Why are people afraid of the truth?
It seems that people don't want to know the truth of all things because they won't look for the truth. They would rather believe what people say instead of actually looking for the real documents and making up their own minds. For example, why are people afraid to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. If you believe in prayer, you will get the true answer. Why are people afraid to really read the Book of Mormon and really ask in faith for the answer?
Perhaps it's not necessarily that people are scared of the truth, perhaps it's that their perception of the truth is different.
For example, Jehovah's Witnesses call their religion 'the truth'... To them it is, because that's what they believe. Mormons have their truth, Christians theirs, Sikh's and Muslims have theirs... The truth is in the eye of the beholder and depends on the perceptions they hold within their mind, heart and and soul.
Maybe you were seeking a different type of answer, but unfortunately I've never read the book of Mormon so couldn't really give an opinion based on it.
Grass is green, that is truth. Water is wet, that is truth. Two plus two will always equal four, that is truth.
In the Begining God created the Heavens and the Earth, that is truth.
If you come up with an alternative to these it does change the truth, grass will always be green, water will always be wet and two plus two will always equal four. If you say that God does not exist or that He didn`t create everything, it will not make Him dissappear just by saying that you don`t believe.
Jehovahs Witness, Mormon, Muslim, Buddists, Sikhs, Judism and also Christianity are all religions. But God is not a religion.
All that is important is that you believe and obey the Word of God as revealed through the second member of the Holy Trinity, Jesus Christ. HIS TRUTH is the only truth that matters.
People are not afraid of the truth, they are afraid of what they will find while seeking the truth. Life is temporary and we will all die. No one knows exactly where they will go when they die until they get there.This planet is tiny and insignificant in the grand scheme of the univerese. these are truths that most people I kow want to act like it does not apply to them.
The truht could be ego crushing, that is why people fear the truth. The absolute truth may challenge fundamental core beliefs of others and this put them in an uncomfortable position because they would feel they grew up living a lie.
I hope this answer helps.
I happen to KNOW exactly where I am going after this life. In my search for truth, I have found the answers the people of this earth seems to be seeking. Unfortunately, they really are afraid of the truth and will not ask the questions necessary to obtain the truth because they really don't want the truth. They want their truth to be THE TRUTH.

Are you afraid of going to Hell?I'm afraid. I'm worried I should be religious to avoid Hell, but I don't believe God would send me to Hell because I don't know what to believe.So are you afraid of going to Hell for all eternity?

Why religious people grieve so much about death and are 'scared to death' of dying if, when they die, the'll be with God forever? What's wrong with dying anyway? Your born condemned to death...Is it not?

The reality is that we are alone in this eternal, dark, and cold universe. Why can't we accept this reality? Death is the end. There is no heaven, and there is no hell. We do not need religion in order to have a purpose in life. The purpose is to survive and not harm...

believers always say non believers are false, but they can't explain their religion logically or rationally. why not even two believers agree on there beliefs, but still go on talking non sense?can anybody explain.

I find the god no god discussion so tired. Yet for some reason when human behavior is discussed good and evil creeps in, sin and virtue. What about humanity and its complexity without tainting it with religious antireligious sentiment?
