Seth sent me this link about some Evangelical missionaries spreading the word on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Evangelicals Aglow with Their Faith .
Just to make sure the scales are balanced, Salt Lake City has been sending missionaries my way. Several weeks ago some LDS sister missionaries approached my wife in a grocery store parking lot. We were finally able to host them for dinner about a week ago with the caveat that we not discuss our faiths, but just get to know each other personally. Knowing that they are on a limited budget, we let them raid our toiletry stockpile and invited them to use our phone for long distance calls any time they wanted. Tonight, we’re inviting them back for more religious discussion.
Last night as we prepared for bed my wife and I discussed what “the plan” for tonight would be. We think we’ll ask the young women to share with us how they came to gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon and in turn share some of our experiences with the Holy Spirit in our own lives.
Then (time permitting) we’ll most likely make it clear that we’ve thoroughly investigated Mormonism and do not find it credible. We’re happy to have the young women back if they’d like to learn more about our faith. We’re also willing to share our reservations about Mormonism with them if they’d like to attempt to answer our objections. We’d probably be more than happy to have them back for dinner and light discussion if they’d like.
