Dating for ex mormons
My life was full of Church activity, but yet so empty? With my knowledge of the “Scriptures,” I was in demand by the fulltime missionaries because I could usually persuade any prospective convert to accept the “validity” of the Mormon viewpoint, but it all began to fall apart when I discovered that DNA proved the Native Americans emigrated from Asia, NOT Jerusalem.
With the Book of Mormon disproved, I didn’t know what to do… Glenn – The following is my story of how I was saved out of Mormonism.
I have found many of the most fundamental teachings of the LDS Church to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.
As a former Mormon Bishop and member who had served that Church for over 32 years and as one who researched and documented what I have learned, I have come to know the true Lord Jesus Christ and His Grace. Rob – I was born into an LDS home and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah.
In my teenage years, I became disillusioned by the inconsistencies I found within the LDS Church. He too had been raised LDS, but had come to know the REAL Jesus of the Bible.
For many years, I believed that I didn’t need God in my life, but yet I still considered myself a Mormon. Through Rob’s patience and the Holy Spirit’s persistence, I accepted this Jesus into my life and found perfect righteousness in Him! Phillip – Raised Mormon and born with an inquisitive mind, I had many questions about the inconsistencies I saw between Mormon doctrine and practice.
Despite writing them down in a 20-page letter and directly handing it to my Stake President, no one sat down to seriously address them.
After I accepted the Lord, I was able to help lead Laura (my future wife at the time) to the Lord. When my new wife, Cheryl, was baptized into Mormonism, I too was reinstated into the Church.
Immediately my Mormon family welcomed me back, but this was short lived when doubts and unanswered questions began to resurface in my mind. My parent’s relationship with each other was not good and when my mom died when I was 12 years old, I was left alone most of the time.
After five years of research, I knew Mormonism was false, but how would I convince Cheryl? Although I accepted Christ 3 months before she died, I was unprepared for the spiritual turmoil I faced when my church fell apart.
At one point, I even served as the Stake Young Women’s President, but when I got divorced, the Church excommunicated me. The first thing that I noticed was a picture of Jesus Christ with his hands on top of the head of the Apostle John ordaining him. I wanted what I had seen in the Mormon missionaries who had visited me.
Then, God got my attention and I became a true adopted child of God. For 9 years, I was active in Mormonism and even served a mission for the LDS Church. I realized that I had been deceived and that the reason I felt empty was because I was looking toward a religion to fill a gap that only a personal relationship with Christ can fill. Bev – I was born and raised LDS in the state of Idaho.
