This is much what we as members do with The Book of Mormon. The sweet knowledge it had brought us has given us great joy. We want all to "try it."
Now there are some things with Mormonism that has occurred in the past which cause people to be weary of reading the sacred book.
I have the unique privilege to labor in North Carolina. With it, comes the great opportunity to talk with leaders of other faiths. I have learned much from them, and would not have grown if it weren't for them. They have a problem when I say that "I KNOW" this is the truth. I have mentioned how important the Truth was in a previous post. One of the people I talked to agreed with me, and stated that the truth is based on facts. He said, "The truth is always based on the facts. I am not convinced that the facts your religion presents is the truth based on the many inconsistencies throughout the history of Mormonism concerning its leaders and its writings." (emphasis and underline added) The combination of underlined words forms a complete sentence. This sentence is the objection by any who have objections. It reads, "I am not convinced your religion presents the truth based on the history concerning its leaders and its writings."
Basically, they said I don't think your religion is true. It is because of it's history. Believe it or not, this is a concern for a lot of people. Often times we want to argue with them, but contention is not the way of the Lord. So the question which comes to mind then is "how do you answer those questions then?" The answer is simple.
1.) Witness of Christ: “The Book of Mormon is the keystone in our witness of Jesus Christ, who is Himself the cornerstone of everything we do. It bears witness of His reality with power and clarity.”
2.) Fulness of doctrine: “The Lord Himself has stated that the Book of Mormon contains the ‘fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.’ (D&C 20:9[;27:5].) … In the Book of Mormon we will find the fulness of those doctrines required for our salvation. And they are taught plainly and simply so that even children can learn the ways of salvation and exaltation.”
