I read the entire book online in one night. I truly appreciate you information as my children and I were about to make a big mistake by being baptized mormon in the nehalem ward, after several years as non-denominational christians. My husband was not as easily fooled being roman catholic. I did find a few gramatical errors in the online book, but they were easy to read past as they were very minor. I found the people of the ward to be very warm-hearted and convinving. I truly thought there was something missing, but couldn't put my finger on it. I knew there were a few things that I did not agree with, but I though it was just me, as you said in your book.
I dont know how I stumbled upon your site that evening. I was looking up LDS homeschooling and all of the sudden the computer took over and your site poped up while I was in the bathroom. I came back to find your book on my screen.
I now have a meeting set up with the missionaries who think they are coming for another lesson. I have warned them that I did research online and have over 2 pages of questions, but they do not know what questions or what they are about to undergo at our meeting. With any luck, I will be able to get them to question also, or at least one of them who does not appear to be as commited as he trys to portray.
Please pray for this meeting next week that Jesus will work through me to help guide the lost back to him. I truly appreciate your information. I dont know where we would be without it. my marraige was starting to get very shady and they kept telling me it was the devil in him trying to make me run from the truth and that in time he would come around to the "true" church too.
My husband would also like to thank you for rescuing his family. I am telling you this because you need to know how much impact your story has on people and how it changed our lives forever. We would really like to thank you in person someday and meet the man who helped jesus save us from such a wonderfully masked death. Thank you from the bottoms of all of our hearts!
God bless you!
Tracy and family
Wow! What a great story!
One word of warning. The missionaries are _not_ going to hear what you are saying. And be careful that you don't come out of the meeting confused. If I had my druthers, I'd rather you cancelled the meetings with them until you got your spiritual feet under you. If you just can't bring yourself to do that, I am praying that during the meeting you will sense how impossible it is to continue dealing with the missionaries. They are trained not to listen to anything, but just to press on with their presentations and their appeals for you to be baptized.
