What does a Mormon mean when they say they had a "strong testimony" or a "weak testimony"?
In the Evangelical tradition I grew up in, a "testimony" was basically a story. To "give your testimony" meant telling the story of who you were before you converted (or "got saved"), how and why you converted, and who you are now.
I've been watching a bunch of ex-Mormon videos recently, and testimony-as-story doesn't seem to fit how they use the word "testimony".
My guess at this point is that a Mormon "testimony" is something like a positive feeling. If you have a "strong testimony", you have strong positive feelings about the religion and your place in it. Is that anywhere near what it means? If not, what does it mean?
