3. Choose one or more topics.
a. Unveiling Grace: The Story of How We Found Our Way out of the Mormon Church (20 minutes to 90 minutes). This is our testimony to Jesus interspersed with doctrinal differences between Biblical Christianity and Mormonism. Anywhere from 20 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on what works for your church or organization. The longer options have more doctrinal comparisons that we discovered when reading the Bible and include at least one Question & Answer session. For long sessions, we add Q&As every 20 minutes or so.
b. What are False Christs, False Gospels, False Apostles? (20-90 minutes). We present and discuss the false christ, false gospel, false apostle Scriptures from the Bible and the signs and warnings about a false Christ from Scripture. This presentation is about 20-30 minutes and is good for Sunday morning services or Sunday school. We sometimes combine a short testimony and this presentation. We compare the Mormon Jesus to the Biblical Jesus.
c. LDS Temples: Essential for Mormon Salvation/Exaltation (60-90 minutes including Q&A). We walk listeners through the plan of salvation according to Mormonism and the Biblical Jesus’ plan. Then, without disrespecting LDS beliefs, we explain the purpose of LDS temple and explain the ordinances that happen there and why. Michael and Lynn Wilder worked in an LDS temple for 10 years. So did son Micah for a couple of months before his LDS mission to Florida.
d. 7 Reasons We Left Mormonism (60-90 minutes including Q&A). This presentation is based on our 7 Reasons book and covers 7 doctrinal differences that caused us to rethink Mormonism. Some are: LDS continuing revelation to Mormon prophets, Bible is fallible, salvation requires human effort and LDS temples, marriage and polygamy are eternal, LDS Church is the only true church.
e. Loving and Teaching Mormon Missionaries the Gospel of Grace (60-90 minutes including Q&A). This presentation points out major doctrinal differences and gives suggestions of Scriptures to share when inviting, loving, and teaching LDS missionaries.
Feel free to combine topics for workshops up to 3 hours or for more than one session.
