TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

In this episode, Jon talks candidly about the mounting pressure of going on a Mormon mission, the shame and guilt of a pornography addiction and the lies he had to tell to cover it up, and the mounting evidence he was discovering that indicated the Mormon Church was not all that it claimed to be.  He also shares the one piece of Mormon history that "broke his shelf" and allowed him to finally conclude the Mormon Church simply was not true and it shouldn't have a hold on him.  Jon's honesty and authenticity makes for an engaging episode that many will relate to, and explains why so many disenchanted LDS church members turn to atheism and agnosticism when they lose their Mormon faith.
