Below we provide the text of a tract we
distribute to those who ask us, "Why do you do this?"
while we are passing out tracts and witnessing to people in Salt
Lake City, Mesa, Arizona, or other places.
You have asked why I would be
taking my time to share Gods truth with you. Many people do
not understand what would motivate me to pass out tracts and
share with those who already clam a religious, and in fact,
specifically Christian, faith. Let me explain.
1) My motivation is love; first
and foremost for God, and because of this, for those I honestly
believe to be in need of Gods truth. I believe God is
glorified when His truth is proclaimed, and since I love Him, I
do desire to see Him glorified. As the Scripture says, "
Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God" (1 Cor.
2) I honestly believe that the
teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are
false; so much so that to believe in those teachings is to deny
Gods truth, and to reject the Gospel. This is not merely my
"feeling," but is the result of comparing Mormon
teachings with the clear truths of the Bible. You may disagree
with my conclusion, but the important thing to remember is that I
honestly believe Mormonism to be a false system that cannot give
true salvation to anyone.
3) I believe that if you care for
someone, you will seek what is best for them. If I see someone in
physical danger, I must seek to help them, In the same way, if I
see someone in spiritual danger I must warn them and try to be of
assistance to them. And so it is with Mormon people. I believe
that the Latter-day Saints have been deceived, and are in grave
If I love the LDS people, how can
I sit by in silence? I must warn them of the dangers of following
the teachings of false prophets such as Joseph Smith and Brigham
Young. I must warn them that Mormonism preaches a false God, a
false Christ and a false Gospel.
I realize that many people will
reject my message and my offer to help though my proclamation and
discussion of the truth of God. I realize that many people will
be angry with me for even trying! But again, if I care I will put
up with the insults and the anger, for my Lord put up with far
more because of His love for me.
So I ask you to hear me out as one
who cares for you. I am here because "the love of Christ
compels me" to share with you (2Cor. 5:14). And if my words
are not enough, will you heed some wise counsel from one of your
own leaders, Brigham Young? He said, "I say to the whole
world, receive truth, no matter who presents it to you. Take up
the Bible, compare the religion of the Latter-day Saints with it,
and see if it will stand the test."
