to you, too, Blair, for making this possible!
