MRM’s Bill McKeever and Eric Johnson will be leading people to countries full of biblical history. The main portion of the trip is Greece (including Athens, Delphi, and Corinth) and Rome (including Pompeii and Rome) as we follow Paul while reading the New Testament (especially the book of Acts). You will never read your New Testament the same. In addition, there will be optional trips to Turkey (7 churches of Revelation) and northern Italy (Florence, Venice) for those who would like to add on. Those who register ($300 per person) by May 31, 2018 will get up to $200 off the price of the trip and extensions. Listen to a special Viewpoint on Mormonism that aired on April 10, 2018 as well. This might be a trip you ought to consider! Click here for more information.

Missionary Numbers, Converts Keep Going Down, Down, Down

On the first day of its spring General Conference on Saturday, March 31, 2018, the LDS Church announce how many convert baptisms took place in 2017 as well as how many missionaries are currently on the field. The past two years have seen a huge decrease in missionary participation and conversions to the church. Why is that? Read more here.

Review of “This is My Doctrine”: The Development of Mormon Theology

MRM’s Bill McKeever and Eric Johnson will spend the month of March (and going into April) taking a closer look at a book authored by BYU professor Charles Harrell in a 25-episode podcast series of Viewpoint on Mormonism. The book can be a valuable resource to utilize when sharing the Christian faith with a Latter-day Saint since Harrell provides the correct interpretations to a number of biblical verses so often misused by LDS leaders and laypeople. A 50-page set of notes used in the podcast series is also available for an electronic gift of any size to MRM (see the front of this article for more info). It’s an interesting series that we think many of our listeners will enjoy. For a written review of the book as well as the podcast links, click here.

Top 10 Teachings of Mormonism not supported by the Book of Mormon

According to Joseph Smith in the History of the Church 4:461: “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.” Just what are those precepts talked about in the Book of Mormon that make it the most correct? If this is the case, then why does Mormonism have so many teachings that are not found in or are even contradicted by the Book of Mormon?

 The Dead Sea Scrolls: It’s Time for LDS laypeople to stop using these manuscripts as evidence for Mormonism

While church leaders and many LDS scholars no longer point to the Dead Sea Scrolls for support of ancient Mormon doctrines, there are some who continue to do so. The parallels used by those Mormons hoping to find a smoking gun connecting Mormonism to the people who copied and compiled the Dead Sea Scroll texts are quite a stretch, including the assertion that the Essenes believed in the preexistence, eternal families, and temple ordinances. When the Scrolls and the lives of the Essenes are studied, however, these parallels cannot be found. Besides an extended article with documented evidence, a week-long Viewpoint on Mormonism podcast series takes a closer look at this topic. Click here.

How important is the Trinity in Christianity?

trinityTo 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.

The Gospel Topics Essays–Introduction and Links

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. To see these links to the LDS Church website along with MRM’s responses, click here.
