Finding a Fellowship in Utah: A List of Recommended Church Bodies in the Beehive State

We've checked out the statements of faith for many Utah churches and have put together a list of recommended fellowships for the Beehive state. We'll talk more about this new page on the Friday, July 25th Viewpoint on Mormonism.  

Quote of the Week

“A common tactic used by those who are trying to destroy faith is called a ‘straw man’ argument. This is done by setting up a false image—a straw man—of the truth and then attacking the false image in order to convince others the true image is false. A simple example of this is a child accusing parents who won’t let him play until he gets his work done of not wanting him to have any fun. This is faulty reasoning, but it is often used to deceive others. Sometimes others claim that Latter-day Saints believe something that we don’t believe. They claim that the false belief is false and then show that it is false. It has nothing to do with what we really believe but is an attempt to make us seem to be in error.”

A Look at the Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Fielding Smith

During 2014, LDS members will be studying the latest manual published by their church, Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Fielding Smith We will evaluate this book regularly, chapter by chapter, by showing interesting quotes and providing an Evangelical Christian take on this manual. These reviews are written by MRM's Eric Johnson.

 

Doesn’t the good works (fruit) produced in Mormonism prove this is the true church?

Pointing to Mormonism’s welfare program, relief supplies during times of disaster, and other humanitarian efforts, some Latter-day-Saints believe that “fruit” such as these legitimizes their church. Should the LDS Church's "good works" legitimize its standing as "Christian"?

If I no longer believe the teachings of the Mormon Church, should I remain in the church or leave it for good?

A few years ago there seemed to be a movement to encourage those leaving Mormonism for Christianity to remain active in the LDS Church. After all, the rationale goes, wouldn’t there be a better chance for one’s friends and relatives to convert to Christianity if someone (a new Christian) was able to stay in the local LDS branch or ward and, though covertly, let everyone know the truth? Is this a reasonable rationale?

Do I need to bother submitting a letter of resignation to the Mormon Church? (How do I do it?)

Upon leaving the Mormon Church, every Latter-day Saint needs to determine whether or not to have his/her name taken off the church rolls. Should this be done? How does this process work?

Starting at the Finish Line: The Gospel of Grace for Mormons

In the world of Christian apologetics to the LDS community exists a number of books written from several different angles. For author John B. Wallace of Starting at the Finish Line, the target audience for Starting at the Finish Line is clearly marked throughout: those who are current believers in his former religion. Wallace, who is a practicing dentist in Southern California, hopes to reach out to “transitioning Mormons,” the “primary focus of his personal ministry.” Thus, his book aims to communicate with Latter-day Saints in a way that they can understand as delineated by someone familiar with their situation and worldview. A review of the book.
