ENCOUNTER WITH MORMONS

Jesus Did It!

By: Kasia Farrington Coe

One day the Mormons came to visit my home.  My mother was impressed by the two friendly young men who looked so clean cut.  Their names were John and Paul.  As they presented their faith, I recognized that they had belonged to what I considered a cult.  I had studied the beliefs of various movements that diverged from Christianity to form their own sects.  We called these movements cults. 
 
I knew who to call about this matter.  I immediately called up my friend Michael, who was my Pastor's son, and asked him to help me to witness to these two men.  Michael gladly took on the challenge.  He studied their material and also studied apologetic material.  He made several photocopies of information and excerpts from their sacred books.  We were ready for them!
 
The discussion with the Mormons was intense.  I distinctly remember the moment when Michael revealed to them that one of their founders thought that Satan did a good thing by getting Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. 
 
Quoted from an article from: Let Us Reason website called, "I Bear you My testimony":
 
Yet Brigham Young said, “The devil told the truth, what is the mystery about it? ...I do not blame Mother Eve, I would not have had her miss eating the forbidden fruit for anything in the world.” (Prophet Brigham Young, Deseret News, p. 308, June 18, 1873.)
 
We used only the Bible as our defense against all the bizarre teachings of the Mormon founders.  We showed them how these beliefs conflicted with what the Word of God had to say.  When Michael proceeded to then confront them concerning the forbidden fruit, he asked, "Didn't the Serpent cast doubt on the Word of God when he told her, 'Hath God said?'"  It all hit one of the Mormons like a ton of bricks because he saw clearly that the church teachings were at variance with the actual teachings of the Bible.  John was visibly shaken.  He suddenly was asking Michael what church he could go to that teaches the truth.  Then Michael proceeded to tell John about his father's denomination which was The Church of the Nazarene.
 
I was disappointed because I didn't want Michael to point them to another religious institution but directly to Jesus himself and the Word of God because the Bible says we are not a building but living stones.

1 Peter 2:5 ... you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 

Paul saw that John was very visibly shaken so he asked to talk to him privately on our front porch.  He spoke to John briefly; then they had to leave.  They said they would continue our discussion at their next meeting with us.  By the time we saw them again, they told us that their Pastor advised them not to have anymore religious or doctrinal discussions with them but just to have fellowship with them.  I decided to give them each copies of a book we had discovered which showed them the truth about Mormonism called, The Godmakers.  We gave them each a copy of this book and they both received it.  Then we simply became buddies with them for the remainder of their time in town.  We went bikeriding with them.  Once we visited them to bring a cake.  They were lonely having been sent so far away from their homes to be missionaries.  They were glad that we cared about them.  We decided to show love to them hoping that perhaps someday God would be able to reach them.

A Special Message:  http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
