Were you taught things (being a convert) that were interpreted as unofficial canon or doctrine?
Please give some examples.
I know of several people who have died - some were old, some healthy middle-aged, some were young. The causes of death varied from cancer to brain hemorrhage to being accidentally shot - all sorts of things happened to these folks. Each time, every time, the "answer" for the person passing away was that god needed that person on the other side, that their journey on this side of the veil was satisfactory and accomplished.
I don't think I ever truly believed that but it was a blanket answer, covering all questions about death and I am doubtful this "blanket answer" is something the LDS scriptures support, although frankly, I couldn't care less what they claim to believe partly because those beliefs have been changed and continue to change.
