    I read this book as a convert who had been exposed to many of the lies debunked in this book Blowing out other people's candle doesn't make yours burn brighter The Antis seem to forget that in America when you have a better idea you describe what it is Why pound other people by calling them evil devils That's just plain stupid And it's revealing; hatred for a religion that cannot be justified tells me a lot about the people using such rhetoric Empty souls I've always respected people of other religions and attended many of their services I do not believe that people go to hell or that God would hate anyone for a sincere belief in Him It does in my opinion probably grieve God to no end seeing such bigotry and hate expressed by people pretending to speak for Him Even if you never plan on embracing any religion you should read The Gainsayers just to understand the negativity some people harbor and how to avoid them

    There were a lot of uestions answered by this book and a lot that I hadn't known to ask but I've encountered after reading it It was nice to know the answers The title may seem a bit off but it is his term for those who fought against the Lord's Church in ancient times they gainsaid the truth its a KJV word He outlines how Jesus and John the Baptist were resisted vilified and treated as a cult for going against orthodoxy the Jews believed there would be no new prophets revelation scripture new priesthood authority wasn't necessary etc And of course he draws the modern day parallel to the restored Church and shows that the opposition we encounter is better interpreted as an evidence that the Church is worth looking at rather than evidence of its falseness I especially appreciated the chapter where he went through the claims of The Godmakers film and another where he details the common tactics used by antimormons
