Here are two important questions to remember when sharing with Mormons.
1. Who is the battle against?
Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
This passage should shape our attitude towards Mormons. They are deceived and are deceiving others. The battle is against the forces of darkness, not the Mormon at your door. We need to show love through our actions and our words. A nasty attitude has no place when encountering Mormon missionaries. The actual enemy deceiving the Mormon is Satan!
2. Who does the saving?
Romans 1:16-17 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ‘BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.’”
Paul says he is not ashamed of gospel; what is the gospel? Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for sin we deserve. Through the saving power of Christ anyone can experience eternal life. God has opened a door to His kingdom through His Son Jesus Christ.
Who does the saving? Paul says it is the power of God for salvation. We need to remember we save no one! This should take the pressure off when you talk with a Mormon or anyone about Jesus. What this means is we can rejoice at the opportunity to talk about spiritual issues and don’t have the pressure to lead someone to Christ. God saves we don’t; the ball is in His court. If the person doesn’t accept Christ, we can still celebrate having the privilege of being a witness for Jesus.
Always remember who the enemy is and who saves. This knowledge will help you relax.
