How to Handle Mormon Missionaries
A Mormon missionary can be quite tough to handle if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you are a Christian that believes in the true word of the Lord, you probably already know that Mormons are not at all the sort of people that you want to be talking to. The important thing to do when faced with a Mormon is to try and guide them to the right path. In order to help you out in this endeavor, here are a few tips on how you should behave if you are ever caught in sticky situation such as this.
Give Them a Card
Write down the true word of the Lord on a card and give it to them. Once you have given it to them, walk off after telling them that you are too busy to talk. The fact of the matter is that Mormons are not allowed to read literature that is “Anti-Mormon”. This term can be used to refer to anything that calls a spade a spade and refers to their beliefs in the manner that is supposed to be used in situations like these. A card can be a useful and quick way to get them to read something that would help them question their beliefs because of the fact that the information presented would be concise instead of being too overwhelming as it often is when it is a more long form sort of thing.
Not everyone has the knowledge necessary to talk to Mormons and tell them how they should be approaching the beautiful religion of Christianity in a manner that would not besmirch the name of Christ. Furthermore, many people have the knowledge but might not have the inclination towards a conversation that would make them feel like they need to question their beliefs a little more and not just accept the propaganda that has been shoved down their throats all their lives. If you don’t have the knowledge or the inclination for a talk of this nature, what you can do instead is suggest movies for them to watch. These movies can give them a true representation of what Mormonism truly is. The fact of the matter is that they often don’t have a clear view of what they believe in because of the fact that the truth of their religion has been hidden from them. You can help them learn the truth.
One thing that a lot of people do wrong when talking to Mormon missionaries is that they end up getting hostile or aggressive. Never do this, it will just alienate people that you are trying to bless with the true word of God. The important thing to remember is that the more comfortable someone feels, the more likely it will be that your message will end up resonating with them. Hence, try to invite them into your home and make them feel at ease.
