Grace Proclaimed

Please pray for Aaron and Leroy as they travel to SLC for the 174th Annual LDS Convention to proclaim grace and the gospel. I've known Aaron for a couple of years now, and his heart is burdened for those caught within the lies of Mormonism and don't comprehend God's amazing grace. Please pray they will be bold and winsome, humble and compassionate--and that God's sheep among the LDS will hear the Gospel and believe.

Update: Aaron is home--read about his weekend in SLC. Oh, and his photo made it into the Utah Statesman.

TulipGirl,
I'm curious as to how they choose to proclaim it. I have a Mormon friend who sent out an email to friends after last conference regarding the supposedly Christian... I don't even know what to call them. Detractors, at best. It was horrible. Supposed preachers shouting at the LDS families as they approached the meeting places. Screaming what would be considered heresies by them about Joseph Smith. (Would you listen to someone screaming epithets about the Apostle Paul?) Some even had obtained Mormon garments and simulated wiping their bottoms with them - can you imagine a Christian doing that with a yarmulke? I felt I had to apologize on behalf of all Christians for the obscene behavior of these people to my friend. I must say the Mormon people are not the enemy. Even if you disagree with the theology, the average people, the faithful attending conference are not the ones you have a problem with, it would be the leadership, the policymakers. I hope and pray that anyone going to Salt Lake to evangelize the Mormons do so with the same amount of grace that they show us when they come to our doorstep to share their faith.

You're right, AutMom, there have been some really ungracious, ungodly methods of "evangelism."

I really respect Aaron--he has a heart for the LDS and comes across humble and kind. I encourage you to read his update from the weekend in SLC.

And you are right--the Mormon people are not the enemy. But I believe them to be ensnared in doctrines that are pulling them away from Christ and His gracious Gospel. We had a lot of LDS friends when John was active duty in the military. And yet, it broke my heart to see how caught up they were in earning their salvation and how they really had no clue about God's grace--both grace in salvation and grace in living.
