Danny's story

Danny would be happy to answer any LDS / Mormon related questions you may have, Whether you are in the LDS Church or investigating the Mormon religion. Danny prefers a phone call | 801-546-2148 and would rather not correspond through email or texts.

Danny use to be a Mormon High Priest, and had the responsibility to instruct and prepare young men and women for their future missions.  He served a full-time Mormon mission as a young adult. At the time he truly believed that the LDS Church was the true church.

Having been an active Mormon for sixty years, Danny is fully aware of the heart and mind of those who are convinced the gospel of Joseph Smith is true.  Fortunately through scripture study, prayer, and the Holy Spirit, God opened his eyes and understanding, and brought him into a loving, saving, relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ.

Danny now receive inquiries from Christians around the world who request information about the methods and teachings of these Mormon missionaries.  He also talks to Mormons, who themselves are looking for answers to questions and concerns about their LDS doctrines and practices.  Many Mormons would identify themselves as Christians, but don’t really understand the difference.

It is because the demand for this information is so great, Danny decided to initiate a project never before attempted in this format; entitled – Talking To Mormons. 

What does the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Teach?

"It originated from an experience I had a couple of years go, when two Mormon missionaries paid a visit to my home. They came with the intention of encouraging me to return to activity in the LDS Church. As I turned their attention to the Bible for the reasons I found Mormonism to be different from the gospel of Jesus Christ, they were amazed at what they read and learned. Within the same week they returned to my home unannounced to ask me to teach them more. I was spiritually touched and overwhelmed by the honesty and humility they showed in their sincere desire to know truth. It made me realize that these respectful and open conversations between Christians and Mormons are quite possible."

Why I Left Mormonism – Part 1
I had returned from an LDS mission, got married in the temple, was very active in the Church, when I began to feel that something was missing in my spiritual walk. That something, I recognized was a greater relationship with my Savior. I decided one day to read the New Testament but this time with fresh eyes.
The Apostasy – Part 1
The LDS teach that after the death of Jesus, wicked people killed the Apostles. And with their death, priesthood keys were taken from the earth. Over time the doctrines were corrupted, and changes were made in church organization and ordinances.
Eternal Families – Part 2
Latter-day Saints believe that because families are ordained of God, they are the most important social unit in time and in eternity. What does the Bible say about that?
Matthew 28; Mark 16; Luke 24; John 20-21 – Come Follow Me
In this lesson – we will learn about the most important event in the history of mankind – the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Eternal Families – Part 1
If Families are essential in Heaven, as taught by the LDS, then how did Jesus become exalted as God in the Mormon “preexistence” without being married?
Mormons, now non-Mormons
2 Nephi 26-30
Why would a book claiming to be scripture want to be associated with having a “familiar spirit”???? Is Jesus Christ – Eternal God???? How reliable is the Bible? Why was the word “white” changed to “pure” in referencing the righteous Lamanites???? We will answer these questions and more in this lesson.
The Apostasy – Part 2
The LDS Scriptures teach that the Apostle John never died? And that he was permitted to live on earth without tasting death until Christ’s return?
