On Spiritual Inflation and the Parable of the Talents

I love it when people ask "learning" gospel questions.
What I mean by that is that there are devil's advocate questions, leading questions, questions asked under a hot lamp while hooked up to a polygraph, etc., etc. But sometimes, every once in a while, someone asks an honest "I'm just trying to figure this out here, I'm sure there is a sensible answer and I just need help finding it" gospel question.
I'm not completely sure, but these questions might surface less often now because the Internet knows everything, and we tend to ask it instead.
