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

Why isn’t the age of eight, mentioned in the Book of Mormon as a minimum age for baptizing children? Why would Nephite Christians in AD 400 be worshipping in Jewish synagogues? How did Mormon quote the apostle Paul when they lived on opposite sides of the world?

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."

Galatians 1-3⚠️
Paul warned the Galatian saints about those who would corrupt or change the gospel of Jesus Christ by preaching another kind of gospel which included faith PLUS works to be justified before God. Can you think of any religious organization that teaches that today?
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.
Matthew 27; Mark 15; Luke 23 – Come Follow Me
Is everything that is necessary to restore you to God and give you eternal life with Him already been accomplished? Jesus said, “It is finished.” Do you believe that is done? Or, are you still DOING, DOING, DOING?
Jacob 5-7
Do olive trees grow in vineyards? Or, do olive trees grow in groves? Are the titles – Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit – used anachronistically in the Book of Jacob? Did the Nephites speak and write using French words? We will address each of these questions in today’s lesson.
2 Nephi 1-5
Is it possible that Joseph Smith wrote himself – by name – into both the Book of Mormon and the Bible? Were the Nephites a temple-building people? Is there racism taught and practiced in the Book of Mormon? We’ll answer these and more questions in this episode.
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?
Virgin Birth
If all humans, Mary included, are literally God’s spirit children, born in a preexistence via a sexual relationship between Heavenly Father and Mother in Heaven. If God physically impregnated Mary, then the Jesus of Mormonism was created through an incestuous relationship.
Name of the Church – Part 2
Why would Jesus instruct Joseph Smith in 1830 to call it the “Church of Christ”, then change it in 1834 to the “Church of Latter Day Saints” and, then change once again in 1838? Why wouldn’t Jesus get it right the first time? Why would He take the name of Christ completely out of the name of the church for four whole years?
