Episode 20

LDS Church Response to SEC Fine Debunked

In this episode of Mormonish, Landon and Rebecca are back talking about church finance! In a previous Mormonish episode they presented data on what TBMs thought of the recent SEC ruling and fine placed on the LDS church! It seems that the church also received questions from faithful members on this topic because ironically, on March 10, 2023, the LDS church published a topic essay titled, “Church Finance!” The little known essay is meant to put everyone’s mind at ease and reassure members that there has been no financial impropriety, now or ever, in the church. Join us as we debunk the new “Church Finances” essay in this informative and humorous episode of Mormonish!
