Witnessing Tip of the Day

03 August

August 3 – Acts 3:22-23;  ‘For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.  And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.’


The question today is this:  why is the apostle Peter being quoted in the Book of Mormon some 580 years before he was born?  Notice what the ‘prophet Nephi’ had to say and compare it with what Peter said in Acts.


1 Nephi 22:20 says; ‘And the Lord will surely prepare a way for his people, unto the fulfilling of the words of Moses, which he spake, saying: A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass that all those who will not hear that prophet shall be cut off from among the people.’

    you are very right about that.i always believed in the lds church but when i was a missinary i was asked questions i couldnt anwser so i did some deep research on early church history and found out things i was never told about the early church.when i came home i told my perants what i had found out and showed them..we all had our names removed from the church rolls and i called the people that i had converted and told them and apoligized for what i had done and gave them the information..they to left the church..i know find out that in the usa people are not jioning the church because they to are finding the history of the true church and not falling for the lyes

      We are so happy for you that you got out! From what we’ve been told by other ex-missionaries, around 50% leave the church when they get home. It’s usually because they’ve been asked by non-Mormons to answer questions about the history of the Church.
      I hope you’ve been able to find a good biblically based church who preaches the truth. If you’d like to share your story we sure could use it for our testimony section!

    Ronald – Praise the Lord!!! I too left the church after being born and raised in it for 26 years. I too was asked the hard questions about the history and researched it as well. It would be great to read your story on the testimony page.

    You can check out my testimony under “Camden”. Not sure how to get to it, Michelle can tell you how.

    (I just reflected on how “lame” it was when I was growing up and would go to the podium to “bear my testimony” on fast Sunday. I can’t believe now, that for so many years my testimony was, “I know this church is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I know the Book of Mormon is true”. Why wasn’t I saying things like, “I know that God loves me. I know that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I know that He has prepared a place for me in Heaven”.)

    Michelle – Don’t forget the “Oh wretched soul that I am” plagerism, now that is a good one!

      Camden and others –

      Go to the top of the homepage and in the pull down menu look for ex-Mormon testimonies. 🙂
