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

How does the Book of Mormon justify there being many “high priests” of the “high priesthood” when that clearly contradicts what the New Testament teaches? Did Abraham pay tithing of all he possessed to Melchizedek, or tithing of all from the spoils of war? Did LDS Bishops and Stake presidents ever receive a percentage of the tithing they collected for the services they performed?

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."

1 Nephi 16-22
Is there archaeological evidence in the Arabian region that supports the Book of Mormon narrative? Is the place called Nahom exclusive to the Book of Mormon or is it derived from a Biblical source?
Book of Abraham – Part 4
The Book of Abraham is perhaps the biggest reason church members are leaving Mormonism. The reason is because there is plenty of evidence to show this LDS Scripture is fraudulent.
Word of Wisdom Part 1
During early LDS meetings the men would spit nasty tobacco juices on the floor. After words, Joseph’s wife Emma had to clean the dirty floor boards. She was so disgusted that she asked her husband to do something about it. Her complaints led the Prophet to ask God whether tobacco use was appropriate for Latter-day Saints. And the Lord’s response came in the form of a revelation that covered far more than just tobacco. It also restricted the consumption of wine, liquor, meat, and hot drinks.

What does it mean to be foreordained? What does it mean to be part of a royal priesthood, or a peculiar people?
Mosiah 1-3
Were sacrifices and burnt offerings in the Book of Mormon done appropriately according to the Law of Moses? How many different temples were mentioned in the Book of Mormon? What does it mean to receive a new name? How do the Book of Mormon prophets disagree with Joseph Smith when it comes to the nature of God? The answers to these questions and more coming up.
God: Spirit or Body – Part 2
When Joseph Smith wrote the Book of Mormon around 1828 to 1829, his theological background was in Protestant Christianity. At that time, everyone who followed Mormonism believed in the one God, who was a spirit.  Many years later, Smith changed his theology and then altered the Book of Mormon passages to accommodate his changed thinking – separating God from Jesus. This is an Excerpt.
Acts 1-5 – Come Follow Me
When were the “times of restitution of all things” accomplished? Was it fulfilled in Joseph Smith’s day or Jesus Christ’s?
