I do not ~think~ you would consider dodging and weaving and understating a lie Rest..i believe you are basically "honest" But lets face it there is lots of dodging going on
Was this a lie?
From Time magazine interview with Hinckley August 4, 1997
On whether the LDS Church holds that, "God the Father was once a man, he sounded uncertain, I dont know that we teach it. I dont know that we emphasize it ... I understand the philosophical background behind it, but I dont know a lot about it, and I dont think others know a lot about it," Hinckley told Time.
It sounds like Hinckley did not contend earnestly for his faith, but was embarrassed about it. It is certainly easy to find many cites which state that "Father Adam God" was once a man. They used to actually publish such things in the newspaper with big bold headlines to that effect when they weren't embarrassed about their faith.
