The RLDS drama is so small in comparison to the Brighamite LDS shenanigans of polygamy/theocracy. A few of the leadership flounce away, basically peacefully, a few others pass away. JS 3.0 gently chides the Saints in matters of ceremony.

You'll know you're in the right path when you know you're following God's will, but this won't tell you specifically how to know you know. Definitely be a martyr for your god. Does it matter if other people are injured or killed because you won't deny your god? Nope! Their needs don't matter, only you not denying a god you probably aren't entirely certain if you're following correctly.

This gets real dark, real quick.
