Wholesome and hardworking, serious and sacrificial . . . the image of the people called Mormons is exemplary. Their personal discipline is praiseworthy. Their advertising is first class. Their business presence is booming. Their humanitarian projects get headlines. Their tithing commitment is commendable. Their young missionaries are meritorious. Men and women between ages 19 and 25 sacrifice two years of their lives as missionary volunteers. Who are these "good and upstanding people," and what do they believe?
Questions to Ask and Answer
“Why are people, even Christians, attracted to the Mormon Religion?”
People are attracted to Mormonism for the very reasons that people are attracted to any religion: they appeal to our three God-given inner needs for love, for significance and for security.
"Do Mormons Believe in the Bible?"
Yes, but conditionally. Their Eighth Article of Faith says, “We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.”
What God Says
"Before Me no god was formed, nor will there be one after Me. I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from Me there is no savior." Isaiah 43:10-11
