.:TESTING TRUTH – HOW CAN I KNOW THIS IS TRUE?

Mormon.org states:

“ ‘I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.’ Book of Mormon, Moroni 10:4 …Feelings from the Holy Ghost are personal revelation to you that confirm the truth of the Book of Mormon and the gospel of Jesus Christ as restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith.” Continue reading Testing Truth

ldsgirlpray.: DOES THE HOLY GHOST ANSWER PRAYER FOR THE BOOK OF MORMON TESTIMONY?

“I was browsing the Internet when I came across your site.  Sounds informative, but I have a question on this statement you made. In your article on Mormon Splinter Groups, the following question was asked: ‘Since all of these movements base their authority on the Book of Mormon and the Prophet Joseph Smith, how can a ‘testimony’ gained through praying about the Book of Mormon be sufficient to prove which church of all of these movements one should join?’  I am curious to know whether you believe in prayers being answered by God.  I don’t know if it would prove anything, but I believe God answers prayers, and if He said it was true then it must be true, and if He said it wasn’t then it is not true.  One thing I do believe in also is the Holy Ghost.  He is known as the Comforter, a Testifier.  If I can’t feel comfort, I don’t know how the Holy Ghost can get to me in helping to comfort me.  So, in this way, I do believe that the Spirit of God can communicate with our spirits through a feeling since we cannot see Him. What do you believe?” Continue reading Don’t you believe the Holy Ghost answers prayer?

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? We suggest the following steps to overcome these foundational Mormon authority barriers. Continue reading How To Witness Effectively To Mormons
