As we have seen over the past few weekends, the Mormon doctrines concerning God and the Christian doctrines are completely different. Where Christians worship a God that is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent Mormons worship a god that was once a man. A god with limited knowledge that is finite. Christians worship a triune God with three personalities while Mormons view each personality as a separate god.
What about the average Mormon you are likely to meet? Most are completely unaware of the official teachings of the Mormon church. Historically Mormons have not done much in the way of theology. In fact finding books on Mormon theology is extremely difficult. One is left to read the various Mormon writings and make decision for themselves. When I originally did the research for the comparison of the Mormon doctrine of god the only Mormon resource I found was Bruce R. McConkie’s ” Mormon Doctrine Second Edition” published by the Deseret Book Company in 1966.
When witnessing Mormons will ask a person to read the Book of Mormon and pray if it is true. If it is true one will have a burning in the bosom which is supposed to be God’s way of letting you know the truth. one is to accept the revealed truth and not question it.
As Christians we need to approach Mormons with love while gently getting them to answer questions regarding the official beliefs as compared to orthodox Christianity.
Only by patient loving direction can one hope to lead another to the truth.
