The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) has 90,000 missionaries in the field, seeking to convert members of Christian churches. Our guest, a former LDS member, will join us to examine the core claims of Mormonism and look at them from a biblical perspective.
He will share insider knowledge, personal stories, cultural insights, evangelistic wisdom, and best practices to help Christians fortify their own faith while learning how to share their faith wisely and effectively with Latter-day Saints.
Is your understanding of who God is and how He works in our lives today a little sketchy? Everybody has beliefs about God. What we think about God is the most important thing about us. Because God is the most important topic a person can think about, the way we think about God (our theology) is our most valuable and important collection of our thoughts and words. Join us to learn what basic Christian theology is and is not.
