Talking to Mormons is a source for anyone wanting to learn more about Mormonism and Christianity.

Who is Mahonri Moriancumer? What does the made-up word “deseret” mean? How is it possible that there was transparent glass in 2200 BC, when transparent glass had not been invented for thousands of years later? Did the Lord make it clear to the brother of Jared that He was both the Father and the Son?

Danny's story

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."
