    An acquaintance of mine, Jim Spencer and his wife, Margaretta, were heavily involved in the LDs church in southeast Idaho. He is now pastoring a CHristian church. His story was basically that he was presented biblical truth, saw it in action and was loved into the kingdom. He said that is the most effective way to reach Mormons-- love them with the truth in a loving way.

    Jim wrote a book Beyond Mormonism (Chosen Books- 1984) but I don't know if it is still in print.

    You are truly dealing with an insidious cult and it does cost them nearly everything to leave it. Jim nearly lost his wife and kids and family because of what Jesus did for him.

    God bless.

    I am just a miserable sinner saved by grace and called according to His purposes

      My husband was going through a very hard time, years ago, when the Mormons came. He had them over a few times but didn't get any answers.

      He started asking a lot of "Why does God allow suffering? Why me? Why do we see this as reality when it's all made of atomic particles? Doesn't that mean nothing is real, we only perceive it that way?" He actually "broke" the missionary assigned to him and the guy was recalled. Ron had called the house and they told him not to call again - and they never came back.

      I guess we are on a blacklist somewhere.

      " I have had an increasing burden to engage in some down and dirty, street evangelism." March 6, 2010

      Isaiah 6:8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

      Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

      Matthew 22:9 NIV
      'So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’

      I'm praying for you daily!

        My dad's family were all Mormans. Dad went over to his mother's house every week and shared with her the Gospel for thirty years. She died a Mormon at 94 years old. It was hard growing up with Mormons as a child. We were the "Baptists," the outcasts, traitors to the family heritage. But they were insistent that we spent all holidays together and Dad made us go to be a witness. I remember, as a child, cringing as my uncle would begin his prayer before dinner with..."Our Heavenly Father..." I would wonder who his Father was? One time I went to the Mormon ward on a Sunday evening. The bishop was bragging that Baptists were the easiest to convert because they didn't know the Baptist doctrines. I thought that was interesting! After all those years of witnessing, not one of my Dad's family has ever accepted Christ. When Dad went to glory we stopped spending holidays etc.

          Is Jesus God?

          Then i give them the gospel and when they still dont believe me I kindly ask them to leave.

          It does us no good to argue just to argue. give them the good news and let the Holy Ghost do its work in them.
          When I asked this they said "yes".

          Sorry just trying to understand it all
          Therefore do not worry about tomorrow,
          for tomorrow will worry about its own things.
          Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

              Blind leaders of the blind....

              For the last couple months I've been going back and forth doing my best to witness to mormons on various sites. Feel like I have gotten NO WHERE! Is it just me? I wonder if Jesus felt this way when dealing with the Pharisees. They have this certain arrogance where they have all the answers and would rather follow blindly then to listen to any common sence. Today I finally cracked ran my mouth rather harshly and probably loss all credibility I had with them, if any? I feel like I know more about mormonism than most mormons at this point LOL. The more I learn the more frustrated I get. Am I wasting my time? Just venting but any suggestions welcome.

              Hi Steveo, here's a few verse's that reveal the thought's of Christ Jesus in regards to a similar situation after the Pharisees rejected the truth.

              "Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

              But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind.

              And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."
              Matthew 15:12-14

(One wrong prophesy = not a prophet). The Christian is very compassionate and easy going but one by one they prove that each of Mormanism's prophets including Joseph Smith are not prophets of God.

                Maybe you can find something in the video to use. BTW...the site I purchased the video from it cost $10 but offered it free to any Morman that wants it.
                I bet this is the video a Mormon lady that visited with my pastor recently had seen. She had seen it on YouTube I think; called my pastor out of the blue... asked all the right questions... a few days later my pastor visited them in their home. Today they were attending our church, even came to my Sunday School class. I was out of town on a Gideon assignment, so I didn't get to meet them. The lady told my wife they have been under intense pressure from the local LDS community. With God's grace, I pray they are able to withstand the pressure to the point they can make their own, genuine profession of faith.

                But the video must be a good one...

                  I tried a similar thing with my JW relatives, i.e. pointing out all the times their 'prophets' have been wrong; but they just continue to make excuses for them. I haven't seen or talked with any of my JW relatives in over a year so I assume they are all still stuck in that darkness. I continue to pray for them.
                  Ph 3:15 (paraphrased):...And if on some point you and I think differently, that too God will make clear to us. Only let us live up to what we have already attained.

                    What to do when the culties come a knockin' at your door.

                    Step 1 - Be polite.

                    Step 2 - Proclaim the Gospel.

                    Step 3 - Rejoice and praise the Lord when they listen to the message, profess repentance and ask Jesus for salvation.

                    What to do when unrepentant culties come a knockin' at your door.

                    Step 1 - Be polite.

                    Step 2 - Proclaim the Gospel.

                    Step 3 - Take whatever pamphlets or other literature they offer and bid them good day. Immediately and without looking at the propaganda in the least, throw it all away thus reducing the amount of said propaganda they have on hand that particular day to foist on some other, perhaps undiscerning, folks.

                    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

                    Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
