HOW TO WITNESS EFFECTIVELY TO MORMONS — Breaking the LDS Authority Barrier Step-by-Step

“I feel sorry for you!” exclaimed a middle-aged Mormon lady to a Christian teenager handing out Gospel tracts at a Mormon event. “You have some truth, but you don’t have the fullness of the Gospel like we do. We have priesthood authority and modern-day Prophets and Apostles to lead us. What could your church possibly have to offer us?”

This prideful attitude is common among members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). They believe that “plain and precious” Gospel doctrines have been removed from the Christian Bible so that additional books of Mormon Scripture (i.e., Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price) are needed for a complete understanding of the Gospel. The LDS Church teaches that when the Biblical Apostles died, special “priesthood authority” to act in the name of God was removed from the earth. Thus, Mormons claim that Jesus Christ used John the Baptist, Peter, James, and John to confer upon Joseph Smith missing Aaronic and Melchizedek priesthoods so that he would hold the authority necessary to “restore” God’s true Church to earth in 1830. Due to these spiritual superiority claims, how should Christians approach Mormons who think their LDS Church has more to offer than other churches?

In addition to the King James Version of the Bible, Mormons regard as “Scripture” three other books produced by Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism. These books are: The Book of Mormon (a translation of gold plates that allegedly contained the record of ancient inhabitants of America), The Doctrine and Covenants (a transcription of prophecies and revelations that Joseph Smith claimed to have received from God), and The Pearl of Great Price (a translation of an ancient Egyptian ‘Book of Breathings’ papyrus that Smith claimed contained the writings of the biblical patriarch Abraham).
