But as a general rule, knowing that light cleaveth to light and whatnot . . . I’m thinking that someone who isn’t at least a little intrigued at the shreds of Mormonism that come their way, probably hasn’t yet grown into the sort of trajectory that defines a Celestial person. My personal opinion is there are a lot of misconceptions about how righteous non-members are supposed to find the Truth, almost as if it's as simply as having them read Joseph's Smith First Vision and WALA! I don't think it's that simple. For some, maybe it is that simple, but when you take into consideration how many religions out there claiming to have the truth, and that the LDS Church is one among many, non-members can be open to the truth while as the same time being cautious to not blindly accept just anything. That's not always something easy to balance as we as members of the Church know ourselves as we seek additional truth and light.
