Well as the title says it. I had 3 Mormons "call" on me a few minutes ago. This is the first time being on the other side of the door knocking. I actually feel sorry for them right now. Pretty much everything they said I about their Book of Mormon, I was able to debunk because of actually know the Bible. In a nice way I told them they are very much like the JW's and I'm not going to leave one cult for another....and when I tried to hand the Book of Mormon back to them (I had taken it to flip through it and then I tried to give it back), first they wouldn't take it and now I'm stuck with a book of Mormon. I wish I had learned that stratagy as a JW (hand the book to the householder to look at and then refuse to take the book back), I would have been able to place more books! And then second one of them was talking about how their Mr Smith is a prophet of God....etc.
So these are the questinos I asked them.
Do you believe Jesus is the son of God?
Yes, yes, yes (that was the 3 of them answering)
Do you believe God sent him?
Yes, yes, yes
Do you believe Jesus was crucified and died for all men?
Yes, yes, yes.
Do you believe Jesus was a perfect man?
Yes, yes, yes
Do you believe Jesus was the greatest prophet then that God could have sent to us?
Yes, yes,....(shaking his head no), nnnnnahh...yes
So if Jesus was the greatest and most perfect prophet God could send and the people of Jesus time killed him, why would God send any other prophet when he has already sent the most perfect and greatest prophet?
The guy who started to say no to my question of Jesus being a prophet started rambling on about something...I stopped listening...but it was interesting the other Elder Mormon I could tell he was thinking about what I said and then you could see the light of understanding or comprehension go off.
As I was listening to them, it was like deja vu to what the JW have been cramming down my throat....If it wasn't for the nice little elder badges I would have thought I was talking to JW's.
I actually feel pretty good that I was able to hold my own against 3 Mormon's
