    Charisma magazine has reported the findings of the Barna Research Group (BRG) on the witnessing habits of Christians in various denominations. George Barna discovered that only one out of three adults in Protestant
    churches witnessed to a nonbeliever last year. He discovered that Pentecostal, Assemblies of God, and Mormons were the most active in religious endeavors. When it came to Bible reading, Pentecostals at 75% were
    the most active. The least active Bible readers were Catholics, Episcopalians, and Lutherans. Mormons were more likely to read the Bible weekly than Protestants overall.

    If those statistics are true then why do the mormons believe such garbage as they do.
    Where were the Baptists in all this study.

    I think that is a shame when a cult reads the Bible and Witnesses more than true Christians.

    God Help Us. :( :(

    They read only the KJV. No other versions. Seriously. :rolleyes:

    Well, Mormons (we've got a passel of 'em out our way) spend more time reading the Book of Mormon than the KJV. Of course that is what gets them into theological trouble.

    And the angel that revealed the golden plates to Joseph Smith was named "Moroni" (which I always pronounce "moron - I" to the chagrin of my fellow LDS soldiers in the unit. :eek:

    Additional note about Moroni. He claims he was once a man. However, based on the scriptures I'v read and what I've been taught, angels are angels and men are men. Mankind do not become angels upon their death and angels (contrary to the cinema) do not become fully human. (Though of course they could appear as human if the Lord deems it.)


    If Joseph Smith saw anything (which I highly doubt) it definitely wasn't a messenger of God.
