  • Strike 2 Mormons I:

    Usually on my way out to school or home I try to avoid the mormons, but once again they found/caught me and gave me the usual manipulative speech.
    I pretended it was working(INTJ powers!) and luckily my Mom saved me.
    I don't know what to do with them anymore.

      Just prove some of their theology as being wrong and against the Bible. I haven't had one visit me for years.

        One time I had Mormons visit me, and were going through their questions.. "do you believe God spoke through Prophets long ago...."

        At some point, I asked them what they thought about John 3:16. I paused a moment, they looked at each other, and I asked, "do you know what John 3:16 says?" The asked if they could come back with somebody else and continue the discussion. They didn't know John 3:16.

          One time the Jehovah's Witnesses left a flyer on our door and I was really bummed I didn't get to talk to them.

              Around thirty five years ago I scared of a pair of Mormons who came to my door. Have not seen any since - two different doors later. They asked something about the church being reestablished, and I responded that it had been around all the time - come inside and let's pray. They had a sudden recollection of someplace else they needed to be.
              Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

                    Nope some are no more than 2-4 years older than me, then they try to tell me about their fellow mormons who go to my high school.
                    I just don't care enough I suppose.
                    I'm sorry you get the strange guys on bicycles though.

                      The curiouser thing is that they wear name tags that call them "Elders", when they're just KIDS!

                            And Joseph Smith is a FOR REALLY Prophet, except, of course, when he says something really dumb, then he's just a guy, and you shouldn't expect him to hear from God on everything.
