Leaving The Church But Remaining A Mormon The Rise Of Uncorrelated Mormonism

Call them what you will: “Maverick Mormons”, “Uncorrelated Mormons”, “The Remnant”, “Saints in the Wilderness”, “Neo – Restorationists”, or even “LDS Anarchists” most Saints who find their spiritual nourishment outside the structure of the LDS Church have two common characteristics: 1.) A devotion to Christ and the principles of the Restoration, and 2.) A belief that contemporary Church leaders no longer receive revelation and are therefore spiritually irrelevant to the Church. As their ranks swell, how might these unfaithful faithful affect the future of the Church?
