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."

Polygamy – Part 1
God never commanded polygamy in the Bible. God emphasized monogamy in marriage. God commanded men not to have multiple wives.
3 Nephi 27 – 4 Nephi
What does it mean to be “twinkled?” If, the Three Nephite Disciples were left on earth to bring many souls to Jesus, how can the LDS Church claim there was a complete apostasy? Why did Jesus make such a big deal about the name of His church? Why does Jesus prefer fair and delightsome people over those of a darker skin color?
I Never Knew You – Part 1
– If you have a modern-day apostle telling its members in a world-wide General Conference that the Bible is wrong and the Joseph Smith Translation is inspired – in spite of contradictory statements in the Book of Mormon – as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, what do you do with that information?
Hebrews 1-6 ~ Come Follow Me
If the scriptures teach that God spoke through His prophets in the past and has now spoken to us in these last days through His Son – Why do religious sects like Mormonism claim the need to have living prophets?
Acts 6-9 – Come Follow Me
Today, we are going to talk about three great witnesses of the resurrected Lord.
Romans 4-6 – Come Follow Me
Giving the Sabbath a Rest
There is no other Sabbath rest besides Jesus. He alone satisfies the requirements of the Law, and He alone provides the sacrifice that atones for sin. Believers today, being under the New Covenant, are not bound to keep the sign of the Old Covenant. The New Covenant is better.
Helaman 1-6
How are Nephi and Lehi’s experience in prison similar to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego of the Old Testament? Who was the most notorious Book of Mormon leader of a band of robbers and murderers? The Book of Mormon is proof that the prosperity gospel does not work. What do secret signs and secret words in the Book of Mormon have to do with the modern temple endowment?
