Mention the Council of Nicaea in public and you are bound to get a number of negative responses from Mormons. Do skeptics have reason to doubt the results of the Council of Nicaea? Or is there more to the story than most critics guess? Christians who want to share their faith on the Trinity and Godhead need to understand what took place almost 17 centuries ago in a small city in modern-day Turkey called Nicaea.

One of MRM’s regular outreach events occur outside the public open house events at new Mormon temples. This summer MRM’s Eric Johnson stood outside the Philadelphia, PA and Fort Collins, CO temples, distributing more than 4,000 of our Mormon Temple Open House newspapers to those going inside. (Note: MRM has attended 31 of these events since 1993!) The vast majority of those who come are LDS. With that as a background, here are 10 of the most common comments we receive, with a short response to each. (Also listen to Bill and Eric discuss this topic in a two-part Viewpoint on Mormonism series.) Click here.
Seventy Tad Callister gave a 2014 talk where he utilized most of the points from the unattributed “17 Points of the True Church.” Should the modern church be characterized by living human prophets and apostles, specifically named after Christ?

Also check out the 15-part Viewpoint on Mormonism series. Click here.
While there are no perfect churches, it’s commanded in the Bible for Christians to be in felllowship with other believers. Since 2012, MRM has recommended churches throughout the state of Utah.

To that question, we believe that accepting the Trinity is a cornerstone of the biblical Christian church. Unfortunately, Mormonism’s leaders have not only denied this belief but even mocked it. So just what is the Trinity? Is the teaching even understandable? Check out our new page that offers articles, YouTube videos, blogs, and podcasts. If the Trinity is true, it needs to be defended by the Christian who has questioning friends and neighbors. Click here to see what’s available.
In an attempt to deal with several vital historical issues propagated by the LDS Church throughout the years, the Mormon Church has been producing essays since late 2013 under its “Gospel Topics” section of its lds.org website, attempting to reconcile the facts with what had been taught by earlier leaders and church manuals.

While there are many resources available for adults on the topic of Mormonism from a Christian point of view, nothing has been directed toward Christian teens. Until now. MRM’s Eric Johnson has authored Mormonism 101 for Teens: The Religion of the Latter-day Saints Simplified, a 116-page book that will help make the Mormon religion understandable to teens and interested adults everywhere. To see the index, listen to podcasts with the author, read the introduction, and order the book from MRM’s Store, click here.
