Mormon visit

April 1, 2007

To make a long story, short:

We’ve got a couple of Mormon missionary guys coming over tomorrow (Monday) night at 6:00pm.  They know where I went to school and that I’m going to seminary, etc. but they still wanted to come over for a chat, so we’ll see what happens.  Pray that Steph and I would listen to them; not their shpiel, but to them.  Steph and I want to communicate that we care about them.  Pray that a seed would be planted and that thru us, God would cause them to question the choices they’ve made, see the falsehoods in their book and the overwhelming truths of ours.

    I imagine if they are sending someone to try and convert a seminary student it won’t be one of their shakey members of the faith. Remember that since this is a cult there are strong social issues involved as well. In order to change their faith they will have to abandon all ties with their families and friends and that is not something anybody would do lightly.

    Also remember that they are used to being argued with and this wont be the first time someone tried to convert them. In that respect as well you may find yourself at a disadvantage.

    I do hope it goes well. Just be careful.

    Slothy,

    Duly noted. Those are good things to keep in mind. Thanks for saying that.

    Incidentally, have you ever read any of the book of mormon? It reads like an uneducated person trying to mimick the King James Bible. It really is a situation where it is hard to believe anyone would fall for such an obvious attempt at manufacturing a religion for personal gain. Especially if you look at the history of Joseph Smith. This wasn’t the first time he fabricated an amazing story to try for profit.

    Read bits and pieces. You’re totally right.

    The fellas that came tonight gave us a few places that they thought we should start at. I want to engage with them that way, so I think I’ll take a little bit of time to see what I’m up against (super subjective touch feely it turns out). Anyway, they’re open to coming back to talk and we’d love to have ’em. We’ve got a few more questions that they either didn’t answer or we thought of about two seconds after they left.
