Untitled[edit]

I've tried to make some restructuring and 'tidying up' changes here, but I think they have a ways to go. The latter section (as I've just hacked it into being) I'm particularly struggling with. In style it's repetitious: "Critics...". In tone it's defensive: more space on refuting said critics than presenting their views. The second paragraph I'm especially struggling to follow the thread of. Is this to the point rebuttal, or waxing lyrical?

I've removed these comments:

Incomplete list; others to be listed

Some, if not all, of the material below is probably more relevant to the Great Apostasy article.

... not because I disagree, but because they're in the wrong place. Alai 06:31, 1 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Since this is a '(Mormonism)' article, the reference to the L-d.S. take should probably be widened if possible. (I gather the CoC have a somewhat different view on Apostacy, so I don't want to wade in and say something over-specific myself.) Alai 06:38, 1 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Changed parenthetical[edit]

I've changed the parenthetical in accordance with proposed changes in the Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Mormonism). I think this article is one of the prime ones in which the parenthetical (Mormonism) might be the most problemmatical. COGDEN 18:22, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Whose Account???[edit]

I just looked at this section of the Latter Day Saint movement and realized that this is very accurate in accordance to Latter-day Saint beliefs, but it makes a huge assumption that other churches within the movement feel the same way about each calling and ordinance. I am not sure what to do here and I don't want to speak for any other organization I am unfamiliar with.Jcg5029 23:36, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

An extremely long intro section with big table right near the beginning, an unusually large External Links section given the small size of the article, and a list of "references" comprised entirely of Isaiah. This article needs some cleanup. ...comments? ~BFizz 03:34, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
