This was the first Reformation Boise Conference since the Coronavirus hit. I was concerned that it wouldn’t have a good turnout due to people being limited in their travel from other states, or being hesitant to gather together, but I was pleasantly surprised to see how many folks did attend. In my estimation it was over 400. I’m not sure how many actually were there. This was just my personal estimation… Don’t be hatin’ if I got that wrong.
I went with a friend from my local Church. We both had a great time. It was good to see that we are not alone in Idaho. I don’t know how much you know about the spiritual state of Idaho. It has been predominately Mormon for an exceedingly long duration. (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) For those of you who don’t know what Mormonism is, it is a works-righteousness cult developed by a con-man and false prophet named Joseph Smith. Like all cults, they insist they are Christians while denying, the deity of Christ, the trinity, the nature of sin, and righteousness, monogamous marriage, and the aseity of God just to name a few key points. I hope you get the picture. They are not the only cult in Idaho. There are the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Seventh Day Adventists, and a few other minor ones. The rest of the religious landscape is filled up with different Arminian, Pelagian, and Semi-Pelagian anthropocentric denominations.
I had never known an Idaho, my entire life, that wasn’t Mormon primarily. That is why it has been so very encouraging to have this convention annually. I, along with others who believe like I do, get to meet up, and listen to intelligent, and educated men, give discourse on topics of great theological import. This is edifying to the body of Christ. I can’t speak for everyone, but I assume they feel similarly, else why would they return year after year? It is wonderful to see the same people year after year, and have fellowship. It is also a great blessing to be able to purchase books at the book tables. This year they were offered at cost simply to get the resources into the hands of those who need them, and would use them.
I know they are probably tired of hearing it, but thanks for putting the conference on. It takes a lot of planning and work.
