Lately Mormons or Mormonism (LDS or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) has been in magazines, blogs and social media (especially on Facebook). They are presented in a chic, tech savvy, cool and just an ordinary Christian denomination way. You might have encountered them and find them very nice. But despite of what image they portray, they are not biblical Christians. The following are apologetic websites that will help you understand Mormonism and how we Christians reach them with the gospel. They also provide a vast number of free resources like articles, hand outs, tracts, videos, mp3, online books etc. to assist in this quest:
Mormonism Research Ministry (www.mrm.org) – according to their website MRM “is a missionary/apologetics organization that was organized in 1979 to propagate the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to critically evaluate the differences between Mormonism and biblical Christianity”. With a clean look and how they response to issues of Mormonism you’ll find this website friendly. Sign up for their free newsletter which is a great one. Plus check out their blog “Mormon Coffee”.
SourceFlix/Living Hope Ministries (http://sourceflix.com/) – a video ministry that produced cutting edge movies geared to Mormonism (and for Christians too). Several videos they produced are DNA vs. The Book of Mormon, The Bible vs. The Book of Mormon, Called to be Free and Lifting the Veil of Polygamy which you can watch online for free . These movies gives an honest look at LDS church from credible experts (Bible Scholars, scientist and archeologist) in and out of Mormonism. Please don’t miss the movie “The Bible vs. The Book of Mormon”. Convincing and thought provoking, their videos will become your valuable tool!
4 Mormon/ Witnesses for Jesus Inc. (http://4mormon.org/) – I love this ministry. Well organized and updated in their activities. They have special features in their website like the support group and ex-Mormon testimonies. Lots of sections to read and explore. The online materials like tracts and hand outs are awesome. You can download it or order an info packet about Mormonism by mail for free.
Utah Lighthouse Ministry (http://www.utlm.org/) – probably the most extensive and well research in the doctrine and history of the Mormon Church. The Tanners (Jerald and Sandra) are former Mormons with a deep connection to the religion. They provide their impressive researched documents on their website which the LDS tried to suppress online.
Saints Alive (http://saintsalive.com/) – Known for The God Makers book and documentary, Ed Decker, is founder of Saints Alive and his website boast with resources like tracts, podcast and his personal blog. In recent years, Decker expanded his ministry to groups like Jehovah’s Witnesses, Islam and Masonic Lodge. Nevertheless, the section on LDS is still stands out.
