Discourses of Joseph Smith, pg. 172; “…preach Jesus Christ and him crucified; not to contend with others on account of their faith, or systems of religion, but pursue a steady course. This I delivered by way of commandment; and all who observe it not, will pull down persecution upon their heads, while those who do, shall always be filled with the Holy Ghost; this I pronounced as a prophecy, and sealed with hosanna and amen. (HC 2:431.)”
Psalm 123:3-4; “Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt. 4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.”
Every Mormon missionary is breaking Joseph Smith’s rules. When the Mormons come to your door they’re telling you that Christianity is wrong. Isn’t that contentious?
