A few years ago I met with Mormon Missionaries and then joined the church. I left after 3 weeks of being baptized. My friend listened to the Missionaries and joined a year later. I thinking I was losing my friend (I don’t know this for sure- it is just how I feel) joined again. I walked away slowly- but am now seeing error and don’t think I will every be back. My friend on the other hand joined and LOVES it she is TBM all the way.
She had really no religious background. Her dad was an atheist or agnostic and mom was a Lutheran who never went to church much. So it was easy for her to believe in the whole church.
She now lives in South Carolina and I am unable to really help her see the errors in Mormonism. I guess I made it my life goal to plant seeds that she is in a cult. I know this is a silly task since she is far away and may never leave.
My question is- How can I plant seeds by using the church related materials. I mean if I sent her a book or something that she might read and question something.
She watched with me (before she moved) the Bible Vs the Book of Mormon and thought those people were deceived and it was ‘anti’ material.
I honestly don’t know enough of the religion to counteract her comments. I know religion and the ‘anti’ stuff. Such as Joseph Smith had many wives, wasn’t martyred, etc. I was told there were Joseph Smith fraud stories and I didn’t realize there were any.
I guess I would like to learn more, but I think I need to know how a Mormon thinks first- I was always sort of a doubting Mormon. My friend keeps telling me she saw my testimony growing. I think she feels bad I left the church and I feel bad she stayed. I would love a book or something else to send to her that doesn’t scream ‘anti’ but will make her question. I hope this makes sense and that you all can help me
I feel like I am wasting my time, but I pray her eyes are opened everyday
