Learn the truth about Mormons

U.S. Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney is scheduled to deliver a speech today about his Mormon faith.
In light of this, at the end of this blog entry, I’ve provided links to several resources about Mormonism.
As I grow stronger in my faith in Jesus Christ, I believe the Holy Spirit is compelling me to be an even bolder witness for the death, burial and resurrection of my personal savior.
I do not agree with the Mormon faith, but have witnessed to Mormon missionaries who were in my neighborhood last summer. I approached two young male missionaries, known as Elders, in their church, and invited them to setup an appointment to meet with me.
Our initial meeting was held in my backyard, where I shared my testimony and asked them to describe why they chose their faith. I write about this first encounter in a future blog entry.
In a second meeting, I treated the missionaries to lunch at a local burger joint. My goal was to share my testimony of what Jesus means to me and has done for me. I tried to do this with kindness, respect and gentleness.
I kept in mind something my pastor said to our Baptist congregation, when he gave a quote usually attributed St. Francis of Assisi, “Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words if necessary.” So, instead of arguing with the Mormons I broke bread with, I tried to show and share with them my love and joy in Christ through my actions.
The flowing are links to info about Mormonism that I’ve used for my personal research:
I read an excellent book by author Ron Rhodes, "Reasoning from the Scriptures with the Mormons":
He also has a book called "The 10 Most Important Things You Can Say to a Mormon" Institute for Religious Research
A Comparison of Mormonism and Historic Christianity: Living Hope Ministries has streaming videos on their site such as The Bible vs. The Book of Mormon:

I don't want to overwhelm you with a lot of info, but I have a real passion for defending my faith, by understanding the beliefs of other religions and cults:

Be blessed and share your personal testimony about Jesus with someone today.
