HOW CAN I SHARE MY FAITH WITH MORMONS WITHOUT GETTING INTO AN ARGUMENT?
“Something funny happened today. Two young Mormon missionaries walked by our street for the second time asking to share their unique ‘message of salvation.’ I told them that I have known Jesus as my personal Savior since I was eight. They asked me a bunch of questions and said that they want to come back at a more convenient time. I said I would be willing to talk with them. However, I am not a confrontational person and I don’t particularly like debating, but since I keep seeing them and I knew your ministry could help, I agreed to talk with them again. What do you suggest I share that will not turn into an argument?”Read more
I’M FRUSTRATED! HOW CAN I GET THROUGH TO MORMONS?
“I’m discouraged. To me, it just seems like there is NO WAY to reach Mormons for the real Gospel. As an evangelical Christian, I do not want to slam my front door in their faces like some people do. I really do want to talk to them, but not on their terms—only on my terms.
After all, the burden of proof lies with the one making the claim. They must prove to me that the Book of Mormon is God’s inspired Scripture and that Joseph Smith was indeed a true Prophet of God. They must prove to me that God was once a man and that men can become ‘gods.’ I have stayed awake at night trying to figure out a way to reach these people with convincing and powerful arguments from both the Bible and their own Book of Mormon. Yet, every time, regardless of whether they can answer my questions or prove their points, they always go back to bearing their ‘testimony’ and telling me that they ‘prayed’ about the Book of Mormon so they ‘KNOW’ it is true. Perhaps you can give me insight into how I can break through their blindness with the real Truth of God’s Word.”Read more

DO MORMONS ACCEPT THE WRITINGS OF MORMON LEADERS AS AUTHORITATIVE IN DEFINING MORMON DOCTRINE?
A MORMON CRITICISM:
“For members of the LDS Church, the only sources of absolute appeal for our doctrines are the Standard Works. In looking at your website, I couldn't help but notice that none of the answers to the questions posed are resourced to the LDS Scriptures. If you are attempting to provide accurate information about the LDS Church, why not cite the LDS canon?Read more
