Today's interview is with Bobby Gilpin. He talks about his ministry to educate the Church on how to respond to Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses. This interview focuses on Mormonism; a sort of mini-crash course. Aren't Mormons just Christians?, differences between Mormonism and Christianity, the use of the term "cult," a brief history of Mormonism, the authority of the Book of Mormon and other books, the importance of dialogue with Mormons, strategies for engagement and primary topics, common mistakes when speaking with Mormons,
the biggest challenges, the significance of Utah, the size and growth of Mormonism, evangelism trips, and more.

Hello Anon, its all about being faithful to what Jesus said we are to do. He said go and make disciples of all nations teaching them to obey what I commanded you.

The Mormon Church teaches a totally different gospel to what Christ and the rest of the bible teaches. In Galatians 1:8 Paul speaks very harshly against this. So showing Mormons the truth of the biblical gospel is the most loving action a Christian could do as it brings them to know Christ for real.

However they are also very free to "get on with it" if they wish.

Enjoyed this interview , thank you! I was raised mormon and came to know Christ when I was 19. I had a friend in high school who was passionate about the lord and gently taught me about true Christianity without attacking the doctrine that had be so ingrained in me. And then I met my husband who was Protestant and continued to teach me to trust the bible and judge everything by Gods word not by a "burning bosom" or other such "spiritual confirmation". The Mormon people hold a special place in my heart and I pray that the Lord can use me to help them come to the true Christ.
